scheme starters

taste designers share their favorite interior elements

 

 

 

 

Summer time has us scheming up rooms and homes from Boston’s South Shore (yes, we’ll work in Boston!) to Barrington to Westerly and boats in between.  The studio is brimming with new materials, furnishings and art as we scour, edit and assemble interiors for our client projects.  Often, we’re inspired by a rug, a piece of art or a fixture that becomes a starter scheme for a future project.  These starter schemes are throughout the studio (and in our designers’ imaginations) just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come to life.  Take a peek at the seeds of a room, ready to grow into a fresh space and reach out if one speaks to you!

Only the best,

“I love this antique Persian runner. The orange, blue and citron feel so fresh even though it’s 100 years old! The Serena & Lily console table is a piece that could work well in many homes; the grasscloth provides great texture and a coastal feel. The Hwang Bishop (made in Warren, RI) sculptural lamp would pair nicely, with its clean lines and rectilinear shapes.”

“Making a coastal home feel fresh is one of my most favorite client assignments.  Layering graphic patterns with organic materials keeps it upbeat and in-situ at the beach.  And, as a dabbling artist myself, I always try and finish a room with original art, however small, to provide the integrity that only handmade objects bring.”

an infusion of fresh color and interesting shapes to create happy, joyful spaces.”

fine european linens have arrived at taste

 

Late last fall as taste designer Candy Langan was wrapping up a yacht project, box after box started to arrive and pile up in our small studio. Inside the growing sea of boxes, were the most beautiful collection of custom towels, sheeting and linens we’ve ever had the pleasure to provide on a client project. As each was opened and organized for installation, we all got the fine linen bug…

Candy is masterful at detailing and crafting all the elements that go into a great night’s sleep. From baffled mattress pads to custom-embroidered sheets and down inserts topped with plush duvets and coverlets, Candy considers all layers for both ultimate comfort and aesthetic pleasure.

She draws from various sheeting collections, depending on the tastes of our clients,  including lushly woven linens reminiscent of a fine Italian dress shirt to sleek sateen offering its classic sheen and silken quality. Custom embroidery adds the perfect detail to personalize for our clients and finish our designs with a tailored elegance. Down and down-alternatives provide the right elements for every body and Candy’s even found an easy-care wash and dry line of fine sheeting that doesn’t forsake european elegance.

As a result, we’ve all climbed aboard and are excitedly incorporating fine linens into our designs — now more easily accessible to us and to our clients.

Sweet dreams,
