Happy Thanksgiving /// Black Friday Favorites

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We all hope at Maison KoduZen that you are having a jolly time with families and friends - enjoying the turkey, tofurkey, no-turkey and other pies and goodies that made their way to your table on this great day! 

As we all know, the tradition requires that we all get over our food coma tomorrow by doing some shopping and help stores get their numbers back into Black (a guilt-free way to look at it!). 

When it comes to decoration and furnishing, we wanted to give you our tips and items we are obsessed about these days - all rather contemporary/Scandinavian we must admit. Some of our sources clearly display how much of a discount we can expect tomorrow while some others remain unclear. Either way, check them out and don't forget that contacting us tomorrow to work with us will get you a 10% discount (using the code: BLACK)!!!

 Happy Black Friday!

Color of the Month: Yellow

During the fall season, the obvious colors that come to mind are the reds, oranges and gold tones you can observe in nature. Orange obviously gets a lot of credit as it is one of the colors of Halloween and of the many pumpkins, squashes and alike that will invade our plates for Thanksgiving.

But how about a change and go with yellow for once? How about brightening up your interior for Thanksgiving festivities as we are heading towards the shortest days of the year? Especially as with yellow, you can set the tone for the gold and glitters that December will bring along. Yellow is also a very earthy color that tends to make people smile so whether you spend Thanksgiving with your family or with friends, this cannot do any harm! 

As per orange, yellow has MANY variations - and given it is one of the most versatile colors of all (add a little bit of ANY other color and you will compromise its tint, shade or tone), possibilities are endless. If your interior is mostly black and white, you can easily go for a neutral/buttery shade, if you have a cool palette, go for a lemony yellow, or if you like warm colors in general, go for the dandelion, butterscotch options so it blends well with your interior. 

yellow variations

For those avert to big changes or not big yellow lovers, you can also think of something small, or not too permanent - which is the great thing about decorating for festivities!

Flowers, napkins, vases, candles, bowls filled with lemons (more on making centerpieces with fruits coming soon), or cute little bowls for nibbles: below is a selection of our favorites for the upcoming festivities as well as their vendors.

Have fun!

One small note: from a Feng Shui prospective, dried or fake flowers are stagnant energy so better opt for fresh, real flowers. More tips on Feng shui coming soon!
