Project Focus: The Dixon House

Posted on August 01, 2018 | 1 comment

Quietly nestled in downtown Easton is an establishment with a reputation for outstanding elderly care. Ascending the steps of the spacious front porch and entering through the front door, you’ll be greeted with welcoming smiles on the faces of everyone you encounter at The Dixon House, both residents and staff alike.

There is a sense of pride and optimism at The Dixon House—attributes which have long endured since the doors first opened in 1910. “It’s always been group housing, and it’s continuing to serve that purpose,” says Linda Elben, executive director of The Dixon House. “We feel it is our duty to carry on the tradition of hospitality within this building. That includes providing a family-like atmosphere, and comfortable facilities and surroundings.”

To that end, as of late last year, the establishment underwent an entire first-floor interior design renovation. Don Wooters of Dwelling & Design was hired to help guide the project in the right direction. ‘Rejuvenation’ might be a better description, with all-new wallpapering, carpeting, light fixtures and furniture adorning the facility.

“We designed and decorated in a colorful, transitional style, that was both mindful of the residents and in keeping with the nature of the building. We were able to accomplish a look that is manor-like rather than commercial or institutional, ” commented Don Wooters, interior designer and co-owner of Dwelling & Design.

Dining Room

 

Moving forward, “significant effort was made in updating it to compete and keep up with newer facilities on the Shore,” adds Wooters. Areas of the facility receiving the new interior design treatment include: lobby/seating area, dining room, "Day" room, central hallways, business offices, wellness center and salon.

"Dwelling & Design did a wonderful job maintaining the old Victorian feel of the house with the designs and colors that were chosen," comments Linda Elben. “We feel that this is really the closest to home that someone can be in the later stages of life.”

"There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction working on a project like this," says Wooters. "We are grateful to have worked with this exemplary local establishment and hope that its residents and employees enjoy the benefits of their surroundings for many years to come."

Cheers,

Dwelling & Design

8 Attractive Indoor/Outdoor Fabrics for the Active Household

Posted on June 26, 2018 | 0 comments

We want it all. The style and luxury of the finest woven fabrics. But that's not nearly enough. We want spill-resistance, like in those “glass of red wine” commercials. And we need to be able to leave our furniture outside in the elements for a week and have it still look as good as when it first left the factory.  

Ok, what else? How about able to endure 50,000 double-rubs with 1,500 hours of lightfastness. Is that asking too much?

Good news—these demanding requirements are practically becoming the norm nowadays. Technology is rapidly advancing in the textiles industry too. Companies realize the investment made in furniture by consumers with children and pets (adults can be hard on furniture too, admit it!) and that they need it to hold up under all sorts of precarious situations. In other words, hope for the best but definitely be prepared for the worst!

So yes, we can have our cupcake and eat it too, and easily clean the icing off the cushions. No biggie.

Here’s a collection of 8 different indoor/outdoor options that we think are pretty attractive—not only for their patterns—but for the priceless peace of mind they offer in addition.

(Disclaimer: All of the following fabric samples are rated for indoor/outdoor use. However, please consult individual fabric specifications for durability ratings and recommended usage. All photos courtesy of respective designers.)

Btw, this is an extremely small sample size! It was incredibly difficult to choose from everything that is out there, but so much fun too. For more, check out our Indoor/Outdoor Fabrics Pinterest page, and of course stop by the store and design center. We can help navigate, if you need it :)

Cheers,

Top 5 Favorite Pieces by Stray Dog Designs

Posted on June 20, 2018 | 0 comments

Stray Dog Designs are immediately recognizable for their fun, eclectic creations in bold, juicy colors. If you've been to our store, seen them in magazines, or own a few pieces already, you know exactly what we're talking about! Here are our 5 favorite pieces by Stray Dog Designs:

Paulina Otomi Pendant

Paulina Otomi Pendant

We love everything about this. The handwoven shade. The thought put into each detail . And the colors, of course. It’s pure handmade beauty.

Billy Goat Side Table

Billy Goat Side Table

What's not to love about this table? The definition of a conversation piece. Gold leaf top to boot!

Joe Weeks Table

Joe Weeks Table

It’s named after our own Fiona's husband Joe! He’s cool like that. And so are Billy and Jane and the crew.

Aly Floor Lamp

Aly Floor Lamp

What do you see everywhere on the Eastern Shore, aside from water? Fields. With corn stalks (or soybeans). It’s part of who we are.

Crab by Stray Dog Designs

Crabs

Got crabs? Perhaps the single most iconic element on the Shore. And a Dwelling & Design retail exclusive (not available online)!

For more information about this amazing company, read our Brand Focus: Stray Dog Designs, including interview with co-founder and lead designer Jane Gray.

Brand Focus: Stray Dog Designs

Posted on June 18, 2018 | 3 comments

Glance around the shop and one of the first things you’ll instantly recognize are the colorful creations of Stray Dog Designs. Papier-mâché animal sculptures and nature-inspired home decor dot the periphery with their exuberant presence. You may even spot a large blue crab (although it may not necessarily be blue—perhaps lime green or hot pink!) crawling across a chair or sofa, made exclusively by them for our store here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Beginning as “a collision of free spirits”—including man, woman and dog—Stray Dog Designs have dedicated their time and space in the universe to creating and bringing joy to those around them. Back in the 1990’s, Bill & Jane fell fast in love, eagerly got hitched, and soon met someone who would forever change their lives—La Princessa. This homeless, loveable canine became their adopted first child and also the inspiration for the company to-be.

Family Photo | Stray Dog Designs

Jane, Billy, and the Pritchard family.

While this may be a hasty and inadequate summation of their backstory, they are modest by nature and quick to heap praise upon those around them. These include family and employees in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as well as their "family" of artisans residing in Mexico whom bring a deep sense of culture and craftsmanship to the endeavor. Since day one, they have always expressed their gratitude in having us as a retail partner (we're just as grateful!) and personally handle every inquiry we've ever had.

Stray Dog Postcard

Heck, they even sell a piece of furniture named after Fiona's husband--"The Joe Weeks Table". True story!

We were excited to have the opportunity of asking co-founder and lead designer Jane Gray a few questions about their company, philosophy and general outlook in the design industry. We hope you enjoy this insightful interview, including a few sketches of new product designs by Jane.

Hi Jane! So what are some of your main sources for inspiration?

Inspiration can come from anything, anywhere at anytime. I could be struck by the graphic on a box of cereal or really any type of random nonsense..... but my main source of inspiration is, and has always been, nature. I love a walk in the woods. I love a weed, a weirdly shaped seed pod, a delicate and perfect spring bloom like a snow drop or hyacinth. Trees almost kill me with their beauty (not to mention their pollen ). Creeping caterpillars, twittering birds and hens with their bob-headed trot, cabbages and corn stalks appearing in the garden, etc, etc....I am captivated and inspired by almost everything in the day to day world immediately outside my door.  And travel is also hugely inspirational. Museums, magazines and social media, as well. I'm not a Pinterest stalker or much of a Facebook person but I regularly look at instagram. When my kids' were small, children's books influenced a lot of my designs. 

(Follow Stray Dog Designs on Instagram: @straydogdesigns)

How do you choose your vibrant and iconic, colorful shades?

I just like a bright, happy punch of color. There is so much gray and beige and tasteful tan out there in the interiors world I think a good pop of cheer here and there is necessary (or, at least, it is for me;)

In an industry that can take itself so seriously, how do you maintain your sense of humor?

Take myself seriously? How could I? Look at my work. I'm never sure why anyone in our industry takes themselves too seriously, for that matter.....we are all in the DESIGN business for heaven's sake. We are not going to cure cancer or end world hunger or provide relief to the suffering in war torn countries with our clever seating arrangements, adorable throw pillows and fabulous light fixtures. And besides... a sense of humor is key. What would we do in this world if we couldn't laugh at ourselves every now and again?

Design sketch, Metal wire sculpture Acorn pendant by Jane Gray

Can you briefly tell us about the skilled artisans who hand craft your items?

Yes, that I can. We work with a lovely group of people in San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico, (a delightfully beautiful colonial town that you should make a point of visiting if you have never been.) The majority of our workshop crew have been with us for twenty years or more. They are hardworking, fun loving, creative problem solvers and naturally artistic. We also use independent artisans around town for some of our work, which allows mothers the flexibility of working out of their own houses at their own pace without sacrificing time with their families.

Can you tell us about any new items we might see in 2018 or down the road?

Yes! We have loads of introductions to roll out this year. We previewed a couple of faves on Insta and got lots of great feedback. We have several new lamp bases in tole, iron and papier mache, we are going to have some new hand painted paper shades and are working hard on rolling out screen printed paper shades, as well. There are several new hanging lights that we are excited about and at least, 5 or 6 new wall sconces. Our lighting category has been far and away our best selling division for the last few years so we really focused there. 

Design sketch, Cone Flower ceiling light by Jane Gray

What do you hope to instill in your children (or anyone else, for that matter!), as a very family-based and conscientious companies?

Work hard...but not so hard that you neglect your family and friends. treat your co-workers, employees and clients with respect and kindness. Have fun...if you don't enjoy your work that is bound to negatively affect other areas of your life. Don't be greedy...the majority of our society's most pressing and acute ills are greed driven, in my opinion. Clearly, I don't have any earth shattering wisdom to impart....it all circles back to what we learned in pre-school. Follow the golden rule, share well with others, and let your light shine!

A couple other cool things to note about Stray Dog Designs: 

    • They use a palette of nine colors--all eco-friendly, low VOC paints by Benjamin Moore.
    • Use recycled and recyclable materials whenever possible.
    • They donate a portion of every sale to organizations that improve lives--both human and animal--through their Stray Giving Program.
    • Check out their other Core Company Principles.

Now can you see why we love this company so much?  Not only are they charming and fun, they're positively setting a conscientious example for operating a business in the 21st century.  

Cheers,

D&D

Interview with PetConnect Member Wendy Grubbs

Posted on June 04, 2018 | 0 comments

Wendy PetConnect

Ahead of our Rescue Pet Event on June 15 & 16, we spoke with PetConnect board member and local “foster parent”, Wendy Grubbs. She currently is parenting four lovable senior dogs in her home near Oxford, MD. She has been with PetConnect since 2016, and has been affectionately caring for animals since she was in kindergarten!

We asked Wendy a few questions to learn more about the organization, the national stray-animal and euthanization epidemic, the solutions, and what they’re focusing on currently in their day-to-day efforts.

What animals do you rescue and help people adopt?

Both animals we currently serve are dogs and cats. For this event, we’re focusing on adoptions for senior canines. 

When did you begin and how many lives have been saved along the way?

Since 2012, PetConnet Rescue (PCR) has been fortunate enough to save between 700-800 dogs and cats annually.  In 2017, we processed approximately 694 adoptions.

How and where do you find the animals you rescue?

Predominately in “kill shelters” located in the South. They have the highest rate of euthanization. It’s over 4,000 animals per day. It really breaks my heart.

Our main goal and priority at the moment is to “swoop-in” at hospice locations and rescue animals where their owners are deceased or no longer able to give care. We want to step-in and completely avoid these animals going to shelters.

What are some of the benefits of adopting an animal who is older?

Well, we personally try to encourage the adoption of seniors over puppies.

Seniors are easier, calmer and the older the person, the better it is for them to own a senior, typically. Also, for people who have kids, in this hectic world, seniors are easier to care for. 

It’s a completely different commitment level, and experience. You’re caregiving. You can spoil them rotten. You’re having fun with them.

What do you say to people afraid to commit to an older pet?

People say “they’re not going to last long” and that’s probably true, but…you’re giving them a happy end of their life. It’s a wonderful “feel-good opportunity” to make sure that these dogs get what they deserve near the end of their lives…which is not dying in a shelter. It’s living with a family, in a loving environment. 

Is it hard every time? Yes. Do you cry every time? Yes. But is it worth it? Absolutely.

When the first senior I adopted had to be put down, it was hard. But later that same day I found myself thinking, “if I get a call to adopt another, I’m going to stop whatever I’m doing and drive to rescue that animal!”…because it is just so worth it. 

Dubya | PetConnect Rescue

Dubya | Former Rescue | PetConnect

What are some of the ways people can support your organization, even if they already have pets?

Order food at Chewy.com (and they’ll donate $20 to PCR). Also, shop Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) and you can make purchases as you normally do, but a percentage of each purchase goes to the organization of your choice (please choose us!).

Do you offer any volunteer opportunities for those who are passionate about helping animals?

The absolute best way to help is by becoming a “foster”. You can fill out a foster form on our website (www.petconnectrescue.com). You’ll take one of the animals until a new home is found. We’re completely foster-based, so it’s great when one more person steps-up. Let us know and we’ll send a dog your way.

Hats off to the shelters because without them we’d be nowhere, but the foster-based system has tremendous benefits. It’s usually a brief commitment and you can volunteer one time and be done or continue as you like, it’s totally up to you. But this helps out so much you have no idea.

If potential adopters have specific questions about the adoption process, allowances, etc. where can they find more information?

They can visit www.petconnectrescue.org, where we have tons of information available, including frequenctly asked questions. And feel free to subscribe to our monthly newsletter which contains great rescue stories as well as pictures and names of animals currently looking for homes!

What also sets us apart is the specific information we can provide about each animal. Because our “fosters” spend time with every animal, they can give honest, first-person analysis about animal personality, behavior, etc. This allows us to find close to a perfect fit for potential adopters, because we can match an animal with that person’s lifestyle or preferences. 

For the upcoming event with Dwelling & Design, is there a specific focus? Adoption opportunities?

Yes, for this event we are focusing on the adoption of seniors! Often, these animals are the hardest to find suitors for, but they have so much more life to live!

We’ll bring one or two adoptables on Friday; just so people are around and we can help spread the word. On Saturday I’ll bring my dog, Dubya, and he’ll be a great example to show everyone of the turnaround these animals can experience.

I’m delighted you’re doing this, I really am, and we look forward to seeing everyone this month!
