This project had an unusual work process for us. Typically, the paint color comes in last in the planning process and plays a role of the backdrop to a painstakingly chosen elements in the room. This time, the relaxed blue color of the wall was what dictated the whole project.
We often like to explore options beyond of what our clients ask us. We had a client who was remodeling a hair salon and asked us for help with the flooring. In her mind, she saw a traditional black and white checkerboard pattern. In our minds, that option was of course classic, but also kind of predictable. Especially because the space was neither traditional, nor predictable.
We helped to re-imagine a 23 year-old bathroom design in South Loop. Take a look at the results.
I bet when you think about an office, you imagine something gloomy and tired. It does not have to be that way! We enjoyed working on a downtown office remodel where we got to consider interesting patterns, textures, and colors in the process. The pictures below show some of our behind-the-scenes color mock-ups for the project.
Since KaMiKo Design Studio is a two woman shop, the same goes for our blog. Both of us, Mila and Katya, throw pearls of our acquired design wisdom in here. They often get combined with some fun life experiences, awesome things we go ga-ga over, and cool products we fall in love with along the way.
