Crisp, sophisticated whites, grays, and indigos have dominated interior design trends in the last few years. While these combinations never go out of style, warm colors are making their way into Charleston interiors. Driven by the popularity of blush pinks and rose gold, we’re seeing the addition of toasty mustards, deeper shades of rose, terra cotta, rust, and even salmon (a perennial Charleston favorite).
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:
Color and Mood
Color and mood go hand in hand. Color, even in your choice of accessories, can have a big impact on the mood of your room. Color can comfort, energize, calm, inspire and so much more. Here are some ways we’ve used color to change the mood of a room:
Room to Breathe
One of the most important concepts in good design is giving important art, furniture and objects room to breathe. That means leaving enough space around them so that you can appreciate them, either consciously or subconsciously.

Last Round of Charleston Interior Design in Atlanta!
Here we go! Final round of Atlanta finds. Charleston Interior Design is as global as a plane ride or a car trip or the internet for that matter. While we love and cherish our local resources, we strive for an awareness of all that is out there. This philosophy allows us to bring truly the best and most unique selections into the MDI studio and then into our clients’ homes. A lot of what we enjoyed were creative takes on wall decor.
Charleston Designers, Atlanta Markets
Whew! We’re back from Atlanta and our heads are spinning with great new ideas. Did we mention that we also came straight back to a big installation?! Be on the lookout for the new project to appear on the blog soon. MDI doesn’t just go to High Point in the fall and spring; MDI also tries to make to Atlanta every year or so.
Residential Tile Design: MDI Finds Inspiration In Chicago
Well, hello, Ann Sacks! It is probably safe to say that the Ann Sacks showroom is one of the most fun of all times. For reference, NeoCon is a couple of floors at the Chicago Merchandise Mart.

The images kind of speak for themselves as spectacular examples of residential tile design.
