A “Cool” Feeling Bath…

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Gray tones produce a feeling of coolness, especially when incorporated via marble or tile.  The guest bath pictured below is a prime example.  The gray marble, combined with the blue counter top and the mirrored vanity cabinet is refreshing.  We like that the theme is carried from the bedroom, as is seen in the mirror’s reflection of the blue drapes hanging there.  Another nice thing about this bath is that is that while it is cool, it is not cold.  If you would like to get this look, let Colby Interior Design get you there!

Eskayel – Wonderful Wallpaper.

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Shanan Campanaro has manipulated her watercolor and ink drawings into something amazing – wallpapers that look like art, because they come directly from original works, placed into patterns.  Campanaro graduated with her BFA from Central St. Martins in London in 2003.  From there, she developed an amazing studio practice, and has had support of many notable design groups, and is even a senior designer with Express.  Her idea for wallpaper came to her while re-designing her apartment in 2008.  Today, she has a broad line of beautiful and innovative collections.  ”To The Trade”small_feudal_facet_slate.jpg
