A Public Service Announcement from Our Contractor
You wouldn’t build a house without a foundation, would you?
If you’ve completed your bathroom renovation already, we don’t need to tell you that the most important step is the first one: PLANNING! Dicing into a full scale remodel without “laying the foundation,” inevitably leads to chaos, presenting itself in underestimated time frames and over budget projects. Answering a few basic questions about each aspect of your remodel BEFORE you get started can help reign in all of those issues. To that end, we’ve laid out a visual map with a few of the questions homeowners should address. And, if you’ve already answered all of these questions and completed your dream bathroom, pass this on to someone who hasn’t yet!

Many of us love Trina Turk’s clothing line. Today we are featuring her Designer collection for Schumacher Fabrics . This is the second line of indoor/outdoor fabrics that she has designed for Schumacher. We are so in love with her use of bold colors and patterns.
When you are designing outdoors, you can be brave and do some really fun things! Check out the beautiful spread of fabrics below in violets, red violets, reds and orange hues. This is such a beautiful and warm combination.
If you are looking for a cooler palette, you can try coordinating the patterns below! We love this combination of bold blue hues in the mix of the wave pattern, the chevron and the floral. Such a fun combination!
Another option for a cool, crisp Spring/Summer palette is the one shown below. If you are a fan of green and blue, then this one’s for you! We love the geometric pattern mixed with the more organic pattern and how well the colors coordinate between both fabrics.
We love this collection! To check out more, CLICK HERE!

Candice Olson did the honors of answering a few questions from her fans and the audience of Designers while speaking in Boston. I was lucky enough to get one of my questions answered. See the beginning of the interview below.
What is inspiring and informing your work in 2013? (Phyllis Harbinger)
Candice Olson: Its a real testament that we have shows airing that were filmed 12 years ago, and people would never know that it was 12 years ago. Design is an investment in time and money and it’s my job to make it the best investment for them, to make it timeless. Sure, I’ll use Pantone’s color of the year, I’ll inject that in small accessories, it was orange a few years ago. But what’s inspiring me, what I see in my client base, and in my own life is my kids.
Kids have changed the way I look at design. Now so much of what I focus on is how to have style and really live in that living room. Clients are asking to make the most of everything in their homes. Multi-functional, multi-purpose, clients are asking for that, whether its small spaces or trying to make the most out of spaces. I am moving away from more refined finishes. You will see softer metallic finishes in my fabric line, my wallpaper and furniture line. It’s halfway between silver and gold. We call it glint. It’s almost like the color of the Venetian plaster here. It gravitates instantly if you put a warmer metallic with it, it makes sense, it’s really forgiving, blending, softening, weathered, mixed in with contemporary shapes. I’ve been about that for a while now, I’m now seeing it come to the forefront, frankly because I have so many clients with dogs, kids, etc. who still want beauty that is livable and lasts.

The New York Botanical Garden Orchid Dinner is an event held once a year that follows the Orchid Show opening which we have attended in the past.
The Orchid Show is a fabulous display of orchids according to a specific design theme. Kravet put together a fabulous blog post reporting on the Orchid Dinner and Brunshwig and Fils participation in the event! We would like to share excerpts from Kravet’s Inspired Talk Blog below:
“Brunschwig & Fils had the honor of participating in the New York Botanical Garden Orchid Dinner, an annual event which precedes the opening of the Orchid Show, which is the largest show of its kind in the country. For this year’s show, 25 top New York designers, including B&F’s own Stephen Elrod, created a dramatic table and centerpiece based on the theme “Exotic Inspirations.” ”
“…For the tablecloth, Elrod chose Clouds, an embroidery also from Le Jardin Chinois. Clouds is a figured stripe reminiscent of the ombred lishui wave band embroidery traditionally placed above the hem of a Qing dragon robe. The centerpiece, a tree blooming with white orchids and red lanterns, hung in dramatic fashion over the table, creating a striking scene. “
