Trip to DCOTA, Winter Market 2015

Last week our design team took a little road trip to Dania Beach for project sourcing and Winter Market 2015 at the Design Center of the Americas. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, DCOTA is one of the world’s largest design campuses, offering hundreds of thousands of square feet of furniture, fabric, kitchen, plumbing, and lighting showrooms to the interior design trade. During this week Winter Market was held, showcasing new product introductions, speakers, and other events. We had a successful (and exhausting!) couple of days sourcing products for current clients, updating our studio library for future projects, discovering new sources and opening new accounts, and gathering creative inspiration.

The Dining Library

Do you have a formal dining room? (formal as in a separate room with at least 3 walls, not as in stylistically formal)

Do you use it often enough for its intended purpose to justify dedicating the square footage it claims in your home? Ever wish you could use the space more effectively, but don’t want to sacrifice your dining furniture and the flexibility to occasionally host larger gatherings?  Read more

Rose Gold for Home

Well-selected lighting and plumbing fixtures are the jewelry of the home. At least this is how I view them. So I think naturally the trends we see in jewelry, we’ll also see sometimes picked up in a pendant light or a faucet. (I don’t think this relationship works as well in reverse, though to their credit the marketing minds at Moen have tried the whole faucet-as-necklace look…but I digress) Read more

The highlight for us was definitely the conference lineup. Hospitality Design magazine assembled a truly fantastic group of speakers and panelists to discuss various topics centered around the hotel, resort, and restaurant design markets in the US and Latin America.

Work in Progress: New York Lake House

In order to honor the craftsman style of this existing home while interpreting our design-savvy client’s contemporary-neutral aesthetic, our challenge has been clear: to create a new style which does not yet exist.

This lake house redesign is one of the big projects we are working on currently. The existing home is primarily craftsman style in its architecture and features an abundance of orange-toned Douglas Fir interior trimwork. The solid wood itself is inherently beautiful in its own right, however the strong orange tones are in contrast to our client’s desired style- clean and contemporary with a soft, neutral “greige” palette.
