Hi, folks. Modern Reston just launched their online web magazine.  Check them out on FB, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to keep up with their art, design, recreation and dining features.    We look forward to hearing more about Reston from Michelle and Charlotte!


While you are browsing, make sure to look for their article Ask a Designer: Decorating a Mid-Century House, where Kari and I talk about design today in the MCM home.


Happy Monday!




Please excuse our recent silence. As a young company, we are still working on that fine balance between regular blogging and running a studio. However, we’re still here, it’s just been an awesome summer filled with new clients, installs, vacations and company building.
We have some exciting new projects and recent installs to share with you soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to pass along a recent Houzz article about reading areas for kids that features our Astronomer’s Observatory project.
Here is the slideshow from the article. Do you have a favorite?

Talk soon (we promise)!

Kari and Kate

We hope everyone is looking forward to a lovely holiday tomorrow.  Now, if you happen to be looking for a way to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 via desktop accessories, we’ve got you covered with the patriotic display below!  If you haven’t seen it, Poppin has a great feature on their website where you can Design-a-Desk, choosing a custom color selection from their most popular accessories!




Kari and I are visual people, so for us, being able to visually toggle through the impressive array of colors to create the perfect combination is such a useful tool for us.  We each have our own favorite color combos (bet you wouldn’t guess mine includes a little pink!), and we’ve used Poppin products a handful of times with different clients, and we always come back to the Design-a-Desk feature each time we are putting together a proposal.  We love the impact that the custom colorway provides!


We hope that your weekend is filled with fireworks, barbecues, parades, fairs, picnics, speeches, ceremonies and a plethora of pomp and circumstance (if that’s your thing!) to celebrate the 238th birthday, and the wonderful history and traditions of our beautiful United States of America!


Anyone headed to the West Lawn for the Capitol Fourth this year?
