Classic Materials Installed in Unexpected Ways

From Morgan Harrison home, love the way the installation of the fireplace marble.  Instead of installing a clean slab, it was cut to create a diamond design.  Case in point how classic materials installed in a creative fashion can take something from beautiful to downright knockout!

The Rattan wall here installed floor to ceiling in a geometric pattern is a show stopper in this minimalistic space.  If anyone knows who designed this space please let me know, found it on Pinterest.  Would like to give credit!

Simple black and white artwork layered on top of each other creates such drama!  I also like the way they chose to install this on a wall that is curved, a spot that is often difficult to make look finished, now looks fabulous and unexpected.

The tile installation on the back wall of this shower.  Simple hardwood floor look alike tile is taken to another level just with the installation.

Inspiration from Pinterest

As an interior designer, I think many of us are very visual which is why I love Pinterest and Instagram.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Here are a few of my boards for the week that are inspiring me personally as well as my projects.  Not sure if all of the layering is due to the winter weather coming in and the need to create a haven for the winter to rejuvenate.  For me home is everything.  It is a safe haven, it rejuvenates and it nourishes.

I am loving all of these layers and mix of pattern and colors.  For me personally this may be a bit to much, but this with a touch of restraint is fabulous.

This is my Color At It's Best Board, more color, pattern and texture!

For me fashion has always been tied closely to interiors.  I'm loving all of this, it is all about layers and texture.  Dressing like a million bucks makes you feel like a million bucks and I'm all for it!

Then a complete departure to simple Modern Farmhouse exteriors.  I have been on the hunt for a flip house for sometime....and this is my plan for the exterior when I find one.  I love the casual farmhouse feel, yet there is still a formality to the homes as well.  Fingers crossed 2018 I will find one to transform!  Would love to see what is inspiring you all on Pinterest, please share on my Facebook page.

BLUEPRINT VINTAGE COMING SOON

BLUEPRINT VINTAGE COMING SOON

It's no secret I have an obsession with vintage finds....not sure if it is the thrill of the hunt or my love for beautiful things.  I started in the business with Antique booths then included decorative painting.  I was revamping and renewing old finds when it wasn't a thing....and my love for it has never stopped.  My home is a mix of old, new, custom and everything in between, which is how I like it....an Eclectic mix of beautiful things that constantly rotate throughout the year.

Almost every home I design includes some sort of vintage finds....mixed in.  For me it creates a one of a kind look and is signature in my design work.

So I am happy to say as part of my BLUEPRINT service we will be adding BLUEPRINT VINTAGE. A vignette step by step style guide and shop.  We will be sharing tried and true tricks to mixing vintage with modern to create a luxurious layered home.  The beauty of this is that you can buy the entire styled vignette, styled by professionals in the industry or buy piece by piece to add to what you already own.

In addition to the launch of BLUEPRINT VINTAGE we will be offering for sale many of our custom furniture pieces.... These will be available in our STUDIOWORKS SHOP. I think you will really love what we have to offer.  We will be offering both retail and To The Trade Pricing.  If you are a fellow designer please don't hesitate to call for trade pricing.
