Summer Sizzle in Fritz Porter's Atelier

So...it has been one whirlwind of a summer.  While we are getting our new Charleston design office and Belle&Burl settled in to their new spaces we decided to add a little more excitement to our summer!

Partnering with Roderick Coles of The Curious Orange Store we tackled one of the design industry's hottest new destinations Fritz Porter's Atelier space.  Take a look at our labor or love and check some fun photos from our launch party.  A huge thank you to Kate Thornton for her beautiful images.

 

In love with the way our custom Donghia shades look on the killer midcentury lucite lamps....

Concrete studies by Roderick Coles are the perfect quad for any wall....

Our Gallery Wall installation is calm, cool and collected....

My favorite pair of lamps EVER.... Italian and midcentury - the perfect combination.

Abby Kasonik's gorgeous painting flanked by Juan Lamarca's  incredible photography takes my breath away...

Thank you to Harvest Catering for the perfect summer drinks and delectable hors d'oeuvres.

Belle&Burl's Hampstead table in Black Walnut is a must see!

One of the best things I have ever tasted...Harvest Catering's Scallop Ceviche and Watermelon Gazpacho..

Loved seeing the amazing crew from Fine Rugs of Charleston and Terry Stephenson of Juxtaposition Home & Garden

More lovelies from Harvest Catering .....

Fix it and Finish it Episode: More Storage Please

On our "More Storeage Please" Episode of Fix it and Finish it with Antonio Sabato Jr we help a family revamp their family room/playroom.  This was a tough space because it is a combination family room/play room with absolutely no storage.  For a family with young children storage is a must!

 

 

We pulled out the OLD carpet and linoleum flooring and replaced it with beautiful new hardwood floors.  We then painted all the walls a beautiful slate blue and added wallpaper in the playroom with a dark navy paint below the chair rail to anchor the pattern.

  

 

We added custom window seats in the family room and playroom to add more seating and hidden storeage.

 

 

We used a stain resistant carpet for the heavy traffic the family room receives and to make it more attractive we notched out the corners to give the carpet some interest in the room.

 

 

The desk we chose for Jill has enough surface area on top for her to do her DIY projects but small enough to not be too cumbersome in the room.

 

We made the playroom room "fun" but sophisticated so it wasn't an eye sore from the family room.

 

John Morris' original spirographs add the perfect punch of color and guess what?  They will soon be available for sale on our webstore!  

 

Don't miss our next episode of Fix it and Finish it 4/27 where we take an useable sunroom and make it the go to room in the family's house!
