Is there something you love enough to collect?

If your answer is yes, consider making the things you love part of your home design statement by grouping them and making them a focal point. The living or family room, the dining room, kitchen or even a plain hallway are all wonderful spots for a focal wall of the things you love.

As you will see in the illustrations, a collection of bird prints uniformly framed are
beautiful in the serene living room and a collection of antique shovels makes a white
room unforgettable. Whether it be art or objects, old, vintage or new, making your
collections part of your décor brings you home to life.

Whenever Hildreths displays upholstered beds, they’re very popular!
One terrific feature: you can choose the upholstery and/or leather to
give your bedroom your personal &  unique signature.
Some customers have been hesitant about fabric because of dirt and maintenance.
Today, there are so many “WearSsmart”, “Sunbrella”and microfibre fabrics as well as leather so your bed will always look beautiful.
And there are SO many styles!  You can choose a sleek, linear look or a very ornate style.
And everything in-between.  Come into Hildreths and see one on display in our beautifully re-designed bath department!

Bathroom Decorating

When you think about decorating your bathroom, you should give it the same style and
define it as you would any other room in your home. You want to make it inviting and
comfortable. There are several ways to do this. Invest in big, fluffy towels, wonderful
soaps and beautiful fixtures. You should keep decorations to a minimum and since heat
and moisture can be an issue, do not display valuable art or original photographs.
Always make sure that you have enough storage and counter space for the basics. Make
sure that the lighting is bright and keep candles close. They add a wonderful glow and
scent when you are enjoying a relaxing bath.

At Hildreth’s, we have a large assortment of towels, soaps, creams, storage and candles
to make your bath special!

Bringing in the season

It's not where you live that's important - But how you live. 
Taking time to enjoy the seasons and the holidays is one of the ways to enrich your life.
I have often heard it is the small things in life that make a difference -  so in keeping with this thought I would like to share one of the things I do when decorating for the holidays                                                   ~ Halloween ~

I go through pictures of my children when they were small and find the ones of them in their costumes. Then taking a few of my favorite frames or shopping for a few new ones, I switch out the existing photos and replace them with seasonal ones.   Mixing these in with a few pumpkins, gourds and fall flowers can be great fun!  If your frame collection could use some new additions - come to Hildreths and check out our beautiful selection of frames on display. You will not be disappointed!

Colors of Autumn

Autumn is here and change is in the air. As we prepare the outdoors by raking leaves and harvesting pumpkins and cornstalks for decoration, we can spruce up our interiors  as well. Accessorize for Autumn to gently prepare for the cooler months ahead with a change in pillows, perhaps in the warm colors that reflect the foliage that surrounds you.
Add throws for texture and comfort, something you can curl up in as you watch the football game and sip your warmed apple cider. Candles offer soothing light and welcome the scents of the season with cinnamon and spice.  Please visit us at Hildreths for a variety of Autumn accessories. We are glad to help you be happy and comfortable in your home all year.

Interior Design

There are a lot of things that should be considered when decorating the interior of your
house. You can expect better results if you are going to hire a professional interior
designer. A lot of people think that hiring an interior designer will cost them more
money, but the truth is it will even help you save money. An interior designer will show
you how to improve your house thus saving you money on mistakes that may be made.
When working with an interior designer we will meet with you, and work within your
budget, to make your space yours. Here at Hildreths we have professional interior
designers on staff to help you create the living spaces that inspire you.

Have Fun with Colors

Some customers are tentative using bold, and even muted, colors in their décor.
A great way to experiment with no commitment is with accessories—i.e.throw pillows, area rugs, blankets and even wall art.
In the pix from Hildreth’s Furniture showroom, notice the neutral sofa, with and without contrast pillows.  It’s great to have  major pieces such as sofas and entertainment units in warm tones and then accents in bright vivid colors or muted hues, such as seafoam, powdery blues and pinks.
Then, as the seasons change, your accessories can change to suit the time of year.  And it only takes minutes to switch.
When you order upholstery from Hildreth’s, you choose your pillows.  If you need help, we are experienced –and we’ll make it FUN!

Come see in our showroom…

Design Tip! Organization....

Whether you are furnishing a new home or refreshing your current space, we have a few tips to
keep you organized. Begin by choosing an organizer, whether a file folder or a binder, to hold
information on your design ideas and purchases. A floor plan helps to ensure proper spacing
and eliminates non-fit errors. Fabric swatches, paint chips and photos of your rooms and furnishings will assist when looking for additional items to complete your space.

The Design staff at Hildreth's are happy to help you as little or as much as you need to create a beautiful space that you will really love!

Design Tip of the day - Check your windows and doors!

With the temperature starting to drop its time to start checking your windows and doors for drafts that cause cool air to come in, especially if you own an older home.  Consider putting up drapes or shades that are lined and interlined with flannel.  This type of window treatment not only has a better look that can make the room feel warmer but can help with those heating bills.  So come into Hildreth's now and speak to one of our experienced Interior Designers.  Or call and make an appointment for someone to come to your home and suggest what might work best for you and your decorating needs - winter is coming and so is the cold weather!
