Baer’s Furniture Acknowledges That Todays’ Consumers Are Savvier

Today’s consumers are much more sophisticated. Most people do the bulk of their research online. They come into the store with a better idea of what they want. However, furniture buying still involves the senses: people want to feel the fabrics, sit on the cushions, and see the colors of the pieces before they buy. They also want to ask questions to ensure that they are getting a quality product. They may want value and good prices, but they also want quality.

But how do you prepare for furniture shopping? This is another area in which consumers have become much more knowledgeable. They can research on sites such as Houzz and Pinterest and get inspiration from shows they watch on HGTV. They know what they like and dislike. That was the case for Susan Stern. She explains how interior design consultant Jesse Shannon helped her find exactly what she wanted. “Mr. Jesse Shannon was the catalyst that made this all possible. I was looking online for a recliner similar to the one I inherited from my mother. … My whole experience has been nothing but a joy and I am so satisfied with my purchase.” Read more of Susan Stern’s Baer’s Furniture Review.

Liven up Your Décor with a Leather Accent Loveseat from Broyhill

People usually pick sofas in a neutral or bright color, but there’s nothing wrong with trying something a little different to create a unique space. Have you considered a pink leather sofa? Pink has gotten bad rap, often thought of a feminine or girly and appropriate for a child’s bedroom. However, pink also reflects romance, compassion, and elegance. When you add an accent sofa in pale pink, you bring a touch of the unexpected to any room. A pink leather loveseat from the Perspectives Collection by Broyhill gives you an option that is fresh and unique without being overly girlish.



Begin your process by focusing on the pink loveseat itself. We’re not talking about hot pink, magenta, fuchsia, or even rose in this case. If you are not used to decorating with pink, it’s best to start with a soft, gentle pink. Throw pillows in dark purple or dark blue will make your loveseat look dazzling, and be sure to use them in other fabrics in the room, such as drapes and area rugs. You can also make a subtler statement by using white for accessories instead of bolder colors. Dark wood, neutral colors, chocolate brown, and subtle industrial touches are softened by a pink sofa. Or you can go bolder by mixing several shades and patterns of pink.

Once you’ve determined the colors you want to use, you can move on accent pieces surrounding the loveseat. Try table lamps with crystal, acrylic, or silver bases and add black and white shades in stripes, circles or other geometric patterns. Incorporate silver finishes on framed art, photos, and mirrors. Fresh flowers in a crystal or glass vase liven up any room.


Next focus on the wall color: white or other neutral shades are safe choices that will highlight your pink loveseat. Or you can try something a little unusual such as green, orange, or even different hues of pink. Your color choices depend on what atmosphere you want to create in your room.

Decorating a living room isn’t rocket surgery, and if you have a sense of what is charming and chic you can design an amazing living space. The element of surprise created by adding an unexpected element, such as a pink leather sofa, is an easy way to amplify your décor. It’s not for everyone, but will certainly make your style stand out in a crowd.

The SWFL Choice Awards are determined by reader voting, which makes this achievement even more significant. Being honored as the best by your community is a special honor. Last year Baer’s Furniture earned three golds, the first time a furniture and design store had won three gold awards in the same year. And earned is right. This year’s awards are a result of Baer’s continuing commitment to their community and their insistence on continuously improving their level of service.

Naples Daily News readers selected the award-winners in an online voting process. Voting began May 22 and ended June 5. The Daily News has broken the awards into seven categories such as entertainment, restaurants, and shopping, with 168 subcategories within those main categories. It is estimated that 98,000 readers of the Daily News voted.

 This year’s event was the largest in SWFL Choice Award history. Almost 650 business owners and entrepreneurs, as well as their friends and family, celebrated together with drinks, entertainment, and raffles. Previous winners have noted that they have had an uptick in business that they attribute directly to winning the award.

They also have an in-house, free design service available for Baer’s customers. Their qualified design team is ready to help put the finishing touches on your home décor, or design your home from the ground up.

Warming Up Your Home Décor for Fall

While fall is not all that different from summer time in Florida, it does mean some cooler weather and preparation for the holiday season. Although there is not much of a seasonal change, you can still bring fall into your home through your décor.

Decorating your home for fall doesn’t have to involve a complete makeover. By adding complimenting accents, you can enjoy a new home décor look before the holidays.



Use Fall’s Bounty

Apples, cranberries, pears, and pumpkins are all fall favorites and you can use them throughout your home. Place some faux gourds on your mantle or use cranberries to surround a pillar candle inside a hurricane vase. Apples are a great touch in a basket or decorative bowl in the kitchen. White faux pumpkins are growing in popularity, as are colorful faux pumpkins. Choose colorful pumpkins that fit in with your current home décor.

Accent Your Home with Fall Scents

Cloves, spice, and cinnamon are all common autumn scents. Scents can be added through candles, essential oils, a cinnamon broom, or by making your own potpourri. You can also mix together ingredients like apples, oranges, cinnamon, and anise and simmer them on your stovetop to fill your home with a great aroma.

Fall Foliage

While you won’t be able to go outdoors to find brightly colored leaves in Florida, you can find faux foliage at your nearest craft store. Place pinecones in a decorative bowl in the living room. Find faux berry branches and place them in vases throughout your home. As Florida is not known for its fall foliage, use it sparingly when decorating during this time of year.

Accessorize

Swap out bright, summery home accessories, like throw pillows, for warm earthy tones, like red, orange, brown and gold. A new throw blanket is also a great way to add a touch of fall to the living room or your bedroom.

Cozy Up Outside

A fire pit is a great way to enjoy fall in Florida. It’s also a great time to cozy up on your patio furniture and read a book or dine outdoors. Add some brown, orange or gold throw pillows, use a new throw blanket for when the weather cools at night and add some lanterns for more lighting.


There are many ways you can enjoy fall in Florida and bring just a touch of the north down south.

Reasons to Buy Just a Headboard

So, you are decorating your bedroom and wondering if you need to buy a complete bed, or can make do with just a headboard. There are many reasons to choose just a headboard instead of an entire bed frame that includes both a headboard and a footboard. Here some reasons why you might want to consider using only a headboard.

Space Constraints

Small bedrooms can look even smaller when filled with a bed that has both a headboard and a footboard. One way to make your room look bigger is to eliminate the footboard. The simple shape and sophisticated faux leather basket weave upholstery on the Shadow Play headboard adds interest without making the room seem too small. Headboards that have an interesting texture can help give your bedroom a spacious feel. But more than that, not only does a headboard make your room seem bigger, it also actually gives you more space. Walking around a room with just headboard is much easier – there is nothing in the way to stub your toes on in the darkness or dim lighting. Your toes, hips, shins, and knees will be eternally grateful.

Easier to Make the Bed

We may not admit it, those of us who don’t, but not everyone makes their bed every morning. But if you have a bed with just a headboard, you may save yourself a few headaches. All that tucking is much easier, not to mention faster, without a footboard. You may even save yourself some broken fingernails and scraped knuckles. You may even find yourself making your bed more often.

Taller People

Using just a headboard is a great option for someone taller. It may not solve every problem, but it will keep you from kicking the footboard in the middle of the night. It is also a good way to add sleeping space without adding cost.

Bed Skirts and Dust Ruffles

In addition to being easier to make a bed without a footboard, it is also easier to find bedding that fits on it. Beds with footboards require dust ruffles or bed skirts made specifically for them.

Personal Preference

While there are many practical reasons to use just a headboard, the most common one is personal preference. Some people just prefer to have just a headboard.

Preparing Your Home for Holiday Guests

preparing your home for entertaining holiday guests
Get your home ready for entertaining holiday guests.

The holiday season is officially here. As you prepare a delicious Thanksgiving menu and get ready to decorate your home with all your favorite fall finds, it's also time to start thinking about prepping your home for holiday guests.

No matter if you plan to have two guests or ten, or if they're staying for a weekend or a full week, preparing your home can help make the process easier for both you and your guests.

Declutter

Don't wait to declutter your home in order to make room for your guests and their luggage. Free up space in the foyer, den, dining room and kitchen. Remove unnecessary items from countertops, linen closets and guest bedrooms. Think of this time as spring cleaning 2.0.

Make Upgrades

It might be time for a new coat of paint or time to oil those squeaky doors. If your guest bedroom has yet to be used, consider buying a fresh bedding set for your guests or a sleeper sofa, such as the Broyhill Queen Sleeper Sofa, for your den. Add a ceiling fan and light combination in the guest bedroom, and consider adding a chest so guests can put away their clothes rather than live out of a suitcase.

Prepare the Kitchen

The kitchen is the most popular gathering place during the holidays. From breakfast to dinner, guests will gather around the kitchen for meal preparation, to grab drinks, or to simply chit chat with their hosts. Consider creating a coffee station in the dining room for your guests so they don't crowd the kitchen in the morning. Servers, such as the Contemporary Bartlett Tiered Server, are a great option for setting out a continental buffet for breakfast or midday nibbles like a charcuterie platter.

Offer More Storage Space

More guests mean more stuff everywhere. Consider adding a rack with hooks for hanging scarves and jackets in the foyer. Add open shelves in the bathroom where guests can easily find extra towels or toiletries. Outfit the guest bedroom with small baskets filled with magazines or light reading material, tissues, bottled water and other goodies. Make sure the guest bedroom has plenty of closet space and empty drawers.

Move Furniture Around

Create an inviting space by moving around your living room furniture. Furniture arrangements can change how your guests chat while you're preparing culinary delights in the kitchen. All your furniture should be around the same height so people can talk eye-to-eye. If you need more seating, consider buying a new chair or chair and ottoman set.
