Sometimes when I visit new houses, I always find something – however big or small – that sits so proud in its place saying “I have a story”. The owners always share with me what that particular piece means to them and its significance and sentimental value.

I love watching new, modern, futuristic designs that ebb and flow along with the vintage statement pieces in houses. Have a look at this week’s article by HBD magazine, “Guiding sight lines” written by Alissa Schulman to know how you can create that perfect balance in your own home.

P.S. This transformation was so beautiful that it was filmed for HGTV’s Property Brother: Forever Home.
