The Dust Settles

Phew! You may have wondered why you haven’t heard from me? On the other hand, maybe you didn’t notice I’ve been MIA for a few weeks. At any rate-I’m ba-a-a-ack. After weeks of major chaos we have settled into only minor chaos after moving both my businesses, Modello Designs and Royal Design Studio into our new building. I have some serious catching up to do in just about every area of life and business, but am starting here with some photos of our very green and black Creative Office. I had drywall beams installed on this ceiling because I had the idea to see just how many different patterns I could graphically represent in one room and thought “what a cool way to break ‘em up”. Also, I wanted to do something graphic and simple (to ME, this is simple). We painted. We plastered (my favorite color of Jasmine Portofino). Thanks Kari!

We picked out lots of pieces of Modello vinyl. Thanks Michelle and Melissa!

Weeding a Modello Trellis Pattern

We have pattern! I chose to alternate black trellis designs with green intricate floral patterns. To tie it all together, this Transitional Border runs around the room between the beams.

I surely need to get a wide angle lens!

Modello Trellis Ceiling

This room isn’t totally ready for it’s closeup as it is still being decorated, but it has a wonderful big black Pottery Barn desk/wall unit and some really cool FLOR tiles on green marmoleum. It’s coming along……

Designs used: Fol All 152, Eas All 105,106,107, Trans Bor 129.

    I am so happy to hear that the major part of your move is done. Do you and your crew ever sleep?? This ceiling is amazing and what a creative way of showing so many designs. The limited color pallet makes it all feel so fun and yet calm. You are always such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing!

    I love the colors you are using. I just finished my family room in green, black and ivory. I love the designs and the areas of solid color. You always inspire me.

    Looking forward to seeing more.
