Ready or Not, Daylight Savings in Coming
Whether we are ready or not, winter is coming. Sunday, November 7th, marks the day we “fall back” an hour, where the sun slips away early, taking our precious evening light with it. Our bodies have a system called the Circadian Rhythm, which works to regulate when our bodies are awake, and when it is time for sleep, all based on the lighting in our environment. This affects our mental state, our productivity, our sleep cycle and so much more. So, it’s important, but seems to struggle more in the winter with our limited daylight hours.

Have 15 Minutes to Chat this Week?
We were just working with a new client who was knee-deep in a kitchen renovation.

But they were totally lost on what kitchen cabinet pulls were best for them to bring it all together.

Nest with the Nelsons to the rescue! We set up a virtual design consultation, hashed out their overall vision for the project, talked about how quickly they may like to do another update or if they’d rather keep things evergreen. From there, we helped steer them to a common decision that they felt confident about that they won’t need to swap out next year.
