Out There

For the outdoor living areas of this Palm Springs home, the retro elegant Canasta line by Patricia Urquiola (B+B Italia), seemed like the quintessential solution.   With it's 70's cool silhouettes, inspired (scaled up) adaptation of Vienna Straw and groovy needlework pillows, it perfectly fits the playbill.  A fresh modern approach with a vintage feel, and no comfort spared.  Umbrellas by Tucci, fire bowl Solus Decor and Trina Turk  pool towels.  
Our client is the uber glamorous writer and style maven, Jacquie Somerville.  Jacquie's creeds include, living life to the fullest and definitely getting out there.   (jacquiesomerville.com). We've had an awesome time this week completing her happening resort home.  The eclectic interiors, installation photos will follow shortly.

Material Matters

The application of natural marble material to interior surfaces gives a strong sense of permanence, and each application is as individual as the stone it was quarried from.  The inner beauty of marble is a continual source of wonder.  Once cut from the earth each veneer is a one of a kind 'work of art'.        
When specifying stone we tend to opt for more sober selections, after all it's a (very) long term decision (could be a lifetime).  In addition it is imperative for us to individually select the slabs for every project, and equally, to engage the services of an expert fabricator/installer.  If you're building for keeps, god really should be in the details.
