Spotted Shopping

As a designer, I love being able to get a first look at the new pieces from my favorite vendors. Once I spot something at market, it could be 6 months to a year before the piece is available and that is a long time to wait! Spotting fabulous pieces for projects is the best way to be inspired and when your client is shopping with you, it makes it so much easier to pull the trigger. I recently spent the day shopping with a client for their new home and we found quite a few pieces that will help us pull it all together!  Here are a few of our favorites from the trip!

Boho Chic Nursery {Style Me Pretty Living}

Love seeing our latest nursery project featured on Style Me Pretty Living recently!

55493e85dd01a$!400x

 

My clients had a clear vision for their baby’s nursery from the moment we sat down at our first design meeting. We started with the color palette, balancing the expansion of coral and turquoise from the rest of the house into the nursery to create a cohesive flow, while also giving the room a personality of its own. We settled on a boho chic feel which was achieved through classic textures paired with birds and butterflies, a fun way to take the baby from her first steps and into toddlerhood. The classic grey and white palette of the furniture will allow the pieces to grow with the room and the blush pink walls were just enough to make it girly without taking over. Adding a touch of whimsy with a cozy nook at the window was a perfect way to bring in some adventurous colors while topping off the space.

Pretty Paper {Petal Pusher}

We have used Hygge & West’s Petal Pusher wallpaper in gold on a few projects and are smitten. The soft floral pattern fills the space with a super chic feel and the metallic gold takes it to the next level. Our client’s were going for girly chic spaces, so this modern take on a floral was the perfect fit to pull the rooms together. Being bold with wallpaper can be easily achieved without going overboard. Just keep the pattern simple, tonal and go for it!

 

This small powder bathroom was dark and since it is built in under the stair case, it had a cavelike feeling that was not chic at all. So we covered all of the walls with the gold Petal Pusher paper to brighting it up. I love the bold pattern in this small space, it really did create the wow factor that our client was after while bringing the chic look that she wanted too.  The glitzy light fixtures bounced the perfect amount of light off of the metallic paper as well.

The Bella Lash Studio here in Uptown Dallas is located in a old house that was loaded with charm. But, it was lacking in the girly chic department so we brought in the Gold Petal Pushers paper to make the best of the unique ceiling and walls in the space. We used the pattern as an accent wall in the main lobby, it was the perfect way to greet clients as they entered the space. The soft floral pattern paired well with the other graphic patterns and soft pink & turquoise accents.

We carried the floral pattern into the treatment rooms and I love how taking it all the way across the angled ceiling opened up the dark space. Again, the glitzy lighting draws attention to the metallic finish on the wallpaper and opens up the space to create a soothing treatment room for their clients as well as a fabulous place to work all day!

Interior Illustrations

I have been a huge fan of designer and artist Mari Robeson for quite a while now. We carry a few of her fabulous pillows and illustrations at Shop Ten 25 and even have her pieces in our own home. I love working with Mari and her collections never disappoint.  I recently asked her to help me with a  few project illustrations, and she knocked it out of the park!!! If you are looking for illustration, custom fabrics or unique art pieces pop on over to The Shop to see all of her gorgeous pieces!

Wide Open Spaces

The latest issue of OUTDOOR ROOMS is on newsstands now and we are thrilled to have one of our projects featured.  Designing outdoor spaces to be cohesive with the interiors is always a fun challenge and this space was no different. Creating multiple seating areas that felt cozy was the number one goal in the space. We used outdoor drapes to soften the structural columns, grass green outdoor shag rugs and bold floral pillows to bring a pop of color to the space. My favorite addition, the custom outdoor mobile that the client brought with them. It brought in so much color and the movement the mobile provides is soothing.  A big Thank You to Melanie Johnson for the gorgeous images!!!

We’re Trucking Around Town

We love our vendors and are proud to support them when they ask for our help. One of our local Dallas area upholstery workrooms, JC”s Upholstery  came to us recently and had a fun request for us. They wanted to show off the pieces they created for us in their new marketing material and asked for images of the work. We were more than happy to do so, but had no idea that we would see our projects on the side of their delivery trucks in such a grand scale! It was a little strange at first, but I love seeing a few of our favorite installations trucking around Dallas!!! Keep an eye out for JC’s trucks around town!
