Community Connection Video Series

A few months back, we started our Community Connection video series. While we’re still doing our Community Focal Point blog column, we wanted to mix it up with some videos taken with local small business owners and representatives of charities and non-profits.

You can view all the videos we’ve done to-date here: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMVPTRa7c3oeUn_WsIsPxmw

If you like what we’re doing, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel to receive notifications every time we upload a new video!

And don’t forget to contact us if you’re interested on being featured either on Community Connection or on Community Focal Point!

Design Trends: Black and White

The black and white color combo is often associated with clean lines, simplicity, and sophistication. Black and white pair well together in spaces, but can sometimes come off too stark and boring. When composing a palette of black and white monochrome, it’s important to mix in a few complimentary patterns to keep the space interesting. Symmetry in furniture or object arrangement helps to keep it grounded. To keep the room from seeing too cold and uninviting, use some plusher, more inviting fabrics like velvet, knits, wool, and faux furs.
