INSTUDIO Design Direction SUMMER 2011

Summer brings to mind warm weather (unless you live in San Francisco), water, the colors of sand, blue skies, travel & outdoor living. INSTUDIO Design Directors are both artists & interior designers and for design inspiration we start our summer journey by looking through our studio window at lush green trees. Rather than relying on trends to forecast what summer means to us, we look at things that we find interesting while developing interior design direction for our residential & business clients.

Certain things say summer to us. Some of these that bring summer home include…
