Not Your Typical Carpet Tile

I love this photo that I captured of the Shaw carpet “Horizontal Edge Tile” that we used on this project. Our flooring guy strayed away from your typical install methods and came up with this fun pattern that enhanced the design of the carpet tile. Commercial carpet is definitely getting up to speed with the trends and demands of designers who want bold patterns and fun colors.

WEHO restaurant scene has a new kid on the block thats here to stay!

WOW! Is the perfect opening word for this restaurant interior design and food review. Gracias Madre is a new vegan restaurant perfectly located on Melrose in West Hollywood. From the moment that I laid my eyes on the exterior I was eager to step foot inside to see more, and when I did I was not disappointed. The interior design of this restaurant is so amazing and simple. The designers did a great job at designing a Mexican style space with a modern facelift. What I loved the most about the space is the space planning. The amount of seating that the restaurant has is perfect! You are not awkwardly close to anyone and you can enjoy a conversation without having to shout or worry about others hearing you. The atmosphere was amazing and so was the staff. So how was the food you ask? Delicious! everything that we ordered was truly amazing putting meat to shame! We ordered the kale salad, taquitos, chips, and marinated mushrooms. With that said you must try this restaurant out at least once, add this restaurant to your buck list!

B.O.Y Polished Blog Awards 2013

As I was browsing through Interior Design’s Best of Year 2013 award winners yesterday I was shocked at some of the furnishings that were selected. Don’t get me wrong I’m pretty sure the craftsmanship and thought process behind the design(s) were perfectly executed, but some the final products were not visually convincing. It would be very interesting to see all the submittals and compare them to the top and final winners along with the judging guidelines. After browsing through my categories of interest I decided to do our very own Best of Year “Awards” minus the award(more of a recognition of design and craftsmanship). So without further ado here are our winners!

CHANGING SPACES

Moving furniture from one space to another can be dreadful, but seeing the result of the same furniture placed in a different layout was very exciting. The new units floor plan and finishes compliment the chic yet cozy furnishings much more than the previous unit. Breaking the rules and placing furnishings such as the dining furniture where it is not called out to be functioned way better! When looking for a place to live be creative and think outside of the box to make the space work for your furniture. (Image: setting up the space )
