Dear Friends,

Joe and I just got back from a lovely vacation/family wedding in Hawaii. Being surrounded by all that awe-inspiring scenery was soul-affirming!

It also made me realize how fortunate we are to be in an industry that strives to build and create comfortable, efficient, and beautiful places for people to live. Truly, we are in the business of creating beauty that connects with every lifestyle. How wonderful is that?

What beautiful things have you been creating lately? Please share! We love hearing from you.

What we are Loving this Month!


Housing Industry Legend: Art Danielian

We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to sit down with a true giant in the world of architecture, hear his story, and glean some life and career lessons.


Biophilic Design  
You’ve probably been hearing about biophilic design a lot lately. Read more to learn why this term has become (seemingly) omnipresent. And how by incorporating biophilic principles in design can help homes sell.

Design to Inspire Happiness 
Capturing a potential buyer’s imagination through a model home can be tricky. However, knowing what designs will inspire happiness (and a desire to buy) is the key to success.

What We Are Loving This Month…
The Quick, Draw! website. This is such a fun online distraction. Basically, you’re given a prompt and you have to draw said prompt with your mouse within 20 seconds. Then the computer tries to guess what you’re drawing. If you are, let’s say, a less-than-a-gifted artist, the guesses are pretty humorous. Enjoy!
