    When it comes to furniture buying: Quality > Saving Money

    Has this ever happened to you? You purchase a piece of clothing/bedding/furniture because it was inexpensive. Unfortunately, after a few times of wear/washing/usage, the item no longer looks/feels the same, in fact, it starts to fall apart quickly.There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to save money, but it’s important to know frugality doesn’t mean we should purchase cheap items.

  • Sherwin Williams ColorMix 2017!

    Color selection is always an interesting topic. Some people are bold color lovers and it is evident in their clothes and homes! Others prefer a more subdued palette of neutrals. Color invokes feelings and expresses itself in many ways!

  • Style Spotting at High Point Market - Katy Skelton!

    Trying to take in the hundreds of showrooms at High Point Market can be exhilarating and invigorating but overwhelming at the same time! Tours are offered to highlight some of the smaller showrooms or suites with designers or artist that possess exceptional talent or truly unique products! While on a tour with Celebrity Interior Designer, Bobby Berk, we were introduced to an exciting and up and coming furniture and textile designer!

  • Neutrals With a Twist - Part 2

    This week we will continue to look at neutrals in a whole new way! Great design can elicit a variety of feelings.  The exciting thing about neutrals is that you can create different moods depending on the warmth or coolness of the "colorless colors" you bring into a room!

  • Happy Holidays!

     We had a great 2015 at By Design Interiors and we look forward to making your dreams come true in 2016! We wanted to thank all of our clients and vendors and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a blessed 2016!       

  • Mad About Plaid!

    As the weather cools and the leaves change colors (or if you live in Houston, the pine needles fall) we are drawn to cozier fabrics, and nothing says fall like plaid! This traditional pattern is transitioning straight from the runways into home décor!

  • Lighting Icebreakers

    Typically, lighting is one of the last things to be considered on a remodel or new home. We think it is time to move it up on the list of priorities! With all the fantastic lighting options, you can not only brighten up your space but you can also bring in elements of your personality! These creative lighting fixtures push the envelope and make a statement!

  • Amazing Expressions of Chair Designs!

    Throughout history, the chair has symbolized different periods of history like no other piece of furniture. The chair has been witness to an ever changing evolution of interiors; from Ancient Greece, to Medieval times to Mid-Century. Chairs pose a design challenge because they need to combine form, function and be aesthetically beautiful!

  • Backsplashes - Infusing Personality Into a Room!

    Whether it is in your kitchen, master bathroom, bar or powder bathroom; backsplashes can infuse personality into a space! Backsplashes can be a stunning focal point in a room by adding color, texture or dimension to a room! As designers, we consider the backsplash to be an exciting design element where we have the opportunity to combine materials to create a custom design like no other!

  • Powder Bathrooms - The Jewelry Box of the Home!

    Powder baths can be transformed into the ultimate accessory rooms, like the jewelry box of a home! These half bathrooms are so much fun to design because you can really let your creativity flow freely and take some risks.  Because of their small size, you can try intense colors, unusual materials or use dramatic features without fear!

  • Acrylic Asending Once Again

     We love luminous, sparkling things like crystal and glass, but acrylic has the added benefit of not breaking, chipping or shattering! Although acrylic furniture gives a space a weightless, light and airy feel, it is actually quite strong and heavy!

  • Hardware as Jewelry

    Furniture hardware can be thought of like jewelry that you wear to polish off an outfit! Sometimes you go for the big, bold statement necklace, other times you wear a classic piece that is subtle and refined. The same goes for hardware on furniture; it can change the entire look of a piece!
