It’s not easy being GREEN! When it comes to the furnishings, materials, and surfaces we have in our homes, many corporations are guilty of using chemicals and compounds that can be HARMFUL to us, our kids and our pets. Here’s what you need to know about green washing thanks to green designer Lenora DeMars of 9Ten Design.
COREtec is the new kid on the block in the flooring industry and it has come to be one of our favorites thanks to its kid-proof, pet-proof, water-proof properties, easy installation and beautiful look and feel at a fraction of the cost! Here's everything designers want you to know about COREtec... with a Bravo TV reference for good measure.
We could all use a little getaway every now and then, so why not transform one of the underutilized rooms in your home to create a mini-escape? Pour yourself that glass of Rosé, grab a good read, bask in the natural light and temporarily ignore kids, dogs, husbands, and responsibilities. We took this dining room to new heights with a Hamptons meets SoCal inspired classy coastal aesthetic. Read on!
Every late 90s early 2000's builder seemed to love the California Tuscan aesthetic, expecially in Southern California. Those homes are now approaching 20 years old.

Although beautiful to look at, we know more than anyone that bright, white kitchens aren't the most kid-friendly. Dirt, grime and grubby fingerprints are enough to make any clean freak shake in their boots...but fear no more! We've made some smart design swaps in this kitchen remodel to cut down on child-sized damage and keep the family unit around for many more "pizza nights."
Thinking outside the box never looked so good! We used THIS unconventional outdoor material to make a waterproof, bathroom-ready SHIPLAP shower! Accented with gold fixtures, graphic pattern floor tile and our favorite warm grey colored vanity, this space comes together with clean, classic charm and really opens up a previously dark and cramped space.
