Shades and Highlights: Things We Like June 2012

Welcome to the first installment of “Shades and Highlights,” a monthly article dedicated to revealing some of Highlight Homes’ favorite new (and not-so-new) discoveries. Because we are aware that a home remodel may merely serve as the solid foundation of any residential makeover – a blank canvas, if you will – we’d like to take this opportunity to point you in the right direction with regard to filling that canvas with color, texture, “shades and highlights” in order to showcase your home sweet home in the best light imaginable.

Things we like this month include:

  • Lonny Magazine – This exquisitely written, photographed and designed publication is jam-packed with ideas and imagery that can fuel any interior design project – from comfortably casual to luxuriously lavish. Flip through each elegant page online, and feel your imagination take flight.
  • South of Market – The brainchild of visionary Southern interior designer, Kay Douglass, this trendy shop boasts locations in Atlanta and Charleston. Customers are presented with a true treasure hunt as they journey through an extensive inventory of “the rare, the beautiful and the can’t live without”. Unable to get to the store? No worries. Many items are also available for purchase online.
  • Boise Cascade – As dedicated to sustainability as we are, Boise Cascade is a leading manufacturer of engineered wood products, plywood, particle board, doors and more – much of which Highlight Homes uses in our quality crafted home renovations and custom home construction. The best part is – while they are an internationally recognized company – their Georgia distribution center is located right up the road in Auburn, GA.
  • Sherwin Williams – Whether you’re talking about a gorgeous kitchen renovation or a complete exterior facelift, we always recommend Sherwin Williams paints and stains. They have a wonderful application on their website called the Color Visualizer, where visitors can upload photos of a room or the exterior of their home and “paint” the space with a wide variety of shades and hues from the Sherwin Williams collection. It’s fun and enlightening!
