It is pretty but there is a history behind them.When I designed this farmhouse style house I wanted to do some unique things and you don't see the blue ceilings much in the north as it was originated in t...

Step back and look at your fireplace objectively. Is it dated? In rooms that have fireplaces, the fireplace is normally the focal point of the room so ask yourself "Is my fireplace a good focal point?"If your fireplace has dated brick paint it....please! I know it is scary. I know you may like it...

It seems as though it is either a love or hate response when I ask that question to my design clients.The #1 reason people tend to not like them is "My mess will be out in the open for everyone to see." Or...."I will have to keep them neat all the time and that will be too much work."I get that, ...

Well the great thing about area rug rules is that you can break them! Really, it does come down to personal preference for both size and style but I want to address some common size options that you have. Although it is personal preference, I do believe there are times when a room can look odd if...

On my last post I showed photos of a farmhouse that I designed from the ground up. Not everyone has the luxury to buy or build a new home but they like the farmhouse look that has been made popular by Chip and Joanna Gaines of the hit HGTV show "Fixer Upper". If that's you, know that you can achi...

Houses are just tired sometimes and need some new life. That was the case at this property in New Hope, MN.Most of the changes were very light cosmetic things. Paint, flooring and new lighting. The kitchen and bathrooms did however get a full makeover bringing them into the current decade.Take a ...

So whenever I do have the time for a project I get so excited.This latest project sat in a corner for a couple years and I finally got it out and finished it. What took me so long? I...

If a chair could tell a story I wonder what it would say? Especially this chair.  I saw this chair in a house that was going to be remodeled; I was hired to do all the design selections and then stage it. When I saw the chair I knew it was a classic, well made and had been a stunner in it's day. ...

I'm sure we real estate agents in Sacramento and elsewhere around the country could fill up a book with stories about what happens among our clients when there is a death in the family. The in-fighting and backstabbing can be surreal. The one place, though, that I did not expect to see this sort ...

Because so many of you shared your stories with me and lent support when I went to Minneapolis to see my dying brother, I feel it's only fair to let you know he has finally died. It happened over the weekend sometime. My sister thinks maybe Sunday, but she's not entirely certain because my brothe...
