Lee Jofa Fabric’s interpretation
This pattern from Groundworks Fabric features a highly textured and detailed portrayal of rich gem tones mixed with warm and cool brushstroke like stripes. This abstract print features the silhouettes of butterflies scattered through out. In addition to this wildly colorful print, there is also a more cool and neutral rendition available.
Designers Guild Fabric’s interpretation
Mirrored Butterflies – Parchment by Designers Guild Fabric is a highly detailed allover print depicting a wide variety of different butterfly species. In the room shot provided, you notice how gorgeous the details are in each motif of the print almost as if they are straight out of National Geographic. If you look closely you can also see the fabric being used as drapes in the background of the photo. The mixture of bright colors and geometric positioning atop crème is delightfully refreshing. Hope you enjoyed this trend spotlight, until next time!

Welcome to Caitlin Mociun’s 917 square foot Brooklyn condo. Mociun currently resides here with her husband Tammer Hijazi. Mociun originally purchased this stripped down apartment in 2015, after a year she moved in, but she didn’t get to decorating straight away. “I typically tried to avoid décor the incorporated color, so the couch was a bit of surprise for me”, Mociun jokes. She took what we like to call an ‘organic’ approach to decorating. Instead of trying to plan the entire condo’s décor and design straight away, she built it’s design and structure piece by piece. Using this method, the space has a sense of style and character that can’t be achieved by any interior designer, it’s a home that tells a story of Caitlin and her taste. Using her eye for design, Mociun has collected a number of artful accessories from all over, not just home décor stores, hardware stores, flea markets, you name it, you can find gems just about anywhere. Check out the rest of the shots of their space below.

Difference between Wall Mural and Wallpaper?
Typically Wall Murals are available in large panels that you piece together like a puzzle to create whatever size arrangement you desire. Wallpaper on the other hand is typically sold in rolls and by the yard. For this reason, you usually need to know your exact space to make sure a Wall Mural such as these will fit into your space.
Large Scale Beauty
An advantage of using the application of Wall Murals is the grand scale of artwork you can display. As pictured above in ‘World Map‘, the entire vicinity of the wall is covered in minimal artistic beauty, not a single repeat in sight. This type of wall décor tends to be favored in more modern settings.
This pastel sorbet color scheme on the walls provides a soft and ambient vibe to this minimal interior. The panel-style installation of this wall mural ensures that the color has a subtle gradient from top to bottom creating a serene setting for relaxation.

Our story begins in 1987 when founder and designer Frank Keshishian launched L.A. Design Concepts a residential interior design firm.
While Mr. Keshishian designed homes for his clients, he recognized a fast growing market of consumers who preferred to make their own design decisions. Understanding that desire, Frank created the first design service offering consumer access to designer "trade only" furnishings.
In 1988, L.A. Design Concepts was nationally recognized as a groundbreaking company revolutionizing consumer access. The Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles was very intrigued with L. A. Design Concepts working model and approached Frank in 1990 to formulate a consumer service program within their design center. L.A. Design Concepts was now the first service within a design center providing consumer access to Ã¢â‚¬Å“trade onlyÃ¯Â¿Â½? furnishings. Shortly thereafter, an increasing number of interior designers and architects recognized the value of streamlining their access through one single source. Our service allowed designers to focus on designing for their clients without having to maintain accounts with each individual manufacturer.
