No research. No drama.

We all adore the final outcome, but design projects are not for the faint of heart. Sourcing perfectly timeless tile, considering the scale of the furniture and the height of those who will sit in it, getting the undertones right on the paint color, scheduling a parade of contractors…it just so happens we love it all.
