All of the planning and styling that goes into your event can and should translate to your every day. We live in color. We live for eclectic. Our only rule is to never be neutral. Let us make your interior dreams happen.
maximalist home design
A maximalist and moody living room design project turning a very vanilla house into a not-so-vanilla house. We loved the floor and entryway tile so we switched the basic white door for a moody black with a window to let more light in, added plush vintage rugs and painted the walls opposite the bold, floral wallpaper a soft blush to serve as a neutral and place to rest your eye. Mixing patterns and textures (as we do) and bringing in tons of green plants and color helped to warm this space up from a contractor grade build to the happiest home.
home office design
When Katie of (en)courage Coaching reached out to turn her guest bedroom into a home office for her coaching business, we jumped at the chance to help give her a place to work and take clients during Covid (on video) but that would also transition to the "after times" to meet people (in person.) The room was a total blank slate and we loved how she went for it: choosing a bold pattern for the wallpaper and a complimentary deep-hued wall color. We created a desk/work area at the window and a seating area area to sit with clients (and relax after a long day!)
This rental unit had been inhabited by the same family for decades (and not a ton of updates had been done over the last few decades to say the least.) After we spent weeks and weeks cleaning and patching one million holes in the walls, we got to designing. While it was just a rental it felt important to make it our own so we tried to choose wisely where to paint and invest in a couple of funky wallpaper walls. We chose a soothing blue shade to contrast and repeated that color in the dining room for some consistency with some bolder blues to contrast in the office. Our signature mix of patterns and textures completed the glorious old apartment that we think we made feel brand-new.
This airy Bucktown one bedroom apartment got a bright and cheery makeover. It hadn't been properly cleaned in years (it's always helpful to start with a clean slate!) and then we got down to business. Butter yellow walls in the living room and kitchen (that actually didn't get a ton of natural light) cozy grey in the bedroom with a hand-painted gold stencil statement wall and an all-white bed so as not to compete with the show stopper. We finished it off with a fresh coat of cheery red patio furniture and a DIY pallet planter box for a welcoming place to sit and have coffee tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
