Home is Where the Heart Is

Category: ,

We all know the saying, “home is where the heart is.” But during the dead of winter when we’re stuck inside, our hearts grow tired and weary. It’s Ohio, we know what to expect and we also know it won’t be long before sips of sunshine are beaming through our windows each day. Maybe that’s why February and March seem the hardest months to endure. Connell’s to the rescue! Allow your  heart to sing again with design ideas to turn home time into a glorious time!

1. Because homes are designed to be functional, think about this during seasonal changes. The beauty of furniture is that it can be moved. Do it! Arrange a family game space. Pick one room and redecorate, creating a haven for friends and family to gather.  Think outside the box (room) and move a sofa from one room into another. Change or rearrange art, photographs, even televisions and home entertainment systems. Pick your most comfortable furniture and group it together into a “conversation pit”. Swap lighting and center a table in the pit for optimal board game madness. Bring on Banangrams and Pictionary. Move the home entertainment area for the best views of Scene It. Let the games begin.

2. Pick a day each week for culinary exploration. Cook up a storm around a chosen theme. Welcome Friday Family Fiestas! Make tacos, enchiladas, burritos, sopapillas, guacamole, refried beans, spanish rice and salsa. Try your hand at fried ice cream. Be amazed at your success and laugh at your culinary misfortunes. Either way, it’s time well spent with family while learning something new!

3. You don’t have to wait for spring to see signs of life. Green sprouts and flower buds await when you start an indoor garden. Pick the sunniest room of your home and clear it out. Either buy new plants or bring existing ones into the room together. Buy seed packets for your vegetables this year and plant them in your garden room. Read directions, research the internet and await patiently. Arrange a small seating area for  a quiet place to sit and reflect. Know that spring is just around the corner.

4. Rearrange your bedroom or your child’s bedroom. Add color where it was absent, or soften a currently bold look. Pull antique quilts out of storage or buy a comforter for a brand new look. While you’re rearranging furniture, move a chair, loveseat and/or end table into the room for a sitting space. Spend quiet Saturday mornings reading the newspaper or catching up on emails in your newly created space.

Be spontaneous. Be creative. Find ways to reinvent each room in your home. Stop by one of the two Connell’s locations in Mt. Vernon and Newark for more home design ideas. Before you know it, Spring will be here and you’ll be outside again enjoying the beautiful sunshine!

Making a Large Room Feel Cozy

Recently, architectural trends have moved toward large, open spaces versus the quaint rooms of yesterday. However, many people feel challenged by making these spaces feel cozy. It isn’t as daunting as it seems if you follow a few simple design rules. Use the following ideas to start designing a large, cozy room.

Divide the space into zones. Group furniture together in different areas of the room. Arrange a media center for viewing television and listening to music while making a second location into a conversation pit. If the room is large enough, it could also serve as an office, exercise room or craft area. Use bookshelves back-to-back to block the view from one section to the next.

Install built-in furniture. Having a large room allows you to install built-ins such as floor-to-ceiling shelving for a home library and benches for a reading nook. These areas take up floor space and make the room feel quaint and cozy.

Buy overstuffed furniture for your conversation pit. One or two large pieces are enough to achieve the desired effect. Avoid placing furniture directly against the wall. Get creative. Use area rugs to tie individual spaces together. Large wall hangings and plants also create a warm, cozy atmosphere.

Avoid mirrors and glass top furniture which gives the room a sense of spaciousness. Opt instead for dark, rich tones and woodwork, creating a warm, intimate feeling.

Use bold, vibrant colors. Paint the entire room or a few walls a rich bright color, drawing the eye into the space. Complement the wall color by hanging a large tapestry. Add baskets, pottery and large accent pillows to complete the desired look and feel.

Stop in to one of the two Connell’s locations in Mt. Vernon or Newark and talk to a sales associate about these and other ideas to make your home feel intimate and comfortable.

We’re not Fortune Tellers … But we can Guarantee Furniture you’ll Love

Category: ,

At Connell’s Furniture and Mattresses, we do a lot of things really well. For instance, we can help you design the living room of your dreams, we can find a sofa to match your drapes and we can certainly tell you exactly when your furniture will arrive at your house. You might think we can do it all … but there’s one service we don’t offer. And that’s fortunetelling.

You see, we can’t always look into the future and guarantee your new furniture will always work for you. We’ve seen it all – you buy the sofa you love but your mother-in law hates it, or your new dining room set arrives at your doorstep but you’ve suddenly been transferred to a different city for work.

But because of our No Oops™ policy, we can predict you’ll never get stuck with furniture that you don’t love. It’s our guarantee to you, and it protects you from life’s little surprises. 

NO OOPS™ means that if you don’t like your new furniture for any reason, we’ll take it back – no questions asked! Plus unlike the other stores, you’ll never pay additional shipping charges, you’ll never pay restocking or usage fees and you can cancel your order at any time.

No one else offers you the protection and peace of mind you’ll find with No Oops™. Visit our elegant showrooms in either Mount Vernon or Newark, Ohio, and browse our huge selection of living room, dining room, bedroom, home office, home entertainment, mattresses, bedding and kids furniture. We guarantee when do, you won’t make a mistake!
