Everything is always bigger in New York City. From the Time Square light show to the sky scrapping towers that surround downtown Manhattan - New Yorkers know how to live in style. Our team was recently approached by a NYC client to create an entertainment center, so we decided on this treatment for the TV set. What better way to view your favorite shows and movies than on a large projection screen right? And when your done the screen just rolls up by the click of a button. Wellbuilt to suit needs of a city dweller looking to relax after a hard days work.
Our team made it to an event over at Dinosaur Designs in Soho. Based out of Australia, this chic brand carries wonderfully crafted items for both interiors and personal accessories. Think exotic gems and modern geometric shapes with a twist and you have the antidote for this charming brand rooted in the simplicity of natural aesthetics. Drop on in at 211 Elizabeth Street for the full experience.
Here's a Los Angeles Times blurb on our talented California designer Corey Gash:
Where many see junk, Corey Gash envisions design possibilities. The window display artist convinced his family to leave its comfortable, two-bedroom town house in Orange last year for a run-down barn in Costa Mesa that once housed chickens and, later, a boat-building operation. “The first time I saw it, I thought it was an amazing space with great bones. I’d always wanted to live in a barn,” says Gash, who has fond childhood memories of feeding the chickens during summer vacations at his aunt’s farm in Colorado. Partner Krista Wallace wasn’t as enthusiastic. “At first I thought, ‘No way. I couldn’t live there,’ ” she says. “The place was a shambles — filled with old wood and spiders. There wasn’t a bathroom — just an outdoor shower — and I had just found out that I was pregnant.” Now, repurposed materials and furnishings give the remodeled 700-square-foot home a loft-like openness and a soulful style. Here, the entrance wall is composed of wood reclaimed from a church roof.
"Rooms are albums that provoke memories. What you decorate with should remind you of a street you walked down or an experience that made you happy"
This is about as far from its Dwell rap that modular housing can come: a 6,300-square-foot McMansion in the tony DC suburb of Bethesda, Md. Called Bradley Green Show Home, this LEED-certified prefab princess—”systems built construction,” as Sandy Spring Builders says—took four months to complete once the foundation was laid. That being said, it only took one day for the home to be set, with portions being stacked on each other like Legos. Blink and you’ll miss it.
