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.

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

Easy Spring Decorating Ideas from Miskelly Furniture

Spring is one of our favorite times of the year! It’s a time to set a happy, uplifting mood in your home through creative spring decorating. Miskelly’s has made it super easy to shop and decorate for spring 2014; not only do we have a great selection of products that are perfect for this time of year, but we’re also offering home decor tips that you can use to liven up your home and match the season.

Create a Completed Spring Look

No need to settle on altering just one room in your home — for a fresh, unified look, you can create a completed, matching spring decor theme by simply adding a few minor touches.

First, take a good look at your living room, dining room, bedrooms, outdoor patio, mantel and front door/area of your home. Then, pick a pastel color or two that you want to focus one (Pantone’s Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid.) Next, add a minor touch of spring to your living room, dining room, bedrooms, outdoor patio, mantel and front door/area of your home by selecting coordinated pieces in your chosen color(s) that complement the overall decor.

A few easy pieces to decorate with include:

  • Artwork and wall hangings
  • Centerpieces
  • Lamps and lamp shades
  • Small rugs
  • Various accessories
  • Flowers for your mantel and outdoor patio

By simply adding a few items to each area of your home that complement each other, you’re quickly and easily creating a unified spring look on the exterior and interior of your home.

Accent What You Have

Accent pillows are a simple way to accent your furniture and add a pop of spring. For a “springy” look, go for yellow, green, or blue colors that accentuate your furnishings. Keep the colors light and inviting. Throw pillows work well in the living room and bedroom, and can be used as decorative seat cushions in the dining room or breakfast nook.

Let There Be Light

Bring your rooms to life by allowing more light to come into your home. Thin, light-colored curtains can help tremendously, letting more sunlight in. During the daytime, remember to open up your curtains; this instantly creates a warm, inviting and happy environment (your visitors will notice, too!)

Doing this also offers a glimpse into the beautiful outside world and more opportunities to view brightly-colored spring flowers and an abundance of the green grass and blue sky, even while you’re indoors.

Draw the curtains in your home so outdoor viewing is instantly indoor.

Offset Solid Colors

You may not always be able to change your furniture completely, but you can take advantage of solid colors–even dark ones–to effortlessly add a touch of spring. Incorporate patterned, bright-colored items to offset solid colors such as the pictured sideboard below. The addition of the round wall mirror, colored bottles, and picture frames instantly alter this ordinary piece of furniture to a have charming, springtime feel.

Miskellys: Decorating with Indigo

Colors within the home can influence our mood and our thoughts. Some experts say the color indigo is used to create a soothing scene and reduce stress. Some say it sparks the creative side of our brains and captures our imagination. Either way, indigo is one of the more popular colors in home décor this year. We believe it is a timeless color.

Indigo tends to speak serenity and majesty. It echoes a sense of tranquility while making a powerful statement; just a splash of indigo can instantly change the look and feel of a room. When a space is decorated in neutrals, it’s the perfect color to add to the equation. Somewhere between a true blue and a violet on the color spectrum, indigo is a rich color that you can easily incorporate into your home.

Not to mention, indigo is one of the most versatile colors in the spectrum; virtually all shades of blue can sit next to each other in harmony. This opens up the opportunity to mix different hues and patterns throughout a space with confidence.

Whether you’re looking to add color to your home for a “calming effect” or you simply love this rich color, indigo can make any room in your home look stylish. This vibrant and incredibly chic color is a decorating classic. From Miskelly Furniture, it’s easy to decorate with the color of the year. Take a look at a few pieces in-store with indigo and indigo accents:
