Pantone: Spring Breaker Approved!

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 1.02.14 PM

Pantone’s Color Palette for Spring 2015 is Spring Breaker approved– soft, warm tones have us wishing beachy weather would arrive sooner rather than later, but until that day comes, we can at least create interiors that reflect our desire for warmer weather!

FourHandsPantone

We’re turning to our friends at Four Hands for their soothing Spring neutrals! Four Hand’s Van Thiel line has the high-quality shabby-chic look we go for in crafting the perfect upscale, but comfortable and functional sun room or dinning area.

 

JaipurPantone

 

Rugs are one of the best ways to integrate pops of color to offset neutrals. Jaipur Rugs have bright, bold patterns–absolutely perfect for this year’s Spring palette. These cheery rugs demand to be the focal point of every room they’re in and make it impossible not to smile. Many of their rugs are also perfectly transitional — indoor and out!

For a softer look, that still adds color to your Springy interior, Leftbank Art’s Giclee Spring Harvest collection is sharp and elegant.

All three of these companies work wonderfully with designers and are always ahead of the curve– They’re definitely companies to keep on your designer radar and will be ones to watch at upcoming Design Camp events!

The Color of Love!

With Valentines Day just around the corner, we are feeling extra inspired by the new Pantone Color of the Year (Marsala!) and other eye-popping shades of red. We’ve perused the trades to find our favorite Valentine-Inspired products for the home because what better way to add a little romance in your house?!

A great way to integrate reds with subtlety is with a popping accent chair– like one of these pieces below. The Selamat Regent Arm Chair is perfect for an upscale shabby-chic San Fran flat, while Phillips Co’s seatbelt chair is a little more rock and roll.

Fermob’s bistro chairs are a classic favorite of ours and are perfect for romantic outdoor dinning. And Bungalow5 always surprises us with Eastern-inspired shapes and patterns– their feminine hourglass side table is no exception. It comes in a variety of finishes, but this firey red is pretty irresistible!

Lamps Plus is really tugging at our heart strings with this Chianti Glass Chandelier. We love a good statement light fixture, especially one that draws the eye upward! These adorable swivel chairs from Sunpan Modern Home are incredibly versatile: We’ve seen them used as both occasional chairs and around a dinning table.

How about snuggling with your honey on a sexy Natuzzi couch. It’s not only stylish and bold, but extremely comfortable! LOVE the lavish goose feather cushions and layer of memory foam. Leftbank Art has us in the mood for love with a cute little number, appropriately titled: Punch Drunk Love.

image001We’re anxious to know what you think of the Pantone color of the year–Is it a good year-round color or merely occasional? Tell us what you think!

And it wouldn’t be Valentine’s day without a little love poem so here’s one of our favorites to put you in the mood!  Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

By now you are likely familiar with Selamat Designs, the San Fran-based furniture manufacturer that not only crafts high-quality product, but owners Shannon and Thatcher Davis also work hard to minimize their carbon footprint.

eclectic-living-roomThe Selamat aesthetic is reflective of their mission statement: earthy and bright–which we have been head over heels for for years! Recently, they released a new line for formal living, a slight detour from their usual boho chic. We absolutely LOVE it and are anxiously anticipating their Tangier collection due out this year! Visit their site and take a look.

It Happened In Vegas…

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.34.02 PMBetween Design Camp and KBIS, we had a busy week at the World Market Center in Las Vegas! Camp kicked off with a beautiful vegetarian brunch in the Jaipur Rugs showroom. After a crazy day, shopping and insta-hunting around market, campers reconvened for a seminar from Lori and Kelli. Then camp concluded with a cocktail party at the Natuzzi showroom where campers had a chance to mix and mingle with fellow designers and vendors from around market.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.34.15 PMDirectly following camp was Kelli’s off-the-hook launch party for her new Tile Bar tile line– a huge hit. KBIS was full of beautiful creative innovations in the kitchen and bath design industry.

That’s a Wrap on Atlanta!

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 5.58.47 PM

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 6.03.00 PM

Another Design Camp comes to an end — Design Camp, Atlanta was one of our largest and most inspiring camps yet! We packed the theater at Americas Mart full of 600+ talented interior designers, eager to learn and impact the entire interior design community. These designers had the opportunity to learn from industry tastemakers Suzanne Kasler and Peter Zakas of Z Space Design, whose designs reach far beyond their distinctive aesthetics, stimulating creativity in everyone they come in contact with. Designers also benefitted from the always hilarious, resident Design Camp Deadhead and wine connoisseur, Adam Japko, whose expertise in online marketing is transferrable to just about every profession.

Click on the Thumbnails below to enlarge the images from #DesignCampATL!

Camp began with a social media scavenger hunt through America Mart’s premier showrooms. Campers mugged for the camera in Natuzzi’s leather recliners, which multiple campers deemed ‘the most comfortable chair ever.’ They threw imaginary tea parties in Fermob’s showroom and fell in love with Fermob’s Kintbury collection — They’re the absolute cutest outdoor chairs we’ve ever seen, perfect for a garden party! Campers gawked at gorgeous new collections in Jaipur Rugs, Currey and Company, Emporium Home, Noir, Europe2You, Leftbank Art, and more! We spotted some of our market favorites in Noir, Worlds Away, Fermob, and Jaipur.

Suzanne Kasler mingled with campers at her exclusive Design Camp booksigning in the Jaipur Rugs showroom. Her book Timeless Style features glossy, full-page images that truly transport you into her elegant imagination.

And what would camp be without a couple of cocktails? In typical Design Camp fashion, camp concluded with a cocktail party– We all knew Currey and Company knew how to design top-notch lighting and furniture, but did you know they also know how to go all-out hosting a party?

So here’s some bad news and good news: The bad news is; Atlanta Camp is over. The good news is; Vegas Camp is coming up on January 19th and there is still time to register online!  Stay tuned for more updates about Vegas and other future Camp endeavors. We have LOTS in the works that we cannot wait to share with you guys!
