Go Bold Not Boring!

Light-colored walls don’t have to be boring! Think of it as a clean slate!  From chic to the thoroughly modern, a neutral space works with almost any style.

We can each express ourselves through our decorating choices and adding life to a room means bold accessories!

Start with the flooring and build the decor around it. Beginning with the floor gives you a chance to build a space piece by piece.  Accessorizing with bold colors such as orange, red and green will bring the room to life.  Incorporating colors using bedding, pillows, furniture and lamps will make the room dramatic and intriguing. Don’t forget to include different types of fabrics when adding pillows and window coverings.

Quoizel Field Trip to Innovative Cree Factory

 A few of the design team members including Todd Phillips, Peter Cox, Guillermo Kuwae, two college interns and Southeast salesperson Jeff Norris went on a field trip to Cree, Inc.  Since 1987, Cree has been a market-leading innovator of lighting products, LED (Light Emitting Diodes) components, and semiconductor products for power and radio-frequency (RF) applications.  Their headquarters is located in Durham, NC and Cree employs nearly 6,000 people worldwide.

They were very impressed with the factory and spent hours touring the facility where they saw the making of the diodes.  The state-of-the-art machinery is very sensitive; therefore, all employees and guests are required to wear the surgical scrubs and masks so that the area stays as sterile as possible.
