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?

Look How Far We’ve Come

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

My husband and I have a favorite, cozy get-away spot in Wisconsin that we stay at annually for a relaxing weekend of complete peace and quiet. During our most recent stay I found myself cozied up on the sofa, glass of wine in hand, paging through catalogs dating back to the year 1957. The American Home was one that particularly grabbed my attention. As I flipped through the pages I came across advertisements for a number of manufacturers that we still work with today! My how things have changed. I snapped a couple pictures of these pages with my cell phone, enjoy!

Accessorize!

Monday, December 28th, 2015

As the Christmas season comes to an end and Christmas decorations are being packed up and placed back into storage, take some time to consider your built-in cabinets and bookcases as you re-accessorize. Use these architectural accents throughout your home to showcase style and personality. We come across so many unique accessories on a day-to-day basis that I wanted to share some photos and provide some inspiration. Don’t let the thought of accessories and placement stress you out, but make it enjoyable. We are happy to help!Slide1
