open house reimagination

Joanna Saltz: How have you seen the use of people’s homes, whether indoors or out, change over the past year? How are people rethinking what their spaces mean to them? Rachel Cannon: One of the things I heard a lot from clients last year was that their homes are not really designed for them to be in—they’re designed for them to be somewhere else most of the time, and land there for a little while. And so, even though they do have dining rooms and offices, what they don’t have is a place to escape. Fernando Wong: Not just inside, but outside, too; we create different venues within the backyard for different activities, and spaces for gathering. WANT TO TALK?

how to choose the perfect mattress

MAKE IT PERSONAL Scale the size to your space and match the firmness to your sleep style. Map out your bedroom to determine whether a king or a queen would be the best fit. If you sleep with a partner (or pets!), it may be worth sizing up. Find the right feel—Firm, Plush, or Ultra Plush—based on your usual sleep position. THINK LONG TERM A high-quality mattress should last up to 10 years, so invest in comfort, durability, and support. Research how it’s made—the materials used for the interior and the exterior can have a major impact on comfort and durability over time. TRUST THE LEGACY Seek out a brand with a proven track record.
