A Blossom of Personality with Kincaid
As heatwave upon heatwave continues to emanate from our unblinking sun, the push to spend the entire month of August inside has perhaps never been as strong as the one from this year’s warm spell. Unless you’ve got a swamp cooler and fan trailing you like a drone around your patio and immediate yard, one can imagine most get-togethers and dining parties will be inside events for the foreseeable future. Those new Venetian Outdoor Living Room sets from Brown Jordan will unfortunately have to wait. No need to fret on this matter; for an invitation to a cooled, bespoke dining room will have your guests wishing they had been introduced to your little oasis a lot sooner! Having spent most of the last two years indoors, it may be difficult to find a fresh take on a room you’re so familiar with, but with the blaring heat outside, an escape to a comfortable area to eat and unwind is a must.
But it doesn’t have to be boring! Wrapping your surroundings with a whisk of new flair will bring peace and comfort to any troubled mind. Not only for your guests, but for the homemaker as well; you have to live with it the remainder of the time, so it should reflect your sense of self. To create this special space, or simply to revamp an existing dining room, recent trends have again left the minimalism and sleek look of the past decade to a more expressive, maximalist style. A ‘blossom of personality’, if you will. Bold, bright, and vibrant colors, with unorthodox, typically-unused hues are the right flavor for your summer-vibing, expressive dining room. Everything from the rug to the rafters can be a blank canvas for expression. However, for those wanting to experiment with just a dash of this new spice, Ennis has numerous tabletop decor and illumination choices to let that vibrant streak be localized to one area. Wildwood is our premier maker of fun and colorful lamp bases, each one a unique blend of impressionistic abstraction and flawless ceramics.
Shabby Chic and Rustic Chic styles have been experiencing a resurgence lately–and lucky for us– as these classics fit in nicely, focusing on the feel the furniture brings rather than its outward appearance; a real and weathered look that reminds us to champion the imperfections we see. Ennis carries multiple manufacturers that harness such qualities. For instance, Heckman has a whole line of beautifully stained cherry veneers, with a deep, distressed look that’s awash in character; a champion of these ideals. Whatever the style family, patterns and ornate designs should be aplenty; the more colorful, the better. Having one whole wall dedicated to a gallery of personal decor (a medley of family photos, self-made art and sentimental antiques) will help firmly establish this homey aesthetic, while still giving a visceral ‘pop’.
Luckily, your local, family-owned furniture store–Ennis Fine Furniture–has been ramping up for this turn of events so we will be ready for your dining room’s next metamorphosis. Take a gander at our dining room sets from Kincaid Furniture. Rustic, workmanlike lines flow along either a brightly-painted colored finish or a distressed wood stain, both offering a strong visual base for our custom-fabric patterns and designs. We have dozens of fabrics to choose from and countless combinations therein; one of our many specialties here at Ennis. See for yourself at any of our locations: Boise, Tri-Cities and Spokane!
