Residential Exterior Design Trends in 2019

Designers’ Favorite Exterior Details

Vaccaro, Luce, and Sharff each discussed the importance of translating this modern look for a variety of architectural styles by selecting high-quality exterior materials that offer versatility, variety, and simplicity:

Versatility: “Styles are all influenced by history,” says Luce. “When you use vertical boards, or board and batten, almost any style feels modern.”

Variety: “One of the things we’re trying to explore with clients is using a variety of materials on the facade,” says Sharff. “In addition to roof line and fenestration patterns, we’re also changing materials.” For a recent project, Sharff selected white clapboard for the main home, and a weathered-looking gray siding for the garage.

Simplicity: “When people want very clean, very simple, streamlined design, everything should have a function,” says Vaccaro. “You shouldn’t have shutters unless they work and actually cover the window.”

9 Minimalist Living Rooms for Lovers of Streamlined Design

When it comes to planning the interior design of your living room, the whole process of carefully curating pieces of furniture and home décor, creating a cohesive color palette, and choosing the right fabrics can be overwhelming. And some of us tend to overfill our spaces. But if you’re already a fan of the minimal approach, you’ll agree that the most striking interior design isn’t determined by what you’ve piled into any given space, but rather, what you’ve left out.

Minimalist interior design meets at the nexus of “too-sparse” and “just enough”—it’s the perfect example of how great restraint can reap even greater rewards. Strict editing of decor and tchotchkes, choosing clean-lined furniture, opting for neutral colors, and keeping surfaces free and clear will ensure your minimalist living room design is most impactful—and anything but boring. So, lovers of streamlined design, rejoice! And get inspired by these nine minimal living

Your body may not be the only thing that put on some extra padding over the holidays… If you’re like me, the clutter in my home grew too. The new year gets me all excited to start fresh. Here are some tips on doing that in your home:

1. Start Where You’re At

Don’t worry about taking all the clutter on at once, start small. I love the mantra “maintain, plus a little more.” The goal with this is to not ADD to the clutter, and take on little areas at a time. You don’t want to take on too much and burn out. Small, sustainable habits will result in a more long-lasting change. For example, make your bed the moment you roll out of it each morning, or sort the mail as it comes in.

2. Schedule Time to De-clutter

Again, start small… before you

Will the Millennial Aesthetic Ever End?

You walk beneath a white molded archway. You’ve entered a white room.

A basketlike lamp hangs overhead; other lamps, globes of brass and glass, glow nearby. Before you is a couch, neatly tufted and boxy, padded with an assortment of pillows in muted geometric designs. Circles of faded terra-cotta and pale yellow; mint-green and mustard confetti; white, with black half-circles and two little dots — aha. Those are boobs. You look down. Upon the terrazzo nougat of the coffee table, a glass tray trimmed in brass. It holds a succulent in a lumpy ceramic pot, a scented candle with a matte-pink label. A fiddle-leaf fig somewhere looms. Above a bookshelf (spines organized by color), a poster advises you to WORK HARD & BE NICE TO

Installing Exterior Stairs? Choose a Lasting Design

Exterior stairs should be designed and constructed such that the service life of the stair assembly is no less than the life expectancy of the building or structure to which they provide access, and are maintainable without non-visible damage occurring.  Increasing the ability of exterior stair assemblies to withstand prolonged exposure to moisture and other deteriorative elements will inevitably extend the service life of the assembly.  It is uneconomical to continuously attempt repairs, or to replace stair assemblies that have degraded to the point that they can no longer function as originally intended.  A typical failure of exterior stair assemblies occurs in stair designs that incorporate the use of a steel pan with concrete fill at the treads or landings.  Manifestation of the damage to this particular type of stair assembly appears as corrosion of the steel liners, freeze-thaw damages to the concrete fill, and structural weld and connection damage.
