  • Utilizing Concept Boards

    top-interior-design-company-w320-o

    One of the most difficult parts of interior design, especially for the client, is envisioning what a space is going to look like at the end. Showing clients a board helps them visualize their ideas, it helps them and myself mix and match design elements and remove/add ideas. The concept board is a great way to explore the design and lay out my inspiration in a comprehensible way. Studio 9 specifies different options of furnishings all well coordinated no matter what the client selects, forming a unique tailored design...

    Thinking of decorating a small space in your house or giving your small apartment a make over? Small spaces can be a challenge to decorate but if you dare to be bold, then you will see the potential that your small space has. When looking at paint colors you have to be careful to not chose the wrong color because it can make the room feel claustrophobic, or dark.

  • Happy Memorial Day!

    top-interior-design-company-w320-o

    On this day, Studio 9 and my self would like to honor Americans who have died in service to their county. Although Memorial day is an excellent occasion for a backyard barbecue or a chance to travel, we must not forget the true spirit of this holiday. This day is not a somber one, we reflect on the servicemen and women who have perished protecting the many freedoms that Americans enjoy.

  • Malibu Revival Tile

    top-interior-design-company-w320-o

    Malibu tile is a type of ceramic tile, whose inspiration came from the tiles that were produced at Malibu Potteries in Malibu, California, during the later half of the 1920s. These tiles reflect a style of design that is referred to as Hispano-Moresque or Arabesque showing bright contrasting glaze colors often in geometric patterns that are reminiscent of tiles produced many centuries ago in the Near and Middle East, North Africa and southern Spain.

  • Lighting in Full Effect

    top-interior-design-company-w320-o

    Lighting can affect the mood of a room. I’ve heard people say how they feel happier and more energized during bright sunny days of spring and summer, and feel sad and lethargic during the dark nights of winter. Lighting design is broken down into three kinds of illumination: general lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. You can mix all three types to achieve decorative lighting

  • Fashionista

    top-interior-design-company-w320-o

    Happy Thursday! One of my recent project was for a client in her early 20’s who wanted her room to have a smooth transition into “adult hood.” She wanted to make sure that her bedroom was comfortable for sleeping, having a few friends over to hang out, for studying, and still have enough space to keep clutter away. The color palette selected for this bedroom was black, champagne, cool toned and warm toned grays for her room decor.
