While I may not look like I am stepping off a runway on the daily, I love keeping tabs on the fashion industry. Haute couture and interior design have so much in common, so having an eye on the latest trends and colors is super important for a designer.
When you think about your home’s exterior design, front doors aren’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. We tend to think about front doors in terms of their practical purpose – to let guests in and out. But your front door is actually one of the most important elements of your home.
As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston is a place families from all over the world call home. The appeal of homes on large lots with gorgeous details and tons of room, has surprisingly, brought quite a few NYC and Manhattan transplants to the area. But when you think about moving and designing your new home on top of that, it can be so stressful!
One of the things I don’t think any home can have enough of is storage. Whether it’s a place to put away your kid’s toys, store extra pool towels, or display your fine china, all these items need to have a specific spot when they aren’t in use. And though it would be fabulous to have all this storage already built in, that’s not always the case.
Neutral colors like shades of white, cream and light brown are the most popular colors to use when painting your home. These tones work with any other color and don’t lend themselves to a specific design style. They’re subtle, timeless and provide the perfect background for any space.
