    Comments Off on Spring and Summer 2021 Interior Design Trends

    This year is flying by! We are already in the second quarter of 2021 and Summer will be here before we know it. Are you ready to get into the Spring and Summer design trends? Time to switch up those fabrics and accent pillows. 

    Earth Tones

    As Dulux Colour Of The Year 2021, “Brave Ground” is a calming and tranquil earthy shade that is warm and natural. Perfect for any room in the house that you want to feel is your sanctuary, preferably the bedroom. Warm, and natural tones such as sage green are also being seen in kitchens this year.

    Natural Fibers

    It’s time to open those windows and let a light and airy breeze flow in that will match your fabrics. Think sheer drapes and cotton throws. Thin material for casual throws draped over your couch or bed. Sheer silk curtains will bring a brightness into the room and can actually be hung through every season. 

    Prints and Patterns

    Switch it up with fun pops of color ranging from reds, blues, and oranges. This can come from throw pillows, and area rugs. Light colored walls and hard flooring make a great blank canvas for dressing up any room with new splashes of colors. 

    And as always. Main Floor Covering is here to freshen up any living space with new flooring, hardwood, carpet or luxury vinyl. Start your project today!

    Giving off a warming presence, this color will brighten up any space. Try adding this color with a throw blanket or pillows in your sitting room. 

    Cerulean, Pantone 15-4020 

    Calming and crisp. This Pantone hue gives off a sunny, Spring sky vibe that is made for a bedroom to give off a peaceful vibe.

    Our Favorite Time of the Year! 

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or so that’s what they say. However, it is OUR favorite time of the year for decorating the home. With that comes along wreaths, garland, and of course the beloved Christmas tree!

    Check out these holiday decorating tips for your home.

    1. Colorful Centerpieces

    One quick and easy way to dress up your space for this holiday season is to start with the kitchen and dining room tables. Start with a silver platter and add bulbs, evergreen and a few tealight candles in small jars. This will give an elegant look while also putting your space into the festive spirit

    2. Bright and Merry in the Kitchen

    Bring the décor from the dining room into the kitchen. Dress up your kitchen walls with a red berry wreath, add copper mugs to your hanging display and place candy canes to clear bowls to display the holiday cheer!

    3. The Big Finale….

    Now, not any Christmas is made without the classic Christmas tree. One of the most joyous experiences as a family is piling into the car and driving down to the local tree farm and grabbing the perfect blue spruce to dawn in your family home space. 

    Decorating your holiday tree with homemade ornaments, ribbons, and popcorn string can make any ole tree look festive. 

    Do you prefer white or colored lights on your tree? We prefer white, with adding green and red colored ornaments to the tree for a colorful addition!

    While decorating your home for the holidays, also think about dressing up your spaces with new flooring from Main Floor Covering! Adding hardwood floor to your living space can add texture, and is easy to keep clean, especially while picking up those Christmas tree branches!

  4. Décor Tips to FALL For!

    Comments Off on Décor Tips to FALL For!

    Autumn is in full swing and we are excited here at Main Floor Coverings. This season brings fun holidays such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. Here are a few tips to celebrate Fall and showcase your home in a sophisticated manor. 

    Front Door Foliage 

    Let’s start on the outside and work our way in starting with the front door and porch. Your home can set the tone for Autumn décor on the front porch with pumpkins from your local pumpkin patch and cider mill. Lining haystacks and mums in the doorway with pumpkins stacked on top will add a rustic country feel! 

    Add Touches of Color

    When we think colors of Fall, we think orange, red, and metallics. Try adding touches of deep purple and rich pinks to brighten up your scheme and mix it up. Adding these deep and rich color tones on the dining table or in the kitchen will certainly put you in an Autumn state of mind!

    Dress up the Dinner Table

    Hosting a dinner party this season? Try metallic and bronze chargers, gold rimmed glassware and place cards with gold lettering. Sprinkling little pumpkins and candles throughout the table and pouring apple cider in gold rimmed wine glasses will certainly set the Fall tone. 

    Bountiful Bouquets for Fall

    Instead of flowers, create a wheat bouquet in a pitcher vase for your dining table or kitchen counter. This type of arrangement will last all year round and can be tied in with a wreath on your front door!

    As the seasons change, so should your home décor. Get in the spirit with changing up your front door wreath, swapping out pillows and even lighting a pumpkin spice candle! 

    And as always, you can freshen up your home with new flooring from Main Floor Coverings. Contact us today to start your project!

    5 Summer Decor Tips – Inside and Out!

    Summer is upon us and it has been a hot one. If you have been hosting parties this season than it is a good time to spruce up your décor inside and out!

    Whether you are hosting a graduation party, bridal shower or family reunion, the summer décor switch up can allow some bright colors into your home and patio.

    Let’s take a look at these 5 decorating tips to bring summer into your home.

    1.    Outdoor Patio Entertaining

    Summer entertaining means fun patio furniture. Put some vibrant throw pillows on those wicker chairs and sofas. Orange, yellow and pink accent pillows and outdoor rugs will add some brightness to your space. Add a rug to make the patio set complete. If orange, yellow, and pink are too bright for your color scheme, work with the palette that you already have in your home.

    Add some lights to your patio ambiance, and we aren’t talking Christmas lights. A classic white bulb or themed tiki lights will add to an enchanted space.

    2.    Summer Scents

    Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh cut grass, sliced watermelon or the BBQ grill firing up?! Adding scented candles and diffusers to your home will put you in a summer frame of mind. Mango, pineapple, and guava are great summer scents! Which is your favorite?

    3.    Seasonal Bedroom Décor

    Putting away that heavy winter comforter and switching to a lighter, brighter duvet can makeover your bedroom in an instance. Embracing summer prints, colors, and themes will give your room a beach front feel.

    4.    Florals and Plants

    One of my favorite parts of the warmer weather are all the beautiful seasonal flowers that come with the Solstice. Who doesn’t love to go to the nearest green house and grab a few baskets and hey event some fresh food plants for a vegetable garden?!

    Hanging some bright colored baskets outside your home will add a beautiful and elegant touch.

    A statistic shows having fresh cut flowers inside your home will make you happier. The site and smell have an effect on your mood. What are you waiting for?! Go grab some flowers!

    5.    Create a Summer Themed Bar

    With entertaining comes shaking up some cocktails! We love sipping on a mojito or margarita in the sunshine! Adding tropical liquors such as a coconut rum, or melon liqueur will put you and your guests in a summer state of mind.

    That will do it for our 5 summer décor tips to brighten up your home. We want to see your seasonal décor in action! Send us a comment or a photo of your home on our Facebook Page!
