Family Dinner
Modern Families GATHER IN The dining Room

 "  April's air stirs in 
    Willow-leaves...a butterfly
    Floats and balances "

                           ~ Bashō Matsuo

It's 2017.  Your family likely spends a majority of their at home time looking at some kind of a digitized screen, absorbing what we consider too much eye-straining liquid crystal display light.  This all changes the moment you place a delicious home cooked meal down on the dining room table, call in your family, and create real moments together that aren't measured in social media likes.

Handy Tips for Choosing the Right Mattress Size

Choosing the right mattressFinding the right mattress can be tough- Let us help you out!

 "  Summer night -
    even the stars
    are whispering to each other. "

One of the most frustrating things about shopping for clothing is that sizes are anything but standardized. Sizes change over time, and differ from one brand to the next. In the 1950's, Marilyn Monroe wore a vintage size 14 – which meant that she sported an enviably tiny, 26-inch waist. (In today's sizes, she'd be closer to a size 4.)

 "  Ah me! I am one
    who spends his little breakfast
    Morning-glory gazing "

                           ~ Matsuo Bashō

One of the major trends in home design these days is to create spaces that work for more than one purpose. The perfect place to begin is to add hidden storage with cleverly designed modern furniture.

Elan QuiltedPlaying with Color in Modern Furniture Design

 "  In the twilight rain
    these brilliant-hued hibiscus -
    A lovely sunset "

                           ~ Bashō

Modern design in 2017 is anything but tepid. Everywhere you look, designers are using lush, vivid jewel tones for everything from accent pillows to accent walls. A logical extension of the current emphasis on natural materials in home décor, jewel tones add a pop of color that brings to mind the glory of a sunset or the subtle glint of a precious gem.
