Pro's Corner | Nautical Chandelier Adds Fun, Pool Vibe to Bath
We call it the renovation ripple effect. When you remodel one space then realize an adjoining space now looks rather old and tired in comparison. Such was the case in Scarsdale, New York, when a homeowner added a pool and outdoor entertaining space. The adjoining mudroom and bath, original to the home, was suddenly in dire need of an update. “Everything was ripped out including the tile, sink, stall shower, and toilet,” says Lisa Tessler of Link Interiors. “We started from scratch. We reinvented the bathroom and mudroom to reflect an outdoor pool/summer vibe. The goal was to bring the outside in with a cabana feel.” ... Read More

Capturing the Wow Factor with Minimalist Lighting

While minimalist styles of lighting have clean and simple lines, they can also be visually striking enough to make a statement. It’s the small details in these fixtures that provide the ultimate wow factor. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Barn Lights Offer Casual, Rustic Style
Sometimes you have to raise the roof. Not raise a ruckus, but literally raise the roof. That’s exactly what Jenny and her husband did when they tackled a gut renovation of their Millbrook, New York, home. The major renovation included an addition and rebuild of the second floor. The result is a stunning 6,500-square-foot modern farmhouse chock full of laid-back style. “We were going for a casual, rustic feel throughout with fixtures and finishes that still look good even as style trends change over time,” Jenny says. “Remodeling and design are hobbies that I love and I put together idea books on Houzz to design the spaces.” ...

With this information, Vanessa begins the design process. ... Read More
