What’s Trending Wednesday
We love decorating and designing the perfect home to enjoy. Often we aren’t the only ones in the house. We have our best friends living right along side us! We know dogs aren’t the pickiest, but when they choose that one cozy spot to lay down then you’ve got the doggy approval.
We all spend so much time, effort and hard work on our homes that it’s nice to see all appreciating it and enjoying it. Don’t forget about those indoor/outdoor rugs! They may come in handy when the dirty dogs trots in. Just take the rug out and wash them both down!
Show some love to your beloved dogs and these ones! Check them out enjoying the coastal home decor!
What is flow? Flow is the ease of movement through a space. It means we aren’t tripping over ottomans, weaving betweens chairs or scooting around coffee tables when we try to move through a living room.
There is no reason your living room should not flow.
If it does not flow it typically means one of two things. First, there’s just too much stuff. Get rid of what is unnecessary. Store it, sell it or donate it. Second, you didn’t plan. You should always know your measurements. Know the measurements of the space, the furniture you’re trying to put in the space and the negative space.
Negative space is the area you actually live in. It’s the space between the coffee table and sofa where your legs go. It’s the space that you use to float that pouf between your chairs and sofa. When you plan the space for actual room to function and live in you will find the flow throughout the space.

We love being outside during summer time and in Southern California we try to find any excuse to get outdoors. That means we’re going to want to get the family outside and enjoy dinner as much as possible. Why wouldn’t we?
It should be no surprise that a summer home trend would be all about outdoor dining. The weather’s right, the food is warm and the good times are plenty. It’s the perfect combination for all to enjoy. Plus it’s an easy way to entertain any guests coming over. Set up shop outside and keep the mess to a minimum and the laughter to a maximum.
We grabbed a couple photos to show you what others are doing outside, but don’t just sit here and wish you could do this! Make it happen and bring your families dinner outdoors tonight!
A mirror is a great piece to add to your entryway or a vignette. They can help bring light to the space and add a different look than the usual wall art. To take it up a design notch, try incorporating a round mirror. They offer a unique look and style that the typical mirror cannot.
People often ask, what are the rules to hanging mirrors or artwork? What are the measurements? Let us sum it up quickly and easily for you guys:
1. The mirror or artwork should be two-thirds (2/3) or three-fourths (3/4) as wide as the side console. Get out those rulers and start measuring!
2. If you are hanging a mirror or artwork above a side console or furniture you typically hang it 3-8 inches above the furniture. This is a general height that can be adjusted to your liking and will depend on how large or small the piece you are hanging is.
3. If you are hanging a mirror or piece of artwork on a wall on its own, depending on the size of the piece being hung, you typically hang it 55-65 inches above the floor. The general measurement depends on how high the wall is and what is to be hung.
These measurements are of course general guidelines that will get you started on your designing you space. At the end of the day, it’s your mirror or artwork being hung so do what you think looks best. If you want your art to bigger than your side console than be our guest. It is your home after all.
I know we got lost in the measurements, but a round mirror is a fun piece to add to you home. Check out these round mirrors to get inspired by the look and play with the idea of one hanging in your home.
