Make an Entrance: Our Favorite Doormats

Back when we were installing #clientbowfinlane, we posted a shot of the super fun doormat we chose for our clients. It read “Come in, we’re awesome!” which perfectly captured the free-spirited vibe of the house and the clients who will be making memories there. Judging from our amount of DMs about the doormat, you all seemed to love it! So we’re excited to bring you a roundup of our favorite doormats. A fresh doormat is a wallet-friendly way to update your entry and serves as the ultimate first impression of your home. See our favorites below, including the same one we used at #clientbowfinlane.

It’s Getting Hot in Here: Ceiling Fan Roundup

June 11, 2019

Living at the beach provides endless perks but let’s face it, it gets hot. Like, really hot. Even with your air conditioning cranking, a ceiling fan adds that fresh, moving air to cool off your space year round.  We almost always incorporate ceiling fans into our coastal interior design projects, whether it’s in the master bedroom, a back porch or a living room with vaulted ceilings. As a bonus, many ceiling fans these days are just as beautiful as they are practical. We’ve rounded up our favorite ceiling fans here, all of which can be ordered through online retailers linked below.
