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!Read More
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 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
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!

It’s no secret that the end of Daylight Savings Time is due up this weekend. Back in March, we moaned and groaned about losing an hour of sleep on the weekend after what was probably a grueling work week (aren’t they always?). This Sunday, you get the chance to gain that hour of sleep back. With the technology today, you don’t even need to worry about adjusting your main timepiece: the cell phone.Read More
