Spice up the tabletop with a dressy placemat! Whether it’s a new season, holiday or you’re simply looking for an update, there is something out there to fit your fancy. Without rehashing setting the table from top to bottom—we covered that here—let’s begin with a brief discussion on layering. In order for your tabletop to coordinate, the table can’t be set with all bold pieces and patterns in differing color schemes. Eventually, you’ll have a multitude of pieces that feel too busy, don’t work with any other pieces, or only fit into a...

What Makes a Royal-Pedic Mattress So Good?

What Makes a Royal-Pedic Mattress So Goo...

Let’s be honest, everyone loves to sleep. A good night’s sleep is worth its weight in “Z’s”. Bad puns aside, Royal-Pedic Mattresses are designed with your best night’s sleep in mind. A Royal-Pedic Mattress is two-sided, so they can be flipped around, increasing the mattresses longevity. There are no chemically created memory foams used which reflect heat and emit possibly dangerous poisonous gasses. Comfort comes with multiple facets and is a key ingredient in a well cooked mattress. Perhaps the most compelling information came out of...

What exactly is a down alternative pillow made of? Microfiber. What’s microfiber? Great question. Microfiber is a synthetic fiber, meaning it is not grown or found in any natural state. Synthetics are products which are manufactured. After fundamentally altering something naturally occurring, a synthetic fiber is reconstituted into a distinctly different end product. Polyester, just one example of a synthetic fiber, is manufactured this way. While polyester is likely the most famous of synthetic fibers, the textile industry has increasingly utilized synthetic...

It’s reasonably safe to assume a vase will come out for freshly cut flowers. However, with a little creativity, a vase is capable of more than a display piece for a bouquet of flowers. Simon Pearce has inspired us to take a vase in a different direction, with a new purpose, for original, unique ways to decorate the home. For example, substitute the flowers for a little slice of nature. In the below left photo, Simon Pearce has created a near terrarium type of arrangement of dirt, rocks and moss (feel free to add a tiny critter if you are so inclined). Or, if nature...

Luxury Bath Rugs Offer Utility, Comfort and Style

Luxury Bath Rugs Offer Utility, Comfort ...

Luxury Bath Rugs come in so many different makes it may take a minute to sort through all the terminology. Whether it’s the type of fiber, the length of the fiber, the amount of times the fiber’s been twisted or the density of the fibers in a square meter, bath rugs can quickly appear dizzying. While these terms are all about a rug’s composition—which we previously explored with the bath rug’s not-so-distant cousin bath towels here—what we’re aiming for with our bath rugs is to land on indulgent. Indulgence is more than words and numbers...

Monograms and Embroidery

Monograms and Embroidery

As the oldest form of identification in the world, monograms date back to Greek and Roman times. They served many roles, from indicating social status, to serving as a signature for royals and artists, to being a form of currency in the barter system. Perhaps most obvious, they identified property and were typically ornate, which makes them desirable when creating elegant gifts even today. Monogramming adds a personal touch to any project, and we have a simple guide outlining some fun products that can be monogrammed and embroidered in house in our Ketchum, Idaho...
