How to Embrace the Hue that's always on Trend: Blue


The color blue has been a popular color for quite some time now. A lot of people are incorporating it into their homes, clothing, and just their overall lifestyle. Luckily summer is here, and this is the best time to start adding some blue into your outdoor space keep your home trendy!

If you’re not sure if you’re going to like it, start off small. Add a little blue into your life with a blue accent pillow to put onto your couch, or blue potted flowers in whichever shade of blue you prefer. Feeling bold?  You could also add a blue area rug at a diagonal to not only elongate the space, but also help to make the room pop. Revamping a kitchen or dining area with a small pop of blue hue is also very easy and cost-effective. Our favorite additional is blue salt and pepper shakers; this is a fun and easy way to test out if blue is for you.

However, if you're ready to make a bold statement and are looking for a more robust and "in your face" way to bring on the blue, there is a lot of ways you can incorporate this style. Head on over to your local home improvement store and purchase a can of your favorite blue shade of outdoor paint (spray or bucket). Transform any old terracotta planter, decorative wagon, or even worn iron benches to a new, vibrant, and modern splash of decor. Looking for a less permanent option? Consider purchasing blue outdoor cushions for your furniture, or blue hanging lanterns. Blue is a summer color of choice that isn't going away any time soon, so might as well embrace it.



Our favorite blue addition is these vibrant crystals to adorn any gas-powered fire pit. The color glows even brighter at night, and adds a subtle pop of color where you least expect it. You can purchase your own glass crystals here.

Blue might not be for everyone, but there’s a bunch of ways to add it into your life. You can be as bold or subtle as you want. Please let us know how you added the marvelous blue into your outdoor living space.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
