Budget Wedding Tip: Unique Menus Can Be More Affordable
Rather than serving a traditional, old school wedding meal like chicken and steak, consider unique and interactive food options that express your personal tastes. Hire a food truck that serves tacos or host a more casual pig roast or shrimp boil rather than opting for a fancy plated dinner. It can save you money and your guests will remember it forever!

For the bathroom of a longtime customer-turned-friend, designer Katie Gagnon created a unique storage unit for the space between a pair of pedestal sinks. “This was a long-term project, and we spent a lot of time curating the perfect pieces for her ever-evolving space,” says Gagnon. “This storage cabinet was one we had custom made by an artisan we work with. The door is a vintage salvaged piece that had the original paint sanded off and we added an iron cremone bolt for some contrast and visual interest.”
Sunny Winery Home With Wrap Around Porch, Large Driveway and Mixed Textures
This beautiful home features a modern look with the warm colors of wood and stone exterior walls. A large wrap around porch provides ample space to enjoy the sunshine while creating a shaded area in front of the garage. The stone walls of the foundation are a great textural contrast to the smooth walls of the upper levels.
“Innovative storage solutions were key to making the most of every room in this waterfront cottage,” says designer Elizabeth Swartz. “This included the use of some wonderful hardware, such as this Hafele pull-out unit in the master bath to organize even the smallest of spaces efficiently.”
A custom finish on the pool surround mimics the rippling water and blends in nicely with the lush, tropical landscape. This Hawaiian home rests on 26 acres in Omao, on Kauai's southern side. An infinity-edge pool overlooks a tropical valley with views of mountains beyond.
