Five things: week of 9.12.11

September 16, 2011

1. Wow! What a week!

Within the past 7 days we’ve been featured in The Daily News, Apartment Therapy, and Elle Decor’s designer registry. Can’t hardly believe it all.

And, to keep up with our big week, we have a big announcement as number 5 of the week (so keep reading).

2. Some of the gorgeous-ness we are considering for a project:

 

3. Two things crossed our paths that made us go hmmm….

First: Holy tufting! This is a flat wallpaper that oh-my-god looks like an upholstered, tufted wall! Do you know how real it looks? Really real! It had us fooled from about 5 feet away! And in case you don’t know, upholstering a wall is bonkers expensive. But when it’s a paper that looks like tufting…it’s about 1/16th of the price! And I love everything tufted. I could live in a tufted house.

This wallpaper is available at Romo.

Second: Did you know that Virginia could live in a plaid house? Not just in the fall and winter, but, like, all year long. And there would be plaid carpeting, plaid window treatments, plaid furniture, plaid lamp shades, and now, PLAID MARBLE TILE!

Guys, you have no idea how tremendous this tile is! I’m telling you, you could hear our jaws hit the floor! Sorry it’s all plastic wrapped up in the photo, but it was a sneak peak from our friends at Studium since it’s a brand new product. So now when I design Virginia’s fantasy house, she is going to have a plaid powder room, and you are all going to want to use it!

Oh, P.S. she’ll probably make you a fancy meal while wearing a plaid dress and serve you on a plaid tablecloth.

4. Had a visit from our favorite rep Julie from Osborne and Little to preview the amazing fall 2011 collection of O & B and Designer’s Guild (two of our faaaavorite go-to lines). Apparently animal skins are STILL IN. Not that we’re complaining…

This wallpaper is a funkified hologram reptile skin – crazy! But in the right place it would be smashing! 

Reptiles don’t discriminate. They also shed their skin on velvets and velours and what have you. 

And just because they do their oversized colorful florals so right…

5. And, finally, our “Do It Yourself Design” program giving id 810 style lovers our signature look for (much) less, launched this week (coincidence that it launched at the same time as Missoni’s Target line? We think not! Great minds, people. Great minds.)

It’s aptly titled Blueprint 810, since we provide you with the “blueprint” to build your home in your own decorative style .

In all honesty, we really can’t put in words how excited we are to now be able to accommodate a wide variety of budgets and price points.

For real. We’re this excited.

(see? this is us, being excited.)

We’ve always believed that everyone is entitled to an incredibly designed home, no matter what the budget, but interior design in it’s traditional sense is somewhat limited (to giant budgets, ya know?). But thankfully we have a really good relationship with our BFF the interweb and now we can make magic happen.
