You do not need a huge backyard to create a beautiful, lush garden space for your home. Consider designing your small outdoor space to be an extension of your home. Create a usable outdoor living and dining space by applying the same design principles that you would use on any interior space. Define how you want the space to be used, determine if your space requires privacy, has a view or both.   Decide what features you would like integrated into the space and then contact your local Interior Designer to help you plan your area, specify materials, landscaping and furniture.

I have recently discovered two wonderful new products from Davis Furniture’s Elements Collection. These products provide a fun and functional touch to just about any space. The first is called Dots, which is a new line of wall hooks made up of a wood knob and optional hook. The second is called Line, which is a wall-mounted storage element that provides great visual interest. These are a great way to utilize limited space in style.

Barrett Design Studio and New York Style

Having lived for several years and operated a business in New York City, I can testify to the fact that there is, indeed, a distinctive style and attitude to New York.  A native Mississippian and graduate of one of the South’s most prestigious design schools (Auburn) the contrast between the Southern vernacular and tastes – gracious entertaining, casual and relaxed in both formal and informal settings. pride in heritage good manners and tradition – and New York’s “uber” urban and exciting rhythms and curiosity about the newest and latest and greatest trends became quickly evident when I moved there from the South.  It is also true that many Southern architects, interior designers and artists of all kinds have made an aesthetic, if not literal, home in New York and brought their heritage and tastes as part of their artist language to the New York scene.

In a simplistic way, New York heralds the future, the South venerates the past.  Both share the others qualities, however. and the New South, as it is called, has become the home for the most ambitious and progressive acceptance of technology and urban trends.  New York has embraced its past and made remarkable strides in preserving the landmarks of its urban fabric and the intellectual freedom that welcomed people from all over the world for generations and genrations.

Consider integrating a freestanding bath tub into the design for your new home’s master bath or renovation project. A freestanding tub can transform your master bathroom into an oasis, creating a spa experience in your own home for relaxation and healing. There are many styles and features to choose from and consider. The bath tubs can be, contemporary, transitional or traditional in style, soaker or whirlpool type, have waterfall, deck mount or floor mount faucet options as well as additional heating and lighting options integrated into the complete package. We can help you determine the best option for your home based on layout and design,style desired and budget considerations.
