Greetings friends. My family and I recently purchased a new house and we’re slowly making it our own, one room at a time.

Spaces unfold overtime and this home is no exception.

Valentine’s Day might be more than two and a half weeks away, but it’s never too soon to gush about whom we fancy.

It appears that we all have the ability to be creative. Many of us who are not in explicitly creative fields undoubtedly come up with new insights and visions that surely fall under this definition, right? Creativity comes in all forms.
We’re taking a moment to celebrate history in light of “BEAUTY BRAINS BRAWN and Beyond.” January 2013 will mark a monumental time in history when 20 women will hold seats in the U.S. Senate. Although our political institutions are still overwhelmingly male-dominated, this is a huge step in the right direction and a revolutionary moment for all people. We as male and female designers know that keeping balance is the key to inspiration and innovation for the common good.
