Interiors Inspiration with Renee: Pantone Color of the Year

Colorful Ideas, Design Inspiration, Designers, Fun Report, Pick of the Week, Tips and Tricks
Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral, an energetic, golden-hued coral. Renee Devlin, one of our Senior Design Consultants, loves the choice. “I love the energy it gives off. It brings passion, warmth, and a sense of coziness to your space.” The color is a happy juxtaposition against the cold, grey months of winter. “I love it in winter because it brings that burst of warmth in. But I don’t think of it as a seasonal color. It’s a very healthy, rejuvenating color that can be incorporated year-round.” Renee’s Design Process When it came to putting together the mood board, Renee wanted to stay a little outside of the box. “I think people see a vibrant color like this and…

Cheryl Harrington, from our Pembroke showroom, has a favorite this week. And it’s the aptly named Cheryl Sofa!

The perfect spot to cuddle up with your pet, your spouse, your whole family.” A cuddle chaise is also a great option for those who can’t fit a traditional chaise.

Community Connections: Pembroke Art Show

Community Connections: Pembroke Art Show

Colorful Ideas, Community and Boston, Events and Fundraisers, Fun Report, General, Pick of the Week
We make a constant effort to create connections within our community. Recently, we hosted an Art Show Brunch in our Pembroke location, inviting local artists to display their work. The art show was the brainchild of Lucia Ventura, our manager in Pembroke, who, as an artist herself, wanted to host a new kind of event in the store. I spoke to Lucia and the artists to hear their perspective on this outstanding event. How it came together The idea came about when Rita Berkowitz, an artist and old friend of Lucia’s, dropped by the store to buy furniture. Together, they came up with the idea of an art show, and the rest came together naturally. “It all fell right into place, and all of the artists that I spoke to…
