Keep your decor in proportion. In this designer model home, everything in the bathroom is grand, from the oversized spa shower and clawfoot tub to the picture window and adjacent wall. When you have a sizeable wall in a prominent spot, fill it with a massive canvas painting or framed artwork. Whether it’s your own original art, an affordable painting from an undiscovered artist at a local arts festival or a piece found at a thrift shop, flea market or home decor store, you can find large artwork for all budgets.
Bling out an existing or repurposed light fixture by adding crystal garland and gorgeous glass droplets to get the look of a crystal chandelier without the cost. You also could repurpose crystals from another fixture.
Designers in Eastmark were tasked with creating a series of park structures to fit into a planned development community that could serve as a gathering space for community members and a venue for special events. This larger pavilion space creates a great space for congregating on a cool fall evening, while the sort of "blank canvas" design, with the only fixed detail of the interior space being the fire pit", allows for the perfect venue for a special event.
This pavilion is perfectly situated on the edge of the grassy space. This allows community members a great view of the grass in case of a special event such as an outdoor concert or simply watching the neighborhood kids play a game of baseball in the summer. Out of the fray of the main action, this pavilion is a cool place for an intimate gathering or simply a cool hangout spot.
The Eastmark Community wanted a series of structures within the park that would complement the natural materials used in the planned development, so designers chose elements that would nod to the site's historical, agricultural past. Raw steel, concrete, stone and other natural materials symbolically mirror the agricultural structures that once dotted the rural desert landscape. Historically, indigenous settlements sprouted up along rivers, so this stream running through the park area gives a peaceful nod to the ancient landmarks that would have existed many years removed in history.
The height of this modern pavilion gives depth and dimension to the design of the Eastmark Community space. In the front of the outdoor space, this pavilion serves as sort of an entry gate and a focal point, drawing the eye to the pavilion's elegant steel construction that functions as a work of art situated atop the elegantly design pavilion.
