Decorating with red and green is not just for the holidays!

It's a versatile color combination that lasts all year long.

Red and green are so much more than a seasonal color combination. You can choose from many shades of this color duo, including sage green with Indian red, acid green with magenta, and tomato red with spring green.

Some shades of red and green are best in small quantities to add to a neutral décor, while others are perfect as the main colors in a room. For red and green as accent colors, think throw pillows, occasional furniture, artwork and linens. For these hues as the star, think upholstery and drapery fabrics, painted furniture, tile, stone and paint.

A bold red accent wall looks fabulous, and light green cabinets add drama to a red kitchen. Subtle red and green shades woven into oriental rugs spice up a neutral palette, and naturally occurring red and green colors in granite and other stone surfaces add beauty.

Think red and green for a color scheme that works every day, not just during the holidays.

Focus on your fireplace this winter.

Relax in front of a beautiful fire with family and friends.

There are so many ways to make your fireplace area beautiful - from the style and material of the fireplace and chimney to the design of the mantel and hearth, and even the furniture near your fireplace.
  • Purchase an antique wood or stone carved mantel and surround for a unique look.
  • Don't have a mantle at all! A fireplace can look beautiful with the brick, wood or stone extending to the ceiling.
  • Hang a custom framed mirror or beautiful piece of art over the mantel.
  • Add a unique fireplace screen for function and beauty.
  • Place big comfortable chairs near the fireplace to relax and warm up.
Get ready to bask in the glow of a beautiful hearth side experience with an updated fireplace.

To-Do List

  • Add candles to your winter lighting plan for extra illumination and romance.
  • Display beautiful bulb flowers such as paper whites, hyacinths, and tulips to bring the feel of spring into your home.
  • Use soft and cozy fabrics (such as cashmere, velvet, and flannel), for bedding and upholstery.
  • Purchase new lamps that will keep your house bright, and take a close look at your lampshades to see which need replacement.
  • Save money by purchasing energy-efficient window coverings, such as Hunter Douglas Duette® ArchitellaTM honeycomb shades. They feature a unique patented construction with a honeycomb nestled within a honeycomb for greater energy efficiency and sound absorption. Select from a radiant color palette.
  • Plan a family dinner in front of a roaring fireplace with a hearty casserole, fresh baked bread, and a warm fruit pie.
