With fall trend forecasts spreading like wildfire, we can’t help but ponder the history behind them. Words like “rustic” and “utilitarian” are commonplace influences on the list — but why?
The utilitarian lifestyle emphasizes the pursuit of function and happiness. It makes sense that surrounding ourselves with purpose-filled objects inspire us to be more industrious. As much as we love baubles and bookends, nothing beats a beautifully crafted product that reminds us of our hard-working roots.
We’re almost three months away from Labor Day, which means it’s time to pull out your favorite white linen pants and milk glass — gotta enjoy it while you can! We’re a little partial to white because it is one of the finishes in our beautiful Porcelain RLM collection. Our collection of white accents isn’t just limited to lighting. Here’s a sampling of some of our finest white home decor accessories!
1. Tired of hum-drum ceiling fans? Our Flute Ceiling Fan shows a modern twist on fluted Roman columns without sacrificing function. Its damp weather rating makes it perfect for interiors as well as cooling down covered porches!
2. Use this shabby chic vintage Medicine Cabinet to hide away unwanted counter clutter or mount it atop your contemporary office furniture for a stylish office supply cabinet.
3. Porcelain enamel cups are perfect for sharing special snacks and beverages with the ones you love. Who could turn down a refreshing cold glass of chocolate milk after dinner?
4. Be kind to the earth and your energy bill with LED light fixtures! Our Avalon Porcelain Stem Mount LED Light is one trendy light fixture with its sleek warehouse shade and tiered canopy.
5. Opal glass schoolhouse sconces like The Mascot wall light bring all of the charm and sophistication of our classic schoolhouse light fixtures with a compact and practical wall mount. These would look lovely paired beside a tufted headboard, don’t you think?
6. Inspired by old train-station clocks, the Lille Tin Wall Clock is a welcomed addition to our Vintage Time Keeping collection. This antique replica features slightly distressed white painted tin while bold black Roman numerals keep time with style.

Charles Baxter wittily noted, “Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream.” We couldn’t agree more! There’s little more refreshing and comforting than a chilly bowl of ice cream on a warm spring afternoon. With the summer heat wave on the cusp (well, at least for us Floridians!) the very thought of ice cream makes our mouths water. So, why not decorate with fresh home decor that remind us of one of our favorite desserts?Read More
The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience. Confession time: How many candles do you surround your tub with hoping their warm glow will distract you from your chunky, dated bathroom accents and the fact that your tub might be a little too small for full reclining? Are you washing between your toes with dawn soap? What is your bathroom decor saying about you?
If you want your bathroom to say, “I love stylish, hand-picked home decor accents and the occasional evening of pampering” — this bathroom is for you! It’s easy to get cozy when you have the essentials like lavish porcelain tubs, bubbly handmade soaps, and rustic mood lighting! Here are our picks for a Shabby Chic Spa Bathroom.
Remember our trip to Tybee Island? We fell in love with the nautical accents and whimsical cottage styles. The beautiful bathroom in Mermaid Manor reminds us how calming a crisp, white palette can be. Our Atomic Topless Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce adds a touch of pastel and the frosted glass emits soft and soothing light. Vintage accents make this space memorable.
Ignore the time but keep the clock with this Lille Tin vintage timepiece. A Vintage Industrial Mirror makes a portable helper for your makeup routine and storage is a breeze with the Nantucket Wall Mounted Toiletry Shelf. Add a touch of nature with this Natural White Birch Forest Wall Art.
Trade in your harsh detergent for the moisturizing Betty’s Luxury Bar Soap!

The old saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home was surely coined in Jana’s house. Our Featured Customer built her home on a cattle ranch and hay farm in Eastern Oregon 22 years ago. At the time, she had three children and her kitchen seemed huge.
“Then our family grew to seven children, four of which are married now, and we will soon have eight grandchildren,” Jana says. “We outgrew the kitchen years ago, but it took us awhile to decide to remodel.” The family spends many hours every day in the kitchen. Winters are long in Oregon and there is a cozy fireplace at one end of the room. And summers are busy with haying seven days a week.Read More
Our love of mid-century style runs long and deep — from streamline moderne to atomic age industrial. Geometrical, aeronautical angles and emphasis on clean, simple lines take center stage in this trend and are perfect for office and organizational spaces. In our mid-century inspired office, we are taking our favorite elements of this interior design style and making them relevant for today’s home.
Every office and craft room needs a great work space. This Retro White and Gray Desk has a slim style that would look great paired with a cozy, tufted chair. It’s important to remember these contrasting accents that infuse current products — after all, you aren’t working in a time capsule! A Storm Grey Chevron Cushion makes a bold and artistic accent.
Put your space to work by composing some thoughtfully worded letters on memorable, hand-crafted Map Stationary. Retro lighting and clocks will remind you of iconic designs and designers like the Mouille Style Eye Wall Sconce and Bullit Mantel Alarm Clock.
We’ve expanded our line of Modern Pendants! Influenced by tribal beat lights, our Diwali Modern Pendant has sculptural impact that takes your pendant lighting from “blah” to “wow.” The Madrid Modern Pendant has a classic deep bowl light shape, but its compact size makes it perfect for contemporary rooms with constricted space. Even small spaces deserve swag lighting!
