Updating your fireplace and surround can completely change the style of a room. The first in our fireplace update series is one of the most dramatic we have completed.
Our clients are most comfortable living in a modern home. So, when they purchased a traditional style home, one of the first steps was to install wide plank, dark hardwood floors on the main and upper levels, paint the handrail and balusters, and install new stairs. Despite these changes, the traditional brown brick fireplace was the first design element visible as soon as you walked into the home.
The SDI design team is currently working on a home gym and outdoor living area for our return clients who live in Broadlands.
It's hard to believe that half of 2020 is already over. Many of us are ready or have started to implement a few changes after the unexpected time at home. No one could have predicted that we would be working from home, managing school from home, preparing and eating meals from home every day since March. It's safe to say that our homes have been put to the test. How did yours fare?
New Year’s Eve feels like it was just yesterday. The SDI team was excited to begin the new year working with many new and returning clients on interior design and custom remodeling projects. January and February went by quickly and then suddenly in mid-March we were all facing the coronavirus pandemic.
Three years ago we had the pleasure of working with a family who were building a custom home in Falls Church. They contacted SDI for assistance selecting all of their finish selections for the entire home. For the kitchen and bathrooms, this included tile design, cabinet colors and lighting. Paint and lighting selections were made throughout the rest of their home. Other services we provided included creating floor layouts for the family room. This was critical so that the location of floor outlets could be determined. SDI attended selection meetings, contractor meetings, and construction walk-throughs to ensure that everything came together as planned.
A charming Airbnb, favorite restaurant, cozy coffee house, or a piece of artwork can all serve as design inspiration for your decor. How wonderful would it be to bring the colors, patterns, shapes, fabrics, or textures of those beloved places or things into your own home?
Signature Design Interiors enjoyed transforming this family’s traditional basement into a modern family space for watching sports and movies that could also double as the perfect setting for entertaining friends and guests. Multiple comfortable seating areas were needed and a complete update to all the finishes, from top to bottom, was required.
It’s that time again when color experts are announcing their top color selections for the coming year. Earlier this Fall, we reported Sherwin William’s pick of Poised Taupe a combination of earthy brown and conservative gray. Recently we learned that Benjamin Moore and PPG Pittsburg Paints both chose shades of purple for their Color of the Year, Shadow and Violet Verbena respectively. The two are very different, though both firms noted their decision was based on their hue’s ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia.
