High Point Market is an excellent way to get to see the latest high-end furniture designs up close and personal in a setting that they’re meant to be showcased.

Celebrity Style: Living Rooms

by Jon Peters
Feature

One of my all-time favorite shows was MTV Cribs.  There’s just nothing more enticing to me than having a peek inside the home of celebrities.  What was so great about Cribs was that on each episode, three different celebrity actors, musicians or athletes would all give MTV’s cameras a personally curated tour of their homes.  Blame it on the paparazzi or the “Bling Ring”, but ever since you … { Continue Reading }

Colorful Kitchen Cabinetry

Before I found my awesome new apartment, I toured a lot of older buildings and apartments that were in serious need of a facelift and some renovations.   As a fan of repurposing rather than throwing away and buying new, I feel proud of the fact that I can typically spot a diamond in the rough.  Virtually every kitchen that I toured lacked a refrigerator from this decade, had never seen a … { Continue Reading }

Design Trend: Black Windows

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to makeover your home and bring some major curb appeal to your exterior, why not paint your window trim black? The window mullions, otherwise known as the lines between the frame which separates the panes of glass in the window, create an optical effect which would typically surprise most people.  According to interior designer Kara Mann, “When you … { Continue Reading }

It’s a coastal island town just above Georgia full of beautiful beach homes on stilts with elaborate stairways and picturesque views.  It’s short vacations like this that make me want to go on an extended holiday to relax and enjoy for a longer period of time.  Weekend trips are … { Continue Reading }
