Symmetry in your Interior

When consulting with a new client I have have found that before we can collaborate on the design of a new space it is very important to find out what type of design my client  will feel most comfortable embracing in their space.  Symmetry in the space is an important aspect of the design plan.  Currently in design the trendy thing is to be less symmetrical or asymmetrical.  By adding bright colors to a space and embracing the idea of an asymmetrical design, you can create a look which redefines the color block look.

Many individuals already use this concept of asymmetrical designs in nail designs and fashion, but this look is just beginning to emerge in interiors .   To embrace this look you need to first choose one color which will become the dominate color in the design.  From there you will carefully choose other colors which work with this color as well as embrace the overall feel that you are aiming to achieve. It is adamant that your space brings you comfort whether it is energy or a sense of peace so your accent colors are very important to your final design. By choosing this design style, you are able to keep crisp, clean lines giving you a space with an overall style that appears to be more contemporary.  This will allow your accessories, which are the icing to the cake, to stand out and show off their unique qualities to both you and your guests.

Asymmetrical Colors in Interiors

Please keep in mind when designing, the look is not only about color.  Symmetry is also important to keep in mind as a guideline to placing objects in the room.  Well-spaced planned interiors  will allow your client to use existing furniture and mix it with new pieces.  Although it would be ideal to only use furniture that fits perfectly in your space, the reality is that we generally have to work with what we have.  There are many times that someone will have three chairs and one sofa, or a scenario where you have 2 different chairs in the room.  This is a situation in which asymmetrical decisions must be made.  Take into consideration that when the chairs are separate from each other it is ok for them to be in two different patterns.   Having odd pairs in the room will allow for more seating as long as your space is large enough and doesn’t become to crowded. Remember the most important thing in designing a space is that the client is comfortable with the finished room and feels joy when walking into it!living-room-57710-1900

The New “It” Thing… Glitter!

Blogs from our past!

Fabrics and Frames Furniture

Glitter, Glitter, Glitter!  When you think of glitter you probably don’t think of high- end design.  Throughout the past year though, glitter has become a huge influence in the design world.  From Art, Fashion, and Interior Design, glitter has emerged as one of the next big trends.

The Art World

This past December, Dallas Contemporary Museum, showcased a New York artist by the name of Rob Pruitt with an exhibition that featured a collection of his work that consisted of glittered pandas.  This collection really opened my eyes to the boundaries that glitter can reach  by seeing large scaled canvas prints which showed glitter being successfully used in high-end art.

Although Rob Pruitt had an interesting answer to the question of “What art may be…”, he expanded the boundaries that many young new artists and designers may be afraid to even journey past.  As is usually the case  for professional designers, new trends in design often follow…

When there are multiple bright colors in your interior, decorating and painting pumpkins is the perfect way to add pattern to your room.  Since these items will be temporary, you can use any inexpensive craft source to add texture to the space.

If you are not comfortable with lots of color in your interior, then a sophisticated Halloween may be more your style.  Trends of white and black decor are very popular during this season.  Gathering items like white pumpkins, black wreaths, and silver candelabras with spiderwebs will show your friends how to celebrate with style.  Punching small items with whimsical typography on pillows and napkins can make a statement in this modern chic look.
