Pillows Galore!

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!

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!

Choosing some #stylish, but comfortable #outdoorfurniture is a great start for your #outdoorroom. A rug with a sleek #contemporarypattern is the perfect contrast with the more earthy aged-finish #planters. Finish things off with some interesting #sculpture and elegant  #sconce, #pendant, or post #lighting.
