Office Space
Erika Johnson
My fiancé and I are two entrepreneurial spirits dwelling in an office-less home. Our neighbors must scratch their heads as he paces along the white picket fence on a conference call while I video-conference from our dining table. Some days, the guest room serves as his office while I spread my files across the glassed-in patio. Although my favorite days are those that I field emails from our cozy bed, it’s time for an...

Decorating a Child’s Bedroom
Decorating a Child’s Bedroom
Cristin Priest
There’s nothing more precious than a young child’s imagination. To nurture young minds, their rooms should reflect a sense of playfulness and optimism. As a mother, I also believe in creating spaces that both children and parents can enjoy. Ideally it should satisfy an adult aesthetic. Like any design project, the process of designing a child’s room can get a bit overwhelming. Having a plan will save you time and money. Here are some design tips...

A Soft Place to Rest Your Head
A Soft Place to Rest Your Head
Katie Rosenfeld
Lately I have had many clients ask me if upholstered headboards or beds are trendy. The answer to this is an emphatic, "No!" Classic, timeless, and simple, they are an affordable and still luxurious solution for any bedroom environment.  My grandmothers both had them, so what does that say? Transitional in design, headboards look great in many different design genres or styles—so, how do you know what kind of headboard is right for you? Tufted, square, curvy, ethnic, or...

Blooms For Rooms
Blooms For Rooms
Matthew Mead
Flowers for entertaining should be easy and fuss free. Grab a bouquet or blooming plant of hydrangeas from the grocery store and create a special arrangement for any occasion. When I think about adding floral interest to my house I first think about what I might use for containers. In most cases we all have wonderful and engaging objects all over the house that can be recycled into an eye-catching display for just the right...

Part of the creative process when planning a kitchen renovation is to continually envision the finished kitchen, which keeps you on track design-wise. So many products, materials, and finishes need to be coordinated in your kitchen design. When it comes to working with wood finishes, you need a clear roadmap to help guide...

A Good Rug
A Good Rug
Katie Bower
There are some very important things I have learned from having a kid. First important thing is that toy cars are not as fun when driven on your face. Secondly - a rug can make or break your life. I'm not even kidding. This is earth shattering stuff. And I can hear the mom's & dad's out there agreeing wholeheartedly complete with clapping. Let me start at the beginning. Our old house had carpeting - wonderful soft-on-bare-knees carpeting....

Sometimes a girl just needs to be a girl. But how do you give a room that feel without making it look like it was designed for your 10-year-old niece or your 90-year-old grandmother? You can have a room that is right for your style but still says “all girl” by using delicate colors, materials, finishes, and patterns. Here are a few tips for creating that romantic room you want—without the fuss: Color is a key...

“You must miss your closet,” my husband astutely said to me this morning as I was getting ready for work. In our last house, I had a great closet. Though our 1903 plain Victorian in New York lacked for closets overall, one bedroom had a sweet and smallish walk-in with a window and extra space under the attic stairs. It was my pretty retreat. My best friend helped me wallpaper in an exuberant orange-and-metallic gold floral....

Taste. Inspiration. To me, the two go hand in hand.

What started as a way to preserve my heritage and family history has evolved into what I consider the ultimate archive—precious family recipes and photography that can be passed from generation to generation. Along the way, sharing my stories and...

One of the things I love about choosing colors is that you have millions to choose from.

Making color choices and design decisions is something I do every day. As the President and Chief Color Maven...

My 20-year-old daughter looked at me square in the face when I started my website,  2 years ago and said, “Mom, you are going to fail at this.” I said, “Gee honey,  thanks, but why?” “M..o...m,” she said, condescendingly I might add. “Women over 35 can barely read their email. How do you think they are going to figure out how to find your website? The internet is for young people.” On that note, I started my...
