Feature We Love: Farmhouse Sink


The farmhouse sink came onto the interior design scene a few years ago and it seems like it is here to stay. We are seeing them pop up in our listings’ kitchens more and more these days and we have to say, we are big fans.

 

Also referred to as an apron sink, this style is characterized by an exposed basin on the front, meaning it is not dropped into the counter like other sinks. This hot trend is most commonly seen in traditional white porcelain or modern stainless steel.

 

Take a look at the great ways in which these sinks add character and style to the kitchens currently on the market in DFW.

Of The Day: Arched Architecture


Today’s OTD is diving into some beautiful architectural detail, specifically archways. They’re a gorgeous addition to any home, and they’re very common around the North Texas area. They create wider doorways, open up rooms, and bring the softness of curves to a variety of spaces. Check out the amazing ways archways have been incorporated into these homes. We’re feeling inspired!

2240 Longwood Drive, Carrollton, TX

404 Crestone St., Desoto, TX

2507 Custer Parkway, Richardson, TX

508 Sea Side Lane, McKinney, TX

160 Bee Caves Road, Lucas, TX

Wonderful, right? Think about how different these rooms would be if the archways were simple doorways or squared shapes. Thanks for joining us for this Tuesday edition of OTD!

Of The Day: Dark Cabinets, Light Counters


Happy Tuesday, all. We’ve talked on OTD about kitchens before (i.e. backsplashes, natural wood cabinetry, different types of countertops, kitchen appliances, white kitchens, and the list goes on), but today we’re talking about the beautiful juxtaposition that is dark cabinetry with light-colored countertops. It’s an aesthetically pleasing marriage between dark and light that will have you ooh-ing and aah-ing about the kitchens we’ve chosen to feature today. There’s something about the richness of the cabinetry and the calming, cool colors of the countertops that just make us sigh with delight. Take a look!

3317 Saint James Place, McKinney, TX

Aren’t these wonderful? A lot of times, people choose to go all dark or all light, but we’re glad there are those who step out of the box and show us more of the lovely options that are out there. Thanks for joining us today!

Of The Day: Balcony Bliss


Happy Monday, everyone! It’s a little cloudy around D-FW today, but temperatures continue to be in the 70’s and 80’s. While some people are hoping for cooler temperatures to come soon, we are still trying to enjoy the weather by spending time outdoors. In the spirit of this, today’s OTD is bringing you homes with balconies. Not only do these homes have beautiful balconies, they also have some of the most gorgeous views. Imagine relaxing and watching the sun go down from one of these amazing spots!

716 Water Oak Drive, Plano, TX

2976 Country Place Circle, Carrollton, TX

638 Crowley Road, Arlington, TX

Feeling a little envious of these balconies and views? We are too! They all look so peaceful, and the pictures have all captured the beauty that can be found all around the metroplex. We hope y’all had a great weekend, and we thank you for starting your week off with Of The Day!
