                                             Under the  Hood!!

                           Power and Purr....         

                                   A HOOD design with ATTITUDE


         Kitchen 'hoods' are now making a unique design statement...expressing one's self in an extrordinary way!

    Custom Image Interiors can design an exquisite hood...or you can choose from many options available...to match decor

                                                                       Lighting can add to overall effect!

     

 

                                                        Claudelle


The Claudelle is a highly decorative range hood. The opening of the shelf is highlighted by a succession of chiseled scalloped edges that draw the eye to the very soul of the kitchen, the hearth. The soft curves of the shelf offset the oversized dimension of the hood.


 



                                                  Garibaldi


 The Garibaldi is a monumental range hood with very strong yet streamlined architectural lines. The overall linear design of the breakfront shelf is offset by the gentle curves of the double recessed concave stack.

  The BAR STOOL!!!  Movers....and.....Shakers...
                                Ultimate Function
                 M  E  M  O  R  Y!!
When purchasing a bar stool with a back or arms...the SWIVEL function is a must have...but there are some important options to remember!  When using the bar stool...it needs to return to the proper position when not in use.  The bar stool with 'MEMORY' is the ultimate function for remembering!  No fussing!  No turning! No positioning!  Always RIGHT ON!!!


                            The seat has a memory swivel, which automatically returns to front-facing position when you stand up.
                                                                                                              Brilliant design!!

 

Did you know?? The Benjamin Moore Affinity Paint Colors, which were introduced in 2012, seamlessly harmonize with one another?  These colors were created to be used expressly with Benjamin Moore 'Aura' paint..the only paint on the market to offer proprietary ColorLock technology.  It's essential to revealing the richness, depth and balance of Affinity Colors. Available in a variety of finishes, Aura paint offers superior film durability, adhesion and is mildew and water resistant. Ask your professional about Affinity's excellent coverage for your next project!




 

  DESIGNER TIPS...your decor inspiration!

Creating WOW Factor:  Many of us have a preconceived idea about paneling...usually negative.  We think about the 70's and the stiff and formal Living Room or our grandmother's stuffy Dining Room.  Painting 'geometric' squares will give paneling a contemporary look. This approach gives your room a warm and livable interest.  Painting the paneling the same as adjoining walls...or giving it an added splash of color...dispels the age old myth that wood wall paneling is oppressive and dark.


Forgo Abundance of Lighting:  You do not need a 'picture light' over every piece of artwork...or directional spotlights hitting every corner of your room.  I believe in interesting lamps... which can be moved at a moment's notice.  Accessorizing a room can be splendid with a variety of shapes, heights and colors when choosing the lamps.  Placement is a key factor...and don't go over the top with too many.



 Murals:  Does a huge wall of murals seem daunting? Commission a smaller accent wall or canvas. There's an advantage to working with a muralist...you can choose all of the colors..being a bit more spontaneous with the design of your choice. The possibilities are endless!



A favorite mural water scene would be a perfect way to launch a nautical theme for a child's room.  You can commission a muralist to create one wall or a canvas, which you can move easily.

-Remember to pull the furniture off the wall a bit to let mural shine!

-Murals add architectural interest and whimsy!



 Wool Window Treatments: Who would ever dream of using 'wool' for a window treatment?  Wool is very appealing because it hangs beautifully.  It is a sturdy fabric and won't sag, deteriorate or fade.  Wool also cleans easily.  You can actually 'brush' it like a suit.  Using wool would be terrific in a casual dining area or library.  Wool can be purchased in a variety of thread counts..it can be as light or heavy as you prefer.  Dressing your window with wool is so 2015!!!  Try it!

 

                               Technology Shines......in the Interior Design Industry!

An Ancient Greek Philosopher  said a long time ago "The only constant is change"....and the recent change in the design industry points to TECHNOLOGY!  It's said that technology information is doubling every 10 years.  More and more products are coming to the forefront of the interior design industry and available to homeowners.

Custom Image Interiors works with industry partners who are on the cutting edge of their fields. We've all heard "it's not what you know...it's who you know".  We don't know everything about the latest innovations..but we know who to call to enhance or complete a project for our clients. 

                                                             If you can dream it.....we can do it!!
