A beautiful first day of summer! Fortunately for us, designing with florals are back…and they’re bigger and better than ever!

Inspiration board for a new beach house project.

There’s nothing more inspiring than a bright beautiful room to forget about the rain and cold weather!  We love this cheerful room at last year’s High Point Market and can’t wait to be inspired again this April!

Inspiration for an upcoming spring project. Love this new Clarke & Clarke Matador Collection!

We love how this kitchen was transformed using bright and uplifting color… a reflection of the family that lives in this home.

According to  a recent article in newsblaze.com, one of the trends that will influence US Homes in 2017 is titled “Modern Vintage”.  They describe it as “contemporary furniture based on vintage styles”.  This is not a trend likely to go away anytime soon.  It includes items that have natural textures and are also durable, such as abaca, cane and rattan.

Newsblaze goes on to say “the desire to make the best possible use of natural and sustainable resources makes sense in the context of how popular upcycling and
repurposing has become.  Indeed, it may mean that 2017 becomes known as a revitalizing game changer in terms of what has become the throwaway society.”

I love this trend because it really allows you to layer personality into any project.  (it also happens to strengthen our Design Principal #5: nature and sustainability!)

A few of our favorite websites for these kinds of finds are Chairish, 1st Dibs and Serena and Lily.
