How to do Big Design in a Small Space

How to do Big Design in a Small Space

If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you may have already seen some teasers of this luxury remodel we’ve designed for our lovely client, Ashlee Kennedy (and if you’re not following us on IG you should be ;) @alicelanehome & @alicelaneinteriors). Lucky for us, Ashlee has impeccable taste and is a lover of the Frank Sinatra era, 80s rock-n-roll and designer, Kelly Wearstler. Packing all this style into an older 4,000 sq. foot home was a challenge we were excited to accept.

This home was built in 1986, with that came low 8-foot ceilings and small rooms. In the entry, we used one of our favorite space expanding tricks. This busy tile pattern, made up of three different stones, confuses…

Say Yes to Color

Say Yes to Color

Gone are the days of “builder gray” or all white kitchens. Color has officially taken over the design world. As you can imagine, we’re all for the color therapy trend manifesting itself in bright yellow pillows, deep orange sectionals, and blue drenched walls. Being surrounded by color is truly just that—therapy for the soul. There’s something about it that instantly puts you in a good mood and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want that?

Buying a pink velvet sofa or painting your walls, molding and ceiling might be intimidating (or it might not, and if not, you’re our kind of person!). If you’re hesitant to go all in, here are some ways to dip your toes into the pool of color.

  • Start in the powder bath. It’s a small footprint and you…

The Parcell Entryway

The Parcell Entryway

Making an entrance is a designer’s dream, especially when your client is taste maker and influencer, Rachel Parcell. She is known for her beautifully fashioned looks that she has shared from her entry selfie mirror for years now. In her new home we created a few photogenic scenes in the entry where she could take snaps of her lifestyle and where her guests could be welcomed in for one of her picture worthy events. Here is a peek into her beautiful new home, where she lives with her husband Drew, two darling kids and their pup, Dash!

This gracious space boasts tall ceilings, custom finish work and intricate floor design. We really wanted to evoke Rachel’s love for high fashion and small details from top to bottom. To get the inside scoop, we sat down with…

Finding the Perfect Rug

Finding the Perfect Rug

If there is one thing every room needs it’s a rug (yes, even over carpet). Rugs are what really defines a space and pulls it all together which is why in our design center, we almost always start from the ground up and pick out the rug before anything else. In honor of our Rug Sale happening now through Wednesday, March 20th, we’re sharing some important things to consider when searching for the perfect rug.

  • Make sure you’re using the right scale. Buying a rug too small is one of the most common design mistakes. As a general rule of thumb, never use anything smaller than 8x10 for your living room or bedroom. There is nothing worse than seeing a “magic carpet” (as we like to call it) floating in the…
