There’s no such thing as one-style-fits-all. Great designs take into account the things that define us—our needs, our interests, even our budget. In the following design profiles, we highlight the connection that exists between life and style. Read on to learn how you can use this dynamic to get the most out of your home.
Always on the Go
Your Life: You want it all—a career, a family and a beautiful home to share with loved ones. And since your schedule is jam-packed from dusk ‘til dawn, you appreciate anything that makes your life easier. When it comes to your furniture, you expect a lot—after all, you always give 110%, so why shouldn’t your furniture? You care about durability, but you also want your space to look great.
Your Style: Casual style is a great choice for family life, since it’s all about hospitality. The best part is that distressed woods are prevalent in casual furniture, meaning you’ll never have to worry about nicks and scratches.
Key Piece: The Hall Tree
It seems like kids (and husbands) never want to hang anything up where it belongs. A hall tree makes it easy to keep everyone organized as they come and go.
If your dinner table
is frequently overrun with homework, mail and craft projects, then it’s time to reclaim your kitchen! But don’t send your family packing just yet—with the addition of a desk
, this multiuse space becomes the perfect place for your family to gather while preparing meals and completing homework.
