The air is crisp this time of year. You can’t help but curl up under a blanket with a hot drink and a candle flickering on the side table. Coziness can be experienced through wool socks and a lit fireplace, but in order for your entire body to relax into the idleness of Fall, your environment must stimulate all five senses: taste, sight, smell, sound, and touch.

Of all the senses, our favorite is taste. Not just because we love food, but because it is such an important part of our work. As builders, we are often asked to remodel kitchens. The kitchen is a vital part of the home, and the way it is laid out, designed, and stocked reflects the personal style and taste of the owner. You enter a kitchen with a mix of ingredients and emerge with a full meal, ready to share.

We enjoy designing homes. We know it can be overwhelming trying to incorporate all of the things you love into your space. There are so many options and choices, and coordinating it all to make sense can sometimes be daunting. Everyone possesses their own taste in design, they just need help tapping into it.

When refining your personal taste, consider the following:

  • Taste is learned. It is perfected through experience and exposure. When designing a space with us, you will be taken on field trips to view and discuss patterns, textures, and colors with our interior design team.

  • Look to your closet for inspiration. What you wear says a lot about what your taste is, and that can easily be translated into the design of your home.

  • You do not need to conform to mainstream trends! Your home should reflect your personality and taste. When you feel at home in your own space, your guests will also feel at home there.
