Anyone that has ever renovated a home knows that it is a total roller coaster ride! The highs of the concept and kick-off where anything is possible, to the lows where you discover the entire structure is termite ridden and it seems nothing is possible. Then on to the part where you are stuck upside down ready to call in the rescue squad because the home is just torn to bits. I am thrilled to say that we are now at the less terrifying part of the theme-park-ride that is the reno of my own home: the furnishings!
We love designing interiors that are based on the key elements of classic elegance, functionality, and comfort. In this recent project, these components were our main focus. Our client has a young family and a love for travel so we wanted a space that was functional and family-friendly. The homeowner fell in love with the warm and natural hues of the desert town of Sedona and wanted to pull in the earthy textures and tones throughout her home. The result – a design that is modern yet, soothing and comfortable all tied together within a neutral color palette.
When it comes to remodeling projects, its a process and takes some time for them to really take off. There are tons of different pieces that you have to get started, but then all of a sudden…wow! Things start coming together and it feels like the project has shifted into hyperspeed. There has been a lot going on since our last update and now we’re really starting to get into the fun stuff!
There are few things in the design world that stay consistent. Trends change, new products emerge and classic designs are constantly reinterpreted. But despite the constant stream of changes, there is one thing that has remained Classically Current – black and white. This sophisticated and timeless color combination is not only striking and bold but the ideal match for any color palette. It provides the perfect base for any design that both minimalists and traditional interior lovers will appreciate.
Hey Guys! I’ve got some big and exciting news over at the Dbh-biz.info studio. Our Team just attended the ASID Ruby Awards this past Sunday and ended the night with not one, but SIX awards!. I am so proud of this amazing team. Their hard work, mixed with uber-amounts of talent has produced gorgeous projects over the past years. And I am thrilled to see them recognized by their Interior Design industry peers within the American Society of Interior Designers this year.
When you think of feminine colors, shades of pink are one of the first colors that come to mind. For quite a while now, millennial pink has been a hot color in the design world. But I feel the winds of change a-blowin’ and I’m calling it: This season I’m predicting that lilac is the new blush!
Getting the opportunity to collaborate with one of our go-to rug vendors has been such a fun experience! Over the past several months we’ve been meeting and working with the team at Tai Ping to create our own custom rug collection. And after a few brainstorming sessions, we were able to settle on a theme and learn all about the technical details of manufacturing a rug. We recently sat down with Corbin Perkins of to get an update on the rugs and sneak a peek at two completed rug samples, fully made based on sketches and selections from the last meeting.
October has been a month of travels, several team member birthdays (including a milestone for this one right here) and TONS of inspiration. As you probably know – because I constantly talk about it! – October brings my annual trip to High Point Market. It’s the best opportunity for the industry to discover new introductions from the best design houses and manufacturers in the US. This is a market visit I eagerly anticipate each fall so, if you haven’t checked out my HPMKT Recap, give it a read.
As this eventful month comes to a close the Dbh-biz.info team is happy to share our new sources of inspiration. From bold furnishings, to fun lighting, to gorgeous accents we can’t wait to share our finds with you. I hope you discover your next obsession here too!
Whether we’re painting walls, upholstering furniture or adding accessories, color is one of our favorite ways to set our interiors apart. But as much as we love classic color combos like black & white or jewel tones, we often opt for the more unexpected and playful combination of orange and blue hues. Now it may seem like an odd pairing, but I assure you it’s a marriage made in color heaven.
There has been so much happening at The Boulevard Show House (read all about the big announcement here) that sometimes I have 20 things going on at the same time. We’ve been making so much progress that I couldn’t wait to share another update with you! The new walls and floors are on their way to being installed and, before they do, we’re finalizing the next phase of the renovation: home technology!
