Before & After | Longmont Kitchen

Hi All!

A few of you have mentioned how much you love to see “before and after’s”, so we’ve decided to introduce an awesome kitchen renovation we recently completed! Our Longmont Residence had a really great foundation: newer appliances, countertops, and backsplash, but needed to be fully brought up to date.

Best Seat in the house

Hello All,

Today we want to talk about the chair. You know exactly which one it is; It’s the chair. The one with the cushions from heaven, the armrest at the perfect height, the right angle to watch TV. The chair that you rely on for a relaxing Sunday read. We know that chair, and understand how much of a necessity it is. Check out some of our favorite ‘favorite chairs’ that we’ve used in previous projects.

[ezcol_1half]This chair from our Hyde Park project has a comfortable feeling with a contemporary appeal. We love that it uses such a simple pattern and cream color. Eames-style arm chairs and ottomans are a timeless look to fit any room. So often we settle for grandpa’s old chair and, happily, it’s pretty fab![/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 4.19.30 PM[/ezcol_1half_end]

Frieze New York: Bright Lights, Fabulous Art

Hi Everyone!

Our dear friend, Mary Hammon Lee, has shared with us her experience at the latest Frieze Art Fair in NYC where she saw some incredibly impactful contemporary art. Art is such an integral part of interior design and has been the source of a large amount of our design inspiration. Mary Hammon has picked out a few of her absolute favorites from the fair that outline the true talent and unique styles that each artist had to offer.

Enjoy!

Laura

The Frieze Art Fair originated in London in October 2003, and compliments the Contemporary auctions that take place there every October. Frieze New York was launched in 2012, alongside the May New York Contemporary auctions.

Taking a ferry to the fair’s luxury tent on Randall’s Island is half the fun. The people watching is equally entertaining. But, best of all, the art!

I’ve outlined a few of my favorites below.

Tangerine Dream

[ezcol_1half]Hi Everyone!

You have probably noticed that we LOVE gorgeous pops of color, in almost any space! And from our , you may have noticed our obsession with the vibrant red-orange we like to call ‘Tangerine Dream’. Our board features great ideas on how to incorporate this color into your home, all at-a-glance.

From a Dreamsicle pastel version, to a muted pumpkin, to brights that are the visual equivalent of a hefty dose of Vitamin C, orange is a great way to infuse your space with a sunny energy!

One classic pairing is a cool gray with a vibrant tangerine it – looks modern and bright and clean!

Another favorite combo is combining lavender with washed out orange. It’s feminine, but not too frilly.

Here we paired a bright tray with a custom upholstered sitting chair to add the perfect pop of orange into the formal living room of our Parkside Contemporary home.

You can bring this energetic and refreshing color into your space in so many ways; a single accent item or wall, a small grouping or accessories collection, or coating your room wall to wall in tangy color for a bold effect. and feel free to show us how you have incorporated a little tangerine into your own spaces!

Until Next Time,

Laura
