As the day of love approaches, we encourage translating Valentine’s inspiration into interior expressions. At Snake River Interiors, we wholeheartedly believe that the beauty of a gifted bouquet can extend beyond February 14th into an aesthetic ethos that guides your design schema. By identifying your most beloved pieces and practices, your home can become a refuge anchored in affinity. From placing heirlooms to honoring pastimes, we help our clients isolate what brings them joy on a daily basis. By listening and learning, we imbue interiors with emotions and memories; only then does place become a personalized experience; only then does Cupid play an enduring role in customizing design.
Designing by example, Elisa Chambers centered her own master bathroom (above) around her daily practice of unwinding in a tub. As such, she imagined a bathing oasis rich with details and contrast. The focal point: A sculptural soaking tub, perched atop planks of locally-sourced timber. Within the sanctity, Elisa can melt into her surroundings defined in the foreground by antiques curated from her collection and just beyond, by the pristine field outside the picture window. A daily ritual made all the more serene by the careful choreography of functional furniture.
When approaching a recent Dream Cabin remodel, we took careful note of the couple’s passions, namely their love of cooking for family and friends. With space at a premium, she helped them prioritize the rooms they would use most, an exercise best expressed in the design of a copious kitchen island in lieu of a separate dining room. Now, six guests can sit atop sleek stools encircling the island, proximity that allows them to join in the culinary fun. By customizing the architectural plan, we created a kitchen that simultaneously epitomizes and expands the couple’s gourmet devotion.
A favorite piece of furniture can serve as a portal for memory, both conjuring moments from the past and making new memories. When designing the Signature 22 line of custom seating, we reflected on the functional items that starred in family memories: rocking infants to sleep. So with such moments in mind, we designed a swivel rocker—the Elisa glide chair—to foster such serenity amid activity. A site of love, made to order and share.
