Get The Look: Building A Home Office That Won’t Look Out Of Place In Your Living Room

More and more these days, many of us are working from home some of the time, and some are working from home nearly all the time. But if you don’t have a spare room to dedicate to a full-sized home office, it can be a real challenge to find a spot to set up your […]

Build A Picture-Perfect Designer Bedding Set For Your Master Bedroom

If you’ve ever seen a really gorgeously made bed in a magazine spread or on your Pinterest dash, chances are you’ve wondered the same thing I have: What’s the difference between the way I make my bed in the morning and the way they do it? Other than the obvious answer (not being in a big rush […]

2019 Bathroom Trends: Getting A Relaxed, Earthy Feel With Natural Wood Bathroom Vanities

Luxurious bathrooms have become something of a haven from daily life – a spot to slow down, relax, and unplug for a little while. Recently, bathroom design has started to reflect that in an interesting way: by shifting to earthier, more natural designs. While white and gray have reigned supreme for the past few years, […]

Making A Case For Pre-Made Bathroom Vanities (And Why You Might Not Need Any Custom Cabinetry)

So you want to build your dream bathroom. The first step is hiring a guy to build all your dream bathroom furniture, right? The short answer is: not necessarily.

Get The Look: Converting A Cramped Kitchenette Into A Stylish Spot To Entertain

Decorating a small space is never fun, especially when it’s a space that sees a lot of use, like the kitchen. Galley kitchens are notoriously bad, because they’re both small and cramped, and much more enclosed than you typically want for a contemporary kitchen. But just because you have a small space doesn’t mean you’re […]

Upgrade To A Bathroom Vanity With An Outlet And Streamline Your Morning Routine

I’ve seen a lot of cool high-tech bathrooms: ones with waterproof TVs built into the showers, stereo systems built into the toilets, even mirrors that will tell you the weather.

Building A Better Reading Nook: Illuminate Your Space With Swing Arm Lighting

Choosing The Right Vanity For Your Master Bathroom: Getting To Know Your Options

Finding the perfect bathroom vanity for your master bathroom isn’t an exact science. After all, not all bathrooms are created equal, and every couple is different. Whether you have overlapping morning routines or strictly separate bathroom schedules, your needs are going to be different, and the bathroom vanity you choose should reflect that. The first […]

Get The Look: Building A Formal Dining Room With A Posh Contemporary Feel

Dining rooms occupy a somewhat odd space in the contemporary interior design world. In terms of popularity, they’ve long since lost to open floorplan kitchens and greatrooms, which means these days a good dining room is rarely going to be a design spotlight. But the reality is, lots of us still have dining rooms, which means […]

Luxury Pet Beds – Combining Comfort For Your Pet With Style For Your Living Space

Finding a decent pet bed isn’t hard. In fact, you can find basic, mat- or cushion-style pet beds at basically any pet store or megamart. But finding one that both you and your pet can appreciate might be a little more complicated. Conventional pet beds take up a lot of floor space and border on […]
