Spring Bedroom

Happy Thursday! I dont know about where you are, but in Nashville, SPRING has SPRUNG!! the flowers are up and we have had a few days over 80 degrees!!

Every year, when the seasons change I get the itch for change in my house. My clients feel it too, and Spring is always the time of year that we all are ready to kick into high gear and start creating again!

I am personally ready to change my entire bedroom and add some brights ( Hello Spring Bedroom, Goodbye winter bedroom) . Right now I have dark teal walls and a brown polka dot Duvet. Its time for an upgrade! I wanted to share a few VERY inexpensive options that are KILLER!!!

Take a look!!

Michael Graves

Yesterday afternoon, The design industry lost a great Creative/intuitive and brilliant Architect, Designer and teacher: Michael Graves.

Known among his clients and colleagues as A connected creative, whose approach to making design humanistic, changed the way a lot of other industry leaders, viewed the connection between Design and Living.  If you aren’t part of the design community, you may recognize the name MICHAEL GRAVES as a well known product designer for large brands such as Target, Alessi, Kimberly-Clark, Delta and more.

Reading the Philosophy behind the Michael Graves mega firm, warms my heart and just reminds me that connection is THE reason I got into Interior Design in the first place.

“By looking at every design opportunity aesthetically, empathetically and economically, MGA&D achieves transformative results for our clients. Focusing on the individual, we humanize design.”

I am so moved by his sensitive architecture, and his design with meaning ( near and dear to my heart!) one of his great projects is the Wounded Warrior project, housing. Take a moment to watch this excerpt from 2012 PBS special ” Michael Graves, Grand Tour” its only 9 minutes and well worth it.

There is no doubt that the man, Michael Graves will be deeply missed by his friends, his family, his clients and his colleagues, but what a blessing that those of us who respect and honor his work, can at anytime take a look in design history, and re-connect with the important role this man played, in shaping Architecture and transformative design to what it is today.

Rest In Peace Michael Graves, Thank you for sharing your ideas with the world!
