Stylish Dining in an Open Floor Plan

Written by riverworks marketing

For many families, having a formal dining room is a thing of the past. With the popularity of the open floor plan comes the need for a dining space that has a more casual approach and can blend seamlessly with the rest of the home. While it's important to define spaces in an open floor plan the overall look should flow from one area to the next. Here are five ways to add style to your open dining space while creating a cohesive look throughout your home.

Start by choosing the right pieces. If you're having trouble blending finishes with existing furniture then opt for upholstered seating. A basic linen softens the space and works with everything, creating a seamless transition to a living space or seating area.

Style your china cabinet with more than a display of dishes. Stacked dishes give off a casual vibe. Pop in artwork and decorative pieces to add color. Pull inspiration from colors and fabrics in the spaces around it and finish with some greenery or fresh flowers.

Open up the space. If you have a china cabinet that just feels too big or too formal try removing the top and using only the base. Hang a gallery wall of artwork above it for a less structured look. The space will instantly feel more relaxed and become more like an extension of the space around it.

Add flow with lighting. Replace standard light fixtures with statement-making chandeliers that complement the style in the overall space. Hanging different but coordinating lighting helps pull each area together while giving each space its own look.

Mix materials. When you combine elements such as metal and wood it feels less like a matching set and more like a collected grouping, making it blend with easily with other pieces in the home. A wood sideboard with a metal hutch or a table with a wood top and metal base are both easy options.

With these simple tips, you can create a distinct style in your dining space, even with an open floor plan. Visit our showroom for more interior design tips that we can customize specifically for you and your home.

Five Ideas for Decorating a Blank Wall

Written by

Everyone has that one space they struggle to decorate. It isn't always easy to know what to use, especially if you're not feeling inspired. So we've put together a few ideas to help you find that inspiration. If you've been looking at a blank wall in your house for far too long then this is for you. Here are five ways to add style to that blank wall in your home, once and for all.

Large scale artwork is probably the easiest solution.  Adding a single piece of artwork to a blank wall instantly changes the whole space. Just don't make the mistake of using a piece that's too small. Go big and center it on the wall. And remember, when it comes to large artwork, the more dramatic the better.

So you've already hung artwork in the space but you're still left with a lot of empty wall space. Consider metal wall decor. These are often found in groupings and can add a cool new textural element to the room.

Mix things up with a gallery wall. Gather a few of your favorite pieces of artwork then mix in a mirror or even a candle sconce for interest. Vary sizes, color and texture for a collected look. If you prefer a more uniform look then hang a set of coordinated prints in a large grid.

decorating walls Kincaid mirrors

Kincaid

Start with mirrors. Hang a set of large mirrors across the wall and instantly open up the space. Choose a mirror with a unique feature such as a hanging chain or a sculptural look rather than the standard frame. Layer in artwork and fresh flowers or just keep it simple with sleek lighting.

Skip the artwork and hang an interesting wallpaper. Wallpaper isn't what it used to be and many are now made to be easily peeled away when you're ready for a change. What a fun way to add a punch of pattern or color and make that blank wall the focal point of the space! If you're feeling adventurous then go ahead and hang a mirror or a unique artwork for a special finishing touch. 

You don't have to keep looking at that boring blank wall. Find your inspiration with one of these options or visit our design center for more ideas on how to decorate any space in your home.

One Bed Three Styled Ways

Written by

There are so many things to love about upholstered beds. They're a great way to break up a matching bedroom set, they always soften the space and they're just so comfortable. Best of all? They're so versatile! You can create so many different looks using a classic upholstered bed and to prove it we've taken one bed and styled it three ways.  

bed style rustic casual

art / chandelier / bed / nightstand & chest

A rustic casual bedroom has all the comforts you want in a restful space. Distressed furniture contrasts well with the softness of a curvy bed draped in fabric. Artwork inspired by a vintage map gives the space a sense of history while industrial style lighting adds a modern vibe. 

bed style modern classic

chandelier / art / bed / nightstand & dresser

You can never go wrong with a timeless look. Classic linen paired with rich wood tones is always a winning combination. Put a modern twist on this look with statement lighting. A chandelier or pendant with a structural quality always feels modern. Quirky artwork will give the space personality and this painting has a fun farmhouse look.

bed style luxury

art / chandelier / bed / nightstand & dresser  

A space doesn't have to be over the top to be luxurious. Choosing traditional pieces that repeat the soft curve of the bed creates an elegant look. Go glam with lighting that practically sparkles like this gold banded chandelier. Contrast the traditional look of these pieces with modern artwork in bright hues for a unexpected burst of color.

Designing a bedroom with an upholstered bed lets you create a space with your own unique style. Visit our showroom today to start the process of designing your bedroom with a custom upholstered bed from Kincaid Furniture.

The Power of Pattern

Written by riverworks marketing

There's a reason pattern is so powerful. Pattern has the ability to completely change the feel of a space and lets you express your individual style. For example, you can give your home a more modern feel with crisp geometrics but a paisley will lend itself to a more traditional look. Whether you like a little or a lot, pattern is a design element that allows you to create a custom look. Let’s take a look at how these three spaces each use pattern in a different way.

Chattanooga Kincaid patterns

Minimal pattern pops in a bright white space. Black pillows with a bright floral pattern create high contrast against a white sofa. The colors are repeated on the chair with a fun chevron. This simple pairing takes this neutral space to the next level.

Kincaid pattern pillows

Shades of grey can quickly become monotonous without pattern. In this space repetition is key. From the bold pattern on the chairs to the pillows used throughout, the room has a great flow. The use of contrast creates dimension which is important when mixing neutrals. 
 

Kincaid mixed patterns

Kincaid

This space makes great use of a trio of patterns in layered shades of blue. An important thing to remember about mixing patterns is to vary scale. The smallest pattern on the chair could easily fall flat without the large pattern on the rug and the bold pattern on the accent chair. Patterns have more impact when they don't compete.

There are so many interesting ways to work pattern into your home. Pillows and rugs are obvious solutions but there are other creative ways to style your home with pattern.

curtains / lamp / mirror / art / console

  • Patterned trim on curtains or pillows is a fun way to punch up a solid fabric.
  • Lamps and accessories are an easy way to try a new pattern in a space.
  • Decorative fretwork makes a basic mirror a suddenly interesting piece.
  • Wood carvings serve as pattern while adding texture.
  • Accent pieces often feature unique designs that can add a punch of pattern to any space.

Don't underestimate the power of pattern. If your home needs a refresh then visit our showroom or call to schedule an appointment with a designer. We can help you choose the perfect pattern pairings for your home.

How to Create a Luxurious Bedroom

Written by

If there's one room in your home where you deserve a little luxury it's your bedroom. More than a place to sleep, the bedroom is where you begin and end your day. Dreaming of your own personal luxury retreat? It's totally possible with just a few easy changes. Turn your bedroom into that luxurious space you've always wanted with these five tips.

Eastern Accents bedding

Eastern Accents

Start with the bed. Obviously, you need a great mattress. But what you put on the bed is just as important. Don't skimp on blankets and pillows. Think layers! You should be able to sink into your bed at the end of the day. Layer your bed with high-quality bedding then add plush pillows and throws in rich textures. Drape a faux fur throw over the foot of the bed so you can easily grab it on cool nights.

Riverside nightstand

Our next tip may sound simple, but it's important. Clear the clutter! If there's one thing luxurious spaces always have in common it's a lack of clutter. With all the chaos of day-to-day life, you need a space where you can clear your mind before you go to sleep. So remove all those unnecessary items from your nightstand and keep it simple with a lamp and fresh flowers.

eastern accents mirror

Eastern Accents

Hang a statement mirror. An interesting mirror with a polished frame has a posh feel. Place it over the bed to create a focal point or hang it above a dresser as an alternative to a standard mirror. It will create a pretty focal point and double as artwork.

Kincaid ottoman

Kincaid

Every bedroom feels a little more luxurious with extra seating. If you have the space then create a separate conversation area with a pair of chairs and an ottoman. Even if you only have room for a single chair choose one that's cozy and comfortable. The point is to carve out a little space in your bedroom that's just for you. Style it with a chic pillow, and if room allows, a pretty ottoman so you can kick back and relax with a good book.

Eastern Accents lighting

Eastern Accents

Layer lighting. Overhead lighting simply isn't enough for a bedroom. There are many ways to incorporate different levels of light. Place lamps on nightstands or install sconce lights on either side of the bed. Put overhead lighting on a dimmer and add lamps near seating or any dark pockets of the space. Layered lighting gives you options and great lighting always makes a space feel more high-end.

Creating a luxurious bedroom is about more than how it looks. When all of these elements come together it creates a space that makes you feel good. This will result in your own retreat where you'll sleep well every night. What's more luxurious than that?

Tips for Decorating Large Spaces

Written by

There's a lot of advice out there about decorating small spaces. Understandably so, since small spaces can be tricky and you want to be sure you're choosing pieces that are multi-functional and won't overcrowd your home. However, it can be just as challenging to decorate a large home and often requires a different approach. So if you're planning on moving to a bigger space, or struggling with the one you have, then keep reading. These are some of our best tips for decorating large spaces.

Kincaid bedroom set

Kincaid

Use furniture with height to anchor the space. A poster bed or canopy bed will create a beautiful focal point in a space with a high ceiling. If you prefer a bed that's a little less grand then anchor the room with a large cabinet or armoire.

Kincaid lighting

Kincaid

Use dramatic lighting. Highlight the special architectural features of your home by incorporating interesting lighting that will draw the eye up and around the space. Use this as an opportunity to bring new elements into the space. For example, this orb light contrasts well with the exposed wood beams.

Uttermost large spaces

Uttermost

In a space with vaulted ceilings use upholstery with high backs. Low backed chairs and sofas can be dwarfed by tall ceilings. Group chairs and sofas into conversation areas then layer in rugs to pull it all together.

Kincaid wall art

Kincaid

Take advantage of extra wall space and create an eclectic gallery wall. But don't stop with just a few pieces. Go big and don't be afraid to mix paintings with pretty mirrors or other interesting pieces. Anchor the space between windows with pairs of prints.  

Kincaid curtains

Kincaid

Add a dramatic effect with curtains. Highlight large windows by taking curtains all the way to the ceiling. The softness will make the space more inviting and help absorb sound. Simple curtain rods with linen panels is a timeless look for any space.

Visit our showroom for more guidance on decorating your home. No matter the size we have plenty of tips and tricks that will help you pull it all together.

 

How often do you flip through the pages of a decorating magazine and see a living room with a matching set of tables? Hardy ever, is probably what you're thinking. That's because interior design isn't about “matching” sets. It's about creating a look that's unique, distinctive and thoughtfully put together. Follow these tips to learn how to mix tables in your home like a pro.

Uttermost Kincaid cocktail tables

Uttermost / Kincaid

Mimic shapes but don't repeat them. A curvy drum table is a perfect complement to a sleek round cocktail table and it's a chic alternative to the expected end table. The warm patina of this table blends well with finishes such as cherry and pecan making it a fun piece to pair with antiques.

Uttermost Kincaid cocktail ottoman

Kincaid / Uttermost

Use contrasting textures. It's easy to introduce new elements to a living room with an upholstered cocktail ottoman. This little lucite and brass beauty adds a bit of glam to any space. Lucite is so posh and a touch of gold is a great way to add some warmth to a neutral space.

accent cocktail tables

Uttermost / Kincaid

Match metal for metal. Take your standard cocktail table to the next level with a trendy accent piece that features interesting details or a unique design. This angular table in chrome blends well with the clean lines of the cocktail table and its silver metal base. It's the perfect mix of modern and classic.

natural accent tables

Kincaid / Uttermost

Balance styles. A piece made with “raw” materials such as iron and reclaimed wood is the perfect contrast to more polished and traditional tables. Use this pairing to add character and depth to an otherwise one-dimensional space.

wood blend tables Chattanooga

Kincaid / Uttermost

Wood finishes should blend, not match. Pay attention to the color tones. This is an easy indicator for how well pieces will work together. For example, grey finishes tend to have cool undertones and pieces such as oak and cherry tend to have warm undertones. Keep wood tones similar to seamlessly blend different styles.

Get the look you really want! Shake up your style with one of these fun and unique pieces. Start with just one piece or let us help you put together a whole new look.

We are all for getting creative when it comes to decorating. Experimenting with a new look or fabric is a great way to find your unique style. Sometimes that means stepping outside the box and breaking the rules. But there are some decorating rules that always apply and following these rules will keep you from making some common decorating mistakes. Read on to find out how easy they are to fix!

uttermost artwork

Uttermost

Skimpy artwork. Artwork that's too small just ends up looking lost and out of place. If you're going to use small prints on a big wall then use several of them to create a grid that will fill the space and create major impact. Another option is to replace small prints all together with one large piece.

Kincaid light fixtures

Kincaid

Poorly lit spaces. Too little light can leave a room feeling cave-like while lighting that is too bright can feel institutional. Create pools of light with strategically placed table lamps, floor lamps and wall sconces. Even a space that's flooded with natural light during the day will need lamps to create a cozy glow in the evening hours.

Kincaid rugs

Kincaid

Using rugs that are too small. Rugs that aren't big enough for a space simply look like an afterthought and make the room look disjointed. As a general rule a rug should be big enough that it touches all the furniture in a seating area. If a piece doesn't quite reach then the rug isn't big enough. It's always better to err on the side of a rug being too big than too small.  

 Kincaid pattern furniture

Kincaid

Using one fabric on everything. You shouldn't use the same fabric on all the seating in your living room. It's just too monotonous. Instead, choose at least three fabrics with varying patterns but coordinating colors to add interest to the space. The eyes will have different places to land and the space will have a pretty layered look.

Riverside sofa table

Riverside

Pushing all the furniture up against the wall. This leaves an awkward expanse of space in the middle of the room. Arrange furniture so that it creates conversation areas. Start by floating the sofa in the room across from the main focal point. Then add chairs and others pieces in such a way that it creates zones throughout the space. Create a pretty look behind the sofa with a sofa table. It's also a great spot to add some extra lighting.

If you've made one of these common decorating mistakes, don't worry. You never have to go it alone no matter what kind of decorating dilemma you're facing. We're always here to help you create your best and most beautiful home.
