The 18 Top Interior Design Trends for 2018: Velvet is BACK!

December 18th, 2017 Posted by client news, Design, Fashion, Featured, general interest, press release No Comment yet
<<< Did you hear the news?? VELVET is back!!!  For those of you who are obsessed with the cozy, luxurious fabric – 2018 is off to a great start as velvet is topping lists of  trends for the New Year.  Along with velvet — and bold, rich colors — prepare to see geometric everything: pillows, rugs, wallpaper, and everything in between. I’m also super excited about the return to rich textures, multi-layered spaces and the combining of design styles: French plus a little Country with some Eclectic sprinkled in? Yes please!  And as someone who rearranges her furniture on a monthly basis because I get bored easily, mixing and matching are a necessity for me, regardless of whether it’s en vogue at the moment.

Getting Hitched? Better Get a #Hashtag!

April 7th, 2014 Posted by Design, general interest No Comment yet

Brendi1By Brendi Rawlin

According to The Cut, New York Magazine’s online source for provocative women’s issues, the trendsetting and always-in-fashion W hotel is now offering couples a social media concierge service for their wedding (yep, that’s right). For $3,000, the W’s Social Media Wedding Concierge will document the blessed “I Dos” through live tweets, Vine videos and flattering Instagram filters, all the while, encouraging guests to use the couples’ hashtag; i.e., #nelsonsnuptuals #wilsonswedding or the clever #2ndtimesacharm.

Can you imagine the concierge frantically running around reminding guests not to post an Instagram snapshot of the happy couple without using the $3,000 designated hashtag? Or what about damage control for the not-so-glamorous but all-too-common bloopers and blunders like the maid-of-honor tripping on the bride’s train? Does the concierge race around the reception hall gathering and checking phones to make sure the trippy train or the best man’s slurred toast doesn’t go viral?

And of course, keep in mind that while the wedding itself might be a private event, your public hashtag means anyone can access and post using it – yes, including your list of high school frenemies, all of your exes, and everyone else who didn’t make the guest list.

But whether you think this is a great idea or one that make you spontaneously palmface, one thing is certain, marriages lasts 25, 5 or even 55 years, but a tweet lasts forever.

[The W’s #hashtag concierge service is only available through December 31, 2014, so act fast!]

How Instagram Took Over Fashion Week

March 11th, 2014 Posted by Design, general interest No Comment yet

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week used to be only for the eyes of the elite. Major celebrities, socialites, and magazine editors would descend on New York to get first-looks at what designers had in store for the upcoming season. The general public would have to wait six months for the looks to hit newsstands before they would even get a glimpse of the runway looks. But then the internet happened and what used to live only in the glossies, exploded online! Now with their polished fingers, the fashion elite can instantly post snapped Instragram shots of the shows as they are happening in real time for all digital eyes to see. It’s as if everybody has a front row seat! And, this year, Instagram made its biggest showing. Click the link to check out the great video posted by Racked :How Instagram Took Over Fashion Week

Client News: Small Powder Room Wins Big

February 10th, 2014 Posted by client news, Design No Comment yet

Congratulations to client Jackson Design and Remodeling for bringing home “Best Powder Bath” and “Best Bath” overall at the 2014 NKBA awards ceremony held this week in Las Vegas.  JDR Senior Designer Sol Quintana Wagoner designed the award-winning powder bathroom that featured a stunning onyx sink with gold fixtures. At just 37 square feet, the Asian-inspired small bath beat out the best master baths and spa-like retreats from across the nation, showing that great design comes in all shapes and sizes.  A highlight of the win was getting to mix and mingle with design royalty like HGTV’s David Bromstead and Bravo TV’s Martyn Lawrence Bullard.

Congrats to Sol and the entire JDR team!!
