The Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens 2013

Get an inside look at our latest completed project as well as several other Historic District residences this weekend on March 23rd during The Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens. You’ll be able to tour three stories of newly renovated space that has been completely furnished and designed to both fit the needs of the family and express their unique personalities – from every finish and furnishing to stemware and silverware! Because we are so excited to reveal what we have been working on for the last year or so, here are a few sneak peeks of the progress leading up to this weekend: For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens website. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see the latest leading up to the big event. We hope to see you soon!

Project Breakdown: Kid-Friendly Living Room

Remember the mid century style cocktail room we showed way back?  This is the playroom / family room, which was a design challenge as we had to accommodate the whole family.  The room is geared towards the kids overall, but we wanted to create a space equally as comfortable for adults.  This was accomplished by blending neutrals with pops of bright color and furniture that is child friendly AND has great design.  In addition to the large living and playing space, there is a small office off to the side.  Although it is an office for the parents, we carried the “fun” element into the streamlined space with a bright alphabet wallpaper, which is a nod to Architect and Textile Designer Alexander Girard.   Girard made a name for himself in the 50’s and 60’s working with designers like George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames.  His work was often vibrant in color, bold in pattern…

Oh Baby… Organic Modernism!

We recently worked with a DIY client on her new baby’s nursery and it got us thinking… Why not create a great nursery space that has all the style of a grown up room? While our client had a baby girl, we put this particular room inspiration together with a baby boy in mind.    We pulled sophisticated furniture that is appropriate for any age as well as tactile (and often handmade) accessories that bring whimsy to the space.  Overall, we were going for a young and modern take on a woodsy cabin idea and this is what we came up with: 1.  The wallpaper is a graphic wood grain print in blue on a white background.  Try papering the whole room or just make one wall a feature. 2.  The handmade patchwork birds gathered on this Etsy mobile are so sweet and whimsical. 3.  This walnut and white sideboard…

More Purple…Wallpaper

For those of you that really want a statement: Try a purple wallcovering on a feature wall or even a whole room. When papering a feature wall: Try matching a color from the wallcovering to paint the other walls in the room- it will help create a more cohesive look. If papering all walls: Don’t forget the ceiling!  It is a great opportunity to add drama or subtlety to a room.  Try using a grasscloth for a softer look or pull the same paper up to the ceiling to create the feeling of an envelope. 1.

Spotted!

Bravo’s 9 by Design is a docu-series based on a NYC design firm called Sixx Design (Aptly named for their once 6 person family- now 9!).  The husband and wife team are known for fresh, hip spaces that blend high with low and vintage with modern.  These pics are from a redesign of a wrestling gym lounge and we noted their use of Tres Tintas’ large scale Hexagono wallpaper.  Tres Tintas is a Barcelona based company that is committed to the vision of the “artist”.  They have a very wide range of visual styles produced by multiple different designers who have all worked in various fields (ie.  fashion, graphic design, illustration). These 3 papers are from Tres Tintas’ Revival line and are based on designs from the 50’s and 60’s.
