Accessories Make The Home Giveaway

Standard

A lot of people spend a lot of time trying to make their homes look like others. They take time building Pinterest Boards, Scrapbooking Home Decor ideas, or collecting pictures from magazines so they can duplicate a look. Although I’m all about finding your inspiration from all over, I’m under the opinion that you should make your home yours. So the following are a few tips you can do to help make your place unique, and all you!

Color!

Bellini Red Pillow

Don’t be shy ‚ÄĒ¬†You¬†can make a huge statement with the right hue! You don’t have to go all out and paint your walls a neon green, you can add splashes of color just by¬†bringing in the right accessory! Bring in a splash with an accent pillow, lamp, or large coffee table book!

Quick Tip: All the pictures in this post are¬†shopable! Take some time to find a piece that will make your room say “welcome”.



Art!


Paint Coast Canvas You¬†don’t have to be wealthy to enjoy a little photography or post modern appropriation. You can find tons of art in your every day life to make it your own. You can add a little spark of inspiration from a¬†painting,¬†sculpture, personal¬†photography, and other types of ¬†visual media. The key to this piece of art you are going to display is make it represent you, your interests, or your life. When people see art in your home they will associate the piece with you and what your personal aspirations or interests are. Choose wisely my friends!



Integrate!Starfish on Stands

Integrate your hobbies and recreation into your decor! Do you like long walks on the beach, hiking your local Everest, or collecting things? Show it off! It doesn’t mean you have to literally build a shadowbox and show off your passion, but you can find items that will show off your love for “your thing”. Just keep one very important rule in mind, less is more! Keep it clean and classy, otherwise it just comes off cluttered and busy!



Your Memories!
Paris Framed Wall ArtDisplay items that remind you of the places you have been and the memories you have made with your friends and/or family! Did you travel to Europe, a seaside vista, or a vineyard? You can find a way to keep those memories alive by adding a piece of that visit in your home. You don’t want to go overboard and make a “Paris” room, because lets face it, it just becomes overkill. Add your memories but adding a simple collage of items under the glass of your coffee table, a picture displaying that “special moment” in the room, or an accent pillow with a unique picture or pattern that represent the trip you took!

Your History!
Simplicity Curio
Display meaningful heirlooms in your bookcases or on tabletops! You can always add in a few important pictures to tell a story about the items you have selected to display. Books and unique objects are always great items to display. Keep in mind you want to have a theme to a display and not fill it with random accessories just to fill it up. Easy themes are Family, Travel, Passions, Hobbies, Collections, or Discovery.


Now comes your opportunity to go shopping for some Home Decor fun! Thanks to Raymour & Flanigan and A Geeks Perspective you can enter for a chance at a $500 Giftcard to make your home your own!

Furniture Shopping With A Geek & A $500 Giveaway!!!

Standard

ConfusedIn this day and age, shopping for furniture isn’t what it used to be. The shopping experience has to be better than “build it yourself” options; and must offer quality that doesn’t require you to drive 12 hours to “furniture country” to save a few bucks. On top of the quest to find the right type of quality furniture, you also have to find a brand that offers an array of services. Besides standard options¬†like delivery and furniture protection plans; you look for a company that has grown with technology, offers online care, free design services and you want a company that invests in social & global good.

When I went looking for such a company, my options were few and far between. What I was surprised to find is that the type of brand I was looking for was in my own back yard, so to speak. I searched around several sites via google searches and sought out reviews and comments about furniture companies, and what I found was Raymour & Flanigan. Raymour & Flanigan has been around since 1947, with their first store in downtown Syracuse, NY. They grew with the times, opening new stores all over the northeast, and now service customers coast to coast with select items from their ever growing catalog. On top of being a premium retailer for dozens of top furniture lines like Bernhardt, Broyhill, and La-Z-Boy, they have become a national influencer on design and style with their social media influence on multiple platforms! They also offer an amazing design service, that unlike a designer, is FREE to use via their online design center! (Talk about huge design resource!)

The next thing that I discovered about Raymour & Flanigan was their customer service options. Besides the standard customer service options that most companies have these days (i.e. email & phone) they also have online chat services. This service not only serves as an option for the hearing impaired community, but also serves as an option for those technophiles, like myself, who prefer the short and sweet of online conversation; without ever worrying about being put on hold or waiting in a line.

Delivery GuideSo what did I go shopping for you may ask? Well, my sectional sofa certainly had its hay day but it was time to replace it. I used Raymour & Flanigans website to shop around their different sofa and sectional offerings and narrowed it down to a small handful of what I thought would work for my needs. I was able to use the design center to make sure that the items I picked out would fit in the space I needed and the delivery guide to make sure it would fit up my stairwell.

Showroom

Once I found my ideal candidates I was able to head to my local store on 66th St & Broadway in Manhattan to see it in person. This beautiful showroom has every type of design element anyone shopping would look for. Not only do they have Bedroom, Dining Room, and Living Room furniture; they carry everything you need to go with it like lamps, rugs, accessories, and more! I had the pleasure of working with my own personal furniture expert, Elena. She was able to take me right to the sectional I wanted, and show me all the options I had for it.  Not only did I get to pick my color and configuration that best worked for me, but I was able to get a 3 day delivery!

So that moment had arrived where I had figured out the items I wanted and it was time to pay. Elena went over my payment options and she advised me about the financing offers they had which were actually far better than my credit card. I worked with Elena to quickly finish going over finishing touches of the transaction and gave her my information for contact and delivery (I was happy to see I just had to put it into the computer instead of using paper, which is part of their impressive Green Initiative). She went over my warranty of the furniture and the details of the additional warranty services I purchased that would protect my furniture investment for the next 5 years (I host a lot of parties and have a few of “those friends”, like we all do, so the coverage was a no brainer). She went on to advise of a few different days that were available to deliver and told me that I would be receiving a call later in the day to confirm the exact window they would be delivering my purchase. We finished up the purchase and when I arrived home a couple hours later I got a call from Elena personally to let me know my deliver time (which was a surprise since I totally just expected some burly warehouse worker to call with info).

3 Day DeliveryMy delivery day had arrived and I couldn’t be more excited as I had already ditched my old sectional in anticipation of the new arrival. As comfy as my side chairs are, there is nothing like being able to spread out on your sofa. The delivery guys had shown up right in the middle of the window they had promised and began to unload the sectional and rug I purchased, all wrapped up like it was Christmas morning. They quickly were able to bring the pieces up to my apartment and set them up as I wanted it arranged. I was really impressed how quickly the two guys were able to unload, set up, and¬†deliver a finished product!

Online Chat Support

So now came to time to relax and enjoy my new purchase but it of course couldn’t be quite that simple. I noticed that the cording at the base of one of the pieces was a little loose. I hadn’t noticed this minor imperfection at first but I remembered that ¬†I had multiple customer care options to reach out to Raymour & Flanigan. I used the online chat service to let them know of the situation and they reached out to me and scheduled a technician to come out and repair my furniture. Two days later the technician arrived as scheduled and was able to fix the issue in under 15 minutes. He was super polite and advised it was a simple issue to fix and was probably a minor issue that happened in transit. It was so great to see a company that would so quickly stand behind their product like they did!

Giveaway
