Chic Shelves in Three Simple Steps

You’ve finally found the bookshelf of your dreams and all seems right in the world – until you realize said bookshelf is empty. Standing tall in your library or living room with nothing to showcase but the price tag and perhaps a shipping kernel or two. And, your bookshelf is only a million accessory combinations away from being perfect. Where do you start? Let these three simple tips get you going, and if all else fails, we’ve got your back. Step #1: Symmetry Start by using larger accessories to anchor the shelf and add a sense of rhythm, seen above with a plaster urn and matching planters. Keeping a symmetrical pattern at eye level will make more “organic” styling look purposeful instead of chaotic. Step #2: Cohesive Variety Collect art and objects that differ in shape but share the same tonal values or subject matter. We curated a collage behind…

Quiz: What Type of Dweller Are You?

Perhaps our favorite part of the job is getting to know the way our clients live and interact with their homes. Having designed for busy families and retiring couples alike, we know how important it is for design to both fit your needs as well as reflect a piece of your identity. Possibly the root of all our interiors is one simple question: How do you dwell? Take this simple quiz and discover what kind of space might best suit your lifestyle. When you’re finished, share your results on Facebook or Twitter (or both!) using one of the badges below and the hashtag #rethinkhowyoudwell.   1. It’s Summer time in the South. Your next weekend hangout spot is: A. A trip into town to soak up some rays while snagging the best deals. B. A trip to the park with the kids and pup in tow. C. Wherever your toes…

Our Top Picks: Bath Tub Essentials

As a small design house with several large projects on our plate, we get the need to unwind after a long day. For some it’s kicking their feet up and enjoying a favorite TV show, and for others, it’s being in good company over a well-prepared meal. But perhaps one of the most sought-after “happy places” of all time is a place not too far from home: the bath tub. Today we’re celebrating ways people wash away the stress of their day and cleanse themselves for the morning to come. Before you touch the faucet and grab the candles, make sure your bathroom oasis is packed with these five tub time essentials. 1. Soak the day away with this natural mineral blend from Barr-Co. Made of milk, oatmeal, vanilla, and vetiver, its known to soothe irritated skin and create a protective barrier to keep in moisture long…

On Site with Rethink

We’d love to think that most of our work is done in our chic new studio, creative juices flowing and sketchpad always at hand. However, our real strength comes in the execution; the ability to provide quality control while on site and to make sure that the ‘creative juices’ get turned into a real, tangible space that goes above and beyond our clients’ expectations. To give you a further look into our typical day to day, we’ve put together a few snapshots taken these past few weeks that give tribute to the real magic: seeing our designs come to life. In need of a room redo or have a new development on the rise? Feel free to contact us: info@rethinkdesignstudio.com. You can also view our portfolio here.

Back To School

If you follow us on Facebook, you heard some exciting news last week about our new office space; a renovated three-story school house on the Eastside (above). As renovation takes way to turn a single floor of individual classrooms into a collaborative studio, we can’t help but pull interior elements that evoke the back-to-school vibe. Because we move in this Fall, there couldn’t be better timing to think about notepads and freshly sharpened pencils to deck out the new studio. For a fresh schoolhouse look of your own, here are our top picks for an office space that’s sure to bring home straight-A’s. 1. Sharpen those geography skills well before the first bell rings with the new Cities Wallpaper by Rifle Paper Co. Hand-illustrated skylines of famous cities are printed on a parchment background, perfect for a desk nook. 2. This olive green compartment tray from School…
