DOES YOUR HOME NEED SOME LOVE? LET US HELP!


Our Favorite Accent Pillow and Why
Thursday May 23 2024 by Stacey Beyer

Meet the Cornelia.

Not only is she our best-selling pillow, she’s also one of our absolute favs here at The Black Goose Design! We thought we’d take this opportunity to share what it is that makes her our leading lady in the accent-pillow department.

 

 

VERSATILE

At first glance, this pillow may look like a specific style that will work only in a specific space, but we’re always shocked at how many colors the Cornelia pairs well with.

 

RICH

With the flax linen background and richness created by the gold tones woven throughout, this pillow immediately sets the tone to “inviting.”

PLAYFUL

It’s in the Cornelia’s other colors that things really start to get fun! You’ll see black and brown, making it easy to pair with various neutrals.

 

You’ll also see blue tones that look beautiful with navy, slate blue, sea glass, dusty blue, and other cool shades of blue and green.

STANDOUT

This pillow truly is a statement piece. Why not let Ms. Cornelia do the talking as the newest addition in your home?  We have premade pillows available in three different color options. Our personal favorite is the grey/gold color, but they each have something beautiful to offer.

 

CUSTOMIZABLE

Want to make the Cornelia all your own? We can order fabric by the yard. For this particular piece, yardage is available to order in five different color ways. Contact The Black Goose Design today to see samples and discover your favorite way to play with our favorite fluffy friend.

 




Market Recap and NEW Coming Soon
Friday Apr 26 2024 by Stacey Beyer

As we compile our notes from this year’s High Point Market, one word rules them all – customization! As designers, our team at The Black Goose Design couldn’t be more thrilled to see trends going this direction, as it means we have that much more opportunity to make your space uniquely your own.

 

Join us for this market show-and-tell. You’ll get a look at some of our favorite items and the newest looks coming soon to our showroom.

 

WHAT WE LOVE

We are so excited to see customization moving away from solids and into more playful patterns and fabrics. Embracing this approach to furniture allows personality to come shining through, which is so much fun!

 

With the rise in customize, we are seeing brilliant fabric combos coming back into play. Mixing leather with fabric, for example, or pairing a simple fabric with an energetic, contrasting welt . . . these are changing the interior design game in the best of ways

 

CASE GOODS SHOWCASE

Wood pieces are making a statement with textured touches. We saw items wrapped in raffia and linen, as well as pieces made of burl wood, tree bark, and even horn.

 

ART ACCENTUATED

Basic wall art is getting an upgrade. Decorative pieces are loaded with texture, as well as sculpted items, and other 3D applications.

 

COMING SOON TO THE BLACK GOOSE DESIGN

Ready for your first look at items headed to our showroom? Make yourself comfortable. We have a bunch of good stuff to go over. Here are a few of our favorites!

 

 

 

 

Of course, there is more where this came from. Stop by often over the coming weeks and months. You’re sure to discover new items to fall in love with every time you visit. 




Top Three Trends from Market
Friday Feb 9 2024 by Stacey Beyer

It’s market season … the time of year our buyers get to visit tradeshows and see the latest and greatest in furniture and home décor coming our way! We recently returned from a trip to the AmericasMart Market in Atlanta, Georgia, where we spotted several new trends we can’t wait to incorporate into our work and your homes! Let’s take a look at our top three. Plus, we’ll share a sneak peek of brand new lines coming to The Black Goose Design in 2024!

 spring 2024 trends

Trend Spotting: Décor for Spring 2024

 

Trend #1: Scallops

This softer side of design is already big in fashion, and now it’s making waves in home décor. From scalloped storage solutions to furniture to wall art, we adore the modern take on this classic staple.

SNEAK PEEK

You’ll find plenty of the aforementioned trends coming to The Black Goose Design in the weeks ahead. In addition, we're thrilled to introduce three new lines coming to our showroom. The first is an impressive assortment of new throws. It offers more options and variety than any throw line we’ve carried before, and we can’t wait to let the layering begin.

The second is a collection of furniture and accessories that are as visually pleasing as they are sustainable. It’s so cool to see home décor going this route!

Finally, we know the holiday season just concluded, but we’re already looking forward to the merry and bright items coming for the 2024 season. We have a line that focuses on vintage-styled pieces, as well as fun Christmas art that you’re going to want in your possession.

Five Wallpaper Trends for 2024
Friday Jan 26 2024 by Stacey Beyer

When it comes to 2024 interior design trends, the writing is on the wall. Wallpaper! It adds an instant boost to any space and, because it’s a popular design approach to take, the paper possibilities seem endless. Here are our top five favorite ways to incorporate wallpaper this year:

 

image credit: Thibaut Design

1. Wallpaper Ceilings

What was once a forgotten spot in a room is now an added place to add interest and energy. A wallpapered ceiling draws the eye up, highlighting already-beautiful framed ceilings or adding interest to a more basic overhead surface. After all, why should rugs have all the fun when there are floor-to-ceiling ways to accentuate a room?

image credit: York Wallcoverings

 

2. Wallpaper Murals

Murals are often associated with paint, but you can greatly simplify the process with a papered mural and achieve the same stunning results. Opting for the muraled approach to wallpaper creates an impressive art piece that both tells a story and sets a defined mood.

3. Wallpaper with Contrasting Trim

Want your wallpaper to really pop? Paint your wall trim a contrasting color. It’s an easy way to make your wallpaper stand out while also incorporating color.

4. High-contrast Floral Wallpaper

Floral wallpaper is nothing new. It seems like flowers were on wallpaper as soon as wallpaper was a thing. What IS new is choosing high-contrast prints. It’s a effective way to add a modern twist to this classic look.

5. Coordinating Wallpaper and Fabric

Bring on the drama. Matching your fabric (window treatmetns, bedding, and more!) to your paper will give your space designer detail. You can adjust the level of drama depending on how much pattern mating you do. Have fun trying on options for size until you land on a look you love.

Get in a Brood Mood with these Must-Have Colors
Wednesday Nov 1 2023 by Stacey Beyer

Halloween may be over, but we’re still in a mood here at The Black Goose Design. Specifically, the moody shades of paint we're craving for both the interior and exterior. Feeling all the feels, a few of our designers are here to take a deep dive and share their fav darker hues for 2023 and looking ahead to 2024.

 

 

Georgia’s Picks: Backwoods by Benjamin Moore; Cyberspace by Sherwin Williams

 

 

Monica’s Picks: Blue Note and Blue Spruce by Benjamin Moore; Sea Serpent by Sherwin Williams 

Sea Serpent by Sherwin Williams

Suzee’s Picks: Wrought Iron, Hale Navy, and Rainy Afternoon by Benjamin Moore

 

 

DelReanne and Lindsay’s Picks: Nocturnal Gray by Benjamin Moore; Rockwood Shutter Green by Sherwin Williams

Rockwood Shutter Green by Sherwin Williams

Karaden’s Picks: Intrigue by Benjamin Moore; Urbane Bronze and Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams

Urbane Bronze by Sherwin Williams

Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams

Whether you use these shades indoors or out, they’ll definitely give your home or office a modern yet inviting vibe.

Yes, you can paint your walls or even opt for wallpaper in these shades, but adding color to cabinets is also a look we love! 

 

 

It’s a common misconception that deeper shades can make a space feel cold or even small. That’s not necessarily the case. It’s all in how you use the color – other shades you’re pairing it with, the undertones the color casts, etc.

If you love a broody vibe but aren’t sure where to begin or which shade is right for you, schedule a paint consultation with one of us at The Black Goose Design. We love a good color chat and the opportunity to connect with you. Plus, we have a tremendous number of swatches and samples to pull and play with, so you can really get an idea of what pairs well and where your brood ‘tude resides. Hope to see you soon!

LIGHTING TREND 1: Statement Lighting

Add instant personality and set the tone for the entire room with a statement lighting piece. These fixtures are typically oversized and do more than simply illuminate the room, they lead the room! They create an overhead focal point, adding fun and personality. If long-term commitment fears tend to interfere with your ability to make interior modifications, this is a lovely entry point. After all, you can always change out your fixture if you decide it’s time for something new. In other words, don’t hesitate to select a look that’s really going to make a statement!

LIGHTING TREND 3: Warm Tones

The heat has officially been turned up in the world of design. From cool whites and greys, the pendulum has swung to warmer hues and nature's influence. This includes the look of light fixtures.

High Point Market, Part 2
Wednesday May 17 2023 by Stacey Beyer

If we could describe the 2023 High Point Market in one word, it would be… TEXTURE. This fingertip treat was large and in charge at this season’s buyers’ market. We can’t wait to get our hands on the enticing assortment headed to The Black Goose Design in the coming weeks. Here’s just a small sampling of what you can expect, as well as a few texture tips to know going into this 2023 show-stopper.

High Point Furniture Market 

TEXTURE TIP 1: Keep it Clean

Because textures are often fabric in finish, it’s a common misconception that texture = hard to clean. While there are times when this can be the case, it’s less of a concern with high-end furniture. Many of the new gems coming soon are “performance fabrics,” which means they’re made to be used AND cleaned.

performance fabric 

 

TEXTURE TIP 2: Get Set for Depth

A big reason texture is gaining in popularity is its ability to instantly add depth to any space. By incorporating a variety of finishes, you’ll notice your room springs to life in a more dynamic way.

2023 design trends 

 

TEXTURE TIP 3: Pattern Alternative

If you love the idea of variety but prefer solids and neutrals to prints, texture is tops! It mixes things up in a way all its own with or without the help of a pattern.

ottoman trends 

 

TEXTURE TIP 4: Count On Color

A newer take on texture comes in the form of color. Neutral finishes such as sherpa, wool, and other classic options are now coming out in rich hues, taking texture to new and vibrant heights.

Highlights from High Point Furniture Market, Part 1
Wednesday May 3 2023 by Stacey Beyer

Let’s get straight to the point… High Point Furniture Market. We’ve just returned from this annual trip to High Point, North Carolina, and our team at The Black Goose Design is filling energized and excited! We can’t wait to share the good things coming your way in this two-part recap. Welcome to Part 1 of our High Point Highlights!

 

COLOR IS KEY

The last few market/buying trips we’ve made have proven color is the comeback queen, and this show was no exception! The colors that caught our eye at High Point are greens, reds, oranges, and blues.

2023 color trends

We always love seeing blue on the list because it pulls double duty as a color boost AND a calming neutral option.

For a brighter take on these earth-inspired shades, fuscia is an on-trend choice!

PATTERN, PLEASE

We’re coming out of the season of solids and seeing more patterns at play. New, BOLD patterns are in! You’ll start to see more of these statement stars in pillows, furniture, art, and wallpaper.

Even the wall art is taking things up a notch.

PATTERN PAIRS

A newer approach to pattern that we’re loving is pattern pairing. For example, this can be done by mixing more than one wallpaper in a single room, with one design on one wall and another on another. Bold? Yes! Amazing? Absolutely! The trick to remember is considering your pattern’s weight/scale. If one print is very large or busy, opt for a smaller or more symmetrical look as its counterpart. This helps the two complement rather than compete.

CRAZY FOR CURVES

Also on the softer side, we’re taking our straight lines for a curve. The blunt, linear look is being offset with movement.

Lee Industries

We also spotted unique furniture configuration, like the larger cushion at the center of this sectional.

From color works and pattern play to shapely finds and more movement, t’s easy to see why this trip to High Point Furniture Market was an annual highlight.

Stop by The Black Goose Design over the next few weeks to see these and other new looks start to hit our showroom floor. Plus, don’t forget to join us right back here on May 17, 2023 for part two of our High Point Highlights. Next time, we’re talking a trend taking the design world by storm. You won’t want to miss it!

Our Go-To White Paint Picks for 2023
Wednesday Feb 22 2023 by Stacey Beyer

White is white… right? No, actually. White comes in various shades, tones, and temps, which can make choosing the right white tricky. Your friends at The Black Goose Design are here to help. We’ve rounded up our favorite white paint picks for 2023 and added why we love them and where they work well. Take a look, take notes, and find out which will be your fav takeaway.

top white paint shades for 2023

The Black Goose Design 

Monica Woodland, one of our talented designers, has a three-way tie for her top white likes.

SWISS COFFEE by Benjamin Moore

 

“This is my number one go-to white. It looks great with modern, transitional, traditional, cottage, farmhouse... Really, it goes with everything. It is not a cool, stark white, but warm without being beige or yellow. It is a great color to use to take a space from dated and tired, to fresh and updated.”

We recently painted one of our showrooms at The Black Goose Design using this striking white. What a difference a coat of paint makes to the overall feel of this room!

2023 white paint to use 

SNOWBOUND by Sherwin Williams

 

“You don't have to tell me white isn't a color. It has so much depth to offer. Around here, Snowbound has become a staple. The reason I'm drawn to its clean, bright aesthetic is because of its ability to match the variety of white tiles and look sharp against grays, taupes, and blacks without feeling like a blinding bright white. This is all thanks to its gray undertones. I used Snowbound in a whole house to provide a clean backdrop for inherited artwork and collected accessories, which helped make everything feel more cohesive and every random piece feel special.”

 

EGRET by Sherwin Williams

 

“Although the color says "white," if placed next to a brighter white like Sherwin Williams Snowbound, you can tell that Egret has a nice light taupe tone to it. I especially love this color in homes with darker stained cabinets and accents, as it brings everything into balance without making the color scheme feel too hot and cold. This shade provides a subtle hint of warmth without being completely white.”

 

Ashley Dawson is all about the versatility her selection offers. 

 

CITY LOFT by Sherwin Williams

 

“I like that this paint color can pull towards warm or cool tones depending on what you fill the space with. Overall, it is just a cozy off-white.”

 

Olga Liu, another talented designer, has a two-way tie for her top spots.

 

ALABASTER by Benjamin Moore

 

“This is a great option when you’re looking for something that’s more of an off-white.”

 

WHITE DOVE by Benjamin Moore

 

“This has a beautiful warmth to it and makes the space feel cozy and inviting.”

 

Denise Van Ekelenburg, one of our senior designers, has two go-to whites as well.

ALABASTER by Sherwin Williams

 

“This is a great trim white and also great for walls and kitchen cabinets. Depending on the sheen, you could use it in the same space.”

 

EIDER WHITE by Sherwin Williams

 

“This is a ‘white’ that shows you different sides of itself depending on the time of the day, which is fun. No matter when you view it, it comes off very warm and plays well with brighter whites. It’s also a great exterior color to mix with rocks and stucco.”

 

Kylie Cardwel, our assistant manager and designer,l adds a second vote to two of the whites already mentioned.

SNOWBOUND by Sherwin Williams

 

“This white is a perfect soft white that can be used to create a calming and tranquil atmosphere. The taupe undertone brings warmth, helping to create a good balance between that cold whiteness and yellow-ish white. This would be a great option for a well-lit bedroom or kitchen.”

 

ALABASTER by Sherwin Williams

This is a classic go-to white, offering the brightness of white without being too stark or sacrificing a warm and cozy feel. The beige undertone brings a soft white and would be a great neutral to pair with versatile colors.”

 

 

Georgia Kendall, general manager of The Black Goose Design, also has one of her selections in common with a fellow team member, as well as a new shade to put on your list. 

SUPER WHITE by Benjamin Moore

 

“This is a great bright white. I used this on an exterior project, and it went well with the bright white soffit and fascia on the home. It creates a crisp, clean finish.”

WHITE DOVE by Benjamin Moore

 

“This is a cozy white. With a little more of a warm grey undertone, this white can really brighten up a space without being too white. I use this on walls and trim.”

 

There you have it. Our list of go-to color catalog of whites to try during 2023. To see swatch samples and how they might pair with your painting plans, stop by The Black Goose Design in Midvale, Utah and chat with one of our team members today.

Get Organized with the Latest Home Looks
Wednesday Jan 11 2023 by Stacey Beyer

It’s January, and we’re suddenly in the mood to sort, clean,and organize. There could be any number of explanations for this annual organization phenomenon, from the new influx of items in the home to returning things to their “everyday” appearance after months of holiday styling. Whatever the reason, we’re all for getting our stuff together on this month and have several sleek ideas, big and small, for many areas in your home.

BRING ON THE BASKETS

Let’s start small. Okay, as far as baskets go, these aren’t exactly petite, but they're on the smaller end of our storage solution line-up. Tuck these beauties in a corner for a storage solution that’s as decorative as it is functional.

Here are just a few fav ways to put the baskets in business:

  • A shoe catch-all, strategically placed near the entry of your home. Say goodbye to the clutter and hello to a welcoming doorway.
  • A blanket bank. Having a few extra throws nearby is always a good idea, but it’s extra wise this chilly time of year. Use your big baskets to house the heat.
  • A toy box. Add a few large baskets to the main living areas of your home and keep toys within arm’s reach… even those little arms. Plus, this makes clean up a breeze and something everyone can help with.
  • Pillow placement. Whether you’re tucking away seasonal accent pillows currently in the off season or you place baskets near your bed for nightly use when it’s time to set those dreamy bed pillows aside, baskets are great for keeping the fluffy stuff contained.

 

INTRODUCING THE ENTRY/SOFA TABLE

Adding a new furniture item doesn’t have to mean overhauling your entire floorplan. Opt for something slender, like this sofa table, which adds storage space without taking up a bunch of room in the process.

Here are a few fav ways to include accent tables:

  • Some extra sofa storage. They’re often referred to as sofa tables for a reason – they line up nicely behind a sofa or sectional. This means you have more room to store things like the remotes, chargers, pens, and other go-to items you like to have on hand without being out in the open.
  • A welcoming place to place. Entryways are often narrower than the rest of the home, making a sleek piece like this an ideal option. It provides a place for car keys, handbags/backpacks, homework, water bottles, and other frequently-used on-the-go elements. Of course, nobody wants a pile of packs greeting them as they walk in the door, which is why we love adding closed containers like these wood boxes to the lower level of entry tables. They’re the prime spot for such everyday essentials.
  • A hallway helper. Another narrow spot that sometimes need a little support is the hallway. If your walkway is large enough to support a slim addition, you could make this a central location for frequently-used household items (scissors, pens, paper, tape, chargers, batteries, schedules/planners, passes/library cards/etc., permission slips, shopping lists and more.

 

CALLING ALL CABINETS

Now we’re to our largest solution – cabinets. Whether you find yourself short on closet/cabinet space (don’t we all?) or you simply want a gorgeous new focal point for the home, these favorite cabinets are just the ticket.

Here are a few fav ways to use cabinets:

  • Your office assistant. Whether you opt for a tall cabinet or a horizontal style, you'll find a cabinet makes a fine office companion. Add some pretty books, plants, and other decorative touches for style, and use boxes for the less attractive office supplies. 
  • A kitchen keeper. Because cabinets are often open or have glass doors, it’s a good idea to be intentional with the items you select. Think of pieces that not only serve you well but look good while doing it. Examples include your beloved dishes, cake stands, barware, pretty mixing/serving bowls, candle sticks, trays, etc.

 how to style a kitchen shelf

NOTE: Look for a cabinet with drawers for smaller or less eye-catching items, such as linens, cutlery, and other go-to items.

how to organize kitchen linens 

  • A TV ta-da! The television is a common gathering place, so it might as well look its best. Add a horizontal cabinet as a chic TV stand and place key entertainment items inside. For things that don’t really fit your design aesthetic, add small boxes and baskets. Abracadabra, the unsightly clutter is gone (but never out of reach!).
  • Your playroom partner. A horizontal cabinet is also a smart choice in a playroom, as it’s close to the ground, which helps with accessibility and safety. This is another time when baskets and bins come in handy and make sorting different toy types easier. With a long, lean storage machine such as this, you can have baskets for art supplies, blocks, dolls, toy cars, stuffed animals, play food, dress-up supplies, and so much more. Let your storage dreams run wild!

Wednesday Dec 7 2022 by Stacey Beyer

What a year! From brilliant residential rennovation and new builds to unforgettable commercial space and an update to our own home base, our team at The Black Goose Design has been busy and loving every moment and completed project 2022 has had to offer. Here, in no particular order, is a look at a few of our favorites, along with design trends and market finds that continue to put smiles on our faces. 

Psstttt... We're even sharing a first look at the updates recently made to the upper level of our showroom. You don't want to miss this transformation! Let's get to it!

Bell Canyon residence 

Breathing new life into an existing home it can be both challenging and extremely rewarding. In this inherited project, we got a gorgeous foundation to build from and still can't get over the end result. 

The natural light and views combined with the rich colors and interior elements come together in perfect harmony.

GV Construction and Renovation Specialists

Why we love it: This canyon home is infused with natural influence. From the stone work on the walls to the marble finishes, iron additions, and on-point wood workings throughout, the home's exterior surroundings weave seamlessly into the interior, making it the perfect mountainside oasis.

Sweet Bath Co. Commercial Project

Outlets at Traverse Mountain 

As much as we adore working residential, switching it up with commercial spaces is always a fun change of pace. Especially when that space is as sparkling as this Traverse Mountain shop.

Sweet Bath Company 

Why we love it: This isn't your ordinary shop. It's open and inviting but also warm and cozy. Of course, they're sensational bath bombs and other self-care products are pretty wonderful too. For a sneak peek, you can do a little shopping from the comfort of your phone, but there's nothing like visiting the shop in person to take in the full ambiance of this 2022 design highlight. 

See the full Sweet Bath Co. reveal here.

New home in South Jordan 

The blank slate of a new build always fills us with joy. When we started this home project, the building process was nearly complete, which meant we got to collaborate with the amazing owners with every decorative detail. 

floral interior design tricks 

Why we love it: This home has beauty and style all its own. The floral influences and soft feminine touches throughout make it feel light and so very happy! Plus, you've simply got to see the master closet in this one!

Wednesday Nov 9 2022 by Stacey Beyer

A new year means new trending colors to love, but this hue is clearly standing the test of time as a timeless classic – PINK! What do we expect more of in 2023? Pink paint! And we couldn’t be more tickled. We'll share a few of our favorite shades at The Black Goose Design.

Pink is no longer just for little kids and dreamhouses. These tones are straight out of nature. No wonder they have the ability to create such a calming effect. 

 

PINK FABRIC

If you want to try pink on for size before taking your roller for a spin on those walls, look at adding pink fabrics to your upholstered items. Whether it’s a full-on pink chair or sofa (swoon!) or some pink accent pillows, you’ll feel the warmth and coziness this color family creates.

Sometimes “traditional” is associated with heavy, dark, and large pieces. Not the case with these beautiful pieces.
