The Future of Design

Design comes in all shapes and sizes and here is a digital design that we think is awe inspiring.  MGM is set to open its doors for an integrated resort based in Macau, China.  It will be a multi – dimensional sensory experiences and innovative in every way.

“Soon to become Macau’s most innovative integrated resort, offering never-been-seen-before experiences for guests, Spectacle is the epicenter of entertainment at MGM COTAI. Located at the heart of the resort, Spectacle is over 4-stories high, spanning the length of a soccer field. It is a meticulously engineered column-free long-span diagrid structure. The space will seem to be alive, continually evolving and responding to changing conditions such as visitor behaviors, weather, time of day or season, which will provide an immersive, multi-dimensional sensory experience.”

The future of digital design is here thanks to Obscura Digital, the brilliant designers on this project.

Project: Deer Lake Beach

The Hunter Douglas Silhouette Window Shade has been around for over 25 years and for good reason!   It turns harsh glare into beautiful, ambient light.  Lighting control in a room is the main function of any window treatment and the Silhouette does is beautifully.   The shade features soft, adjustable S-shaped vanes between two sheer fabrics.   With a simple tilt the shade can diffuse fierce ultra violet rays and instead allow the light to create a lovely glow within your room.  Silhouettes, even while the vanes are open, can filter out up to 88% of the sun’s harmful rays.  Your furniture will thank you!

Our recent Deer Lake project in Seagrove Beach was a custom build on the Gulf of Mexico.  The home features Silhouettes throughout creating a beautiful and cohesive design feel.  Take a look…

Maison&Objet (Home & Object)

The world looks to Paris for inspiration in all areas and Maison&Objet held in Paris is a venue where forward thinking flows.  It is the leading home decor fair for luxury interior design, architecture, and lifestyle items.  It’s considered a “lifestyle” show because of the all-encompassing range of product offerings.  Decoration, furniture, textiles, children, tableware…a playground for anyone with a love of finely made goods.  Each year the trade show celebrates designers and offers lecture series with international experts.  Maison&Objet features the path that the future of window dressing is taking, and we love browsing the items on show.

First, Grey Bohemian draperies with yellow banding and loose fringe – great for a beach cottage.

And as we said, color is back and these electric sheer macramé draperies would make for a fun addition.

Simple sheers of natural fabrics from a Swedish company…proving that good design is timeless.
