Things You Must Know When Fixing Your House’s Interior

Many professionals have many things to talk about when it comes to interior design, which you might want to listen to some degree only. Trusting in your own design judgement is key because it is essential that you feel comfortable in your own home. Even though you are trying to stick to a budget you should not skimp on paint. You will just be sorry when you use low quality paint; it will chip and wear off and also damage your walls. By choosing a quality brand of paint, you can make your decor last longer.

The show’s title simultaneously reflects the interior design phenomenon of the lightly stepped down or “sunken” living room, popular during the last big U.S. recession of the 1970s, and the crash of the housing market during the recession in 2008. Using sculpture, video, texts, drawings, prints and photos, artists working today tackle recession-related topics that include: labor, debt, the collapse of the housing market, post-industrial cityscapes, unemployment, and banking practices.

Remodeling? Now You Can Snoop Inside Your Neighbors’ Kitchen

Remodeling? Now You Can Snoop Inside Your Neighbors’ Kitchen

Before and After a $162,000 Kitchen Remodel In order to rent the homes, they had to remodel them, whether it was paint and polish or more extensive work. Now, as home sales bounce back, and, perhaps more importantly, as thousands of homeowners regain much-needed equity in their homes, remodeling is seeing greater gains. “In the near term, homeowner spending on improvements is expected to see its strongest growth since the height of the housing boom,” said Kermit Baker, director of the Remodeling Futures Program at the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies. Home remodeling projects jumped 14 percent in September from a year ago, according to a new report from BuildFax, a data company that tracks building permits. The trends, however, are changing.

Hardock always felt the existing cherry cabinets were a diamond in the rough and knew if they were paired with the right surroundings, they would sing. Before (top) and after (bottom). Once the decision was made to keep the perimeter cabinets, Hardock designed an island painted in soft white with a butcher-block countertop in walnut and cherry with a walnut ogee edge to serve as a main focal point and gathering place. The butcher block was custom made by Grothouse Lumber in Pennsylvania and ties in the warm wood tones from the...
Come, Let’s Goop Around In Gwyneth Paltrow’s Living Room

Come, Let’s Goop Around In Gwyneth Paltrow’s Living Room

Come, let us learn at the resplendently pedicured feet of a true celebriguru. Photos via GOOP Here, we spy Paltrow’s “troubled” living room, whose true potential had eluded two previous overhauls at Paltrow’s own hand. Why, oh why, had this remained “a dead zone in the home, where nobody seemed to spend time?” Could it have been the visual violence wrought by that couch? A chakra imbalance brought on by a slight misalignment of the picture clump beside the piano? All Paltrow knew, aside from the fact that those “adorable” one-seaters deserved a second chance, was that she had to bring in a professional. Photo via GOOP First off, the piano was moved to the center of the room, as Windsor Smith tells it, to “draw energy into the space.” In its place, a Roche Bobois sectional sofa was added, along with a Carol Egan coffee table, chosen to grace this nook with a “contemporary twist,” “a subtle sense of weightlessness,” and “a lightness to it that reinforces the room’s airiness.” It’s worth noting here that we’re dealing with light, air, and weight, the -nesses that form the very foundation of our universe, and all of its interiors great and small.
