Back to School, Flooring Trends and other Jamie Gold Articles

houzz interior design ideas

It’s another book-writing deadline week for me, so rather than create a new blog post, I’m sharing links to some articles I’ve written recently that may be of value to you or your friends.

Here’s one on getting your household in back to school shape.  It’s about that time of year when you’ve figured out what doesn’t work!  Here are some tips for what does.

This article on butler’s pantries will help you entertain at holiday time.  This one on morning kitchens will help you recover from holiday entertaining!

Here are the latest flooring trends for your home.
