Stairways that Inspire

Every corner of your home is a design opportunity just waiting to happen. From an untouched room, to a blank wall, to a window sill, these spots can always have a little extra TLC put into them. One section of your home that shouldn’t be neglected is your stairway. Often it’s the centrepiece of your home, or one of the first things people see when they enter, so it’s important to make sure your stairs reflect your design perspective. From the railing you choose, to the steps themselves, to the decor around it,  your stairway is a great place to have fun with the decor and express your own personal style. Here are some super chic stairways we found (and love!) for inspiration.

What’s New in Home Tech

Watching shows like the Jetsons is a funny experience in 2017. When the show was made in the 1960s technology wasn’t particularly advanced – colour TV was a big deal. The home technology presented in the show seemed like it was lightyears away, but actually, it’s happening in the present! Smart technology in every aspect of our lives has come to be a common occurrence. The newest in consumer electronics and technology was put on display at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, and the tech being presented was nothing short of awe inspiring. Here’s a look at some of the newest and sleekest available in home technology.

Holiday Place Setting Inspiration

When choosing decor for your holiday party you can go one of two ways. You can choose traditional accents, or try something totally new – it just depends what aesthetic and vibe you’re going for this year. Both are great in their own way. Traditional holiday decor is obviously classic, you can’t really go wrong. However, modern or quirky decor is a lot of fun and will mix things up. You’ll have to choose traditional vs. new for all aspects of your holiday decor from the tree to the wrapping to the table settings. To give you a head start we’ve put together a collection of lots of different holiday place settings to inspire you.

10 Entryways We Love

When you walk into a person’s home there are lots of clues to give away their design aesthetic or the overall vibe of their home. Something as simple as a welcome mat (or lack of) can completely reveal the homeowner’s personality, and thus the personality of their home. This is why putting thought into your entryway is so important. The entryway of your home is essentially the first impression you give your guests. It sets the tone for the space, and gives people a taste of what’s to come as they delve further into your home. Here are 10 entryways we found and fell in love with.
