Simplicity is a trait that is often overlooked in our world. Sometimes, the biggest statements can be made by not making a statement at all. Such is the case when you are decorating with empty frames, which can serve as a bold and refreshing statement that is sure to be appreciated.

Designed to be the finishing touch of fine artwork, empty frames are pieces of art in and of themselves. Further, since they don’t contain artwork, it’s much easier to blend them into the decor of any room. A simple black frame goes with virtually any decor, and a gold frame will give your rooms a touch of class reminiscent of the finest hotels.

By alternating frame size, you can create unique mosaics that allow the imagination to run free. You can inset seasonal decor such as wreaths and flowers, within the frames to create an ever changing ambiance that never goes out of season or style.

Decorating with empty frames can give your home a unique and creative appearance. It’s just one of the many secrets Design Build Team, Inc. can help you unravel. We invite you to contact us today to learn more about our services.

Benefits of an Itailian Inspired Kitchen

Posted on September 11th, 2014 by

Italian kitchen design is both elegant and refined. From the intricate details to the well-planned layout, it’s a design style well worth pondering over a nice Chianti. When done correctly, the finished kitchen is one that everyone will admire.

At the heart of Italian kitchen design is the concept that kitchen visual elements should compliment the functional elements. Therefore, wine racks, cabinetry, countertops, and appliances should be chosen so that they’re visually stunning without detracting from their functional purpose.

Of particular note, elements of traditional Italian kitchens can be blended with more modern, contemporary elements. Thus, it’s possible to include stainless steel appliances, pendant lights, etc. as long as these elements are balanced by traditional elements such as granite countertops, hardwood floors, etc. The most important thing is to create harmony between these various elements so that when you are cooking or entertaining, the space is comfortable and inviting.

Embrace Japanese Inspired Interior Design

Posted on September 3rd, 2014 by

There is a lot to be said about simplifying your life, and Japanese inspired interior design embraces simplification at every turn. From clean lines and ample indoor lighting to uncluttered living space and a minimal amount of furniture, Japanese design is peaceful and relaxing for everyone in the family.

One of the primary objectives of the design is to bring you closer to nature. Thus, views of the outdoors and the incorporation of indoor gardens are elements you want to design around. When coupled with wood, bamboo, and stone accents, they create peace and harmony that flows effortlessly from room to room.

Another element that is crucial is the incorporation of water to create tranquility. Thus, bathrooms with soaking tubs and saunas are things you will most certainly want to include.  Of course, you will want to close these rooms off via traditional Shoji screens that slide back and forth along the wall to conserve space within the room.
