Crash Course in Design – 5 Tips from the Master

Crash Course in Design

When it comes to creating luxurious, warm, welcoming homes, we’re no dummies. After nearly 30 years in business, our sole owner and head designer, Katherine Snedeker, has made an art form of partnering with clients to effortlessly turn their house into a home.

Katherine cultivates character interiors by layering textures and patterns. It’s not a cookie-cutter room when she’s on the job! Here are some of her key tips on how you can layer textures to do the same.

 

Textured Design

TEXTURE DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN COLOR

Just because you prefer a neutral color palette doesn’t mean you have to have boring interiors. In fact, a neutral colored room is the perfect place to add dimension. Unexpected textures make a room more engaging—like the back of the chair being tufted rather than the typical interior.

Play with Materials

PLAY WITH MATERIALS

Like a rolex watch, mixing metals is encouraged. Statement pieces are essential to creating a WOW factor. Simple, honest elements are timeless.

Add a New Layer

ADD A NEW LAYER FOR AN EASY UPDATE

Not ready to redo an entire room? No problem. Instantly update the feel of your room by artfully draping a patterned throw over an existing piece. By adding luxury pillows, the new layer will effortless add depth.

Variety of Fabrics

USE A VARIETY OF FABRICS

Sometimes it’s the fabric that has all the attraction. The warm layers create a feeling of welcome and invite you to cuddle up and relax.

Unique Accessories

UNIQUE ACCESSORIES CUSTOMIZE A LOOK

Unique accessories play an important role in building a luxurious room with dimension. By mixing a few once-in-a-lifetime items you’ve collected over the years, you can create a spectacular space.
