If you’re updating your home or are planning to renovate, one easy way to create a cohesive look is to choose millwork from the same family.


Repeat Flooring Material, Finish, or Color

Rugs can help to define a space when floor planning, but they also help connect each room. I like to stick to 2-3 styles of rugs for a cohesive look.

Duplicate Window Treatments

All of the wood shades match and are of the same color family. No two rooms are alike, but they feel cohesive since I’m using variations of the same material.
