One of the most popular design trends to adorn your home is the creation of a gallery wall. It’s a great way to decorate a wall in a personal way. We’ve seen them on dominant walls over sofas or sideboards, on smaller walls in entryways or bedrooms, or traveling up the wall alongside the stairs. A well-designed gallery wall can create an incredible focal point for your home, but you want to make sure you do it right! An unplanned, undone wall can look like a cluttered mess, and none of us want that!
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, those of us hosting the day in our homes are already at work getting our places ready for family and festivities. While your Thanksgiving table (and hopefully the food!) will be the main attraction, don’t limit your decorative attention to just that space. Spread the holiday décor around your home to keep your guests in the holiday spirit no matter where they are.
October has arrived and all you parents out there know that means one thing: Halloween is on the horizon! If your house is anything like mine, that means more than just picking out costumes and finding the best candy. It means getting your space in the spirit by incorporating some holiday décor around your home.
Last month, we had the exciting opportunity to host Linen & Flax’s very first Fall Faire. Our team transformed the backyard of our storefront on Canton Street into a celebration of the season on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
I love the start of a new season. It always feels like a great time to make a new start or embark on a new adventure. And as we’re gearing up for fall, I can’t wait to see what this upcoming season holds.
One of my favorite things to do in the mornings before everyone stirs and life gets started is to escape to my own cozy corner in my home. With a cup of coffee in hand, I steal away to read, pray, rest and mentally prepare for all that’s ahead in the day.
Every home has a story to tell. The people, the decorations, the life lived inside—all of those things contribute to the overall story of your home. And one of the best ways you can add to the story of your space is by incorporating a few vintage finds into your décor. Vintage elements help give your home some one-of-a-kind character. And believe it or not, they’re pretty easy to find! Take a trip to your local flea market, shop around at an antique store or estate sale or simply look around your own home for some classic family hand me downs. You’re sure to find some timeless treasures to put to use in your home.
If you’ve visited our storefront on Canton Street, then you’ve probably seen our Linen & Flax team huddled around the table in our office tucked away in the corner. While we love having a space where we can all work together, the truth is our workspace can get a little tight when all of us are around the table at the same time! That’s why I’ve created a separate workspace for myself in one of my favorite places—my home!
One of my favorite things about summer (or really any season for that matter) is gathering around the table with friends. There’s nothing better than a good summer night get together and, if you’re anything like me, you leave the cooking to someone else and focus on setting the scene with some summer themed décor.
One of the best spots in your home may not actually be in your home. In fact, it’s just outside your front door—your porch! Living in the heart of the South, a front porch is a must in a home. And it’s become one of my favorite places to not only kick back and relax but also gather for some quality time with friends and family. Check out a few things you can do to make your front porch a cozy, intimate space for entertaining and unwinding.
When putting together our family room, I knew I wanted it to be a space in our home that was not only beautiful but also functional. It’s one of the rooms in our home that is almost always in use, and so I knew it needed to be comfortable and inviting while at the same time practically laid out with space for all of our family and guests. That’s why, when it came time to pick out seating, I opted for the best combination of form and function for a family room: a sectional sofa.
One of the pieces our clients and visitors to our storefront on Canton Street ask us about all the time is the custom made barn doors we incorporate into so many of our designs. And we understand why! They’re one of the most beautiful statement pieces you can put in your home. And what better way to incorporate a little farmhouse feel than by bringing in handcrafted barn doors?
So often guest rooms inadvertently become forgotten spaces in our homes. But rather than letting them be the sparse or disregarded parts of your house, try thinking of your guest spaces as the home away from home for your visitors.
Last month we welcomed the arrival of spring at Linen & Flax by hosting our first ever Spring Garden Party. We transformed the backyard of our storefront home on Canton Street into an outdoor gathering space for guests to grab a drink, pull up a chair, and get inspired to kick off the spring season in style.

In this day and age, it seems the home most everyone is dreaming of is a big, beautiful farmhouse. Now while we can’t all build that big, beautiful farmhouse from the ground up, we can add elements of the look into our homes.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and, if you’re anything like me, you’re already thinking about what’s going to be on your table that day. No, I’m not talking about the food (although who doesn’t love a good pumpkin pie?). I’m talking about your décor!
