Enviable Summer Entryways and Foyers

There are your "traditional" elements that no entry or foyer should be without - but shoe storage and a key tray don't necessarily make an entry way that makes you smile when you walk in the door.  Here are a few elements that do...

A little texture can go a long way!

You may hear designers talk about texture as one aspect that really makes or breaks a room. Visual texture, when done correctly, can transform a simple room into a unique eye catching space.

The brick walls, with wood floors, a comfy couch, and a woven rug all give you different textures that combined well together. Each one touches your senses in a different way but when brought together can create a truly unique feel.

Mixing wood, tile, and granite really makes this room feel that nostalgic sense of home with a modern twist of luxury.

There's something so unique about wood grain and mixing that with painted cabinets, glass, and stone really makes each item stand out!

Texture doesn't always have to come from major home upgrades. It can be as simple as adding wood to an already great cabinet and pairing it with wicker baskets and a fun rug. 

How do you use texture in your home?

Perfect Master Suites

For me, the perfect master suite is a combination of a beautiful, inviting bed, a serene and calming color palette, and an edited collection of meaningful personal touches (ie, no unnecessary clutter).

I'm really attracted to beds that serve as focal points - upholstered and poster are my favorites. A couple of sparsely used accent colors help give the room just a touch of energy.

Even though you spend most of your time in the bedroom in the dark, I do love a bedroom with large windows.
