For a truly customized look, you simply can’t go wrong with tile. When tiling, you can really splurge on something special. Whether you go with stone, glass, ceramic, cement, or porcelain, tile allows for so much creativity. The choices today for stunning tiles are nearly endless, but I really love the idea of using bold, graphic tiles for an unforgettable look.
I like tiles with big geometric patterns. Great tiles aren’t just for the floor. Tile makes a fantastic backdrop in nearly any room — it doesn’t have to remain in the bathroom. Bold tiles can be used to create accents customized with a range of different colors. The possibilities are endless! A custom tile design can really evoke someone’s personality — playful, colorful, and vibrant.
Some of my favorite patterns have a Marrakech or Turkish kind of feeling to them. Many have Moorish-inspired patterns that evoke a history even when updated with colors for today.
Custom pillows are a need in a room.
Custom pillows are a need in a room. The moment someone wants to take them out of a design, my heart starts to palpitate. Pillows are the icing on a cake, finishing a sofa or chair and pulling the room together. I actually feel unsettled if custom pillows aren’t part of a design.
Additional details such as the edging or embellishments provide further ways to individualize each pillow. They don’t have to all match each other, the upholstery, the window treatments, and the rugs. Pillows let you mix things up, soften an area, or influence the mood of a room. Here are some custom pillows I’ve designed for clients, each one designed specifically for a certain space.
The metallic luster of gold is something I think of as a texture, more of an accent than an overall color.
The metallic luster of gold is something I think of as a texture, more of an accent than an overall color. In a lamp or light fixture, gold tea leaf on a ceiling, gold brings a really beautiful, monochromatic bit of glam to a room. Gold is a warm, reflective way to jazz up a space and my particular choice for jewelry!
