5 Bold Bathroom Tile Floors

Uncategorized

 

I am obsessed with remodeling baths! I think it is because I love seeing great tile and stone installed and the notion that those surfaces are quite permanent.

Today, though…the focus is bold bathroom tile floors. These bold floors make a marvelous design statement. Bold color, bold pattern, bold texture…no holding back on the floors in these rooms. Cement tiles, mosaic marble basketweave tiles, hexagon ceramic tiles and so much more.

Tip: Notice…if you decide to go extremely bold on the floors…make sure to go minimal on the walls…I would suggest white tile walls or painted walls for bold bathroom floor.

Look 1: Subway tile and bold pattern flooring.

Look 2: Black and white can be used in many ways but here, it is modern traditional.

Look 3: Not sure which one is better, the tile or the shower layout?

Look 4: A interesting spin on black and white.

Look 5: Hexagons are a great shape to use to add interest!

Bold floor print patterns are a great way for designers to add interest to a room. It keeps the eyes wondering throughout the room, which can be great in commercial use. I always try to add either floor or ceiling details into my design because it adds so much more detail.

What do you think about bold bath floors?

7 Ways to Decorate With House Plants

Uncategorized

A friend of mine recently said they were not a fan of plants inside the house. I highly disagree! I love the idea of using a plant to enhance a room’s decor. Houseplants can add great visual texture to a room and they help purify the air. Studies have shown that plants can have a destressing effect too.

From a tall fiddle leaf fig or palm tree, to some creeping English Ivy, to some low maintenance Aloe Vera, a rubber plant, some bamboo…all good options for inside the house…

Today I show you some ways to style plants in your home! 

 

A little bit of potted greenery in a plant stand is the perfect accent.

A snake plant is low maintenance with a modern look.

Love a fiddle leaf fig in a basket. Definitely on trend.

Palm trees. Need I say more?

Commercial Designs: The Women’s Center

Commerical Designs

The Women’s Center is a women’s clinic based in Texas. It’s a large company with a nurse station staff of about 11 led by head Doctor Megan Phillips and Doctor Lauren Tucker. Ms. Phillips and Ms. Tucker treat women in the Pearland, Texas area.
The main purpose of the center is to provide a high rate of return of patients and most importantly, make sure that their patients are taken care of. The Women’s Center takes great pride in the architectural projects that they finance for their patient and staff. The Women’s Center wants the projects to be of superior quality, setting new standards for nurse’s stations in the transitional hospital where The Women’s Center is located. They are inspired by the high-end design that Dr.Tucker sees in visits to luxury day spas in the East Coast.
This particular project is called the Women’s Center. It is a concrete hospital from the 1960s, located in the city south of Texas Street. This is a transitional inner-city neighborhood; it has experienced resurgence in recent years, as some former industrial buildings are being converted to retail, and commercial uses.
The completed project will contain a nurse’s station, and six exam rooms.

Enlightenment through the Women’s Center is refined by an environment that is unified, holistic, organic, and ordered. The Louts Flower, a metaphorical symbol of both enlightenment and the geometrical principles of nature will be replicated in the design through sequencing, corresponding hospital colors, and curvilinear architectural. The welcoming nurses station is conveyed as a curvilinear state with flower texture paneling, dimly-lit overhead lighting, and custom flower murals that enhances the room. Designed with females in mind, the space will resonate with those who seek women’s healthcare, but also to those who share a work space. Like principles in design, the environment will be artistic, harmonious, and bring a unified spirit to the occupants through collaborative spaces.

As I graduate college in May 2018, I plan on staying close to home and finding a design job specializing in show room design or furniture design in High Point, N.C.
