Pretty Storage Pieces for the Bathroom

Written by

Bathroom storage is often limited to a closet and what you can fit inside the medicine cabinet. But honestly, is that ever really enough? Most people need more storage than what’s typically offered in a standard bathroom. Not to worry though. It’s easy to create more space for your things by simply adding a pretty piece of furniture. There’s a piece for your bathroom, no matter the size. These are a few of our favorites.

Riverside

This bookcase has sliding doors, which makes it very convenient, and adjustable shelves. A beautiful option in a cottage or coastal style bathroom, it’s the perfect place to stack towels and store toiletries. Use seagrass baskets or pretty bins to store things you want to keep out of sight.

Hammary

A mix of metal and wood makes this cabinet a great choice in a space with an industrial or modern look. Once it’s fully stocked with toiletries and necessities, mix in one or two decorative items to give it a little personality.

Hammary

This piece is perfect for a large bathroom in a home with high ceilings. This cabinet has presence and plenty of room to store everything you need. Items will be in full view in this cabinet, so be sure to display your prettiest things. Use decorative trays for your perfume and cologne bottles. Instead of folding towels, roll and stack them. Add a small vase of fresh flowers. Remember, everyday things can be stylish too.

Uttermost

This cabinet has a personality all its own. It would be a great addition to an eclectic home, especially for someone that loves color. With shelves, doors, and drawers, it has a place for things of all sizes. Open shelving gives you easy access to items used every day.

Use an accent chest in a small bathroom. With all those drawers, you can store much more than just toiletries. This might also be a great place to keep jewelry.  Display a few things on top in a tray or style it with a cool pair of lamps. This piece is sleek and airy and would look great in a home with a modern farmhouse vibe.

 

If you have a bathroom that you just can’t get organized, then try adding a stylish and functional cabinet or chest. Here at EF Brannon we have options to work in any space no matter the size or style. Come by and let us help you find just what you’re looking for.

Sofas & Recliners: Blending Styles

Written by

Shopping for new living room furniture? If you’re thinking about trying something different, then look beyond the matching set and try blending pieces with different looks. It’s easy to mix and match sofas and recliners when you pair styles with characteristics that blend with one another. Let’s take a look at these pairings and why they work together so well.

 

blending1

sofa / recliner

This sofa and recliner pair work so well together because they both have a sleek and tailored design. Not only do these pieces have similar arms, but they also have similar legs. The mix of fabrics in various shades of black and grey pull it together and give it an edgy masculine vibe.

 

blending2

sofa / recliner

This pairing is casual and cozy. Notice that both pieces have rolled arms, which are a little softer and sometimes more comfortable than straight arms. The worn looking leather adds an inviting texture to the stark white sofa. This pair works together because both pieces have a casual comfortable vibe.

 

blending3

sofa / recliner

Another way to pair a recliner with a white sofa is to go for a punch of color. A recliner that looks like a club chair is a fun accent. These pieces share a similar style in the arms and boxy back cushions. They are united by the repeated use of color on the toss pillows.

 

blending4

sofa / recliner

Incorporate pieces that are designed with classic details and you just can’t go wrong.  A recliner in brown leather is the perfect accent to a sofa with a timeless look such as this one. Design details such as tufting and nailhead trim never go out of style. 

 

 

Tips for blending sofas and recliners.

  • Forget matching. Choose styles that are different, but have one or two similarities.
  • Consider scale. One shouldn’t tower over the other.
  • Pull it together with fabrics. Repeat colors in pillows and accents in the room.
  • Consider arm style, leg style, and era.
  • If you can’t commit to color, then go with a brown leather recliner. You can keep it for years and it will work with practically anything.

Are you ready to mix and match? Let’s get started! We can help you pull it all together. Get more design advice by making an appointment with one of our designers.

Five Ways to Decorate a Blank Wall

Written by

Blank walls can be intimidating. They can also leave a space feeling uninspired and unfinished if left empty. Do your home and yourself a favor and fill in those blank spaces. There are endless ways to add style to a home by filling in those empty walls. Be inspired by some of our favorite ways to give your space some personality.

 

wall1

Paragon

One large statement piece is sometimes all you need. If your preferred look is clean and uncluttered, then hang a large decorative mirror. Mirrors work anywhere. Not only do statement mirrors add a polished look to a space but they also bounce light around the room.

 

wall2

Uttermost

Hang several small prints in a grid for high impact. You can fill an entire wall or just the space over a piece of furniture.  Get a little more personal by filling a grid of frames with a collection of black and white family photos or with travel photography from past vacations.

 

wall3

 

oil painting / girl / clock / flowers / star / map / abstract / basket / mirror / giclee

A gallery wall is always a great way to work some style and personality into your home. This is similar to a grid but is typically less structured. A gallery wall should showcase favorite artwork, treasured photographs, and even quirky objects.   

 

wall4

sconces / painting

Create a focal point that has symmetry by hanging a decorative mirror or a favorite piece of artwork then flanking it with a pair of sconces. These pieces are unified by the aged silver finish of the frames. Replace the candleholders with sconce lamps in a space the needs more lighting.

 

wall5

Paragon

Artwork doesn’t always mean a painting or a photograph. Consider a large wood or metal piece that will bring some texture to the room. Pieces like these antique tiles that look like they were salvaged from an old building add a sense of history.

Let us help you create one of these looks in your home. We’ll help you choose pieces that are all about your personal style. Let’s turn your house into your dream home. Visit our design center to get started today.

Decorating Kids' Spaces

Written by

Children need a space of their own--a spot in the house that’s all about them. Whether that’s their bedroom or a playroom, their surroundings should reflect their interests and inspire creativity for their growing minds. There are many options in artwork and decor for children’s spaces that will make them happy while adding style to your home.

If color boosts creativity, then these prints are perfect for a child’s room. They’re happy and bright and bring to mind sunny days. Hang them horizontally over a bed or vertically near a window. Draw on these colorful hues as inspiration for decorating the rest of the space.

These prints are fun and playful and perfect for the child with a four-legged best friend. The larger print is big enough to be used alone, and the trio of smaller prints would be perfect over a dresser or bed. These prints can be enjoyed by animal lovers of all ages.

Bring a fun and whimsical feel to a child’s space. This artwork has such a cool vibe and lots of texture. It’s a great piece for a teen’s room, especially if they’re sports-oriented. This piece is heavy on texture and would work well in a space with a modern, rustic look.

Kids’ bedding can be stylish too. Bold patterns like large stripes and oversized polka dots are so chic when paired with a mix of fun pillows. These coordinated collections take all the guesswork out of pulling together beautiful bedding.

 

Decorate your children’s rooms with as much style as the rest of the house. Their spaces should be well-designed too. Simply use decor that reflects their individual personalities and artwork that will encourage imagination. Because everyone, at every age, should have a beautiful space to call their own.

There are so many ways to work classic design into a space. When you start with pieces that will outlast any trend, you’ll have a look that’s versatile and will always be easy to update. One of our favorite classic looks is anything with tufting. Tufted pieces always look polished and work with casual looks just as well as more formal styles. Here are a few ways to work tufted pieces into your home that will give it timeless design.

  • You can never go wrong with a tufted sofa in linen or leather. When the main piece in your living space is classic then it’s easy to add and remove other pieces when you feel like it. Why commit to just one style in a room when you can blend several?
  • An accent chair is a fun way to try the tufted look. It can easily be moved around the house and adds an instant touch of style. Use one in the corner of a bedroom or try placing a pair of them in front of a fireplace for a symmetrical look.
  • Create that spa hotel feel in your bedroom with a tufted headboard. Upholstered headboards and beds create a luxurious vibe. Plus, they’re easily paired with any type of furniture.
  • You can get the tufted look in the kitchen too. Tufted barstools bring a soft and unexpected look to a space that’s normally filled with angular lines and rigid surfaces.
  • A tufted bench is the perfect stylish touch at the foot of the bed with a plush throw. It’s also a great option as seating at a dining table because it brings another element to the room.

When you decorate your space with a few classic pieces then you have a canvas you can work with for years, no matter how often your style changes. Visit our design center where you’ll find more inspiration for incorporating tufted pieces and other classic styles into your home.

A home office space shouldn't be all businesses. It should combine style and function. Many homes can't dedicate an entire room to an office, which means it has to fit in somewhere else. There are many places you can set up a work space in your home without sacrificing style.  Just because it’s functional, that doesn’t mean it can’t also be beautiful. Check out these stylish writing desks that are perfectly sized to fit into any type of space and add style to your home.

Place a writing desk in front of a window and be inspired by the outdoors while you work. A window-facing desk helps you stay distraction free and will provide plenty of light. This could be a window in a bedroom, living room, or even a hallway. You just want to be sure the space is large enough to accommodate a chair too.

If there isn’t a free window, then turn a blank wall into a useful space with a pretty writing desk and chair. Not only does this define a space as a work area but it also lets you turn an empty space into a useful and stylish area. Just be sure to style it with a few accessories so that it blends in with the rest of the space.

Place a writing desk behind a sofa in a living room. This gives you a piece that works double duty since it serves as a sofa table when not in use, but as a place to work when you bring out your laptop and pull up a chair.

More places to use a writing desk:

  • As a nightstand. Just pull up a chair when you need to work.
  • Next to the front door. It can serve as an entry table when not in use.
  • If you have a little extra space in the kitchen, add a writing desk and use it as the command center for your home.

Every home deserves a stylish and functional office space no matter what the size. With so many options you’re sure to find the perfect writing desk for your home, here in our showroom.

Five Ways to Incorporate Industrial Style

Written by

industrial1

 candle holder / cart / bed / cocktail table / end table / tv console

 

If you’re looking for a way to add instant character to your home, then consider incorporating an industrial piece. Industrial style furniture is typically made with a mix of metal and wood. While these pieces are usually heavily distressed, they still have a modern vibe. Distressed wood, hammered steel, and aged metal are all characteristics of rustic industrial style. Typically, these pieces have a lot of variation in the wood tones. This makes it very easy to mix with other wood finishes. Here are five ways to add industrial style to your home.

Rethink your accessories. Many small items, such as candle holders or lamps, are just enough to bring some industrial style to your space. Just keep it simple. When it comes to smaller items, use less but think big. Use large scale accessories to keep the look clean and uncluttered.

Work your leather. Industrial pieces work really well with leather. The layering of textures in a space make it more interesting. Replace your coffee table with a statement piece that features heavily distressed wood and cool accents like wheels or large bolts.

Try a new TV console. The television is often the focal point of the family room so it should definitely be housed by a nice piece of furniture. Take this as your opportunity to incorporate an industrial piece. Whether it’s a complete wall unit or a simple console it will anchor the wall with style.

Switch out your bed. Your bedroom pieces don’t all have to be the same. Replace your bed with something that incorporates the features of an industrial style piece. As long as it mixes metal and wood it should work. Just be sure the wood tones blend with the other pieces you’re using in order to have a cohesive look.

Start small. Test the look in your home with an accent table. Something small and round should fit just about anywhere. Place it near a sofa as an extra spot to place a drink, next to a bed where you can’t fit a nightstand, or even next to the tub in a bathroom. Accent pieces are great for adding personality and functionality to a space.

 

There are so many ways to add industrial style to your space. You can carry the look throughout your entire home or you can simply add small touches in a few spaces. Visit our showroom and talk to one of our designers for more ideas on how you can get this look.
