In the dining room, a credenza is ideal for added storage and provides a great surface to serve from.
A credenza is a large, closed cabinet often used as a sideboard or a buffet. In the dining room, a credenza is ideal for added storage and provides a great surface to serve from. We often use custom pieces to meet a client’s individual needs, an option that allows us to integrate the credenza’s interior into the design. A custom credenza gives you added flexibility for size, style, color, and material for a super unique look. Additionally, a credenza provides structure and a foundation for lamps and art. It grounds a space. I love using elements such as shagreen and ebony or two dimensional doors. When working with a craftsman, you can trick out a credenza for a memorable, one of a kind piece. Here are some of my favorite examples of gorgeous credenzas.

One great way to incorporate greenery is with planters.
Sometimes the spring/summer season sneaks up on you, but you can’t neglect the task of beautifying your patio or deck. One great way to incorporate greenery is with planters. With such a range of sizes and styles available, you can really say something with planters.
When choosing planters, you can find something that provides contrast or select pieces that blend with the architecture, outdoors or indoors. There is such a variety of textures, colors, and shapes of planters –big pots filled with gorgeous plants make a major statement in a great room or sun room. Or, you can group smaller planters together on a wall, the stairs, or a console.
You can further customize planters with what you fill them with. The contents of your planters have just as much potential for variety, from flowers and herbs to trees and tall grasses. When choosing plants, take into consideration their height, texture, and color. Some plants repel pests while others make pleasant sounds when the wind moves through them.
How do you decorate with planters?
