May 2012 Designer’s Corner

Janae Manion”Summer Inspired Renovation”

It’s been so incredibly beautiful outside recently that looking around can’t help but make you feel inspired. Everything, at least for the moment, is green and plush and everyone seems to be enjoying the new warmth.

I love bringing this freshness and brightness into a home. If you are planning on renovating your home this summer, take cues from the beauty around you. Trends this year in design are really reverting to the organic simplicity. White walls, re-claimed woods with pops of color using plants and personal decor. Bringing this design sense into your home creates a relaxing environment that doesn’t feel contrived. 

Have a great summer and please come visit myself or another designer with any questions for your own summer renovation!
