Southern Traditions

Nothing says “Welcome Y’all” quite like having beautiful Rockers lining your home and a swing hanging at the far end of your porch. Add a few Outdoor accent pillows and you easily have Southern perfection at its finest.  As spring approaches, Southerners tend to gravitate to their outdoor living spaces. More specifically, their porches, where for years, families and friends have gathered together to enjoy each other’s company. It’s also known to be a place that iced tea and good conversations are plentiful. It’s hard to imagine any southern porch without its main staples, Rocking Chairs and Porch Swings. 


                                 
     

Most wooden rockers and swings tend to last only a handful of years before they need to be sanded and repainted. They’re not made to withstand rain for a long period of time which can result in moisture affecting the integrity of the wood, ultimately shortening the life of your Rockers and Swings to only a few years before needing to be replaced.

        

Augustus and Carolina offers Rockers and Swings that can endure all types of weather. From the Florida sun to the Mountain snow, our resin products can withstand whatever mother nature throws its way. 

Our Rockers and Swings offer the following advantages:

  • Never has to be repainted. EVER.
  • Has a built in UV protectant.
  • Product will not crack or split like regular wood.
  • 20 Year Warranty on frame. 5 years on Woven Resin Inserts.

Providing the longevity and numerous design options available, our rockers and porch swings are a must have for creating that familiar feeling of “Home” that we all love so much; and what better way to say, “Y’all be sure to come back for a visit!”

Pattern Play With Pillows

As the seasons change, we often have the desire to revamp the space inside our home. The transition from summer to fall lends itself to incorporating more textiles for a cozier vibe. Fall makes you think of chunky knits, furs, wool and the like. Take a look at your upholstery as a starting point for transformation. What colors, prints, and motifs can you layer into the existing color scheme of your living space? 

Throw pillows are the way to go. Pillows can change the overall image and appeal of your living areas, and require zero heavy lifting! It's all about creating texture, and layering. 

When it comes to pairing your pillows, stay within the same color family and mix prints, or accent your current decor with a contrasting pop of color. Vary the scale of prints for a fun and personalized setting. This goes for your outdoor living space too!

Winning formulas to try:

1 geometric print + 1 solid color + 1 pattern

1 large scale pattern + 1 geometric + 1 small scale pattern

Pillows are not a less-is-more category. The more the merrier!

Oriental Rugs, Reimagined

The newest destination for an oriental rug is the kitchen! The kitchen is hands-down the most-used room in the home (not to mention your loved ones' favorite!). Oriental runners are lining the most stylish of kitchen runways these days, adding a pop of pattern, interest, and intrigue. Nothing like the warmth and vibrancy of an oriental rug to accent your kitchen and make it feel more like home. 

Antique oriental rugs stand the test of time and are extremely durable. They make a great choice for a high traffic area like the kitchen. And don't worry about those spills - they're easily removed with a damp cloth. 

Things to look for in an oriental rug:

  • Antique rugs acquire a gorgeous patina with age - this is a characteristic of vegetable dye
  • Hand-knotted rugs are considered to be the better choice, and an important determinant of quality - hand-knotted rugs are made completely by hand 
  • Oriental rugs made of wool are of the highest quality + durability
  • Pigmentation: pastels are just as exquisite as brights; the level of color is up to you!

Make sure those kitchen floors of yours aren't being ignored! Inspiration, below!

Dining Room Mash Up

The dining room has met its ultimate match: mix and match, that is. Mix and match seating is a fun, quirky design that can help you optimize your accommodations and even add extra spots around your table.

Start by bringing together different styles of chairs, and then add space-saving benches or settees into the mix once you’ve got the hang of it. The secret to achieving harmony is this: pair off-balance pieces of similar material, finish, style, or design, and you will master the art of the mismatch. If you’d like to maintain symmetry, try a large upholstered armchair at either end of your table for the host and hostess, and either armless chairs or a pair of benches on opposite sides.

Happy hosting!
