We are using soft greens as the base for this scheme. If you aren’t sure what colors to use in your space sometimes it helps by picking that “thing” you just love… whether it be an art piece, pillow, etc. We just loved the colors in this art piece we got at Round Top. The base color is a soft green - so we started there.Read More
Behind The Design - Camden Residence
Master Bedroom & Sitting Area
A before and after is way too much fun to show ! We met with this client and her mom and they have such a sweet, close relationship. The home we are helping with was actually the clients childhood home. There was something so special getting to help with a home that was part of the family… it was built in the early 1970’s.
I mean how fun is this space??? When we first met with this client we learned she loved color but loved traditional pieces as well.Read More

This Thursday we are inspired by a local artist, Lisa Krannichfeld. We recently came across her work while on Facebook, and fell in love.
She was born and raised here in Little Rock, into a mix of Southern American and Chinese cultures. These cultures and traditions have greatly impacted her work, especially when the woman is the subject. Lisa gives the women in her paintings power and a voice, challenging the mindset to serve and suppress, common in the south and Chinese cultures. Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink along with watercolor in an uncontrolled, free flowing manor.
She is currently working on a new collection called, Dressed, that she will exhibit sometime in May at the M2 Gallery in Little Rock. We love the way the strong patterns play with the soft, flowing watercolor.
Lisa has been featured in multiple publications. Some of those include The Jealous Curator, Anthology Magazine, and was recently named the "One to Watch" by the Saatchi Art Magazine.
Here in Arkansas, Soiree' has named here a "Woman to Watch".
Her work is included in many private and corporate collections worldwide.

Does Lisa's work inspire you like it does us?

It's another snowy Monday at Providence Design, but that doesn't keep us from dreaming about Spring!
We wanted a fresh new look for the front of the store... so color it is. We love mixing different design styles and elements... like the modern art paired with the more classic look of the console.
The art is all original's by artist Peter Keil. We love the style of his work. We have the four brightly colored pieces shown here, as well as some that are just black and white. They are just fabulous!
The blue and white ginger jars mixed with the blue and white candles brought in more color, alongside the latest Veranda coffee table book and faux Kalanchoe plants.
The perfect mix for a wonderful Spring vignette at the front of our store.
Are you ready for Spring and the colors it brings?
Its your turn. Lets Talk!
We have worked all summer on a living room for a client. It finally came together yesterday!
All three of us spent all day at the house transforming the space, so when the client returned it would be complete, down to every detail.
Lets take a look at some of the before pics!
We started with all new furniture and accessories. The client was really wanting a lighter fresher look with pops of color.
We found a fabulous original abstract art piece that was full of color. We built the rest of the room around the piece!
Below you can see the artwork hanging above one of the two new white sofas.
The second matching sofa is directly across the room.
We used the coffee table and two ottomans to anchor the space and fill in the width of the room. The ottomans can be pulled closer to the second sofa for propping feet up, or moved around the room for extra seating.
We decided to gallery hang the wall behind the second sofa to help fill in the space. We used two abstract prints, as well as an original abstract by another local artist. To add some dimension we finished it with two deer antlers mounted on white plaques.
The garden stool is used to service the sofa like a side table would.
The blue velvet and linen striped pillows, combined with the green silk and blue monogram of the other pillows paired perfectly with all the art.
Finally we started from scratch with the fireplace mantel. We wanted it to have a collected over time look, rather than just another piece of art, so we started with a starburst mirror, sprayed gold. Next we added an original black and white abstract art piece by an artist who studied under Picasso. To anchor the other side we used a blue glass bottle filled with clippings from the clients yard, and a piece of white coral.
In front of the fireplace sit two beautiful new chairs in a white geometric fabric.
We all had so much fun with this project, and love to see how it all comes together.
What do you think of this before and after?
Its your turn. Lets talk!
