Accessories & Decorating Make a Difference

May 10, 2018 l Posted in: Uncategorized

Did you know Rocky Top is now offering accessories? I have come to realize what a difference accessories can make in the look and feel of a room. In preparing for a catalog photoshoot to get quality pictures of our Rocky Top rustic log furniture, we secured the assistance of a professional designer. While behind the scenes watching the staging for each room of furniture, I was amazed at how the perfect accessory in the right spot could enhance the beauty of the furniture and the room. Without the accessories, it was just four walls and the furniture, a cold uninviting atmosphere. Adding small touches and different textures throughout the room brought warmth and beauty. The rooms came to life and we were thrilled with the pictures. Each of the rooms looked homey and inviting. Here’s an example of one of the rooms we staged. Even Scooter thought the room was beautiful and the bed the perfect place for an afternoon nap. I promise, we did not put him there. He came on his own and can you blame him?

At the end of a busy day, you might find yourself coming home stressed, tired, or grumpy. Excess stress can affect your health both physically and mentally. Did you know the way you decorate can make a difference in how you feel? Creating a home or place that you love, a place to just rest and relax, evokes peace, positive thinking, and well-being.

When you walk in your front door, what is the first thing you see? Is it bright and inviting, or are you greeted by a mess of shoes, coats, and whatever else gets tossed aside when you first come in? Being greeted by chaos and a mess adds to stress. Here are a few tips on improving your home:

Declutter – take time to pick things up and put them away. Have a designated area to hang coats, throw shoes in a basket, or put car keys in a special container. A rustic log boot bench near the entryway is not only beautiful but the perfect place to sit and take off your shoes. Add colorful throw pillows to spruce things up. Simplicity equals calmness and order, plus it’s liberating.

Color – choosing three or four colors you love and using them throughout your home will unify all the rooms. Use softer lighter hues for those areas that don’t get as much natural light. Earth tones tend to connect you to nature. It’s important to choose something you love and are happy with as colors can influence your moods.

Lighting – natural lighting is soothing and peaceful whereas poor lighting and dark spaces can actually trigger depression. If there are areas in your home that need more light, add a small table and a beautiful lamp.

Furniture – you want to choose furniture that is both the style you love and that is functional for your needs.
