The Poppy Armoire from Selamat is the mixed material piece of our dreams. Cool elements of lacquer and metal have been combined with warm wood and woven cane – taking this piece to a whole new level! Not only are the inlaid cane and brass designed to mimic the poppies of the English countryside, this functional piece doubles as a work of art.

Shinrin-Yoku is a Japanese concept that most closely translates to “a forest bath.” To me, this means slowing down and connecting with nature. Walking through the woods, noticing the smells, textures, colors, and sounds provides an opportunity to improve my health, both mentally and physically. I also notice that my creativity and curiosity expands during and after a forest bath.

Sometimes you just want a spot to steal away and lose yourself in a good book. Such was the case for our client in Atlanta’s historic Druid Hills neighborhood. The upstairs landing was the perfect spot for a cozy reading nook, complete with a custom built-in for her collection of books. A mid century chair and ottoman atop a colorful sari silk rug inspired our client to arrange her books by color, creating a cheerful rainbow effect.

We love duality in design. The soft, colorful border of the Martha mirror paired with orbital lines creates a balance of ethereal whimsy and modern geometry. What’s more, Covi & Puccioni’s Factory Italiana handmade products are created in a centuries-old Murano glass chandelier factory in Italy. Modern furnishings + historic roots = WOW YES!!!

Need We Say More: Stunning Wet Room Tile

By Melody Richardson

We have all been fawning over this gorgeous wet room, featured by Domino Magazine, from the moment we laid eyes on it. The way the designer pulled the tile from the floor onto the accent wall, and even brought it up to create a feature on the ceiling, is such an inspiration. We are so looking forward to trying out this technique in a powder room, laundry, or perhaps even a mud room!
