Our clients loved the nature and lifestyle of being in the suburbs but also desired the modern and contemporary designs that are found in the city. So when they asked us to design a home for them to retire in, we wanted the space to bring together the best of both worlds. This retreat home (which was featured in !) is a modern, efficient, no-frills space. It was designed to be functional and family-friendly but definitely isn’t light on the luxurious details.
Today we’re taking a look back on this classic Dbh-biz.info design! This past project was completed in 2013 and ended up being a unique process – we worked on this home in multiple phases that allowed the design of the home to grow along with the size of our client’s family. Our clients initially came to us with an ultra sleek and modern concept but as their family grew, this aesthetic shifted to include bight and colorful kid’s rooms. The end result was something totally unique that incorporated and represented the clients perfectly!
We love before and after shots, especially when the end result is as chic of a look as our Pine Circle living room!
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.
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.
Last week we got a glimpse of what individual pieces are making waves in the interior design world, but what about the big picture? Let’s take a step back and see what’s predicted to happen on a larger scale.
A big thanks to Darla Guillen at for featuring Dbh-biz.info Interior Design earlier in the week. We are excited to be chosen as the first designer featured in their four questions series!

Until Next Time,
Spring has just begun, and we’re thinking about the beach already! Our showed one of our latest projects in sunny Galveston, Texas. This home has us in the mood for summer breezes, with a cool drink in hand.
We are so excited to have received the professional pictures from this project (thanks Julie Soefer Photography!), and we thought we’d take a look at some of our favorite rooms these next couple of weeks: today, one of the guest bedrooms and baths!
[ezcol_1half]The homeowner asked for plenty of space for family to spend their summer holidays, and the cozy yet airy bunk beds help fill this need admirably! (I love the way the top bunk seems to float in midair!)
With touches of the same watery cerulean accents found throughout the rest of the home, the aesthetic is bright, white, and cool—lots of family memories to be made here!
I also love the wavy pattern of the area rug (seen below, from the bath), which neatly ties in our nautical, sea-touched theme.
The bath continues the beachy theme with the beadboard detail on the doors of the cabinetry. The deeper teal blue on the cabinetry adds a little gravitas to the room. And isn’t that porthole mirror just so fitting?
Next week, we’ll feature another couple of rooms from our beach getaway project. For more of our favorite interior images follow us on ![/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end][/ezcol_1half_end]
See you then!
