The Power of Paint: Our Favorite White Paints to Transform your Space
Paint can completely transform a space. It can create a new look, a new mood, and make old look new. Despite always changing color trends, a white space remains timeless and it’s the foundation we most like to start with in our projects. There are an overwhelming amount of white paints on the market, but we like to stick with the ones that always work for us. Today we are sharing our favorites.
Introducing our Exclusive Sam’s Club x Becki Owens Furniture Collection
We are thrilled to partner with Sam’s Club for its first ever designer-created furniture collection. Based on the clean, coastal look we love, we worked with Sam’s Club to bring my aesthetic to a collection that’s made especially for the warehouse retailer’s members. We are so excited! As a mom of four, I know the importance of quality and durability. We designed Details by Becki Owens with families in mind – these pieces are classic, built from solid wood and wood veneer, and the upholstery can withstand kids and all the spills and stains that come with them. And although quality is the cornerstone of this collection, it’s the details that make it special. Take a look! I know you’ll love these pieces as much as I do.
