Whether you’re involved in a renovation or starting a new construction project, there’s a lot to think about in terms of your home’s exterior design. Landscaping, roofing, and the windows are a few design elements to think about. While your front doors aren’t the first thing that come to mind, this is how you will welcome your guests, your family, and your friends. How it looks is very important!
Next month, the design team and I are heading to High Point! While I have been attending the world’s largest furnishings market for over a decade, for many on my team this will be a first. Needless to say, we’re getting excited, filling our agendas with new collections and finding the perfect pair of walk-with-me-all-day shoes.
You hear the term “Mid-Century Modern” a lot in the design world today. Whether it’s a bar cart at Target or a vintage sideboard from 1stdibs, the Mid-Century trend seems to be everywhere you look. There’s good reason too. With its clean lines and preference for function over embellishment, this style is universally appealing. Best of all, it brings us back to a nostalgic era of uber-cool Don Draper types.
If the kitchen is considered the heart of the home, the living room must be its soul. Every special gathering seems to find its focus in this expansive space. For my family, this is where we unwind after a long day. We come together to discuss our highs and lows, readying ourselves for the possibility of tomorrow. Sometimes, I have a great book in my hand, and others, a great martini!
In honor of National Read a Book Day, we’re sharing some of our favorite spaces to read. We made it a bit challenging by asking for places outside of the home (tricky, as I love to read in bed). The team could also divulge places they’ve only dreamt of curling up with a great read. So ready yourselves for a lovely tour, some locales exotic, some sunshine-filled, and all perfect for the newest best-seller.
