No matter what the weather has been in your area, spring is always in our dining rooms during this special holiday. Make your table setting special for the most important people in your family. Happy Easter!
Mr. LBD has wanted to convert a church into our home on several occasions. He has even seriously looked at two I can remember that were vast caverns of space complete with enough Sunday school rooms to be a hotel. Except for picturing the baptismal tank as the most wonderful home spa, I just couldn’t warm up to the idea. (pun intended) In addition, I have memories of serving a hundred hungry men “prayer pancake breakfast” far to often in a dark church kitchen to imagine a kitchen like that as our own.
Designers Can Look At Before And After Photos All Day Long!
Last Friday we looked at some before and after photos of ahomebeing updated to go to market. We received several emails, and comments on how you like to look at these transformations. Designers are no different. We may indeed be a little obsessed with work by fellow designers. Good design, like the one we are sharing today from 2014, is always inspiring.
Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor. With the Easter holiday coming up this week, let’s look at this dining room shared viahouse beautiful . At first glance we see the amazing lacquered walls. With a closer look, we also see all of the carefully chosen details that make this room so attractive.
The spring real estate season is fast approaching and your buyer is scrolling thru listings right now. Yes, this is often the best time to place a house on the market. However, it can also be the most competitive time and your home has to appeal to a buyer quickly. Real estate agents have a standard list of what to do to prepare a home for sale. Our design firm has assisted clients buying, and selling, homes for too many years to count. Join us, this Friday, as we show you our Favorite way to market a home!
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!
Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor. This week let’s look at this bunk room shared via homeswelove. At first glance we see a sea of blue and white. With a closer look, we also see so many other welcoming details!
