We all know lighting is important for seeing and doing things in general. But did you know there are three basic types of lighting?
For many of us, Halloween was and is a fun time. Adding a few decorations makes it that much more special.
Like many of you, I, also like to do some fall decorating. I don’t go over the top with what I do, but rather add to enhance what I already have. Luckily, my design palette already has the rich, warm colors of the fall.
Quite a few years ago I met a client who wanted to decorate her new condo. She was very determined with the type of style and color palette desired. That’s usually a good thing and can sometimes be half the battle. Not this time. She spent countless hours watching various design shows looking for style, colors and even lead times and budgets.
No matter where or what we call home, we all deserve a peaceful place to relax and recharge. This just happens to be a one bedroom condo.
A few years ago I was sent to Albuquerque to help a client with a new home. With that location came the usual design style. Stucco and adobe style fireplaces everywhere.
