Often in a home, that we otherwise love, there is a design feature that is a little “off”. Something that just does not feel right to us. The marble in the photo above could be one such feature. Although there are some cool furnishings in this room, I’m not getting the urge to cuddle up yet. Is the marble just “too blue”? Is a costly renovation in the future?
A day does not go by where the term “downsizing” is not heard in our industry. Even if someone is not looking to move from a larger abode, to a smaller one, in the near future, many are tossing around the idea. What is refreshing to us is that it’s not just us “older baby boomers” pondering living larger in smaller homes. We’ve got some pretty savvy younger groups who say why wait?
What if we never “upsized” our homes and therefore didn’t need to “downsize”? We know just a group who has this figured out. We are always excited to be asked to help them develop a plan to make their homes the perfect LBD for them!

Most of the definitions of an island include the word isolation. Most say an island is something detached from other things. Technically all this is true. However, don’t you think an island in the kitchen is just the opposite of all this? We do.
Long before there were central islands in a kitchen we had these things called kitchen tables and they were smack dab in the middle of the room. Many of us in the over 50 group have all kinds of memories of all the life that happened around these tables. What about you…did you grow up around a kitchen table?
Clients who know us well know that we always ask about pets during the initial consultation. Even during a virtual design, we like to know all about the pets. Type, size, and color. Why do we want to know the color of a pet? And what in the world has this got to do with floor tile?
