Top of the Strand

On May 25, The Strand Hotel NYC hosted a press preview along with Trina Turk for Schumacher and Marks & Frantz to celebrate the opening of the newly designed Top of the Strand. The rooftop was decked out in Trina Turk’s latest indoor/outdoor fabrics for Schumacher. We think the bold fashion-inspired prints made a huge splash.

Show Off Your Schumacher: Wallcovering Contest Winners

Thank you to all of the talented designers who sent in their work. We were inspired by the range of submissions and loved seeing how each design showcased a Schumacher statement wallcovering. It was difficult to choose from all of the incredible projects. Congratulations to the winners on their outstanding entries:

TOP WINNER

Bronwyn Poole
Touch Interiors – Mosman, Australia
Imperial Trellis in Trelliage, 2707212
Bronwyn PooleBronwyn Poole established Touch Interiors, a residential design firm based in Mosman, Australia, in 1998 and continues to serve as the Head Designer and Company Director.

In Poole’s winning design, which she refers to as “The Travellers Sanctuary,” she wanted to create a home for a world traveling couple with an interest in collecting beautiful objects from their adventures. Schumacher’s Imperial Trellis in Trelliage creates the biggest impact in the space and encompasses the bohemian spirit Poole envisioned for this scheme. Also shown is Trina Turk’s Indoor/Outdoor fabric, Tangier Frame Print in Sea Grass.

 

HONORABLE MENTION

Renée LeJeune Hallberg
RLH Studio – Minneapolis, Minnesota
Albero Floreale in Aqua, 5003622
Renee LeJeune HallbergRenée LeJeune Hallberg, the Owner and Principal Designer of RLH Studio, believes that having beautiful interiors isn’t enough. It has to also work for her clients’ lifestyles.

For this redesign, Hallberg felt Albero Floreale in Aqua was the perfect wallcovering to bridge the master bath and master bedroom. The wallcovering offers luxury and elegance while at the same time it provides a beautiful spa-like presence. The scale of the flowers enhances the Venetian plastered, barreled ceilings and dictates the accent paint color for the makeup vanity.

HONORABLE MENTION

Christopher Kennedy
Christopher Kennedy, Inc – Palm Springs, California
Chiang Mai Dragon in Aquamarine, 5001060
Christopher KennedySince founding his firm, Christopher Kennedy Inc. in 2005, Christopher has emerged as a fresh voice in home furnishings and interior design. Known for his unique brand of luxurious modernism, Kennedy’s work has been published in Architectural Digest, Dwell, LUXE Magazine, and The Los Angeles Times, among others.

For this 1960s modern home in Palm Springs, Christopher Kennedy selected Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Dragon in Aquamarine as a detailed and dramatic backdrop for the guestroom. Known for his fresh approach to glamorous modernism, Kennedy paired the Chiang Mai wallpaper with an oversized Moroccan headboard in lime green and vintage lamps true to the era of the home.

HONORABLE MENTION

Kippie Leland
Leland Interiors, Inc – Nashville, Tennessee
Ming Cherry Blossom in Aqua, 5001070
Kippie LelandKippie Leland, Owner/Designer of Leland Interiors, worked with her father Ted Leland until his retirement in 1997. She describes her personal style as “a collected look using pieces softened by age, beautiful fabrics, and touches of quality.”

The concept for this master bath was to create a cool oasis, a spa-like retreat for a southern couple. Schumacher’s Ming Cherry Blossom in Aqua perfectly complemented the Imperial Danby marble throughout the bathroom. Additionally, the pattern is reminiscent of the Dogwood Tree that is so prevalent in Nashville.

New York Fashion Week: Street Style

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, the runway shows promise design dedicated to fall fashions, yet what caught our eye was the street style of the fabulous attendees. From shaggy coats to zebra printed jackets, textured prints were the key inspiration.

We are also seeing this trend in interiors with more animal printed fabrics and wallcoverings than ever. Ranging from leopard spots to tiger stripes, these prints promise to transform any space into the most luxurious and exotic of escapes.

Here’s to the fashionable women of NYC that turn the sidewalks into catwalks.

A Toast to Trina Turk

This week, guests at Schumacher in DCOTA fell madly in love with Trina Turk’s second indoor/outdoor fabric collection and of course with Trina!

The stunning fashion designer was all smiles as she shopped her fabric and fashion (provided by the Trina Turk store in Bal Harbour, Florida) in the Schumacher showroom.  Along with lunch, a signature cocktail was served, inspired by and named for the vibrant clothes, jewelry, and handbags featured in her new Catalina Getaway line!
