An open concept floor plan is great for some families. You can see from the front to the back of the home, and the space looks bigger at a glance. But before you grab a sledge hammer and remove a wall, it’s worth taking a look at some of the downsides. We are seeing a return to structure and divided spaces in our homes- especially with a lot of us still wanting to work from home. A dedicated space for each person to work or study is a must! Have you ever sat down to read a good book only to hear the television from one end of the room, the blender going at the other, and thought you might lose ..read more

Marital bliss? 3 Principles We Follow When Designing Rooms for Couples with Different Tastes
Judith Taylor Interior Design Blog
by Judith Taylor
1M ago
Couples rarely agree on everything, but there are fewer things that widen the marital divide than trying to agree on home furnishings when disparate tastes clash. Who doesn’t recall the famous wagon wheel coffee table scene from When Harry Met Sally? Note to many: Man caves serve a peace-keeping role in the saving of a marriage by providing a conflict-free place for them to have their say. Blending styles can yield the most interesting and eclectic spaces, but not all styles complement each other well. (Not sure of your styles? Be sure to take our style quiz.)

You can read about our sponsors to see some of the products that caught my eye, and a few more here.

My first trip to KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) was an eyeful! We started the day with our comfy shoes on, and for a good reason! There was so much to see, and we walked all day but it was worth it! KBIS is full of innovative, striking, beautiful products and sometimes downright silly items, but that’s how the design process works.  KBIS showcases the latest and greatest, and then product developers take input from the industry and inspiration from wherever it strikes and brainstorm new ideas. From there, the more practical items trickle down to the general market for use, while ot ..read more

Design trends come and go; as a rule, interior designers aim to steer clients clear of them. But it is still good to know the trends, so we don’t have our clients buy into a quickly fading look. After all, when trends begin to gain traction and hit magazines and retail stores, they’ve already been around for several seasons (or more).  Those inside the industry are already seeing the next big thing!  But trends aside, when significant shifts in home décor start to catch our eye, we sit up and take notice. Take a look at five exciting trends in 2023… 1. Bold Florals Boucle (the warm n ..read more

The Top 3 Frequent Floor Plan Missteps Made in New Builds

Whether you are breaking ground for a new home, planning an addition, or simply renovating, architects, designers, and contractors play a vital role in any successful new build.

Your designer guides the layout to ensure you build a liveable space to meet your daily needs. Then your contractor schedules trades and leads the build to the finish line.  These three key professionals provide the triad of a successful team. Without them, you may find yourse ..read more

The holiday season puts me in the mood to celebrate! There’s really nothing more special than celebrating the joy of the season with the people in my life. Before the gifts are open, I love the excitement that fills the air as I await their reactions to the gift I thoughtfully selected for them.  The earliest Christmas I can recall was when I was five years old.

I headed downstairs on those hand-polished oak floors, and hoping no one was looking, I would climb up on the banister and slide down, trusting that the ..read more
