As an Independent business that has been in Westborough for 33 years, We love the Merchant. Large corporations are never the merchant. This holds true even in a corporate store… In the Trader Joe’s I shop in frequently in Union Square of Manhattan, There is one woman who is the merchant, manager, entrepreneur and face of the store. While Trade Joe’s is the store she is the Merchant of that store. We Welcome having a business that is privately owned with the support of a company like Ace to be competitive!

The building has been renovated. It is a great location to the downtown village of Westborough. Check out the great use of color with the Adirondack Chairs in bright colors.(are they wood? or a faux..they look great regardless)Great Visual like Furniture Brand Maine Cottage Furniture! Color is power is message! Love the upscale clean design of the facade.

As a business that was a long time customer of Village Lumber. We wish Westborough Ace Hardware tremendous success! A new hardware store is always a great for last minute screws, fasteners for our custom window treatment Installations!

Decor Design Forecast & Trend Report Spring & Summer 2014

1. What do you recommend to help freshen up a client’s home for the warmer months?
2. What are the 2014 spring home decorating trends?
3. For clients putting homes on the spring real estate market: what is the best way to add value to their homes without breaking the bank?

There are our Spring 2014 Design Trend Forecasts: We were asked these question for the Community advocate Newspaper Spring Home Improvement Sections!

2014 Trends –
Individualized interiors/personalization – meaning that most consumers want their home to not only look great but to reflect memories, family, and tradition. In terms of color: pantone’s radiant orchid was selected as a color of the year. Shades of gray make for great complementary color combinations of this soft color family. Turquoise is seen more in design publications and showroom – the culmination of blues and greens are popular.
Summer:
The line between inside and outside spaces blurs more and more as fabrics become water resistant and weather-proof providing many more color and pattern options.  Shades for sunlights can be great for energy efficiency, keeping spaces naturally cooler, preventing fading from fabrics and reducing glares.
Our advice is to mix accents with trends that you like to update a look. This can be done through accessories such as decorative pillows, throws, fabrics, artwork, etc. The key is to retain your own personal style and a room that you love while adding small accents that create a unified look and bring an updated feel.

 

Adding value to homes on the market:
A new coat of paint in a modern neutral palette is an inexpensive way to give a clean look so that buyers can envision their own ideas in the space. Most buyers change colors and decor to their own preferences, so making design improvements that emphasize the best features of the space add the most value.
