Spring Pastels to Pop a Punch

This spring, bring a few pastels in your space to spruce it up!!

Pastels are not a thing of the past! Mix them with some sharp lines, and fun patterns for a 21st century look on the soft color trends.

Whether in furniture or accessories, 
you can mix and match these spring colors with ease.
They remind us of the "easter m&m's" that we love so much. 
The bright colors just make everyone think they taste better!! So therefore, your design taste shall be tastier too with new pastels.

 We love these pastel pieces that can play a huge role in your space. 
- adding a vase of colored spoons on your countertop can bring the pop you are looking for
- changing the legs on a bench is a fun and unexpected way to bring a pastel color in that we love!

Are you ready to jump on the pastel wagon this SPRING?

Surprising Entries and Happy Clients

As we've talked about before, the entryway is the opening chapter to your home. 
The preface, the letter A, the thing that sets the stage for what story your home will tell...

So we LOVE to surprise our clients with unique and fun ideas in an entryway .. however small they may seem, each details makes a huge impact.

This tiny focal wall speak volumes in so many ways!

An unexpected agate pair that color coordinates perfectly with the custom serene artwork

Our favorite surprise of all... a bench nestled into the console table, for cuteness as well as purposeful.

And a vase design that mirrors the artwork thoughts.

While it may seem trivial at first, you can see how quickly it turned into a masterpiece!

Black Matte Plumbing -- ALL the Rage

Gold, Black, Chrome ... What finish do YOU prefer in a fixture?

Today, we are here to tell you about the BLACK MATTE look that we are loving so much.

Why do we love them??

A black fixture immediately gets noticed, its sharp lines scream "look at me"

Not only do they look clean and sharp, but they STAY clean. They don't show water spots as easily as their chrome counterpart, and we love that.

We love that you can use black fixtures to go modern, rustic, or industrial. 
They are easily mixed and matched

You won't ever grow tired of these babes... and that's something to be happy about right there.

LED's Are Making Their Way UP in the Kitchen

Lights are the future of spectacular kitchen design!
You may have heard of different types of lightbulbs buzzing around the market these days, but we are here to tell you why LED lights can be the best decision for YOUR space.

We love to use LED strip lighting in glass cabinets or under-cabinet lighting.
These 3 reasons will convince you this IS the best decision!

1. Energy Savings: 
Extended use lighting such as LED's will increase your lifetime of a bulb

2. Size:
Underside of cabinets are getting less and less deep and the 1" deep lighting design has needed a change. LED's come in a variety of different sizes for this specific need!
See more of this TCI Project HERE

3. Color:
Beautiful, light and WHITE design is all the rage right now, and we are needing to move away from the yellow lighting that cast "dirty" light on stunning design. LED's shine a soft white light on whatever their design is!

Are you a LED believer??
