High Point Recap

We just arrived home from High Point Market. We had a great time seeing our vendors and reps. as well as the new trends in design. We learned that purple and orange are definitely the “colors of the moment.”

Lots of products are going to be trickling in over the next few months. Be on the look out for new bedding, swivel chairs, sofas, lighting, accessories, and case goods in the store and online! Check out a few of our favorite finds and displays from market below.

Tips for your first place:

There is something really special about your first home. Whether it is an apartment, condo, or townhouse, young adults usually do not have loads of money to spend on furniture and accessories. However, this is one of the most exciting parts of being out on your own  (officially!). After watching my daughter decorate her own place, I have put together a list of what I think are investment pieces every young adult should buy for their first place.

1. Rug: A good rug will really make an impact in a standard apartment or townhouse. No matter what age, whether you have young children, or are single, we love Dash and Albert’s indoor/outdoor rug collection. They are practical, soft, and come in great color and patterns. Putting something attractive on the floor , even on top of carpet, makes the space less cookie cutter and more custom.

2. Bedding: Your bedroom is your sanctuary so it should be the most COMFORTABLE place in your home. Invest in soft, quality sheets and layer your bed with a quilt, duvet, and lots of pillows. You’ll feel like a princess every time you get ready for bed.

3. Pillows: Pillows will also be the most inexpensive way to bring color into your home. Plus, they are the easiest to change when you are ready for something new.  Start with a good quality filler – we prefer down/feather if allergies are not an issue.  Many pillow covers come with zippers or buttons for an easy change from season to season or room to room.

4. Drapes: Draperies instantly make a house feel like a home; warm and welcoming.  Without drapes a house can feel cold and bare. Although drapes can be very expensive, our ready-made drapery line makes it affordable for almost any budget. (*Call to inquire about our ready-made drapes).  This apartment shows how draperies soften a room without blowing the budget.

5. Sofa: Although this is not the most budget-friendly, it is the one piece that you will keep for 10+ years. You will not regret investing in a quality piece of upholstery. For the longest lasting look, stay neutral and add your colors with accessories.

6.  Leave room to edit and refine:  Part of the fun of having your own place is looking for items that make it unique and special.  So don’t try to have it completely furnished when you move in – leave room for that great looking throw or framed piece of artwork you find while enjoying your well earned weekend.

Summer Decorating

It was such a long and rainy winter down south that I really want my house to reflect that summer has finally arrived! How can I accomplish decorating for the summer without having to change my current sofa and chairs. I need to decorate on a budget. Any suggestions?

-Leslie M. Atlanta, Ga.

It was a long and wet winter wasn’t it? You aren’t the only one who wants to invite summer in and ask it to stay around awhile! We get this question a lot in our store.

A great way to immediately change the look of a room is by updating your pillows and if possible a throw rug. By freshening up the look of the pillows and the rug you can brighten and change the ambiance of a room to reflect the change in seasons. Look at our website, lauraramseyinteriors.com for fun rugs. We carry Dash and Albert and they are on the leading edge for bright and colorful floor coverings that don’t break the budget.

We have become big fans of Pinterest and love some of the easy decorating ideas we find on there. Recently we saw someone take an old birdcage and spray paint it white. Inside the birdcage they added battery operated LED candles of varying sizes and heights set on a timer. The result was a light and bright summer time decoration on any budget. Please feel free to follow us on Pinterest at Laura Ramsey Interiors. Enjoy your summer!

Sincerely,
Laura Ramsey
