Make Work Time Family Time

With the kiddos back in school, you’re back into the swing of things. Is your home equipped to accommodate your busy work schedule and homework time? HW Home has you covered with the work-at-home essentials to turn those busy evenings into family time. We can create a warm room that welcomes and sparks the imagination. Let’s begin with some basic pieces and design elements.


The key to a successful joint work session with the kids (besides the obvious: chicken fingers and crayons) is to provide ample space to complete essential job tasks without sacrificing a comfortable homework nook for the little ones. Splitting your office or living area into sections allows for personal space and the freedom to spread out. If you feel overwhelmed about how to get started, check out our “Homework Corners” Pinterest board for some inspiration.


When you find the ideal design, dive in by choosing a desk. Every family-friendly work space begins with a great desk to inspire your little ones to achieve educational greatness. Our Drop Front Desk Classic exhibits an air of confidence and a casual touch of glamour. Its sturdy build makes it perfect for wear and tear of a little one. Vibrant colors and patterns will be a hit with the children and will complement your own eclectic style. These striking Lyon Arm Chairs are comfortable and pair flawlessly with a variety of our desks.


Now that your room is decorated perfectly it’s time to get organized!


If you’re turning a multipurpose room into a joint workspace for the whole family, you definitely need to consider storage. HW Home has a range of size and style options to blend seamlessly with your home’s current interior. If you’re looking for a more child-friendly option, try our Tic-Tac-Toe Bookcase. Its whimsical nature will appeal to the kids  and it’s a convenient spot to store all your work/life essentials. Baskets are another great method for storing art supplies, papers, and homework necessities. Putting things away after the family has completed work for the evening will provide the kids with a sense of accomplishment and responsibility.


No matter where you choose to create your family-friendly work spaces, HW Home can select home decor staples that best suit your needs. If you need additional assistance, please visit one of our stores and we are glad to assist.

First Impressions: Your Home’s Entryway


Your entryway sets the tone for your unique design style and is the first thing guests see when they come into your home. So we recommend you you put time and thought into that first impression.


When designing your entryway, plan it out strategically. Because most entryways have size restrictions, first measure your space to ensure any furniture  fits while still allowing guests to move easily into your other living area. If you’re at a loss as to how you’d like to decorate your space, search our “Entryway” Pinterest board for inspiration.

Even with a limited area, you can still accommodate your guests. When decorating a small space, it’s best to choose your largest piece first.  We suggest one of our many stylish benches; these comfortable pieces give visitors a place to sit while they take off their shoes or chat before leaving. One of our standout benches is our Erin Leather Bench; boasts a tufted seat cushion and two accompanying arm bosters in liberty espresso leather to deliver a ruggedly rustic piece.

If your focus is storage over seating, our Smoke and Mirrors Console, with imported mirrored door fronts from Italy and bronze-finished metal on the base and door grille, is sure to generate a conversation in your home.


No entryway is complete without a statement chandelier, and our large selection of eclectic lighting will make it difficult for you to choose just one. When selecting a mirror or two for your entryway, keep in mind that mirrors naturally add the illusion of space to an area. So consider placing the mirror on the opposite wall of windows or doors. Don’t be afraid to mix and match styles and shapes; consider pairing this Drum Mirror with modern art or family photos.


Whether you have carpet or wood flooring, you’ll absolutely need a rug to keep the dirt and grime off your floors. And why not do it in style? Our expansive collection of floor coverings adds a pop of color to your entryway while expressing your home’s decorative voice.


No matter the size or style of your entryway, HW Home has everything you need to elevate your space. Stop into one of our stores today to take advantage of our Summer Tag Sale and chat with one of our HW Home team members.

Cocktail Party for Summer

After a long day at the office, there’s nothing as relaxing as a cool, summer beverage in your own home. And although we at HW Home love our happy hour outings, we understand the importance of creating a space that’s conducive to hosting your own backyard cocktail party.


First things, first: the cocktails! If you’re planning a casual event, it’s not necessary to do a ton of planning ahead, but it is imperative to have a variety of drink options on hand. For sultry summer evenings, we suggest you keep it simple and fresh.


Pro-tip:Always make sure you know how to create the mocktail version of your drinks.


If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you know we’re obsessed with rosé; this crisp, affordable wine is perfect to add to cocktails or enjoy by itself. Try a delightful watermelon rosé margarita paired with delectable pesto grilled shrimp. Or, if you’re feeling a little adventurous, enjoy a rosé sangria with bacon-kale-ricotta mini-sammies! Food always helps bring life to your cocktails, so when choosing a menu, make sure to take your drinks into consideration.


Be sure you explore our Pinterest page for additional options.


Since SOLO cups and paper napkins aren’t really our style (not that there’s anything wrong with them!), we set our tables and outdoor spaces with fresh flowers and bright, crisp linens to make our guests feel at ease. After you’ve set your table, it’s time to decorate, using our signature Marble Petal BowlsBanana Leaf Trays, and Ruby Guava martini glasses.


Nothing shows your guests how much you appreciate their company like a well-thought-out cocktail party paired with a beautiful outdoor setting. After you’ve styled your table, take a step back to see if you’ve missed any design elements, if anything is out of place, or if guests may have difficulty reaching the drinks or food. Everything should be easily accessible, elegantly chosen, and speak to the theme of the party.  

No matter what type of backyard summer party you’re planning, HW Home is happy to turn your bubbly visions into a reality. And don’t forget, our Summer Tag Sale is happening right now! Stop by one of our stores to take a look around and chat with our design team.

Las Vegas Market Recap 2016

Two weeks ago, our team made the trip out to Las Vegas for the twice-yearly furniture market. It may seem odd to mix a professional trip with a city full of vacationers, but I absolutely loved the palpable excitement and energy throughout the city. This was also my first time visiting Las Vegas (shocking, I know), so I was on sensory overload.
