Make It Your Own

A great cocktail table with four wedge-shaped, faux leather ottomans like the one above has a terrific clean-lined style!  Additionally, the four pull out ottomans are an instant way to add seating to any room let alone a room that may not allow for tons of seating on a daily basis.    The faux leather looks nice, but why not purchase a piece like this and adapt it to your room’s decor?   I purchased this piece, inexpensively I might add, and reupholstered the seats to further coordinate an apartment model’s living room.  The addition of cording to both the top and bottom of the cushions makes the whole piece look more expensive.   By just changing the fabric and adding detail to the upholstery work, the table went from ordinary to custom with very little additional expense.  So go ahead.  Make it your own!

Our design philosophy is to approach both simple and complex design projects with equal care, while providing the highest quality work within the proposed budget and timeline. The design experience we provide prioritizes strong communication, heightening the important relationship between designer and client. Our interiors exude a classically fresh and uncluttered personality. Easy-going elegance joined with sentiment and function are what give our designs enduring appeal.

Monday Morning Muse

At Carlisle Design, we seek continuous inspiration for both whole concepts and small details.  The creative community around is an important resource to our team, because the new products and ideas in design complement our classic and timeless spaces with an updated and fresh aesthetic.  This is why we started Monday Morning Muse.  No more of the Monday morning blues—unless we’re talking paint swatches! On Instagram each week we share a product or design concept that has inspired our work recently.  We hope by sharing these with you that one (or a few!) may inspire you to rethink your bathroom, living room, bedroom, or kitchen; we know that sometimes it takes just one piece to make a space feel fresh.  Our curated collection of goods are elements we have incorporated into our work that we believe are more than just quality—they are inspirational.  We aren’t doing this as sponsors or promoters of the brands and stores, either.  Our Monday Morning Muse project is simply an opportunity for us to share with you the inspiration we have found in all the creativity around us so that you can see from where we source our ideas when they manifest themselves in your homes and businesses!
