Pillows Galore!

As we transition into Fall, we recommend changing out some of your decorating accessories to ring in the new season. New window panels, pillows and throws could help shift a room from a breezy, summery feel to a cozy, elegant Fall entertaining space. You would be surprised how much these small touches could change a space’s aesthetic. Our interior designers would like to share some fun, fabulous pics of throw pillows we found on a recent shopping trip! Not only are pillows one of the most fun decorating accessories to incorporate into a room; they also pack quite a bit of impact into a small surface area!

Not Your Average Laundry Room!

This laundry room is just one small part of an extensive project our #interior designers completed successfully. This Austin home is located in the beautiful Steiner Ranch subdivision –  As much as it may play only a supporting role to the overall interior design scheme, the laundry room still deserves a good dose of clever #interiordesign.

The simple color scheme in pure white and crisp green invokes a fresh, breezy feeling in the space. Using a bold splash of green on the countertops in a mundane space like a laundry room adds in an element of brightness and fun! The door to the adjacent hall was designed as an inconspicuous pocket door in order to save some space in this relatively narrow room. The design team, wanting to keep the laundry room a moisture resistant room, chose an understated and contemporary porcelain tile for the floor, and a stylish wood-like plank backsplash tile.

Grasscloth Wallcovering: Not Just For Beach Homes!

When you think grasscloth wallcovering you might picture a beach front property with wicker and bamboo furniture, Hawaiian print upholstery and pastel colors galore. However, a new trend for grasscloth is using it to add texture and contrast in a variety of interior design styles.

Ideas to add a pop of color to your home

Ever feel like your home needs a bit of new flare? New paint and adding few furniture pieces are great and affordable way to add new life to a room. Remember… don’t be afraid of trying a new color – paint is just paint, and can always be changed! Take a look at this bright orange wall. It adds a much needed color pop between the neutral colors.


Although a bold color adds that kick you may be looking for, don’t feel like you must go BOLD or go home! Whether it’s a bold orange or even a soft gray, paint can add that boost that you have been looking for. When paired with the right art, furniture and accessories, a softly painted room can be just as eye-catching.

For instance, take a look at this living room done in the lightest shade of gray. Even though the color is subdued, the rich carpet, bight lamp and detailed painting add the much needed pop to lift this room.
Look out for more ideas from us next week. In the meantime, let us know what you think. Have you added a pop to your home using paint or furniture? Share your photos and ideas  with us in comments below.
