The key to successful kitchen design for the modern lifestyle is having enough work stations to carry out each activity. A beautiful kitchen suited for entertaining still has the need for efficient design, one that anticipates the needs of the cook, and all those who love the cook’s food. During grand events like Thanksgiving, it can be extremely difficult to cook and entertain simultaneously, which is why we believe the Open Kitchen is the ideal kitchen design for the holidays. It allows everyone to be involved with the group, even while mashing the potatoes.

Oct Blog 3  Pic 1 resized 600Want to make a great impression? A grand front porch adds timless curb appeal and seasonal enjoyment for years to come. Memories are made on front porches. A first kiss, a long goodbye, summertime lingering, watching the buzz of life while sipping lemonade, welcoming your favorite visitors, welcoming a hero home, watching sunrises or sunsets, watching the stars come out. And then there are the holidays: trick-or-treaters on Halloween, family at Thanksgiving, and carolers at Christmas. But what are the benefits of a front porch addition? You can create a new outdoor living space and add new life to your home exterior.

Adding a front porch to your home will add value and appreciation, that if done right, will last the life of your home. You will get a return on this investment.

In the daylight, a home can really impress. Well-placed plants can accent the home’s exterior, dress up a pathway and create dazzling displays for the eyes to rest on as you approach the house. In the dark of night all of that disappears and, more importantly, those same plants that dazzle in the day can create obstructions of vision and shadows that can reduce your home’s security and safety. Fortunately, outdoor lighting comes in many styles, shapes, and sizes to suit both your home’s architecture and your security lighting needs. Here are some examples of how to improve your outdoor lighting to make an important difference in your home’s security and night time aesthetic.

What happens when you combine modern design in a historic neighborhood? That’s been the national discussion for the past year in Raleigh, North Carolina. One new modern house has been the subject of legal proceedings after the city’s Board of Adjustmenstopped construction on a previously approved plan after a neighbor appealed last October. The legal struggles even reached the Wake County Supreme Court where the house’s fate was to be decided.

The controversial Oakwood Modern House has garnered a lot of national attention and been covered by many news organizations such as The New York Times and the Today Show. It’s even been featured on international sites like the Huffington Post and the UK’s Daily Mail. One anonymous supporter of the house has even started a Twitter account, tweeting as the house itself. As of the beginning of the month, the account @ModernOakwood has over 2,000 followers and has tweeted over 1,500 times.

At times, the house can be existential.
