Voila! Our studio looks like this now! It might not seem like a big deal to some, but it is a big deal to Traci and me. We ditched the rubber baseboard in lieu of hardwood and covered the concrete with this fab sisal from Stark thanks to Steve Showalter! A huge shout out to Bob Margies, of MHS Carpet Design for the expert installation of our carpet.
Designers run into obstacles with our own projects too. The sink in our bathroom, couldn’t be moved closer to the toilet (see photo above), so we ended up with a huge space between the two fixtures. Guess what? Turns out, this Jonathan Adler “Jacques” lucite and brass etagere fills the space perfectly! We are digging brass and have added a few more brass pieces to our collection.
We also have this beautiful vintage Henredon table with brass stag head base and glass top for our conference room table. Traci and I both fell in love with this at first glance. Thanks to Sarah from Matters of Style for finding such amazing pieces such as this table. If you don’t follow Sarah Fisher on Facebook or Instagram you should start immediately. She has an amazing eye for finding unique pieces. I also love her blog by the same name.
Our sample room is shaping up thanks to Impact Design Resources. We will have lines of fabrics, wallpapers and furniture that aren’t currently available in the Charlotte area, so we are excited about that. We have tons for our beautiful fabrics and wallpapers!
I am in love with our kitchen area in the studio! The “Flair” tile backsplash from Ann Sacks is a showstopper! It is part of the Ann Sacks Scribe collection. Who doesn’t love a marble chevron? Chelsea Grey was the perfect color choice for the cabinets, which are from IMPACT Design Resources in Charlotte. The snazzy brass and lucite hardware is from Nest Studios ( this hardware been on both of our Pinterest boards for two years +) and the under the counter beverage center is from U-Line! Our studio situation is a good example of why U-Line is the leader in American under counter refrigerators and ice makers. U-linedoesn’t have to be vented from the rear, so it works in areas like ours where it was necessary to use a unit that vents from the front. Yay for U-Line! We love our new, fully stocked beverage center! The next housekeeping decision to make it is which coffee maker to purchase. I really wanted the Thermador built-in coffee system ,but since we couldn’t get it due to spacing issues, we are now thinking about the Nespresso Vertuo-Line. If you have any suggestions on coffee/espresso makers I’m all ears!
