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.


Earn Extra Credit this School Year!

Whether you’re leaving for college or commuting this year, a new beginning is an exciting time for any student.

This time can seem overwhelming but being proactive and organized can make the transition for you and your child an easy one.  Moving day can be a very tiring and stressful day if you’re not ready. The more you do ahead of time, the less you will need to do that day!  Some helpful tips are: removing tags and packaging on bedding can help save time and alleviate excess trash, put the pillow cases and shams on the pillows ahead of time and don’t forget to bring a fan, large garbage bags, duct tape and scissors.


The weather wasn’t the only HOT thing in Dallas!

Quoizel introduced 145 new items in Dallas last week!  These included stunning additions to Quoizel’s Platinum Collection and the very popular Coastal Armour Outdoor Collection.  Also introduced were over 45 new bath items, 40 new portables and 50 new integrated LED items to name a few.

Hundreds of customers also enjoyed culinary delights, market-only promotions and a peek at Quoizel’s June 2016 Supplement which will be shipped out in a few weeks.

Congratulations to Quoizel for receiving the Market Choice Award for Best New Outdoor Fixture which President & CEO, Rick Seidman, graciously accepted.


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.


Making the Grade = Quoizel

New beginnings… whether it’s the first time away from home, the first day of high school or starting a new job, September will be here, and you want to be prepared!

Task lighting will help give direct light without distracting others. Designed to illuminate and define someone’s personal work space is a necessity for every college student. Great for that dorm room or home office, Quoizel’s portable lighting comes in multiple styles and finishes to compliment everyone’s style.
