    Common Design Mistakes to Avoid Part 1 | Simple Fixes and Ideas

    Common Design Mistakes to Avoid Part 1 | Simple Fixes and Ideas

    Today we have Cory as the MC and we’re going to be talking about “party fouls,” or common design mistakes. We start out talking about arch niches, which many home builders will install in homes, but they almost always do it wrong. Another thing people often get wrong is their window treatments, where they put one single curtain on either side of the window and end up just looking like a wall scarf. We want them to feel very full and cover your window with gusto and fullness. We talk about rugs and the sizes that people tend to get, such as 8x10, because they think it’ll be big enough, but rarely is that the right size for your main areas. You’ll want a 9x12 to go under your furniture and coffee table in the front room. Some other things to avoid are brass kitchen faucets and vessel sink faucets, which are just impractical because they make cleaning a little harder and are hard to reach for shorter people/kids.

    “It’s a hard thing to get really right and I think that like reclaimed wood –not really like reclaimed wood, but like that I think it’s had its time in the sun and everybody’s done with that movement, and we're just integrating everything. Integrating the sinks under the surfaces, we’re integrating the hardware. That really beautiful, built-in, well made look is what everybody’s wanting right now.” 28:25

    The Art of Styling with Aren Muse | The Final Layer

    The Art of Styling with Aren Muse | The Final Layer

    In this episode we have with us design artist Aren Muse, who has his own team of stylists and a great amount of experience and knowledge in styling that he shares with us today. We start off talking about the finishing touches in a room and how to accessorize, mainly with a fireplace and tables. We discuss the different greenery we want, the types of books we should put out on the coffee table, and then the candles that will go well as an accessory for your coffee table or side tables. Try to keep things balanced because if you use too much of one texture, such as marble for example, it will no longer be special. Books typically have a less glossy, flashy look under their cover, so a way to improve the look of your books is to remove the jacket, giving them a more dark and handsome look.

    “Stuff that they wouldn’t normally make or couldn’t put on the rack, but it is absolutely editorial and extraordinary. And that is the work that we are trying to create is the more unexpected we can, but still believable, useful, and tell the story of the homeowner, but don’t do it in a way that everyone else is doing it.” 24:20

    Moulding & Millwork | The Icing On the Cake

    Moulding & Millwork | The Icing On the Cake

    In this episode, we talk about “The icing on the cake" (as Jess would call it) a.k.a finish work and moulding. Finish work is baseboards, casing around your windows–it’s the paneling that people love and adore in your homes. We go over different styles you’ll find in various homes or buildings, such as coffered ceilings found often in libraries, or shiplap. You can also see various examples of finished work on our portfolio, such as Tiger Oak, House of Kennedy, etc. Another type of finish work we discuss is chair rail, which if done correctly can look great, but there are other styles that will create a look far from what we want if not done right.

    “I would say libraries, oftentimes you’ll see the coffered ceiling, which is also the work of a finish worker. They’ll create those boxed beams, and do that tic tac toe pattern that you guys have seen before on the ceiling and it’s got a lot of depth. Maybe it’s like 8-10 inches, even a foot deep coming down from the ceiling. That’s finish work.” 7:05

    Fresh Taste Making with Courtney Grow | Fashion to Interiors

    Today we have Courtney Grow with us, a fresh taste maker who we find sincere, genuine and believable in her quest to discover and share fashion in an accessible fresh way. We discuss ways you can get a more expensive look than your pocketbook might afford. The trick is, you have to be prepared with the elbow grease for the search and know the pieces you never want to get rid of are the ones with a story. Courtney says if you've created something that everybody agrees looks amazing, then you aren't doing it right and ought to try taking a risk and do something new.

    “I really like a worldly style. I like something that just looks like a person that has seen a lot and done a lot. I know that’s a very weird way to describe my personal style, but those are always kind of the words that I go to when I think about how I want to dress, or what I like about other people’s styles.” 8:40

    Styling with Crystal | Finding Beauty in Translucence

    Styling with Crystal | Finding Beauty in Translucence

    We had a listener reach out asking how to integrate the crystal and silver she has had around for years, so we decided to take that on today. In the grand millennial movement, styles have moved to a more casual look but we think you should show off your antiques and we talk about to tastefully pull that off. We talk about the quality of crystal and why it makes a difference and great places to showcase it. We suggest having a bowl of yummy candies out for family and guests who visit to create a nostalgic feeling every time they have that same candy elsewhere.

    “Kind of a pro tip is if you’re using something like an obelisk, which Sue is saying is non-directional so it looks good from every single side, like if you’re sticking them on a center hall table or even on a console, most people’s tendency would be to stack them so that they’re straight and their edges are parallel with the front of that table. The pro tip would be to maybe slightly throw those off a little bit. Maybe two are straight and the third one is thrown off on a diagonal.” 13:33
