Go for the Gold

The SLC Olympics were incredible. I attended the opening ceremonies and many of the events. At the opening ceremonies I felt in sync with such a broad collective, participating in unison was a very profound experience. The state was celebrating and all of the party guests were interesting people.

In the spirit of the Olympics, and in support of the dedication and commitment the athletes,  I give you the gold.

Office Update, Before and After

The space didn’t reflect the young, sharp business owner and his executive staff. They needed something smartly updated and mindful of investing too much into a space that this successful company might outgrow. I chose to turn my back on elements that would drain a budget and chose to focus on high impact. We couldn’t be more unanimously pleased with the results.

Mantels by Design as Seen on KUTV, Channel 2 Fresh Living

DSC_1197A mantel is typically focal point and is often the strongest architectural feature in the space. It should suit the space in terms of scale and design language. A few tips: allow for at least a 10 inch depth mantel and install an outlet on mantel shelf where it cannot be seen for holiday décor or lamps.

I generally prefer TVs away from the mantel on a side wall or cabinetry if it’s suitable for viewing. Generally this is best when the space is formal or when the mantel is high. Typically I suggest a TV above the mantel if the space is casual and mantel is 62 inches above the finished floor or lower. Above the mantel is also suitable if the majority of viewing is standing or lying down. I have on occasion placed TVs below a mantel where they seem to disappear.  This works best in a wide feature, where the TV is viewed from a seating position and in a room where TV isn’t the primary function. I have long ago gotten over the compulsion to hide a TV.
