Creating A Neater Living Room

Creating A Neater Living Room

The focal point of your home, the living room is used for relaxing, watching television, playing with the kids and entertaining guests on a day to day basis. In a room where so much activity occurs, clutter is inevitable. But there are ways to keep messes to a minimum. Create a neat living room with advice from Sherwood Studios, Inc.

Before you can organize your living room, you must first establish what the goal is for the room. Do you entertain in your living room? Work in your living room, or simply enjoy relaxing there? Once you know what you want from the room, you can begin establishing the look and feel of the room.

Here are a few tips for creating a neater living room design:

Furniture with Storage

Tables with bi-level storage and ottomans with storage compartments are a couple of great ways to keep your living room organized. Keep extra blankets and remotes in the ottoman and magazines on the lower shelves of tables to reduce the buildup of everyday clutter. When the seasons change, you can store heavier blankets in Ziploc storage to make room for other items.

Make Space for the Items You Use Most

Whether you spend most of your time in the living room playing board games with the kids or knitting on the couch, find a place for your most-used items to keep them from cluttering the coffee table. Whether you designate an area on the bookshelf or place them inside a storage ottoman, this will make daily clean up easier and allow you to get to your supplies quickly.

Clean your coffee table

Over time, clutter may begin to accumulate on your coffee table, the kid’s homework, junk mail, and old coffee mugs can make you forget what a clear table looks like. Try to find time to clear off the table and find a space for these items. Use a small box to organize our mail and recycle all junk mail and other useless papers.

Shelving

Instead of stocking your shelves with books, CDs and DVDs, consider trimming down your stacks to make room for storage bins and décor. Keep out your favorite books and those you often re-read, tucking the rest away in storage bins. Cutting down the size of your CD and DVD collection is even easier. Purchase a media binder or two instead of lining all the cases on your shelves. This additional space is the perfect place for artwork, photos, and other home accessories. You may also look into converting CDs, DVDs, and VHS into digital media. If you have access to a computer, you can easily convert this media and save it on a file on your computer. There are also companies that can turn your old VHS tapes into media files. You can also do this yourself.

More vertical storage

Creating A Neater Living Room

Most people have a variety of items they have accumulated over time that have begun taking up space across their living room. A better way to store these items may be to hang them instead. Items that can be hung include plants, bikes, photos, lighting options, and more!

Creating an Inviting Home

Everyone wants a home that will impress their friends and family.

When it comes to decorating the home, most families focus their energy on rooms that see the most use (the living room, kitchen and dining room). But there is one easily forgotten space that can have the biggest impact on guests: The entryway.

The first area in your home that friends and family see when they arrive, your entryway should present a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Give guests a hint of your home’s style while also offering plenty of room (and light) for them to take off coats and shoes.

Here are just a few tips on how to imbue your entryway with hospitality and style:

Incorporate Storage

Regardless of if your children are age eight or 18, it is a given that they will drop their backpacks, coats, and shoes at the door when they walk inside. Instead of looking on in frustration as all their stuff piles up, we recommend incorporating storage into your entryway. Hooks to hang coats and backpacks, a dresser to shore glove, hats, and scarves, and a rack for shoes will make your space an organized and welcoming one.

Take a Seat

Give your guests a place to sit down and take of their shoes when they arrive by adding a set of chairs or a bench to your entryway. For smaller spaces, we recommend finding a bench with storage to perform double-duty in your space.

Provide Plenty of Lighting

The first area of your home that visitors step foot into, your entryway should be filled with warm lighting that welcomes them in from the outdoors. If possible, we recommend adding a couple of different lighting options for your space. With a table lamp, wall scones and a hanging lantern or chandelier, you will be able to illuminate your space perfectly regardless of what time of day or night it is.

Make it Your Own

As you are choosing furnishings and decorative pieces to fill your entryway, pay attention to how they match the rest of your home’s style. The first glimpse that guests get of your space, the entryway provides hints and clues to your interior design style.

With the right furnishings included, this space can be a beautiful transitionary area from the outdoors to the inside of your one-of-a-kind home.

Let it Flow

After you have created an inviting entryway you will need to expand that same inviting energy to the rest of your home. One of the most important rooms used to host guests in the living room. There are several ways to create a cozy living room. The best place to start is with seating. There are many different seating options to choose from but a staple in many living rooms are recliners. Choose a recliner you can truly relax in, complete with an adjustable ottoman to rest your feet.

We hope these simple tips will help create a more and inviting home that will impress your family and friends. Remember to check Sherwood Studios’ blog for helpful interior design tips.

Easy Storage Options for Your Living Room

With the new year underway, now is a great time to transform your home into a more functional space for your lifestyle. There are many different essential items we need in our home but sometimes things can become cluttered.

Regardless of the size of your home, extra storage space is always welcome – especially in the living room. The space where your family spends most of their time together, your living room is bound to become a catch-all for sweatshirts, magazines and more at one point or another.

If your living room has started to look cluttered, there are endless storage options to consider, including the simple and stylish ones listed below:

Fill Your Ottoman

Much more than just a place to put your feet up after a long day at work, your ottoman is the perfect spot to stuff your extra throw blankets and pillows.

It will take less than a minute to straighten up your living room with a good sized ottoman at your disposal. Just fold up the extra blanket draped across the couch, grab the newspaper lying on the coffee table and stash them inside.

Choose a TV Console with Closed Storage

Especially if you have an expansive collection of DVDs, Blu-ray discs and videogames, a TV console with closed storage is a must. Closed storage allows you to keep all of your electronics on hand (but out of sight) to give your space a sleek, clutter-free appearance. You can also choose to mount your tv. This will free up a lot of space on your tv console for other items.

Make Use of Built-in Shelving

Living rooms with built-in shelves offer an extra opportunity for storage; all you have to do is cut down on your book collection. We recommend emptying off the bottom two shelves of your storage unit and purchasing baskets that match your home’s aesthetic. Placed on the now-empty bottom shelves, these baskets serve as a storage spot for children’s toys and games, remotes, extra batteries, personal documents and more.

Add A Bar Cart

A bar cart is a great way to add entertainment to your living room without taking up too much space. The Elite Modern Churchill provides a stylish and convenient way to store drink items like glasses, bottles, and other essentials for your bar. The unique folding design is a great way to save space because it can be fully extended or closed and tucked neatly away in a corner.

Update Your Coffee Table

If you are struggling to keep the surface of your coffee table clutter-free, the simplest solution is picking out a new table that offers built-in storage of its own. Whether you replace your traditional coffee table with a beautiful antique trunk, pick out a table that has a lower-level shelf for storage or pull your ottoman in front of the couch, the options are endless nowadays.

For all your fine furniture needs and interior design assistance, Sherwood Studios is available. Located in West Bloomfield Michigan, we can help you to transform your home with simple storage solutions and high-quality furnishings that will accentuate your personal style.

Home Décor Trends for 2020

Entering a new decade is the perfect time to update your home. Whether you need a change or you’re settling into a new home, there is plenty of inspiration you can follow to stay up to date on this year’s trends. The year 2020 calls for warm neutrals, earthy prints, subtle pops of color, and vintage vibes. These trends are simple enough to incorporate into any room of the house, and they make a serious statement. Minimalization and sustainability are the goals throughout 2020, so try incorporating some of these popular home décor trends in your household.

Neutral Hues

Neutral colors are making a presence in 2020. Some of the popular neutral colors include off-white, tinted greys, earthy greens, and shades of beige. These colors will be commonly found in bedrooms and uniquely distributed throughout the kitchen and the home. Neutral hues are found in natural wood shelving, which continues to be a trend in 2020. These neutral colors will make your home your sanctuary. Providing a calming presence to any room.

Cozy Fabrics

It’s time to get cozy in 2020. Soft fabrics and undyed yarns will be another popular trend this year. Off-white printed throws and oversized chunky knit blankets will make you feel easeful. You’ll also find some vintage pieces throughout households, so don’t be surprised to see distressed furniture pieces such as an imperfect leather sofa used as a statement piece in these rooms.

Pops of Color

Although neutral hues are all the rage this year, there are complementary colors that are perfect for accenting any room for a more modern and traditional look. One way to incorporate these into the home is by using accent furniture pieces dispersed throughout the house. Another creative twist may be to add a pop of one of these colors to your kitchen cabinets.

Pantone recently announced the color of the year as Classic Blue. This hue is described as the color of the sky at dusk. There are many ways to incorporate this color into your home along with other neutral tones.

Botanical Prints

Floral prints are the perfect way to spice up your foyer, bathroom, or bedroom. The subtle, but bright, tropical colors pair flawlessly with any natural wood or naturally lit room. Greenery adds a sense of liveliness to any room. Not to mention, it also pairs well with a neutral color scheme.

Kitchen Art

The kitchen is transforming into a room not just to cook in, but a place that you want to spend extra time to relax in. Kitchen shelves are going to be on your must-have list in 2020. Shelving allows you to openly display elegant dishware, knick-knacks, art pieces, or patina accents. Decorating your shelves is a creative way to express yourself, and you can add pops of color throughout the shelves to tie in accent colors.

Strong Geometric Forms

If you’re looking to add some artwork to your room, try gravitating towards geometric forms in your place for a bold touch. Adding artwork is a great way to incorporate some color into a room and catch the eyes of those who enter. Many artists will combine contrast coloring to make a bold statement.

In 2020, you’ll also notice geometric furniture pieces becoming popular such as funky coffee tables or decorative chairs. High contrast will be commonly found in these pieces as well. These furniture pieces resemble artwork and can add character to any room.

There is no better time to redecorate your home than the start of a new decade. If you’re feeling inspired, contact Sherwood Studios, and we can help you stay up to date on all the 2020 décor trends.

Design Tips for A Kid Friendly Living Room

98318581 - children sister and brother playing drawing together on floor while young parents relaxing at home on sofa, little boy girl having fun, friendship between siblings, family leisure time in living room

We all want to boast a beautiful living room. After all, it should be the one room in your home where you can relax with your family, enjoy your favorite television show after a busy workday, and entertain guests. It shouldn’t be the one room in your home that lacks style, organization or upkeep. And just because you have children, doesn’t mean your living room – or the rest of your home for that matter – has to lack style. There are plenty of ways to make your living room look elegant and clean, while also making it kid-friendly and safe.

Here are some tips to help you maintain a clutter-free, organized and visually appealing living room, no matter how young your children may be.

Find the Right Paint

Fingerprints, markers, crayons and other imperfections can make your walls look dirty and unmaintained, which can take away from the overall beauty of your living space. Once the marks are on the wall, there’s no going back – unless you paint your walls with a washable paint sheen! Colors in eggshell, satin or semi-gloss are all great options for families with young children, as imperfections can be washed away easily with soap and water.

Don’t feel limited to traditional paint options either. Chalkboard, magnetic, and dry erase paints are all wonderful accent wall options that take the cake for being parent and living room approved. In fact, you’ll want your kids to draw as much as they want on the walls coated in one of these fun and family-oriented options!

Protect Your Furniture

Kids are always jumping around on the furniture, and if they aren’t doing that, they’re either eating or drinking on them. To ensure your furniture investments are protected and maintain their like-new appearance for a long time, take advantage of couch and chair covers. These slipcovers are easy to take on and off, and they’re even washable. Use them to cover your furniture during play dates, and then whisk them off with ease before your dinner party.

Another family-friendly furniture option is leather. Both durable and comfortable, leather furniture is less likely to reveal stains, spills and other imperfections than fabric is.

Choose the Right Flooring

When you have young children, spills, dirt, allergens, and crumbs can easily accumulate and make your floors look downright dirty. Make sure you install floors that are easy to maintain and clean up should your son spill his glass of orange juice everywhere. Durable, stain-resistant carpeting is also a wonderful way to cover your gorgeous hardwood floors until your kids are a bit older. Plush and warm, carpeting can also protect your kids from bumps and bruises should they fall.

Chose Stylish Storage Options

With children, you are bound to end up with a plethora of toys lying around the house. Instead of banishing toys to their room, you can incorporate stylish design pieces that can hide these toys. You can choose a coffee table that doubles as an

Energy-Saving Design Tips for Winter

As the weather begins to get chillier, and the sun sets earlier in the day, you may begin to spend more and more time at home. The bitter cold that winter brings tends to make people choose staying in, rather than heading out for dinner or drinks with friends. This is also a time of year when many people host gatherings like holiday parties and dinners.

Whether you’re bundled up on the sofa, preparing dinner for holiday celebrations, or curled up in bed with a good book- make your home as cozy and efficient as possible this season!

Light Up Your Home

If you will be hanging Christmas lights, consider using LED light bulbs. LED lights are a great way to decorate your home and save energy. You can also use lights that include a timer to be sure that the lights are only displayed when necessary to avoid using too much power. LED lights can also be used inside your home for a more energy-efficient lighting option. You can also incorporate motion-activated lights to ensure that the lights are only in use when necessary.

Area Rugs

As the weather gets colder, you may notice a draft in your home. Depending on what kind of flooring option you have, it can become particularly chilly. A great way to insulate your floors and keep the heat inside your home is to use area rugs. A thick wool area rug will help protect your feet from the cold floor. Area rugs are also a great option for seasonal décor because they can be easily rolled up and stored during the warmer seasons.

Cozy it Up

Textures are a great way to add dimension and a beautiful design element. You can use fluffy pillows, chunky knit blankets, and fuzzy throw rugs to add textures to an otherwise dull room.

Winter Curtains

Window dressings are a great way to insulate your home this winter. It is time to pack away the light, flowy curtains, and opt for a darker, more heavier set of curtains to help keep a draft from entering your home through the windows.

Move Furniture

Changing your living room’s furniture around is not only a way to change around the look and feel of your home but it can also help to save energy and keep your home warm. To save energy by moving your furniture, first, locate all heating vents in your home. If you have any couches, ottomans, or dressers blocking the air vents, move them so they do not obstruct the airflow from your vents. Some people like to hide their air vents for aesthetic reasons, but if possible, move your furniture around to help the airflow more freely throughout your home.

Simple Ways To Update Your Home

Many people love sprucing up their home, but it can get expensive to totally redesign every room, especially if you love to constantly change things around. There are some simple solutions to updating your home décor that won’t take up too much money or effort.

Here are some suggestions on simple home décor updates that can help improve your space:

Update Your Cabinets

Most kitchens consist of a lot of cabinets. If you’re unhappy with your cabinets, you’re likely unhappy with your kitchen. Consider painting your cabinets to give them a brand new look and change the appearance of your entire kitchen with one project. If you’re not looking to do a big project, consider just changing the hardware on the cabinets. Choose knobs that are colorful or unique for a small detail that all guests are guaranteed to notice.

Paint Your Living Room

A fresh paint job is the perfect way to update your home without breaking the bank. It can also transform the way a room looks completely. If you are satisfied with your current furnishings be sure to select a color that compliments your existing furniture and décor. Neutral tones like green, grey, off white, beige, and black are very popular tones for living rooms and other common areas. These colors are so popular because of their versatility. If you would like to demo a color before painting your living room or running out to buy a bunch of different paint samples, check out PPG’s Visualizer. Simply upload a photo of the room you would like to paint, and they will digitally apply the color to your wall!

Switch Up Your Furniture

There is a good chance that your furniture is the focal point in most rooms, even if you’re unaware of it. If you can trade out an old chair and replace it with a new statement chair, you can give the space a whole new look without painting the room or changing the flooring. You can also add statement pillows to older furniture pieces to give the furniture a new look. Don’t be afraid to purchase statement pillows that showcase your personality and preferences.

Add a Small Gallery

If you have a wall that feels plain, but you aren’t sure what to fill it with, consider putting up a bit of a “mismatched” gallery. You can easily fill the walls with pictures of your loved ones and cherished memories.  Purchase a number of frames that are corky, but somehow coincide with one another, and stagger them on the wall to fill the space. For instance, you could choose all wood frames, but they could all be a different type of wood.

Update Lighting Fixtures

Many people have overhead lights that they aren’t happy with, but they eventually become “out of sight, out of mind.” If you have a light fixture hanging above your head that you can’t stand to look up at, consider replacing it. Although you might be used to the fixture, it’s something that most people will notice upon walking in that don’t see it daily. Updating a simple light fixture, even if it is just a hand-me-down lamp that you’ve grown tired of, can help a room feel brand new.

Why You Should Trust an Experienced Interior Designer With Your New Home

Why You Should Trust an Experienced Interior Designer With Your New Home

Buying a new home is a big investment—probably one of the biggest ones you’ll make in life. Chances are, you’ve waited for the absolutely perfect listing to come along, crossed your fingers on an offer and celebrated with jubilation when it was accepted. In Southeast Michigan and beyond, homebuyers go through this life-changing process all the time.

Still, once you’ve celebrated the purchase of a new home, the journey has only just begun. You’ll spend so much of your life inside your home, so why would you get careless when it comes time to decide what it will look like inside? Even if you have an understanding of your personal style and what design items you like, it can be difficult to translate your wants into the actual items you want in your home. An interior designer can take your ideas along with their expert knowledge in the field to create the perfect place just for you.  

If you are thinking of hiring an interior designer, here are five reasons to trust an experienced professional to make the decisions that could last a lifetime:

A Personal Touch

You can read all the interior design magazines and blogs you want. Without a designer who truly knows you and your family, you’re likely to end up with a cookie-cutter home that feels like a model for everyone else. The great thing about a professionally well-designed interior is that it fits perfectly with your unique lifestyle while looking absolutely fabulous at the same time.

Furniture that Fits

Think about the last time you stepped foot in a furniture store. You probably remember seeing way too many couches, shelves, tables and chairs with absolutely no clue where to start. It’s one thing to have a nice piece of furniture catch your eye, but it takes another level of expertise to understand how to put it all together. With a great interior designer, you won’t feel the need for a furniture store return for a long time.

Why You Should Trust an Experienced Interior Designer With Your New Home

Lighting You Can Feel

We’ve all heard about how much the lighting in a room can affect the mood of those inside. There’s actually a diagnosed mood disorder—winter seasonal affective disorder—that’s treated with increased light exposure. Don’t worry about which lights to choose from in the never-ending aisle at the hardware store. An experienced interior designer can set the mood exactly the way you want it.

The Perfect Colors

Interior designers fancy color choices as somewhat of a science. The color wheel is our artist’s palette—we know which colors work and which ones don’t. We’ve seen plenty of new homebuyer’s stumble into absolutely horrendous color combinations that sounded great at the time. Don’t let yourself make that mistake.

Coordination is Key

Try designing the entire interior of your home by yourself and you’ll end up with a list of contacts longer than the paperwork to buy the home itself. Who has the time to keep track of everyone involved, not to mention making sure they work effectively together. Professional interior designers have years of experience working with all sorts of contractors to make sure things run smoothly from start to finish. They also have connections that the average person would know nothing about, which can help with pricing and getting the job done in a timely manner.

Sherwood Studios offers professional interior design services, that include fabric selections, custom furnishings, artwork accessories, and much more! If you’re looking for the best interior design studio in West Bloomfield, servicing clients across Southeast Michigan in areas such as Birmingham, Troy, and more, give Sherwood Studios a call right away!

Questions to Consider Before Hiring an Interior Designer

What to Ask Your Interior Designer

Whether you are moving into a new home or are looking to redefine the style of your current space, there are many advantages to working with an interior designer to do so. An interior designer can do so much more than tell you what paint colors work best together; they can work with you to develop a style that weaves harmoniously through each and every space in your home. Interior designers specialize in creating beautiful spaces cultivated with your personal style in mind. In order to understand what kind of décor will work.

Of course, there are a few things that your interior designer will need to know about your family and your home before they get started and thinking about these questions ahead of time will help to ensure your home is renovated and styled to perfection.

What Elements are a Must?

Are there any design elements or themes that you absolutely need included in your home re-design. Maybe it is modern artwork or Victorian style antiques. This can help establish a theme and create a design plan that flows from one room to the next.

What are Your Color Likes and Dislikes?

Before your interior designer gets to work choosing the new paint colors for your walls and picking out signature furniture pieces and accents to decorate your home, it is important to let them know what colors you like. Do you prefer grays and blues? Or do you like beiges and browns?

This differentiation will help your interior designer to hone in on your style and help them to choose the right pieces to fill your space.

Don’t forget to mention if there are any colors you absolutely wouldn’t want to see inside of your home. While we do think it’s best to keep an open mind when working with a professional, it is also good to let them know if there is anything you just couldn’t live with.

How Would You Describe Your Interior Design Style?

Another important thought to consider is how you would describe your style. What design trends appeal to you and which do you dislike?

While your interior designer will be able to get a feel for your style when they visit your home, it is always good to describe your style in your own words, as it will give them a better feel for your needs.

What to Ask Your Interior Designer

How Do You Like to Spend Your Time at Home?

Don’t forget to give your interior designer an insight into your life, letting them know a little bit about how you like to spend your time at home. Maybe you are an avid reader who will need extra lighting next to your bed and in the living room. Or you love to bake and will need extra storage space throughout your kitchen for supplies and kitchen gadgets.

Whatever you love, be sure to mention this to the interior designer you work with so that they are able to consider your unique needs while re-designing your home.

Now that you are ready to redefine your home’s style with the help of an interior designer, it’s time to call Sherwood Studios. With a showroom located in West Bloomfield, our interior design team can help you turn your dream home into a reality. Let us design a space you absolutely love!

Preparing Your Home For Fall

Fall has finally begun, which means we are heading towards the busy holiday season. This means family coming in from out of town, and more people entering your home. Get ahead of your nit-picky relatives by beautifully decorating your home for the season with these tips.

Here is how to create a welcoming and cozy environment your guests will love to visit:

Porch and Entry Hall

Make your front porch warm and inviting from the chill outdoors.  Add a decorative touch with pumpkins and other autumn-themed décor and set your lights on a timer, turning on as the sun sets each evening. This way, friends and family will feel welcomed no matter what time they arrive for the holiday festivities.

Also tidy up the entrance to your home, making room for the extra coats, boots and cold weather accessories that will accompany your visitors. Clear off coat hooks, set up a shelf for shoes and add a basket for your family to place their hats, gloves and scarves in. An organized entry will make your guests feel welcome from the moment they arrive and help to keep your home clutter-free throughout the busy holiday season ahead. Because Fall weather can be unpredictable, you may wat to use a vinyl rug cover to protect your rug and floor from rain and muddy shoes.

Bathrooms

Stock up on all the essentials before your loved ones come to stay for the holidays and give the guest bathroom a good scrub. Since this is a room that may not see much use, now is the perfect time to restock towels and add a new bar of soap to help make your guests feel at home while they visit this November and December.

Living Room

Create an intimate atmosphere in your living room this fall by placing a warm throw blanket over the arm of the couch and adding a bit of extra light. With the sun setting earlier each day, an extra lamp and some well-placed candles can add to the cozy ambience.

Bedrooms

To prepare for company this holiday season, freshen up guest bedrooms, swapping out the current bedding for fresh sheets and a comfy quilt for the cold weather. Place an extra blanket on the end of the bed as well, to ensure guests will be cozy throughout their stay.

Make your home come to life this holiday season with some help from Sherwood Studios.
