What's Trending This Fall

Well last week was just a whirlwind! Blackband made a pilgrimage to the NY Gift & Furniture Show (NYIGF), which for those who aren't familar is sort of like the September issue of Vogue for interior design - an overload of the latest styles and designs for Fall and 2013 furniture and decor. It always gets us so excited for what's to come. We've already started to incorporate some of the new ideas we saw into our designs and the showroom. Take a look at some of the highlights below. What's on your list for 2013 home design?

Come see what's new in our showroom !

We've had a very busy first half of the year with the launch of our online store, our feature in the OC Register on our Lido Island Showcasing, and of course working hard to create beautiful spaces for all our wonderful design clients! 

To keep us all inspired for second half of the year (how is it mid-July already!?), we've made sure to keep our showroom in Orange County filled to the brim with colorful new pillows, art and interesting furniture. If you haven't been by lately you're in for a treat! And even if you have, we're always receiving new items. See you soon!

agate fetish...do you "dig" it?

Have you jumped on the agate trend?? Check out these stones... how could you not fall in LOVE with these natural beauties!

 Find some color inspiration for your next design....


Or everyone needs a pair of bookends / "pop of color"  in the bookcase right?!

Why not rock the trend on your wrist.. a little gold always does an outfit good. 

Check out this Chandelier....however - looks a little dangerous. But gorgeous none the less :)

Need a new phone case?

We can ALWAYS find a place for more accessories! LOVE these neutral beauties....

 "Rock" it on your finger....

This may pop up in one of our interiors one day!

Do you "dig" it??

We are excited to announce the launch of Showcasing™, an interior design and furnishings service which is helping local real estate professionals to sell homes.

Blackband Design was recently hired by a well-known real estate company to complete two Showcasing™ projects at Crescent Del Sol, a private enclave of six luxury residences available for sale in Carlsbad, CA.

Blackband adapted the interior design to the architecture and style of each home, and incorporated high-end products to increase the visual appeal of each home, with outstanding results: two of the six residences at Crescent Del Sol were sold within two weeks of completing the project!

"We live in a visual world, and with so many beautiful homes on the market, people need to experience the livable elements of a home in order to make the decision to purchase," said Wendy Blackband. "We are excited to offer this new service as it gives us the creative freedom to share our unique, elegant style with future homeowners."

For more information about Blackband Design's new Showcasing™ Service, call us at (949) 872-2234 or visit the Blackband Design Website.

we have been busy!!

So these last few months we have been slammed with new clients, new designs, gathering new products, (a surprise for y'all), AND installs! And we couldn't be happier!

We are currently working on getting some professional photography done of our latest installs...so you will have to suffice with a very, very RAW sneak peak until then;


Did you know we can do anything CUSTOM in upholstery or wood work?? 

Here is a fabulous sofa we recently did for a client on the East Coast...

Contact US! We would love to talk design with you.
