Summer Home Decor Ideas

Summer is the season that I decorate my home with colorful floral prints. In the past, I would design throw pillows and table coverings from my photographs but this year I have been creating lovely home décor from watercolor paintings of red poppy's, bachelor buttons and daisies.

I choose the red white and blue flowers because they will complement the upcoming 4th of July holiday and also the colors red yellow and blue complaint my homes color scheme.

The accent square pillows come in a variety of fabrics for indoor and outdoor use. Here are a few designs that feature the watercolor flowers.

Same flower print but with a dark blue background. This is also a 2-sided pillow. The backside is a solid blue.
Monogram Flower Pattern Throw Pillow

I also created a navy blue table runner with the hand-painted flower pattern. This table runner would compliment many rooms because of the variety of colors offered in the design. Know those table runners look good on a bedroom dresser, cocktail table, and foyer table. I have also used them on a trunk style coffee table.

Navy Blue Table Runner with Red and Yellow Flowers

Here is a wall clock that I created that will compliment the floral decorations. This clock is also a template so you can change the red background to another color.

My decorations for the 4th of July will be simple, a solid red or blue tablecloth with a colorful red, white and blue floral arrangement. Then I will add decorative flags to the arrangement along with star-shaped confetti. My kids like streamers so I will add a few to accent the dining room. Other than that I think these red white and blue with touches of green and yellow home décor pillow and table runners will compliment the patriotic holiday decorations.

Here is a holiday design I created by using products from my online store. The floral clock with the red border would work well with this color scheme.

Fall Season Decorations

Soon the fall season will be here and you will want to create a cozy living room for your family and friends to relax and unwind. When it comes to decorating for the fall season the colors orange, golden brown and burgundy are a few of my favorites because they make your space feel warm and inviting.

Decorate for the fall season by adding ambiance to your space. Shop for fall leaf printed pillows for your sofa, a rustic metal container with yellow mums, fall landscape poster for your wall.  These are just a few ways that you can decorate your space with for fall.

Know that the fall season can be rainy or cool so the family will be spending more time indoors. The throw pillows are great for the kids for watching TV or for sitting on the floor, a throw blanket is also a good idea draped over the sofa.

Accent the coffee table with an orange maple leaf pattern table runner, then add candles and a bowl of nuts. You may also want to add a board game or a puzzle.

St Patrick's Day Party Essentials

I grew up Irish-American which meant that we always celebrated St. Patrick's Day. My mother was first generation Irish in America and my grandparents came from Cork. My mother held onto her Irish heritage and prepared many Irish recipes throughout the year and always celebrated St. Patrick's Day with going to mass to be blessed, followed by an Irish breakfast, tea in the afternoon and the Irish-American corned beef and cabbage with all the sides in the evening.

St. Patrick's Day was a day of cooking, joke telling, dancing, and singing. A joyous time for wearing the green

My mother never decorated the house with green streamers, shamrock stickers or balloons. Instead, her decorations consisted of family photographs of her travels to her homeland and framed poster of Cork Ireland on the wall. The Irish party essentials were a green tablecloth, green classic paper plates, napkins, and mugs for Irish coffee.

Here are a few classic styled St Patrick’s Day table-setting products and mugs.

The most important thing for a party is to have aprons to protect your clothes, table-setting essentials including a platter for your corned beef and Irish music by the Clancy brothers.

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the traditional Irish-American dinner? Do you wear green color clothing?

Royal Blue and Gold Christmas Decor

Make a statement this year and decorate your Christmas tree and home with a royal blue and gold color scheme. The blue color represents the night sky and gold snowflake represents elegance.

Recently a customer contacted me and requested a royal blue and gold snowflake print on a round accent pillow, table runner, and ornament. She wanted a few accessories to accent her royal blue with gold living space where she had her Christmas tree. 

I created the blue and gold home accessories from a public domain photograph of a gold textured snowflake pin (jewelry). I layered the gold snowflake over the royal blue background. An additional layer was added to create white glitter. The white glitter represents the snow.

The royal blue and gold snowflake pattern home decor is popular this year and thought it would be good to create a home set to show my customers and followers on this blog how the home accessories compliment a blue color scheme Christmas space. I think the home set with blue and gold accents is beautiful. What do you think? Will you be decorating your home this year with a blue color scheme?

Christmas Poinsettia Decorations for Bathroom

When there are children in the home a bathroom that is decorated with Santa or Snowman sure looks cute but if your kids are grown or you are empty nesters you may desire poinsettia holiday prints that is festive and in good taste.
Bathroom accessories designed by Sgolis and made by

The poinsettia is the traditional flower of Christmas and blooms in a variety of colors; red, burgundy white and pink. The poinsettia bathroom accessories that I designed are burgundy flowers with dark green leaves and touches of white.

If your bathroom has a white theme this holiday print will look fabulous. Of course a cream or ivory will also be a lovely background color for the poinsettia pattern accessories.

When you decorate your bathroom with poinsettia pattern accessories; shower curtain, guest towels, soap and toothbrush holder and bath mat know that the color combination and pattern is one you can leave up until New Years Day because it is not the traditional Santa Claus print which should come down soon after Christmas Day.

Here are the poinsettia holiday products that I designed for the bathroom. If you are interested in viewing in high resolution at my store, click on the blue highlighted words.

Snowman Pattern Home Decor

This year I decided to decorate my home for the winter holidays with snowman pattern throw pillows and other decorative products. I have been collecting snowman pattern products over the years and would like to incorporate them into my Christmas scheme.

Many people will decorate their home with the classic scheme of red and green but I prefer a winter white or winter wonderland. I like adding fresh cut balsam branches on my mantle and fresh wreaths and swags on my doors and wall décor. Then I will add Jim Shore snowman figurines, candles, and ornaments on my Christmas tree. For my sofa, accent chairs and bedroom I will add snowman throw pillows, blankets and serving tray for dresser or coffee table. The trays are ideal for holding candles, perfume bottles or on the coffee table the TV remote, candy dish and more.
The winter wonderland theme with the snowman decor will make a holiday home feel warm and cozy. Here are a few snowman decorations that I designed at If you would like to see them in high resolution pleas click onto the blue text bellow the image.

Decorating Guest Bedroom for Christmas

This year I want to decorate my guest bedroom in red, green and white color scheme for the Christmas and the winter season. Since my husband and I enjoy nature and would like to add red holly berries, evergreen trees, pine cones and white to represent snow as my decorations for the guest bedroom.  I like the idea of winter decorations since I can leave them up after the Christmas season has ended.

Here is a Christmas bedroom set that I put together for one of my customers.  This set shows you how to decorate with a red and white color scheme.

One way to add Christmas to your bedroom is to buy a new bed ensemble or cover your bed with a solid color; red, green or white comforter that will complement your holiday color scheme. 

I shopped online at and found lovely quilt sets. Here is one I think will go well with my iron bed in the Victorian designed guest bedroom. This comforter has red berries, green balsam tree leaves on a white background. I really like this bed ensemble because of the pattern, I can leave it up throughout the winter season.

Accessorize the winter season bedroom by adding Christmas decorations. Set a mini Christmas tree for your nightstand or side table. Then instead of having a night light on you would light up the tree. The lights from the tree will create Christmas ambience.

Here is a lovely Christmas tree 


Accessorize your bed with throw pillows. I have 4 on my bed as they are needed to support a sore back or for a head support. Shop for a pattern that will go with your bed ensemble.  Here is a red accent pillow that I designed.  You may customize this pillow by adding your own graphics and words.

Christmas Bedroom Decor Ideas

When it comes to decorating for the Christmas season many people will accent their bedroom with touches of red and green. They may add a Christmas tree or cover their bed with a holiday quilt. It makes sense to me to decorate your bedroom since you spend an average of ten hours in this room each day. It is a good place to rest at the end of the day looking at the lights flickering on the holiday tree.

View this video for Christmas bedroom ideas.  Scroll to the bottom of this article for my Christmas bedroom design.

Know that you do not have to decorate every inch of your bedroom. The decorations for this room should be simple with touches of the holiday season here and there.

I recommend covering your bed with a solid cover comforter and pillow shams. A neutral color is best as this would be the backdrop for your holiday pattern pillows. You would also want your window treatments to one color, a contrast or color that would blend with room theme.

Here is a bedroom design that I created to show a customer how to decorate their bedroom for Christmas. The room color scheme is green, beige and gold. All of these colors are featured in the room accessories. Throw pillows, tapestry blanket throw, Venetian style wood wall art and the window decorations are lovely Christmas accessories that add coziness to the bedroom.

Do you decorate your bedroom for the Christmas season?  Here is a bedroom design that I created for one of my customers.  The red and green color scheme looks so pretty with the vintage white furniture.

Decorating Bedroom for Autumn Season

Whenever I see chrysanthemum flowers or the color orange I think of the autumn season. I love the autumn season because I enjoy decorating my home with the seasonal colors of orange, brown, gold and pomegranate. Even though it is summer I know that soon this season will be coming to an end and the autumn season will begin,

This year I will be decorating my guest bedroom with autumn colors. My brother will be coming to visit and think the bedroom will be cozier if I change out the color scheme and add assorted throw pillows and cover the bedside table with a seasonal tablecloth. The fall colors are warm and earthy and will make the bedroom feel cozy and welcoming.
Here is a modern autumn bedroom that I designed that will show you how to decorate your bedroom for the autumn season.

Here are a few products that were used in this autumn bedroom set.

When it comes to decorating the bedroom or living areas for the autumn season I like to cover the nightstand or coffee table with a tablecloth. When you cover the furniture you protect them from damage and you add color and interest to your room I found this watercolor landscape with autumn tree leaves tablecloth online and think it would be perfect for covering a bedroom nightstand. (see this tablecloth in Bedroom image above)

Autumn Leaves on Trees Tablecloth

My bedroom has hardwood floors I think the room would look cozy and feel warm with an area rug with autumn season colors. I added this to my list and will shop online for this seasonal product. Do you decorate your home and bedroom for the autumn season?
