Modern Pendants Offer Blend of Rustic Style with Contemporary Detailing

Style Me Sunday: Rustic and Utilitarian Unite for Fall Trends
With fall trend forecasts spreading like wildfire, we can’t help but ponder the history behind them. Words like “rustic” and “utilitarian” are commonplace influences on the list — but why? The utilitarian lifestyle emphasizes the pursuit of function and happiness. It makes sense that surrounding ourselves with purpose-filled objects inspire us to be more industrious.

Charles Baxter wittily noted, “Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream.” We couldn’t agree more! There’s little more refreshing and comforting than a chilly bowl of ice cream on a warm spring afternoon. With the summer heat wave on the cusp (well, at least for us Floridians!) the very thought of ice cream makes our mouths water. So, why not decorate with fresh home decor that remind us of one of our favorite desserts? ... Read More

Style Me Sunday: Shabby Chic Bathroom Retreat
The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience.

Featured Customer | Vintage Colors of Jadite and Pink Form Palette for Kitchen Remodel
The old saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home was surely coined in Jana’s house. Our Featured Customer built her home on a cattle ranch and hay farm in Eastern Oregon 22 years ago. At the time, she had three children and her kitchen seemed huge. “Then our family grew to seven children, four of which are married now, and we will soon have eight grandchildren,” Jana says. “We outgrew the kitchen years ago, but it took us awhile to decide to remodel.” The family spends many hours every day in the kitchen. Winters are long in Oregon and there is a cozy fireplace at one end of the room. And summers are busy with haying seven days a... Read More
