Riss Home Design

What’s one of your favorite design pieces you have in your own home?

One of my newest pieces that I am loving, is a simple wooden tripod style lamp. I’ve come to realize that it’s the simple, modern looking pieces that really catch my eye these days. I absolutely love the look of a tripod lamp!

What is your favorite design trend of 2017?

I’ve been seeing a lot of modern mosaic furniture and art lately. I really love the look of blue mosaic, or anything neutral with a pop of color. I recently purchased a side table with a blue and white mosaic top for our front porch, and every time I see it I think of Greece. It’s pieces like that, that bring back memories or make you think of something you love that really make me happy. I’ve also been loving the mirrored look on furniture!

Do you follow any other blogs for inspiration?  If so, which ones?

I LOVE BowerPowerBlog.com – I’ve been following Katie’s blog for years. She can turn anything into something beautiful, and I’m very envious of her tool collection! I also follow 4 Men 1 Lady – I love Michelle’s home and every project she does!

Can you explain a recent project you’ve been working on?

Last week I did a project on how to make a vintage looking sign for your living room (in 15 minutes!) with a DIY wood stain using paint. I’m currently working on a bunch of projects for our home, but I’m excited to also do a post next week on a $50 bathroom makeover!
