Havertys: Discover Something You If you're lucky enough to have a Havertys Furniture near you why not plan on attending one of their inspiration sessions soon? The theme for October 13 is "Seasonal Scapes" (designing for seasons), November 10 is "Winter Colors" (designing to implement winter colors), and December 1 is "Finishing Touches" (making that room complete).
Although I truly need all the help I can get, probably the MOST useful one for me would be "designing for seasons" since other than Christmas decorations I pretty much never switch anything around during the course of the year. I know this is something I need to make a priority, because we all know how changing out one little piece (like the hurricane vases on my mantle currently filled with seashells and sand) can make a huge difference in the feel of a room. I found the last time I replaced an important piece of furniture (my sofa) that it completely changed the way we used the room. The whole family could be comfortable in the same room at one time and we ended up spending more time together!
I wasn't sure I even had a "design style" until I started looking around at Havertys.com. I found several pieces I fell in love with! Here is what I envision my living room looking like:
The sofa looks ready for a fun family movie night, and the clever Panama lift top table fits perfectly into the sectional ands keeps the popcorn and sodas off the sofa!
But running a close second was the "man-cave" look. The guys in my family would adore coming home to this!
The gears caught my eye first. Yes, it's a small piece of the puzzle, but it has great impact. John would adore it!
