In Our Community: Camp Grace + Blueprint 58










Earlier this summer, Accent Decor partnered with Blueprint58  to get kids off the hot pavement - playing on the grass, swimming and looking at the stars. 





Becca, from Blueprint58 says, " Most of the kids who come bring only one or two changes of clothes. Some don't have toothpaste, soap or bedding. Many of them exhibit a hardness when they first get there that tends to wear down over the course of the week. Those who fight the hardest and curse the most tend to be the ones most heartbroken to leave. I wish I could do a better job describing how precious it is to be a part of that moment when they grin and run into a hug, especially when earlier in the week they are determined to be tough and prove that they don't need anyone..."


Accent Decor is proud to have sponsored 38 kids for this year's Camp Grace in addition to providing a variety of toiletries and supplies for their stay.

The Trend: Calexico



The Mood

California Cool meets the heart of Mexican culture. The mood is relaxed and beautiful, completely sun-soaked spaces that make you feel as though you've come in from the heat for a cool glass of water.

Think weathered and woven, serene and laid back. A whitewashed paradise. Welcome to a lifestyle where you're surrounded by handcrafted art, beautiful light, and can move at pace that rejuvenates. This story stays away from being too modern -- it is slightly messy with a focus on the materiality of the beautiful handmade objects in it. In this space lives the lifestyle of a laid-back yet sophisticated person who reminds us that a balance of good work and tranquility is possible. Imagine a sophisticated surfer living in this space.

White-washed cabana like wood structures are featured and create shade and shadows from hot light about them. The shadows in this story will make you feel like you are wandering with your feet in the sand.


The Colors & Vessels



Earthy tones with a mix of pale shades and pops of surprising colors [jackie & kelso]. The colors evoke the relaxed and chill feel of the overall collection. The muted tones of the terracotta [muriel & revolt] couple well with the natural rattan [pintado & rumba] and ceramic [hari] pieces. 




The Showroom

As you stroll through Calexico you feel as if you've walked into a sophisticated surfer's living room. Black and white travel photos hang on the white washed shiplap walls as ropes hang terracotta pots from up high. There's a laid back California feel to this tale with Mexican influences. You're welcomed to a lifestyle where you're surrounded by handcrafted art, beautiful light and can move at a pace that rejuvenates.




The Flowers
The flower choices for this story continue to convey the Cali/Mex aesthetic. Layers of Yucca and high desert florals like King Protea, Pin Cushions and Cockscomb paired with Dahlias and a multitude of cacti. The hanging planters feature Senecio plants and Burrow's Tail dangling from their pots. Plenty of succulents popping from terrariums amid Poppies, Zinnia, Mexican flowers and much more.

Shop the Trend: Calexico

Our Calexico trend is all about a relaxed effortless feel. We imagine a sophisticated surfer who has traveled the world and collected mementoes along the way.

Weathered and woven, our Hacienda collection offers a variety of planting opportunities with an assortment of shapes and sizes.

The Qdoba pot & bowl series play on the current two-toned trend coupling a natural bisque ceramic with a bronze glaze finish.







The Lockwood and Wren macrame hangers can hold a wide range of pot sizes. (Holding plants in our Polly bowl and Demi pot below)


The Demi pot showcases a sun-faded blue glaze with a stamped print on its terracotta surface.  



Much like the Qdoba collection, the Polly bowls and vases feature a two-toned natural bisque glaze paired with a shiny robin's egg blue finish.

The Jeva pots and planters are made of polyfiber making them incredibly lightweight and good for indoor or outdoor use.

Shop the Trend: Elusive Dynasty

Within the lavish aura of Elusive Dynasty, the products are an additional layer to the intricacies and details of the trend. Each with their own look and feel, both in presence and texture, the vessels have their own story to tell. 
---

The Script budvase looks as if it's an artifact from a different time. Hints of cobalt peek from behind the bronze glaze giving an etched effect. 


The iron Mabel has always been a fan favorite with its versatile shapes and sizes. Whether grouped together or separate there's a plethora of options for a wide range of arrangements.


The facets of the Matrix lanterns add curiosity to lighting. The brushed gold detail on the Levee vase adds mystery and texture to an arrangement. 

The jade finish on the mercury glass of the Suncoo creates an unexpected pop of color. The metallic elements of the Zola adds focus to this popular trend.


The Eleanor collection is filled with budvases, vases and pots all hand-painted porcelain pieces each with their own personality and flair.




Many thanks from Frank & Margaret
