Throughout our research, we realized there was a great need to approach design as a full-circle solution that evoked all "5 senses." Our design approach not only includes beautiful sights, and touchable textures, but we make it our mission to incorporate delightful smells, enchanting sounds and even enticing edibles!
We also take the process a step further and go under the surface by doing our best to source sustainable products and materials that are safe for the environment, minimize the off-gassing of fumes, and are also energy efficient. Sustainability is at the core of our practices and we pride ourselves on sourcing products and materials from local vendors and distributors who also embrace sustainability. By thinking of design in this way, we will change the perception of what is needed to keep our households safe from the dangerous chemical solutions and products that we're used to...It's out with the old, and in with the new...we aim to change the narrative.
