Common Room Sizes |

If you’re looking into building your own house or are looking for a new home, it would help to know what the Common Room Sizes are. Having this information will give you a good idea of how big or small a room needs to be in order for it to be comfortable enough when the furnishings are already in place.

The square footage of the house is not the main determining factor in conceptualizing rooms in the house and their Common Room Sizes, although it does play a part.

However, perhaps the most important factor for consideration here is your personal preference. How big would you want your bedroom to be, for instance? Do you want a small, cozy nook for your study or work area? Finally, how large is your family and how many bedrooms will you be needing, for kids and adults in the family?

15 Interior Design Ideas of Luxury Living Rooms

It’s the second day of the week and here we are, talking about luxury in home design. We are sure, that at one point in your lives, you have met or actually know Architects, Designers and Decorators. Maybe talked to them about how to go about in starting to create your dream house or to renovate or recreate the existing design that you have at home – whether it will be for the facade of your house, or the interiors of your home!

We would like to quote Audre Lorde when she said, “for women, poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence.” Well, we are not really talking about poetry in this list, but like in all other art form, designing our homes is like a vital thing for us since there is always something that we want to add, or something that we

Optimize Your Product with 3D Design Software

3D product design is the creation of a product in a virtual environment such the product has three dimensions (height, width, depth).  The result is a digital prototype of your product, one you can explore in detail.   Without digital prototyping, you’d need to use more budget-vaporizing physical prototypes, watch time slip away, and get to market later with a product that might not be optimized.  3D design makes your life as a product designer easier and faster, giving you more time and energy to devote to optimizing your product.

Designers usually take one of two approaches to 3D design and solid modeling: direct or parametric modeling.  Direct modeling means you can push and pull directly on geometry.  Use it for speed and quick changes.  Parametric modeling means that the software maintains consistent relationships between components, so a change to one component is a

How to work with neutrals in your room.

 All to often, I meet clients who say they want to add color to their rooms, but when I present to them the color presentation, they get nervous and opt to go with beige. Now, I don’t necessarily hate the color beige, but it do find it to be the “safe” color choice for my clients and I know that for builders, “builder’s beige” is the next cheapest paint color to white.

So if you’re stuck on beige, whether it’s because it’s the safe choice or maybe because you are a renter and are not allowed to paint your walls, let’s explore how we can make beige a little more exciting and add a splash of color to your rooms.


 Here in this living room the right amount of orange to give this neutral living room the right splash of color. You

Updates and decorating (finally!) in the family room + kitchen

Our house is not done. We have so much more to do with it, so many ideas and plans and sometimes it can feel a little frustrating to have the vision, but have to wait to bring it all to reality.

I do my very best to look around and see all the things we have done, to remember where we were just 10 months earlier, to be grateful for this big, wonderful house with its big, beautiful yard. But, ugh, sometimes I can feel a little impatient and a touch envious of all the pretty, finished homes out there (like my sister’s, my friend’s, anything by Studio McGee).

Our kitchen and family room are two rooms that we can’t wait to update. They are the heart of our home, the spaces we spend the most time in and hang out when our extended family and
