Now Introducing, SYD+SAM!

Elizabeth Tobin

 I have to admit it's been a VERY busy few months. The dog days are definitely over and with a whirlwind of two seasons blending themselves together, I'm finding myself in a winter that feels more like spring with so many things to share. Our studio is almost finished and I've given our address a new face. I've always had a special appreciation for stunning boutiques. The small corner shops and colorful markets I've seen across Europe and America inspire my design aesthetic. I've carried them with me in every floor plan and rendering i've created and I'm excited to announce that I've curated one of my own.

 SYD+SAM is a home decor and personal accessory boutique curated from vendors i've followed and loved throughout my experience in the interior design industry. It's the accents and alterations that can make a house a home. SYD+SAM is an independent business that makes that claim and i'm happy to introduce it to you.

 The shops window displays act as a thumbnail of the store and are draped with a geometric yarn installation created by a great friend of mine Christine. With the freedom to separate this business from the firm, I hand picked each vendor for their artisan-ship and stand out products that pay attention to the little things. The shop sure stands on it's own. Full of statement furniture pieces like custom cabinets, local artwork, and hand pinched ceramics, SYD+SAM's doors are finally open after years of it being a dream. 

 Come by the shop and see what I've been up to all fall. SYD+SAM is open Tuesday through Sunday. 

Talk of the Party

Emily Pinney

While in Vermont for the holiday, our client's were throwing an open house party for their recently finished ski home. It was nice to be able to attend and see so many people enjoying the house.

The talk of the party was the chandelier over the dining table. It's a unique piece.

The view was important to our clients, so my challenge was to preserve this view through a light fixture. Given the requirements from the client, this was probably the more challenging fixture we had to select for the house.

We came across this light at Casa Design in Boston and knew it was perfect right away. The chandelier has 72 tiny bulbs strung together and suspended from the ceiling in an organic cluster, creating an eye catching sparkle where you can see directly through to the mountain view. 

The light is manufactured by Quasar and is designed by Jan Pauwels in Holland.

It really is something!

Can't wait to share with you more of this wonderful project!
