Slocum Street Style 2012 Another Success

Slocum Street Style 2012 was once again a great success. Yesterday evening, Slocum Street brimmed with design enthusiasts and curious others strolling along leisurely from showroom to showroom in the twilight of the evening. Each showroom was full of the bustle of lively conversation.

The spread at McGannon Showrooms

They helped soothe the growl of people’s stomachs by serving light bites and drinks. Also featured in each showroom were individual raffle prizes for people in attendance. For those with bigger appetites, there were food trucks located on a few street corners filled with the smells of mouth-watering food.

The Kitchen Source had chefs from Subzero whip up some scrumptious tex mex finger foods for guests.

Spruce Up Those Shelves

 

Spruce up shelves by giving them a charming and cohesive look, with an exciting backdrop, by applying contact paper, bright paint, scrapbook paper, or fabric to the back of a bookshelf. If you don't want to commit to a particular design or color scheme, measure the bookshelf's back panel and mount the background material on poster board cut to the size of each shelf. This can really give a space a whole new ambiance.

Are Wardrobes Replacing Walk-Ins?

Photo by Kirk McCoy

Think of it as the closetless closet, or perhaps the closet turned inside out. Just as kitchens have opened up to become free-flowing spaces connecting to dining areas and family rooms, so too are closets losing their doors — and in many cases, their walls.

When Robert Sweet remodeled Joe Borst's Marina del Rey house [full article and photo gallery], he eliminated formal closets in favor of built-in wardrobes and storage units lining the master bedroom wall and entryway.

Ginny Snook Scott, vice president at California Closets, sees the trend as the American home comes full circle. In the 1920s, she said, closets with doors increasingly replaced armoires. In the 1950s, larger closets with sliding doors spread across suburbia. The love affair with the walk-in closet began in the 1980s, and by the 1990s, his-and-hers walk-ins were not uncommon. By the early 2000s, closets in larger homes had reached the size of small bedrooms — or actually were converted bedrooms.
