    10 THINGS NOBODY TELLS YOU ABOUT SUBWAY TILE

    For all the wild popularity of subway tile (over 200 stories in our archives mention the term—we checked), it turns out there’s still a lot to learn. Here on the Remodelista team, we’ve long known that subway tile is practical, timeless, and works in interiors of all types. But what exactly counts as subway tile? And, where did it come from? We have to admit, we weren’t sure. So we did some digging. Here are 10 things you might not know.

  • Can Designers and Builders Be Friends?

    Can Designers And Builders Be Friends - Blog by Eve's Creations

    At first glance, designers and builders don’t seem to have much in common. Builders create the functional structure of a home or room, while designers add the decorative details that make a space comfortable. But the best finished projects come from a tight collaboration between both the designer and the builder.

    To produce the best results on your project — whether that’s adding on a new bathroom or constructing a custom home — it’s best if your designer is part of the team throughout all stages of the project. You may think that the designer only has to come in after the construction is done and the dust is cleaned up, but in reality, the designer needs to have an influence on the structure to help create the best finished space.

    I Speak Architect - Why Working Closely With Project Professionals Ensures A Great Design Outcome -  Blog by Eve's Creations

    Your interior design project is going to run much more smoothly when all the professionals involved understand each other and can collaborate well.

    Besides being skilled at understanding contractors, I also speak the language of another important member of your design team: the architect. Architects are responsible for planning the structure of the building and designing the way the space will flow. A good architect combines engineering and art to produce a house or other building that works well for the people who will be using it and is visually pleasing.

  • Quick Tip #7: Construction

    By Eve's Creations |

    Plan for a safe in your home.

    It is easy and relatively inexpensive to put a wall or floor safe within your home.  With a little planning, a “hotel type”  safe can be installed between the framing studs in a closet.  If you are looking for something more substantial, a recess in the foundation or behind a shelf is also easy to do when considered early in the design process.

  • Quick Tip #6: Landscape Lighting

    By Eve's Creations |

    This can be a very big budget item.  But the good news is that it can be very easily added later.  Often people get “budget fatigue” by the end of a project. Some things are essential right away (like sprinklers and grass), but the other items to consider for later can always be added on.  Fountains and accent lighting can make the yard truly special…but can be phased into your plan in the years to come.

    I Speak Contractor - A Discussion With The Mind Behind Eve’s Creations -  Blog by Eve's Creations

    Designing a home is a matter of balancing beauty and precision. Many clients have a broad vision, but an unclear way of attaining it. Enlisting the expertise of an experienced designer, construction manager, or decorator is an extremely personal matter. With almost 18 years both spent in design and construction, I walk the fine line of that balance. There is a “gap” between the two disciplines. I understand and bridge this gap for my clients. Essentially, I speak “contractor”, and have done so for quite some time. When it comes to successful architectural design, I have found two things to be steadfast: A…
