Floating desks

A dark seafoam green wall color sets a calm look for this office nook set up. The floating desk features a concrete tabletop above two white drawers. Above the workspace, wood floating shelves match the untreated wood finish of the cork board frame. Black and white text photography covers the board for a decorative twist.



Pair a small desk with a stool you can perch on when you need a break from standing, and add a few other shelves if you need room for storage.



Pop Color Wall

Choosing to paint one wall in a different color can make your room more interesting. You can really make a statement in any room, using your favorite color.



Black paint that can transform wall surfaces into creative chalkboards. Use on small sections above a wall desk or floating shelf to create a workspace without losing a whole room.





Try a beautiful wallpaper on one of the walls to give an extra charm to your home office.



Under The Stairs

You don’t need more than a few square feet to create a home office so look to that triangular niche as a place to create one in your home.



Built In Shelves

Accessorizing built-in bookcases is an art. Stacks of books, a collection of pottery and some framed prints.



Painting your built-ins to match other key design elements, such as fabric, can really make a beautiful statement.



Whatever type of work you do, it’s easy to combine professionalism and stylish details in your home office design. We hope these home office ideas have given you some inspiration to get you started!

Choosing Colors For Your Bathroom

The bathroom is the hardest room in a home to choose colors for because most of the time, there is no natural light and it has the worst lighting in the home. Dangerous combination for choosing paint colors! If you’re lucky and have tons of natural light, you can try new colors and have so many more color options. However, for those of us without any natural light, we recommend going straight to some of the tried and true colors that the builders and designers seem to use over and over because they have a history of working well. The best place to start in choosing bathroom colors is your flooring and countertops. If you’re doing marble or something similar in your tile, picking up on either the darkest or lightest color of the veining really can make a bathroom pop.

Classic Style Condo

To have a strong contrast in a bathroom you can have a dark or light color on the wall and then doing the opposite of the wall on the cabinets (lighter or darker).


Another trick to ensure that your cabinet colors are the exact same undertone as your wall color is to use the same paint card. For instance, you can use either the lightest or second lightest color on the card for the walls and use the darkest or second darkest color on the same card for the cabinets. This is a really easy way to ensure that the colors will really work well together.

The Benefits of Wainscoting

Is your house in need of something more sophisticated? Dress up plain walls with stylish trims that guards against scuffs and scratches. Wainscoting is particularly well suited to rooms that take a lot of wear and tear. Besides protection, it will also give an elegant armor for your walls. Using a combination of chair rail, trim and moldings, wainscoting typically runs horizontally along the lower portion of a wall. You can use wainscoting on entries, stairs and hallways, eating areas, family rooms and dens, baths, kids’ rooms. With many options for finishing and design, this style of molding presents countless possibilities for individualizing and adding value to your home.

Get inspired with these pictures and let us know which room in your house would you decorate with wainscoting.

Types of Wainscoting

Shadow Boxes: Composed of stained or painted trim pieces, shadow boxes are a series of horizontal frames or boxes along the bottom portion of a wall, topped by chair rail and bordered by baseboard on the bottom.

Panel Molding: At a basic level, panel molding is similar to shadow boxes, except that it is composed of panels that are actually recessed behind substantial frame pieces. The artistry and craftsmanship of panel molding is superior, and their quality of depth and sophistication is greater.





Beadboard: This type of wainscoting uses panels with symmetrical vertical grooves giving a warm look to your room. Beadboard is the easiest form of wainscoting to install.

Fireplace Makeover

We are so excited to share this amazing Fireplace makeover project. Check out these before and after pictures. Using the stones to frame your fireplace draws the eye to the texture. The mantel is a good counterpoint to the stone surround and provides ample display space for an array of items if desired. With the lighter facade, the fireplace no longer dominates the room but instead sets the tone for a more cheerful family room.
