Interior designer, home stager, and now lighting designer — Becki Owens is doing it all! With both her her parents renovating houses, and her dad having a paint store, Becki was basically born into the world of interior design, so it’s no surprise that this is where life has taken her. Now a popular designer, blogger, and trendsetter Becki Owens is well known for her fresh “Pinterest-worthy” designs.

Now that they’re in stores and available at reasonable prices, let’s take a look at why the curvy furniture trend is one to bring home.

We’re now entering the heart of winter, which means cold temperatures and snow are on their way. While fortunately there hasn’t been much snow yet this winter here at France & Son HQ, we know it’s on its way. So to help prepare ourselves for being surrounded by white outside, we rounded up some of our favorite white interiors on Pinterest. Let’s take a look at some cool white space and see if they help us feel more ready for winter weather.

Lighting is super important to a room. The right light can make a space shine while bad lighting can make a room almost unbearable. Once you’ve found the perfect lighting you may be hesitant to change it out. But time waits for no one, and trends keep changing, so eventually your favorite lamp might start to look a little stale. So if it’s time to make a change, what better time than the beginning of a new year? Let’s take a look at what kind of lights will be illuminating spaces in 2019.

Luckily there are some easy ways to help keep your home warm that don’t cost much (if anything at all!). …

2018 is in its last few weeks and everyone is wondering what 2019 will bring. Paint companies started announcing their Color of the Year for 2019 as early as June, and with Pantone’s announcement of their Color of the Year earlier this month now is the time to take a look at what colors will be filling our homes in the coming year. We rounded up Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Behr, Sherwin Williams, and PPG’s Color of the Year picks and tossed in our own as well. Are you ready for some color?
