Emerald Coast inspired table

This table speaks for itself…. it’s  made of Volcanic lava, giving it the dynamic and natural beauty and strength of its namesake. It is utterly weatherproof, and able to withstand extreme heat and cold, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor with handsome sophistication. And when I tell you that pictures don’t do it justice– it’s even more stunning in person. It is available in round and rectangular tables, as well as cocktail and console table sizes. The handcrafted stone is baked at several hundred degrees to diamond-like solidity. This emerald coast- inspired colorway evokes turquoise blues, liquid azure hues, and a sense of dappled light glinting off ocean waves… the perfect and durable table to be used inside or out!

Watercolor, Florida Before and After

I love a good before and after, but Y’ALL.. this one takes the cake! Imagine a house full of primary colors including bold reds and metallic golds. Oh, and pea green painted walls– yep! My latest project was a vacation home in Watercolor, Florida for a single man who wanted the perfect vacation spot for his family to enjoy. Oh, AND did I mention the vast  majority of  it was done in 4 weeks!?!!? That’s right– a full remodel in one month; from cabinets to countertops, all lighting and a fresh coat of paint. Needless to say,  I was on super-speed the entire month of April to get this one done!  It’s been such a fun project with such an amazing transformation– one of my favorites to date that I enjoyed working on with Lovelace Interiors designer, Brooks Logan.  Enjoy these before and afters!

SpotLIGHT on Lighting

Lighting is my FAVORITE! Well that and tile 🙂 We spotted lots of lighting in Highpoint from wood bead fixtures to cut crystal accents to cascading tiered fixtures that were over 10′ tall! Metals are still mixed and glass elements are BIG! Loving these fixtures from  the Currey and Co., Dovetail, and John Richard showrooms!

Spring Highpoint Trends, Vol. 3- Boho Pillows

Boho-inspired pillows were everywhere and go great with trend number 2- paper art! The texture, fringe, and deep colors were seen throughout market as shown on sofas and pillow displays.  Natural earth tones set the mood for textile inspired and heavily textured pillows. The colors were rich and blended with naturals to give an urban and ethnic feel. We like mixing these with solids to make a statement on any sofa, chair, or bed. Some of our favorites were from Callisto Home, Villa, Loloi, and V. Rugs and Home.

Spring Highpoint Trends, Vol. 2- Paper Art

For a design project, sometimes you need something that’s not a mirror and not another piece of art. Sometimes a space dictates something that’s non-subject matter related based on what else is already in the room– something with dimension and sculpture. Here’s the perfect solution– paper art! Lots of manufacturers are hopping on this trend, and we have LOTS heading to our showroom. Here are some of  our favorite new intros from market….

And here are some from our favorite vendors!

Spring Highpoint Trends, Vol. 1- Warm Woods

While it’s hard to pinpoint a certain “style” among the number of showrooms we visit in Highpoint, you begin to see trends emerge throughout the market that are the common factor of where the next phase of design is heading. This spring there were lots of things that stood out that I’ll highlight in future posts, but one major unifying look was the use of wood and natural materials in furniture finishes. Although it will always be around in our area, the grey-ish tones are slowly taking a backseat to more dark warm woods and natural brown finishes. We loved the modern lines and chunky rustic woods that dominated showrooms across the board.  Take a look at some of these pieces that were our favorites!
