Doing some schematic design for a classic Georgian beauty and channeling this entry millwork/railing situation from our previous #bonniebraerebuild - excited to be working on this new construction project, and can’t wait to give it some of its own gorgeous architectural details!

Natural Coral ❤️🌊
Coral is not a mined stone or mineral, but an organic gemstone. It is the hardened, skeleton-shaped result of secretions continuously deposited by marine polyps. It looks like a colorful underwater plant, but it is actually a priceless gift from the sea.
Coral has protective healing energies for women and children. It can help with issues associated with the circulatory system. It can also help with strengthening the bones and nourishing the blood.
This is room started as a massive empty canvas & ended up being one of my favorite spaces to date💕 We’re hosting 3 shoppable events in Boulder this weekend so this room & many others are just waiting for you to see! Check out @guesthouseshop’s page for details🥂 // 📷 @kyliefitts

“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”
-Rachel Naomi Remen
While I’ve been trying to practice time away from my phone—I am grateful of the privilege to be connected to so many people. Through talk, text, social media, we are capable of accessing a world of knowledge, and are provided the opportunities to share our ideas. I see this platform in particular as a space where I can express my individuality, collaborate, connect, grow, gather inspiration, and so much more. From watching businesses grow, to seeing beautiful art, to Face-timing my Ma & Papa, to sharing Sophia the Pug videos with my sister––there’s a lot happening on these little rectangles!
I find myself lucky to be partnering with @visiblemobile — an amazing phone service that’s only $40 bucks a month *insert dancing animal gif* *insert happy parent smile* that keeps me up to date with the latest family happenings, where I can ask my friends for art critique via text (yes we do that––constantly), where I can laugh at an old resurfaced vine, or learn more about what sign the moon is in right now…I got the service, and a price that gives me the chance to connect with all you pretty neat people. ANYWAY — happy Friyay, as they say.

Another “before” and “after” of our #washparkrefresh for you! We wanted to update the kitchen without allocating too much of the budget since the client needed a lot of furniture.
: : :
The cabinets were in good shape, so we kept the layout and they got a coat of paint & some new hardware. We liked the countertops as well (absolute black granite perimeter and concrete island top...what’s not to like?) so they stayed. The client was craving personality & visual interest in the kitchen so we added a textual white clay brick tile to the entire wall. We then freshened the look with contemporary stools and hand-blown glass pendants. Added bonus? This “refresh” was a far faster turnaround than a full-blown remodel!

Speaking of modernist architecture seamlessly blending into the surrounding landscape, Charles Haertling’s design for the Menkick House serves as a great local example of the craft. We love that Haertling found inspiration behind modern theory and forms, aligning this house with the rock outcropping on site.
From all of us here at The Dove Agency, we continue to be moved and inspired not only by the work you are doing, but the driving forces behind it; your motivation and your why. Although there are new and exciting projects happening all over the US and beyond that illustrate the beauty designers create, we know that your greatest impact is not on the physical spaces of your designs. It goes much deeper than that. We are passionate about knowing how designers are dedicating their time and talents to impact the lives of the people living in and around the splendor they create, and we want to do our part in sharing your stories. Head over to our blog by clicking the link in our bio, and learn more about our Designer Spotlight Series and what it’s all about. If you or someone you know has a compelling story you think needs to be shared, send us a DM. We wold love to hear from you!
This beautiful brand made its recent debut, and today’s an inside look at some of the key brand elements that brought this one to life.
Embarking on a new brand journey or design project can sometimes leave you feeling a little anxious wondering, “Will a graphic designer really understand and capture the vision and style I have for my business?”
At Pier 9, I understand those common concerns and offer a complimentary consultation to discuss your specific design needs, challenges you may have experienced in the past, what sets you apart in the marketplace, what you aspire to become and so much more to put those fears at ease. And together, we’ll create meaningful and effective designs you can be proud of for years to come!
