We are thrilled to announce that Miskelly Furniture has partnered with a NEW television series, “Fix It & Finish It” which will begin airing across the nation in September 2014. The series takes an unfinished room project in a home that is in need of a little help, and will be fixed up and revamped. Miskelly’s was asked to donate furniture for families in need of help on their renovations. The crew will be in Mississippi renovating and filming 11 different homes over the next several weeks.

So far, Miskelly Furniture has been involved with three exciting home makeovers in the Jackson Metro Area. It’s an awesome feeling to wake up knowing that you will be a part of something that makes another person’s life just a little better. So many amazing people have chipped in for this worthwhile endeavor, and we are thankful!

Oh yeah, if you see the Miskelly truck on the road, give our guys a honk and a wave! They do such a great job and we are proud to have them on our team as they deliver items to these homes. We’ll keep you updated on the progress on our Facebook page. Go check it out to see behind-the-scene photos with host Antonio Sabato, Jr. To see the complete transformations, watch Fix It & Finish It debuting in September on WLBT!

Miskelly’s is looking forward to working with the TV crew and all of the families these next few weeks. Take a look at some of photos we’ve snapped so far:

Consider an Eclectic Style for Your Home

provencial_Bed

Eclectic style reflects a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish. Eclectic style interior design is the way to go if you just can’t choose one style. This interesting mix of furniture and accessories is becoming popular, and you should give it a try in your own home.

An eclectic room should feature pieces with commonalities to create harmony within the design. The color schemes used can be diverse, but as a general rule, neutral colors are important both as a backdrop and for large furniture pieces. Perfect colors for this style include white, cream, gray, black, brown and tan.

While fully matching pieces can create a classic continuity, some of the most beautiful spaces are pulling in things from all over the place. You don’t want a random assortment of furnishings, but a planned design; a shared theme should tie everything together.

The key to making it all work is picking elements that offer similar colors and finishes. For example, try putting a dark brown sofa in a room and also a vibrant, red contemporary accent chair that has a dark brown finish on the arms and legs. Put red throw pillows on the brown sofa.  Since the chair has a dark brown finish on the arms and legs, it ties in with the color of the sofa. The red color also complements the shades found in the throw pillows.

An eclectic styled room is brought together when the furnishings relate to each other in color, pattern, texture, finish or shape. Consider eclecticism next time you’re shopping in Miskelly Furniture. This blend of furnishing styles is great way to redecorate a room or try something new. Come see us and let us help you create your eclectic styled room!

How to Pick a Color Palette for Your Home

Picking the right interior color combinations for the home interior can be a challenge, though a welcome one if you are keen on transforming plain rooms into inspiring living spaces.

Here are a few tips on how to go about picking your color palette.

  • Know what you want

The secret to making the right choice is allowing yourself to enjoy the experience. You must know that you don’t have to abide by the color wheel or color matching theories to get it right. Color choices are very subjective so when it comes to decorating your interiors, the last thing you want is to pick someone else’s colors!

Try to resist the temptation to start off with paint color. Because paint is inexpensive and the fact that it can be matched to virtually every other color, it is advisable to start your search with less flexible elements of the room such as furniture, tile, fabrics and wallpaper. You can then base your paint colors on these.

If you must have multiple hues in your palette–something almost everyone adores–you should consider mixing values to stop the color combinations from becoming too chaotic. Choose one dark color, one bright color, and a light color and select the dominant hue in any room based on personal preferences. Make sure you feel comfortable with these colors.

If it’s your first time or if you’re unsure of what to pick, test your options first. Sketch your home and mark out every room. Then list the items that will be in each room such as decorations, furniture and carpet. Gather paint chips that represent the color of these items and compare the chips to see how the items will match once you set the room.

You probably have an idea of the positive and negative attributes of each room. List the pros and cons of each room’s features, then find the positive focal points of each room. Use color choices to highlight positives and lessen the impact of negatives. Think about how each room will flow into the next. Also consider the mood you’d like to create and the items you intend to incorporate into the color palette.

For greater success, plan from one room to the next and use one color for different portions in all rooms.

  • Where to start

There are several ways of kicking off your color scheme selection.

  • You can start with the biggest, most central room in the house (the living room is a perfect candidate.) If you’re undecided on a color for the chosen room, try a soft, neutral hue. The modern charcoal gray is a great choice and can also be used in dining rooms and hallways. Shades of white are also recommended.
  • Alternatively, you can start with the room that you already have a concrete plan for. If you’ve already made up your mind to have a spicy red, yellow, or orange sofa in the living room, start from there. As you move out from the bold-colored item, you should consider softer, more subdued hues, though you can also put bold colors next to each other.

  • Consider the lighting

Color is a reflection of light so you must always consider the impact of natural light or light from bulbs and lamps on fabrics, furniture, paint and other surfaces.

  • Bring it all together with Miskelly’s rugs, throw pillows and accessories

There are several ways of adding color with simple, small touches. Fabrics and accessories are excellent for this. Use rugs, throw pillows, wall art, and other accent pieces to add pattern and invite color to your interiors. Express your personality!

Memorial Day 2014: Remembering Those We’ve Lost

Memorial Day came into existence following the Civil War to honor the fallen soldiers from both the Union and Confederate sides of America’s most tragic and violent conflict. Originally called “Decoration Day,” the early summer holiday officially became known as Memorial Day in the mid 20th century. Now, Memorial Day serves as a tribute to all servicemen and servicewomen that have lost their lives while protecting American liberty.

Memorial Day 2014

Although to many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer holiday season, the traditions of this reverent holiday go far beyond backyard barbecues and sunscreen. The graves of fallen soldiers and military personnel are traditionally decorated with flowers on Memorial Day as a sign of respect. In many cities throughout the United States, parades are held showcasing current and former servicemen and women.

Amid the fun and excitement of Memorial Day, it is important to stop and remember those in the United States Armed Forces who have lost their lives in the struggle for our country’s freedom. Without their sacrifice, our comforts and luxuries would never have come to be. If you have the opportunity, thank an active or former serviceman or servicewoman on Memorial Day.

It’s time to decorate for summer and you want your home to be cheerful, inviting and gorgeous. Bringing bright and lively colors into your home’s decor is a sure fire way to welcome the summer season. By decorating with these top five summer decor colors, you’ll be able to transform your home in a way that brings it to life and gives it great style.

Sunny yellow is without a doubt one of the top five summer decor colors and is a must have for your home-space. Bright yellow will cheer up any environment and is a fun, vibrant accent color. Keep in mind that sunny yellow itself may be a bit much in a large amount, but adds the perfect pop for summertime. Pairing yellow with a soft neutral color such as white or gray will help it pop even more.

Bring it to Life with Light Green
