Modern Soaking Tub

How great is this modern soaking tub by Signature Hardware? Our clients were looking for a Japanese style soaking tub but much of what we were finding did not fit our modern contemporary style. We stumbled across the Signature Hardware site and were amazed at the tub options they had.  If you are looking for a unique or modern tub, this is a great place to look. There is a variety of finish options and looks, go check them out!

"Ring Faucet"

Check out this awesome faucet made by Sun Liang. "This unique faucet visually frames flowing water in a circular fashion, giving you a full view of the water just as it falls over the edge. The opening orifice at the spout end lets in natural light which illuminates the flowing water for a striking view." Seamless, flawless, and just down right perfect. This wins the coolest faucet ever award in our book. 

Unfortunately this product was only a concept and never made it to production.

A New Product by Nest!

Nest Protect: Smoke + CO alarm is the newest product by Nest. Nest is looking at the smoke alarm in a whole new way. "Be informed. Not alarmed." 

Nest Protect is available in White and Black.

Nest Protect is available in White and Black.

The new alarm has great features. First of all, it has a light ring that changes five colors to notify you about different situations. Blue when it is ready to be set up and configured, Green to let you know everything is working and you're safe, White at night that provides a soft light path when you pass beneath it, Yellow for an early warning sign, and Red in an emergency. Not only does it change color and sound an alarm in an emergency, it also speaks to you letting you know WHAT the problem is and WHERE in the house it is located. "Emergency. There's smoke in the living room". 

Colors notify you of different situations. 

Colors notify you of different situations. 

Connect your phone with Nest Protect so you can monitor your home while you are away. If you are not home during the emergency Nest Protect sends a message to your phone. Another great aspect is that Nest Protect works with your Nest Thermostat. In the event of a carbon monoxide emergency, the Nest thermostat will automatically turn off your gas furnace.  

What a great product. Can't wait to use this in one of our next custom built homes!

Pool House Accessorizing

Who wouldn't want an awesome pool house?! We recently had the opportunity to complete a pool house remodel on the outskirts of Eugene. With this project being a full interior renovation, we got to focus a lot on decorating and accessorizing. We had a great time choosing fun accessories to add character to our clients pool house which would double as their sons game room and guest house during the colder months. A few of our selections are shown below from some of our favorite retailers. Blues and Yellows were inspiring summer colors for our choices.

Dekton... The Newest in Countertops!

Brought to us by Cosentino, the makers of Silestone, is DEKTON. Dekton is the newest material in counter tops that is made from raw materials found in glass, porcelain, and quartz. Compacting these materials in extreme heat and pressure creates this new category of material - "the ultra compact surface". This material is changing the game because of the fact that it can be used both indoor and outdoor on counters, floors and walls. The advantages of this product are great; High UV resistance, highly scratch resistant, resistant to stains, high resistance to fire and heat, resistant to abrasion, and resistant to ice/thawing. Dekton comes in multiple tones and textures to suit the space you're designing. What more could we ask for?! There's endless possibilities here!

Design + Build - What does that mean???

Iverson_DesignBuild_infographic_v2-1.jpg

What is full service? Why is it a benefit? Why should you care? I thought I'd post some of that info on the blog as well as some of you aren't subscribed to the free newsletter. 

I won't explain too much here, cause it's broken down in the infographic above and it's also on my website to view + print, but I will say that I'm more than happy to answer any questions about it that aren't clear. One of the greatest benefits is the close communication and efficiency between the design side and the construction of the home. Having one design + build source can absolutely help save money because of streamlined communication and efficiency of having one office to talk with for all of the design and construction changes.

Nest | The iPhone of Thermostats

nest thermostat.jpg

 Nest is a revolutionary new thermostat from among others, a couple minds behind Apple's iPod. At first sight it's no question that it has a clean and simple design right down to the packaging, just like Apple is oh so well known for. Beyond the cool factor is the brains of it though. It's described as the only thermostat to improve with time. It actually learns how you live and follows your schedule to help you save energy by turning the thermostat up or down automatically. Pretty interesting. 

Of course it also offers an iPhone app so you can control it while you're away if you need to. Example, you're getting back into town and want to turn the AC on before you get there. Nest has built-in Wi-Fi so you can actually control it from anywhere inside the home as well, upstairs, down, etc. 

     It's easy to install to, it simply screws right into where your old thermostat sits. If you can switch out a light fixture, than you can do this.

Houzz - A great start for inspiration!

houzz-logo_300.jpg

If you're in search of a great site to find design inspiration, from interior design to outdoor spaces, pools and exterior details then Houzz.com is a great site to check out. What I like most about the site is the quality of the photos and the search tools. Whatever style of home or type of space you're looking for can be searched for very efficiently. They break down categories by the style you're looking for, whether eclectic, modern, traditional, asian, etc. It's also categorized by the type of space you're looking for and you can even search for local professionals by metro areas, including builders, interior designers, architects, pool contractors and photographers.

I always send new clients to this site to create what Houzz calls IdeaBooks. This way after an initial client meeting, they can add photos of styles or details that they like. They get organized in various ideabooks that can then be shared via email so I can see the vision they might have for their new home. 

Last but not least, Houzz offers a free iPad and iPhone app that showcases thousands of high quality photos on the go with access to all your ideabooks and inspiration.

If you're curious, I've got a professional profile on Houzz that has many of my projects and photos also.
