Brighten Your Decor With Lifelike Plants & Florals & Enjoy Special Savings Through Jan. 10th Posted on 02 Jan 16:31 , 0 comments

Brighten Your Home During the Winter Months

During the bleak winter months when trees are bare and color outdoors is sparse, think about adding some color inside your home to brighten your decor.

Adding plants and florals to your decor during the winter is one way to brighten your home and bring the feeling of outdoors inside. If you don't have a green thumb or don't want to be bothered watering and caring for plants, think about adding some plants and florals that require no watering or maintenance.

We've just added some beautiful new lifelike plants and florals to our boutique shopping site. These gorgeous designs will look fresh and lovely for many years. We use only premium quality materials to assure a natural looking product. There are styles to suit every mood - contemporary, traditional, transitional, coastal, or tropical.

Designer Tips to Visually Enlarge Your Home Posted on 10 Oct 11:46 , 0 comments

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. Well-placed mirrors will visually increase the size of your home, making it feel larger than it really is. This week I've included some of my favorite mirrors. 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

Framed mirrors in a variety of unique shapes and sizes are currently very popular. Use them in powder rooms, entries, dining rooms, or anywhere you'd like to add some style while reflecting light.

Succulent Contemporary Decorative Round Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

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

We have many captivating and distinctive mirrors in a variety of unique shapes. Please take a look...

Large Scale Mirrors Add Drama & Spaciousness

Large framed mirrors can double the visual size of a room. Or place them opposite a large patio door or window and they'll reflect the view, bring the outdoors inside and making your home feel much larger.

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. Just be sure to place it no more than 6 inches above a piece of furniture or at eye level if hung by itself.

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.

5 Tips for Creating a Flow Between Your Home and the World Beyond Posted on 05 Jul 11:26 , 0 comments

Bring the Outdoors Into Your Home

Bringing the outdoors in creates a flow between your home and the world beyond. It also enlarges your living space as your home becomes an extension of your yard or patio. One way to create this flow is to include some unique accessories that are inspired by nature. I've included some suggestions below. For more information and an zoomable view just click on each photo.

Living Room with Plants & Rustic Furniture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add Some Greenery & Flowers

Nothing softens a room and brings the outdoors inside like the addition of plants and greenery to your home. Living plants add energy to your home and also produce oxygen which is good for everyone living there. They not only add beauty, but they also soften corners and create a garden feeling. I love to see how my plants are growing, changing, and blooming. If you don't have a green thumb, or just don't want to be bothered with the maintenance of live plants, we have some fabulous preserved and silk plants and florals that will add a lovely touch and be maintenance free.

Preserved Boxwood Garden Urn - Innovations Designer Home Decor

We have a wonderful selection of preserved and silk plants and florals that will add a touch of the outdoors to your home. 

Display a Decorative Natural Bowl or Tray

Decorative trays and bowls are not only beautiful, but also functional. They're especially useful for outdoor entertaining during the warm summer months.

Parquet Larch Octagonal Serving Tray - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This unique decorative serving tray will not only make a statement in your home, but it will also add a touch of the outdoors to your decor. This beautiful tray is designed by Barbara Barry.

We have a wide selection of unique decorative trays and bowls. Please take a look...

Include Some Accent Furniture Pieces That are Inspired by Nature

A great way to connect your decor to the outdoors is to add a rustic accent furniture piece to your home. 

Herbert Rustic Reclaimed Wood Bench - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This rustic bench will add a casual touch to your home. This unique piece is handcrafted from solid recllaimed fir wood and finished with an antique white wash. Imagine the conversation piece that this bench will become when used in an entry or in a family room. It's a fun way to add a functional piece of furniture that connects you to the outdoors.

I hope you'll take a look at the many beautiful rustic accent furniture pieces that I've added to our shopping site.

Add Some Earthy Lighting

Every room needs some added light, so why not add a lamp or two that adds an earthy, organic feeling to your home?

Adding a mirror is a wonderful way to bring more light and a reflection of the outdoors into your home. It will make your home feel larger and brighter.

Busalla Ivory Round Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This casual round mirror would be a beautiful addition over a buffet or entry table. Its heavily distressed and antiqued ivory finish will bring a feeling of the outdoors into your home.

Five Ways to Create Artfully Accessorized Bookshelves Posted on 30 May 12:31 , 0 comments

1. Consider Scale in Selecting Items That are Attractive and Functional

Most homes include some type of bookshelves. Accessorizing these shelves can sometimes be a challenge. Here are some tips for creating a special display. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and more information.

It's important to consider the scale of your shelves and the type of items you'd like to include to make them attractive and functional. Think in terms of a variety of items that vary in size - be they small, tall, wide, or large. Books can be added in stacks, or if you have lots of books, in individual sections, sometimes broken up with decorative bookends.

Bring the Beach Home with a Coastal or Tropical Design Posted on 24 Apr 12:11 , 0 comments

Add a Touch of the Beach to Your Decor

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh sea air or wiggling your toes in the sand at the beach? Well, you don't need to live by the ocean to enjoy coastal or tropical design. Ornate and heavy furnishings have been replaced by a lighter style with a fresh touch, often with coastal and tropical influences. Fresh colors like aqua, teal, cerulean blue, yellow, red, and coral work well with these styles.

This week I've included some of my favorite new coastal and tropical pieces. I hope you'll take a look at our wonderful selection of accessories and accent furniture in these beautiful styles.

Brighten Your Home During the Winter Months

During the bleak winter months when trees are bare and color outdoors is sparse, think about adding some color inside your home to brighten your decor.

Adding plants and florals to your decor during the winter is one way to brighten your home and bring the feeling of outdoors inside. If you don't have a green thumb or don't want to be bothered watering and caring for plants, think about adding some plants and florals that require no watering or maintenance.

We've just added some beautiful new lifelike plants and florals to our boutique shopping site. These gorgeous designs will look fresh and lovely for many years. We use only premium quality materials to assure a natural looking product. There are styles to suit every mood - contemporary, traditional, transitional, coastal, or tropical.

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