Winning Wine Storage Solutions

The things you learn. Five years ago I enjoyed wine, but I had no idea that my love of the vine would totally change the direction of my brand. It's OK to just enjoy a glass of wine, but I'm fascinated about how the grapes are grown and where, the people behind the labels, and lately I've been learning about how to properly store your growing wine collection.

When I met winemaker Jean-Charles Boisset I had no idea about how my world was about to change, but it did - in a wonderful way. Charming, passionate about his craft, and one of the best storytellers I have ever met. It was such a treat to interview him for CandysDirt.com and our article about wine storage.

Adding the Lifestylist touch to the new SKS Experience and Design Center was a dream come true. The new Signature Kitchen Suite wine preservation columns are the ideal way to not only showcase but to store your wines correctly - we think that you will love them as much as we do!

Building And Design Trends Shared on Candy'sDirt

What a great year it has been! So many new and exciting products - it's hard to know where to begin.

Candy'sDirt asked Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber to compile a Lifestylist List of her favorites - you can discover them with us here.

The 2016 International Builders Show, Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, Surfaces, and the Window Coverings Show are just days away - be sure to follow the Lifestylist on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to see what she discovers at the shows this year.

Decorating With Orchids

With design heading into a more minimalist look and feel, orchids are a perfect way to add life and color into your home. Orchids can be monochromatic, or a symphony of colors - it's your choice.

We loved this display at the Las Vegas World Market - what do you think?

Colorful New Home Design

Happy days are here again! Home building and sales are picking up, and consumers are more optimistic about the economy than they have been in years.

As a result of this interiors are lightening up and we are again seeing bright splashes of color in new homes and in model homes.

Lifestylist® Design recently completed this fun model for @home Builders in their Timber Banks community. Especially after the precious Budweiser commercial featuring a rescued dog, nothing sells lifestyle more than a dog. We used impactful artwork full of color to make the home memorable, and really made a statement with the teal leather barstools. The home had been a completed home that the builder decided to merchandise to help buyers understand how furniture would fit in the open floorplan. And it's working - there is now new interest in the homes.
