It's All in the Details

At Grace Blu, we invest a great deal of time and energy when it comes to sourcing unique pieces for our design projects. We literally search high and low for furnishings, lighting and accessories that will set your home apart from the rest. Part of our criteria when selecting vendors and resources is attention to detail. It’s amazing how even the most subtle nuance can catch your eye and make you appreciate something as simple as a chest of drawers just a little more than you normally might. As you’re thumbing through your favorite design magazine, do you ever ask yourself, “what is it about this room that has me so engaged?”. Well, it’s probably the simplest of things that make the space so special like the leather tabs on the cabinet, the nail head trim on the bench, the red silk exposed cord on the table lamp, or maybe it’s the contrast stitching on the sofa.

When designing a space we follow a consistent formula of color, contrast, texture, and sheen to create a palette that is energetic, inviting, and balanced. We love juxtaposing rustic wood textures with modern elements like glass or polished metal. Painted cabinetry is one of our favorite ways to incorporate bold color into our designs and a high gloss finish helps take it to the next level. We love to use wallpaper in unexpected ways like on the ceiling and in the interior backs of glass front cabinetry for a fun pop of pattern. In our design studio we challenge each other to “wow me with the details”. This translates into a truly individual design experience for our clients.
