Beach Vibes “Happy Neutrals”

Fun to blend printed patterns into your neutral mix with subtle pops of color that do not overwhelm your space. Great update if your looking for a more natural way to add pattern to your home focusing on subtle color alternatives like mixing taupe with blue and grey!

When mixing patterns in your home it’s important to balance the ratio of solid color as it acts as a buffer between patterns…

At Design Works International, our focus is pattern but we like to share tips for those who are new to mixing pattern in your home and feel that these images are a great example.

This inspiration comes from 2 locations in Sag Harbor Long Island: Beach Bungalow on 26 Main Street and Fisher’s Home Furnishings on  144 Main Street.

Maison Objet Miami

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard that Maison Objet, the French trade show for interior design that has taken place in Paris only, was having its debut in America in Miami May 2015. I decided to venture to Miami yesterday (twist my arm) and see what Maison & Objet (Americas) was all about.

Maison Objet in the Miami Beach Convention Center had just over 300 exhibitors from all over the world. The diversity ranged from high profile companies to new rising star artisans which gave the show a new twist to its more established show in Paris…think “Boutique Maison”!

The venvue was easy to navigate which left me with a few hours to explore the Miami Design District which too has grown over the years! With the success of Art Basel and the expansion of the Design District Miami does seem to be the right and natural choice for Maison in America!

Enjoy some of my highlights from my day at Maison Objet in America as well as images from the Miami Design District!

Color, Chaos & Creativity

Someone has to do it….so why not me?

Often I am asked why I love what I do everyday for a living and as the old saying goes…”Find a job you love and you”ll never work a day in your life”….25 years in my design studio in NYC with some of the most talented and dedicated designers, amazing clients and friends, my husband Neil as my business and life partner and two kids that are well on their way to creating their own path in life…sounds easy right…nope lots of hard work, dedication, long days and nights in the studio, PTA meetings and more!

My point…it takes time to build ones career and good things are worth the wait. This is my mantra during the many interviews I conduct in my studio because I feel it so important today to be realistic about ones professional path. It took years of…
