Bringing the Summer Vibe Indoors with Ennis Furniture

 

As June unfolds and the essence of summer fills the air, the desire to capture the season’s vibrancy and warmth indoors becomes irresistible. At Ennis Furniture, we believe in the power of interior design to bridge the outdoor and indoor spaces, creating a seamless transition that allows you to enjoy the summer vibe from the comfort of your home. Incorporating elements like lighting, color palettes, textures, and accent pieces can transform your space into a summer sanctuary. This blog explores how to infuse your home with the spirit of the season.

Lighting: Summer is all about brightness and warmth. Opt for lighting fixtures that mimic the natural light of summer days. Think airy, open designs that allow light to flow freely, enhancing the sunny ambiance of your room. Strategic placement of mirrors can also amplify natural light, making spaces feel larger and more inviting.

Color Palettes: Embrace colors that reflect the summer season. Shades of blue, reminiscent of the ocean, along with sunny yellows, vibrant greens, and soft corals, can bring the essence of summer into your home. The stylish and modern Zelda Sofa by Precedent Furniture, with its deep sea blue hue, acts as a perfect centerpiece to anchor your summer-inspired color scheme.

Textures: Summer textures are all about creating a sense of comfort and ease. Incorporate natural fibers like linen, cotton, and rattan to add a tactile dimension to your interiors. These materials not only evoke the casual, laid-back feel of summer but also help to keep your space feeling light and breezy.

Accent Pieces: Details matter when bringing the summer vibe indoors. Uttermost’s Ocean Gems Coral Wall Decor, with its handcrafted design that recreates the look of live sea coral, offers a heavily textured ivory and tan finish that captures the essence of the ocean’s treasures. Such accent pieces serve as focal points, bringing the beauty and mystery of summer into your home.

Bringing It All Together: Integrating summer elements into your home decor is about balancing color, texture, and light to create a cohesive look. Start with a statement piece and build your room around it with complementary colors and textures. Accent pieces can add depth and interest, tying the theme together.

At Ennis Furniture, our expert interior designers are passionate about helping you bring the summer vibe into your home. Whether you’re looking for the perfect sectional to anchor your living room or unique accent pieces to complete your summer-inspired décor, we’re here to guide you through the selection process. Visit us in Spokane, Boise, and the Tri-cities to discover how we can help you transform your home into a summer retreat, or make it fit for any look you desire!

The Perfect Entertainment Room: What Should I Have?

April is the perfect time to rejuvenate your home with a fun and relaxing entertainment space. Whether it’s for family movie nights, hosting friends for the big game, or simply a place to unwind, the right furniture and decor can significantly enhance the enjoyment and functionality of your entertainment room. At Ennis Furniture, we pride ourselves on offering stylish, high-quality furniture that can transform any room into the perfect spot for entertainment. Here are some interior design tips and ideas to help you create an inviting entertainment room in your home.

Seating is Key

Comfortable and ample seating is crucial for an entertainment room. Sectionals are an excellent choice for providing generous seating while maximizing space. Look for durable, easy-to-clean fabrics that can withstand frequent use, especially if you have children or pets. Consider sectionals with built-in recliners or chaise lounges for the ultimate relaxation experience. Ennis Furniture offers a variety of sectional styles to fit your room’s size and your personal taste.

Functional Bookcases

Bookcases are not only for books; they’re a versatile storage solution for your entertainment room. Use them to display collectibles, store games, or organize media accessories. A well-styled bookcase can also serve as an attractive focal point in the room. Choose from a range of materials and finishes to match your room’s decor. Mixing open shelves with closed cabinets can provide both display space and hidden storage for a clutter-free environment.

Wall Art Adds Personality

The right wall art can instantly elevate the look of your entertainment room, adding personality and visual interest. Uttermost’s Shore Birds Framed Prints are a perfect addition, bringing a dash of wayfaring style to your space. The coastal artwork, with its light and airy feel, is accented by clean, white mats and surrounded by distressed, whitewashed wooden frames, adding a serene and inviting ambiance to your entertainment room. Each print, protected under glass, is a beautiful reminder of the tranquility and beauty of the seashore.

Incorporate Lighting

Good lighting is essential for creating the right mood in your entertainment room. Adjustable dimmer switches allow you to control the ambiance, from bright for reading or games to dimmed 

for movie watching. Floor lamps and table lamps add layers of light and can be moved as needed to illuminate different areas of the room.

At Ennis Furniture, our goal is to help you create an entertainment room that is both stylish and functional. Our expert interior designers are excited to work with you, offering personalized advice and recommendations based on your space, style, and needs. Visit us in Spokane, Boise, and the Tri-cities to find the perfect furniture and decor for your entertainment room, and transform your home into a haven for relaxation and fun.

 

Spring into Spring with Fresh Colors & Fabrics at Ennis Fine Furniture!

Colorful throw pillows and accents add a vibrant touch.
Spring into Spring with Fresh Colors & Fabrics at Ennis Fine Furniture!

As the weather warms and the first signs of spring emerge, it’s the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate our homes with fresh colors and fabrics that infuse our living spaces with energy and vibrancy. Ennis Furniture invites you to embrace the season’s renewal by introducing new design elements that reflect the freshness of spring.

This season, we’re seeing a delightful resurgence of natural materials and textures in home decor. Wicker and woven elements are making a significant comeback, offering a touch of rustic charm and warmth to interiors. These materials, known for their durability and versatility, are ideal for both indoor and outdoor furniture, providing a seamless transition between the two spaces.

Floral patterns, too, are blooming in interior design trends, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside. Whether it’s through wallpaper, throw pillows, or upholstery, floral motifs in soft pastels or vibrant hues can instantly lift the mood of a room. They pair beautifully with solid colors, adding depth and interest to the design palette.

Speaking of colors, spring is the time to experiment with vibrant shades that mirror the natural awakening happening outdoors. Think bold blues, greens, and yellows that echo the sky, grass, and sunshine. These colors not only brighten a space but also evoke feelings of happiness and tranquility. Incorporating these hues through upholstered furniture or accent pieces can make a dramatic impact on your home’s aesthetic.

One charming item to consider this spring is the Wildwood Next Generation Lamp. This whimsical, hand-painted ceramic baby bunny lamp is perfect for adding a playful touch to a nursery, child’s room, or any cozy nook in your home. Its delightful design is sure to spark joy and add a unique character to your interior.

Another piece that embodies the essence of spring is the Lexington Living Room Agave Chair. This handsome wicker chair, with its bold classic features and traditional build, offers plush comfort and a relaxing air. Its construction speaks to the season’s trend of incorporating natural materials, while its design ensures it remains a timeless addition to any home.

As you consider refreshing your home this spring, remember that small changes can have a big impact. Start with one or two elements—whether it’s the inclusion of a home accessory, adding a statement piece like the Agave chair, or even simply introducing new colors and fabrics through smaller decor items.

Ennis Furniture is here to help you navigate the latest spring trends and find the perfect pieces to revitalize your home. Visit us in Spokane, Boise, or the Tri-cities to speak with our design experts, who are eager to assist you in breathing new life into your space with fresh colors and fabrics.

Incorporating Antique Elements into Modern Design

As spring nears, it’s an ideal time to refresh your home’s interior. Ennis Furniture, proudly serving Spokane, Boise, and the Tri-Cities, advocates for a design strategy that skillfully combines antique with modern elements. This approach does more than just redefine a space; it adds a layer of warmth, sophistication, and personal history to your home.

Antique: The Pinnacle of Luxury

Introducing antique pieces into a contemporary setting creates a distinctive, inviting atmosphere. These pieces carry a timeless elegance and a narrative depth that new items alone may lack, offering an intriguing mix that can captivate guests and elevate the overall design of your home. The blend also introduces a unique aesthetic diversity, making your space truly one-of-a-kind.

The integration of antique design offers practical benefits as well. It introduces a cozy, established feel to any room, grounding the sleek lines of modern design with rich textures and seasoned craftsmanship. This eclectic mix not only stands out visually but ensures your decor remains both stylish and meaningful over time.

Materials & Fabrics: A Necessary Consideration 

Choosing the right materials is key to this harmonious blend. Look for aged woods, vintage metals, and classic leathers to add an antique flair that complements modern simplicity. These textures and finishes bring depth and character to the space.

For example, Howard Miller’s clocks stand out as pieces that beautifully bridge the gap between past and present, offering both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Likewise, the Harper Tufted sofa by Hancock and Moore showcases how traditional styles can seamlessly fit into and enhance modern interiors, marrying comfort with classic design.

We’re Here to Help you
