We believe that the best homes are rich with the story of what brings you a feeling of rest and restoration.
And it is our pleasure to work with you in making this happen!
Our Design Philosophy
Like a person, your house is alive with it's story, both past, present and future. Memories of wonderful times spent at a favorite place or destination are some of the richest we have. Or maybe it is a story of a place not yet visited, but dreamed about. Design and decorating should be a reflection of that story, along with your own personal passions and interests, which go beyond decorating trends.
At Salt Flower Studio, we listen to both the story that the building is trying to tell and to your own, creating a personal narrative of your space that includes a feeling of getting away from it all. This becomes the focus of our design and decor approach to your home.
We become your storyteller, using elements and principles of art and classic design (space, scale, color, shape, proportion, rhythm, unity, harmony, balance, focus) to tell that narrative and to form the backbone that makes for a timeless space that speaks to the soul, creating a place that you are happy to be in!
Family and Friends
Joy is amplified when you have someone to share it with! That is why our style really focuses on how you live in your space with your family and friends, what you enjoy doing together, and how you want to make memories.
We all know that beauty has the ability to lift our spirits and bring us joy. But, creating a beautiful home can challenging! Decisions about what to buy, what to get rid of, what to keep can keep you spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. We understand the fundamentals of what makes a space beautiful and can guide you on that journey.
The world can be a chaotic place, which is why creating a sense of refuge and a place for renewal is so important for your home to give you. When you feel restored mentally, emotionally and physically, you have more to give others and the ability to do your best.
A home should be welcoming, no matter if it just for your own family or a group of friends and neighbors who enjoy each other's company. Finding the right mix of furniture, colors, textures, room layouts and lighting set the stage for a place that no one will want to leave.
When your home is functional, you feel you have the space to store and use the things that are important to you, you feel you can use a space the way you need it to and that everyone can move about with ease.
Uncovering what is important to you and your family and making sure that story is told will always be an important part of how we create your perfect place.
Elements of nature inspire your creativity, to transport you back to a beloved place, or simply to make you feel more grounded and relaxed. Taking a cue from the bounty and sensuality of nature, the environment draws in all the senses, creating a playground for a whole experience.
Timeless design means you will be happy with your choices years from now because they are rooted in classic design elements that stand the test of time.
No matter what kind of project or budget, our overall design philosophy is the same. We prefer to go with quality over fast and easy and we prefer timeless over trends. We lean toward a coastal vibe in our go-to colors, with blues, whites, aquas, teals and the carefully considered bright pops of color to keep it interesting and lively. We love to incorporate layering textures, like stone and wicker, in neutral tones to bring nature inside. Whenever possible, we like to support local and regional artisans with artwork to make our designs one-of-a-kind. In the end, our aim to to elevate your everyday lifestyle and create a well designed home that stands the test of time.
"Without a compelling story to animate a house, it's all just real estate and shopping."
