Architectural Botanicals

Branchy botanicals are a great way to add some fresh drama to the decor in your space.  We have reviewed some examples of gorgeous botanicals and ways to arrange them. 

These feathery green branches look stunning on this console table.  We love to style by pairing a fresh element with decorative sculptural objects and coffee table books.

Console Styling

Console tables are a versatile piece of furniture in a space. Consoles always require some styling that helps elevate a space with finishing decor.  We love discovering new ways to style consoles and bring a personal touch to a client’s home. 

This clean and modern console is styled with black and white books, sculptural art and simple decorative objects.  Stacking coffee table books with a heavy object such as a bowl or decorative weight is a great styling tip.

Gorgeous Gallery Walls

A fabulous framed gallery wall is the perfect way to display photographs and artwork.  There are many different ways to make a gallery wall your own, whether you prefer a more minimalist look or a funky eclectic one.  

A modern black and white gallery wall is displayed in this space.  We love the bold look of the frames going floor to ceiling, and keeping all the frames and matting streamlined.

Hospitality Bathrooms

Hospitality and commercial spaces require a different approach than residential projects for many different reasons.  The challenges of high-use space and general human factors make these projects difficult but rewarding.

This space showcases different layers of light that illuminate the gorgeous rough texture in the brick walls and highlight the original art imprinted on it.

Metal and metallic-look paneling is an ultra-glamorous way to add wow factor to your space.  We love the idea of mixing metal paneling with other materials to create a rich and diverse look.  

This stunning kitchen space uses gold paneling on the back of the kitchen peninsula.  Combined with the muted palette in this space, the gold accent really pops.

Feliz Navidad

This holiday season we are loving all of the quirky and colorful decor we are seeing!  Why go with the traditional green and red when you can use all the colors?  These Christmas decor ideas are inspired by handmade crafts and textiles found in Southern Mexico.  This boho style celebrates color and is a funky way to liven up your holiday decorations.

A hot pink Christmas tree and paper garland steal the spotlight in this living space.  We love the addition of colorful hand made gift wrappings.

Something Green

The power of adding a live green element to a space is transformative.  House plants add a special natural touch to the room and are good for your health!  Certain kinds of plants are known to help cleanse the air and create a calm, uplifting environment.
