Last Style Me Sunday we focused on one of our favorite Southeastern city’s Southern Gothic styles. Now we’re turning our attention out west. Elements like warm copper, weathered wood, and hand woven textiles are going to make a big impact on fall styles. Now, before you deck your home out with vibrant decor from your favorite Taco-shack, remember: It’s good to start small and infuse a new infuse a new trend instead of overwhelming your space. Select fine quality pieces, that will make the transition from season to season. We’re veering away from the beach and embracing the summer heat with Arizona flair!Read More
Springtime got us in the mood to revive our gardens and summer has us wanting to play. From playing in the sprinklers in the back yard, frisbee in the front, or waxing the car in the driveway, this is the time of year to engage with the outdoors. If you’re like me, the garage is the ultimate hangout. Many fond summer memories were created while sipping on a glass of lemonade as I watched my dad grilling just outside.Read More

Nestled into a slope on the southern shore of Lake Simcoe just north of Toronto, a one-room sleeping cabin offers a peaceful respite from the rest of the world. The homeowners desired a retreat from their main cottage, located just up the hill, where they could enjoy the waterfront views. The award-winning design is a glass cabin surrounded on three sides by cedar slats. Inside the 275-square-foot space, the bare essentials include a bed with built-in drawers, storage cabinets, and a wood-burning stove. Above the bed, a modern ceiling fan helps stir the summer breezes and, in the winter, circulate the warm air provided by the wood stove.Read More
In this master bedroom, the classic tropical feel is evident. As soon as you walk in, you’re embraced by the light and breezy colors and the palm tree ornamentations throughout. While most seasoned design veterans cringe at the thought of the standard tropical beach bedroom, you know, palm tree pillows, wallpaper, upholstery, the list goes on, this master suite was done right!
Only the slightest hints at the equatorial decor helped to land this master bedroom on Coastal Living’s gallery of their favorite rooms to rest in – can you blame them? No bright colors to disrupt your REM cycle, but a light and airy feel for those afternoon naps following a day in the sun. Sometimes, those humid temperatures can get you all hot and bothered, which is why a simple ceiling fan was a necessity here.Read More
Lots of light and a stunning view of the Texas Hill Country are the main features of this beautiful space which includes an elongated kitchen, dining area, and living room. The floor-to-ceiling windows on the left give a real sense of being outdoors and on the right, the counter running the length of the room provides plenty of work space above and storage space below. Although one long, open space, each area is neatly defined with the placement of furniture, and both table and floor lamps provide ambient lighting to complement all of the natural light. Keeping the Texas heat at bay are two sleek modern ceiling fans, much like our Zonix Ceiling Fan, with a finish to match the stainless kitchen appliances.
The Zonix Ceiling Fan sports minimalist style with its three blades that feature a 54″ sweep. You can create a number of different looks with this fan by choosing the same finish for both the housing and blades, or getting a bit creative by mixing and matching finishes. The housing comes in either a satin nickel or oil rubbed bronze finish. Two blade sets are available including the matching satin nickel finish or a reversible set that features cherry on one side and walnut on the other. You can add a light kit to this fan, and downrods come in eight sizes ranging from six inches to 72 inches.
Now you may ask yourself….do ceiling fans really help cut cooling and heating costs? The answer, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, is a definite yes! In the summer, ceiling fans can reduce your use of air conditioning by creating a breeze in the room which gives a wind-chill effect on your skin. In the winter, by reversing the blade direction, you can help force the rising warm air back down into the room to keep you cozy!
