The Pleasures of Home

By Lisa Peck, ASID

It may sound a little sappy, but I take inspiration from my clients telling me about how they are enjoying and using their homes. It can be a story about how their relationship with their kids is a little better because the new mudroom prevents the daily stress of where and how the kids stow their gear. It might be the joy they feel when the use the space that was designed for their hobby. It might be a thank you note I receive when they have their first party in their new home and realize how much better it functions.  But I think pictures speak louder than words...

Okay...Jack might not be speaking to me, but boy does he enjoy this cushion which was designed with him in mind...indoor/outdoor fabric and trim makes it easy to maintain and it provides the perfect place for him to sun himself on a winter day. His owners find their home comfortable too. I pride myself on considering everyone's needs and desires when we design a home.

Please continue to look here on a weekly basis from now on for new design inspiration posts and on a daily basis for our design details.
