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

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.

A Spectacular Bookmatch

It was a successful afternoon hunting through the local granite yards for slabs to use on a current design project. We have been searching for just the right stone for weeks, and here it is! It’s Spectacular… no really, that’s what they’ve named it. Can’t argue with that though- these dramatic, bookmatched slabs will look spectacular installed on our project- I can’t wait! Read more
