Featured on Designer Spotlight Discern Living

We have been featured on the "DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT" series by Discern Living which is a one stop destination for Home Decor and Interior Design. Absolutely ecstatic with this feature where we share with you our heritage design practices, favorite museums and the designers we admire the most. A special Thank you to Priyanka Badlani and the Discern Living Team for this feature on their site. Here is an excerpt from the article and you can view the complete interview HERE.

What heritage design principle do you carry along in your current practice? 

When we design or decorate homes, we often use vintage elements to bring character and a bit of history to a room. Sometimes, the client will show us an exquisite bowl that belonged to her grandmother and we will find a way to integrate it into the grand plan. At the Fenwick Residence, for example, we salvaged the client's old hardwood floor boards and turned them into the counter top for her home bar. This way, the clients can still hold on to memories that are sentimental to them. Other times, we visit antique markets at Brimfield and Aberfoyle to find furniture, lighting, and accessories that fit the period of the home, and the overall design scheme. 

When designing a room, what is the most important factor that you like to keep in mind?

The most important factor when designing a room is telling the client's story, likes and interests through the ART. At the Fenwick Residence, our client's love for gardening was brought into the living room, through vintage botanical plates that we framed and mounted. At the Berryman Residence, we mounted a series of macro black and white photographs to display the family's love for sports and music. Rather than just putting up a pretty painting we will take it one step further and curate the displays to show off the client's personality and dreams.
