We’re at the turn of a season, Spring is coming to a near close as Summer approaches. With thoughts of somber rain clouds, and tranquil showers leading to delicate blooms these five Designer’s Guild wallpapers genuinely capture the perfect essence of Spring. Featuring soft white and gray tones, as well as deep and lighter hues of ultra violet.

Beginning with the showers, Delahaye Zinc, and Corneille Fuchsia represent the velvety gray clouds of April. Delahaye Zinc uses abstract paint formations ranging from white and gray speckles to dramatic strokes and drizzles like rain washing away the blue sky.

It’s astounding that there is finally a solution to the age-old problem of being able to finish a design space or project within a short time period. Designers and consumers have struggled for years when dealing with a tight time frame and deadlines that approach way too quick.

With our new Curated Kravet arrivals, all of the items are sitting in stock and waiting to be shipped to you. On top of this, at L.A. Design Concept’s we’re proud to announce we also offer Free Shipping on this entire collection.  We know there’s nothing better then saving time and money, which is why we work closely with major Interior Design Labels to offer incredible products.

Some highlights of the new Curated Kravet collection include light fixtures with natural stone finishes. We picked the “Eliana Table Lamp” and the “Camilla Table Lamp”. Both feature similar color schemes in ivory, beige and cream. The Camilla table lamp is detailed with nickel plated solid brass hardware. The Eliana table lamp has a unique cream and gray wash finish that resembles sedimentary stones and gives off an elegant natural vibe. Each is hand made in the USA. Mixing natural elements into interior design is a direction we definitely recommend trying out. You can turn any indoor space into a zen area with these pieces that remind us of the tranquility of the outdoors.

Eye Catching Blue and White Fabric Choices

blue and white textiles

Hello there, and Happy Monday from L.A. Design Concepts! Today we’re going to be discussing some fun and modern patterns designed in one of time’s most tried and true color combinations: blue and white.

Let’s face it, who hasn’t seen a simple blue and white striped ‘nautical’ inspired print? It’s an effective classic done many times before. Since these colors work so well together, we’d like to highlight some great pattern applications that stray away from the ordinary and help your design moment truly stand out from the rest.

To start things off we’re going to break down each of these less traditional blue and white pattern choices starting from top left, and heading downward.

VICTORIA HAGAN - Summer Square - Indigo / Periwinkle
VICTORIA HAGAN – Summer Square – Indigo / Periwinkle

This Victoria Hagan textile, “Summer Square” is great for a couple different reasons. This pattern plays with circle and square geometric hollow shapes differentiating from a darker blue and a softer sky blue and is arranged in a checkerboard style that draws your eye all over it. Due to the hollow shapes, it isn’t too harsh to look at, and the use of negative white space makes the entire pattern more relaxing and fun. It gives off a retro geometric feel that is playful and appealing.

Our Osborne & Little Spring textile Top Picks

Spring has definitely already sprung, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late embrace the mood of the season. We’ve chosen some of our favorite textiles / fabrics / wallpapers from Osborne and Little collection.  All of these textiles can be used as wallpaper when paper-backed, so if you’re not upholstering for a project, you could transform that washroom into a mid-Spring night’s dream. For our inspiration we drew from different shades and hues of raspberry. As well as bold geometric patterns that can define a new beginning for anyone looking for that fresh start at this point in the year.

Our first pick is Osborne & Little’s ‘Japonerie’. Would you even be able to consider this a Spring textile top picks list without a floral? Of course not. However, we chose not to go to the obvious picks of lilies, daffodils,  or your typical rose print. This Asian inspired floral print features soft clusters of flowers amidst light wood branches.

Here is an image of the sapphire ‘Japonerie’ as a decorative cushion, and paper-backed as wallpaper. The combination of the light grey neutrals and the sapphire floral really just looks stunning.

The patches of floral differentiating in size draws your eye all over the print, not leaving any room for a single dull moment. The gray beige backdrop really makes the flowers pop, and the white crane flying among the trees is an elegant detail we’re obsessed with. Available in 3 other color-ways : sapphire, cyan, and burnt orange so you don’t have to compromise.

Depicted in our gallery are some of the highlighted Kravet accessories that are hot in the interior design world currently. Also the back drop of each image is a part of a small series of custom paintings titled “Island”. The paintings are made to order in the USA and go in line with the rest of the accessory collection.

The collection also has a array of differentiating candle holders. Candle lighting is a house feature that many overlook, but it is one of the oldest traditions and one of our top beloved form of lighting. There’s nothing quite like a softly candle lit room to set a sultry or even relaxing mood.

We believe the next step of uplifting any area is correctly and tastefully utilizing the wall space. Whether it be an art-deco mirror, an abstract painting, or even some mounted lights, they can all bring your walls to life.

In addition to this ‘Island’ series, there are limited edition framed prints within the collection. The prints are from Kravet’s archive located in Bethpage, New York and come with serials of authenticity. They feature many different floral motifs and depictions of nature scenery incorporating wildlife and other natural wonders.

There’s nothing worse than a beautifully furnished room with lacking significant or statement pieces. Out of 224 Ready to Ship Curated Kravet accessories, we think you’ll have no problem picking out the right pieces to bring your home to another level of interior decor.

For some simple starters, we pair the small and large geode onyx boxes in spaces such as the washroom. These elegant details are inspiriting and can really bring out vibrancy in a place you wouldn’t normally expect.

Some may think the extreme contrasts of black and gold isn’t for everyone, but we know it can be added and appreciated when done appealingly. In a space lacking interest, black and gold is bold. We love this Curated Kravet bowl atop gold leaf covered branches. It provides a nature meets luxury premonition that we love.

Once you place an order for any of these accessories, rather than waiting for it to be made like most designer furniture they are all in stock and awaiting your request. This means you get to skip the wait as well as enjoy free shipping.

L.A. Design Concepts: Our Story

Our story begins in 1987 when founder and designer Frank Keshishian launched L.A. Design Concepts, a residential interior design firm.

While Mr. Keshishian was busy designing interiors for his clients, he came to recognize a fast growing market of consumers who preferred to make their own design decisions. Understanding that desire, Frank created the first design service offering consumer access to designer “trade only” furnishings.
