Urban Attitudes by La-Z-Boy Furnishings Collection Featured at “The Mill at Broadway” New Model Home

After years of housing stagnation, Sacramento is once again becoming the hotbed for new home developments with fresh and updated interiors.  Recently, the VP of Design for the local La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, Palm Singh, was selected to design one of the largest new home models in the “The Mill at Broadway” development built by Bardis Homes.  Created as an urban residential community in downtown Sacramento, “The Mill at Broadway” new home models opened to the public on October 24, 2015.    

After a designer-search contest last year, Bardis Homes assembled a “dream team” of eight local designers, including Singh, who were tasked with transforming the various model homes with fresh and contemporary interiors that reflect the desire for more casually living and still be at prices that buyers could afford.

From Day to Night // Fright and Delight + Spooky Mixtape

From Day to Night / Fright and Delight + Spooky Mixtape

 

Brought to you by Pier 1 Imports

This ghoulish holiday season I have partnered with Pier 1 to bring a little Fright and Delight to our home. Halloween is a favorite in our house and since I am the first of my local siblings to have children, we often have family join us for our candy filled escapades with the boys.

 

I love this tradition and while I love to entertain, it’s so nice to find pieces that blend seamlessly between day and night… or in other words, they look good during the day while they are on display and when night falls and guests roll through, these holiday pieces do double duty and serve their festive purpose!...

Builders Showcase // Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

Builders Showcase / Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

I modified the Design Confidential's plans to accomodate larger cushions and made a fire table to match. The plans are easy to follow and the Kreg jig made assembly a cinch.

Originally, I planned to use readily available Sunbrella cushions from Lowe's that were 25" square and around $90 for the sofas and chair. Unfortunately, they were back ordered so I found a guy on Etsy who custom manufactures cushions near me and only cost a bit more. Overall the dimensions of the sofas are 82" wide and 32" deep and 28" tall. I made the arms a bit taller as I am 6'5" and wanted the back cushions to have a little more support. The fire table is 50" by 30" with a 30" by 10" fire pan and burner inside. ... Read More
