Posted by Bridget McMullin on February 19, 2016

When planning an entertaining space, be it a family room, living room, or kitchen, it is not unusual for homeowners to create a “bar” space.  I put the word “bar” into quotations because the concept of a traditional stand-behind bar might be all that you picture when thinking of an in-home bar.  However, there are many more ways to incorporate a bar into your space without being so literal and expected. Chances are that a…

Posted by Bridget McMullin on January 13, 2016

The simplest ceiling detail that I try to add to many of my projects is a simple “picture frame” box around the perimeter of the room.  This type of detail is so easy; the DIY goddess inside of you could take this project over in a few hours. Enhancing your home with crown moulding and ceiling detail is a great way to add value to your space.  Not many buyers complain when a house is…

City Living and Distributing Dignity for All

Posted by Bridget McMullin on November 10, 2015

City life. It’s amazing. I will probably blog about this for at least another year. I forgot how much my mind and body loved the city. From a good art opening (on the docket) to a late night stroll through the park, the life a city offers is endless in its ability to surprise and delight. I am not the young part of the city anymore, instead I get to be the voyeur of the…
