Ginger Jar Style

Ginger Jar Style

Ginger jars are popular in the design world right now. They were all over High Point Market in April and we loved the different ways they were styled. Often, you will see them arranged in a collection of various sizes and shapes. They make great focal points in entries, or on dining sideboards. Most are blue and white, but the jar’s pattern varies to lend itself to different design styles. House Beautiful Tobi Fairley Using a traditional element in a new way, is a great way to transition older pieces into your style today. Blue and white is classic and will blend with several of today’s popular color schemes. It’s fun to use them in unexpected ways, such as a flower vase, utensil holder, indoor planter, get creative!

The Importance of Real Estate Staging

The Importance of Real Estate Staging

By Lindsay Miller  One of my co-designers, Karen Kerns and I have been chosen to partially stage 4 available units at Sanctuary by the Sea in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. When the building was built, the developer kept a few units as investment properties, all of which have sat on the market for quite some time. When we talked with realtors and prospective clients, we realized the reason they weren’t getting the attention they deserved was the fact that they were a spatial furniture challenge. Most of the rooms are HUGE, and the average person can’t figure out how to lay out their furniture in such a large space. A small-scale sofa and pair of chairs gets swallowed in a 20’x30′ open concept living room. So, we were hired to furnish those “problem areas” to help prospective buyers really see the potential of each unit. It’s a night and day difference to see how the furniture makes the unit feel so much more homey and lived-in. A buyer can really envision themselves living there.
