After the Holidays

I have been a bit distracted lately.  I will be the first to admit it.  Or maybe I’ve just had better things to do.  I’ll go with that.  Anyway, the Christmas lights are STILL up.  Both outside and inside.  I just can’t bring myself to take them down.  I  LOVE the way they glow and give the living room a warm and cozy feel.  That, and I’m being lazy.  Those two reasons.  BUT maybe there’s no need to take them all down.  I just fell down the rabbit hole of Pinterest and it seems there might be room for them to stay!

Accessorize

My family and I were lucky enough to make it to Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights this year and saw this beautiful fairy scene.

Christmas Lights Holidays

Well, you can create the same type of effect inside your home. For example, on an end table or even a bedside table.

Fairy Lights Decor

For a larger display, create multiple and cover the mantle or a long console table.

String Lights Inside Decor

Set the Mood

Then there is the bedroom.  Sometimes it can be hard to kind of break away from the chaos of the rest of the house.  Your master bedroom should be your escape.  Something as simple as white lights can set a really relaxing or romantic tone when used here.  It seems pretty simple.  Some white sheer curtains and some lights behind them, voila.  Time to unwind.

Twinkly Lights DIY

Send a Message

If you have a tween/teen girl, then you know girls loves their space.  My daughter loves anything that lights up.  Maybe because it feels a little magical somehow?  Something like this below makes a statement and looks pretty cool while doing so.
Dream Lights Bedroom

Take Cover

Forts!  I remember making these with my friends all the time growing up, so much fun.  If I would have thought about putting up lights in the fort (like below) I am not sure we would have ever come out!  And if the kids are in a fort like this, it makes it easier to escape to your bedroom getaway! But besides the kids, this is a cozy sanctuary for the adults to lounge around in too!

New Year, New You?

January 10, 2017

I sure hope not. By: Jeannine Miller (JMiller@MossBuildingandDesign.com) Please say you’ll stay just like you are.  The reason we’re friends is because I like you this way.  If you start losing a bunch of weight, you’re probably going to be really grumpy and start bringing crappy food to happy hour.  If you become Polly Positive, we won’t have nearly as many people things to talk about and we’ll probably start doubting our self-proclaimed perfection.  See the people below?  Friends for nearly 25 years.  Nothing has changed.  Well, nothing but marital status and number of dependents, but whatever. More than my own friends, though, I sincerely hope the general population doesn’t change.  If people resolve to, say, improve their intelligence, we will miss out on gems like these and that’s just not right. Let’s take a few lessons in the following subjects: Geography History Technology   English And finally, health   …

Basement Kitchens

January 5, 2017

By Pam Kopiak (PKopiak@MossBuildingandDesign.com) On a daily basis, I must yell “Get out of the kitchen!” at least 3 or 4 times.  My kids seem to LOVE being underfoot as I make dinner.  Never mind the newest Xbox set up in the living room with the LATEST football game out there.  Nope.  They want to kick a soccer ball around my feet or play with their Hot Wheels across the floor.  It drives me insane, I need them out!  This is where having a kitchen basement would come in handy. Small Kitchens This MOSS basement remodel in Ashburn, VA features a bar set up so you could send your guests downstairs to enjoy some beverages while simultaneously entertaining your children in the basement.  Set up a movie for them on the big screen and the adults can catch the football game on the bar screen.  I consider that a win/win. …

Incorporating Stone Into Your Remodel

January 3, 2017

By: Leora Kahn (LKahn@MossBuildingandDesign.com) Adding stone to your remodel can make a big impact on your overall design. Rustic decor is very popular right now, and stone accents make the perfect addition to a remodel. When remodeling your home, there are several things to consider, one of the toughest choices being which design theme to choose. There are several different styles ranging from contemporary, modern, transitional, farmhouse, traditional and more. One of our favorite styles right now is rustic with stone accents. This trend is becoming more and more popular, especially in kitchens. There are many ways to incorporate stone into your home remodel. Designing With Stone Simply put, stonework inside your home is beautiful. Designing with stone immediately differentiates your home from all the others. Stone creates the ability to accent any wall of your home and therefore enhance your living space. For example, one home in Centreville, Virginia, used stone …

Basement Wet Bar

December 30, 2016

By: Zaiba Hasan (ZHasan@MossBuildingandDesign.com) When renovating our home last year, we decided to update our basement kitchenette. With four young kids plus frequent out of town visitors, we have a myriad of people coming in and out of our home at all times. Containing the mess that is the basement allows ME to keep my sanity.  Given that this was a “bonus” kitchen of sorts, coming up with the appropriate design to fit our family needs was indeed a fun challenge.  Here are a few things to think about when creating an amazing bar area for your basement: Design Theme For me, coming up with the theme is the best part of any kind of renovation. With this type of remodel you can really let your imagination guide the choices you make.  Whether you decide to go with a sports bar theme or downtown chic, a wet bar can really be the focal …

Spaces to Remodel

December 28, 2016

By: Leora Kahn (LKahn@MossBuildingandDesign.com) Looking to remodel? Here are the crucial spaces you need to incorporate into your dream home: Tech Free Zone The idea of having a specific area in the home where technology is forbidden and crafts, reading, and other activities are encouraged. Allows for freedom of thought, a flow of creativity, and family bonding! Screened In Porch Porches are one of the best parts of the home. Screened in porches allow for a gathering place free of bugs and weather mishaps. They’re even huge even in the winter with heated floors or a fire place. Other big outdoor rooms to think about adding to your home are sun-rooms, or a four seasons room, which are typically in larger homes. Outdoor Fire Pit If you have patio, you have a fire pit. Simple as that. It is a timeless look built for family bonding and endless good times in any …

Design Trends for 2017

December 28, 2016

By: Zaiba Hasan (ZHasan@MossBuildingandDesign.com) As we roll into the New Year, the design trend inevitably starts to review the latest and greatest design trends.  Pick up a copy of Home and Design, Elle, Décor or Architectural Digest magazine and you will see the latest designs, colors and the most beautiful rooms out there.  It’s terrific art, here’s the problem.   It’s…terrific…art.   The latest version of HGTV Magazine talks about the hot new trend of velvet furniture.   That’s great for Hollywood celebrities and singles.   But can parents (or grandparents, aunts, uncles) really put a velvet sofa in the living room when little Johnny (or in my case Z4) drinks Kool-Aid in there? The challenge is coming up with trends that work.  Practical, useful, beautiful.  But most important – livable.  Good design is about how American families live…so chatting with my buddy Dawn from Dawn Earles Design we came up with the best takeaway …

Last Minute Holiday Tips

December 21, 2016

By Pam Kopiak (PKopiak@MossBuildingandDesign.com) Don’t panic! It’s just a few days until the holidays and there’s still a ton to do.  Last minute shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking.  Ok, maybe I should panic. No, I should KEEP CALM and carry on…that’s what that saying is right?  I can do this.  I just need to make it to Christmas Eve when I get to finish the last of the wrapping while watching Home Alone and sipping on hot cocoa.  If you are in a bit of a frenzy right, here are a few tips to keep in mind. Decoration Safety Tips I think we all know a person or two who waits until the VERY last minute to put up their holiday decorations.  I personally don’t understand it because I feel like if I am going to put in the effort, I might as well enjoy it for a WHILE (not the entire year though …
