Our Top Picks: HGTV Fresh Faces of Design 2015

Crazy for Color | House of Many Styles   When HGTV approached us to submit our work for this year’s HGTV Fresh Faces of Design Competition, we knew exactly which house to send. If you’ve been a longtime follower of our Facebook or Instagram, you’ve had a private tour behind one of downtown’s historic row houses that boasts an interior far from “cookie cutter”. Full of color, texture, and branded spaces that speak to each family member’s personality, West Perry is undoubtedly one of our favorite projects to date. We’re honored to be a part of a curated selection of other talent across the country that puts just as much emphasis on designing a branded environment; ensuring a space that both reflects the homeowner and can easily evolve along with their lifestyle. And now, we need your help to claim the title of winner in either the Master Retreats or Crazy for Color…

New Brass + Copper Lighting from Barn Light Electric

If design trends have taught us anything over the past several years, it’s that popular metallic finishes like brass and copper are here to stay. Up until now, the lighting industry has made leaps and bounds with decorative fixtures, but the industrial aesthetic kept to its familiar finishes: enamel and galvanized steel. All of that is changing now thanks to Barn Light Electric, a forerunner in the industrial lighting biz and a particularly favorite vendor for some of our commercial projects (think farm-to-table in Asheville and future Savannah-based butcher shop). If you’re looking to add a bit of shine to your next kitchen, bath, or commercial project, check out some of our favorite picks from the new collection. Having trouble with scale and placement? Give us a ring – we’d be happy to help. Sources: 1. Outback Industrial Brass Pendant / 2. Bowie Copper Wall Sconce / 3. Fargo…

Living With The Butcher

As our much-anticipated butcher shop project breaks ground this week, we were inspired to bring you the fundamental elements of our design in the form of a farm-fresh living space. In true Savannah style, kick back in those classic Hunter boots on an industrial coffee table while getting face to face with a longhorn – it’s what’s for dinner. 1. Set the tone more towards sophisticated than barnyard-chic with Cisco’s Spider Chandelier. Spanning an impressive 72″, the large fixture can fill a room without seeming too heavy. 2. Always have the fields on your mind even when inside with a geometric planter from Light & Ladder. Try filling with a low-maintenance variety like jade or a common succulent. 3. Take fancy farm living head on with this stunning photographic print from on of our favorite art sources, The Animal Print Shop. Use a minimal mat with a 1-inch frame…

Our Top Picks: Industrial Pendant Lights

Image via Whether anchoring down a dining table or lighting a kitchen island, industrial pendant lights have come a long way from their warehouse counterparts. Available in a range of finishes, some more contemporary than others, these hanging pendants provide a large scale lighting solution for your home. When specifying an industrial light, be sure to take into consideration the drop height, the type of drop (rod or chain), and the amount of light it will shed. Most metal shades will cast a focused downlight, requiring additional lighting in the space. If you’re hoping to let one of these pendants stand solo, be sure to pick out a shade that allows light to escape, as seen below in #6. Here are a few of our top picks to date: Sources: 1. Lincoln – Light & Living  / 2. Carson Rod Pendant – Rejuvenation  / 3. Madrid Pendant Light – Barn…

Get The Look: Parisian Glam

Image via CNN It’s every American’s dream to wake up hearing the streets of Paris and feel time stand still. As the scent of freshly baked croissants linger through your window, you seem drawn to grab a bite before taking a long stroll through a nearby garden. If the vie de francaise has been calling your name as of late, you’re not alone. Maybe it’s the promise of sweet Summer romance, or the call to take an afternoon off and picnic in Forsyth Park. To bring the romance of Paris back home, we’ve put together a French-inspired contemporary master suite that aims to make the days grow longer and the nights to be full of nothing short of magic. 1. We set the tone to this posh Parisian suite with romantic lilac tones found in Noble and Wood’s Berlingot Wallpaper. Place behind the bed for a feature wall or use as a poppy dresser drawer liner…
