The matchey-matchey trend is old news.
The current trend is the mix-and-match approach, which focuses on unique style and personality.

Why is this so popular? Home decor is now about creating a look that displays personality as well as “things”.  “But,” you ask, “what if I don’t have that ‘style gene’ (air quotes). I don’t know how to put things together in a unique but stylish way? “

We understand and you are not alone. Most of us were NOT born with that home-decor-meets-Cher gene.

Good news! Cindy at Maupin’s Home Furniture has that gene and she’s a certified Home Guru. Plus, she is happy to help you create your own home decor style. Bring in a picture of the target room and watch her go to work.

Plus, Maupin’s continues to bring in pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a look for any room that perfectly says YOU!


Combining color in an eye-popping way takes talent, but that skill can make a room go from a 7 to a 10 on the scale of incredible in a single bound. Off-Whites, deep blues, and turquoise unite to create a drop dead georgeous combo in this vignette at Maupin’s Home Furniture. The white and off-white trend came back in with a bang when removable furniture covers arrived on the scene. And it  seems it’s not going away any time soon, and rightfully so. The versatility of off-white can’t be matched. You can upscale a room into a more elegant ambiance or dial it back to a more casual vibe simply by fine tuning accessories adding choice furnishings.

Cindy combined the beautiful colors of this vignette with interesting patterns such as abstract patterns in the rug and wall art and lettering patterns in the furniture. The end result is stunning and suitable for most rooms, most tastes, and most budgets.


The Bohemian – or Boho – decor trend is mainly about heavily applying color and loosely applying control. A great place to begin building the look is choosing a colorful sofa. Blue is ideal because it is a friendly color that works and plays well with most other colors. But, if you would like to take the look up a notch, add orange. Blue and orange are compliments on the color wheel which means when you put these two colors together you ramp up your decor from impressive to unforgettable. Used together they pop, creating the extraordinary out of the ordinary.

If you are interested in the Boho trend, we can help you kick things off with a blue Ashley sofa that is built for comfort and versatility.It can fit any decor theme and any room layout. Let Cindy help you mix and match some dazzling accessories to turn your room into a statement.


There’s a lot to say about this spot. Herringbone throw, something crocheted, swing arm lamp, shabby chic mantle flying solo with no fireplace, and a paisley chair (Or are those amoebas? Paisley? Amoebas? Amoebas? Paisley? Just wondering. Always have.)

But our eye goes to the sequined pillow. Monotoned … or as monotoned as something like a sequin that reflects light can be. And, because of that refracted light, the pillow manages to match all the other gray tones in the room. The chair. The crocheted foot rest. The scrapes on the solo mantle. The rug. That is it’s genius. If it weren’t for the pillow this room would be manic.

And, who knew you could get your bling on with pillows? But you can. Pillows are harmless. Seemingly. But these harmless swatches of fabric and stuffing can take room bubbling with chaos and sit all the players in a row and get them to raise their hands. Pillows can be the generals in a room where the battle is on for focus.

Cindy, resident pillow-ologist at Maupin’s, can tell you all about the power of pillows. Come down and visit.


Great question! And “Hi”! Welcome the Maupin’s Home Furniture blog. Let’s talk about trends. It seems, these days, everything runs in trend cycles. Right? Smart phones. Clothes. Cars. Friends. Home decor. You name it. But  the trend of living up to trends gets expensive. Who has the pocketbook or time to give their home a makeover in lock step with the latest trends? But have you ever met that person who can make something out of nothing? That person’s whose sense of style transcends trends? They don’t have to recreate the latest look because they have a sixth sense about how to work with what they already have and by adding the right touch here and the odd but right touch there they create a look that is unique, non-trendy, and unforgettable.

Home stylist Cindy Stagner has that touch. Bring your favorite Pinterest picture to Maupin’s and let Cindy help you create the room you dream about. All within your budget. Or, if budget isn’t the issue, but a sense of style is, let Cindy help you put together a look that says “come on in, take off your skin, rattle around in your bones.”

Trends and style are relative. Comfort and taste are classic elements that can be added to any room with the right pieces. If you need a little help finding your sense of flare, Cindy’s there and ready to help.
