The Reception Area: Your Company’s Most Important Space

    In office design, the reception area is one of the most important spaces.   Experts say that in many ways, your reception area works as your business card. When visitors walk through your doors, there should be an instant impression made in regards to who you are as a company. Guests should be able to grasp almost immediately the brand of your business, in addition to what your business does.

And, first impressions oftentimes last with us for a long time. … Continue reading

Jump into Fall: Interiors Inspiration Palette

      After we completed our inspiration palette for summer and the leaves began to change with cooling temperatures, our design team started collecting materials for our fall palette, which is warm, earthy and textural. Not familiar with our seasonal palette projects? Our goal is to embody the essence of each current season while utilizing various materials that are used in interior design.   With the temperatures and amount of daylight dropping rapidly, many people turn inward during the fall. The comfort that sweaters, soft blankets and hot drinks bring is soothing with winter gradually approaching. We brought in cozy fabrics, like velvet and felt to capture this need to stay warm with transitioning weather. We also took … Continue reading
