This year’s 2013 NeoCon – was a splash of saturated colors and mix of geometric shapes and bold patterns. Really exciting to see lots of citron, red, orange and pink. I like the mix of planks, hexagons and organic carpet patterns. Lots of play with mixing colors and pairing bold themes with simple backdrops.
Check out the manufacturers of these items – I posted the montage on my facebook page.

With Spring Break wrapping up last week, Spring design season is in full swing. Natural, nautical and pops of bright colors are fun again. A renewal of color offering a punchy vibe to the home. We enjoyed our trip to Mexico Beach, FL and saw some neat seaside relics an architecture.

Looking for artwork, but something different, actual – relatable, almost touchable, drop you into a setting kinda artwork?
Check out “Lisa Swerling’s Glass Cathedrals.” She’s just released a new set of diorama’s appealing to the travelers and dreamers in all of us. I saw her artwork at the Summer – Renegade Chicago – Craft Fair. If she’s in the Chicago area again, I’ll be picking one up for sure – kicking myself for not jumping at the chance the first time.

Quoted in the article: “Some younger financial advisors are “tricking” out their offices to attract Gen X and Y investors. Here are what a few are doing to create office spaces more akin to those of Google than IBM.”

Construction is in full swing over at Streamline Financial, now the paint is up and colors are popping. Our current project working with Torch Architecture.
Finishes are what pulls a space together and gives it life. I’m anxiously awaiting the barn wood cladding, flecked floors, wallpaper and architectural doors. Look’n good!

This month I participated in The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg, First Annual Mock Interview and Shadow Event. Past alumni and current design professionals were asked to review portfolio’s and practice “mock interviews” with design students. Reconnecting w/ Director Mary Cain, and opening my eyes to advanced student work, encouraged me to get going w/ my 3D rendering skills. Now happy to put 3D rendering in my skill set – thanks Mary and Ai – Schaumburg.
