I have walked through the spaces of a new commercial redesign job a number of times now and have consistently drawn the same conclusion. Creative, exciting and well thought out design is wonderful, but if the space is in need of purging, organization and streamlining, the new design elements lose their impact. As much as we are inclined to move forward, it can be equally important to take a step or two back in order to achieve the best possible end product. Sometimes this organizing step can be either too personal or so dauntingly large that it can be quite beneficial to hire a professional organizer. Truthfully, this type of service can actually save you money in the end as the design is not working around items that just don’t need to be there or be there is such abundance. Today I met with Karen from Details by Karen to review just such a project. Her experience and ideas will surely play an important role in this design project. Our conversation reinforced my belief that both minimizing and purposeful placement of household items, office items, etc. can dramatically affect the long term enjoyment of a space. Organization and design truly go hand in hand!

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!
