Lighten & Brighten that Home Office!!

After a fun but active summer, it’s time to get the house back into order.  The kids are back in school and into a normal routine so now is a great time to tackle that home office!  A stylish but functional home office will make it a place where you want to work every day.

Creating a lighting scheme that successfully produces an environment that is easy to work in should be a top priority.  Not everyone will have this incredible view designed by Locati Architects & Interiors; however, bringing in as much natural light as you can by setting up your home office space near a wall with windows, will make you more productive to handle the tasks of the day.

Where’s Your Beach?

Whether you have a beach house or you want to create that relaxing feeling that a beach might bring to your home, take a look at how Fautt Homes of Alamo, CA brought the seashore indoors.

Using natural elements such as the white rocks and starfish  this Walnut Creek, California condo was transformed into this beautiful oasis.

Think Displays Don’t Matter…Think Again!

Looking to spruce up your space for spring?  You’re not the only one!

Many retailers have been updating displays in their showrooms with help from Quoizel’s own Jake Phillips. Great visual merchandising can spell the difference between customers who make multiple purchases and those who wander in and out of your shop empty-handed.  Therefore, it should be no surprise that Quoizel featured eight new merchandising displays at last month’s Dallas Market.  Many of their sales representatives will tell you that installing merchandise displays that properly showcase a store’s products will increase foot traffic and sales in your store.

New Year, New Trends for 2016!

Neutral colors will be everywhere you look, and according to Pantone the color trend for 2016 is rose quartz and serenity (soft pinks and blues) which will radiate a sense of order and peace. Simply White, Benjamin Moore’s color of the year, is very elegant and defined. Layered whites mixed with natural light add nuance and subtle beauty to a room. To add a bit more character, use different textures, geometric patterns and mixed metals that will all be trending in the upcoming months.

Bringing the outdoors in will continue to play a big role in homes. The Thornhill chandelier brings the form of nature to lighting with forest-like branches finished in a stark Marcado Black. In addition to having natural looking decor and greenery, welcome natural sunlight in with windows and sliding glass door systems that will allow easy access to the outdoors while adding beauty and style to any space. Outdoor living spaces and kitchens are the perfect place to relax alongside nature. They are a great addition to make your own backyard feel like a vacation spot all year long.
