Creating an entryway appeal

entryway inspirationIt’s Summer! And design can include creating a new look at your front door. At this home, the dark green front door was painted a soft blue while the bare wooden bench to the left was painted a deeper blue. The addition of a jute rug and three ceramic pots (in scale with the entry) filled with lots of texture and a dash of color give a welcoming feel. Is the entry to your home inviting and friendly?

New Refrigerators: What will they think of next? This summer GE launched their all new Café Series Energy Star French Door Refrigerator with a Hot Water Dispenser! We are used to access to cold water on the door and now GE makes it easy to have hot water on the door! Let me know what you think? Is this going to take off and be adapted by other manufacturers?


When we start working on the design of a remodel project one of our first questions is, “What do you want the focal point to be?”. With this kitchen remodel the client’s answer was, “the view”. With enlarged windows in this all new kitchen, the view definitely eye candy!
