Seven Trends March 2019

By March 25, 2019 Uncategorized

Winter’s ending, and we couldn’t be happier. The focus now turns away from dark and towards light, new, bright, and fresh design inspiration. This month, we ask for two things. Firstly, if you like our trends, please share them with others who will also appreciate them. Secondly, if you know anyone who is looking for high end residential interior design, send them our way. Our boutique firm is growing, and we’re excited to take on new projects this Spring.

Aequill Candles

Born in London, these candles are focused on wellness and inspiration. Not only do they smell incredibly fresh, they also burn for a long time and brighten any room (even when not lit). Our favorite, the grapefruit and vetiver, starts at £24. Pairs perfectly with a spark lighter from Amazon.

Joanna Gaines Paint

Joanna Gaines is expanding her repertoire beyond shiplap into tons of products, from books to clocks and her own line at Target. Now, she’s taking on paint with her new Magnolia Home Paint Collection. We love that the colors are curated and perfectly paired so there’s limited guesswork needed.

Athena Calderone

We have been following Athena Calderone’s blog and Instagram for quite some time and we got to meet her at an event this month. We must say–we’re even more obsessed because she is as stylish as she is kind. Her blog, called EyeSwoon, should be a destination for anyone with an eye for the finer things in life, from food to fashion and home design. What we love the most about Athena is that her finds are sometimes on the pricier side but many other times very affordable, and that is where a good eye really stands out. (Image via eye-swoon.com/Johnny Miller)

Casa Perfect by The Future Perfect

The Future Perfect is, well, perfect. The showroom in NoHo is one of our go-to spots for most projects but the space is rather small and not much of their product is shown. Saturday, March 9th, they hosted an event for the opening of Casa Perfect. We were unsure what to expect. The invitation said formal attire suggested. We dressed in our nicest suits and headed to the event in the West Village. Much to our delight, it was an incredible five-story townhouse designed by one of our favorite architects, David Chipperfield. The townhouse is centered around an impressive English oak staircase which acts as the perfect backdrop for the curated collection of TFP. Check out the photo gallery in AD to see the installation and make sure you visit this beautiful showroom. (Image via Vogue.com/Douglas Friedman)

Prarie Residence by Rene Gonzalez

Netflix show The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes captivated us for an entire weekend. But it was a home, known as Prairie Residence in Miami Beach, that stole our heart. The perfectly open-air design was dreamt up by architect Rene Gonzalez (who’s working on a new wing of the Standard Hotel Miami Beach). Watch the show, then watch out for René Gonzalez as he changes Miami’s architecture. (Image via renegonzalezarchitect.com)

Ratio for Dada

Vincent Van Duysen’s furniture designs have become a topic of conversation with quite a few clients lately and his coffee table book attends most of our presentations. The Radio for Dada counter, in particular, has come up on multiple occasions. A piece like this has a warmth from natural materials but also fits a range of design styles, from industrial to organic modern. (Image via vincentvanduysen.com)

“Studio 54” by Ian Schrager

Coffee table books are one of the most integral elements of any good design. Ian Schrager’s latest book, Studio 54, is a great addition to any collection. Curated by Schrager himself, the book narrates the insanity that was Studio 54, weaving the story of the people, the design, and the performance into a perfect time capsule. Buy it on Amazon or even better at Rizzoli(Image via rizzoliusa.com)
