Interior Paint – Making the Best Choice

Quality Finishes

There is no statement in a room as weighty as wall paint. Wall color is the backdrop to all room decor decisions. From beige to bold, wall color sets the tone for finished room design. Color is a powerful tool, capable of creating more than a style—it also embodies a feeling.

Consider the following interior paint points:

 

Curated Color Palettes

Picking a color can be intimidating. It is hard to narrow down favorites with all the tones, shades, and hues available today. Take advantage of years of professional experience and use curated color palettes available at the paint store when choosing colors. Do your research and look for marketing materials that show colors in consideration painted on a larger scale or finished project. Color palettes are often curated to support unique design styles. Rustic, vintage, organic, modern, traditional, or timeless—keep your style in mind when searching palettes.

Smooth Transitions

You are probably familiar with those little paint strips at the paint store with varying shades of the same color on a card. They are super handy! Once you find a color you really like, use the ombre’ color card to pick coordinating colors for nearby paint applications. Go a shade or two lighter or darker throughout the house for easy color transition.

Smooth Transitions

Paint that Pops

Painted walls don’t have to be boring, use painter’s tape to create shapes and custom designs. Both tone on tone and complementary colors will yield unique graphic expressions. Color-painted ceilings are another opportunity for stand out design. Use soft neutral colors on the ceiling for a soothing feel or dark bold colors for dramatic design overhead.
Paint that Pops

Quality Finishes

Paint technology is getting better and better and finishes are becoming more of a preference than a principle. Evaluate the space to be painted and consider both design and durability when deciding on an appropriate finish. Quality paint sources now boast washable flat paints, which is an exciting innovation since it’s a favorite for wall applications. Flat paints are easier to touch up after wear than paints with sheen in the formula. Low-sheen matte paints are still a better choice than flat paints for concealing water marks in damp bathrooms. Semi-gloss paints are scrubbable, making them ideal for use on doors and trim.

Quality Finishes

Color Assurance

White paint is no longer just plain white—there is creamy white, pure white, snowy white, chalk white, lacy white, and so many more ideas of virtually the same color. And yes, it really does make a difference. All those little variations do equal different results. Don’t skip the samples, take the time to paint a large cardboard panel with sample colors and hold it up to the wall to ensure that your paint selection is the perfect one. Evaluate the sample board during different times of the day before committing to a larger pail of paint. Changes in natural light from sun up to sun down can make a noticeable difference.

Color Assurance

Choosing Exterior Paint Colors

Choosing Exterior Paint Colors

How to choose the right exterior paint colors for your home.

The outside of your home is a big canvas, which means choosing the perfect paint color is a big decision! Scrolling online galleries and strolling neighborhood streets can help narrow down your favs, but zeroing in on that perfect palette requires some careful consideration.

Red, green, pink, or blue, here are a few tips to guide you towards that perfect hue:

Plan Around Fixed Elements

When it comes to impactful exterior updates, changing paint color often tops the list. Be mindful of existing exterior elements like masonry, windows, and lighting when choosing a color. Fixed features often help dictate a warm or cool palette. Aim to land on a color choice that ties everything on the exterior together.

Choosing Exterior Paint Colors | Tips for Picking the Perfect Palette

Consider Architectural Style

Your paint palette should feel appropriate to your home style and era. Many paint manufacturers offer collections to support unique home architecture. For instance, recommendations for mid-century modern homes may include retro oranges, yellows, and greens while farmhouse design frequently utilizes a mostly monochromatic white and black color scheme.

Consider Multiple Colors

Keep things visually interesting by using a combination of colors on the exterior. Start by selecting a color for the main house body, usually the sided part of the house. Next, dedicate a complementary trim color. Finally, choose one or two accent colors to support house material change, like the front door and shutters. Stain can also be used to spotlight natural architectural elements.

Choosing Exterior Paint Colors | Tips for Picking the Perfect Palette

Take a Step Back

It is always a good idea to get a curbside view. Color intensity is something to consider when choosing paints. Look around the neighborhood, both at other homes and natural landscapes. Your surroundings can provide valuable guidance. If your home is nestled in the darkness of a shady foliage canopy you may opt for a bright light exterior color to stand out. While a home basking in the glow of sunshine could become washed out if painted too light.

Choosing Exterior Paint Colors | Tips for Picking the Perfect Palette

Try Color On

Exterior paint can be a bit of a chameleon from sun up to sun down. With lighting changes throughout the day, and weather fluctuating sometimes by the hour, trying on color is always a good idea. Purchase sample colors and paint a small area to evaluate before changing the entire facade of your home. Alternatively, paint a large piece of cardboard or tarp to see color on a larger scale. Take your time, patience will yield a confident color choice.

How to Put the “You” in Unique Design

Unique design starts with you! The most personal designs are a result of being involved, intentional, and authentic throughout the design process. Honing your unique design style takes time. Explore trends, ask friends, tour homes, and talk to experts. These are great ways to sort through likes, dislikes, and what really works best for you!

Here are a few tips to help you achieve uniquely-you design:

Plan for Real Life

Your design style should be reflective of your life-style. Consider the wants and needs of all users who will occupy the space. Take time to contemplate anticipated room use and function upfront. This will lead to smart design decisions and ultimately happy spaces. Organization, accessibility, durability, and technology are all very personal design features to consider.

Create a Vision

Knowing what you like and what you want out of a design helps establish a vision. A balance between aesthetics and function also creates timelessness in a design. Having a vision helps keep you focused, on track, and eliminates unnecessary expenses that can arise when plans are incomplete or fickle. Designing spaces piece-by-piece with long gaps of time in between can lead to perpetually unfinished spaces, a recurring desire to alter the plan, and sometimes a room without a purpose.

Contrasting Elements

Contrast creates a more realistic and natural feel in a design. Layer contrasting materials, patterns, and textures to enhance visual energy. Think coarse next to smooth, shiny next to dull, scratchy next to soft, etc. Contrast elevates design with unique personality.

Be Authentic

Incorporate unique family heirlooms and everyday pieces into room design. Every house has a story to tell—authentic design tells your unique story. From custom color palettes that represent your tastes to decor that spotlights your interests, design can say a lot of things. Go with design selections that speak to you!

Wallpaper Woes: Tips for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

Modern wallpaper installations are full of wow! Avoid the woes with smart selection and application. Whatever your design style, there is a paper for you. Gone are the days of dated theme borders and dull matte papers. Today’s wallpaper is all about texture, durability, and fun. Wake up tired design with wallpaper!

Wallpaper Woes: Tips for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

Consideration to Make for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

1. Accent or All – How Many Walls to Paper?

Stumped by which walls to paper, or how many is too many? Relax knowing there are no set rules. In a small room like a powder room or den, all walls are suitable for papering. In a larger room like a living room, bedroom, or office, you might choose one accent wall instead. A fireplace surround in the living room, the headboard wall in the bedroom, or desk area in the office are all great accent choices. Pantry shelving, beverage bar, and laundry washing station backdrops are also fun one-wall applications.

2. Paper Selection by Application

Wallpaper has come a long way, and it’s not even all paper anymore. Vinyl wallpaper is a thing, and it’s an amazing thing! Kitchens, baths, bars, and laundry rooms are all considered wet zones in the home. Traditional paper wall coverings succumb to moisture and are prone to peeling when wet. Advanced vinyl wallpapers resist water are now available in a wide variety of print and pattern. Vinyl papers are durable and easy to clean too. Conventional paper wall coverings are more suitable for dry zones like bedrooms, living rooms, offices, and dens.

Wallpaper Woes: Tips for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

3. Print, Pattern, and Paint

From bold botanicals to florals and animals, patterned menswear to rivets and studs, timeless grasscloths to metallics and leather—there is a paper for every style. As designers we couldn’t be more excited to see wallpaper trending again. The texture and ta-da wallpaper adds to a room is unparalleled to plain painted walls. Prints and patterns are usually seamed every 24-27”, so consider the repeat when choosing wallpaper. Small prints sometimes repeat more often and can actually appear busier than large patterns which repeat less often. Murals are comprised of several widths of wallpaper but do not repeat. Murals do not necessarily have to fill the space they are applied on, alternatively they can be framed in paint or wood. Pro-tip: Paint walls before papering in a coordinating color to minimize unsightly seams that naturally occur over time due to sun and humidity.

Wallpaper Woes: Tips for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

4. Specialty Installation – Ceilings

Possibilities for papering are really endless! Ceiling applications are unique ways to incorporate texture and pattern into a room design. Above the master bed, over a dining table, and a coffered ceiling are all neat places to paper. There are a few things to consider when papering ceilings. First, work with a qualified and experienced installer who has access to proper equipment including ladders and scaffolding and can also guide you through choosing proper paper weights and coatings. Also, make sure any ceiling lighting rims and mounted speakers coordinate with the paper design. You don’t want these to stick out, so pick finishes that disappear into the wallpaper.

Wallpaper Woes: Tips for Avoiding Wallpaper Mistakes

We can take care of the sometimes intimidating installation process too. Contact us to learn more about our flexible Satisfaction by Design process.

Evolving Style – Traditional to Transitional

Are you ready to trade heavy drapery, ornate details, and deep rich color tones for airy textiles, casual touches, and fresh color palettes? Consider a refresh instead of a remodel. Transitional style blends traditional tastes with modern trends.

Evolving Style - Traditional to Transitional

Tips on turning traditional design transitional:

Cabinetry – Fresh Finishes

Cabinets take up a lot of real estate in the bathrooms and kitchen. One of the quickest most satisfying style updates involves modernizing cabinet finishes. Out with traditional dark cherry and light oak woods and in with painted white and grey cabinets. You won’t regret the brightness light cabinetry brings to a room. Complete the look with a white marble, granite, or quartz countertop and simple backsplash.

Evolving Style - Traditional to Transitional

Furniture – Lines Tell Time

A simple furnishing update is sometimes all a room needs, preventing unnecessary room renovation. Replace traditional rolled arm, nailhead studded, and wood accented furniture pieces with transitional track arm, linear edge, simple-legged pieces.

Evolving Style - Traditional to Transitional

Wood Tones – Floors and More

Modern wood tones are organic, natural, washed out, and less polished than once popular traditional cherry and oak wood tones. Transitional woods range from natural unfinished hues to hints of honey and even dark inky walnut stains. White-washed, distressed, and driftwood also represent a more contemporary style.

Color – Swatches to Watch

A little paint certainly goes a long way. One of the least expensive and most noticeable updates to any space involves wall color. Transitional color palettes are much lighter and brighter than traditional picks. Warm reds, yellows, and oranges are replaced with cool blues, pale greens, light grey, and faint beige.

Evolving Style - Traditional to Transitional

Textiles – Err on the Side of Airy

Formal and feminine are common words used to describe traditional textiles. Elaborate floral patterns and bulky velvets all suit traditional luxury style. Transitional fabrics appear minimalistic and fresh in comparison. Bright whites, light grey, natural tans, and subtle pops of color adorn transitional textiles. Light and airy textured fabrics like linen and cotton-linen blend are popular transitional picks. Geometric and neutral prints are also preferred.

Evolving Style - Traditional to Transitional

Make Room for a New Room: Formal Dining Room Spaces Repurposed

Your house may have more space than you think! Before you add on, before you move out, look around — perhaps you can repurpose an underused room and maximize your existing floor plan. Formal dining rooms are commonly underused spaces in modern living but lend great opportunity for new rooms. With their location conveniently next to the living room and kitchen, the possibilities are vast.

Formal Dining Room Conversion Ideas:

Library/Den
Make this space your niche nook, an informal place for hobbies and happy time. Add built-in bookshelves, cozy chairs, soft glow lamps and voila, you have a library/den space to relax and read in. Settle in with a hot cup of tea from the nearby kitchen for the full effect.

Home Office

Converted dining rooms make great home office spaces because having a door is not always necessary. A desk is usually a must along with added storage for files, and shelves for supplies. Depending on your work life, you may also consider installing a large wall calendar art piece for keeping track of schedules, appointments, task lists, and other important details.

Guest Room
Unless you host regular out-of-town guests and have the extra space it doesn’t always make sense to devote a bedroom solely for visitors. Consider adding a hidden Murphy bed to underused rooms for multi-functionality. Get creative finding ways to add secret sleep spaces for temporary stays.

Baby Nursery
Growing families can convert formal dining spaces into a nursery during the baby years to save space and/or keep baby close by if the master is also on the first-floor. Shorten frequent walks in the night tending to baby and allow for more convenient diaper changes during the day by keeping the nursery near.

Playroom
This is one of our favorite family reuses for any underused room, a playroom! Little ones can play the day away, rain or shine in a devoted playroom space. Add bins for toy storage, table with chairs for art projects, floor cushions for reading, tents for a hideaway—you name it, so many options and so much fun to be had. For older kids consider adding a tv and lounging chairs to create a cool hangout space.

Ready to re-room? Everything Home can help convert underused spaces in your house to your favorite places! Contact us to learn more about our unique interior design process and services.

The Essentials for a Spa-Like Bathroom

Bathrooms are the most necessary room in your home, but why not make them feel luxurious! Set the tone for both a good day and a good night’s sleep with a spa-like bath experience. Simple bathroom design details can go a long way in creating feelings of peace and tranquility if implemented with intention.
The basics of designing spa-like bathroom retreats:
Declutter and Display
Clutter causes confusion and anxiousness, not something anyone needs in their daily routine. Remove items from bathroom countertops that are not used often, tucking them away under sinks and in linen closets. Expand storage opportunities by installing hanging wall baskets and shelves for holding extra goods if necessary. Countertops are prime real estate in the bathroom, reserve that space for things you need quick access to throughout your day. Display these necessities in clear jars, baskets, and on vanity trays for ease and aesthetics. Soaps, lotions, cotton swabs, and cotton balls all usually make the grab-and-go countertop list.
Natural Touches
One of the most inspirational design features in a room is wall color. For a relaxing feel, choose calming nature-derived colors. Neutral whites, beiges, grays, and cool blues and greens are proven to be soothing color selections. Avoid bright, startling, hues and bold distracting wallcoverings. Add plants and floral touches into bathroom design to create a holistic natural-feeling environment.
Soft Goods and Sundries
Spa-like bathrooms are more than a look, they’re a feel. Freshen up your linen closet with luxe towels, slippers, and robes. Lay a fluffy bath mat down for added splendor. Keep scented soaps, lotions, candles, oils, and other sundries on-hand for a full aromatherapy experience.
Five-Star Upgrades
As a nice alternative to soaking tubs, pamper yourself by installing a high-pressure rain, and/or handheld shower head. Additionally, consider adding electric warmers so you can enjoy toasty towels while drying off, especially during the cold winter months. Radiant-heat flooring also adds warmth and coziness while barefoot in the bathroom.
Everything Home can help you design a bathroom that looks and feels like your favorite spa. Contact us to learn more about our wide range of design services.

Mudroom Must-Haves

Just because mud is in the name doesn’t mean it can’t be marvelous! Mudrooms are more than a place to stash your muddy mucks. Think of mudrooms as arrival and departure centers in your home—a place to hang your coat, sort mail, leave a message for your family, and more.

When planning the perfect mudroom, consider the following opportunities and options:

Storing Shoes and Other Stuff
First things first, you definitely need a place to store shoes in the mudroom. Build a system for storing shoes, coats, backpacks, and purses. A combination of benches, lockers, cubbies, hooks, and bins will conceal the mess and prevent tripping hazards that personal items sometimes cause. Personalize storage centers by family member name to keep things orderly.
Message Board System
Mudrooms are a popular stop, making them the perfect place for posting the family calendar, weekly shopping lists, and chore check-off sheets. Playful fabric pin boards and chalkboard walls are excellent options for organizing upcoming events and family messages.

Arrival Station
As the arrival hub in the house, ample countertop surface space in the mudroom is key. Having a place to drop the groceries, keys, mail, etc. will help if your hands are full coming through the door. Incorporating wall pockets for quickly sorting mail and drawers or hangers for keys is helpful too.

Perfect Place for Pets
Pet-friendly mudrooms provide opportunities for custom built-in crates, fluffy pet beds, pull out cabinetry for food storage, a place to stash treats, hooks to hang leashes, and an easy to clean location to feed and water your furry friends. This hot trend is one to watch for!

Don’t Forget Durability
Mudrooms experience a lot of foot traffic, so durability is key. With so much action there will inevitably be drops, spills, and drippy shoes . Flooring must be durable, stand up to moisture, and be easy to clean. Consider tile or Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) for the mudroom. Walls may endure similar destruction. In addition to drywall think about adding shiplap, bead board, or board and batten for increased durability.

Everything Home can design a mudroom to simplify your daily routine. Contact us to learn more about our custom interior design experience!

Perfecting Your Porch Design and Decor

Spring is here and porch season is just around the corner! The sun is peeking out, and the days are growing longer. This is the perfect time to refresh front entries and back porches in preparation for those barbecue party Saturdays and lemonade sipping Sundays. We’ve got plenty of tips to share when it comes to planning the perfect porch.

Warm Up Your Welcome
Greet guests with a warm welcome before you even open the front door with thoughtful porch decor. A welcoming porch includes personalized details like a natural wreath door hanger, planters with a seasonal arrangement of fresh blooms, a properly sized welcome mat, and a vignette of cordial signs, lanterns, and/or seasonal holiday accessories.
A properly sized welcome mat supports the door and more; extending beyond the width of the door including other porch accessories, defining the welcome space as more than just the door.

Layers of Light
Lighting sets the mood for relaxing evenings on the porch watching fireflies and enjoying friends. Add layers of lighting from bright ceiling lighting for visibility to subtle wall sconce lighting for a soft glow. String lights, chandeliers, and lanterns add perfect ambiance when entertaining especially. Integrate dimmers for better lighting control and consider motion detector lights for safety near driveways and doors.
Softening Outdoor Spaces
Blend hard surfaces like concrete floors with softer organic surfaces like surrounding landscape and lawn. Soften porch spaces with cushions, pillows, and outdoor rugs. Decide what sort of space you would like the porch to be—fun, relaxing, eventful, sleepy, etc. Then select a textile color palette that supports those emotions.

Man-Made Meets Mother Nature
Just off the porch, you are surrounded by nature’s beauty. Find ways to marry the two spaces creating a seamless transition. Mix natural furnishings like teak wood with colorful painted wood and metal dining chairs. Add groupings of potted plants to porch spaces and blur the lines between man-made and mother nature.

Porches are for Perching
Seating is a very important element of porch design. First, consider what types of activity you plan to do on the porch, and then design seating accordingly. Aesthetics, function, and comfort will all play a role in finding the perfect seat.
Rockers, loungers and adirondack chairs all provide simple places to perch. Grouping two to four single chairs is recommended. Including cocktail tables between chairs is handy for holding beverages and other small items. Outdoor sofas and daybeds are more suitable seating options for moonlit movie nights and afternoon napping. Oversized swings are another fun choice, especially for children. Dining tables and chairs are usually reserved for back patios where meals are more commonly enjoyed.

Everything Home can help you design the perfect porch. Contact Us to learn how we can elevate your outdoor living experience!

Spring Refresh: Bringing New Life to Your Space

Flower buds are on the cusps of breaking and the birdies are singing—spring is springing! Soon a light scent of lilac and sweet cherry blossom will wake us from the heaviness of winter hibernation. Nature is renewing and you can too. Refresh your living space and feel the energy of spring surround you.

Here are some spring style secrets to get you started:
Spring Swap – Pillows and Throws
Change out pillows and throws for an instant style swap. Trade fur, velvet, and other heavy winter textiles for fresh spring fabrics and light natural textures. Integrate pastels, floral and foliage patterns, watercolor prints, woven linen, and jute for immediate spring feels.

Restyle Book Shelves and Surfaces
Super clean, it’s a spring thing! Start your spring cleaning by decluttering bookshelves, furniture surfaces, and table tops. Get rid of extra weight in the room and then subtly sprinkle in pastel vases, light woven baskets, spring decor, and other fresh details.
Spruce Up with Potted Plants
Literally bring the freshness of spring indoors by adding layers of potted plants to your space. Consider mixed pots, living wall features, and hanging planters. From native ferns to tropical succulents, home decor can’t get fresher than live plants. Plus indoor gardening can be quite fun!
Rearrange and Refresh
Lost your luster for a certain space? Maybe things are feeling sort of stale? It’s amazing how refreshing rearranging furniture and furnishings can be. Simply moving existing things around can bring new life to a room and save money too.

Fresh Paint = Fresh Feels
When it comes to getting the most “bang for your buck” in interior design, paint is a front runner. Spring is a perfect time to refresh paint and maybe even try something new. Out with those Knicks and smudges and in with fresh and clean! Buttercream yellows, soft greens, and muted blues all make great spring paint accents and are easily supported by a neutral palette.
