Entertain Your Guests in Style

Posted On June 5, 2015

Timber-Hill-Exterior-02A few helpful tips when entertaining outdoors…

  • Lighting.  Whether entertaining on your patio during the day or at night, lighting is key.  Ambiance can easily be created by adding candles or strings of lights.  Instead of traditional white lights, try red or blue to set the mood.
  • Décor. Adding vases of flowers or fresh plants sporadically throughout your entertainment space will liven up any area.  Having different arrangements of the same or similar color schemes will tie it all together.
  • Music. Instead of choosing a radio station or putting a mix on repeat, go for the iPod shuffle or turn on your favorite Pandora station.  Set the music loud enough to hear yet soft enough so people can engage in quiet conversation.
  • Food.  Creating the right dishes is key.  Keep it simple and stick to dishes you love. Chances are your guests will love them too.  If you like trying new recipes, prepare it in advance of the party to try it first as opposed to having your guests be your taste testers.
  • Relax.  Don’t spend your time worrying about everything being perfect.  The best hosts know when to be in the kitchen versus spending plenty of time with their guests.  Remember, although everyone will enjoy the lighting, décor, music and food, ultimately, they came to see you.

Artistic Solutions:
High Rise Living

Posted On April 29, 2015

  • So many people don’t realize the potential that rooftops can have. They are an undiscovered treasure that can give its owners dramatic and expansive views while preserving their privacy.

    Rooftops are a wonderful blank slate for architects and designers. So many different structures can be installed on them — terraces, gardens, apartments, houses, entertainment spaces — the sky is literally the limit.

    Designing a rooftop unit is a wonderful challenge. Square footage is at a premium and consideration has to be made for all sorts of details like storage space or seasonal weather changes. The most important thing, of course, is ensuring that each room gets the best view possible.

    One of the biggest misconceptions about rooftop homes is that they are intrinsically ultra-modern, cold, and aloof spaces. In reality, with the right designer, rooftop homes can be as warm and welcoming as you want them to be.

    Be inspired to create your own high rise habitat when you peruse some of Deep River’s most recent rooftop projects.

Artistic Solutions: Create Your Recreation Destination at Home With Your own Pool

Posted On April 7, 2015

  • When it comes to designing your home, including a pool is so much more than just adding a body of water. A pool can deeply affect the atmosphere and mood of your home. It can be a place of relaxation, fun, entertainment, and serenity.

    Designing the right pool is truly an art – a perfect blend of form and function. The best pools provide a variety of experiences, incorporating the fluidity and playfulness of water into the design while keeping it accessible for all ages. It can just as easily act as your home spa getaway as it can be an entertainment space for your friends and family.

    Take a look at our latest indoor pool project and be inspired to create your own in-home recreation destination.
