Yellow Interiors

The power of yellow interiors can be a little daunting to some.   But if you can throw in some taupes or grays you can tame the intensity and the result is stunning and sophisticated!

Romantic Bedroom in Neutral & Gray Tones

A Romantic bedroom doesn’t have to be “girly” so fear not if you have a significant other who cringes at the term.  To create your romantic bedroom start with soft, easy bedding.  Then have a little fun with it.  Add modern elements, a little shimmer, some mercury or antique glass and hints of nostalgic vintage items.

Great Seating by MyFace

For current pricing and lead times, contact Jamie Kern, President of DTIC at jkern@designtheoryinteriors.com  

Sometimes a person or company comes along who reinterprets the norm and introduces us to something extraordinary in furniture & seating design, building products, lighting, technology.    As one with a passion for architectural and interior design, these people and products inspire me to break down the barriers of my imagination, encouraging me to grow as a designer so that my clients always receive the most value for their money.   I believe these are the people we celebrate and try to emulate.

So today it’s “Bottoms Up” to MyFace, a furniture and seating design & manufacturing firm based in Portugal.  MyFace has created a line of exceptional seating and tables that are modern and simply elegant at every angle.  The attention to detail is unrivaled and I find it hard not to stare!!

Good, Better Best: Colorful Outdoor Furniture

For designer pricing and lead times contact Jamie Kern at jkern@designtheoryinteriors.com

Want to add some dazzling color to your outdoor seating area?  You can do it on almost any budget.

One of my favorite newfound outdoor furniture lines is from Damian Velasquez and sold on Artfulhome.com.   This is a gorgeous, airy, sculptural chair made of stainless steel and powder coated in blue, orange and white.   It is sturdy with a modern shape and the perfect pitch to the back so you won’t feel too reclined or like you’re being pushed forward.

This is a splurge item at $2,500 per chair but if the price is a budget buster, keep scrolling………

Fermob is still one of my favorite outdoor lines.  Founded and manufactured in France, the Luxembourg collection feels like a garden cafe.  All of the pieces are made of lightweight aluminum and available in 24 vivid colors.  I’ve seen pricing range from $700 for the rocking chair to $400 for the dining chairs.   What you get for your money is furniture that is made from recycled and recyclable metals and powder coating products and techniques.  The paint is UV coated to maintain the vibrance of each color and each piece goes through a rigorous quality control inspection and is signed by the quality control inspector.  These pieces will last a lifetime and can be left outdoors, uncovered with confidence.

But if you’re like me, your tastes change with the wind so you may not need a lifetime piece.  Scroll on…….

So here’s my favorite alternative for any budget.  This is the outdoor Golf chair by Emu Americas.  Available with or without arms, it comes in 5 fun colors and  lands in the $120 price range.   A grouping of these chairs around a fire pit or a dining table makes for great impact!  Emu is known for making furniture that will withstand public space use and abuse, so this chair will stand up famously to a residential outdoor space.

Room Design: English Countryside Reinvented

Room Design:  The mention of the English countryside evokes thoughts of big stone fireplaces, hot cider, aged leather, candle light and cuddling under a wool blanket while watching a rugby match.   It’s an enticing vacation spot where one can turn off the sounds of the outside world and spend time rejuvenating.  While I love the idea of all of those elements, I also want a more modern approach to my own home so I lean toward a fresh reinterpretation that allows for a synthesis of modern elements, nostalgic accents and plush upholstery and textures.
