We Have a Unique Selection of Decorative Serving Trays

Decorative serving trays are not only a beautiful addition to your home, they're also extremely useful. I always tell my clients that a design can be beautiful, but it doesn't work unless it is also functional. This week I've included a few of my favorite decorative trays. Just click on each photo for more information and a zoomable image.

Add a Serving Tray to an Ottoman

This stylish serving tray will add an elegant touch to your decor. This glamorous tray features acacia veneer over wood with iron trim and handles, and a mirrored bottom.

Serving trays work so well on ottomans. Adding a tray doubles the usefulness of an ottoman - you and your guests can now put your feet up and also set down a drink or a plate of food without worrying that it will tip over damaging the fabric on your ottoman.

They work just as well on a coffee table, allowing you to serve drinks and appetizers, then placing the tray on the coffee table for your guests to serve themselves.

Use Trays for Display or for Serving

Trays are also a wonderful addition to your home to use to display candles, collections of favorite treasures, or for serving items like fruit or nuts. When not in use, they can still serve as unique and interesting accessories.

Ari Leaf Decorative Silver Tray - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This stunning silver tray will make a dramatic statement in your home. Use it to display fruit, nuts, or decorative items for the holidays.

Designer Tips for Filling Your Empty Walls With Beautiful Wall Decor Posted on 24 Oct 10:15 , 0 comments

Create a Gallery Wall

A wonderful trend in wall decor is the gallery wall. You're not alone if you just don't know how to fill the large expanses of wall in your home. So often I walk into someone's home and see a small piece of artwork on a large wall. The artwork looks lost in space. But by adding a gallery wall you can create a bold impression with collections by color or theme - or even an eclectic mix. You can group several smaller pieces together and create a beautiful wall of art.

Moonlight Ferns Framed Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor

The easiest way to create a gallery wall is with a series of artwork where all of the pieces are designed to work together as in the photo above. These subtle prints add a calming effect to the room while filling the wall with beautiful artwork. 

How to Display Your Artwork

We've recently added many new pieces of artwork to our boutique shopping site, many that come in sets ready for you to easily create a gallery wall in your home.

Metric Links Geometric Framed Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Create a cheerful gallery wall with these beautiful abstract framed prints. The configuration as shown will cover an area over six feet square! Hang them over a console table, sofa, or buffet. You'll add a dynamic touch to your decor.

Massena Photo Frame Collage - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

A wonderful way to personalize your home is to add a gallery wall of photos of family, friends, and happy times. Have fun collecting photos to include in these handsome frames. This configuration will cover an area approximately three and a half feet by five feet. Hang it in your kitchen or hallway where you're sure to see it often. 

Where to Display Your Artwork

Bedroom Gallery Wall - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Keep in mind that every wall in your home is worthy of great artwork. If you have a large empty wall in your bedroom, consider adding a collection of framed prints or photographs. You'll love waking up to them everyday. (Image from Tobi Fairley Interior Design). 

Pinecone Framed Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

These charming pine cone prints will create a stunning gallery wall. They're perfect for a holiday feeling throughout the entire year. This arrangement will cover an area approximately eight feet by seven feet. Use them in a large entry or place them in two rows of six across down a long hallway. There are many different ways to configure these stylish prints.

Think creatively in deciding where to place artwork in your home. Consider placing some pieces above a sofa, console table, or buffet. Just be sure to keep them no more than six inches above a piece of furniture so that they are anchored to that piece and don't seem to be floating. Most importantly, be sure your artwork is hung at eye level.

Plan Now for a Gallery Wall Before the Holidays 

We all know how quickly this time of year passes. Before we turn around it will be Halloween, with Thanksgiving and Christmas not far behind. Set a goal to have at least one gallery wall on display in your home before the holidays. Measure your wall and select artwork that speaks to you. You'll love looking at your new gallery wall for many years to come.

Please take a look at all of our newest artwork and wall decor. We're adding more everyday, and there are lots of beautiful new pieces that are available in sets or that have companion pieces.

Special Savings for my Readers

Purchase any of our artwork or wall decor pieces and you'll receive an additional 15% savings on every single item purchased between now and November 1st. Just enter GALLERY WALL 15 in the coupon code area upon checkout.

Tips for Creating an Autumn Feeling In Your Home Posted on 17 Oct 11:26 , 0 comments

It's Time to Add a Warm & Cozy Feel to Your Home

The weather is finally starting to turn cooler and the kids are back in school. It's amazing how our mindsets change with the seasons. Autumn has always been my favorite season having grown up in New England. Even though I've lived in southern California for many years, I still love the crisp fall evenings and the change of colors as the leaves begin to change.

As we start to pull out our fall wardrobes and start thinking about wearing sweaters and scarves (yes, even in southern California!) it's also time to think about making a few changes in our homes that make them feel a little warmer and cozier.

Add the Glow of Candlelight to Your Home

At this time of year as darkness comes earlier, I love to light candles. There's nothing like the glow of candlelight to add drama to your home. Scents like vanilla, pumpkin, and clove smell wonderful at this time of year and will fill your home with a warm and spicy fragrance. 

I've included in this post some tips for bringing the warmth and beauty of autumn into your home. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and detailed information.

Large Aeneas Wall Sconce Candleholder - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This gorgeous candle sconce would be a beautiful addition to your home during this fall season. Add one in your kitchen or a pair on either side of a mirror or artwork in your entry or dining room.

We have a fantastic selection of candelholders, candle sconces, and candelabras. I hope you find a special one for your home.

Enjoy Entertaining with Some New Trays

It's fun to entertain at this time of year, and serving trays are so useful when you have a crowd. Use them for serving drinks, appetizers, or desserts. 

Gatha Bronze & Antiqued Gold Decorative Trays - Innovations Designer Home Decor

These unique trays will add an autumn feeling to your home with their beautiful gold interiors.

We have a lovely selection of serving and decorative trays from which to choose. I hope you find some that you like.

Add Fall Color with a New Floral Arrangement

I love adding flowers to my home. They brighten the decor and add beautiful touches of color. Sometimes it's nice to have an arrangement or two that doesn't need watering and will last indefinitely. Think about adding some fall color with one of our lifelike arrangements.

Lilies, Protea and Agave Lifelike Succulents - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love this unique arrangement with its beautiful shades of terra cotta, gold, and green. It will add a burst of color to liven up your space for the autumn season.

All of our floral arrangements and plants feature beautiful designs and are made from the finest materials. We have an extensive selection.

Highlight Your Family, Friends, and Travels

Adding photos of family, friends, and favorite travels is a great way to add a personal touch to your home. Think about adding some new frames to highlight your favorite photos. 

Ambrosia Copper Photo Frames, 3-Piece Set - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

These eye-catching frames feature oxidized copper sheeting. They'll beautifully add a touch of autumn color to display your favorite pictures.

We have other photo frames from which to choose. I hope you find some that you love.

Accessories in Autumn Shades Add Beauty to Your Home

Adding some decorative pieces to your decor will bring the beautiful colors of autumn into your home. Art glass, in particular, is a stunning way to add color and beauty.

Lily Small Art Glass Bowl - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This exquisite art glass bowl is one of my very favorites. Its graceful lines complement the rich colors of terra cotta, amber, and cream, all beautiful fall shades.

Our extensive selection of art glass offers many beautiful options for fall decorating.

Lots of Beautiful New Mirrors to Create the Illusion of a More Spacious Home

Foliage Round Silver Leaf Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Using mirrors is one of my favorite ways to lighten and brighten a home interior. Mirrors reflect light into a space to visually expand and enliven the decor.

Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and more information.

The stunning round mirror above features layered natural leaves covered in distressed silver leaf with light antiquing. I really love the beauty of round mirrors, and this one is exceptionally special.

Please take a look at our stunning collection of round mirrors to enhance your decor. 

Uniquely Shaped Mirrors are a Popular New Trend

You'll add a harmonious touch to your decor with this eye-catching mirror. The mango wood frame features beautifully carved leaves.

Maalik Aged Black Large Scale Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This striking large scale mirror features thick iron construction with a hand forged three-dimensional design finished in a rustic aged black with subtle silver highlights and a gray patina wash. You can place it over a low chest or bench in an entry or hang it by itself on a wall.

Bathrooms are a great place to use framed mirrors. A beautifully framed mirror will add personality and drama to your powder room. The powder room is often used by guests, and they will surely notice a mirror with a unique and stylish frame. Other bathrooms in your home will also benefit from the use of framed mirrors. The function of a mirror in a bathroom is to accurately show your reflection. Why not use that mirror to create a statement at the same time?

Makura Beveled Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This striking mirror features a generous 1 1/2" beveled center mirror accented by numerous beveled mirrors creating the mirror's frame. The inclusion of so many beveled mirrors will create a multitude of beautiful reflections.

Add a Coastal Touch to Your Home - Inspiration from the Oregon Coast Posted on 02 Oct 17:11 , 0 comments

Beautiful Coastal Accents Inspired by my Recent Trip to the Oregon Coast

Oregon Coast - Innovations Designer Home Decor

My husband and I just got back from a vacation in Oregon visiting Portland, the Mt. Hood area, and the beautiful Oregon coast, including Astoria, Cannon Beach, Depoe Bay, and Yachatz. The scenery was breathtaking. We were thrilled to have exceptional weather - clear blue skies and warm days. It was quite a change from our southern California home. While on the coast I loved seeing the beautiful coastal furniture and decor which inspired me when we got back to highlight some of my favorite coastal pieces available on our shopping site.

Please click on each photo for a zoomable image and a detailed description.

Driftwood Candleholders, 2-Piece Set - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love these faux weathered driftwood candleholders on crystal bases. We saw lots of driftwood on the Oregon coast, and these beautiful candleholders are reminiscent of that gorgeous landscape.

Please take a look at our wonderful selection of unique candleholders. Now is the time of year to light candles for a beautiful warm glow and the scents of autumn.

Driftwood Round Glass Top Cocktail Table - Innovations Designer Home Decor

If you're looking for a very unique coffee table with a coastal touch, look no further than this eye-catching driftwood table. The base consists of natural unfinished teak driftwood that is sculpted into a sturdy table with a clear round glass top.

We have a beautiful selection of occasional tables in all shapes, sizes, and designs. Please take a look. Unique coffee and accent tables are a great way to inject your personality into your decor.

Driftwood Round Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This distinctive framed mirror is inspired by the soft sandy hues of driftwood. The surface pattern of this unique mirror is achieved by building each piece out of individual precision-cut pieces of mango wood. The pieces are first lightened and then given a subtle creamy wash to achieve the look of driftwood.

Add a Comfortable Rustic Touch to Your Decor Posted on 12 Sep 16:23 , 0 comments

Rustic Decor Adds a Casual and Warm Feeling to Your Home 

Rustic design is definitely on trend for today's interiors. A rustic space can be rugged and earthy or have a modern edge. It can remind you of a country house, a barn, a mountain retreat, or an exotic or coastal vacation home. It can be mid-century modern with natural organic elements or very industrial with lots of wood, metal, and industrial lighting fixtures.

Rustic Living Room

In all cases rustic design emphasizes rugged, natural beauty. Think recycled and reclaimed woods, distressed finishes, wrought iron, handcrafted accessories, and a natural color palette - all of which bring a touch of the outdoors inside.

Our Newest Lamps Will Add Drama & Beauty to Your Decor Posted on 06 Sep 10:39 , 0 comments

Update Your Decor for Fall with Some Stylish New Lamps

We've just added some gorgeous new lamps to our online shopping boutique. If you're looking for a way to update your decor for the fall without spending too much, think about adding some fresh and unique lamps like this eye-catching lamp below.

Cristino Contemporary Crystal Cube Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home DecorLamps are often overlooked as unnecessary accessories when designing a room. Even if a room has overhead lighting, lamps add critical task lighting for reading or close work. Just as importantly, lamps add personality and drama. Well placed lamps will add a beautiful glow and ambience to your rooms in the evening. Think of them as the jewelry of your room. Try mixing different lamps in a room, rather than matching them. Use them to add texture, color, and variety. For balance, you should plan on at least two or three lamps in each room. 

Below are a few of my favorite brand new lamps. Just click on the photos to see all of their beautiful detail as well as descriptions and dimensions.

Accent Lamps Add a Stylish Touch to Any Room

Accent lamps are smaller lamps that add a touch of light in the most unexpected places. Use them on dressers, on an entry table, on a sofa table, or on an etagere. 

Sterculia Transitional Antiqued Golden Champagne Accent Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add a distinctive touch to your decor with this chic accent lamp. I love the tall linen shade and the unique base which is cast from a cluster of seed pods from the java olive tree.

Please take a look at all of our newest accent lamps.

Buffet lamps are the Perfect Addition to a Buffet or Entry Console

Buffet lamps are typically tall and narrow. They're available in many different styles and will add a touch of personality to your dining room buffet or entry table. Used in matching pairs they add a dramatic touch.

Breckyn Contemporary Antique Gold Buffet Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add an eye-catching touch to your decor with this gorgeous buffet lamp. This contemporary design features a woven sphere made of brass wire displayed on an iron column finished in a metallic antique gold.

Please take a look at all of our newest buffet lamps.

Unique New Table Lamps Add Personality to Your Decor

Table lamps are large enough to use on accent tables and nightstands. Besides adding personality and interest, they create ambiance by casting a warm glow. 

Sicero Polished Silver Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

You'll add a dramatic touch to your decor with this captivating table lamp. The double sided base is perforated with various size holes and finished in a metallic polished silver.

Please take a look at all of our newest table lamps.

Floor Lamps Make an Eye-catching Addition to a Room

Floor lamps make a great addition to a room. When you don't have room for an end table or you want lighting for a chair in a corner, a floor lamp is a great solution.
