A Winter Retreat: Interiors Inspiration Palette

    With the year wrapping up, so is our yearlong inspiration palette project. 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. Materials include wallcovering, flooring, paint chips, upholstery fabric, tile and other finishes that are utilized in interiors projects. If you haven’t yet checked out our spring, summer, and fall inspiration palettes, take a look! This winter palette is easily our favorite. It incorporates crisp whites and cool greys for an airy, tone-on-tone look.   In the winter months, it’s almost as though the world feels more quiet. Some of us fully welcome the solitude … Continue reading

Foundations Project Results

  Since 1965, Foundations has been providing counseling services, foster care services, child therapy and marriage counseling to the Northeast Wisconsin community.

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.
