Trendy Tuesday: Painted Island Cabinets

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Have you heard of this trend? As designers, we see more and more people wanting to mix colors and textures even going into the kitchen. Most often we’ll choose a soft/main color for the perimeter cabinets and coordinating color or stain for the island. This adds interest to the whole look of the kitchen especially since the island is a common main gathering place. Check out the ideas we enjoy and feel free to live a little with your new painted island!

Trendy Tuesday: Marble & Gold

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Marble is all the rage right now. It’s light, crisp, and fresh. Makes you feel like you’re always in a fancy hotel. Who doesn’t want that? There’s another design aspect that is very popular again as well, GOLD! I bet 30 years ago people thought gold would stay forever. Fortunately or unfortunately it disappeared for a while. Some of us are glad that the 80’s gold fell by the way side and the new and improved gold arrived on the scene. Gold doesn’t always have a place in every design but you can’t go wrong when it’s paired with a clean, smooth marble. If you’ve been thinking about a design change in your bathroom, kitchen, or any other place in your home that needs to showcase some interest, check out this blog about how easily gold can fit anywhere. Have fun!

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!
