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…

Project Breakdown: High-Style Kitchen

When a New York-native family moved into an 1850s row house right in the heart of historic downtown Savannah, they imagined a space that reflected both the relaxed atmosphere of Southern spaces and the high-style interiors found throughout “the big apple.” The result is a sophisticated, contemporary home that places an emphasis on functionality while pushing the limits of design. 1. A custom brass light fixture sits above the island to center the room and bring a warmer feel to an otherwise utilitarian space. 2. Use every inch of vertical space by placing back-lit storage above existing cabinetry. We recommend using push-touch cabinet fasteners to avoid having to use typical knob hardware for a streamlined facade. 3. Having built-in adjustable shelves at counter height allow for easy access of kitchen items used most often such as spices and coffee. This kitchen features a motorized backsplash that conceals shelf clutter with…

Chalkboards aren’t just for children

There is just something about chalkboards that bring you back to childhood. It is sad to think with so many new products available, such as dry erase boards, kids today may not get to experience the “click”, “click”, and “SCREECH” associated with chalk. Or, witness the pounding of erasers and the clouds of dust left behind. But who’s to say all the fun is gone? There are many ways to keep chalk alive in your everyday life. Check out some of the ideas below for incorporating blackboards into your home, office and garden. Whether you like the look of white on a crisp black or if you find something nostalgic in the ghostly white wash left over after a cleaning – there is no doubt you’ll find an idea that suits your needs. If using labels – remember the more you have the higher the impact and the more organized…

Love it! John Corcoran Designs

We came across this designer on Etsy the other day and although he’s only got a few items available- we are LOVING them! This little lightbulb bud vase is the product of ingenuity and simplicity at its best.  I also love reading the story of the inspiration behind the design. Also, check out his fabulous closet shelf/hanging system.  I want one immediately (okay, make it 4).  I love the Scandinavian sort of vibe of the delicate metal framework and bleached wood.  Go check it out!
