Interiors Department Wins Impromptu Design Competition

A recent contest was held and sponsored by Mohawk Flooring and DalTile promoting some new products. 

Designers were given an hour to put together a product design scheme in an hour.  

Interior Designers Sarah Anning and Christina Parisi decided to play on the name of the carpet "State of Mind" for their scheme and write-up.

LIVE THE DAY: Taking it from Day to Night

As spring begins to hatch, ladies are making the transition with outfits that go from day to night with bright, flirty & fun pops of color.

Warm & cool neutrals will get you through the work-day, but in order to spice up your evening you’ll need to toss in a vibrant clutch or sassy lipgloss. 

Keep that ‘little black dress’ as your baseline and epitomize the high power–meets-high polish of the city’s chicest with the latest trends in accessories. 

Your style reflects your  State of Mind.
