Start the New Year in Style with our Best of 2020
Many of the best home transformations grew out of necessity as we adapted to our new way of life in a pandemic world this year. Not unlike the Meadow Blue Butterfly, our homes evolved in style and function to meet our needs during an unpredictable and tumultuous time. From turning a guest room into a home office or creating the perfect bedroom oasis, we all had to find new ways to make our homes work for us.
Easily some of our best selling products and the quickest way to update a room is with an area rug. Our rug collection at Meadow Blu is unmatched! Whether your style is clean and understated or loud and bold, a rug can elevate your room with minimal effort. The Justina Blakeney x Loloi Symbology Collection rugs are hand-tufted of 100% wool offering playful elements in contemporary designs with contrasting pile heights and texture. The cream colors and multiple textures are perfect for a family room or home office. If you're looking to make more of a statement, the bold, bright and colorful Jardin Collection for Rife Paper Co. x Loloi is power-loomed in Turkey of 100% polyester making the series durable, affordable, and shedding-free.
Lighting has always been one of the most fun ways to update a room. Whether your style is classic, contemporary, modern or glam, Meadow Blu has the right pieces to inspire your home makeover! A stunning upgrade to your bedroom or entryway can be achieved almost instantly with new lighting. The Paige Double Vanity Sconce designed by Mitzi - Hudson Valley contains a slight allusion to the Bauhaus in the shape and color of its shades. Just as that famous school sought to merge form and function, the Paige sends warm light in numerous directions while making a strong visual impression. Designer Sabrina Vroeg (@sabrinavroeginteriors) captures it's simplicity and beauty in her powder room, showing us that a simple lighting update can make all the difference. Another surefire way to create a glamorous modern statement in your entryway, dining room or master bath is with a chandelier or pendant. Tabitha is a stunning chandelier that comes in multiple finishes and family styles. Caitlin Marie Design captures the beautiful ambient illumination that comes from 16 glass shades and an aged brass base.
Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. It should be your escape from a long day, a cozy place to relax with a good book or even the perfect place for breakfast in bed. We couldn't get enough of timeless beds, soft knits, subtle lighting and sleek furnishings in 2020 and we expect to see much of the same in 2021. We can't guarantee your dreams will come true, but at least we can help you dream in style. The Angela bed features glam design, channel tufting and gold legs that pop against the sumptuous velvet upholstery. It's classic and elegant, which makes it the perfect focal point for your bedroom. If you're more understated in your bed choices, taking a risk with a bench might be right up your alley. Be a trend setter with the Eileen Bench from Candelabra Home. Featuring elegant gold legs and lush button tufting, blending in will be a thing of the past. Whether you put this charming bench at the end of your bed, in your entryway, or living room it will definitely get noticed. Lastly, handcrafted bone-inlay mosaics give Noire Bone Inlay Side Table an undeniable sense of luxury. Add this piece to any room to crank up the glamour.
"The kitchen is the heart of the home." This year, those words took on a whole new meaning as we spent more time with our families than ever before. Gathered around the kitchen island, nestled in the nook of the breakfast table or trying out new recipes, the kitchen has always been the center point of togetherness. Nothing says 2020 Best Seller more than the Loom Collection. Super popular and more than worth the wait! The removable upholstered seat cushion and intricate rope weave design comes in several colors and the solid mahogany legs make these chairs and stools a timeless addition to your kitchen. Just as in other rooms of your house, a statement pendant over your island can drastically elevate the look of your kitchen. The Beehive Pendant from Selamat is our casual take on a formal chandelier. Natural strands of jute twist and wrap around a domed metal frame and the single bulb gives off a soft, subtle glow.
Many of us found ourselves working from home for the first time this year. Forming a functional office space does not mean you have to skimp on style. A chic étagère or open shelving is the perfect blank canvas. Stack books in interesting ways, top them with fun objects, and add woven baskets to hide clutter. The Riley desk from Alder & Tweed is function and style at it's finest. Crafted out of brushed smoke beechwood and featuring a large center drawer and open shelving, Riley is perfect for creating that intimate work space without giving up on design. Working from home can also feel fabulously glam. The Stella desk features a lacquer finish with brushed brass handles and foot caps. Productivity is about to become a whole lot more stylish.
Finally, let's not forget all the small touches that can make your house really feel like home. With it's reflective crystal body and matching finial, the Joan Table Lamp is a modern classic. The solid crystal silhouette and natural brass accents will add a bit of glamour to your home. Artwork is also a powerful way to spice up your home. Meant to describe the mood of the room it's featured in, there are no rules when it comes to art. Whether you feature a photograph like Rising by BLU ART or an abstract image, art is all about expressing a feeling or emotion.
No matter what 2020 brought into our lives, we can all safely say our homes became our refuge. We at Meadow Blu have loved being a part of your home and we can't wait to see what statement pieces 2021 brings into your ever evolving home!
