Wake Up Your Bedroom

The ultimate bedroom is the perfect blend of restful retreat and stylish sanctuary. While what’s beautiful and relaxing to each person differs, there are a few essential strategies that can help anyone create the bedroom of their dreams. Take your bedroom from blah to breathtaking with these easy updates.

FIND YOUR STYLE

Your bedroom can look as much or as little like the rest of your house as you want. Don’t feel limited to your current décor style. Sometimes a private space is a great place to try a new design aesthetic. Take a break from your traditional design roots and try on a more modern look with streamlined furnishings, solid color linens and minimal accessories. Or warm up your space by giving your contemporary style a rest and embracing more classic elements.

A gorgeous space originates by surrounding yourself with things you love. Begin with your favorite colors, finishes, and materials. Find a bed or headboard that speaks to you and layer on the most luxurious bed linens your budget will allow.

Choose one or two main colors and one or two accent colors, and stick with them throughout the room. If you want to incorporate patterns, select a dominant pattern and one or two supporting designs (of varying scale) for fabrics and bed linens. Want a crisp, clean look like that of a high-end hotel? Choose muted colors, high-quality cottons and stick to solids or subtle tone-on-tone patterns.

DESIGN WISELY

Give careful consideration to where you place your furnishings. Is everything visually balanced and within easy reach? Use lighting to illuminate your room and block out distracting outdoor lighting with drapery panels. Accent rugs protect hardwood floors while adding cushioning, warmth, and visual appeal.

PERSONALIZE YOUR SPACE

Make your bedroom uniquely yours by adding personal touches. Display your favorite photos, accessories and mementos, yet limit your choices for maximum impact. Too many items can make a room feel cluttered and overwhelmed.

CONQUER CLUTTER

An easy way to ensure the long-term beauty of your newly designed bedroom is to banish clutter. Here’s how:

Miskelly’s Third 2015 Season of Giving Recipient

Our third 2015 Season of Giving recipients are Charles and Kathy Harrell.

Charles and Kathy have taken in six siblings who were removed from their parents due to neglect.  The siblings were going to be separated. The girls would go to different foster homes and the boys to Piney Woods. Charles and Kathy were determined not to let that happen, so they stepped in and arranged for all six children to live with them.

The Harrells have a son of their own. The family has suddenly increased from three members to nine, and they live in a two-bedroom house.

With a full house and Christmas right around the corner, they were in need of a little help. Miskelly’s delivered a truckload of new furniture to the Harrell family. Headboards, chests and mattresses!

We are grateful for the opportunity to help the Harrell family, and hope they have a joyous Christmas together.

Memorial Day 2015: Honoring Those Who Gave the Greatest Sacrifice

Remembering Those We’ve Lost

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 (NASB)

Memorial Day first started following the Civil War. Citizens around the country would 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.

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 U.S., parades are held showcasing current and former servicemen and women.

Amid the fun and excitement of Memorial Day, it’s 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.
