While growing up, we all dream about transforming into a more elegant version of ourselves, yet we still want to stay fresh enough to be approachable. The best way to become “elegantly-fresh” is to actually live this way.

Show Off Your White Furniture

White is a tricky color, yet it can make an incredible impression if used properly. White can also wash a room out if not used appropriately. At Baer’s Furniture, we want to help you maximize the potential that rests on your white pieces. You want to use white to your advantage, and the easiest way to do this is by creating contrast. If you have white pieces, don’t paint your walls white. You don’t have to take this to heart and go to the other side of the color pallet. Just adding a simple grey or blue will do, but avoid light crèmes if you possible. You then want to accessorize your elements with a definite and bold color, but keep it consistent. This can be done with purple orchids or even green plants or ferns. Finally, you want to draw attention to these pieces by allowing natural light to fill the room, so open up your curtains and let those sun rays dance in your lively spaces.
The Mirren Harbor Full/Queen Arched Panel Headboard adds a calming touch to any room. With a white finish on the wooden veneers, this piece is perfect for any guestroom or master bedroom. Pick a comforter that complements this piece to make it come alive, calming colors such as light blue or lavender are recommended.
