A New Attitude: A Bathroom Stuck In The 80s Gets A Total Makeover

/
Trends and times, these two complementary forces move just about everything in design. When they work together, everything flows beautifully - the times change, and the trends change with them. As they do, we begin to love new kinds of furniture, reinterpret old patterns and find new ways to use colors. At the same time, the trends that develop, evolve and move on over a certain number of years define an era, one that influences and shapes all the eras that come after it. It’s a great system - when it works. But sometimes things get out of sync. Sometimes a home can get stuck in an era. We’ve all seen it happen - a kitchen that’s frozen in the 60s; a living room that time forgot. When it happens, it can be a challenge to see past the way things have “always” been and envision the space with a new life in the current era. But when you do it, the results are astounding.

Literary Design

/
At AphroChic, we love to design spaces that are narrative-driven, spaces that tell a story and where all of these various elements come into play. And one of our favorite storytelling accessories is books.

The Culture Of Color: A Philadelphia Home Transformed

/
Color is defined as "the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light.” Color is a sensation. It is personal. It is reflective. It is transformative. In the home, the right use of color can create an aesthetic. And bringing color home is as simple as starting with a can of paint.
