The Perfect Rug For Summer

After a long winter, summer is the time to lighten up on the layers and freshen up your home! When it comes to home decor, that means storing away heavier wool and knotted rugs in order to make way for lighter, more breathable fabrics. As stated on My Domaine, lightweight rugs are “a great way to maintain an inviting atmosphere in your home during the summer months when warm temperatures make the thought of stepping on plush wool unbearable.”

That’s where Dhurrie comes in: the hand-woven rugs by Avocado Decor are 100% cotton and the perfect lightweight rug for summer; Yet they're versatile enough that they work in colder months too, if you don’t want to switch your rugs out when the temperature drops. Best of all, they’re machine washable, so they’re a breeze to clean in those busy summer months when your home is getting a lot of foot traffic.

Amanda’s House Of Elegance has tons of beautiful, warm-weather friendly Dhurrie rug options. Read on to see some of our favourites below…

Rugs To Add Warmth To Your Space Through The Cold Months

When its cold outside, sometimes the only thing getting you through the day is the knowledge that you can get nice and cozy once you get home. There are some very easy tactics that can be used in order to add warmth and design to your home. Adding a few rugs to your space is one of these tactics. Having a warm, soft surface under foot adds so much character and keeps the house warmer all at the same time. Here are some great rug options available at Amanda’s House of Elegance that will be perfect in your home for the fall and winter and then can easily transition to the warmer months.

The Perfect Neutrals

These neutral beauties will add warmth and comfort to your space without adding too much of a statement. Even though the patterns are bold, the neutral colour palette keeps these rugs an easy statement for any home. These are great for spaces already in a neutral palette, space with colourful palettes and also spaces with wall to wall carpeting to achieve a layered effect. If you are unsure what rug would suit your space, bring in photos to Amanda’s House of Elegance and we would be happy to help.

Add Some Colour

A colourful rug can be the perfect addition to the right space. Definitely a riskier move then a neutral choice, but the payoff can make it worth it! We love the colours in these options and think they could be a perfect purchase for your home. Sometimes a pop of colour is what is needed to really liven up a room.

Falling For Fall: Slowly Bringing Autumn Decor Into Your Home

With fall colours and temperature fast approaching, for better or worse, Amanda’s House of Elegance is ready to solve all of your fall decor needs! We suggest slowly transitioning your home’s decor to including fall colours and pieces that match the changing exterior. Come down to House of Elegance to fall in love with autumn once again!

Gold Is Fall Approved

If we had to assign a colour to the seasons, autumn would definitely be gold. Everywhere you look in the fall season you see warm hues of reds, oranges and gold’s. It is not a secret that gold in very on trend and at House of Elegance we are very on the gold train for injecting some autumn decor into your space. A gold touch here and there will add warmth and light to your home and we would love to show you how.

Let’s Bring The Outside In

Let’s be honest, there is nothing better then being outdoors in the autumn season. All of the leaves changing colours and the crisp, clean skies during the day, some may call it magical. Bring this feeling into your home by bringing in the colours of the changing leaves, greenery, and natural woods and stone. The feeling that fall brings needs to be brought inside and this can be easily achieved through your choice of decor. Perhaps a natural wood tray to display some festive pieces, or natural stone candle holders would truly bring the outside in.

Spice Up Your Space

And by adding “spice” I mean adding warmth to your space! The best way to do this is through warm candles and scents throughout your home. At Amanda’s House of Elegance, we love WoodWick candles for so many reasons. Not only are they made in a variety of fall approved colours and scents such as autumn, pumpkin pecan and warm wool (even the names provoke feelings of fall!), their wicks crackle as they burn bringing a fireplace feel into any room.

Elegant Pumpkins

While natural pumpkins themselves can be beautiful as a decor element, since we are only halfway through September, it may be a tad too early to invest in the real thing. Pumpkins are a true symbol of fall, and we think they can be used in an elegant way all through the autumn season. At Amanda’s House of Elegance we have some great alternative to the tradition Halloween pumpkin that are both elegant and that will inject some fall into your home.

Fall In Love with Autumn Textures and Patterns

There is nothing better then cozying up in the fall with a big chunky blanket and some beautiful pillows. Now that September is here and the temperatures outside will be slowly dropping, its time to replace your cottons and linen’s with wools and luxurious velvet fabrics. Pick out prints that highlight the colour tones in your house and also inspire warmth in your home. Plaids and rich hued florals are great for autumn.

Pick Rich Hues In Your Floral Displays

At House of Elegance, we love bright and beautiful floral arrangements especially when paired in one of our stunning vases. Now that the colours and temperature of the season is changing, its time to change up those flowers and add in richer hues and fall flowers to the mix. We love adding in fall foliage, sprays that add colour and texture and some greenery to tie it all together.

A Pillow and Its Pair: 6 Perfect Pillow Pairings

pillows .jpg

Every well design home needs well curated accents in order to successfully execute the desired look. While the bones of the design are often large pieces such as rugs and furniture, the best way to outfit your space is through smaller accents such as pillows and throw. Pillows can be changed up depending on the season or occasion; they can also be an easy way to change up the look of the room on a small budget. We love pillows at Amanda's House of Elegance. Here are our favourite pillow and throw combinations currently available in store right in the heart of downtown Kingston. We can't wait for you to add new life and design to your couches, beds and chairs. 

IMG_6031.JPG

A very classic set of pillows, but they will add new life to any space. The gorgeous grey large scale gingham is a modern take on a classic design. We love this pair because of the contrast between the muted tones and the bold patterns.

Grey Gingham Pillow - $79.95; Blush Pink Pillow - $59.95; Cream Floral Throw - $139.95

IMG_3798.JPG

Beautiful neutral pillows with bold and interesting prints and patterns can be a great choice for many homes. This over scale bird print is a great whimsical way to add some interest to any room while the cowhide pillow add some elegance and glam.

Bird Pillow - $64.95; Cowhide Metallic Pillow -$107.97

Beaded Quatrefoil Pillow - $69.95; Cream Metallic Pillow - $68.95

IMG_5687.JPG

Green is the perfect colour to add some life and energy to your space. We love subtle greens that lean more towards neutrals in a space and these pillows are the perfect example of this. The stripes and floral balance each other out perfectly.

Beige and Green Striped Pillow - $94.95; Green and Grey Floral Pillow - $64.95

IMG_3387.JPG

This is definitely the most eclectic of the pairings we came up with. All three pieces have bold prints but they are all working together to create a mixed-match look that is eclectic and fun. Coral/orange and navy pair beautifully but are an uncommon pair which adds a unique touch.

Orange Elephant Pillow - $66.95; Grey and Cream Pillow - $64.95; Blue chevron Throw - $98.95
