purpose. beauty. inspiration.

Matte gold fixtures. Black accents. Open shelves. Giant floral prints. Faux fur. Marble everything.

2016 was a year defined by bold and exciting trends. In spite of the year’s many unexpected twists and turns, the interior design world thrived, and we were thrilled to be along for the ride! As we begin to dive into a new year full of design projects and adventures, we’re taking a few moments to reflect on this past year, and all of the growth and beauty it held. Take a look!

Luxurious West Sac Loft Project

mojibiWe kicked off 2016 by adding the finishing touches to a glamorous kitchen and living room renovation that started in the fall of 2015. The client shared our obsession for lush textiles and mixed metallics, and gave us permission to go crazy on the details. By the end, we were all swooning over every last corner vignette. One of our favorite features from the project is pictured here: a full-height marble and mirror backsplash from TileBar. Can we say heart eyes emoji? Check out the rest of the project in our portfolio!

Adventures in Europe

italyA word of advice – if someone offers you the opportunity to travel through Europe for four weeks, don’t say no. This past summer, part of our team had the chance to spend a full month getting to know Dublin, Ireland, and several towns throughout Austria and Italy. We soaked up inspiration from the gorgeous architecture and picturesque countrysides, and came back ready to create. It was an unforgettable trip, and we’ll be sure to share more about it in the coming months! (P.S. More to come this summer – Greece 2017!)

New Addition to the Design Team

new-hireThe design industry is booming, and there’s just too much work for one person to take on alone. So “I” became “we” in July of 2016. We’re having a blast collaborating on beautiful projects, improving our business strategy, and developing our social media and marketing. Growth is such an exciting thing for a small business, and we can’t wait to see what this new year will bring!

Las Vegas Market

vegasLast year’s Las Vegas Market was one for the books! Even though we were only able to stay for a couple days (summer is such a busy time for designers!), we were able to find several new vendors to use, while falling back in love with some old favorites, like Leftbank Art – pictured here. You can read more about our favorite finds in our LVMkt post from August 2016. This year we’re thinking it just might be time to pay a visit to High Point, North Carolina…

Glamorous Glass Ensuite Project

powellWe wrapped up 2016 by finishing up one of our favorite remodels to date. The client asked us to create a master suite worthy of Architectural Digest – a challenge we didn’t take lightly. We covered the shower walls and tub surround with pale blue glass tiles, under-mounted a soaker tub to a solid marble tub deck, and topped it all off with a stunning chandelier. Our official photoshoot for the project is scheduled for January 17th, so be sure to check the portfolio at the end of the month. We’re stoked to reveal the finished product!

Wishing you all a happy and productive New Year!
