It’s spring already, and the budding trees, sunshine, and warm temperatures are making the air electric! If you’re like us, you’re eager to venture out, do some spring cleaning, and get some fresh inspiration and design tips for a new season. And there’s no better time for it than now: the web is abuzz with new ideas!
Have you heard of Pinterest or Houzz? Two words that would have sounded like nonsense a year ago are now a couple of the biggest names in social media! These networks enable you to create profiles where you can gather online imagery into groups. By saving photos or sites you like, “Pinners” and “Houzzers” can share unique tastes with others and accumulate inspirations that may influence your own project later on. Take a closer look at a couple of Synergy’s profiles below.
Also check out an amazing kitchen remodel that we just finished, featuring a traditional style. Even without any changes to the floorplan, new finishes and fixtures gave the space a bold new look.
Last, our exploration of unique commercial design continues in a new article by proposing a few specific ideas to help your workplace bloom.
Creating Inspired Commercial Spaces
We often hear from our commercial or corporate clients that they are seeking an interior with a fresh look – “Something different!” they say, “Not your typical office.” While this is undoubtedly the appeal heard from many a business owner these days, few clients know exactly what they are looking for when they toss out descriptions such as ‘sleek,’ ‘exciting’ or ‘different.’
In a lagging and thus ultra-competitive economy, any and every step that can be taken to place oneself ahead of the competition is considered. Up-to-date interior design that is stunning and memorable can be just as great a competitive edge as professional marketing and good business practices. Read more…
furniture, and some artwork and design details are
all that’s needed to complete the space!
Hot New Arlington Restaurant Gets a Bayou Feel
“Before” and “during” photos of the soon-to-be Chasin’ Tails cajun seafood restaurant give you a behind-the-scenes “sneak peak” into the process of commercial construction.
Check out the cool color palette of sea blues and vintage browns, combined with a wood-paneled bar evoking an old dock. Other unique features include sleek glass pendants, a huge bar for sports lovers, and an attention-grabbing concrete sink “wash station” for messy hands right in the dining room.
2011 Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award for Leesburg Kitchen!
This past month, we were thrilled to receive a Contractor of the Year (CotY) award in the “Residential Kitchen $50,000 to $100,000” category. CotY awards are issued by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), and recognize excellence in aesthetics, functionality, superior craftsmanship, and the meeting of client needs.
This stunning Leesburg kitchen garnered the second place “Merit” award, in the most competitive category of 22 entries! See photos of the award-winning kitchen here!
Product of the Month
Take a look at this innovative product from Toto that brings the environmentally friendly aspects of automatic faucets to a whole new level. According to the website, the faucet is “engineered to require no electricity or routine disposable battery replacement”; instead, it uses a small turbine in the pipes to capture energy from the water flowing through it. The high-efficiency energy cells complete their charge with as few as 5 uses, and while the faucet comes with a battery back-up, its life expectancy increases dramatically with increased faucet usage. An ingenious idea for saving both water and electricity!
