Who Doesn’t Like A Good Tile Job…

When creating a new tile presentation or re-doing an old one…why not GO ENCAUSTIC?

If you’re designing a room or entire house most consumers main objective is to create something that is timeless.  This is virtually impossible, the only way you can possibly create timelessness is with pure white…but even with that color choice…tile and design sizes change through the decades.

For instance what you like now, might not be what you would like or fashionable 10 years from now.  Plus, the colorways that are currently strong, will not be the same tones desired 10 to 15 years from now.

Take green for example…90’s it was Sage Green, 2000’s it was Chartreuse Green’s, and now for 2010’s it Emerald Green.

So trying to stay classic and clean?  Stay neutral!

Though beige years are really “so last decade”, we are now currently enthralled with the gray tones.  Or dare I say “gray-eige”, for those who still embrace, tans and beige tones!

TILE ON!

No Lives Have Ever Been Lost from Design Errors…

But you would think that…when a Designer creates an error even with something as simple as a pillow.  That life support needs to be on stand-by.

Here are 10 ways that Designers like to create that unique stamp on a room!HomeDesign6

  1.  Comfort is the key to Great Design.

  2.  Create Impact walls with Art not just color!

  3. Do NOT over Design the room…most importantly CONTRIVED ROOMS are BORING!

4. Buy the BEST you can!

5. Gathered rooms create interest…something old, something new, something black, something shiny, and add lots of textures.

6. Stop doing DECORATIVE Bed…instead create FASHIONABLY Functional beds!

7.  Layer, layer and for gosh sake LAYER…with color and textures!

8.  Try not to match Art work with room decor.

9. Books…add lots of CHARACTER to a room!

10. Buy quality main pieces…coordinate with TRENDY accents so that it’s easy to transition out…when you’re updating!

No fabric or accessory was hurt in the creation of this blog post!

Designer Secret’s…

More inside information that helps take your design projects to the next level:

  • Use accent colors…not just main colors that are in the rooms fabrications.
  • When re-doing your bathrooms place vanities at 36″ height(standard is 30″) and this is not just for tall people.  But it helps give the room a more elegant and sophisticated feel.
  • Another tip for bathrooms…try not to use towel bars…opt for hooks instead.  Hang 5 robe hooks 68″ off floor for towels and robes.
  • Do you have a lamp with two sockets…place one white and make the other bulb pink.  This is especially nice in living room’s for great soft and flattering light.
  • When changing hardware on cabinets and doors, request un-lacquered.  This way allows the natural patina to come through slowly and adds an interesting element of texture.
