You’re Invited! Mixing Interior Design Styles Workshop

facebook-event-v2

Gone are the days where one interior design style is enough… Now, people are starting to decorate their home with a variety of styles — mixing vintage with modern and classic with contemporary. How does one do this successfully, one may ask? That is why Maureen is hosting a workshop next week at Loot Vintage Rentals to answer all the questions you may have about how to create a space that mixes and matches your favorite styles in a way that reflects your multiples preferences.

Who? Maureen Stevens, of course. + Me (her assistant)

For as long as she can remember, Maureen has always been passionate about curating visually pleasing spaces and vignettes. Well-edited and immensely functional are the two main ingredients she always put into her design. Add refreshing to classy, a dash of “oomph” to sophisticated and you’ve got a recipe for her style aesthetic; her design style is never sterile and a hundred percent unpretentious & approachable. Maureen has always enjoyed sharing her ideas and collaborating with friends on styling…

What? Join Austin interior designer, Maureen Stevens, and her team for an evening of all things interior design. There will be bubbly and bites, as well as swag bags full of fun favors for all attendees. Bring all of your girl friends to learn some of Maureen’s home decorating tricks and tips! Hashtags: #MSDWorkshop #MaureenStevensDesign

5 Fab Friday Finds: Black + Gold

Hello all! The chill in the air on this fall Friday has me happier than ever in my cozy sweater. It’s the little things…right? I finally feel like the holidays are near since Austin has finally decided its over summer weather.

While we are transitioning our lives and homes into the next season, I wanted to inspire you all with some black + gold favorites.

Black {or as we like to call it, “Noir” because we are fancy}, symbolizes the spooky holiday coming up at the end of this month, Halloween. Gold, represents the golden leaves that are falling and all the festivities that come along with the holidays.

When combined, this color duo makes any piece of furniture or accessory look chic and swank. Enjoy these fabulous finds!

black-gold 1. Coco Cabinet, Shine By S.H.O

This funky cabinet shown in ebony oak has brushed brass inlay and acrylic door pulls — from our mouths, oh my gosh!

2. Modernist Murano Glass Wall Sconces, from a local Austin fave, Jean-Marc Fray

These Italian Mid-Century Modern style wall sconces are composed of glass globe shades and black lacquered cones that extend from brass structures.

3. “Midnight Tide” by Kelly Wearlster

I am obsessed with this simple, yet distinctive work. The artist’s love of geometric form, rich textures, and bold imagery is what inspired this gesso painting. “Midnight Tide” also comes in turquoise.

4. Angles Wallpaper in Black / Gold, Erica Wakerly – locally sold at Supply Showroom

This incredible metallic wallpaper is printed in the UK and comes in all different color combinations. Supply Showroom, located in Austin, also carries this line of wallpaper if you want to go see this daring combination in person.

5. Anabelle BRB in Black, Worlds Away

The Anabelle in black velvet and brass is the definition of a posh dining chair. Although I am hooked on the black and gold combo, it also comes in a bright orange velvet and a white velvet with either a nickel or brass frame.

That’s all for now! Feel free to share your own black and gold finds with us in the comment boxes below. We love getting feedback and getting to know what grabs the attention of our readers and fellow interior designers. Have a fantastic weekend!
