Nautically inspired interior design takes the cake for this summer’s breakout home decor trend. Easy accents like charming Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixtures and marine lantern style lighting carry the spirit of adventure into seaside retreats across the nation. We love spaces that make us dream, and that is why we’re looking “up” for the next big interior design trend. It’s time to take our rooms to new heights with aviation inspired decor!Read More
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.Read More
If you’re like most people, your kitchen probably got a real workout in the last few weeks with holiday parties, family dinners, and enough baking to make Mrs. Claus proud. This kitchen looks like it would be the perfect place for whipping up some pre-New Year’s Eve goodies! Loads of vintage touches abound here with the classic subway tile, the retro containers behind the glass front cabinets, and the creamy green bowls that are just crying out for a matching jadite Ivanhoe™ Aero Shallow Bowl Pendant!
We also love the classic clock on the wall. Though we are immersed in the digital age, it’s refreshing to see an old-fashioned analog clock on the wall especially in the kitchen. Our line of Vintage Timekeeping has taken inspiration from a variety of antique clocks to offer you a choice of styles from vintage station clocks to retro school clocks. There are a range of colors to choose from including red, cream, black, and even some wooden time pieces.
The 1950s Electric Schoolhouse Clock, crafted by the Newgate Clocks company in Britain, boasts a clean modern dial and a fresh faced look that is reminiscent of the old schoolhouse design. Available in chrome, gloss black, or gloss brown, this clock will make a bold statement on any wall.
In our Vintage Clocks collection, a colorful array of timepieces is offered including the Ice Cream Factory Wood Wall Clock also manufactured by Newgate. A delight for any kitchen space, this clock draws its design from the metal original which is increasingly harder to find. This lovely wooden version, available in Antique Blue or Antique Red, makes a lively alternative.
And you can get any of these clocks shipped to you for free during our Holiday Sale!

There’s no novelty space quite like a walk-in closet. Something about entering a room with chicly organized clothing from ceiling to carpet gives us the feeling of luxury and affluence. Unfortunately, not every house is furnished with these novel nooks, but we can still achieve the look of vintage glamour in our dressing spaces with these decorative accessories.
Placing an ornate Chateau Dressing Chair beside your island allows you to utilize the counter top for makeup application and styling while feeling like Hollywood royalty. Try an Industrial Metal Round Standing Mirror for primping and give yourself lots of light with this Decorative Wire Mannequin Table Lamp. The Vintage Century Lighting Broadway Stage Spot Light is a great conversation piece that plays off of the “Old Hollywood” theme.
Other vintage inspired accents like the Lille Tin Wall Clock and sepia Flower Arrangement photograph keep with the monochromatic theme, while mint colored vintage suitcases and Barn Light Electric’s new Jadite Enamelware Cup add a soft palette reminiscent of the famous Tiffany blue. Soft lighting from the Raindrop Chandelier will give your space a romantic, angelic glow—perfect for the modern Doris Day!
