Go Bananas With Color

“Add a pop of color with stick-on wallpaper. This peel-and-stick paper goes on easy and is applicable in any type of design area. This is super popular right now because it can take a plain room and give it a whole new feel.”


Give Your View a View

“Exterior and interior wall murals are a fun way to incorporate color and scenery. Murals are even more aesthetically pleasing in front of a mountain or ocean view.”


Make a Splash Midcentury Modern Design Tips

“Open wet area concepts are on the rise, especially in the master bathroom. A wet room is a totally waterproofed or tanked bathroom with a shower area that is flush with the floor level.”

Welcome Wood Veneer

“Wooden veneer [a paper thin cut of wood] can be incorporated on an accent wall, dining table or on an island. You can even break up the veneer with reglet metal trim.”


Shelf Yourself! Midcentury Modern Design Tips

“Floating open shelving in the kitchen is a great way to showcase cool glassware, knick knacks, statement pieces and your daily-use utensils. They’re fun yet functional and create a unique, minimalistic look.”
