A Modern Chair I Love: The Steltman

Jeff and I have a lot of art, design and architecture books, we just love reading and collecting them! Most of the books are in the den at the front of our house, it's very cozy and we love spending time in there!

Artist I Love: Meghan Shimek

Before and After Home Bar + 5 Bar Design Tips

I am slightly addicted to how extreme before and afters can get, aren't you? When I meet with a new client and their home is really ugly but I see the potential I start to salivate because I know we are in for some fun. This client has a home in a location they LOVE, but they did not like the interior. To put it mildly, the kitchen and bar spaces were poorly designed. Not [...]

I Love Round Dining Tables!

We have had a total of four different dining tables in our fifteen years of marriage! A couple were hand-me-downs from family, one was a large rectangular mission style table with a bench and our latest is an antique I hunted and hunted for! Three of our tables have been round and I have to say, it's my favorite shape! I adore this room by Lee Kelinhelter, great mix of modern and traditional! We love our [...]
