Pink is the New Black

by Laura Casey Interiors on February 14, 2016

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pink interiors. Its many shades are effortlessly chic and doesn’t have to be overly feminine. Depending on its use, it can add playfulness or drama to a space.

After all, “pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude”.

Hello 2016

by Laura Casey Interiors on January 4, 2016

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year. We are back in the swing of things in the office and 2016 is off to a great start. I got a little R&R time with my family before Christmas which was much needed.

This past year I did not have the time to write the blog posts that I would have liked to.  I hope in 2016 to be able to write more often and if I do I will hit the mark of my 500th blog post! In the fall Charlotte Magazine published an interview with me and you can ready it by clicking here or below.

LCI & QC Exclusive

by Laura Casey Interiors on September 28, 2015

The QC Exclusive is a great lifestyle magazine published in Charlotte. The current issue includes an article showcasing several of my favorite rooms that I have designed. It was fun sitting down and discussing what inspires me, my design process, and the challenges I have had to overcome as a designer.

Ode to Matisse & The Cut-Outs

by Laura Casey Interiors on May 28, 2015

I’ve always admired the art work of Henri Matisse. When I was young there was an art book on our living room coffee table with Matisse’s The Dance on the cover and that image has always stayed with me.

When I was working on the bedroom below, I was looking for a light blue and green fabric. Ode to Matisse by Lulu DK for Schumacher seemed to be the perfect fit.

A few months ago I went with my dad and one of my boys to see the Matisse cutouts at the MOMA, which was a fantastic exhibition.

The Bechtler Museum in Charlotte, NC currently has an exhibit The Art Books of Henri Matisse, which I recently visited. Eighty of his original illustrations are framed, and it also includes some text from a few of his books.

 The fashion world seems to like the cutouts as well.

My friend Courtney Barnes  is a fantastic writer at her blog Style Court. She wrote an article last summer for the Off-Duty Section of the WSJ about the Matisse Cut- Outs.

Boll & Branch

Boll & Branch is one of my favorite sources for bedding. They only use organic cotton, resulting in sheets and throws that are incredibly soft. Not only are their products great, but they are ethically made.

“We believe they should ALL be treated well and paid fairly because their well-being is more important than maximizing profits. Someday, we hope that our belief no longer makes us unique”.- Missy & Scott Tannen, in regard to their employees.

I use it while watching TV, or in the winter when I needed an extra layer at night time.

They are a brand worth supporting.
