The new Johnston County Airport Terminal puts Smithfield on the map for more than just air travel; with first class conferencing facilities and a business development office, it serves as a hub for corporate development for the surrounding areas.

We were involved with the design of this new terminal from the ground up.  Our interiors accent the soaring ceilings with unique light fixtures and architectural details that embody the excitement of flight.  Sophisticated patterns and materials lend an upscale, cosmopolitan look the client was hoping for, while keeping the spaces inviting.  A large fireplace graces the waiting area, which has become a cozy meeting place for members of the aviation community.

Imagining your Project with Digital Renderings

When True Flavors Diner asked us to design the interior of their new restaurant in Durham, we were excited to make their dream become reality.   But we wanted to get their customers excited even BEFORE they were open for business.  The solution?  We created some awesome renderings of the space, showing every aspect of the design.

We think renderings are a great design tool, and we are proud to offer this capability to all of our clients.   Whether you are imagining your new home, or need to promote your business to clients, we can give you the tools to make it happen.

 

The only problem is, now we can’t wait to see the real thing!

Tibetan Tiger Rugs

While the historic origin of Tiger Rugs is shrouded in mystery, these Tibetan Masterpieces seem right at home in contemporary design.  Newly- reinvented with today’s colors, they are the perfect addition to any eclectic home.  But don’t worry – no tigers were harmed in the making of these rugs;  they’re 100% hand-knotted wool.

Current Project: A Rustic Modern Boy’s Nursery

I’m so excited to share this fun nursery that I helped my client’s design earlier this spring!  They just welcomed their son last week and as a new mom myself, I couldn’t be more excited for them!

Design Lines Green and Blue Boys Modern Nursery Raleigh

Our inspiration for the room came from the wooden tree circles that we hung above the crib.  They found these from an artist on Etsy (see the sources below), and I love how unique they are!  Throughout the rest of the room, we continued the natural color scheme of blues and greens and brought in rustic elements.  None of the furniture matches exactly which creates a collected, eclectic feel.

Design Lines Green and Blue Nursery Raleigh NC 6

The dresser doubles as a changing table and three handsome prints hang above it.  We selected all of the elements first before selecting the wall color, which is the easier way to do it.  After all, there are thousands of paint colors available.  In this case, we ordered the rug and selected Sherwin Williams Repose Gray to match it.   The neutral tone provides a great backdrop for bolder colors that would be too strong to use as the wall color.

Design Lines Green and Blue Nursery Raleigh NC .5

They had an existing chest and hutch that we thought would be perfect for the space with a new coat of paint.  We had a color custom matched for a pop of green and substituted the hardware for these leather pulls from Anthrolopogie.

The branchy print on the cornice adds a graphic punch and I loved using the different tones of green around the room.

I loved seeing all of their shower gifts and even some toys and books from their own childhood that I used to fill the shelves.

Instead of getting a glider, we selected this modern wing chair in an emerald green with wonderful lumbar support, just perfect for feeding the baby.  The wings provide a great spot to rest your head when you’re up in the middle of the night!  And once he’s a little older, it will be a great reading chair.  The rustic floating shelves allow the books to become art.

Current Project: Taking a Design from Concept to Reality

Our biggest challenge was how to put a fish tank in a living room and make it “fit in.” Judy created this multi-functional display and fish tank cabinet to meet the clients NYC lounge vibe. We took  what could have been a standard cabinet and made it truly unique. We added a vibrant coral color, dim-able LED lights, ventilation and water-proof materials to sustain the wear and tear of the fish tank.

Below is a sample of our rendering capabilities and what we are able to do during the creative process.

Who says a commercial space has to look like one? In this recent project, we helped our client feel at home in his new workspace.

When our client wanted an inviting place to put patients at ease, Rob jumped at the opportunity to design Cary Endodontics from the ground up. Rob drew on his background in architecture to create a modern space incorporating various custom details and architectural features. The result is a spa-like atmosphere that makes the experience of visiting the doctor truly enjoyable.
