July 20, 2021

Photo Credit: Christine Vroom Introducing the 3rd Place Winner of American Tin Ceilings’ Spring 2021 Photo Contest! It’s rare in Southern California for a homeowner to lean toward Southern charm. But that’s what designer Christine Vroom was tasked with in a recent ranch style renovation. The clients gave her free rein to design the interiors flavored by classic Georgian revival. It required lots of customized detail that was truly a designer’s dream project....

Creating Design Atmosphere Is All in the Details

July 7, 2021

How a space feels is just as important as how a space looks. They are like taste and smell; one is enhanced by the other. The beauty of creating design atmosphere is that it’s easy to do. A few details and you can transform a beautiful room into a place that creates its own experience. For instance, take this hot new restaurant/bar concept in Florida. The combination of Mediterranean seafood, handmade pasta, and custom drinks alone is enough to get some attention and good reviews....

From Meh to Marvelous

July 17, 2020

Michelle Carder disliked her bathroom for about eight years. And, just in case she hadn’t convinced her husband, Mike, of her disdain, she left some subtle hints. First came the intentional neglect of regular cleanings. Then, came the dust bunnies and an accumulation of creepy crawly things. But the pièce de résistance was the love letter—scratch that, hate mail—on the back of the bathroom door. Its poetic verse went like this: “So you say this is the last room to be remodeled … whatever”....
