Valentine’s Day: The Holiday of LOVE! With so much commercialism, it is hard to remember the true reason we all look forward to holidays. They give us a break from the normal every day routine and allow us an opportunity to take a few minutes to focus on the meaning of the holiday.
I love Valentine’s Day and have hosted many dinner parties to gather with friends in celebration of LOVE! I go all out. The table is set with fine china, white embroidered table cloth, and fresh flowers. I prepare a special dinner with at least two desserts and, of course, there is always chocolate. Each guest is asked to tell a special story of how they met or something funny that happen in their adventures with their partner over the years. The wine and stories flow.
It’s that time of year again! The holidays are finally upon us. The season where we are joined by our loved ones to break bread and escape the chaos and stress that daily life may bring. The moments we have with friends and family are precious and irreplaceable. The word community and fellowship come to mind when I think of this busy season. It is the time of year that symbolizes coming together and opening our hearts and homes. The table represents and embodies the sense of togetherness and welcoming our differences. In the spirit of communion, my design tips this month focus on tablescape inspiration for the holidays.
It’s time to celebrate! Janus Design Group is now 10 years old! As we commemorate 10 years as a design firm this October, we are so incredibly thankful for our wonderful clientele. We count our blessings daily, for the amazing design opportunities we’ve enjoyed over this last decade in partnership with each of you. What started as a personal passion to help others transform their spaces into environments they would find inspiring has become a business dream come true. Thank you for your continued support and trust.
With the end of summer, I am reminded of all the opportunity that fall brings. We have a chance to re-think and refresh all areas in our lives that have taken a back seat during the relaxed summer months. This could be a desk space, a cluttered chest of drawers or a whole room.
It’s not a surprise that I felt very inspired by my recent trip to Orange County, California. I was overwhelmed by the beautiful beaches, the incredible art culture, the food, and of course O.C. design.
