The idea of home is complicated, if anything. When we think of our homes, each member of our team has a different thought, from our favorite throw pillows to family heirlooms on display, some even say that their pets are what makes their house a true home. In interior design, we’re often asked how we make a space truly feel like home. Is it the wall color? Do we use a certain style of furniture? To all of that we say no. While the color on your walls can effect your mood, and the furniture in your living room plays a very special role, those design elements don’t define a person’s home. To our team, it’s all in the details. And to the team at GO Home, it’s all about the thoughtful details and accessories that bring a space together and make it feel wonderfully lived-in.
GO Home takes the term ‘accessorize’ very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that their team calls it their mantra, and relied on it to create GO Home, an accessories business. Derived from a family-operated business called Golden Oldies, GO Home’s foundation is the importance of the home. In the team’s words, “We talked about the importance of the home, creature comforts, things that made us feel safe that didn’t have to cost a fortune.” It doesn’t matter if your style is monochromatic and super modern, or very traditional, down to the details. What unites all of our homes is our desire for the warmth and hearth created by a living space that feels ‘us’.
For that very reason, we are so happy to have a vendor like GO Home to refer to when recreating that cozy, special space for our clients. To celebrate their brand and our favorite accessories, we’re spotlighting a few of our favorite collections of theirs and how we’re using them this season.
Equal parts rustic and glam, GO Home’s Country Chic collection has something for everyone who can’t decide between Wranglers and Ray Bans. This look is subtle and sweet, lending a uniquely elegant vibe to any space. By combining rustic wood furnishings with polished metallic accents, the line of Country Chic accessories can glisten and glow in any living space or master bedroom. The Orleans Decanter, a beautifully angled glass accessory, would look polished and pretty atop a rustic bar cart with iron accents and a pair of modern wine glasses. The Needle Table is the perfect answer to tight spaces or apartment living as its able to tuck into the coziest of corners– perfect for perching the previously mentioned wine glasses (once filled, of course). The Palermo Wine Cooler, a sleek marble encasing for your favorite vino, pairs well alongside any woodsy element, adding poise and polish to wherever its placed. Finish up your rustic glam bar scene with the Lindon Tray and Knife Set, the perfect place setting for your favorite cheeses and jams.
For those of us looking to set a regal scene, GO Home’s Kensington collection has the glimmering details to get you started. Full of robust tables and surfaces, architecturally inspired silhouettes, and shimmering sheens, the Kensington collection has no shortage of glamorous yet functional pieces to round out a princess-like room, or lay the foundation for a truly aristocratic space. The Hopkins Nesting Tables are perfect for hosting parties as they tuck into each other and can be easily maneuvered to make room for all of your glamorous guests and their elegant cocktails. The Berkshire Shelving Unit is part fashion and function, offering the illusion of floating shelves with pretty architectural details. The Selvedge Sideboard is a showstopper with mirror-front doors and a simple body, a key piece for hiding stemware and serving trays between soirees. Is your entry way in need of some glitz? Try the Noble Marble Top Console. It’s sleek and angular pedestal add visual interest, while the marble surface brings subtle luster to the space, giving your entryway a boost of sparkle and shine.
Who says a vacation home doesn’t need extra love? When thinking of all of the places that make us feel warm and fuzzy inside, a fully-stocked and accessorized vacation home definitely ranks up top. Whether your ideal space is in a small Tuscan village or on a Hawaiian beach surrounded by crashing waves, a place to recharge your batteries is super important, and so is your vacation home’s style. The Tuscan Villa collection from GO Home embodies such style with ornate accessories, relaxed furnishings, and just enough color to brighten up the coolest of cabins. The Vineyard Dining Table is perfectly sized to perch near a window, perhaps overlooking a vineyard in Napa Valley. It’s vintage markings and reclaimed style offer an air of relaxation while nailhead trim adds visual interest to this sizeable piece. What’s a vacation home without vino? Go Home’s Grande Wine Rack is great for stowing your favorite sips and is made of a hearty iron material and natural black finish that blends into any home’s style. Everyone knows accessories make the design, so why not add this super simple yet sophisticated Spencer Tray to the mix? Ideal for setting down cold drinks, or just as a piece of decor, this iron and wood tray offers a touch of masculinity without retracting from the room’s overall style. Last but not least, dine in style with GO Home’s wood bowls. Their subtly rustic look and feel will have vacationers oohing and aahing over your eye for design.
Between their thoughtfully crafted bar-carts, beautifully lived-in coffee tables, and plush seating offering, we can’t help but dream up all of the ways we’ll be using GO Home products in our projects and own homes, too! Don’t these artfully curated pieces make you want to GO Home?
