  • Design & Style - Current | Martha Dayton Design

    Design & Style Inspiration is everywhere. We’re collecting our favorite things and assembling a designer diary that will highlight the elements that influence our design and style. Check back for new posts. DIARY #01 Relax & Rejuvenate Entering 2020 with a relaxed vibe. Cleaning up spaces and finding inspiration to sooth the start of the new century. Including: neutral colors, cozy textures and organic design that strike just the right balance. COLOR: Rose We love nothing more than a fresh beginning and a clean slate. The beauty of pink, in varying shades, may no longer be the hero palette au currant, but, it’s still providing inspiration for us. A soothing balance for the senses upon entry to 2020. We chilled on a recent adventure with a glass of sparkling rosé (Bottega Rose Gold) and got warmed up with tactile coziness in soft wintery hues (Rosemary Hallgarten). DESIGN: Refined Simplicity Clean, natural materials and shapes are our heroes. No match-matchy here, just perfectly designed. Wood stools (Jason Home), sculpt seating from nature and blur the line of utility and artisan craft. A layer of organic novelty is well-appointed with this ceramic lamp (Eny Lee Parker) making custom made by Mother Nature more than just inspiration. VIBE: Clean Scene The environment is refreshed and centered with a smooth, simple tableau that makes home feel like a vacation “away”. We found inspiration in the extension (and elevation) of a natural woven texture in lighting. A wonderful complement in this pristine white space. Check out one of our favorite woven lamps, the cloud (Roost). A natural wonder of layers, lightness and beauty.
