Darker Days

shadow-living shadow 1-k_trends_cover_21357-5jb

The last few years in the design world have been filled with “light and bright” spaces utilizing whites, lighter woods, and very little color. Lately though, it seems like the design world is making a change. We’re seeing more contrast in spaces with moodier tons like Benjamin Moore’s 2017 color of the year- Shadow. Shadow is a deep saturated purple, much different from their 2016 color of the year- Simply White.



The best thing about these darker and moodier colors is that they pair beautifully with the beloved “light and bright” trend. We love the idea of adding dark elements to a lighter space like the gray upholstered bed, black cabinets, and charcoal sectional.

Even though there may be darker days ahead, remember how beautiful your home could be with a little contrast. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Get That Look- Formal Dining


TableSide ChairsEnd ChairsSconces – Server – Chandelier – Rug – Mirror

The beautiful space on the left side of the photo was designed by J & J Design Group, LLC. This formal dining room has the perfect mix of light and dark colors. We love how they used a darker table and server with a lighter rug and chairs to create some contrast.

The small and simple mirror adds some depth to the space without being overwhelming while an unexpected beaded chandelier adds brightness and natural coloring to the table.

Adding patterned curtains, succulent centerpieces, and and mercury glass candle sticks stylize the space and bring together all of the different elements.

The best part about these fixtures is that they’re versatile and don’t need to be used in a farmhouse style space.

Beautiful Bedding

We’re sharing something with you today that we haven’t talked about in a while: bedding! Bedding is a crucial part of making a bedroom beautiful, cozy, and unique.

Norwood carries a wide variety of bedding including both bedroom sets and custom bedding. You can check out some of the bedding we carry on our website here.

Most of our bedding includes multiple throw pillows, a comforter (or duvet), and bed skirt. This combination of pieces creates the perfect set with coordinating patterns, colors, and fabrics without becoming too “matchy”.

When choosing bedding you want to focus on two things: style and practicality. Investing in a bedroom set is a big decision, therefore the style of the pieces should be something that you know you’ll love for years to come. This doesn’t mean you have to choose a neutral, but instead a color and pattern that you have always loved, something that you feel is timeless. Practicality is also important in ensuring that your lifestyle goes well with the set you’ve chosen. If you have pets or small children on the bed, you may not want to choose something with beading. Similarly, if you live in a warmer climate you probably won’t want a heavy fabric like velvet or faux fur.

We have bedroom sets sprinkled throughout our showroom and lots more for you to order. Contact us today at (480) 892-0174 to take a look at bedding or stop by and see us!

Get That Look: Canopy Bed

Today’s Get That Look inspiration photo features a canopy bed. Canopy beds are often thought of as formal, feminine, and fancy. This particular bed is much more modern and masculine with its deep brown color and clean lines, the perfect stereotype breaker.

The night stand in the photo is a lighter color, but we opted for a dark brown bachelor’s chest with gold hardware to coordinate with the bed. Yellow tones are carried throughout the space with mustard pillows, the gold side table, and bronze lamp. The original photo also added in sapphire blue, a color we brought in with pillows and a ginger jar.

This space is a beautiful mix of serene and colorful with its neutral upholstery, baby blue walls, wood paneled ceiling, and nature inspired chandelier.

We would love to help you create your own serene bedroom. Come visit us and ask about our Complimentary Design Service today!
