There are few trends that translate successfully across various design styles. Barn door hardware might be the exception to the rule.

We’re feeling very blessed with this beautiful fall weather and especially grateful that the sun was shining on our annual golfing, fishing and clay shooting events this year.
Cable railing began as a solution for exterior deck and stair systems in situations where an uninterrupted view of the landscape was important. Rather than looking between balusters to see the lake, forest or the backyard, the cables all but disappear. Today we see this system being adapted for interior stair systems. The overall look […]
Do you enjoy painting? We don't either... we'd rather be at the cabin.
Most interior designers I know, self included, have a love-hate relationship with trends. Mainly because trends don’t always apply to the design concept or work within the constraints of our client’s home, site or budget. We hate to say, “no, that won’t work,” but frankly, sometimes it doesn’t. Black exterior doors are not for every […]
In a previous blog we talked about the elements and principles of good design. This morning, while flipping through photos we’ve taken of finished projects, I stopped on this image. It’s a beautiful space and a gorgeous photo. Like all good design, if we spend just a few minutes thinking about those basic elements and […]
In the Midwest we’re looking for a change. Spring isn’t here yet but we’re ready for the snow to melt. We can’t wait to see the trees begin to bud and the grass begin to sprout. A change of scenery might be coming in the way of a trip to a beach but if you’re […]

That green grass could become white at any moment! Starting around the day before Halloween, the ol’ Blizzard of ’91 is recollected and […]
It might have been windy, but that didn’t deter any of our customers from attending our annual Customer Appreciation Event in Humboldt, South Dakota. We had 172 men and a couple of women join us for a day of fun in the woods and prairies of Hunter’s Pointe Shooting Club. With two, ten-field courses and 94 […]
We couldn’t have asked for a better turn-out or better weather for our annual Customer Appreciation Event. This year we welcomed 146 golfers to Albion Ridges Golf Course just outside of Annandale, Minnesota and another 46 to our fishing contest on Clearwater Lake. It was a great way to spend a Friday and the photos […]
Once considered an impossibility in our buggy, Midwestern climate, outdoor spaces are getting a second round of consideration. Why subject yourself to one more dreaded mosquito when the sofa lies inside waiting to be visited? There are birds! A good breeze (sometimes)! A bonfire waiting to happen! And at dusk…stars! Add an ice cold beverage […]
