about me test

“The other fabrics are going to be dressing the bed, the most important area of the room. Bed Pillows will be made out of the Pyne Hollyhock Floral & the Indigo Betwixt Fabric. I will also be taking the white bed to a new level by adding in lots of textures & details… One of my tricks from being a Hotel Designer in my previous life. Every hotel wants a White Bed! You have to switch them up somehow.” – Kristin of Hunted Interior

“I knew I wanted to make a statement with a large swath of pattern in the room, but I wasn’t sure whether this pattern would be incorporated through fabric or wallpaper. I ended up choosing Robert Allen’s FUTURA FABRIC from DecoratorsBest that will be featured in two huge curtain panels.” – Kevin of Thou Swell

“As for the look and feel, I had a good idea what I wanted from the start. We used a neutral wave pattern wallpaper by Cole and Son (available through ORC sponsor, DecoratorsBest) in our last closet and loved it so much I’m using it again. It has a wonderful calming effect that my husband loves and it’s a great starting point for the overall design.” – Cristin of Simplified Bee

Once a public library in Portland, Oregon this building was remodeled into a unique home. Library shelving was added in many rooms to keep the spirit of the original structure.

Instead of building a new home, save a building from destruction and restore it as your one of a kind home.

A modern and clean look is warmed by the custom mohair chairs in this dining area. Mohair is sheared from the angora goat and this textile provides a unique, renewable and sustainable source of fiber.  Since it is very durable, it is an excellent choice for upholstery.

Green Design Tip: Stone floors
As a natural product, stone is inherently earth-friendly and has many environmentally friendly qualities: durability, ease of care and maintenance, recyclability, an enduring life-cycle plus quarry and manufacturing best practices.

When choosing an area rug size, many factors come into consideration. As a general rule of thumb, if you intend for the rug to fill an entire room, always leave at least 18-inches of bare floor between the edge of the rug and the baseboards. As for other rules and guidelines, these vary by room. We’ve created this rug guide to help you tread through the options.
