Love The Home You're In

Is Your Home Office a Real Office?

Is Your Home Office a help or a Hindrance?
Does Your Home Office Work for You?

A home office can be a luxury, affording you the comfort of working in your pajamas and eliminating the hassle of commuting more than a few feet to your desk.

What Guys Hate About Your Bedroom

Wondering what your home tells others about you? The moment someone enters your house, everything--the walls, the furnishings, the layout, the books, the towels, the spice rack--all start to speak. We can't help it: our homes are ultimately seen as reflections of who we are.

Welcome to Chez Moi! Give your Guests a Hotel Experience

All of us have been guests in less-than-ideal accommodations. Whether it was the lumpy bed and flat pillows at a motel or sleeping among your Aunt Ruby's overly-friendly cats, sometimes we are stuck toughing it out when we travel. Remembering these experiences makes us hope to never subject our loved ones to the same kind of treatment!

The next time you are hosting company, consider giving your guests the royal treatment. In addition to providing them with a fantastic room to sleep in, make them feel as though they are truly on vacation.

 You've just spent thousands of dollars on big projects with the hopes of getting your house ready to go onto the market.
