When I think of the element of wind, two different things come to mind. Wind is not as visually tangible as some of the other elements and so is rather hard to pin down. Wind, to me, is more of a feeling than anything else. Most people don't realize that with interior design our ultimate goal is create a certain mood in every space. Wind can be chaotic like a hurricane, or a gentle and peaceful breeze felt while standing on a snowy mountain top on a sunny day. This bedroom is inspired by the latter, utilizing an icy metallic color palette that is muted, fairly monochromatic, and sparkles like snow on a sunny day.

I love the way the elements of this design play together and create the illusion of different types of movement. The table lamp reminds me of the blowing wind, and the wall mirror makes me think of a soothing windmill spinning in the breeze. Artwork allows for a more literal translation of the inspiration, and this cool-toned tree blowing in the wind fits the mood perfectly.

Inspired by the Elements: Earth

Inspiration for a room design can come from literally anywhere, even the elements themselves. At our firm, we typically start with asking our prospective clients what sort of mood they would like to create for their home environment, and recently I have been wondering what kinds of moods the elements of nature could evoke? I thought it would be fun to explore this by partially creating four unique luxury bedroom concepts. Any of these room concepts you will see in this series can be fleshed out further if you desire to hire our firm and expand upon them to create an actual space in your home. We would love to see any of these spaces actually come to life.

When I think of earth I think of feeling cozy, rich and homey. Neutrals and earth tones tend to evoke these feelings and therefore tend to appeal to a large number of people. I also decided to add a touch of glam with the gold accents because it only seemed fitting that a precious metal from the earth be included as a part of this concept. God is, after all… from the Earth!

From My Coffee Table to Yours: Celerie Kemble

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with black and white interiors. The house that I had in my mid-twenties was all black and white with a few pops of color. This book by Celerie Kemble is a compilation of works by several different designers, all featuring black and white spaces. This book has been great inspiration for traditional, transitional and contemporary interiors alike. I always find myself wanting to stick by the tried-and-true classic style, which can also be paired with literally any color if black and white alone is too boring for you (although I personally don't see how the stark contrast of black and white could ever be considered boring). I say if you want to create some interiors that will have both drama and stand the test of time, go black and white.
