:: Take Notes From The Cabin ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Rustic living room in a cabinIt’s winter time and we know what that means! It means playing in the snow, gathering around the fireplace, and getting cozy in the cabin! At least that’s what we like to dream of because we really don’t have winter here in Southern California. Maybe some rain, but that’s about as winter as it gets for us. Since there isn’t much snow and winter is rather tame here, all we can do is dream of it! It does get cold for us Californians and that brings up one design tip that is directly inspired by cabins. Decorate and prepare for the cold!

That means extra blankets, cozy pillows and all the cottage feels you find in a cabin! Cabins always have extra ways to keep you warm. Whether it be a cute nook that gets direct sunlight or a sofa with blankets ready to battle the cold, you’re always prepared. Take this idea and use it in your home this winter! It doesn’t have to snow where you are to be influenced by the cabin life, but if it does than that’s one more reason to be prepared!

Take a look at beautiful cabin spaces! Do you have any pictures you’d like to share with us? Post a comment with a link, post it on our facebook page or just email us! We’d love to see some cabins you really adore!

Tuesday Tips

A coastal living room with fun, electic decorThe living room is an essential room in every home. It gets used daily and is often one of the most seen rooms in the house. That means design in the living room is crucial. One way to ensure design success in the living room is to properly anchor the room. Anchoring is just a fancy term that refers to pulling the room together and there are many ways to anchor a room. One of the most known ways to anchor a room is to use a rug, or rugs, but one of the beautiful things about design is how there are more than one way to do things.

One of the best way to anchor a room using furniture is to use a neutral colored sofa and matching chairs. There are two reason why they should be neutral colored and these pieces specifically. First, these pieces in neutral colors are important because they are going to be large pieces that every living room needs. They will take up space and will stand out if they are a bright, loud color. Second, the neutral colors allow you to build, layer and design on top of them. Set bright red pillows on the sofa to match the red striped rug you lay or the red side table you set in between your neutral colored chairs.

By using these pieces and neutral colors it allows the eyes to see them, but not fixate on them and move onto the more important design elements of the living room. Also, if you have the space, you can use two neutral colored sofas to anchor the space and now your chair options are as open as the color palette you choose.

We’ve gathered a few images to give you a visual of what we’re talking about. Each image shows a beautiful, coastal living room that is anchored by furniture. These spaces are anchored by furniture and allow the designer to decorate the rest of the room as they please. Have a look, take notes and be inspired to try this technique in your home.

What’s Trending Wednesday

coastal living coastal staircase home built in storage stairsThe staircase, like the bathroom, can often be overlooked and forgotten. Don’t waste that space! It can be a tricky space because it’s not the easiest to design. You mostly have walls, a small shelf space of sorts and a little floor space at the bottom to work with, but that’s okay! A lot can be done in that small amount of space! There’s no need to limit yourself. Plus we can’t forget about the stairs themselves. We can use stair runners, wood or even tiles to decorate them giving us even more options.

Check out some of these staircases to find out what other people/designers are doing and to get some inspiration! Apply what you like to your home.
