Serving Up Style Colorfully Designed Spaces

Today's blog comes to you from Associate Designer, Alison Van Delden, who tells us about Serving Up Style's, COLORbomb.
We are so proud of the outcome of the COLORbomb explosion! It has become a huge conversation piece and sparked an audience that is outside of our "normal" look. This was GHID's third year participating in Serving Up Style, from past experience, our goal was to focus on a few partnering key vendors and let their product speak for itself while melding into our concept.

We teamed up with Patrick Richardson of Murrayhill Remodeling for the construction of our booth. With professionalism and accuracy, our booth came together seamlessly (literally & figuratively). From the Cascade Coil Drapery, to the abstract Yolo Colorhouse paint faux-exposed brick mural wall that was painted by Five Star Faux Finishes, our partnering vendors embraced our colorful vision with no hesitation.

Katayama Framing & Murdoch Collections loaned us their artwork from their impressive inventory, they not only have an amazing artwork on hand but also created all the beautiful frames that house these one-of-a-kind pieces.

Custom Interior Spaces took our vision of a floating, minimalistic sideboard cabinet and created one of our favorite pieces. Equipped with a inset tray for barware, this is definitely a versatile conversation piece that's both practical and functional.

Chown Hardware loaned us the geometric LED fixtures that brightened up our technicolor space. These fixtures from Sonneman Lighting are not only decorative but put out an amazing amount if light with less wattage combined than a standard incandescent flushmount fixture. LED's are the future (in case you haven't heard yet)!

On the DIY side of things, I had a lot of fun manipulating materials like washi tape and feathers into decorative items for the home that make you take a second glance. We used feather boas (bought in bulk) to construct the insanely colorful rug.

Although not the most practical item you could introduce into your home, the colors and textures added so much life to our space! Portland Millwork donated a hollow-core door (along with the stellar base and crown molding) and this became the base for our table. Running washi tape perpendicular to the table, we were able to create an incredible table top that anything but ordinary.
