On the road again with Designingwomen2
Story & Photography by Kari Rasmus, DW2
We always look forward to the Las Vegas World Market and our chance to share with you the latest design trends. This year’s market did not disappoint. While the finds were not substantially different from previous years’, there were new twists on old ideas that we can't wait to bring to Fargo. But, let’s back up for a moment. We implore you, please don’t follow a trend unless it speaks to you; a trend, by its very nature, is mercurial and temporary. On the flip side, choosing the right trends can keep your environment looking fresh. So, in the interest of staying fresh, we're taking you to Market to show you DW2 partners’ favorite looks.

When Jon and Lisa Hanson decided to complete their home's basement, contacting Monica Hart Interior Design, was at the top of their list. The family had lived in their South Fargo home for over six years, working with Hart to complete the design upstairs, as well as the interior design of their lake home. While the Hansons requested a brighter and more modern upstairs, they felt the downstairs needed a little more drama, starting from scratch to create a modern, rustic-inspired space with equal parts drama and function. This month, we'll take you underground for a tour of the family's newly completed basement, with the help of Hart and her design assistant, Max Pickett.

The Farmhouse Project: Room #9

The saying is true, it was worth the wait! After completing eight room remodels, my husband, Tate, and I took a much-needed hiatus. Last month, we were back at it and finally finished a complete remodel of the front living room in our ongoing “farmhouse” project. We’ve now been living here for almost five years and this room sits front and center near the main foyer. It’s the first to be seen, and yet somehow it was the last to be completed of our main living spaces. We're too tired to explain ourselves, so we'll jump right in and show you what a few massive windows can do to capture the view and inspire the room.
