Fresh for Spring: New Arrivals are Here

We’re feeling Spring in a big way… pops of pink, playful florals, warm neutrals, yep Spring is around the corner and ready to make itself at home.  It’s the perfect time of year to infuse a little freshness into your home and with our upcoming Spring Décor Sale you’ve got the perfect excuse to shop our newest arrivals.

We’re taking 15% off furniture, rugs, lighting, art & mirrors, pillows, throws, and florals March 5th – 9th, plus we’ve got some incredible artisan events while you shop. Here’s a sneak-peek at some of the fresh home accents that are making a statement for Spring:

Picture Perfect

One of our favorite new trends in wall-art has arrived.  Textured, hand-woven textiles beautifully framed to create original pieces of art that are dimensional, detailed, and different. Each piece is thoughtfully crafted and all assembled by hand.

For a clean, contemporary farmhouse look, you’ll love our collection of soft-nosed palominos, regal stags, angora goats, fury Icelandic ponies, and more loveable little creatures. Available in statement sizes or smaller pieces to mix and match, this collection will add a relaxed vibe to any space.

Plus, bold geometric collections with a mid-century vibe, the ancient technique of mud-painting applied to contemporary imagery, and more fascinating plays on texture, pattern, and monochromatic color.  All artfully framed and ready to show your walls some love.

A Touch of Texture

The art of texture is taking center-stage in our newest collection of textiles.  Rich materials and handwoven designs are thoughtfully combined to add the perfect finishing touch to your space.  From textured and tonal throw-pillows to accent your sofa or bed to hand-hooked rugs that will anchor any room. Our latest collection of vintage vinyl floor cloths has also arrived in rich colors and bold patterns. These gems are spill-proof, slip-proof, and will make a statement in any room.

Take it Outside

With the onset of Spring, we’re ready to embrace that artfully relaxed, outdoor entertaining vibe. To pull it all together, we’ve stocked-up on effortless entertaining essentials.  Our newest dinnerware pattern, Pacifica, has a modern, matte finish, perfect for a casual weekend gathering or everyday use.  These newcomers are available in 4 easy to mix colors; rose pink, vanilla bean, artichoke green, and seed grey.  For a kid-friendly option or something to take to the pool or cookout, our fresh new arrivals in fruity and floral melamine patterns have summer written all over them.  Top it all off with our gorgeous new colored glass barware, festive, fun, and sure to raise those happy hour spirits.

Special Events

We are thrilled to showcase three trunk-shows during our Spring Décor Sale. We will be celebrating with fabulous giveaways, gifts-with-purchase, and 15% off of each trunk show collection.

  • Thursday, March 5th, meet Pam Vincent of Maple Leaf at Home. Inspired by a love of entertaining and spending time with family and friends, Maple Leaf serving boards make a cherished personalized gift for all of life’s celebrations.
  • Friday, March 6th, Emme Siegall of Michael Aram will showcase Aram’s beautiful collection of handcrafted designs. A celebration of nature and ancient craftsmanship, these pieces are as much fine art as functional serving pieces.
  • Saturday, March 7th, Beatriz Ball will share her collection of lustrous metal-ware. Made entirely by hand, using the ancient art of sand casting, these pieces have a depth of character and personality that only a handcrafted product can.

Holiday Centerpieces

‘Tis the season to eat, drink, be merry… aka host, host, and do some more hosting.  We love to entertain but know that from now until January 1st, it’s a marathon of shopping, decorating, and entertaining.  Homefest is here to help with some seasonal décor ideas that will go the distance.

We’ve updated our collection of centerpieces for the holidays, and they’ll take you from Thanksgiving to Christmas and beyond.  With our beautiful centerpiece trays as your base, we’ve curated a collection of ornaments, miniature trees, hurricanes, and votives to bring that holiday cheer to your table or mantle…the best part is, by swapping out a few seasonal elements, it can easily be updated all year long.

Bold & Bountiful: Fall Centerpieces

That fall feeling in finally here, the weather is starting to cool, the leaves are changing, and I for one, am excited to pull out my boots and scarves!  In addition to embracing a new fall wardrobe, I couldn’t be more ready to usher rich autumn colors into my home with cozy throws and pillows, abundant fall florals, and a few home accent pieces that exude the richness and warmth of the season.

If you’ve been following Homefest for a while, you know that one of our favorite design solutions is our collection of “instant centerpieces”… particularly this time of year, when we go from tailgating and pumpkin-clad porches to Thanksgiving feasts to Christmas in a matter of weeks.  Our instant centerpieces are an easy way to update your mantle or table-scape for every holiday and season with a few simple elements.

This year’s selection, if I do say so myself, is one of our best!  With a beautiful centerpiece tray, ranging from shiny metallics to a rustic wood trug, as your base, we’ve curated a collection of hurricanes and votives, seasonal botanical elements, and accent pieces in rich fall colors to create a beautiful fall centerpiece.

The best part is, you can buy the entire centerpiece kit online (with or without the tray, for those of you that already own one).  It’s as easy as that… and it can be easily updated for Christmas or New Years by swapping out a few elements.  So make sure to check back for our holiday centerpieces in the next couple of months!

Fast Fashion for the Table

At Homefest, we’re often asked about the latest trends in dinnerware and entertaining. Over the years, we’ve seen a departure from our mothers’ china cabinet with full service for 12 in favor of a bit more personality, durability, and function. Nowadays we want our dinnerware to reflect our personal aesthetic, fit with our busy lifestyle, and we want to know where our products are sourced and about the talented artisans who create them. We are yearning for handcrafted dinnerware that celebrates the authentic and imperfect charm of each unique piece. We want dishes that look great on a formal holiday table yet are equally accessible for a take-out dinner around the kitchen island. With this in mind, we’ve taken a diversified buying approach.
