Jump into Fall: Interiors Inspiration Palette

      After we completed our inspiration palette for summer and the leaves began to change with cooling temperatures, our design team started collecting materials for our fall palette, which is warm, earthy and textural. Not familiar with our seasonal palette projects? Our goal is to embody the essence of each current season while utilizing various materials that are used in interior design.   With the temperatures and amount of daylight dropping rapidly, many people turn inward during the fall. The comfort that sweaters, soft blankets and hot drinks bring is soothing with winter gradually approaching. We brought in cozy fabrics, like velvet and felt to capture this need to stay warm with transitioning weather. We also took … Continue reading

Resimercial Design in the Office: Your Home Away from Home

    Sitting too long in one place with no change of scenery other than the walls of one’s cubicle can be a drain to some. That’s why collaborative spaces, touch-downs and other options for employees to move around continue to raise in popularity. With recent advancements in technology, a lot of us are going mobile. Why sit at your desk all day if you don’t have to? Workplace wellness is a hot topic that’s leading to major changes in the workplace and in office design. Companies are learning that an office with proponents like more natural light, sit-to-stand desks, … Continue reading

Summer State of Mind: Interiors Inspiration Palette

    After completing our inspiration palette for spring, our designers were looking forward to collecting materials for our summer palette, which is colorful, vibrant and fresh. Not familiar with our seasonal palette projects? Our goal is to embody the essence of each current season while utilizing various materials that are used in interior design.   We took inspiration from the heat, as summer is the hottest in temperature out of the four seasons. Envision canyons in Arizona with a sunset backdrop made of dusky pinks and soft oranges. Or, imagine a fiery desert sun beaming on cacti plentiful with flowers in bloom. In the summer, the days are longer and the nights are shorter. … Continue reading

Biophilic Design in the Office

    The cubicle has really gained a reputation throughout the years. For many, it’s one of those “things we love to hate.” So much so, that Wired published an article titled “These Are The Saddest Office Cubicles We Could Find” in which readers were asked to tweet a photo of their “depressing” workspace with the hashtag #SadDesk. The saddest workspaces were posted on Wired’s website. Small, crowded and lacking natural light, the cubicles in the article look awfully familiar.     Many Americans spend a large amount of time in the office. Some find themselves in a cubicle or private office with no windows or access to natural light.  The fortunate few are lucky … Continue reading
