Home Is Where the Heart Is

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Jennifer Carter Sowers, Nicolette Martin

FOR SOME, HOME IS WHERE THE FAMILY IS. It's the place where weekends were—or still are—filled with kids coming and going, movie and popcorn nights and Saturday morning cartoons... Ok, we probably ARE dating ourselves with that last one.   For others, home is where the rest is. It's the place where, after a long day, they go to relax; where they spend meaningful time with friends and loved ones, enjoy homecooked meals and settle in on a comfy couch to a good book or great conversation. For some, home is where the work is. It's where they build their dreams, where they start their businesses and where they work day in and day out for success.   And for us here at Midlothian Lifestyle, home is a bit of all of the above AND where the heart is. It's also in the meaningful stories we get to share about the amazing people in our Midlothian community.     We had so much fun with this issue—from dream homes with Biringer Builders and

WOVEN + KNOTTED LIVING BOHO-CHIC WITH WOVEN TEXTURES AND MACRAMÉ Decorate your space with handmade textures such as the modern, maker revival of 1970s macramé and year-round tropical feel of wicker. MACRAMÉ Made through knotting instead of weaving, macramé can add a unique touch in many various ways. Houzz contributor Laura Gaskill suggests incorporating it as nursery decor, plant hangers, wall hangings and modern fiber arts. WICKER According to Houzz contributor Yanic Simard, “the best way to really embrace the luxury-cottage appeal of wicker and rattan is to combine different forms of the two in one space ... Look for other unexpected places to add a natural twist to your home with a new material woven into your palette.”

RENOVATE & REFINE

(CON TI N U ED)

AGAINST THE GRAIN TIPS FOR DECORATING WITH NATURAL MATERIALS Houzz contributor Katie Treggiden offers many ways to incorporate natural materials and natural-state timber into your home, including using wood to cover one wall in a home for a pleasing accent wall; featuring your firewood as a striking, stacked display; and mixing different types of wood and different finishes in the same space. “A simple way to incorporate the wood trend is to expose structural wooden beams already present in your home,” Katie says. “Instead of painting them or boxing them in, leave them raw or give them a coat of wax to enrich the tones.” 32
