                                     !!!!FIFTY SHADES OF GREY!!!!   

There are more than fifty shades of grey...and every single one was used in home decor from 2010 through 2019. Grey painted walls, wood stained floors, custom cabinetry, fabrics, carpet, rugs, accessories.....were synonymous with style..... and everyone jumped on the grey bandwagon.  Problem?  Grey very quickly became overplayed and it was found to be over used and over specified for design projects for over 10 years.  In the it eased into was paired with creamy whites.  After 2015...the grey hues were paired with different Shades of Grey!!!!   Do you think the GREY-ZY trend will be over in 2021?

According to the color trends for 2021...the year will be defined by soothing tones from blues to greens..from oranges to pinks. Both will be transitioning from the 'grey' hues from years past. It will be a gentle transition...since many colors already have grey undertones, which soften a deeper color choice.  Evoking calmness is the key to a relaxing environment.  By mixing color palettes...your interior will have the timely on-trend look for 2021!

  We inspire by our design at a time!

  DESIGNER TIPS...your decor inspiration!

Creating WOW Factor:  Many of us have a preconceived idea about paneling...usually negative.  We think about the 80's, 90's and the stiff and formal Living Room or seeing stuffy Dining Rooms.  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.

Abundance of Lighting....Snafu!!  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.  Remember...placement is a key factor...

                        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 match decor!

                                                                         Lighting can add to overall effect!





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 offset the oversized dimension of the hood.

Your KITCHEN is usually the focal point of your home...if you have an 'open floor plan'...enticing comfortable living! Make a SPLASH!!

The GIRIBALDI is an extraordinary range hood and designed with beautifully appointed architectural lines. The 'breakfront' shelf is especially attractive and offsets the gentle curves of the concave facade.

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 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!

 Murals:  Does a huge wall of murals seem daunting? Commission a smaller accent wall or canvas. There's an advantage to working with a 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.
