A Year In Review : 2018

Elizabeth Tobin

What. A. Year. From another major project photo shoot on the Cape, to our own home’s renovation ever growing, to installing in the Berkshires and Vermont, we’ve been all over New England and back. Here are a few highlights we wanted to shared heading into the new year.


Highlights of 2018


  1. New England Home Feature

We got a major feature in Summer 2018 Cape and Islands issue of New England Home for our Nantucket Project. We worked with Botticelli and Pohl associates on this awesome house in the dunes. Our clients wanted a clean and natural interior. Shooting this project was so fun, and we went to our favorite in the industry, Jim Westphalen, for photos. Styling an entire house on your own is no small feat. But, when the photos came back and we learned we landed a space in this issue, all the hard work was worth it. See more at the links above!


2. Photoshoot in Wellfleet Bay

For this project, we flexed our Mid Century muscles as a team and I couldn’t be happier with the final product. An awesome deck house in the heart of Wellfleet Bay, this adventurous family brought us on to idealize their Scandinavian and mid century style dreams. Working with Hammer Architects to bring this deck house to life, we used pops of color and calming natural materials to blend the two styles our client loved. See more of this project in our portfolio and keep your eyes out this summer for it to hit the shelves.. shhh.


3. SYD Furniture Launch!

As we entered our third year with SYD+SAM, I made it a goal of mine to take this creative side hustle to the next level. To me, that was launching a custom furniture line! We now carry a completely custom furniture including sofas, chairs, and ottomans with four tiers of fabrics and leathers for any family’s needs. See more of these awesome pieces as our store’s website www.syd-and-sam.com

Holiday Hygge : Cozy Couch Styling For The Holidays

The season to hunker down and hygge up is here and I’ve been loving the nights in at home with my family. Not only is it fun to spruce the house up with holiday decor that now Toby is finally old enough to enjoy, but it inspires me to to style thoughtfully with the season in mind outside of work! The holidays are a time for breaking the rules. From delicious deserts that break diets to family movie nights that break bedtimes, the holidays are a feeling. I love spaces that enhance the feeling of the holidays while remaining stylish and surprising.

I pulled a few inspiring spaces that use texture and pattern, subtle greenery, and outstanding lighting as a means for bringing the holidays home and to stay inspired through these short days. Take a look at the rotating gallery below on some spaces I found that make holiday decor feel like its been there all year long and don’t forget shop our cozy favorites from SYD this season!

Keeping It Custom : Window Treatments

Window Treatments Are The Icing on the Cake..

It’s true. Window treatments can either be subtle and simple or bold and statement making. We’ve done both. The opportunity for fun or seriousness depends upon the room and the clients they’re chosen for. There’s one thing that they always need to be, and that is purposeful.

There’s so much to consider when choosing window treatments. I find so often as a designer that it is this part of the process that clients ask for help with most. They know the function they need but can’t quite see how a space can feel that much more complete with the right window treatment selection. And I love this part of the process!

Take a look through the various shade options we’ve used in some our projects and tips on how to use them below!

 

Roman Shades

Don’t be afraid to choose a fabric that is fun, even if it may scare you at first.

I promise, I promise, I promise, pattern is almost always a great choice for roman shades. Patterns and colors in roman shades pull together so many styling details in the space. This is the key to marrying function and style by offering privacy and a sense of completeness.

Drapery Panels

Go grand.

When the ceiling height and window style calls for it, go for long drapery panels. I love the length and elegance they give to a space. Drapery panel hardware also adds another decorative element that accentuates the room. Here’s a few of our favorites!
