Less Is A Bore

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!

Finished Photos: Steiner Ranch Residence

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!

Before and After

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!facebook_6.5.2013

What do you think of our favorite little feature wall?

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!
