Happy New Year! | More from 2018

Well, 2018 is gone, but the pictures will live on. Am I right?! I usually do a year-in-review post about this time but I’ve kept you all pretty up-to-date on what’s been happening around our studio over the past 12 months, so another re-cap post probably isn’t necessary. Instead, I’ll show you what we were working on towards the end of the year so you can see why it’s been so quiet around here lately!

This install was a special one. Our client found us on Instagram (because that is their chosen platform for their work) and we instantly connected with them. Their style is kindof funky. They love bright colors and have a bit of a mix of styles — their house is super traditional but we introduced some modern lighting, a few farmhouse touches here and there, along with pops of colors and some beachy elements. They also have a little one who got an updated room! (We always love doing kids rooms). So here are a few shots of the finished product! They loved it so we hope you do too!

Recent Installs | Another Model Home

December is in full swing and we have been going 90 miles a minute with install after install. This holiday season is always crazy and while we love seeing designs come to completion and clients loving their new home, we are looking forward to the Christmas break just as much as the next guy!

However, there’s still one week left and it’ll be a race to the finish so we’ve got our coffee, vitamin C, and rap music to keep us going!

In the meantime, we’ll leave you with some shots from one of last week’s installs; a model home for Park Square Homes in the Sawgrass Community. This space is full of fun patterns and super cozy for all the crazy rain we’ve been having lately so check it out!

Design Trend Forecast | Color Talk

Can you believe it’s already November?! This year has flown by, as always. It’s crazy to think we’re just a few short weeks away from Thanksgiving and then Christmas will be here before you know it.

In preparation for the new year, which is really right around the corner, we’re looking at some of the design trends that are on the horizon for 2019. Color trend predictions are always a big discussion at the end of the year because there’s are different venues that affect the color trends. There are fashion color trends and interior color trends which oftentimes point in different directions but should both be considered together when evaluating color. The reason for this is that even though the runways and paint companies may say different things, the consumer also has a voice. And many times, the colors that consumers are drawn to for their clothing are the same colors that consumers are drawn to for their homes.

Right now, the big discussion is to color maximalism. The interior paint companies are predicting that 2019 will bring us walls covered in bright colors along with painted ceilings all behind layers of brightly colored furnishings and softgoods. This is the direction they’re talking…

We’re not sure about how realistic such a giant color jump would be. While this sort of “color maximalism” is fun for an area or two in your home, it’s a lot. And coming off of the clean, bright white, minimalism that’s been so popular over the past few years, we kindof think that addition of bright color into interior spaces will be a little more gradual.

To us, there are certain rooms that seem more appropriate for bright colors and patterns. The powder bath is always a yes to these items because all the rules pretty much go out the window for the powder bath. It’s a small space which would lead some to believe it should be painted bright colors and have minimal patterns to help it feel larger but in reality, the bold wallpapers and bright colors in this room make it feel special, like a little jewel box.

Loft areas, mudrooms, and family rooms are also areas where layering bright colors and patterns can be fun and makes sense. These space are more casual and meant for family gatherings so color is a lively way to go. Bedrooms on the other had, especially master bedrooms, should really be relaxing and more serene. Kids bedrooms would be the exception (even though they need their own dose of calm too).

The most important thing is that your home is an accurate reflection of yourself. Bring in bright colors how you like them — big commitment or small commitment. It’s something you’ll have to look at so make sure you are comfortable with it.

Before and After | You Won't Believe Your Eyes

Since early 2018, we’ve been working with a couple to help renovate their home. They had an idea of what they wanted done but weren’t 100% sure if it was possible. After meeting with the client and working through logistics, we worked tirelessly with different contractors to design and orchestrate a complete transformation. Full disclosure, things did not always go according to plan. As with many construction projects, there were a number of unforeseeable hiccups we faced throughout the process. However, the end result was worth it! The clients have a beautiful new family room, kitchen, dining room, and home office and are still not used to all of the wide-open space AND extra storage. Check out the before and after pictures below!

Finished Rooms | Final Install Photos

We’ve been at it again, installing more homes. It’s always so fun for us to see everything come together but we love to share it with you too! The installation process can be long and tiring but usually well worth the end result!

This home is actually a model home we did for Park Square Homes in their Verona Community. It was pretty industrial farmhouse in the common areas but the bedrooms and secondary spaces have some fun pops of color!
