The Ewing Family Kitchen | A Dream Come True

One thing you need to know about Debbie Ewing is that she has been a lifetime cook. Since the age of ten, she has invested a lot of time in the kitchen, baking and preparing food for the friends and family she loves so dearly. Debbie recalled, “My mom let me cook and taught me to do things early. Of my 65 years probably 55 have been cooking.”  Knowing that, it only makes sense that such an avid cook and baker would have big dreams for her kitchen.

All About Modern Farmhouse

What’s not to love about Chip and Joanna Gaines? Not only are they are they an adorable couple with big hearts, they are masters of the Modern Farmhouse style. Like us, you may tune into their popular HGTV show, Fixer Upper, and watch them transform the most lack-luster homes into spectacular works of craftsmanship. They are a key reason why the Modern Farmhouse style has recently taken off and become a popular theme on Pinterest boards and Instagram accounts. This power couple seems to have an affinity for making spaces come alive in this welcoming and warm style.

 

Sometimes it can be hard to describe a visual design concept like the Modern Farmhouse. We decided to check with our designer, Sara, to hear in her own words how she explains it to others:   Continue reading “All About Modern Farmhouse”

Bathroom Design Trends for 2017

Our designer, Sara, loves keeping up with new trends in building and remodeling. Being able to incorporate fresh ideas allows us to innovate and create timeless spaces that you are sure to love. We took a look at emerging trends in bathroom design for 2017 and want to share some of those with you.

The bathroom is often an overlooked part of the home. They aren’t a social hub like the kitchen or a sanctuary like the bedroom, but a well-designed bathroom is a vital part of any home. It serves as a place to prepare for daily challenges as well as a refuge after a long day. Whether it’s a large master bath or a half-bath for guests, there’s endless design possibilities.

2017 has brought bold, interesting developments to the industry. Some of the trends we are seeing within bathrooms parallel design trends seen within kitchens. Whether your dream bathroom is minimally adorned or ornate with luxurious amenities, these new trends should give you plenty to think about for your next remodel:
