1. Mix the Old and New: As the world continues to become more focused on going green, repurposing, and reinventing, we see the same trend influencing the interior design world. People are fusing contemporary design, with unique antique and vintage pieces to create a distinctive, singular look.
An area rug grounds a room and can serve as the foundation for the pattern and color palette in a room. It can also be the first selection made in a space. The rug can either be loud in pattern and color or subtle in texture and tone. Regardless of the style, color, or pattern, the placement of furniture on top of the rug and the scale of the rug are key to a successful design.
Believe it or not, when we propose using wallpaper in a client’s home, many times we get the question, “isn’t that a thing of the past?” Or, “I don’t want my house to look like my grandmother’s powder room.” And even, “while I loved the Brady Bunch, I do not care to live in a house of wall to wall grasscloth.” BUT, in the past couple of years, wallpaper has made a HUGE comeback in a lovely and fashionable way.
On all design projects, one of the most important tasks is accessorizing a space to give it a completed and polished look. All too often, we have clients spend tons of money on the staples (think furniture, window treatments, and rugs) and skimp at the end to save some money.
We found out many years ago that we could improve on our design projects by putting together design teams for every job. We find that makes the whole design process so much more successful. Designers are best at designing and we understand that. So, design teams make the process much better for our clients.
Just like those had to have-wow factor pair of shoes or gorgeous pair of earrings that made your entire outfit, having great wallpaper can bring the wow factor into your home. Wallpaper has come a long way since the 1960’s and is now a great way to obtain that prodigious design twist we all crave.
