A designer's work is never actually done. For most designers there is always a little something extra that could be done to take our designs to the next level. However, the only thing I could find to do in the Blehm's master sitting area was to adjust the lampshade because the room and its views were flawlessly picturesque. In this space, Angela used one of my favorite hospitality-inspired design tricks. She concealed the drapery hardware behind the crown moulding, thereby creating a clean and elevated look. The moulding becomes the cornice and the pleated linen drapery opens to expose the outdoors like a movie screen. How's that for drama?! My number one pick in this image is the upholstered bench. It manages to be retro, mod, and current all at the same time. Angela's is fearless in her use of white furniture and rugs throughout the family home. She's proof that it can be done, not to mention, done with her three young children and pets!
Vibrant beachy-blue hues abound in this coastal kitchen, giving the space a casual, relaxed feel. The kitchen's 6-foot island, capped in quartz, serves as both a workspace and casual-chic dining area. Bamboo leaf counter stools were selected for their weathered driftwood gray finish and beachy feel.
Storage Dilemma: You don’t have a designated spot for your crafting and gift wrapping supplies and waste time searching your home for all the essentials. Solution: Gather, sort and group similar items and use drawers, bins, rods or a cart to keep everything organized. If space is tight, set up a mini station in a corner of your home office or inside a closet.

This elegant, Midcentury Modern dining room flawlessly blends textures, patterns and materials to create a perfect execution of the Midcentury style. The clean lines of the modern table, buffet and chairs are softened by the velour fabric that covers the dining chairs, while the roughness of the wicker rope rug and planter adds texture to the space. These elements combine to give this space an elegant, Midcentury Modern look.
Surrounded by windows, this shining white kitchen is practically glowing. Glass front cabinets and open shelves keep the space airy and not weighed down. Wood floors, gray countertops and barstools and an exposed beam and range hood accent all provide relief from the brilliant white. A small glass table with white chairs provides seating, along with an L-shaped island. Taken all together, the design is gorgeous and works together beautifully.
