Physical walls used to determine the furniture layout of a room, but architectural designs have since evolved to include more open spaces. I love an open space plan because it gives you the opportunity to create various layouts using sectionals, sofas and lounge chairs! The position of each piece determines how the room flows and what the vibe of the room will be. So whether you want one large open space or one with a smaller space within, you have the flexibility to make it your own!
Furniture is a key element to any room, but sometimes you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. So when you can’t find the perfect piece, what do you do? Go custom! Our go-to is . They’re experts in crafting quality pieces and we’ve been working with them for years. We first started working with them as Custom Designs under John Greenwood and developed a trusting relationship to create gorgeous pieces for our clients.
Bringing the interior of your home to life starts with the furniture selections. Each selection helps define the overall room layout and how the space will be used. Our main goal is to create special areas for conversations and for spending time with family and friends.
For today’s project reveal, we are taking a trip back to 2014. I know that a design from 4 years ago may seem a bit dated, but I can assure you, this home is anything but stuck in the past. The romantic design with modern details is the perfect representation of this sophisticated couple. A large piece of art by Angela Fraleigh in the formal living room inspired the neutral colors and soft purple hues we used throughout their home.
Whether you’re moving into a new home or just updating your current, creating a relaxing space in a large room is a fun challenge. A large room means you have a lot of space to work with, which is always exciting! However, one of the biggest challenges of a large room is selecting the perfect sectional that fits like a glove within the space. Sectionals need to be comfy, but not too bulky. They should be a sleek, luxurious and a livable gathering spot for your family.
Mirrors are so much more than a reflective surface in which you check your appearance. While they are great for a quick glance at your lipstick on your way out the door or the application of a full face of makeup, they can also become a focal point of your room. They add depth and dimension and bounce around a room’s light like nobodies business. Added bonus: mirrors with fab frames add texture, detail, and color to a space too!
Interior Design is always evolving. The industry itself expands and experiments, creating strong looks and philosophies like mid-century modern or shabby chic. And just as traditional begins to mesh with contemporary and formal with casual chic, your own style matures over your lifetime. So how do you keep up? Well, that’s where we come in! It’s our job (and specialty!) to help steer you in the right direction and find a style that is unique, timeless and classically you.
It’s quite extraordinary what happens when you go to the spa. The moment you walk in, the world drifts away and you forget about what has (or will) happen that day. You just focus on relaxing and recharging. Sadly, once you leave, everything seems to have become even more chaotic while you were at the spa and that relaxed feeling begins to melt away.
December has arrived but there is still a ton to accomplish before the holidays are upon us! It’s not just the festivities that are keeping us extra busy this month. We’re wrapping up some fabulous projects for our clients and, of course, working away on the Boulevard Show House. I can’t believe how much we’ve been able to accomplish over the past three months. It seems like just yesterday we were doing our walkthrough of the house with Newberry Architecture to get our initial concept together.
When it comes to putting the perfect outfit together, it usually goes something like this: You choose the clothes, add some shoes, select a gorgeous bag and then finish it off with beautiful accessories. Whether it’s a classic single strand of pearls, an armful of mixed metal bangles or an eye-catching pair of statement earrings, jewelry is the finishing touch that every outfit needs.
