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

We spent last week on site in North Redington Beach for five days of final installation of a new turnkey model unit at Redington Grand. Our interior design team has recently helped to redevelop this boutique, beachfront, luxury condominium building for our developer client unit by unit, all of which have successfully sold. Read more
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is a controversial pick. A wine red shade aptly titled “Marsala” is predicted by Pantone to play a major role in interior design, fashion, beauty, and consumer goods in 2015.
I’ll be honest. My first thought was: oh no, not again. Read more
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
Pablo and I had an incredible time this week at the HD Americas 2014 hospitality design conference and expo at the Miami Beach Convention Center. 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.

After nearly 10 months of work by our team, an intense but fulfilling week of final installation has ended at this complete renovation of our client’s lake house in Chautauqua, New York. Thanks to an incredible team effort, the results are breathtaking.
Installation week has finally come for our New York lake house project. (Originally described in this post back in January)
For our whole team this means travel to Chautauqua, NY for a whirlwind of final details, the exhaustion of long hours worked on site, and the incomparable excitement of seeing almost a year of work come to realization before our eyes. Read more
After a complete redesign by Space as Art, the original location of Fast N Fresh has reopened for business. Congratulations to the owners, Lesley and Mike Harb! This project was a top-to-bottom renovation designed for a fun guest experience, improved efficiency, and a natural, fresh energy to express the concept of this growing restaurant brand. Stop by and enjoy! Read more
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.
Good News: We’ve moved! And this great view of downtown Sarasota is from our new front door.
Bad News: Our phones are temporarily down while we change carriers and upgrade our phone system to better serve our clients. We expect our new system to be fully operational by Friday, September 6. Between today and Friday we may likely experience a temporary phone outage.
We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage contacting us by email if telephones are not yet cooperating.
More details and photos of the new space will be posted soon!
If you’ve browsed through a home design magazine lately you’ve likely noticed a resurgence of the white kitchen… Transitional and modern interiors alike all awash with natural light gleaming off clean white surfaces and spaces large and small made to feel more open and airy.
With the increasing popularity of these new white kitchens, new white kitchen appliances take the look a step further. Read more

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
