Overlooked garage door

Sheepishly, I admit the garage door is one of the last things I think about when it comes to home updating projects. (although my husband has been bugging me for 15 years!!)  If it’s not broken, why fix it? Which leaves us with standard inexpensive doors that look exactly like the one the neighbors have. But there is a world of modern garage doors that not only increase your curb appeal, but may I inspire you to use your garage as another living space.Madsen overhead door.2 JPG

These gorgeous wood garage doors camouflage with the rest of house’s wood façade and feel luxurious.

Many people are bringing this industrial chic element straight into their living spaces. Not one but two super tall garage doors create a comfortable and airy indoor/outdoor living room.

Do you have any ideas for how to design a space with a garage door??

As always I’d love to hear from you…

As temperatures drop outside stay warm inside with some cozy fireplace inspiration. From traditional to modern, gas to wood-burning, a fireplace can add a serious cozy factor to your room. Just imagine snuggling up to a warm fire on these frigid nights.

If you’ve already got a fireplace, there are many ways you can give it an update to change your look. Repainting the mantle or changing out the accessories and art above it can update your space with little effort. This neutral fireplace mantel is dressed with a bright, colorful painting!
