Designer’s Desk: 7 Concepts of Wellness Design Every Homeowner Should Understand

The Time Has Come to Treat Our Homes as an Investment in our Wellness The era of COVID-19 has caused us to re-evaluate many aspects of our daily lives. Before the pandemic, the home was a place to recharge and enjoy time with our families. Now, for many of us, home is also our office, classroom, gym, and more. Suddenly, our home is expected to take on the characteristics of all these places. More than ever, we are blurring the lines between home, work, and leisure. What does this mean for our mental and physical wellbeing and how can we… Read More >

Designer’s Desk: Kitchen Trends for Today and Tomorrow

Kitchens are the most popular rooms to remodel and can be the most expensive. Considering the level of investment that goes into remodeling a kitchen, every little detail can feel like a monumental decision. Everyone wants their new space to be on trend, but nobody wants it to appear dated 5 or 10 years down the road. Here are a few kitchen trends that are not going anywhere any time soon. Hardwood Floors Especially in homes that already have hardwood throughout, we are often ripping out cold, hard tile flooring in the kitchen and replacing it with hardwood to blend… Read More >

Designer’s Desk: Hidden Gems

Spanish Sanctuary I’m not the only one out there who enjoys browsing Zillow and fantasizing about my dream home. But what’s more interesting to me than looking at perfect, turn-key homes, is hunting for a diamond in the rough, just waiting for its true potential to be revealed. For this blog, I decided to pick a city at random, and see what hidden gem I could uncover.  This week, I found the perfect Spanish sanctuary. This one immediately caught my eye: From the street view, this house has a lot going for it already. Built in the early 1900s, this… Read More >

Designer’s Desk: How do you know if a house has good bones?

New construction has its appeal, but the character and charm of an old home is something that can’t be replicated. However, when it comes to real estate listings, phrases like “full of character” can be code for a host of alarming issues. If you’re considering purchasing an older home, it’s important to be able to identify red flags on your own because that “charming 3 bedroom in need of some TLC” may actually be a money pit. I consider myself fortunate because fixing up older homes is not just my passion, it’s also my profession. As such, I have a… Read More >

Designer’s Desk: Nine Principles of Design

When we think of designers, we tend to envision creative innovators who think outside the box and love breaking convention. All of this is true of a great designer, but beneath our seemingly idiosyncratic ideas is a fundamental set of guidelines making it all work. These guidelines are called the Principles of Design. In last month’s blog, we touched on two principles: balance and proportion. In this article, I will talk about those in greater detail, as well as seven other principles of home design. Balance The distribution of the visual weight of objects, colors, texture and space. These elements… Read More >

Designer’s Desk: Know Bad Design When You See It

Gawking at ugly houses is a favorite pastime of mine. Pointing out design flaws in homes around me can be exasperating for my friends and family. “Why don’t you point out something you like for once?” I’m often asked. Because that’s not as much fun! With good design there is very little to critique. I can simply admire, at ease with the feeling of contentment when all elements are working together in perfect harmony. The concept of beauty is subjective. However, there are some homes that are objectively ugly. An ugly home is one that is not thoughtfully designed, with… Read More >
