After having your ideal home designed and built, then comes the fun part of decorating and maintaining your new or renovated casa. It’s easy to get swept away for hours on pinterest and houzz gathering ideas, but when it’s time to make decisions and order materials, the project gets real, real quick.

If you do a little homework you can find quality, low maintenance finishes and fixtures for a variety of budgets and decor styles. You just need to know where to look. Whether you want to change from traditional to contemporary or select a new stone countertop that won’t stain at your next dinner party, we can offer you guidance that will make the decisions easier.

Dallas architects, Laura and Holly of hpd architecture + interiors share tips on organizing, decorating, and maintaining your home. Don’t go it alone. We are here to help.
