How many of you have obsessed over puzzles during quarantine? 😅



Was waiting for professional photography on this project, our flip-house that turned into our home on Longboat Key, Fl. Since we are all still quarantined here are some photos from the past 9 months. Everyone wants before and after shots ... there are plenty. Nothing in life is perfect but this has been a peaceful transition place during these quarantined times — hope you all stay safe and healthy at home! PS ... stay tuned for our new website release coming very soon!! 😊


Some things feel more like work and some are blessings in disguise! So happy to share these beautiful spaces we worked on recently ... we will share more progress of other spaces in progress after covid-19. Be safe out there!

Please reach out to Krysta she’s a joy to work with. 👍🏻

Our recent High Point trip was focused on coastal design clients ... a fresh & fun lifestyle is irresistible ! ☀️

This fresh, bright and welcoming foyer speaks “happy space” to all who enter. #freshdesigns #interiorinspiration #beyondthemilldesign #interiordesignstudio #newdayfreshstart ☀️ @ Longboat Key, Florida

This week’s Tuesday Trend is focusing on the Sherwin Williams Color of 2020 - NAVAL. This versatile color is hitting homes all over, from coastal design to traditional spaces. Based on Sherwin Williams color creators and designers, Navy can be seen from ‘the nights sky to the depths of the sea.” We are bringing nature indoors with this color. Even with it’s deep, rich color, Naval is the color you will find that exhibits inner peace, tranquility and overall wellness.

Sherwin Williams also shares, that “2020 places importance on biophilia - the intrinsic need as humans to interact with nature.” Whether your home is on the peaceful ocean shore or in the great green woods, Naval is sure to create a natural refuge.

You will find Naval used in various spaces in the home - in particular, rich kitchen cabinets, deep accent bedroom walls, bathroom spaces and you will even find accent pieces painted with this beautiful color. Navy has been around forever you say? Well, not like this. Sherwin Williams Naval is helping ground your home and create your own personal getaway from the everyday stressors in life.

This color also pairs nicely with a few other Sherwin Williams colors - Tarnished Trumpet, Midday and Kale Green. All sticking to the earth friendly color scheme and biophilia. Think naturalistic design.

Interested in the 2020 Color of the Year - NAVAL? Check out the Sherwin Williams website below to view this gorgeous color and even see it live in a space!

Good Morning! This week's Tuesday Trend is 'FALL' for These Trends.

This Fall is BOLD, DEEP and BRAVE. Some of the top Fall 2019 Trends are some of our favorites and we are happy to share them with you.

Deep & Dark - On trend this 2019 Fall season are deep dark colors. What used to be intimidating is making it’s way into homes in accent furniture, art and home decor - it’s the color BLACK. Black creates a sleek look with a modern feel. To counterbalance to deep hue, pair with lighter creams and neutrals. Even black kitchens are making there way into homes, people are choosing to go BOLD and we are loving it!

Jewel Tones - In addition to the deep dark hue from above, jewel tones are taking the stage in the interior design industry this fall. These colors have popped up in recent seasons and aren't leaving quite yet. Think emeralds, amethysts, rich reds and pinks. Go bold with an accent wall or keep it simple with an accent piece like a sofa or case piece.

Shine On - Pops of brass, gold and copper are making their way into homes as well. Creating an elegance that is not just a current trend, but one that can stand the test of time. Add these metal elements to add glam to a space. Whether it be a beautiful chandelier, the legs of a modern dining chair or just the simplicity of the pulls on a case piece, adding these elements are a must.

Geometric Goods - The last ,and definitely not least, of the Fall 2019 trends are geometric patterns. This fall, the more geo the better. Geometric patterns can be found in upholstery, rugs, artwork, tile work and more. Go bold and mix those talked about jewel tones with geometric patterns in your home - the options are endless.

Contact us today to learn more on how to add these elements to your home - 703-729-2625
