DESIGN CHAT:: WINTER WHITES

SOFT MONOCHROMATIC INTERIOR DESIGN

January, new beginnings, cooler temps and in some areas snow days. What is it about a fresh new snow that feels so good? (Unless you have to shovel it, of course)

All of these chilly days and thoughts of snow have us reminiscing our favorite monochromatic white spaces that we have designed over the years:

Symmetry and balance at it’s finest. This classic interior will forever be one of our favorites.


Mid Century Modern interior by Lisa Gilmore Design

An oldie, but definitely a goodie. The way the shiny terrazzo floors, chrome details and white upholstery played with each other, makes the sunshine bounce heavenly through the space.

While this space isn’t completely just white, we can’t help but adore this lake house interior with it’s crisp white design, lucite cocktail table and jolts of navy blue.

Classic tufting, mahogany, hand blocked wallpaper finished with a beautiful collection of botanical imagery. This monochromatic foyer is ever so pleasing.

Those beams, that chandelier, the bright walls in contrast with the dark trim. There is so much we love about this space, the layout, the texture and all the monochromatic calmness.

Where ever your winter days may find you, we hope you are enjoying them in a beautiful space, hopefully with a cozy fire nearby.

With love & design-y dreams,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

NEW YEARS WISHES AND GREETINGS!

2018 was a very good year to our team, we kicked off the year in Paris for Maison Objet & Deco Off, we came back with loads of inspiration, new vendors and artisans to start implementing into our designs. Looking back, that trip was a really great call, it really started our year off to the best, most beautiful start!

I often still dream about all the beautiful lighting, textiles, furniture and natural beauty of the Parisian surroundings - and our sweet little Parisian flat, swoon!

We got the opportunity to work on some pretty amazing spaces - some bars with some serious swank factor like Mandarin Heights

DESIGN PROJECT | A CUSTOM CAPE DUTCH HOME

We just started working on a new custom residential home that is being built in sunny St. Petersburg, in the Snell Isle neighborhood. We absolutely love the start of a new project, meeting with clients, learning their styles, about their families, hobbies including everything that goes into a happy home. I joke often, but it really is a lot like dating - going back and forth, understanding likes and dislikes. Here is the vision we have created for this breezy upscale property.

A DREAMY FAMILY HOME INSPIRED BY CAPE DUTCH ARCHITECTURE

Vision board created by Lisa Gilmore Design for Custom Cape Dutch Style Home

 

BRITISH WEST INDIES MEETS DUTCH CAPE VIBE: POLISHED AND ELEGANT WITH MIXES OF NATURAL, APPROACHABLE AND DURABLE ELEMENTS.

 
  • Monochromatic tone all over incorporating the use of contrast to make it fresh and modern. 

  • Wow factors throughout: uses of interesting tile, lighting, architectural details, all shaking hands with supporting characters to create a beautiful and cohesive design.

  • High end resort feel: lush greenery, indoor & outdoor drapery, lovely & durable textiles and unique furnishings. Everyone comes to your house for a great time and they can leave their worries at the door, as if they were stepping into a Slim Aarons photograph  “I'm concentrated on photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places”- Slim Aarons

  • Fashion influences: posh and tailored with an approachable feel, not trying too hard, luxury style that comes at an ease and makes heads turn. 

  • Modern art mixed in with modern and traditional furniture: a curated vibe, nothing will feel matchy, as if you picked up a side table on a trip to South Africa, a painting in France and a light fixture in New York.

The home was designed and is being built by our friends at Peregrine Construction. We are so excited to break ground January 2019, follow along with the progress in our social media. #lisagilmore #capedutchmodern

PNW LIVING ROOM

Inspired by the waterfront of White Rock, British Columbia, Canada - nature, water, fresh air, blues, greens and browns…

A combination of clean lines, natural textures: wood, beach grass & rope, paired with hide and a sculptural coffee table. Rich wood tones, metallic nature inspired art and a bohemian style chandelier create a cozy and inviting living room space for those to enjoy on those rainy gray PNW fall & winter days, but also translate well for the refreshing summer months.
