Functional Art

Why decorate?  This creative solution to artful storage for wine, is a show stopper. It is simple, organized, and graphic. If you look carefully, you’ll notice the attention to detail given to the vertical alignment of the foil tops of the bottles, and color groupings of red, gold, black and silver. Pulling a punch of color for the banquette seating from the group of red foil tops of the wine bottles, creates a simple yet strong and cohesive presentation. The success of this space is founded in few, repeated elements, and one bold punch of color. This is an easy design strategy to use at home, and the artful wall display could incorporate any necessary tools or personal collection that is an expression of you. Have fun with it. I’d love to see your images! Now, I think this room would really scream with a third element to reinforce the color scheme. With the few, repeated elements, and one punch of color, take a look how different this room will become with the the range of FLOR rugs below. A room, easily transformed with each new introduction of fun on the floor. Easy to change with your mood or design inspiration.

Color of Nature

I often find inspiration in nature while developing a color palette for a design project.  I keep an ever evolving image library which I draw from when developing a concept.  I love to surround myself with the beauty of these images, and to use them as a guide while exploring possiblilities and appropriate solutions with a client.
