Color plays a huge role in how we perceive things in our everyday lives. Color also dramatically affects one’s feelings, and emotions. Different colors produce different emotional responses in our brain, creating specific feelings in a space. Color sets the tone of a space, having a huge effect on one’s mood, especially in a home setting.
We are very tired but very inspired this week because we just got back from High Point Market! For those of you who aren’t familiar with High Point Market, it’s basically Disneyland for interior designers. Trade vendors from all over the globe come to High Point to show us their latest and greatest collections for furniture, lighting, textiles, and decor. It’s the biggest home furnishing trade show in the world!
This year I had the incredible opportunity of being a High Point Market Style Spotter, which means that I get to ‘spot’ the top styles and trends at market. If you want to find out my top picks, join me and the Style Spotter’s team for Style Spotters LIVE! on Wednesday, June 30th at 2pm ET – you can register for the event here! Until then, I’ll share a few of my favorite finds and trends that I saw at market this Spring.
The kitchen, dining room, and living room tend to be the hub of the home; the place that everyone gathers and spends quality time together. It is essential that these spaces have flow and function to fit the homeowners needs. For example, you’re cooking in the kitchen and also want to watch your family’s favorite show with them while they sit in the living room, or keep an eye on your kid while they do homework at the dining table. Modern homes have shifted away from the traditional layout full of walls and nooks to meet the needs of homeowners; by creating an open concept living layout, combining the kitchen, dining, and living room as one cohesive space.
At BANDD DESIGN, I am always tinkering with our services, experiences, and overall vision. I knew at the end of 2020, there were some holes in our current service offerings that were stopping us from a more robust client experience.
After thinking about what all we could bring to the table for our clients, we’ve developed two new services to our portfolio.
Since the Covid pandemic hit last March, just about everything in the home industry has changed; from decorating to buying. Everyone was stuck inside their homes for a good chunk of time, and we all took a good look at our living situations; realizing that we want to change some things up and really invest in making our homes a beautiful, functional space to live in.
