1. Antique or modern?
We love incorporating vintage into our designs; it brings an element that is unique, quirky, and ecologically friendly. We do love modern, but our interpretation isn’t a super contemporary one.
2. City or country?
Depends which one of us you ask. Karen loves cities—the shopping, the museums, the people-watching. But if you ask Guy it’s the country—he’d rather be in a treehouse. We’re a modern day Green Acres.
3. Which colors do you use most?
Orange and turquoise are favorites. Also a washed-out darker blue that feels old world.
