Wood flooring has seen a resurgence in its popularity for the last few years, but the latest spin on this old favorite is the flooring trend toward LIGHT or NATURAL wood flooring.
Light colors or natural surfaces look gorgeous in our minimalist environments. They add warmth to a modern interior and they a compliment the look of traditional or county-styled homes.
When the temperatures drop the colors heat up! Get ready for the Hot Colors of Fall 2012.
Pantone came out with their Top Ten colors for the fall. Here are Beasley & Henley Interior Design’s Top Five!
1. Tangerine. This orangy delight has been around for a while and shows no signs of slowing down.
Beasley & Henley Interior Design‘s commercial side is in love with Flock by HON. It’s office furniture that’s fresh, comfy, and modular for flexibility in design for the office, lounge, or other area with people congregate and collaborate. Flock is easy to reconfigure and it’s endlessly adaptable.
Touting itself “New York’s Next Architectural Icon” is Mercedes House, a residential complex in midtown NYC. The structure is a giant, twisting staircase rising into the skies, in which each of the 865 units gets a more-than-fair-share of sunlight. The 1.3 million square feet of New York stairway are in perfect view of the Hudson River and Clinton Park.
Amenities of this New York stairway include rooftop gardens, plenty of indoor-outdoor fitness areas, and a Mercedes dealership. Units go for the New York-reasonable price of around $3,000 per month.
We’re loving Dune — this modular, grey seating by Rainer Mutsch. It’s made of natural cellulose fiber cement. The design is stark but naturally inviting. It looks almost as if a giant pressed their impossibly fat thumb down into a piece of stone and curved out a fantastic little space for us to sit!
Dune has received the Red Dot Design Award 2009, Good Design Award 2010, and Green Good Design Award 2011.
