Designing a home you love can sometimes feel overwhelming. You want your home to be lovely, but you also want it to reflect your family and your lives. With a few simple tips, you can get started on designing a space that spotlights your distinctive style. And if you need assistance, the design professionals at Kurtz Collection are here to help.
Your home should reflect what’s special about you and your life. Fill your home with unique pieces that reflect your experiences and passions. Whether it’s the photographs you’ve taken on travels across the globe, art you’ve picked up in galleries, or pieces that just speak to you, use them in your décor. Don’t be afraid to add unexpected touches; these objects will make your home a more personal and inviting space that engages and delights.
A well-designed room often starts with the rug. From there it becomes easier to select the perfect fabrics, furniture and décor. Well-crafted rugs, furniture and accessories, made with artistry and integrity, will stand the test of time with durability and style.
The most important rule of design is not to be afraid of taking chances. Choose that bright and bold wallpaper for your powder room—even if it’s a splurge. Buy the piece of art that grabs you. Listen to your heart and buy what makes you happy. You’re the one who’s going to live with it, so you have to love it. Sometimes you have to throw away all of the rules, mix in the unexpected, and create a layered look that pulls in the things that speak to you. If you love it, do it. Your home should bring you joy.
Kurtz Collection began in Wilmington, Delaware, more than 40 years ago as a purveyor of antique, vintage, and high-end reproduction rugs. Since then, we’ve grown our family and our business to include a full furniture showroom with contemporary and vintage home decor items, hand-knotted artisan rugs, and personalized interior design services. Our second location in Glen Mills features all of the fun accessories and gift items that finish a look and add panache.
Our philosophy is simple: A life well-lived happens in layers over time, and your home should reflect that. The items you surround yourself with should have beauty and function, but they should also be meaningful to you, reflecting the strata of your life. We are here to help you artfully layer color, pattern, texture, and unique pieces to create an inspiring and welcoming space for you, your family, and your guests.
