In Good Taste: Eric Piasecki Photography

Beautiful homes and gorgeous landscapes can be a lovely and soothing and fabulous as can be. But, captured from the wrong angle, in the wrong light or… well… by the the wrong person, even the most amazing designs can fall flat. That’s one of the reasons that we were so enamored of Eric Piasecki Photography right from the start. He is an expert at casting every design in the right light, making everything he photographs seem in perfectly good taste. We think his work speaks for itself!

Organizing Our Homes for the Holidays

Remodelista Organizing home

We normally post about  organization on New Year’s. It seems like a great way to get a new year off to a fresh start. But, this year, we decided that maybe it makes more sense to get a jump on the organization before the holiday celebrating commences.

Remodelista Organizing home

With a little help from our friends Julie and Margot’s new book, Remodelista: The Organized Homewe can’t wait to get started!

Who doesn’t want a closet perfectly color coordinated,

And a refrigerator so neat that you can actually see what is inside!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

I was just checking out some of my kitchen cabinets, you know, the ones that were so sparse, spare and compulsively organized a few months ago… And they’re already messy again!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

I mean, I’ll be honest. My drawer is never going to look like that. One pair of scissors is never going to cut it in our apple-corer, cheese-grater, pineapple-corer, every-gadget-known-to-man kitchen. But this gives me something to strive for at least!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

This morning I’ll be at it again with help from Remodelista: The Organized Home, sorting and storing the strays that accumulated over the weekend. But, in the end, it will all be worth it. Because, when the clutter is gone and the lights are bright, there really isn’t a happier place than home!
Wishing you a happy in Monday in — of course — your happy place!

Things We Love: Steel Doors in Design

McGill Design Group

 

Doors and windows are one of those things that are so crucial to the feel of a house but are quite often overlooked.

steel doors

Sometimes, we can go through them and look out of them many, many times a day and never give them a second thought.

When they’re as fabulous as these steel doors, though, the panes in your home become something truly

We usually think of steel as adding an industrial touch,

but, when used the right way, these steel doors and windows add an antiqued, lived-in feel to a home.

They are sleek, clean and uncluttered,

They add that all-important touch of black that every room needs,somehow seem to make the light pouring in seem even brighter,

and make a statement all their own, no window treatment required.

We could stare out any of these doors and windows all day long.
We hope your Thursday has room for a little daydreaming, whatever window you’re looking out. Thanks for stopping by!
