2019 is off to a busy start!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a celebratory start to 2019. We spent a lot of quality family time around the fire with all three of my boys home. My wife and I found time to “just be” as they say, and enjoy the...

What a weekend! Thank you!

What a fantastic weekend we had at Wine & Design! It’s taken me until today to sit down and reflect on how much fun and how successful the event was, once again! Ok ok, it could have been the “wine” part of “Wine & Design” too,...

Got your lists ready?

Hey everyone! November 30th is just around the corner and we are hard at work preparing our Second Annual Wine & Design Event. This year, we are pleased to welcome back some of our retail vendors from last year and we’ve also added to the list. Lee has...

Everything old is new again!

I’ve often said that every home should have a mix of old and new. By paying homage to the past, we can live better in the present. Not everyone lives in – or wants to live in – a historic home like I do. But we all have heirlooms, valuable whether in price...

Multitasking is in my DNA

I’ve never been a person who can do just one thing. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken a personality test, but whatever the result is that shows me retaining lots of information and being able to use that information quickly – that’s...

Taking care of the little things

Often, I get calls from my clients about little things happening around their house that they aren’t sure how to handle. Being in the building/design industry for so long allows me to know a lot of great tradespeople who can get the job done for you and keep...

Spring Fabrics

Spring is time to start anew. Whether with new seedlings in your garden, new flowers on your front porch, or new color on your couch, Spring is when people seem the most motivated to make a change.  At the Lee W. Robinson Company, we’ve been having fun with...

Giving back feels great – and costs less!

Of course around this time we are all looking for the most value for our money, and the best deals. At the Lee W. Robinson Company, we have many local organizations that are near and dear to our hearts. This year, we are pleased to be able to accomplish our goal of...

Giving the perfect gift

Whether shopping for a hostess gift for your neighbor or a holiday present for your mom, it’s important to make your recipient feel not just acknowledged – but special. There’s a skill to moving through your list, and it is to maximize the perceived...

Why DIY?

As The Lee W. Robinson Company launches our brand-new DIY concept, Lee shares with you his vision, and reason for creating the idea:  “I recognized a change in the design industry and began to see two distinct groups. The first group is made up of those who require...

Creating the Perfect Thanksgiving Space

With Thanksgiving, as with all the holidays, I believe in not overdoing it. Keep it simple and elegant. Your table, and your whole home, should feel inviting and full of grace. Use greens from your yard: fresh magnolia on your mantel, adorned with pinecones, is really...

Winterizing Your Home Decor

Each year it seems the summer comes to a sudden halt, and we run straight into Halloween. Once we get past the orange and black, it’s time to pause and begin to think about preparing our homes for the holidays. As you get ready to welcome your family in, there are...

Halloween less the kitsch

Halloween, in all its Autumn splendor, can easily turn into the most “kitschy” holiday of all. I see this holiday as a kickoff to the main event: Thanksgiving and the winter holidays. Though focused around the family and trick-or-treaters, it is possible to create a...
