Market Recap | Great Things We Have Come Across

Retroceder 15 segundos
Avanzar 15 segundos
We’ve been asked several times since returning from market about what we saw while there, what’s coming, what’s out, what we’re expecting, what the latest colors and trends are. We hadn’t been to market since before all the pandemic stuff, so we wanted to answer that call of those questions and we are so excited to share with you what we’ve seen and learned. We love antique rugs because they’re unique and you can’t find them anywhere else in the world, so we’ll go out and talk to our rug flipper who will pick up these old, but nice rugs which we can use to give spaces that unique, cosy, and happy look. We love going to market because we get to see these top quality setups and designs that designers have been spending 6 months on to present, which we then get to show to our own clients.

“The nickel would look really fly with that bittersweet chocolate, I’m just gonna say, very Ralph Lauren, right? We’re still gonna see it and we’re still gonna mix metals, but gold isn’t out, guys. It’s still antique, it still has a trueness to it. It wasn’t just a brush gold.” “And we’re probably going to still choose it 70% of the time over nickel, but then nickel, we’re always gonna use nickel on a faucet, and I really don’t ever want to see gold silverware.” 19:56

    Bedding 101: How to Personalize Your Sleep | Maximizing Your Comfort Level


    We’re talking with Ashley Willis who is the brand manager at Malouf, a bedding company that we’ve been selling at Alice Lane Home for the last 5-7 years. We talk about thread count in sheets and the factors that go into having a high quality bed sheet, such as the high quality materials used like tensile, which helps regulate your body temperature as you sleep. Understanding your sleep preferences is necessary in experiencing the best sleep you can because not everyone has the same taste in bed sheets. Linen is durable, lasts a long time, and their linen is something that gets softer over time, the more it gets washed and is a favorite of many. They have various different types of pillows and Ashley talks about the various kinds and why they’re nice and how you can use each unique one for your comfort. How Malouf got started and what’s special about what they do 1:38Thread count 5:48Are there sheets for equalizing between two different body temperatures? 8:15Getting that magazine look for your bedding 10:37Must haves for your bedding 13:02Different types of fills 15:24Linen bedding or just sheeting? 16:25Pillows, dos and don’ts 17:52What people don’t think about 22:36Top selling sheet, fills, and pillow 24:48“I think that sheets definitely serve utilitarian purpose in the sense that it’s the fabric that’s directly against your skin when you’re going to bed, but it also has a look to it, and so if you’re trying to bring in a very specific look to your bedroom, whether you want something that’s maybe warmer colors or cooler colors, also understanding what that looks like and how that plays in to the rest of your color palette for your space I think is really important as well.” 13:[email protected]:// Letter:

    Creating A Playful Children's Space | Keeping Things Fun and Organized


    Today we’re going to focus on play spaces and how to organize playrooms, and make those fun spaces, but we suggest you go back and listen to the “Designing the Perfect Kids Room” podcast from our show to get a nice warm up in organizing and trying to develop your kids’ space. We give some tips and ideas for organizing and making the best of your space when bedrooms are small and what you can do, such as cubbies or using a basement for toys and items that don’t need to be in the bedroom. You can help motivate your kids to clean up by explaining why it’s important to put the things in their places, or by telling them they can only have a certain amount of toys and to pick their favorites, and then give the remaining ones to kids who don’t have them. Setting up a good floor plan to keep things clean and organized 2:16Maximizing the space with small bedrooms 9:00Suggestions on how to motivate your kids to keep things organized 14:33What every kid should have in their room 17:37Playrooms: how to make the space look nice and still function as a playroom 20:48A good place to set up a craft table and keep it tidy 22:31What is a fun kids room we’ve made? 25:19“Even that first kid’s podcast, we talk about how kids have way better ideas than we do. Yes they sometimes need to be reigned in a little bit, but you get to choose. It’s kind of like with Halloween costumes. I love that Nolan picks out his Halloween costume because I get to remember what he was into at that moment and looking back at those pictures is so sweet, and it’s kind of the same thing with their rooms.” 18:43 Letter:

    Answering Listener Questions | Top 15 Inquiries


    Today we’ve got a fun one. We’ve had so many questions from our listeners and decided to put 15 of them into one episode. Sue and Jess haven’t had a chance to look at the questions yet, so Cori will be reading them, and then Jess and Sue will give their answers. Swivel reclining chairs have typically been less pleasing to the eye, but recently better styles have been coming out and moving furniture is one of the more sought after items these days and our teams here at Alice lane can help you find something great for the men in your life. A great way to add family photos to your design is create a space where you can display your favorite moments you’ve captured and display them in a reverent way. Where do you shop for dresses? 1:40Best options for a men’s recliner 7:42Do you need dark curtains with dark paint? 10:22Favorite materials for covered porches 12:24How to bring color in a neutral furnished room? 13:47Go-to framing for art 16:09Best tips for a gallery wall in a hallway or bedroom 19:59How we add family photos into our design 23:29Should we prioritize replacing old decor or buying pieces we don’t currently own 25:30How long should a console table be that sits behind your sofa? 29:30How to address lighting in a room without an outlet 32:07What to do about a tiny gap between countertop and a window 33:54Where we go for inspiration 34:58How we decorate the office at work 39:30“Not using a paper mat is always ideal. If you have to use a cardboard paper mat, that’s great, just do a really thick one with a beveled edge. That’s gonna look awesome, and then some people are like, allergic to gold and they only like silver, or they want to do black frames. Whatever your metal is, or your neutral, just lean into it and find the one that looks the most expensive.” 16:[email protected]:// Letter:

    Living with Your Layout | What to Do When You Can’t Expand


    We’ve had a lot of questions lately about people with floor plans that are hard for them to know what to do when trying to pull their house together in a beautiful, cohesive way. With a split level open area, you can give both areas their own interpretations to give them separate personalities instead of giving the two similar designs. We give our thoughts one what to do if you have a room with two focal points, such as a TV on one side and a fireplace on the other. In this situation, we suggest splitting the room so that you can have an area facing the fireplace with maybe a chess table, and then a couch facing the other way to focus on the TV. For traffic flow, try pulling things away from the wall when possible, to help in letting people travel around through the room. Rugs are great for creating multiple groupings of furniture and other elements to pull everything in that small area together when you may not have a wall to do so. Our awesome website 1:18Split level open area 2:09What to do with more than one focal point 5:57An open concept floor plan and decorating a two story room’s final layer 10:01Traffic flow 14:44The rug 17:30“We don’t live in a big house, but I do love when I turn to go down this hallway where our bedrooms are at and it’s just art, but the biggest piece of art, and the most dynamic piece of art and the glossiest piece of art is at the very end and I flip on the lights and I’m like ‘Ah, there you are!’ Vantage points are so critical.” 16:55 Letter:

His diverse accomplishments have been widely published in the most prestigious architectural and interior design magazines around the world. In 2005, he was honored by Architectural Digest US with the distinction "Dean of American Design". Based in Washington, D.C. he continues to work on residential and commercial projects throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. We listen to Thomas Pheasant’s story as he went from being an architect to doing both architecture and interior design and how he finds his inspiration in developing his unique style that you can find in The New Collection for example. How Thomas got started 3:01Interior architecture 11:17Blair House 14:07About the New Collection 24:07His process 36:00His time in Paris 41:18How he defines luxury 52:26“Try to find your voice as soon as you can. There are a lot of creative people who do really well. They’ll do anything, they can do modern, they’ll do art deco, they’ll do Williamsburg, or whatever and they make a lot of money. You can be successful, but I think if you wanna have a career and have that personal power inside yourself, that energy, you gotta find your voice and allow the people who recognize it come to you and they will propel you.” 21:12 Letter:
