Behind the Scenese: All Hands on Deck


Photo via KFHU News

As you may well know, Atlanta, GA, and it's surrounding areas were hit this week with harsh winter storms that have unfortunately disabled the city's modes of transportation.
Accent Decor's warehouse is located within these areas, and was closed yesterday, for the safety of our employees.


Today we are back in operation, but not to full capacity, as many employees are still not able to safely leave their neighborhoods.



We do have all hands on deck, and are working as fast as possible to get your shipments out to you.



You are our priority.



If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at custserv@accentdecor.com.

Please see our Facebook page for any further updates.

Cheers,

What's New: It's Here!

We are so excited to have the print and online copies of our brand new 2014 catalog finally in circulation! The suspense has been too much to keep to ourselves! If you do not receive your copy by the end of this week, please contact our Customer Service department (custserv [at] accentdecor [dot] come) to get your copy shipped right away.

It is such joy to see the culmination of hard work (on so many fronts) come together, and able to be enjoyed by all of our friends and customers. The 2014 catalog is new and exciting to us, and we hope that it is the same for you! All 320 pages. Phew!

Though these products are beautiful enough to speak for themselves, we also know that it is fun to get creative, get inspired, and demonstrate exciting ways to use pieces both new and old. Over the past year or so, we executed many new location shoots (photography by Rebecca Stanley) around the Atlanta area, to accomplish this goal. We worked with some amazing people, gorgeous locations, and fun props to really allow our collections to shine. We hope you enjoy these fun additions!

SPECIAL THANK YOU
As mentioned above, we're so grateful for the amazing people that we were able to work with, who assisted in making these new photoshoots come to life. The final product just wouldn't have been the same, without the talent and generosity of the following people:

Rebecca Stanley | Photographer
Chris Lawery | Photographer
Rob Pattell | Designer
Els Teunissen | Designer
Amy Osaba | Designer
James Hurley | Designer
Ginny Branch | Stylist
Faith Flowers | Location + Designer 
The Goat Farm | Location
King Plow | Location
Bold American | Events





Cheers,

What's New: Color of the Year

Have you heard the news? Pantone has officially released their Color of the Year for 2014. You can read more about the release here.

What is the color of the year, you may ask? For over a decade now, Pantone has released their Color of the Year as a peek into the future in terms of color trends. This year, the color is described as,  “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

In our industries, many of us are all too familiar with the power of color in our daily lives. We get excited by the vibrant tones of a fresh pink peony, we are moved by the elegant hughes of a calla lily. Colors inspire emotion, they spark inspiration, and they drum up associations that move us to think, feel, and create.   

What do you think about this years' Color of the Year choice? How does it move you?

You can read more about why Radiant Orchid was chosen this year, here. You can also see a few products here at Accent Decor that embrace the spirit of the Color of the Year.

Happy Friday!
