Hello Everybody!

There are four design trends you may want to follow if you plan a redesign of your space in 2017. Keep it simple. Bring in the light by using transparent materials. Cover your walls in bold art.  Add brass accents to make your space shine. Below, you will see some example of interior designs that follow these principles of simplicity, transparency and boldness. Read and get inspired!

And a bonus: Beauty Bakerie cosmetics store will open its first store in Westfield Mission Valley Mall, San Diego, this spring. You can find out how we merged the two apparently different notions of beauty and dessert into one colorful interior design of this store. 

Want to learn more about what we do?  You can always follow us on Facebook or see interior design news on our Blog.

Truly yours,
