The modern home is always evolving. It’s easy to get inspiration, but most homeowners don’t know how to start. When I speak to LSPS clients, most want to incorporate trending designs into their remodel. However, once we start visiting showrooms for materials, they sway from one concept to another. It’s easy to do so with a variety of possibilities in front of you. I always advise them to have a design in mind, whether it be traditional, transitional or contemporary. From there, it’s easy to mix and match materials for your room. For example, a contemporary design often consists of clean lines, a traditional design often features ornate details and a transitional design combines both worlds.  With a design in mind, one can move forward with design trends, such as...

Once all of the major elements of a design project are in place, it’s time to make the finishing touches. The details are inevitably what “sell” a design. Even if the project is yours to enjoy, the accessories, color schemes and other items of visual interest help make a space feel complete. What inevitably “pulls everything together” is different for every project, the personal tastes of the homeowner, and the style and context of the space. Continue reading
