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!
As we transition into Fall, we recommend changing out some of your decorating accessories to ring in the new season. New window panels, pillows and throws could help shift a room from a breezy, summery feel to a cozy, elegant Fall entertaining space. You would be surprised how much these small touches could change a space’s aesthetic. Our interior designers would like to share some fun, fabulous pics of throw pillows we found on a recent shopping trip! Not only are pillows one of the most fun decorating accessories to incorporate into a room; they also pack quite a bit of impact into a small surface area!
We can appreciate a pure white, modern, minimalist space as much as the next interior designer. But our interior designers lean away from the “less is more” and much more towards the “less is a bore” interior design style. You can see a great example of this in the dazzling entryway pictured below from the recently completed Steiner Ranch Residence. We at Spaces Designed loooove color, texture and pattern!
Still not sure what we mean by “less is a bore”? Here are some more examples found on Houzz. These designs are bursting with visual interest!
We are so excited to show you completion shots of this beautiful Austin home, the Steiner Ranch Residence! Our #interiordesign team, did a comprehensive interior project including the kitchen, bathrooms, master bedroom, living, dining, study and outdoor spaces. The interior design style is an eclectic mix of contemporary and Asian antique. Many parts of the design incorporate ways to showcase the extensive and unique art collection of the owners. Earlier this summer we had a post about our photo shoot of epic proportions (Lights! Camera! Action!), and promised to show the finished photos.
Well here they are! Enjoy!

There’s nothing like a well-chosen rug to pull an #interiordesign scheme together. A great area rug can help ground a space, bring out an accent color, or add pattern and texture to a design.
Here are some examples from our portfolio:

Our interior designer, Komal, is always on the look out for great rug suppliers. She saw quite a few inspiring rugs at the New York Design Center when she visited recently!
Selecting the right rug can really make all the difference in completing a seamless design composition. So when in search of one, don’t give up. The perfect rug is out there!
What a difference a large-scale textile makes! This is the living room from one of our recently completed projects. See the before and after of the same living room with and without the rug and window treatment. Or interior designer used these two items to complete the room; adding luxury to the space and making it warm and inviting!
When you think grasscloth wallcovering you might picture a beach front property with wicker and bamboo furniture, Hawaiian print upholstery and pastel colors galore. However, a new trend for grasscloth is using it to add texture and contrast in a variety of interior design styles.
