Summer seasonal homeowner tip:
Two of my favorite summer tips: the perfect interior air conditioning temperature is 75 degrees, and don’t mow your lawn too low or you’ll burn your grass.

What’s your most interesting or unusual client project story?
I currently have a couple I’m working with that loves color, and they’re boldly going for the Cambria Skye color. I’m super excited about it! They have a very Scandinavian theme going on.

Favorite current trend or showroom product:
I am still a huge fan of gold hardware. I love it! So much so that I’m putting it in my own kitchen. It makes such a difference in a space, especially paired with a bold paint color, it looks awesome!

Naomi loves geometric patterns and accents lately, like this Amerock kitchen.

Summer seasonal homeowner tip:
Grill outside as much as you can; watermelon is sticky, after all. It keeps your kitchen nice and clean!

Is there a trend or design practice that drives you crazy?
I never quite know what to say when someone asks, “can I just get a ballpark?” on a potential project. It takes a lot of specifics to start estimating remodeling costs.

What’s your most interesting or unusual client project story?
Anything I say will be held against me… haha

Favorite current trend or showroom product:
I love geometric lines, patterns, and accents. Like this beautiful kitchen from our hardware partner, Amerock’s, website.

Carly’s favorite trend is the subtle texture of crackle tile.

Carly Hand

Summer seasonal homeowner tip:
Fertilize – it’s a small thing that makes a big impact with weeds and bugs.

Is there a trend or design practice that drives you crazy?
Furniture vanities or vanities with legs; people forget about cleaning under and around them, and they tend to be pricey.

Favorite current trend or showroom product:

I really like the crackle trend on tile backsplashes. It’s an interesting design element without being too busy against many of the countertops we sell.
