The team travelled to High Point, NC this week to see the latest industry offerings in furnishings, lighting, and decor. While one of the best reasons to go to market is to wine and dine with design representatives from around the globe, we also managed to snap a few photos of products we look forward to use in projects to come.  Today we’re shedding light on our favorite finds at market with the top table lamps, hanging fixtures, and wall sconces:

Mantle Mantra

 

With all this talk of a “Southern Freeze”, we have our minds wandering to warmer places. What better way to catch up on good conversation and even better company than around an open fire? Take a look through some of our favorite fireplace settings to date and learn a few tricks on how to turn your hearth into something worth bragging about.

We pulled home accessories that bring out the deep violet tones of the ceramic tile surround. Offset dark hues with a tertiary color like this subtle mint green to keep the space looking fresh.

Go bold with a stark white mantle, bringing pops of color in through a surround or dark hearth. The stacked fireplaces in this historic downtown home left this room with a quirky, off-center surround. We then played off this asymmetry by centering the mirror to the actual opening and filled the empty wall space by hanging a collection of fun finds. With a room this poppy, keep greenery simple and clean like a basic fern to keep the space from getting too busy.

If your fireplace has great architectural features like this one, we suggest matching the trim color to the walls to tone down the drama of traditional elements. By using a neutral palette, we balanced the wall as a whole and allowed the natural brick of the fireplace to take center stage.

A well-curated mantle is the usual focus, but don’t forget about the wall space above the actual fireplace. Instead of flat sheetrock, we added mirrored side panels and sconces to bring the focus upward. Other ways to draw attention to this space can be through wall art, TV, or mirror.

Get The Look: Rye’s Playroom

 

With such great response to one of our recent Instagram posts that revealed parts of Rye’s playroom, we thought it would be nice to spread the love and source a few fun decor elements to help your kid’s rumble room have the same look. One thing we always stress to our clients (and personal style) is longevity. Even if you’re designing for a child, use classic design elements on more permanent pieces (such as wallpaper) that will last long past their teen years or transition to a new use. While you can easily get the look by sourcing our favorite online stores, don’t be afraid to browse your local thrift shop for rattan furniture or quirky art; these pieces are not as “dear” and can withstand the rigors of a playroom.  See below our original Instagram photo as well as a few things you can grab to duplicate Rye’s digs:

1. Display your little one’s latest creation or favorite toys with this simple bookcase from Anthropologie. The low shelf allows books and baubles to be within arm’s reach.

2. The Grove Garden wallpaper from Osborne and Little has soft, metallic hues that work for both a boy and girl. When the kids are old enough to have a space of their own, this timeless pattern makes a great guest room backdrop.

3. Add some whimsy to your playroom with these fun nature prints from Land of Nod. When they’re not watching your children learn and grow, they make for great story time inspiration.

4. Your baby bookworm will love picking books from this grinning whale bookend. With a hollowed metal construction, he’s heavy enough to hold a collection of literary classics for your little scholar.

5. Keep toys out of sight with a large canvas basket from Anthropologie. The built-in handles allow them to be easily moved for cleaning and storing.

6. Lay a rug down over your existing flooring to provide a softer surface to rumble and tumble. The raised gold bars in this Land of Nod rug have an open loop, making it ideal for small kids and pets alike.

7. Learning gets a chic re-do with this brass-colored chalkboard globe from Pottery Barn Kids. Use the round surface for mathematics or practice your geography by drawing shapes together.

Happy Holidays from Rethink

 

Holidays at Rethink are busy because we tend to put a greater focus on our clients than ourselves this time of year. But sometimes, as we share below, we get to carve out a quiet afternoon to enjoy each other’s company and even have a few slices of homemade pumpkin bread. In addition to spending time with friends and family, we like to reflect on the studio’s progress and potential for the future. Since this time last year, we’ve had the privilege to transform several residences throughout Savannah as well as jump into an exciting new cafe right in the heart of downtown. With a few events sprinkled in between like a celebration of the city and a cozy holiday party, there’s no doubt we had our work cut out for us. In the end, we grew as a studio and look forward to what the new year will bring.

Camp Circa 2013

 

When Circa Lighting asked us to turn their new warehouse space into a cozy holiday party, we were excited to take on the challenge. Using the adjacent lot as inspiration for an outdoors event that focused on getting back to nature, we staged a camp-like space where Circa‘s hard-working “scouts” could relax around an open fire and regale on this year’s finest moments.

With an old, rusted canoe, two trailers of hay, and a sea of candlelit mason jars, we gave the folks at Circa a camp experience worth writing home about.

Take a look at some of our favorite event details captured by Izzy Hudgins Photography:
