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!

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.

Winter Hibernation is Over!

As much as we love our well-designed interior environments, we are excited that it’s time to start enjoying our well-designed exterior ones again as well! As the weather warms up and we head into Spring, we may gravitate towards spending more time in the exterior spaces of the home. The Grover Residence, a project that was included in the Austin Outdoor Living Tour in Austin, TX, is a great example of a stylish but comfortable outdoor living room.


The Highland Park West Residence is a great example of using outdoor accessories 
to enhance the warmth of an entryway.
We invite you to Shop Spaces Designed and take a look at some of the outdoor furniture and outdoor decor that can make your backyard, patio, deck, or cabana a pleasantly bright, light and functional exterior room. Shipping is FREE on all orders over $99!
