Design Inspiration for 2012
To start the year off with a bit of designed focused forward thinking, not so much as trends, but inspirational design to keep in mind as we head into 2014. Hopefully, these ideas will last longer than a calendar year and can be thoughtful ideas to incorporate into any architecture or design projects.
Dramatic Entrances: Make a statement with architecture, large scale doors, contrast, and a balance. Symmetrical tall potted plants make a great welcoming committee.
Go Bold: Graphics and pattern create visual interest.
Then graffiti the walls, a la Kelly Wearstler.
Color: Add lots of it!
And big art!
Really big art! Colorful, messy, and large!
Metal of Choice: Copper!
Dimensional Furniture: Pieces that aren't flat, but shaped, and create uniqueness.
And always thoughtful details: whether it's storage, cleanliness, or multi-purpose. Think of how your space is utilized and what surprising details can be created.
