Champagne: Hardware Color of the Month

Let’s toast this season’s hottest hardware color, champagne!  Blurring the lines between yellow and rose gold, this hue stands out in more matte finishes offering a sublte alternative to its typically shiny finish.

The lovely metallic offers the perfect compliment to the kithen or bath especially when paired grey, blue, black or white cabinets.


The Jigsaw designers have always had a fondness for gold finishes. But this one we are really embracing.  We suggest a bold statement piece like Jonathan Adler’s Sputnik chandelier to wow your visitors.  Perfect for the entry, dining room, bed or bath this mid-century throw-back is a stunner.

If you’d like something a bit more streamline, then nothing softens a space like the perfectly lit wall sconce.  West Elm’s Glass Cyliner Sconce in Champagne luster has a beautiful finish in a minimal design…this style is also available as a pendant lamp.

Furthermore, metallic tile is a trend on the rise.  This fun peel and stick champagne tile is a great options for an apartment or office where making a permanant change is not an option.

Pop the champagne and just go all the way with a room layered in the hue from trims, fabrics, wallpaper and hardware.

Winter Wonderland-Blush and White Christmas Decor


Nothings beats winter white decor at Christmas time.  It’s so pretty and pure.  This Christmas white gets a little update with the softest touch of blush.


Compliment your snow colored spaces with fun decorations and baubles in soft pinks mixed with creams, silver and gold together.  These colors blend beautifully and bounce twinkly light for a shimmering snow effect.



From West Elm to Coco Chanel, the color of blush is in the air.  Perfect for city or the beach the look is fresh and light hearted.



Pair your white and blush decor with chandeliers and floral swags to create a look that fits your style.  Go glamazon with multiple white chandeliers for the ultimate lighting for your dinner party…we love the personal sheepskin for each guest’s comfort in the image below.


Your table can be pretty as a petal with blush dinnerware, gold flatwear and dusty roses weaved throughout the space.



Finally the details.  The Jigsaw Designers love wallpaper, so why not use that left over paper for your gift wrapping.  Add a hint of pink, cream, gold or silver ribbon and your look is complete.

For the Love of Lacquer

black laq console

High gloss Lacquer has made a big come back, and it’s not the lacquer of the 80’s, too often paired with a Nagel print.  No, this lacquer trend is bold and fresh with style that will be shining on for quite some time.

Red laq buffet

Furniture designer Jonathan Adler has this market segment pegged with an enormous collection of lacquer pieces to choose from.  He uses bold colors that pop the gloss to hi-def proportions and compliments each style with bold hardware options in brass or nickel.  We love his Turner Cabinet with it’s modern take mixed with chinoiserie flair.  This style would make a perfect console or buffet for your dining room that would wow your guests.

Brighten up your dining experience by adding a lacquer table into the mix.  Whether your style is modern, transitional or hollywood regency you simply can’t go wrong with the striking look of a white or black high gloss dining table.  While perfectly reflecting twinkling candle light your lacquer table will be a definite conversation starter.

Really ramp up this look with lacquer wall paint.  This ultimate brave move will work perfectly in a special common area like the dining room or a study.

If the love of lacquer is new to you,  then a safe starting place for this bold look is the bedroom, of course.  Start small with a pair of bedside tables like the West Elm white lacquer nightstand in the following image.  Really feeling the love of lacquer? Well, go big in kelly green with this delightful dresser from Room Service with perfectly paired gold hardware.

Touches of lacquer can mix into almost any style of home in some way.  The glossy finish adds that perfect extra layer of texture.  Play up the look with fun accessories.  Lacquer trays for tidying your kitchy goodies,  a bar tray, or even bath accessories are all quick and relatively inexpensive ways to get the trend while it’s hot.

Faux Antlers

Animal antlers are not just for hunting lodges anymore.  They are also for those who seek a little whimsy in their décor.  The longevity of this trend in displaying faux and real animal horns and antlers is definitely one that’s up for debate.  Nonetheless, these interesting little oddities are simply…cool.  Antlers and horns can be found in a variety of styles and materials; solid white ceramic, printed paper mache’, chrome and of course the real thing.

The Jigsaw Designers love the look of horns and antlers mixed into a modern space with clean lines.  Get this look by placing a single pair of antlers or several pair on a solid brightly painted wall for a fun and modern look.   The antlers in any style can bring an element of surprise to almost any room.  We also recommend using a statement color antler with exaggerated features as a focal point in a living or dining room, possibly above the fire place for a quirky conversation piece.

Below are a few of our favorites.  These interesting creatures are quite easy to find on-line.  Some of the best styles we have found can be purchased in custom colors on Etsy.  Others are available on-line at West Elm, Restoration Hardware and a variety of other on-line venues.
