1. We have sold over 7,000 feet of fabric since Holly opened the doors in February 2003… That’s about 1.35 miles of fabric!

 2. Our previous office space was located in the Ford Center downtown Minneapolis where they once built the Ford Model T.

 3. Holly was named “Emerging Talent of the Year” in 2005 by the American Society of Interior Design.

 4. Since we started our design blog in May of 2009, we have had just about 30,000 views and have posted 198 entries.

 5. We have worked on projects all around the country… from Minnesota to Florida to Arizona and places in between!

And now… for the rest of the story…

To conclude our wrap up of blogs from the past year, we’ve noted a few entries from the last part of 2010.

In July, we posted the  ‘after photos’ from the 2010 ASID Showcase Home  where we designed the Front Porch on the Lake of the Isles home. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/07/06/showcase-home-porchafters/

In August, we highlighted three of the main color trends for fall: Magenta and Chocolate, Yellow, Grey and White, and eggplant. See the fresh combo of yellow, grey and white here: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/08/03/color-trends-yellow-grey-and-white/

In September, we showcased three themes for table top decor ideas for hosting fall dinner parties. These themes can translate easily to parties throughout the year. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/09/fall-dinner-parties/

In October, we posted a few pictures from a custom window installation. We used the same fabric on the cornice board and to upholster a wing chair in this lovely music room. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/10/14/hauthaus-installation-day/

In November, we showed you how to make a feather wreath with Holly. Did you make one? If so, we’d love to see pictures! 🙂 https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/make-a-holiday-feather-wreath-with-holly/

In December, we showed you how to create a fabulous holiday table using things you might find in your kitchen cabinets and your front yard! https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/holiday-table-decor-with-hauthaus/

Here’s a quick wrap up of some of the entry highlights from our blog throughout the year.

We covered everything from the 2010 ASID Showcase House to tips on what you can do to give your home a mini face lift. And from the latest projects we’ve worked on to the latest and greatest in lighting design.

In January, we gave you some quick and easy tips on how to re-fresh your home after the holidays: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/01/12/january-tips-for-a-quick-pick-me-up-for-your-home/

In February, we highlighted some of the custom furniture pieces we have designed for our wonderful clients: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/custom-furniture-designed-by-hauthaus/

In March, we posted some lovely detail shots from a home furnishings project we completed in Plymouth: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/03/12/design-in-the-details/

In April, with the spirit of the Twins’ first season at Target Field in mind, we highlighted some sassy products in red and blue: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/04/14/red-for-me-blue-for-you/

In May, the 2010 ASID Showcase house was in full swing and we posted pictures and the story of how the hauthaus front porch came to be: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/story-of-a-hauthaus-porch/

In June, we showcased some of the new lighting trends for 2010: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/whats-new-in-lighting-design/

Happy New Year! Please stay tuned for the wrap up of July – December to come later this week!

The 2010 ASID Showcase Home Tour has come and gone. What a great 4 weeks it was! Thank you to all who came to support ASID, the four beneficiaries, and great interior design!

If you didn’t get a chance to go take a peek inside, here are some of our after shots from the front porch at the Isles home…

Porch highlights:

  • We sanded down the floor, which was covered in paint, and found Douglas Fir flooring that was original to the home, built in 1908.
  • To add color and texture, we applied a navy vinyl floor covering to the ceiling.
  • Since the homeowner is a world traveller, we incorporated many of his own pieces into the design.
  • We specified furniture from Grange’s new outdoor line from KDR Showrooms.
  • All of the fabrics in the space are indoor/outdoor from KDR Showrooms.
  • Palm leaf ceiling fans were installed to circulate fresh air.
  • Antique furniture pieces and accessories were found at Spinario Design in Northeast Minneapolis.
  • A new Waverton Cambria top was fitted to an existing antique Weiman table in the seating area.

What are some of your favorite design features? We’d love to know!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2010 ASID Showcase Home Tour!

This project helped raise money for ASID, Cornerstone, The Jeremiah Program, Second Harvest Heartland, and the Junior League of St. Paul.

We hope that you enjoyed your tour of the home on Lake of the Isles and the condo at the Edgewater on Lake Calhoun.

time is running out!

June 7, 2010

Hey guys and gals!

Time is running out to see, for the first time in history, TWO ASID Showcase Homes for the price of ONE ticket!

Edgewater Condo at Lake Calhoun

 

Designers at the Edgewater Condos on Lake Calhoun used their design skills to transform an empty condo shell with no walls, electric or plumbing into a sleek, sophisticated home with a stellar view of the lake. The condo has a luxurious, serene feel that uses blues, greens, and sand tones that were inspired by the nearby lake.

Dan Buettner's home on Lake of the Isles

Six blocks away is Dan Buettner’s home on Lake of the Isles Parkway. Dan is an explorer who believes a healthy lifestyle contributes to longevity. His home was designed with these health tips in mind. This home has a lot of flavor and spice; all of the designers incorporated art and artifacts that Dan has collected on his travels around the world.

Don’t forget to stop by! The tour is open NOW- JUNE 13th. Wednesday -Sunday, 10-4pm.

Tickets are available at: http://www.mspmag.com/promotions/wherewe’llbe/asidhometour2010/171678.asp

ASID does this project as a fundraiser for the local chapter as well as four other fabulous local beneficiaries:
