Passionate for Design!

We get asked this question everyday, “But what is it that you do?”  Interior Design is an often misinterpreted occupation.  Interior Design is the artistic science of creating functional, safe, aesthetically pleasing environments based on a client’s needs.  Designers have to apply technical and resourceful solutions that adhere to code, as well as solutions that coordinate and respond to the building’s structure.  What does that mean?  We can move walls!

This is a client’s existing home layout:

And this will be their new home layout!

BHD does a ton of kitchen renovations!

When we plan a new kitchen layout, we coordinate each and every cabinet with the client and know their needs for each area of their kitchen.

We then implement our knowledge of materials and products that will be used to create and furnish the space.  We take into account color, texture, lighting,  and combine them to finish off the space!

Designers also help clients find creative solutions to common problems.  Such as a need for more storage in a bathroom!

The result can be beautiful!

When coordinating a bathroom renovation we work with plumbing and tile, not only to meet the client’s style, but in order for the fixtures and accessories to function perfectly for their body type and daily routines.  We plan this very carefully.

We also have the gift of communication.  We not only have to communicate clearly and effectively to our clients, but with contractors and service providers as well.  The outcome of great communication can be gorgeous!

And…we also decorate!  Taking into account a client’s need for certain furnishings and functions, as well as style, we select everything from furniture to art work.  Pulling it all together is what we do best!

Hope we’ve helped shed some light into our world.  Now let us shine some light in yours!

Pink & Red!

Valentine’s month gives the warmth of pinks and reds popping out of windows!

1

Passion, love, drama, and strength: red pulls these emotions from us. When we think about designing with these colors we have to remember the huge impact they can have in a space. It is easy for these colors to dominate a room and distract from the details. Like most things in life, these colors are beautiful in moderation. I love these pops of red for a room!2

Pink: This color represents compassion, nurturing, and love. Again, I believe it is best used in the accents or details of a space. Look how fun and bright this white sofa becomes with a pop of color.

I love the combination of pink and orange like the pillows above. Here is a recent set of dining chairs we refurbished for a client. How fun are they!

For a quick transformation of your space try some simple pillows on any sofa, bed or chair.

These table accessories are so cheerful they are sure to brighten any February day!

It may be a bit cold to be thinking about our outdoor spaces today, but I just love this red bench nestled amongst  the luscious greenery!

Another way to make a bold statement without overpowering a room is to paint the wall behind open shelving a contrasting color. Check out this lovely pink wall!

Color can be overwhelming to a lot of people, it scares them. Don’t shy away from a color you love. It might just be the way to invigorate life back in to an otherwise dull space.

 

Hardware for the Kitchen!!

Hardware for the kitchen is similar to wearing jewelry; it makes the kitchen sparkle.

We love to consider the various finishes, shapes and lengths of hardware, selecting different components and combinations.  Below are some of our favorites!

Here is the traditional knob and pull combination, ranging from traditional to modern.

Make a big statement with over sized pulls in the kitchen. The look of the large pull is very sharp.

Cup pulls are really evolving. Traditional cup pulls radiate nostalgia while a modern take makes the cup pull contemporary.
