Design Tip: Entryway Lighting

Entryways are the first impression to your home, so it is very important to make them reflect the rest of your home. But even the prettiest of entryways aren’t impressive without the perfect lighting. We have two very simple and effective tips to help you choose the perfect entryway light.

1// Shorter Ceilings

Just because you have a standard 8-foot ceiling doesn’t mean you have to use a flush mount light. You just need to make sure there is enough clearance for someone to walk under. Measure from the ground up. We suggest keeping your light at a 6′ 9 clearance from the ground.

Classic American Homes

Inspiration is everything for us at House of Jade. Something so small can spark our creativity giving us a just the right idea for our projects.  We love to look for classic design elements rather than big trendy spaces to inspire us to keep our client’s homes timeless. Across the nation, there are a variety of home styles from Coastal, Farmhouse, Colonial, Mid-Century, Modern, etc. Though they all may be different they can still be differentiated from other countries with a “Classic American Home Look”. The detailed millwork, the antique wooden furniture, the beautiful blend of leathers and upholstery and so much more. So many of these design elements can be incorporated in a modern way. It is truly a piece of art to see a home that has is a perfect blend of classic and modern pieces.

Alpine Remodel Progress

We are excited to share a project we’ve been working on now for almost a year!

Our clients have owned this home for 25+ years. Their jobs took them overseas for a few years so the home was kept as a rental. They recently decided to come back to Utah and make this their home again. They wanted to make their house more functional and update everything to get rid of the 80’s and 90’s designs throughout the home. With the help of Morley Homes we were able to design a beautiful home.

Through their travels overseas they started a collection of furniture, art, and accessories from all over the world that they wanted to incorporate these throughout the home.  It’s like we have hit a gold mine in unique items to use in the designs!

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!
