Marble Shopping Trip!

One of our favorite parts of interior design is shopping for all the right materials to make the whole design a cohesive composition. We were shopping for marble the other day and just have to share these beautiful finds with you! Grab a towel; you may drool over these luxurious pieces!

Striped Spaces

Using stripes to add visual interest to a space is a great interior design tool. For the kitchen in this Austin, TX residence our Interior Designer thought the stripes on the island would be a chance to infuse the room with a contemporary visual accent; and make the island a feature piece in the space.

Here are some other great examples of stripes as visual accents. Sometimes the stripes are loud and proud; and other times they play a quiet background role, becoming almost a neutral.

No gray area here, it’s our Black and White Issue!

Somehow black and white adds a touch of luxury to almost any interior design scheme. The use of a black and white color scheme is a simple way to infuse rooms with a contemporary feel. Interior designers and lovers-of-design home owners can combine black and white contrast with pops of bright color and traditional lighting, furniture lines, fabric, wall covering or tile patterns. And voilà! It’s a perfectly sophisticated transitional space!

This is exactly the kind of concept our interior designers followed in this Austin, Texas residence which blends traditional furniture and lighting with some contemporary furniture and patterns in the tile and textiles. The black and white color scheme helps to bridge between these traditional and contemporary elements.

These are some other great examples from other interior designers of black and white colors schemes throughout the home. Some of them are transitional and some are completely contemporary. They are great inspiration for creative ways to utilize black and white materials, colors and patterns within your spaces. Enjoy!

Dallas Market had many great finds this year. Check out these eclectic and fun items we found while touring the showrooms…
This colorfully fun wire accent chair with bold colors and fun patterns adds new life and spunk to any space.
Mixing and matching patterns and textures is an easy way to add a splash of fun to your home without spending paying for expensive furniture that will go out of style. Try accenting a neutral sofa with a variety of fun colors and textures.

Black and white is still very much in style however adding a bit of bling to the space can modernize the simple tones and adds a bit a flare!
A fun colorful lamp adds a bit of funk to a design.  These brightly colored lamps can be a great starting point for color accents in a room. Try using these colors in other accents throughout the space to create a swanky cohesive design.

Unique wall hangings are a great way to get away from the traditional wall art. Try finding fun glass or ceramic sculptures in multiple colors to hang on the wall as a fun modern piece of art!
