Instant Upgrade: Bathroom Mirrors

I’m asked frequently for easy ways to upgrade a home - from the builder basic finishes to something with more style.  So, we thought it would be fun to do a pop-up series aptly named - “Instant Upgrade.”  The first topic we’re instantly upgrading? Bathroom mirrors. Let’s be honest - the builder-basic bathroom includes a... Continue Reading →

Trending: Modern Caning

Cane work in interior decor and furniture can be traced back to the days of ancient Egypt. And it’s making a strong comeback now.  Why?  It's an interior design classic that is being reinterpreted in clean and decidedly modern ways. A bit of backstory: Cane comes from the vines of the rattan palm that grows... Continue Reading →

The Habitude Files: A Laundry Room in Need of Storage

One of the biggest requests we get from clients is for more storage.  It doesn’t matter the client’s style, budget, or design preferences, everyone wants storage.  And this laundry room was no exception.

The Habitude Files: Teen Room Refresh

It’s almost officially summer, but, as far as Charlotte children and teens are concerned - it’s officially summer vacation. We thought this first week of #summer2018 would be the perfect time to share a recent update we did for a teenage boy’s room.  If anything, the end of another school year is a good reminder...

And there are so many fun, modern choices for it.  If the thought of wallpaper seems like a big commitment to you, there are options to consider.   Use... Continue Reading →

Color Crush: Black/White/Green

As it grows warmer here in Charlotte, we can’t help but think we have officially experienced the unofficial start of summer. With that said, the warm weather has us feeling the tropical vibe - and interior designs with a black, white and green color scheme. When I think of this color scheme, I immediately think...

The Habitude Files: A Kitchen Makeover 42 Years in the Making

Today, we’re revisiting a kitchen renovation we completed last year. I cannot believe we haven’t shared about this yet as it was such a fun interior design project and such a beautiful, smart transformation.  My clients purchased this Charlotte home together in 1975(!) when they were first married; as is often the case, life got...
