7 Exterior Window Trim Ideas to Inspire your Next Home Project

Windows complete any home’s design. From an interior standpoint, they help let in light and allow those inside a chance to take in the view. From the exterior, windows help complete the home’s style and curb appeal.

And while a lot of emphasis gets placed on how to finish interior windows (with window treatments and styles being the subject of many homeowners’ concerns), window exteriors often need just as much help. But while window coverings are often the solution for the interior, it’s window trim that helps complete the look on the outside. 

Trim helps frame a window, giving it definition and dimension as well as style and design. If you’re looking for ways to finish your exterior windows, take a look at these 7 design ideas for inspiration.

Selecting the Right Window Trim

Window trim is necessary to every exterior. Trim helps cover the edge between siding and the

Sita Montgomery Interiors: Local Client Project: A Neutral Family Room

A few weeks ago I showed you a sneak peak of a local family room project I have been working on. I am happy to say that the room is almost complete. We just have a few more accessories to add, and then the space will be ready for professional photographers. I snapped a quick picture while I was at my client’s home yesterday, and I wanted to share it with you.  Here is what the room looked like when I saw it for the first time…


and here is what it looks like now…


The largest impact in this room was made by the floor to ceiling V-Board we had installed on two of the walls. Painting it a bright white helped create the perfect background for a calming neutral room. I used one of my favorite fabrics, Celerie Kemble’s Hot House Flowers in Mineral, to bring

Jordan Project Reveal: Exterior and Entryway

Part One of the Jordan Whole-Home Renovation & Addition

This past fall, we completed an incredible whole-home renovation project (including all furniture, textiles, window treatments, and styling) in Jordan, Minnesota. No detail went unnoticed and we couldn’t love the final result more. 

We’ll be sharing out different areas of the home as part of our project reveal series, so be sure to stay tuned for that. In the meantime, we’re kicking off our renovation reveal with the start of the home tour: the exterior and entryway. So, without further ado, let’s jump right in.



As much as we all adore interior shots, the truth is that the exterior of a home matters just as much, and if we’re being honest, perhaps a bit more. First impressions of a property carry immense value, so striking the right visual balance on this gorgeous estate was essential.

Because this home had beautiful

6 Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper Patterns for Your Latest DIY Decor Project

As the new coronavirus spreads, I’m even more grateful than usual for my home, where I’m now spending basically all of my time. But studio life isn’t without challenges—doing everything in one room is hard. My peel-and-stick wallpaper habit is really a godsend right now.

I spent months deliberating over and applying (then reapplying) wallpaper until I found something that stuck in more ways than one. And now, in light of the newfound quality time I’m spending at home, those design choices have helped keep me sane. The moody floral mural behind my canopy bed makes it feel like I actually have a bedroom, even though I don’t have any walls designating one. The black-and-gold bee pattern near my TV complements my couch and sends a message to my brain that maybe, just maybe, I have an open living room and kitchen space. My point? Peel-and-stick wallpaper helps control the

Learning Design – The Project

Following: An example, How to construct a sequence, An early version

An Example of a Learning Design Sequence

The project evolved a graphical representation mechanism to describe and document the generic learning design foci in terms of the tasks, resources and supports that would be required in the learning setting. This mechanism was later applied to contextualised designs.

A ‘Learning Design Sequence’ representation uses the following graphical notation:

  • Squares represent Tasks.
  • Triangles represent Resources.
  • Circles represent Supports.

Here is an example describing one particular (contextualised) learning design. (Note that POE = “Predict – Observe – Explain”):



The project team considers the Learning Design Sequence construct could be a form of documentation to serve as a “standard”/”common” communication mechanism to explain and illustrate different kinds of learning designs. Most

interior design musings: Family Room Project

Summer has finally arrived and with it some much needed R&R for my family.  I have loved this past school year so much.  We have been super busy and productive, but I have also been looking forward to some down time spent with my kiddos.  As I go “off the grid” for a while, I wanted to leave you with some images of a very fun project I worked on this past year.  

For this client, I was asked to create a modern eclectic space to function as the main gathering area for this young, super hip family.  A couple of things to note: The walls were already painted this rich gray tone which I thought felt very sophisticated and which the homeowners really wanted to keep.  Also, the TV was already placed over the fireplace in the space.  I know many of you are not crazy about this placement

Client Project Reveal: A Sophisticated Family Room Makeover

This post is from our Stagg Design project archives and originally posted in February 2015. We hope it gives you inspiration and some tips for tackling that next project! xx- Team Stagg

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than completely transforming a space.  Give me beige walls, furnishings opposite of my style, and I’m brimming with ideas for how to give the space new life.  Enter a recent client project: The Farmington Project.

My clients are a young, hip couple expecting their first child.  They wanted to update their family room with a neutral, soothing, sophisticated palette.  Here is what it looked like during our initial consultation.

The only piece of furniture they wanted to keep was the couch.  The chair was too big for the space, the coffee table was the wrong style for the look they wanted to accomplish, and the console and shelves just didn’t work in the
