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?

Rustic Meets Refined

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

As Fall is now upon us, I thought it would be fun to explore the “rustic meets refined” trend in relation to the season. Different colors, textures, and natural elements can be brought together to create design that is sophisticated and comfortable, luxurious and “rustic”. This thought on my mind, I happened to come across a neat display while at a showroom selecting furniture for a client.

Here are a couple more examples to provide some seasonal inspiration.

Tuesday Trends: In Bloom

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

In honor of spring, I thought it would be fun to explore the floral trend that has been popping up.  Floral has taken on a new, more modern edge and definitely isn’t just for little girl’s bedrooms anymore!  Depending on the print chosen, it can also add a fun, modern yet feminine twist to the space – not the same as the 1980’s floral some may be familiar with.  Below we explore some creative uses of the floral trend from wallpaper to wall panels, from bedding to centerpieces.  Happy Spring!
