The weather has been a bit gloomy out here in the Hampton’s

The weather has been a bit gloomy out here in the Hampton’s lately, but there is no better
way to make your self feel crisp and energized than to buy new bedding. At Hildreth’s,
we have some of the nicest manufacturers of linens available and we show them on our
Display beds in both the East Hampton and the Southampton locations. The bedding
featured this month on the following bed is John Matouk. We have many styles and
colors. Please stop in and take a look….Maybe, just maybe you’ll just want to jump in!

This “ultra-distressed/barn-like” décor is very hot right now.
Surely you’ve noticed driftwood and re-claimed wood décor
if you’ve been furniture shopping.  Or just shopping in general.
Many retailers are displaying their merchandise with this linear yet
homey-comfy look.  The great thing—if you tend to favor a traditional,
country motif or a more modern streamlined look, these pieces work
And they’re very affordable—that 71”Long TV console is only $895!
Come see it in our showroom.

The weather outside is frightful……..

With the dropping temperatures one thing to keep in mind is keeping out the cold through heat loss from your windows. There are many ways to insulate your windows with attractive window treatments either custom made from our on sight workroom or the vast assortment of window treatments made by Hunter Douglas Fabrications. The architella collection in particular is very efficient in keeping the cold out as well as the heat in the summer. There are child safety features available on most shades so as not to worry about putting them in the baby’s room where keeping the baby cozy and warm is top priority.
Come in and let one of on staff designers guide you through the best selection for your particular needs.

Mixing Patterns

Are you always questioning mixing patterns in your home?
It’s not as complex as some may think.
For a new look to refresh a room, find throw pillows of the same intensity or color level
(for example pale colors w/pale, vivid colors w/vivid colors) with varying patterns. Add
a striped rug and/or a patterned throw. Share the colors through the room for balance.
On upholstered pieces you can create a statement with a bold pattern, or for a unique
look remember the collage sofa? Stop in for our newest fade and stain resistant washable
pillows and get in the mix!

When a guest comes to your door or, for that matter, when you
come home, what do you see? Sometimes we get so busy we
overlook the entry to our homes but it is the first thing anyone sees
when they arrive at our homes. Is there a doormat outside the door
for wet or muddy shoes? Once the door is open is it welcoming
and inviting?

There are many ways to achieve a warm entry. A country hall tree,
a console or chest, a mirror or artwork, a bench or settee, area rug
and lighting all says “Welcome to my home.” At Hildreth’s Dept.
we can help you put together the perfect entrance to your home.

After another banner year of furniture sales here at Hildreths,
I was so happy to take a nice, peaceful RELAXING break at
home, as you can see.  Here I dozed off on my super-comfy Klaussner
“Patterns” slipcovered sofa, covered in my soft-as-ever Dash & Albert
Throw.  Behind me is my FAVORITE accessory—3-tiered photo screen
from Hildreths’ Housewares Department.
EVERYTHING in my house is from Hildreths because it’s all beautiful, comfortable and affordable!

The cats couldn’t agree more as they relax on my bed, mattress and linens from our bath department.  Beautiful sheer curtains/panels also from Hildreths.

Interiors and Art

Interiors and Art
If you own wonderful art you may want to consider doing a mono-chromatic room. Having a lot of pattern and color in a room can compete with your artwork in a very distracting way.
You also need to be careful not to use the colors in a painting in the room it is being hung as you will drain the color from the painting. At one time it was thought you could take the colors in a painting and decorate a room using the same colors - if this is an idea that appeals to you - you can do it, you just can't then use the picture in the room.

Plants/Floral Arrangements and your Décor

Just as artwork compliments your décor, plants and floral arrangements also make your
house a home. They bring life to a room and incorporated correctly, plants contribute
to the overall atmosphere you seek. For example a tall palm tree can lead your eyes to
remarkable architecture and create a beach or exotic theme. Geraniums or ivy give a
country feel and fill a space atop a cabinet or an empty shelf. A rose or peony adds a
touch of softness and romance to a beautiful bedroom. A vase full of sunflowers brings a
smile to any room. Visit us for a vast assortment of decorative arrangements and plants
to put the finishing touches in your home.

Happy New Year

As we start the New Year, we make resolutions to eliminate bad
habits and make a new start at being healthier, working harder
or smarter, and being more organized. As we spend more time
indoors in the winter, our homes can become part of our New
Year’s resolutions. If the budget will not allow for a house full of
new furnishings, there are still things we can do to create warm
beautiful surroundings in our homes. Try arranging furniture
in a different way; if you have many accessories, group and/
or minimize them; if you have no accessories, try adding a few
that accentuate your color scheme. One of the tried and true
methods for improving our homes is always a fresh coat of paint
in a different color and painting the ceiling 10 percent of the same
color mixed with white. If you have decided to paint a room
white, try painting the ceiling a pale color, such as pale gray or
blue and make your home ready for the New Year.

Many customers ask about daybeds--for childrens' rooms, dens, sun rooms and
living rooms.
Daybeds can be modern, traditional, wood, iron and/or upholstered.
If you live in a small cottage or apartment, the daybed can double a your
sofa and your bed.
And they look great!
They can be accessorized with decorative pillows and blankets/throws or
left minimal for a clean, sleek look.
Because there's myriad frame finishes and/or upholstery fabrics, you can
make it
truly unique!
