{Miner} Details

 

"I want to live,

I want to give

I've been a miner for a heart of gold." - Neil Young

 

As designers, we are constantly searching for true artists that contribute to giving our clients more beautiful and unique spaces. Every so often, we come across one:

Katy Briscoe began her career in the jewelry industry in 1980, working part-time for a Fort Worth mom-and-pop shop. Later, Katy worked in the jewelry department of a major department store and then entered the world of high-dollar jewelry sales upon being hired by the internationally renowned Fred Joaillier of Paris.  With her love and extensive knowledge of the industry, she became one of Fred’s top-producers and was groomed for an assistant directorship -- the youngest and only female in that position at the time.

After her success at Fred, Katy was approached by a representative of David Webb of New York in 1985, where she furthered her knowledge of fine jewelry and gained insight into the preferences of the world's wealthiest clients.  Five years later Katy realized that she really wanted to create her own designs and left to establish her first home-based atelier called “Chinati the Jeweler”.

Grasping the fundamentals of the jewelry business was a rite of passage neither glamorous nor romantic, but with hard work and an unerring determination she set up her own full-service jewelry company in June of 1994. 

In 2010, Katy’s publicist proposed that it was time for the brand to have a new product line, and said “I think your bracelets would make the most amazing napkin rings”.  In that moment, Katy saw her stacks of bangles on dinnerware, and the idea for a gift collection was born. Soon afterwards, Katy partnered with a longtime friend to create Katy Briscoe Home. In 2014, they launched The Bangles Collection (American-made home accessories, featuring bone china with hand-painted gold and white bisque finishes). - katybriscoe.com

The simplistic beauty of white, Grecian china, joined with intricate, jewelry-inspired details, makes Katy Briscoe Home one of the most refined, yet exciting collections we've seen in a long time.

Transformative Style

“Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.” A. Clarkson

Can furnishings be life-changing? Yes, if they are produced by the house of Christopher Guy. Christopher Guy designs are a rare combination of elegance, invention and worldliness that reach true artisanship.

Christopher Guy Harrison is the Englishman who created it all. Born in Britain, raised in Spain and France and currently residing between Singapore, London, Los Angeles and New York, he has an abundance of influences. "My international background allows me to draw on inspiration from everything I experience around me, taking elements from different periods of history and transforming them into designs of what I hope are elegance and sophistication."

Most interestingly, Christopher designed and built a one million square foot workshop on the island, Java, in Indonesia, to accommodate the 1,400 carvers, woodcarvers and artisans that craft his designs. The complex is nothing less than spectacular, and the work that is produced there...masterful. Watch simple wood and stone transform into intricate style.

Altruistic Art

“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”

 -  John Bunyan

 

Artists relinquish pieces of themselves without reason for gaining anything in return; and art is simply shared for the joy of involvement with those who choose to interact with it.

Lourdes Sanchez is a brilliant painter and textile print designer who works in hand painted watercolor media.

In her words:

“Luli Sanchez is the name I use for my design work. My full name is Lourdes Sanchez, and Luli was a childhood nickname. I worked designing prints for the fashion industry in Manhattan for 18 years, until knowing that my heart would break if I showed up to work in the garment center one more day, I rented a teeny tiny workspace in NYC's East Village, a few blocks away from my teeny tiny apartment at the time, and basically painted nonstop and sold designs to designers of both fashion and home furnishings for 2 years straight. When I finally came up for air, I was thrilled to know I would never have to go back.

My work is still hand painted, in inks or watercolor. My objective with my designing has been to capture an organic and moody, yet optimistic spirit, and have designs out in the world that in their own small way may invoke a feeling that underneath it all, it is a benevolent universe.”

Functioning Formally


"Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union." - Frank Lloyd Wright

COUEF.

What is COUEF? COUEF is an acronym for: Chair, Ottoman, Upholstered, End Table and Function

Developed by designers Jamie Schachtel and Danielle Yucht, COUEF is an inventive line of functional accent furniture. Encompassing elegant shapes and practical usability, each piece is the ideal room accessory, going from easy, everyday staples to formal furnishings.

COUEF has developed the perfect union between form and function, reassuring us that Wright was...well...right. In the end, the two shall be one.

Be inspired...purposefully.

A Sip of Marsala

“Now and then it is a joy to have one's table red with wine and roses.”  -Oscar Wilde
 

"While PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, the captivating 2014 color of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered furniture." - pantone.com 

Best used as an accent color, enjoy a sip of Marsala in your décor. Cheers!

Merry Stylish

mer·ry    merē

adjective

  1. cheerful and lively

    synonym: without a care in the world

“I do not consider a room complete until it has the right balance of vintage and modern elements. Trends and whimsy are not a focus for me. I strive to create a feeling of timeless elegance and gracious living in soulful environments. Rooms should feel as though the furniture and art within them were collected over time and curated with a sense of personal history.” - Tommy Smythe, interior designer

Tommy’s contagious enthusiasm and fun loving approach to décor have made him an international design world favorite. Known for his unique mixture of fine, vintage, antique and modern furnishings, Tommy never lets it all feel too serious.  “If it's not fun, it's not worth doing!” And that's his final word on style.

Now, Tommy Smythe shows us how to maintain our personal style while decorating for the holidays. He creates a festive space with accents that are both elegant and edgy.

A few tips from Tommy:

Mix Traditional With Unexpected Elements

White slipper chairs with turned legs give this space a traditional feel, while the skull pillows keep it from becoming too formal.

Keep Holiday Items on the Edgy Side

The black and red feather wreath, mismatched plaids and animal skulls offer an offbeat approach.

Add DIY Items for a Personal Touch

Black frames with collected patches create a refined, curated look, while the custom red and black check mirror adds to the warmth of the room by the virtue of its handmade artistry.

My tip:

Have Fun

Enjoy the opportunity to play around with your décor. The holidays are temporary, so why not push the envelope a bit. It's a good time to express yourself.

Be inspired...and carefree with your style.

Uniquely yours,

Kimberly

Drawing Straws

"Behold the child, by nature's kindly law,

Pleas'd with a rattle, tickl'd with a straw" - Alexander Pope

 

Considered the quintessential traditional Finnish holiday decoration, himmeli are fascinating structures.

"In Finland, himmeli have been made for centuries, though folklorists are unclear when the tradition began. The word himmeli is believed to have derived from the German word for heaven (Himmel) which in turn derives from the Old Norse word himinn, variously translated as heaven or sky. Himmeli were traditionally hung over the table during the harvest festival to ensure a good harvest the following year – the more elaborate the himmeli, the more abundant the next year’s crop. 

Traditionally, himmeli are made from specially selected and prepared straw in an octahedron, an eight-sided polyhedron. The straws must be straight, clean and unblemished." - etsy

The fact that himmeli are still made in Finland (and similar mobiles known as pajaki in Poland) is a testament to the remnants of old agrarian traditions, and the fact that simple, minimalistic design is still significant, and more importantly, everlasting. Because, when everything else is broken down and stripped away, it is the simplest structure that remains. Even a straw, in the end, is quite beautiful, when seen in a new way.

A "Peak" Inside

 

“A window—it’s more entertaining than TV. Just ask a cat looking out, or a man looking in on a life he desires.” ― Jarod Kintz

I have long had a fascination with window displays. There is something incredibly delightful about the ability to visually tell a story within the confines of a small space. Enclosed in glass, they are a peek into another (nearly tangible) world, where the desire to 'step right in' becomes so strong that the viewer is able to escape for a brief moment. 

Upscale Canadian department store, Holt Renfrew, is known for its incredibly detailed holiday windows. Last year's "Northern Noël" was especially charming. Consisting of 11 endearing vignettes that captured holiday moments, the story began on the slopes and ended in a warm ski chalet. Inspired by vintage posters, one scene conveyed a lumberjack rescuing a woman wearing a long evening gown, while another comically depicted men attempting to wrap Christmas gifts and untangle lights. 

As I prepare to design holiday window displays for a 'sweet' local business, I am gaining insiration from Holt Renfrew's whimisical approach to merchandising, and their desire to mesmerize an audience.

Here's a glimpse inside the enchanting exhibit:

Unerring Composition

"Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life..." - The Verve 

If you were to ask about my favorite style of design, I would most likely answer according to my mood. The fact is, it changes. One moment it's austere contemporary, the next it's classic chic, followed by rich bohemian, and on and on. That is why I become enthralled with designers who masterfully combine various styles. In my opinion, they are the true maestros, conducting a blend of distinctive components into one harmonious masterpiece. 

"Eric Cohler is highly acclaimed for his distinguishing ability to fuse classical and contemporary elements. Dubbed 'The Mixmaster' by industry editors, Cohler’s interior spaces display layers of unusual texture, color and verve". - ericcohler.com

Take a peak inside the visual symphonies Cohler brilliantly composes:

Graceful Bend

 

"I was an oak, now I'm a willow, now I can bend" - Until it's Time for You to Go, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Lyricist 

Cultivated varieties of willow have been the material of choice in basketry for centuries. A strong and flexible material, the nature of willow to "bend" gives tightness and resilience to the finished product, allowing the basket maker to weave elegant, yet sturdy vessels. 

With their inherent ability to add warmth and sophistication, baskets have always been one of my favorite pieces of décor. Someone once told me that every room needs a touch of willow. In other words, a space does not feel inviting until a woven element has been placed. I have found much wisdom in that advice. If we think about it, there is nothing quite as hospitable. Gifts and goodies are traditionally presented in such (Little Red Riding Hood taught us that). We associate them with abundance and generosity, as well as comfort and contentment. 

My advice: If a room does not immediately welcome you, bend it back toward "cordial" with a touch of willow:

Live Lightheartedly

“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.” ― W.H. Auden

Nothing touches my heart quicker than laughter, and there are few things I adore more than design. So, when the two are combined, perfection is near. My best advice: Don't take your interior too seriously. A wink and a nod is always helpful to break the monotony, and a touch of whimsy can lighten the mood of any space. 

Over the years, I have admired many designs, but the ones with which I have fallen in love, were the ones that made me smile:

Loom of Life

 

"We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning." - Henry Ward Beecher

Life is an intricate pattern, and the weaving began with time. In my mind, the most fascinating of all the master craftspersons is a weaver. That is why when a textile rep came to visit us today, I found myself inspired by the story she had to tell, and the new collection she showed. Join me in learning a little more about this beautiful assemblage, and the many hands it takes to create it:

"India, an ancient country with a rich tradition of hand-woven textiles. India, a rapidly emerging global center for state-of-the-art fabric production. Both aspects drew the design team of Pollack textiles to visit the country and explore the possibilities first hand, and the Jaipur collection is the result. Four beautiful patterns - Deity, Priya, Shisha and Jaipur - distill their experience, incorporating time-intensive hand-weaving, embroidery and block-printing techniques, as well as the capabilities of modern high-speed looms. With patterns and colors that hint at the exotic, these designs are striking in their ability to bridge cultures and make dramatic statements in contemporary settings." - Pollack Associates

Ebb and Flow

“For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupery 

It is true, I have a love affair with design. As in any relationship, there is a natural ebb and flow. At times, my thoughts are consumed by what I love, I can think of nothing else. Creativity flows as naturally as the tide, and all is harmonious in my world. Other times, the well is dry and the struggle begins to fill the void. I question the process, the outcome and even my own abilities. Still, I come back each day and pour myself into my work, even when it feels like there is but barely a drop left. Over the years, I have learned that if I am patient and diligent, eventually inspiration will wash over me, and once again I am renewed. That is what brings me back, that one moment. Typically in the stillness, always with joy, I return to the fountainhead where my cup overflows.

Beyond Boundaries

"Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.” - Leonardo da Vinci

When I see design moving forward with fresh ideas, yet reaching back toward primitive crafts that have stood the test of time, distance and many skilled hands, I am reminded why I am passionate about what I do. At heart, designers are seekers, wayfarers and tellers of stories. We reach beyond boundaries and go to great lengths to create interesting narratives in our clients' spaces. If our jobs are done well, those spaces will feel evolved, well-traveled, yet firmly rooted in the past. 

Few seem to agree with this conviction more than the design team (my new soul mates) at The Citizenry. Discover the beauty of their labor, and share a piece of the adventure.

Copper Crush

"First kiss ever I took, like a page from a romance book, the sky opened and the earth shook, down on Copperline..."  - James Taylor

The infamous crush - a blessing and a curse - never easy, always exciting. It is perhaps one of the greatest emotions we can develop as it causes our interest to pique, imaginations to roam and hearts to flutter. 

My most recent obsession? Let's just say there's a new metal in town, and I have found myself swooning. 

Handsome and alluring, here's to the latest "object" of my desire: copper. You high-priced thief, you have stolen my heart.

Always Seeking

"I knew that look dear
Eyes always seeking..." - Hozier, Like Real People Do 

It is in the soul of a designer to constantly be seeking; a continuous quest for inspiration and influence, and the responsibility to be aware of the latest trends. 

We are excited to announce Sherwin-Williams' 2015 Color Forecast: Optimistic Odyssey   

image.jpg

I. Chrysalis:
Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, we’re poised for change. As modern life and technology rush at us, we seek an oasis where we can find balance, mindful living and tempo giusto (the “right time,” or the steady, regular beat of the heart).
We look to earth and sky for inspiration, finding raw beauty in striations and gently blurred hues and patterns. Artisans break the mold, creating objects that aren’t what they seem. Shapes are layered and deconstructed. In this moment, silence is the greatest luxury, and metamorphosis is the mother of invention.

image.jpg
image.jpg


II. Voyage:
“To boldly go where no man has gone before.” That phrase was fantasy when it was born during the Sputnik era. Today we’re living it. The sci-fi dreams of the past have become everyday reality — from space tourism to undersea resorts. No longer confined to our earthly plane, we look to the beyond and find colors that are supernatural and magical.
Unusual atmospheric events, including a decade-best aurora borealis and a rare sequence of “blood moons,” will keep our focus on the heavens in the months ahead.

image.jpg
image.jpg

III. Buoyant:
Happy days are here again! We’ve weathered the recession. Our revived good spirits echo the optimism that followed World War II, when GIs returned home from exotic locales. Like that era, we’re expressing ourselves with bright florals, but today, our fascination with the tropics runs deeper.
We’re exploring the secrets of the rainforest, applying the medicinal and cosmetic benefits of its botanical bounty. We’re looking to the natural world in other ways, too, incorporating green spaces into even dense urban environments — trusting in nature to keep our spirits bright.

image.jpg
image.jpg

IV. Unrestrained:
Life is a Carnival, and we’re eager to celebrate: from bold, ethnic-inspired colors, designs and crafts to the Bohemian lifestyle. But today’s wandering nomads aren’t starving artists — they’re fusing the carefree spirit of the gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set.
Artisans and purveyors of luxury goods are getting in the spirit, putting an irreverent spin on their work. South Africa and its colorful art scene exert a strong pull, while the 2016 Summer Olympics will rivet the world’s attention on Rio de Janeiro.

Living Lucidly

“…life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning...”

- Virginia Woolf

 

The glass house...one of the most intriguing structures ever designed. As creatures of humanity, it's in our instinct to hide the most vunerable parts of ourselves. So, why do some choose to live completely exposed? It's a beautiful mystery. 

Fascinating not for what they include, but for what they leave out, glass dwellings are meant to challenge nearly every conventional definition of domesticity. Pared down to the essentials, there is something intimidating to people about the restraint such an existence would demand. Still, the appeal of all that diligence, that precision is practically narcotic. 

I often dream of glass houses. Perhaps this gives insight into my subconscious, or maybe I just find beauty in simplicity. Either way, there is a part of me that knows deep down each of us longs to be seen and understood completely and that our lives are not meant to be hidden away, but lived in revelation and transparency.

Inked in Chinoiserie

chi·noi·se·rie

{SHēnˈwäzərē}

 

The palest ink is better than the best memory. - Chinese Proverb
 

What is chinoiserie? “In the 17th and 18th centuries, as tourists and traders ventured eastward, a fascination with all things Asian swept Europe. Inspired by travelers' sketchbooks and imported porcelain and lacquerware, designers layered their furniture, interiors and ceramics with fantastical Chinese imagery, resulting in the perennially popular style called chinoiserie.” - Elle Décor

Essentially, chinoiserie is a visual narration, a reenactment of history literally drawn out on furniture, wallpaper, prints and décor. Seen as exotic, chinoiserie has been sought after for centuries and is the quintessence of good design.

Even with the "palest ink", this classic motif will long have the ability to add layers of mystique and sophistication to any design...remaining inscribed in our memories.

The Right Fit

"If Cinderella's shoe was a perfect fit, why did it fall off?" - Anonymous 

What's the old saying about the cobbler's children? They go unshod? Yes, and the same can be true for a designer. Her abode is left "barefoot" while her client's is donned in glass slippers. 

My days are spent developing, curating and executing designs, but alas, my own plans for the perfect dwelling seemed to have fallen into the cinders. Not wanting them to be left behind, and knowing that a big day (moving day) was upon me, I picked them up, brushed them off and gave them new life. Not quite with the wave of a wand, but rather a bit of toil, borrowed time and endless drafts, they've been loaded into the carriage and sent on their way.

Adorned with incredible details, the quaint architecture of this new place has been a great source of inspiration. Gothic archways, inlaid wood floors, original plaster moldings and adorable niches were just a few of the traits that made me fall for its charms...and finally fit it with the right "pair of shoes." 

Be inspired...live what fits you.

Kimberly
