5 Style Ideas For A Sophisticated TV Room

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort to have a stylish and sophisticated TV room. We tend to think of the TV room as a family room or rec room, an area of the home that lacks cohesiveness and order. That doesn’t have to be so. By implementing a few of these style ideas and organization hacks you can create a space that’s as eye catching as it is comfortable.

Install an entertainment center to bring order to your technological madness.

There’s a lot more in a TV room that just a TV these days. If your home is like most homes, you have more gadgets than you know what to do with. Cable boxes, DVD players, game consoles, Wi-Fi routers… and Alexa. Even the best TV stand would get overwhelmed with the modern madness that is technology. Simplify your clutter by installing a custom entertainment center from Willow Lane Cabinetry. Featuring solid wood cabinetry and the perfect amount of shelves and spaces to accommodate all of your things, you’ll no longer have to apologize for the mess.

Turn your favorite reading material into stylish décor.

12-28-18 WLC2-Roosevelt Steel Gray

If your coffee table is stacked with magazines and books, it’s time to take things to the wall. With a few fashionable bookends, your favorite reading material can transform into stylish décor on your shelves. Balance books with other pieces like picture frames, pottery, plants, signs or word décor, and art. By blending the things you actually use with things that look pretty, you can create stylish shelves that also keep you organized.

Functional furniture can elevate the look of a room and make clean up a breeze.

Place a console table behind your couch or a buffet table along a wall to give the room more structure. Having a few empty drawers on hand also helps when you need to do a quick sweep of the room and there’s more than a few toys on the floor. Ottomans that double as storage are another functional furniture solution that works great in TV rooms.

Add additional seating to accommodate guests and make the room more “grown up.”

12-28-18 WLC3-Union Grey

It’s incredible what two accent chairs can do for a TV room. It suddenly becomes a place for adults and no longer just a casual spot for kids. Add some accent chairs to your TV room that complement the color scheme but are still comfortable to sit in. Remember, the goal is sophisticated not stuffy, so you never want to add something to the TV room that you don’t see yourself regularly using.

Wall art makes a statement. What do your walls say?

If your TV room has a lot of family photos, wall art could make the space feel a little more refined. Find some pieces that complement the finish of your solid wood cabinetry and help carry the theme of the room. If you like the look of family photos in the TV room, a custom gallery wall could have a similar affect in making the room look more elegant.

Tips for Creating a Country French Kitchen

If you’re looking to create a kitchen with a cozy, comfortable, welcoming feel and a rustic, old-world look, French country style is the perfect design. This style of décor fits well in both country homes and modern homes and can easily be created by incorporating a few key elements.

Key French Country Style Elements
Below are key elements for creating a French country kitchen that’s elegant and has distinctive character.

French country style is marked by soft, pale colors taken from a provincial landscape. Muted hues in earthy tones, such as mustard yellow, soft gold, warm reds, mossy green and pale ocean blues are common.

Dark accents like granite countertops, dark wooden floors with wide boards, colored appliances and wrought-iron detailing can provide the perfect contrast to your French country kitchen.

Natural materials are an important element in pieces used in French country decorating. Rough stained walls, hefty beamed ceilings and delicately carved wood details provide texture and offer a simple look.

Since cabinetry tends to take up the most visual space in a kitchen, using warm surfaces and subdued tones on the kitchen cabinets is a must for an authentic French country feel.

Architectural Features
Materials used in French country décor often have stunning architectural features. For example, crown molding framing the top of kitchen cabinets is a common component of French country kitchens, as they add a beautiful traditional element.

Another common architectural feature is old, charming flooring. To create this look, old wooden boards are often used, as well as rustic flooring made of stone, clay or brick.

Tall, narrow windows with shutters are another distinguishing characteristic of this design style.

Country French kitchen cabinets feature furniture-type details to add to the warmth and comfort of the room. This décor style features kitchen cabinets that are somewhat ornate, with the doors typically featuring raised or inset panels that are arched or square.

Country French kitchen cabinets are similar to a Victorian style; however, they have brighter colors. Skirted cabinetry, particularly under the sink, is also a traditional country style detail that adds an instant rustic look to the kitchen.

A kitchen island is also an important component to a French country kitchen, as it serves to help with food preparation and provides space to bring people together. If you have the space for an island in your kitchen and want to add visual interest, choose an island in a different color than the rest of the kitchen but keep it within the same warm, muted color palette.

Stainless steel appliances fit beautifully in any kitchen, including French country style ones, and enable you to create a truly unique space. You don’t have to worry about creating contrast that doesn’t work when you go with stainless steel, as this material complements a wide spectrum of designs and matches well with a variety of cabinet colors.

If you’re not a fan of stainless steel, white appliances also pair well with this décor style. And, since having a few antique touches is essential for an authentic French country kitchen, retro-inspired appliances are another great choice.

Buying Guide for Your New Dining Table

The dining room is a central and meaningful part of your home. It’s where you and your family gather every day to connect with one another over a shared meal. It’s also the place where you entertain close friends and extended family members, whether for holidays and other special occasions or just to enjoy company and good food.

With the dining table holding such significance, it’s important to choose one that fits your personal style and matches your home’s décor, while also helping to foster connection and create the mood you want others to experience when dining with you.

Follow the suggestions in our dining table buying guide below and you’ll choose a dining table that’s the perfect combination of functional and stylish.

Choosing the Right Shape

You’ll first want to choose the right dining table shape, not only based on how it looks, but also for the layout of your space. A table that matches the shape of your room will enhance balance and create harmony.

The most common dining table shapes include:

  • Rectangular – The most traditional dining table shape, rectangular tables fit well in long, narrow spaces. This is also a good shape to use when you have an open-plan space that you want to create separate functional areas in, such as a dining area and a family room.
  • Square – This shape is ideal for smaller rooms, especially square rooms, as it enhances an intimate setting.
  • Round – A cozy, intimate style, a round shape is an excellent choice for a smaller room where you need a good space-saving option. Since it doesn’t have any corners, a round dining table is also ideal for those with small children who can get hurt on the pointy corners on a square or rectangular table.
  • Oval – This shape is a more space-efficient alternative to a rectangular table.

In addition to space, also consider the primary use for your table when choosing a shape. A round or square dining table helps to create the desired ambience for candlelit meals or intimate gatherings. A long, rectangular table, on the other hand, is perfect for hosting large dinner parties or seating families of more than four people.

Also think about the most common ways you use your table outside of eating. Do you use it as an office and need room for your laptop and paperwork when checking emails, paying bills or performing other tasks? Do your children use the table to do their homework? Do you and your kids use the table as a craft area for art and other creative projects? Your answers to these questions will be important factors in determining the amount of space your table needs to have.

Choosing the Right Material

After deciding on the best table shape for your home and lifestyle, you’ll need to then choose the right material. You’ll want to select a material that blends well with your existing dining room décor and furniture pieces to create a harmonious setting and relaxed atmosphere.

Keep in mind that there’s no “right” or “wrong” choice and allow yourself the fun and freedom to experiment with materials. Having an open mind will enable you to create a space that displays your personality and style and brings your vision to life.

Some of the most common dining table material choices include:

  • Glass – A glass dining table is the epitome of modern and elegant. This material is best suited for small rooms or apartments where you want to give the space an open feel.
  • Wood – A timeless option, a wood dining table creates a warm and welcoming look and feel. This is a versatile material, as it beautifully complements a variety of décor styles and is available in numerous colors and finishes.
  • Stone – Stone tables, such as granite and marble, are luxurious, natural options that are perfect for modern style homes. Due to the heaviness of stone, it’s best suited for smaller tables.
  • Metal – Metal is a highly durable option and works well with an industrial or contemporary style room.

Before shopping for your new dining table, measure your space and keep the above guidelines in mind. You’ll find that when you take the time choose a table that meets your various practical, social and style needs, gathering at the table will be a truly rewarding experience.

How To Host A Fabulous Fondue Party

Whether as part of an appetizer spread, main course, or dessert, fondue can be a delicious addition to a dinner party. It also creates a fun atmosphere and encourages your guests to interact and socialize. For your next holiday party or New Year’s Eve celebration, choose fondue for a night of food, fun and festivities.

Here are some tips for hosting your first fondue party.

Set up a buffet style or traditional fondue serving area.

Fondue pot and fresh bread on table

If you have an open concept kitchen, you can use your kitchen island or extra countertop space to create a fabulous fondue station. Larger kitchen carts with bar cabinets, portable islands, or a buffet table will also work. This is the ideal set up if you want guests to be able to grab, dip, and go. Take this approach for cocktail parties where you’ll only serve appetizers, or for a dessert station.

For smaller guest lists, you can set your fondue pot on your dining room or coffee table for a more intimate setting.

Find the perfect pot for your fondue party.

Chocolate fondue with fresh berries on a grey wooden table

There are a variety of fondue sets and pots out there, so purchase the style that suits your needs. You’ll find larger models with ten or more pieces, as well as simple sets that mostly just consist of one average sized pot. The main factor in your decision will be how many fondue courses you plan to offer and how many guests will be in attendance.

Which set you select will also have to do with where you’ll be serving your fondue. There are electric styles that need to be plugged in as well as wireless varieties that use a tea light candle. This is why it’s best to designate your serving station before purchasing your equipment.

Put together your menu.

There are so many possibilities with fondue. For an appetizer, indulge guests with a decadent cheese dip. As the main course, sliced meat, shrimp, or vegetables can be cooked in seasoned water. And for dessert, a warm bowl of chocolate smells as good as it tastes.

Decide if fondue will be one course or three and then plan your menu from there.

Everyone loves cheese as a starter and this is definitely the most well known way to fondue. The traditional combination of Emmentaler and Gruyère cheese is a classic that everyone can enjoy. Serve with bread, soft pretzels, or raw vegetables. For a twist, make a beer and cheese mixture that creates a decadent and delicious appetizer.

For your main course, heat up some water, oil and seasonings that will complement your protein choice, or use a flavorful vegetable broth. Guests can cook their favorites exactly how they like it. Just be sure to include a guide with the recommended cooking time for each option on display.

When it’s time for dessert, chocolate is the way to go. You can do either milk or dark chocolate and pair with anything from pound cake to fresh fruit. For an upgrade to a childhood favorite, let guests dip marshmallows into the chocolate and sandwich their creation between two pieces of grahams cracker. This adult version of the S’more is sure to be a hit that your guests will remember.

3 Rules For Designing A Contemporary Rustic Kitchen

It’s wintertime, and the sweet smell of evergreen trees fills the air. So grab a hot cup of cider, sit by the crackling fireplace, and let’s talk about the rules for designing a rustic kitchen with all the contemporary comforts you crave.

  1. Start with a neutral palette.

Just because your kitchen theme is rustic doesn’t mean it needs to be dark. A neutral palette is right on trend, and creates a serene space for cooking and gathering. Contemporary rustic kitchens would look just at home with antique white cabinets as they would with the medium wood tones you traditionally picture in a rustic kitchen. Bathe your walls in creamy off-white, beige or gray paint, and add warmth with simple wood furniture, wood flooring (or wood-look tile), and granite countertops. A natural stone backsplash can help finish the contemporary rustic look.

  1. Incorporate both natural and industrial materials.

While a cabin in the mountains would have lots of wood and other elements taken straight from the great outdoors, a contemporary rustic kitchen should also have industrial touches. Pair hardwood floors and exposed beams with sleek stainless steel appliances and an apron front sink made from hammered copper. Add LED Edison bulbs to oil rubbed bronze light fixtures above your kitchen island, and distressed, rustic pulls to the aforementioned antique white cabinets.

  1. Pull off that lived-in look.

12-11-18 WLC2-Tuscan Almond Glaze

Even though you are designing a new kitchen, you should strive for the comfortable, lived-in look that is the hallmark of a rustic kitchen. Elements like

open shelving and glass front cabinet doors allow you to personalize your kitchen with pottery and other treasured collections you wish to display. The experts at Willow Lane Cabinetry can help you craft the perfect contemporary yet rustic kitchen through our free room design service, complete with a custom layout and 3D renderings that work within your budget.

Here are a few more elements and details you’ll find in a contemporary rustic kitchen:

  • Galvanized Metal Stools

  • Upholstery Tacks
  • Farmhouse Trestle Tables
  • Reclaimed Wood Paneling
  • Weathered Brick Accents
  • Exposed Wood Beams
  • Minimal Window Coverings
  • Natural Fiber Rugs
  • Natural Stone Backsplash
  • Burlap Table Linens

7 Home Trends Of the Past Making A Comeback In 2019

As the year is coming to a close, we’re feeling nostalgic for some of our favorite interior design trends of the past. Thankfully, these seven are back in style and right on point for 2019.

Shag Rugs

No longer a wall-to-wall relic of the 1970s, today’s shag is ideal for area rugs in the dining or TV room. Shag has a deep pile and is named for it’s uniquely shaggy appearance. Thanks to its rising popularity, shag area rugs can be found in a variety of colors and patterns to fit any décor.

Tulip Tables

You will get a sentimental feeling when you see Tulip Tables gracing magazine covers in the New Year. One of the most iconic designs of the Modernist movement of the mid 20th century, this kitchen classic features a flower-like pedestal base, with a thin, round or oval top. The slim profile makes Tulip Tables a nice choice for small kitchens with a contemporary or transitional aesthetic.

Wet Bars

12-7-18 WLC2-Legacy Teaberry Wet Bar

Once relegated to finished basements, the wet bar is fast becoming a stunning addition to an open concept kitchen designed for entertaining. These gorgeous bar cabinets should coordinate with your kitchen cabinetry, and feature a sink for rinsing out glasses and preparing mixed drinks for guests.


Shearling / Sherpa

Oh so cozy and perfect for the cold winter months, Shearling (along with it’s synthetic counterpart Sherpa) has been seeing a resurgence as of late. Whether you choose faux or the real deal, this soft material can be found in throw blankets and even upholstered furniture pieces.

Wicker / Rattan

Popular in the 1980s and 90s, wicker and rattan furniture is back on the radar and fresher than ever. Rather than the charming county or Victorian-revival set you once owned, wicker can be found in clean-lined, contemporary accent pieces, such as dining chairs or hall tables.


Mirrors have always been a staple of interior décor, but in 2019, expect to see mirrored furniture pop back on the scene, along with unique statement mirrors in retro styles and shapes, such as the sunburst or windowpane.

Gold / Copper

12-7-18 WLC3-Providence Slate Grey with Gold

Stainless steel has dominated the open concept kitchen for a long time, but in 2019, warmer metals will be stealing the show. From 1960’s-inspired gold-tone pendant lights and pulls, to copper kitchen sinks, mixing both warm and cool metals will be right on trend, and will give your kitchen an elegant new look for the New Year.

How to Choose the Right Finish for Your Appliances

Choosing the right finish for your appliances can be both fun and nerve-wracking… but mostly fun. It’s definitely the best part of the buying process! Matching appliances will not only help create a put-together look, but if you do it right, it turns into a conversation piece. The trick is ensuring they fit into the color scheme of your space. Let’s break down some of the most popular appliance finishes and where to use them in your home.

When to Use Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances are the envy of the appliance crowd and for good reason. Easy to match, stainless steel blends well with just about any color scheme. It has a high-end look and quality that really can’t be beat. However, when choosing stainless steel items, use caution if your home includes young children as this finish is extremely prone to showing smudges and fingerprints.

However, you can really use stainless steel anywhere – it’s such a versatile finish, lasts forever, is easy to clean (but will need to be cleaned often), is germ resistant with its non-porous durability, and pretty much matches any décor.

When to Use Slate Appliances

Still somewhat new in the world of appliances, slate is a highly-engineered, low-gloss, matte metallic paint finish; it holds magnets, resists fingerprints, doesn’t show dirt or grime and has a stunning and sophisticated appeal. It’s an excellent choice for high traffic areas.

The versatility of slate means you can use it beyond the kitchen. It is very durable and easy to clean and maintain. This tone-inspired finish looks elegant and fits well with any theme in your home.

When to Use Paneled Door Appliances

Sometimes referred to as “disguise appliances,” the appeal of paneled door appliances is just that – they seamlessly meld into the woodwork and integrate into your home. A trend in home design since the 1990s, paneled door appliances can be used throughout your home – not just the kitchen. They are a great alternative to stainless steel as they do not show fingerprints or smudges.

There’s a reason camouflaging appliances is still so on trend – homeowners want them to be extensions of the rooms they are in and therefore, refrigerators, dishwashers, TVs, wine cellars and more are blending into the woodwork. Finishes can even be designed as artwork – paneled door appliances really have no limits to where and how you can use them.

When to Use Black Appliances

Modern and sleek, black appliances are very popular in kitchens – especially urban kitchens. If you’re thinking about redesigning your kitchen with a contemporary, urban theme, you can’t go wrong with black appliances. The trick is making sure they don’t give your kitchen a darker appearance. Black appliances look phenomenal in white kitchens, black and white kitchens, red and white kitchens… you get the idea.

Use caution in choosing black appliances if your walls, floors, countertops or cupboards are dark – this could really be just too much and you won’t get the feel you were dreaming about when you chose black appliances.

When to Use White Appliances

Always in style, white appliances are consistently safe choices for most spaces. They are bright, crisp and clean, and just look fresh. Whether your home décor is modern, traditional, farmhouse, urban or another theme, white tends to blend well with most designs. If you’re on a budget – white is always a great option. White appliances are also very easy to clean.

Beyond the kitchen, white appliances include washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, stoves, ovens, ranges and more! So the reality is that you can really use white appliances anytime, anywhere.
