Boys Bedroom Sets



Boy’s Bedroom:
Is your little tyke growing up to be quite the young man? Every parent wants to offer their little boy a space that is a reflection of their personality and interests. At this point, your son has outgrown his toddler-sized furniture and is ready to embrace a more mature look in his bedroom. Planes, trains, trucks and toys, there’s nothing quite like little boys! That being said, transform your son’s room with that boyhood spirit he has always wanted! The idea is to try to combine his interests with practicality and quality, so that his furniture can last… until he reaches his tween years of course!

Bed:
If you’re looking to change his bed, then you do not have one of those transformable cribs that can go from a crib to a daybed, and even a double bed! If your son had a toddler bed, then he likely outgrew it a while ago, and so you need something a little more mature-looking to mesh well with the new bedroom theme. Among the favorites for little boys are bunk bedsloft beds and trundle beds which are awesome for sleepovers. They are fun, functional and provide great storage!






Dresser:
Next, you need a dresser. Once you’ve chosen the bed, you can take a look at the matching dresser. However, if bedroom space is an issue, then a tall dresser is the better choice. You can still have loads of storage, but in a vertical manner.



Desk:
At this point, the little guy is not likely to get any homework assignments, but you can always opt for a desk as a craft station. That way you can tame the mess and keep it local! Eventually, he will get homework anyway!






Nightstand:
Last, but not least, the nightstand is a must for his bedside. It’s less likely to be a piece that is emphasized in a nursery set, but now you can get the matching nightstand for his new set. Aside from being handy for extra storage, he can use it to display home décor such as a table lamp, frames and an alarm clock.

The September Equinox



The Autumnal Equinox: A Great Time For Lighting Your Home

As you know, the autumnal equinox is an astronomical event that occurs once yearly in which the Earth orbits around the sun. At that moment, the sun crosses the celestial equator, in order to enter the sky’s northern hemisphere. It is said that after this event, days and nights are almost the same length. However, this also means that days are shorter than in periods of solstice, which in turn requires more lighting. Therefore, this is the perfect timing to ensure that your home is well-lit in the absence of daylight. Let’s take a closer look at some stylish and efficient light fixtures for your home:

1)      Floor lamps:
The floor standing lamp is a traditional fixture that comes in different shapes and designs. It is a great way to add style & ambiance to a room, since they do not cover as much ground. This fixture is perfect for a living room, as it can serve well for reading or lighting the room while enjoying your favorite tv shows.



2)      Pendant light:
A pendant light fixture is one that hangs from the ceiling by means of a cord, chain or rod. It usually includes one to several lightbulbs that are not combined into one single unit. The beauty of this fixture-type is that you can find many styles, colors, and even textures! From vintage-inspired glass, to industrial metal and a casual organic weave, a pendant light fixture will bring a unique accent to your room.




3)      Table lamps:
The table lamp is yet another classic. This lamp will ensure that any table in your home has perfect lighting. It is the ultimate measure to fine-tune your atmosphere in a room, whether you need extra lighting or want to dim the room. They come in a number of shapes, sizes and colors. From bold to muted, you will not have any difficulty finding your desired look.



Choosing a light fixture has become less mundane, as today’s wide selection will not only help you achieve a well-lit room, but also give you an abundance of style options.

Traditional Home Decor

Traditional Home Design:

Traditional furniture & home décor has thrived for so long and with reason! Although the traditional style is stale and outdated, a look that reflects the past preserves a sense of familiarity and comfort. Traditional deemed rooms emphasize formal arrangements which encourage conversation, with curvy furniture that avoids sharp angles and neutral colors that do not make a large statement. Instead, beauty is found in the finishing touches, such as molding and trims. If a piece is not timeless, then it is not graceful enough to fit in this type of décor! Here is a traditional home décor video to help you get started.

Modern Interior Design


Modern Home Design

Contrary to popular belief, modern and contemporary are not interchangeable designs. A modern design is best known for its clean lines, open floor plans and minimalist décor. In fact, modern design has a historical inclination, as seen in mid-century modern and art deco styles. Instead, contemporary design encompasses various styles that are current.

Now that we nipped that in the bud, you may want to check out Benchcraft & Signature Design for an effortless modern look. Let your furniture design speak for itself by being the spotlight in your space.

Casual Interior Design


Casual Home Design

Casual Home décor is perhaps best defined by its lack of regimented rules and unpretentious style. Despite its relaxed feel, a casual space is carefully put together! It merely gives the appearance of not so contrived, when in fact, different pieces are specifically hand-picked to mix in the bunch. A casual room is not matchy-matchy, but rather an intelligent blend of various decorating styles. Among the styles that usually get placed in this category are cottage, country, French country and shabby chic.

Now that you’ve extracted some valuable insight, here is a video to blossom some decorating ideas:

Home Contemporary Design


Contemporary Home Design

A contemporary design emphasizes a bold and trendy look. It also highlights shapes, textures and beautiful natural materials such as jute. Unlike in modern or traditional spaces, one that is contemporary is not afraid of using color. Having said this, using color is a reflection of personal taste, contrary to a monochrome palette. In addition, this specific home design is constantly evolving to keep up with trends. Yes, classic is timeless, but so is mundane. Keeping one guessing will never be uneventful!


Signature Design evokes these dramatic design ideas quite well. This Ashley sub-brand is worthy of emulating a contemporary home décor. Browse our Signature Design products to view our wide variety of colors, shapes and textures. In fact, here is a video to inspire your desired look:
