Feature We Love: Front Porch


CM Front Porch lg2

It’s no secret that we’re big advocates of curb appeal. Helping your home make the best first impression is always a good idea, whether you’re selling or not. While there are many ways to improve your curb appeal, one feature that always translates well is a front porch.

 

We’d say the odds are pretty good that most people either grew up with a front porch, watched families gather on them in TV shows, or just like the way they look architecturally. Whatever the reason, the emotion attached to front porches is inherently good. Traditionally, they’re also associated with a simpler time, when homes all existed on streets where neighbors brought over cookies and waved to each other while driving down the street.

 

Check out eight front porches that have us wishing for a breezy morning, a hot cup of coffee, and a fresh newspaper.

Room Re-do: Colorful Outdoor Oasis


 

An outdoor room is the perfect place to spend summers grilling out with friends or having your morning coffee. If we could have an outdoor room we imagine it might look something like the space at 6967 Seabreeze Drive in Grand Prairie. It’s colorful, well designed, and looks like the perfect place to lay back and day dream. If you’re a fan too, check out the links below to recreate this look at your home.

Feature We Love: Neutral Bathroom


While it may seem safe, it’s a bold decision to choose to decorate a space completely in neutrals. A neutral color pallet suggests cleanliness and a sense of order, which has an especially big impact in bathrooms.

 

While there are many merits to colorful spaces, a crisp bathroom done out in a simple color scheme feels soothing and spacious. Implementing this design technique creates a spa-like feel that will be a refreshing way to wake up for years to come.

Timeless Decor that Never Goes Out of Style

2. Art You Love: Some say that you should never buy a piece of art unless you feel you can’t live without it. While this doesn’t apply to art that is priced on the lower-end, it does hold true for investment pieces. Find something you just can’t imagine your home without and you’ll find happiness every time you see it.

4. White Paint: Is there anything like a simple, sleek coat of white paint? No matter how your other decor changes, a white wall is always the perfect backdrop.

5. Multi-Functional Pieces: Just about any item that can preform double duty will stay with you for a long time. For example, instead of buying an entertainment unit, think about investing in a piece that could be useful somewhere else in the house. The size and style of TVs, computers, sound systems, etc. will always change, so don’t pigeon hole yourself when buying furniture to accommodate technology.

6. Crown Molding: Crown molding is the classic finishing touch to any room. It’s stylish and dresses up your walls in an understated way. Once you’ve got it, it’s hard to imagine a room without it.

Small Space Solutions


Small houses are charming, cozy, and ideal for all types of homeowners, but the one catch is that they are just that, small. Smaller homes can work for anyone, though, if you just know how to capitalize on the space that they do have. Here are a few solutions to help make any small home have all the space you need.

 

All of these rooms belong to homes that are currently on the market, so if you’re on the hunt for the perfect small home click the images below to see the full property!

Small Space Solutions

Double Duty: Find furniture that is beautiful and functional, like this ottoman that serves as seating and opens up to keep clutter out of sight.

 

Built-ins: Built-ins are the ultimate in small house storage. The unit above can act simultaneously as an entertainment unit and storage for toys, blankets, and seasonal decor. Plus, built-ins don’t protrude into a room so they give the illusion of more space.

 

Open Windows: Keeping your windows bare or dressing them with sheer linens is the best way to assure that the most light enters your space. Light naturally makes rooms feel bigger, and a view to the outdoors does the exact same. Heavy curtains halt they eye and can make spaces feel more cramped.

 

Small Space Solutions

Mirrors: Mirrors are the easiest and most beautiful trick when it comes to small spaces. They bounce light around rooms and their reflection effectively  doubles the visual space.

 

Glass Shelving: Anything glass or clear is a immediate capitalization on space. Simply allowing the eye to see through things gives the illusion of more space.

 

Small Space Solutions

Dedicated space: In this kitchen, a wonderful home office is carved out of a niche that may once have been a shallow pantry. It’s important to know what kind of rooms will be most utilized when making decisions like this in your home. This home office, with open upper cabinets and closed lower cabinets to hide clutter, is perfectly nestled in this kitchen.

 

Small Space Solutions

Keep It Horizontal: Horizontal striped rugs and walls with horizontal paint or details work to visually widen a narrow space.

 

Open furniture: Consider furniture that has an open construction. This allows the eye to travel through it instead of taking up visual space.
