Featured Home Project: Tutto Interiors

April 9th, 2016

Tutto Interiors Home Project This month we’re delighted to showcase a lovely new home project by Cheryl Nestro, Principal Tutto Interiors, Northville, MI.

Located in Howell, MI, this new 10,000-square-foot residential project was, essentially, a blank slate for Cheryl to bring her design vision to life. The clients contracted her to work with them from conception through final production on everything from architectural details and finishes to complete furnishing and styling.

Cheryl oversaw it all, including two complete kitchens on the main and lower level; a grand entranceway with dual staircases; a formal, Paris-inspired living room, and a transitional master suite.  She also designed the home’s formal library and a two-story master bedroom closet – choosing Habersham custom cabinetry and furniture for these spaces.

Combine the Unexpected with the Familiar | 2017 Pantone® Home + Interiors palettes Revealed

by Joyce Eddy, Chairman of the Board  |  
March 25th, 2016

Pantone Interiors 2016In an earlier blog, I touched on the Fashion Colors Pantone expects to come on strong for Fall 2016.  During the recent 2016 International Home + Housewares Show,  Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, also revealed the nine color palettes for 2017 from Pantone® View Home + Interiors.

As reported by the International Housewares Association,  she said:

“We are all familiar with consumers’ constant desire to see something new, yet they still want, in many cases, to have somewhat of a familiar comfort level,” said Eiseman. “We have to assess our customers’ aspirations by using credible forecasts as a guide to invigorated color design palettes that will inform and encourage new color directions. The question is: What can we do to tweak our color palettes to make consumers stop and take notice?”Habersham Napoli Wine Center

Among the color and design trends she shared are: the rising use as maps – both traditional and contemporary – as a design element; the resurgence of black and white imagery; power-clashing – “the use of unexpected color combinations that seem to be discordant but yet they still work”; pixilated and digitized patterns; and the popularity of green, both as the color of nature and of health and wellness.

Pantone Releases Fashion Color Report For Fall 2016 | Will Home Colors Follow?

by Joyce Eddy, Chairman of the Board  |  
March 10th, 2016

Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2016Pantone has released its Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016.  We always enjoy reviewing and studying these tones and watching how they gradually make their way into the home, too.

As reported by Home Accents Today: Illustrating “A Unity of Strength, Confidence and Complexity,” the season’s 10-color palette is inspired by “the desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism,” led by the blue family, Pantone said.

The Fall 2016 colors are:

  • Riverside
  • Airy Blue
  • Sharkskin
  • Aurora Red
  • Warm Taupe
  • Dusty Cedar
  • Lush Meadow
  • Spicy Mustard
  • Potter’s Clay
  • Bodacious

“Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections,” Pantone explained. “Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.”

The different shades each have significance, noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Blue skies represent constancy, as they are always above us,” she said. “Grays give a feeling of stability. Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”

Design Trends 2016 : ‘Home As Sanctuary’

by Joyce Eddy, Chairman of the Board  |  
January 27th, 2016

Habersham Custom Dressing Room Design

A recent article in The Post and Courier suggests that interior design is trending towards meaningful and healthy for 2016.  As reported in the story:

Embracing and heartfelt, genuine and environmentally minded, classic and contemporary — perhaps even an eclectic mix of the two — as long as it reflects a personal and meaningful take on the world.

That’s where interior design is headed in 2016: toward homes that neutralize the complexity and stress of life by becoming retreats of greater authenticity and peacefulness rather than places full of generic and relatively meaningless stuff.

“In design, people are talking about well-being across the board, physical and emotional,” said New York interior designer Robin Wilson, founder and CEO of Robin Wilson Home and author of “Clean Design: Wellness for Your Lifestyle.” “It is not just about beautiful anymore.”

It’s more about soul and meaning, said Charleston designer Beverly Bohan of Haute Design. She describes a home integrating the best of contemporary and classical pieces in a clean approach that creates an environment that’s about you and what you stand for.

“It’s no longer about buying to buy and just putting stuff out there,” Bohan said. “It’s not disposable. It’s more thoughtful … genuine, personal. It’s about how you live, your personality, your values, what represents you and your philosophy of life.”

Here at Habersham we certainly agree.  We love working closely with our designer, dealer and homeowner clients to create meaningful interiors that not only reflect the lifestyle needs and dreams of the homeowner, but offer timeless looks that can last for generations to come.
