  • Did you think that all window treatments were the same?  You thought wrong.  Here are five great reasons to order custom window treatments for your home. Because they fit just right. We all know that when a suit is tailored to your body it looks amazing.  The same is true for your window treatments.  Ready-made treatments are made to fit the most windows possible.  I say “fit” with a grain of salt, as sheering a fabric on a rod is not a sign of a fine treatment.  I would compare it to a “one size fits all” elastic waist band,… Read More

  • A great vanity sets the tone for any bathroom. These designer consoles are a fine step above the pressed board “miracles” sold online or in big box stores. A carved chest front with storage makes this Ambella Home piece updated and unique. Marble and metal translate to a classic look that could be modern or traditional!  I’ve been waiting for the perfect client for this new beauty also from Ambella Home. The curved legs say traditional but the multiple finishes say right now!  Your plumbing fixtures, mirror, and hardware will define which way your decorating focus goes with this beauty… Read More

  • Nothing can beat a great “Before and After” collage!  It’s like a movie fashion montage… but for houses.  Here are some recent MDG bathroom projects with suggested budget numbers should you want to complete a similar renovation in your home. Going for Gold Our clients replaced everything except the bathtub!   This original bathroom was well over 40 years old.  There may have been a few updates over the years, but not much was done to bring style to this tired bath.   The extra-long cabinet was custom made, the stone used was a higher grade, the back wall tile was an… Read More

  • For the next few weeks we will be concentrating on Bathrooms.  This will include small ones, big ones, and even what they cost. At MDG we find that generally our clients are unaware of the cost of renovating a bathroom.  Misinformed by unrealistic television renovation shows, $10,000-$15,000 seem to be the numbers that most people expect, which leaves them unpleasantly surprised when we discuss the actual costs of these spaces.  We always have to remind our customers that they live in the Northeast and not in Texas where every renovation seems to cost $15,000. Bathrooms & Kitchens are, hands down,… Read More

  •   Grey is the new beige……and we are sooooooo over it!  Sure, we can do grey.  We do grey every day.  Grey and navy, grey and powder blue, grey and spa blue… you get the idea. At this year’s High Point Market we were inspired by the spaces that showed color!  They were bold, inspirational, and fresh.  Color stood out while the grey and boring showrooms left Kristen and I feeling uninspired.  Unremarkable would be a better descriptor.   While Joanna Gaines flash-in-the-pan “Texas” style permeated the ad space, it also seemed that the furniture vendors were racing to following the… Read More

  • The furniture industry has always been a “Good Ole Boys” club. Even during my years as a student, it was quite evident who ruled the roost when it came to the industry.  It became even more prevalent when I began attending High Point Market in 2007.  A women’s place was behind the desk, answering phones, and assisting the male sales force. They teetered on their stilettos walking us through the showrooms killing their feet on a concrete floor for a petty temporary wage.  The few women who were representing lines were my sisters. They were warriors against the establishment, and… Read More

  • One word. PLANNING! Planning for any project takes patience.  It’s hard, especially when our clients have been waiting for years to build that perfect house or to move into their dream neighborhood.  Waiting another day to get started is always tough, especially when they realize that the HGTV half-hour timeline is not compatible with the family room/kitchen open concept vision that needs to be ready by move-in.  The Property Brothers fail to show the five months of planning it took to get to their 6 week construction timeline.  As far as they are concerned, everything happens simultaneously.  Of course it… Read More

  • Please, read the title again.  As a designer, I say this on every single project.  MDG’s other designers say it on every project.  And still, clients insist on picking paint first.  I am passionate about this stance, so much so that I will stake my reputation upon this absolute statement.  Unless you have an unlimited budget that allows you to have everything custom made, you should never, EVER chose your paint first. Here are the top three reasons why this is a really bad idea: The Cerulean Blue Speech Remember the speech Miranda Priestly gave Andy in The Devil Wears… Read More
