Charlotte, North Carolina, ranks as the country’s fastest growing metro area and is particularly attractive to millennials. The skyline is jammed with soaring steel and glass, sports arenas, and luxury condos, but if you take the time to explore, you can still find pockets of the city’s long and storied history. On a visit this past weekend to the Queen City, we dropped in on ColsenKeane, a custom leather goods shop close to the bustle of downtown. Owners Scott and Taryn Hofert purchased the 61-year-old building last year for their growing business. We took a tour of the space with director of operations Bay Robinson and 7-week-old Elliott, the shop pup. ... Read More

When Marjorie and her husband Michael began a guest bathroom renovation, they decided to buck the neighborhood trends and embrace their love of all things nautical. “We live on the south shore of Long Island, about five miles from the beach. Every single house looks exactly the same with vinyl siding, the same fencing, and the same windows,” Marjorie says. “Everything about our home renovation goes against the grain. We are definitely ‘that house’ on the block!” Their home features many farmhouse elements such as white board-and-batten siding but with black details and nautical accents throughout. ... Read More

Modern Farmhouse Journey | The Power of Color Temperature
Last April, we introduced Whitney in this blog post as she began sharing her story of building a mid century modern farmhouse in Vermont. Today, Whitney discusses a powerful lesson learned about color and lighting in her new powder room. As my husband, Peter, and I dove into the construction of our mountain-top farmhouse, we faced steep learning curves along the way. We discovered that a clear vision for layout and décor is no guarantee when it comes to what materials arrive on your doorstep. Even with countless hours of research, endless Pinterest board comparisons, Houzz inspiration hunting, and precise planning, you just can’t foresee everything until the project... Read More

How To | Choose Lighting to Complement Patterned Elements
When faced with a blank palette, most people consider adding color to enliven a space. But throwing a vibrant texture or pattern into the mix can take a room from routine to remarkable in short order.

The center of the space is anchored by a 20″ Outback Flush Mount Pendant in beautiful Teal. ... Read More
