TMID In Print | Magazine Feature

If you live in the Seminole county area, you may have seen some of our work recently. Interior Appeal magazine recently published photos of two town homes we designed for Park Square Homes — the Washington & Lincoln. To be published in a 6 page spread is amazing and an incredible honor but it gets even better! We were featured on the cover!

The family room from the Washington model with it’s bright pop of color and modern vibes was selected to grace the Spring/Summer issue cover! While the work is ours, we know that good design is best appreciated through good design photography. So we would be remiss to ignore the fact that Stephen Allen photographed these rooms and does incredible work. We are grateful to him and Orange Appeal for giving our work a voice! Check out the full magazine here and be sure to check out pages 92-97!

Recent Happenings | TMID on TV!

Fall is almost here! And we are so excited to start drinking our PSLs and lighting our Fall candles. Let’s be honest, it’s way too hot outside for boots or any of that, but even in Florida, we have our ways of getting ready for the season. Labor Day weekend, the big benchmark to enter into the Fall season, we were asked to do a feature on Good Day Orlando about how to get your home ready for the season. So our owner, Christina Kairis, did a fun little feature that aired on Labor Day morning.

Not only are the items that she features inexpensive but they are easily accessible. Check out the clip to get all the deets!

Style Identification | Modern Farmhouse

Joanna Gaines has made modern farmhouse and highly-sought out style.  It's casual, comfortable, lived-in, unpretentious and versatile.  For families with kids, it allows mom to have a space she feels looks finished and stylish while also being able to incorporate function for her family.  So we're here today to highlight this fun style and explain exactly what factors you should look for when implementing or identifying the modern farmhouse style.

One of the biggest parts of modern farmhouse is the wood elements scattered throughout. If your home has wood beams, that's a huge modern farmhouse element.  These are reminiscent of old barns and exposed trusses and give a home a warm element.

The kitchen is a huge part of tying the design style together in any home but a modern farmhouse kitchen is truly the heart of the home.  A modern farmhouse kitchen is well-used and well-loved.  It's not pristine. matchy-matchy, and perfectly tailored.  It's a little eclectic and exposed.   Open shelving is common element in the modern farmhouse because your grandmas cups should be on display!  Modern farmhouse kitchens have a variety of cabinet colors in the kitchen but whites and navys are used most often.

It wouldn't be a farmhouse without a barn door.  And since barn doors can be added at any point, it's an easy element to include even if you're redecorating your house to make it look modern farmhouse without doing a lot of remodeling.  The great thing about barn doors is that they come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes so it doesn't take much to find one that will work in your home.

Once you get to the furnishings part of your modern farmhouse, there are a few elements that are essential to flow with the the theme.  The first is a wood dining table (usually trestle) oftentimes with bench seating.  This goes with the whole "the kitchen is the heart of the home" mentality and the functionality of a dining area for large parties.  Wood furniture is warm and relatively inexpensive.  It can be beautiful in pristine condition and also fit in well after it's been used and has some character.  Benches are also a much more casual look in the dining room and lots of kids can be squeezed on one for maximized seating. :)

Finally, woven furniture and accents are another essential element when decorating a modern farmhouse style home.  Rattan and sea grass area all over the furnishings market in the version of chairs, lights, baskets, and even door fronts.  You'll have no shortage of options to incorporate into your home.

What do you think?  Are you ready to re-decorate your home in the modern farmhouse style? It's really not that hard!  We promise!

 

 

More Recent Happenings | TMID on TV (again)!

Guess what?!  We were on the Good Day Orlando, again!  Our owner, Christina, did a segment on gallery walls.  She discusses how to create one using random art and objects that you probably already have at your own house including children's art (which we know can pile up!)  You'll see her create a great gallery wall on the spot that makes a great statement and also feels personal but cohesive.

Aside from that, you'll be able to see some of our other gallery walls that we've installed.  It's super fun and informative so be sure to check it out!

Recent Happenings | TMID on TV!

We recently started working with Fox 35's Good Day Orlando to do some sort segments on design.  The first two segments featured quick tips on how to update a space without spending a ton of money.  The first was a bedroom where we were able to swap out and update simple items to give it a more serene, relaxing feel and the second was a family room that needed to be "fluffed" for holiday entertaining.  

It's been so great working with Danielle and the team at Good Day Orlando and we are so excited about this partnership!  The links to both episodes are below.

The most recent segment featured our WJ model, The Brantley in Lake Sylvan Oaks.  We featured this in an earlier post because, even though it was a model home, it was the most custom model home we've ever done and turned out amazing!  It was even entered in this year's Parade of Homes!  Be sure to check it out!
