With shorter daylight hours and a chill in the air, we get an almost irresistible urge to make some changes to our interior spaces that will sustain us until it’s beach weather again. Here are some of our favorite interior design trends for fall:
A Charleston home and the next generation of performance fabric is a match made in heaven. You might remember the earlier versions of ultra-durable fabrics: Scratchy, stiff, and not at all nice to touch. However, they were a necessary evil in industrial office spaces, hospitals, and beach rentals. Lucky for us Lowcountry dwellers, things have drastically changed.
If you could fly anywhere in the world for free, where would you go? That’s the question our lead designer, Delta Amrhein, and her husband had to answer this year.
We’ve put the finishing touches on our newly renovated and expanded design studio and we couldn’t be happier. Our studio is our home away from home. It’s where we develop relationships, create, dream, and get inspired. This larger space gives us plenty of room to spread out vision boards, meet with clients, and display one-of-a-kind treasures and favorite accessories. (Stay tuned for a post on our current favorite accessories!)
We’re excited to show you some photos and behind-the-scenes shots from our recent project, The Quay at Bishop Gadsden.
Each year Pantone picks a “Color of the Year”; a symbolic color choice that reflects what the Pantone Color Institute believes is an expression of a global mood. This year’s color? #15-0343, affectionately known as “Greenery.”
Now that the holidays are almost behind us, it’s time to think about a nice, long rest. To inspire you, here are some of our favorite bedrooms:
Interior design can have an enormous impact on the people who spend time in that space, and the intersection of design and well being is an important crossroads. When designing commercial spaces, such as the medical office we recently helped renovate, we have different considerations than when designing a private home.
Just for fun today we thought we’d give you a tour of Charleston’s historic Dock Street Theater, one of our interior design projects from a few years ago. The renovation is a perfect illustration of traditional Charleston interior design. The theater was built in 1809 as a hotel and converted to a theater in 1935, and today is a beloved part of the Holy City’s art (and social) scene.
If you’ve got a couple of inherited oriental rugs stashed in the attic, it’s time to get them out. Persian and oriental rugs were once a staple of traditional interiors, but over the last couple of years they’ve been making an appearance in every type of design.
