Front Door Trend Friday!

Friday, August 4th, 2017

They say the eye is the window to the soul, so what is the front door if you already have windows? It’s just another way to add your personality to your house and it sets the tone for the rest of the house! There are a number of front door designs that can be worked into your scheme but only you know what feels right. Traditional, Industrial, Contemporary, tall, all windows, no windows, wood, iron…the list goes on. Do you want more natural light with glass in the door and added sidelights? Or do you need more privacy in your entrance with a solid door design? Are you eccentric and need a pop of color to make a statement or does the more subtle, sleek look better define you? Also, have you gotten on that timeless Navy Blue accent train yet? I’ve heard the ride is real smooth. Below are a few front door trends that will plant the seed about how you want to feel upon walking into your home and also how you would want to set the tone for guests, for the rest of your space. What design/color speaks to you most?

Tuesday Trends- Office vs. Guest Room

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

If you haven’t had friends or family visit recently, it may be time to renovate that extra room so that it has a multi-purpose function. There are many ways to make the space function for you, as well as your everyone else in your life that comes to visit. Maybe you need an additional space that functions as an office, or perhaps you have a hard-working guest that needs an office space of their own when they come to visit. Hopefully this post will get your creative juices flowing enough to take on a new project, big or small. May is a great time to start, especially in time to have some summer guests!
