HOJ Studio Design Planning

We have some exciting news for all of you…we are getting a new studio! Our company has been growing so much, it is time for a bigger space for us. We wanted a studio space that could be close to our homes and we could really make our own. After looking all over the area and finding nothing we loved, we came up with the idea to have the studio on Erin’s property. We are renovating an old stand alone garage right next to Erin’s new house. It doesn’t look like much right now but when we are finished with it, we think it will look amazing!

Morgan Farmhouse Design Planning

If you have been following along with us the last few months you may know that one of our owners (Erin Morgan) is renovating an old farm house and making it her dream home.

It has always been a dream of Erin’s to live on a farm. She knew that one day she wanted to have a slice of that in her life. When they came across this small home in Riverton for sale, her and her husband Jared fell in love with it. Erin could envision the potential that the property had, and felt like it was the slice of the secluded farm life she had always wanted but still within reach of a target!;)

Design Tip: Brass Hardware

Brass hardware is one of our favorite things! It can be just the thing to update a space to give it a whole new look. We get a lot of questions about how to use brass without going too overboard.

The most important thing we can suggest is to make sure your brasses match. Brass comes in a few different finish styles; antique, bright, matte. Make sure when you are choosing hardware to use the same finish style throughout the room.

Another thing to note everywhere has a different look of brass, so it is important to see it in real life. We recommend buying your hardware either in the store or just buy one piece online.

Design Tip: White Brick

We love the white brick trend that has been circling the design world for some time now. We have started to incorporate it in a lot more of our projects. We love how a white brick wall can be bright but also add texture and a natural feel to a space.

There are many ways to achieve this look. We will discuss the options that we have used on some of our projects that may be helpful for you in your upcoming design decisions.

In the Lehi Remodel, our contractor suggested a brick veneer product to save on cost. Brick veneer is set just like a regular brick with grout. We knew we were going to paint the brick so the color didn’t matter. It mattered more what the shape and texture of the brick looked like.

Using French Pleat Drapery

image via decorpad

If there is anything that can add instant sophistication and drama to a room it’s a pair of french pleat curtains or tailored pleat draperies. image by Jylare Smith Photography In our Covey Residence we used a french pleat with a blue trim to add a touch of color. The room was somewhat formal so a french pleat made the most sense for this space.  French pleat curtains are pretty in nurseries, girl’s rooms and formal living spaces.  They have a soft feminine touch. The tailored pleat allows the curtains to hang evenly so you don’t get weird bunching or puckering where you shouldn’t. image by Nicholette Photography In our office we wanted to bring in a softer touch so we went with The Shade Store’s Tailored Pleat Drapes. The only way to make a tailored set of curtains better is to layer it with a woven shade.  The texture mixed with the traditional panels create a winning combination. image by Nicholette Photography The Shade store was wonderful to work with! They will customize your product to your space so you don’t have to search and search for the perfect dimensions.  The Shade Store also provides step-by-step measuring instructions. They also have a huge variety of fabrics to choose from. We chose the linen in white. When all else fails white will never fail you.  It’s such a classic choice. Post sponsored by The Shade Store

Design Tip: Book Styling

In a normal world we buy books based off of the stories that are in them or from recommendations we get from a friend. We don’t care what the book looks like on the outside we just care about the inside. But when it comes to styling with books, the outside is the most important part. We still recommend buying books that interest you, just make sure they are fun to look at as well.

Books are a useful accessory which makes them more appealing to use in styling a space. They can add a pop of color into your neutral room. Or maybe some variation in height to your end table. Books can be used in almost every space in your home.
