Enhance Your Family Time with a Tech-Less Living Room

While tech-filled homes aren't going anywhere anytime soon, families are increasingly keeping their family rooms unplugged to facilitate quality family time. Take a quick count of all the devices you use during a typical day—with so much screen time available families are beginning to crave spaces where they can read a book, chat with family and friends, or just sit quietly to unwind.

We all love binge watching our favorite shows, but too much technology is beginning to be seen as too much of a good thing. In fact, many technology chief executives, including Steve Jobs, adopted a low-tech parenting. In today’s fast-paced world, the trend of disconnecting from our devices to reconnect with ourselves and others is gaining traction.

Give Your Bedroom Old Hollywood Glamour with a Contemporary Flair

Glitz, glamour, and big time drama—these are the essential elements of Hollywood style.

Although considered the epitome of opulent, extravagant, and over the top, todays’ reimagining of Hollywood’s golden era freshens the look with gorgeous improvisations and contemporary twists. This sophisticated look is back with a vengeance. The sheer audacity and visual richness of Hollywood-inspired pieces make them well worth incorporating into any room’s design.

Make Your Bedroom a Comfy, Cozy Retreat Full of Southern Charm

Wood, iron, vintage pieces, modern fabrics, white walls—it seems just about anything goes these days in the design world. So, when you are looking to create a cozy bedroom full of southern charm, just where to you start?

The classic look of traditional furniture will never go out of style. Reclaimed wood and all white rooms, cottage style and farmhouse rooms are still popular—and for good reason. People love the casual, lived-in feel they get from these styles. Soothing blues pair with clean, crisp white and natural colors create a casually elegant style. And even though this style may draw strongly on traditional roots, it still has a modern flair.
