DIGS is Scouted in Cincinnati

Did you know that DIGS has been "Scouted" here in Cincinnati? If you aren't familiar with The Scout Guide, we suggest you check them out for all things local and luxury. DIGS' President + Owner, Jaime Masters, recently sat down (virtually) with The Scout Guide's McKenna Brooks to discuss what exactly we do here at DIGS in both interior design and construction. Read the full interview HERE to learn what drives Jaime's guidance of the company.

We are so excited to be a part of The Scout Guide this year, with the publication coming hot off the press mid-November. We feel that the brand that McKenna has curated here in Cincinnati is a great representation of what the city has to offer. We are lucky to appear alongside so many other great companies, service providers, and more. Our partnership is something we look forward to seeing grow over the next year.

Make sure to follow @tsgcincinnati on Instagram to keep up with all things Cincinnati and to see some DIGS highlights on their grid and stories. While you're at it, make sure you are following us, too @digshome. We can't wait to inspire you and help complete your next home project.

Female Pioneers of Architecture

The world of architecture has been around for centuries, but women have only recently become pioneers of the field over the past 100 years. Most have worked alongside names we recognize, while each female architect is as experienced and innovative as those names they appear with.

Veranda magazine recently featured six true 20th-century female pioneers of the architecture field HERE. Lauren Wicks writes, "Elizabeth Graziolo, founder and principal of Yellow House Architects, says 'there are not any true women in classical architecture that I can look back on... I know we exist; we just need to bring those women into the light for people to know about them.'"

Women have achieved many things throughout history, and breaking into the world of architecture is just one hurdle that has been jumped. DIGS is proud to employ strong women.

Know their names. Appreciate the work they have put into the field and the influences that can be seen because of them.

A Modern Urban Oasis in Hyde Park

This gorgeous Hyde Park urban oasis sits nestled in a world of its own. Surrounded by trees, this specially curated home is the perfect getaway, every day.

DIGS did a complete renovation of this home, from construction of a brand new kitchen (with a bonus dirty kitchen) to all new bathrooms and living spaces designed. Highlighted here is the great room, which features a gorgeously designed fireplace that separates the great room from the dining room and kitchen. The two-story wall of windows allows natural light to fill the space from the second floor main entry down to this room of relaxation. An urban oasis in Hyde Park with the entry way overlooking the great room and a wall of windows.

Our client recently moved, allowing a new owner to come in and enjoy this beautiful retreat. Read more about the home HERE. If you're considering a home design, renovation, or construction project, don't hesitate to contact our team @ 513 533 3447 to discuss. Check out our portfolio of projects HERE.

A High End Closet for a High-in-the-Sky Condo

We are currently finishing up a high end closet project at a client's home in East Walnut Hills. The end product is a beautifully crafted custom closet and bookshelf. We are also providing new wall coverings and paint throughout.

Interior Designer John Harrison helped our clients select high end custom finishes, including closet hardware from Cincinnati's own Bona Decorative Hardware, ceiling lights from Visual Comfort, and specialty lighting from Juniper. We had the closet cabinets and bookshelf custom made based on our client's needs.

This week we are hanging Philip Gorrivan wallpaper in the foyer. We were able to snap some finished shots of the closet and bookshelf to share with you.

A Hyde Park Dream Galley Kitchen

A recently completed kitchen and dining room design project by DIGS' Interior Design Christine Kommer sits pretty and bright in Hyde Park. No detail was overlooked, from every finish to the artwork and rug selection. This on-the-go family went from a closed off, low-functioning kitchen to a bright and airy galley kitchen that has them in love with cooking again.

Finishes include tile from Fireclay, area rug from Fazel Rug Gallery, chandelier from Currey & Co., lights over sink from Visual Comfort, a custom built range hood from Cincinnati's own Radius Concepts, and a Kohler sink.

The Ultimate Guide to Paint Finishes

Let Elle Decor put your mind at ease when it comes to all things interior paint HERE. Decisions on color, paint base, and finish can have a major impact on your interior design. These things set the mood for your room.

Take into consideration how you want your walls to function for the room you're designing. Will they need to be washed often? How much natural light will you get? What will the rest of your room decor and finishes be like?

Taking the time to do your research on these things ahead of your project (whether you're doing the painting or hiring professionals) will result in fewer mistakes, potential re-dos, and will have you relaxing in your freshly painted digs before you know it.

A West Village Remodel: Functional and Stylish

A Manhattan couple opted to settle down in the West Village where they had rented for years. Settling on a charming pre-war, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom co-op, they took on a major redesign.

Architectural Digest has featured their project, completed by interior designer Alexander Reid, who created just over 1,000 square feet of clean, contemporary spaces for the couple. “We wanted something that felt elevated but not overly designed. Alex’s style is a nice mix of elegant, warm, and modern, which fit our desire for a more masculine aesthetic.”

Reid's design aesthetic in this urban apartment feels familiar to design John Harrison of DIGS has created for clients in the past. Our team of designers can create fabulous spaces for you, no matter the size of the project.

The Perfect Chef’s Kitchen by Way of Thoughtful Design

The elegant and carefully planned design of this Kansas City kitchen shows in every detail.

As featured on House BeautifulLaura McCroskey's own kitchen remodel came years after living in her home. Her design "blended her elegant style with savvy incorporation of tools, appliances, and designated spaces to make cooking and hosting a breeze."

We love this kitchen for its thoughtful layout and consideration for every detail. We put the same effort into our own interior design projects and see these ideas come to life through our construction team.

Plan your next kitchen design project with DIGS, and watch it come to fruition, making your home functional and elegant.
