Iron Accents Showroom Inspires DIY Home Designers

Iron Accents customers value beauty in their home environment that expresses their personalities. Recently, a customer explained: “I love this store. There are so many decorating ideas I get for my home just walking around. I love stores like this. There aren’t enough of them around.”

Many of our customers have homes at the beach and mountains. We’ve often been asked for seaside themed products. With our customers in mind, we created a ocean-side area for our showroom. But we didn’t want it to be bright primary colors and navy stripes. We chose soft cool and warm colors with a vintage feel. The Driftwood Collection evokes a lazy summer day at the beach with its neutral range of sun-bleached whites and tans. The Sawgrass Collection invites breezy dreams of a tropical island paradise with its alluring hues of misty ocean green and blue. Both collections bring stripes into play for casual laid-back dining. The area demonstrates how easy it is to add that coastal atmosphere wherever you live. Nevertheless, you might need some extra help to pull it all together. Customers come to our store every day looking for expert advice for their home decorating projects.

It’s worth visiting the showroom just to see the paint. A local painter worked with Iron Accents’s Home Designer Terri Winans to arrive at the perfect chocolate color for the wall. Everyone agrees they did an outstanding job. It is the perfect rich brown. It’s yummy. The color provides a backdrop for the soft blues and tans in our color pallet making them “pop.” We used more than one wall color in our space. In the photograph (left), black and whiteBox Signs hang opposite of the table and chairs. They contrast sharply with a stark white wall made of rugged lumber. Black and white coordinates well with our soft colors. But, we feature the signs for another reason, as well. Box Signs are one of our most popular items. They coordinate with almost any theme and color palette. They are priced right and make fantastic gifts. People just love to give and receive Box Signs. Our designer added a few new recently found pieces to the area. Boat oars prop in the corner; a ladder adds visual interest overhead, as well as an easy way to hang instant lighting; and this spectacular coffee table in the photograph. The table peeks out from beneath a vintage kitchen table. We finished the table with a rich pecan.

All of the pieces you see in the photographs are for sale in our showroom. We scour the rural countryside and often attend trade shows looking for beautiful items to repurpose. We think about a room down to the tiniest detail. Our designer included several frames with seaside prints in the space. Sand Dollar napkin rings add to the sea-side atmosphere. Iron metal fish definitely say coastal. In the end, we could not resist the patriotic call of red, white, and blue. A turn-of-the-century child’s chair–handmade with an oak splint seat– offers pretty storage for a kitchen linen towel. It reads: “I hope my ship comes in before my dock rots…”

The shelves below provide ample storage for other Americana style linen towels, napkins, and spectacular placemats with silver metal grommets along the left and right edges. The placemats are reversible. On one side, red dominates. On the other side, crisp white and dark and light blue create a striped pattern accented with stars. We invite you to visit our showroom and become inspired. Creative shoppers are always combining what is already on hand in their home with “new” pieces they find in our showroom. Best of all, we are here to offer you our expertise.
