Do you ever tend to flock towards a certain type of style. Maybe you always fall in admiration with a long sleeve red dress, or those bright colored tennis shoes, or even the champaign colored cars. Well, for me it's wood in a home or office space. It looks clean, organic, it's easy to work with and walk on, and most importantly a timeless material for design. As an Interior Designer I am always on the lookout for the subtle changes in design trends, that may lead into something big and truly beautiful. Recently the look I've been seeing, more and more, is wood (on floors, with cabinets, as countertops, chairs...etc), with black and white pairs (used as furniture, decor, backsplashes...etc). So today I bring to you some images, that I love, of this classic trend.
Is this trend something you love, something that you could use, or maybe it's something that inspires your for your next DIY project? Always keep in mind, if you need help with your next black, white and wood DIY project be sure to contact me, I would love to help beautify your space!
At our house, my husband and I are consistently having guests over, because we love it! We love having people, that we love, in our home. The spirits are high, everyone gets a chance to get to know each other a little better, and you get to share a slice of what your home life may be on a regular day (no matter how crazy that may be). However, there is a major turn-off to having guests over, and that's preparing your house to look guest worthy, a.k.a. clean.
Over the past two years, my husband and I have lived in a small 700 square foot apartment, one bedroom and one bath (luckily it's a mostly open floor plan). So, I have acquired some tools and furniture pieces that help me easily store, hide, and prepare slowly for my guests. Ideally, I have a mostly clean house over the week, and I just have to run around the house like a mad woman for about a half hour to find the little things I'd been putting off.
