Make every evening or weekend spent at home this summer feel like a getaway by revamping your home’s outdoor living areas. Upgrading your porch or patio is relatively easy and inexpensive, and the payoff is huge. With the right setup and additions, you’ll soon find yourself spending as much time as you can outside, whether you’re enjoying your morning coffee or a festive soirée.

A well-designed kid’s room is equal parts fun, safety, and functionality. I’ve always enjoyed designing and decorating children’s rooms because they offer the chance to be playful and bold. Your kid’s room is a place for sleep, quiet, and comfort, but it can also be a place for games, learning, crafting, imagining, and so much more. An easy, inexpensive, and low-risk way to improve the mood and comfort of your child’s bedroom is with a new area rug. Learn how to select the best one for your home.

With Showcase weekend around the corner, we wanted to give design lovers and dream home seekers a chance to sneak a peek of the innovative work we’re revealing this Showcase season.
