Design Home 2016: Art

We had been working with Merritt Gallery in Haverford Square for quite some time when we signed on to do the 2012 Philadelphia magazine Design Home. We suggested them as an art sponsor and they agreed and have done every Design Home since. Fast forward to Design Home 2016 and we knew right away that Merritt Gallery’s art was perfect for the modern townhouse we were designing with the architect and builder. Merritt Gallery represents so many contemporary artists who

Design Home 2016 – Building Materials Selection

Working closely with the principal Architect, Jose Hernandez and his team at JKRP Architects, in collaboration with US Construction, we were able to have a lot of input on the selection of the building materials for Design Home 2016.

But the best design teams collaborate from the beginning while those who know design, know that it is best to get the whole team

What Is the Most Important Piece of Furniture in Your Home?

Think about it. Can you tell us which is the most important piece of furniture in your home? We would love to hear your responses. Here are some thoughts we’ve had. Your bed is very important, because hopefully you spend eight hours in it every night (wishful thinking, right?) But your actual bed frame has little to do with your comfort. Your mattress and box spring are what you are actually sleeping on, so we would say the bed is

The Powder Room – A Folly in Your Home

The Powder Room is one of, if not THE smallest room in your home. Yet unlike other small rooms in your home, like the Laundry Room, the Powder Room is seen by most of your guests at some point. Therefore, we think what it lacks in size it should make up in drama. We think the Powder Room should be a folly. fol·ly noun – ˈfälē/ 1) lack of good sense; foolishness.  2) a costly ornamental building with no practical purpose,
