Trend Observed at High Point Market – Fall 2011

Leave a comment

Houzz is a great interior design forum site to visit and see pictures of work by architects & interior designers . It also features articles by professionals about various design news, themes & trends . This article is about an accent color trend observed last month at the prestigious & renowned interior design market in High Point, North Carolina . The accent colors at the top of list were in the family of saturated deep purples spanning from shades of merlot to rich raspberry . I think these accent colors have universal appeal and will add pizzazz to any interior style .

D&M Designs ~ Award Winning Interior Design Video

Leave a comment

Some “Green” Design ideas & materials used in the Award Winning Home in the Summit County Parade of Homes 2009 ( 1.8 to 2.5 million dollar category) in which D&M Designs won 2 awards :

* Award of Excellence – Interior Design & Finishes

* Award of Excellence – Kitchen Design

Builders ; Paragon Builders & Developers, Breckenridge, Colorado

When Paragon enlisted our design services for their Parade Home project they stressed their dedication to using “green” design & materials as much as possible . Here are a few ways we accomplished that ;

* Re-using discarded ski lift cable in the hand rails & pickets .

* Using beetle killed pine for the exterior siding, interior wood ceiling tongue & groove and paneling on the kitchen bar wall & the Powder room wainscot paneling .

* Creatively putting to use many of the granite counter top scraps for benches & niches in the showers and an irregular shaped, chiseled edge counter top in the Powder Room.

You can see pictures of this home & these “green” ideas on our website ;

Approaching any interior project with a little attention to ” how can we be more green? ” does take a bit more effort & possibly expense, but we believe it is a worthwhile investment for our families, communities & our planet !
