The love of color, texture and pattern is what inspires us. Our projects are mainly concerned with how to integrate these elements into the design of a room. Past periods of painted decoration are a constant and a very rich source to draw our ideas from. At the same time we are challenged to incorporate those sources into contemporary settings.
