Curating Personal Collections

This month we have been talking all about travel and global in interior design. Not only do we love to explore, but we are always immersed in adventurous designs for our well traveled interior design clients. While we are experts at sourcing new accessories and furnishings, we also curate and integrate our clients’ found objects into our designs. One of the benefits of working with an interior designer is our ability to integrate existing pieces, but still entirely transform a space. Our guide to curating collections, from family artwork to globally found pieces…

Interior Designer Guide to Curating Collections

Co-Founder + Principal Interior Designer

Elevate small items with glass boxes. 

Displaying a client’s collection of smaller items in clear glass boxes is a great way to add dimension and style to personal objects.

Create a gallery wall. 

We once worked with a client who had an extensive art collection so we created a floor-to-ceiling gallery wall to display their original pieces in a bold way.

Frame meaningful pieces. 

We often with with clients who have their kids’ art displayed throughout the house. Framing these pieces in acrylic boxes or modern frames gives children’s artwork a sense of sophistication while making the pieces pop.

Layer heirloom rugs.

Pairing antique or family heirloom rugs with a modern sisal or jute rug adds a modern and collected look to a space.

Reupholster or add interesting hardware.

I love when a client has a piece of furniture they want us to incorporate into our design and we have the opportunity to give it new life by reupholstering it in a fun or interesting fabric. You can also add unique hardware, like our Starburst Pulls, to transform and existing piece.

Accent style and personality with coffee table books.

I love looking for coffee table books to incorporate that are meaningful to each client. Whether they love travel, art, fashion or the outdoors, book selections can speak to their personalities and create a cohesive design when added to existing collections.

Bringing carefully selected items home from travels is such a great way to remember your adventures and add global flair to your home. What found items do you cherish?

Pulp Design Studios July Pulp Edit

The Pulp Edit: July 2017

July has been full of spaces with a creative and vibrant flair here at Pulp. With summer in full swing, we rounded up our top 10 interior design trends of July 2017…

Bien Fait In the Wild Wallcovering

This wallcovering from Bien Fait is the definition of a design element with a flair for the unexpected. The captivating illustration feels straight out of an enchanting children’s book, but is so striking we could see it in a space for adults or youth.


Pulp Edit Dynamic Ceiling from Nobu

The dynamic floor-to-celing design of Nobu’s relocated New York location has us wanting to make a trip back to the city. Photographed by Eric Laignel in Interior Design‘s June 2017 issue, the paneled ceiling leaves no inch of the space untouched, demonstrating just how powerful bold design can be.


Pulp Edit Layered Asymmetry Elle Decor

We love the way the layered asymmetry in this room designed by Herdandez Greene gives the space a curated artisan feel. The geometric wallcovering paired with various sized artwork creates contrast that draws the eye, but still feels cohesive. We discovered this stunning room photographed by Peter Murdoch in House Beautiful May 2017.


Pulp Edit Whimsical Forms in Children's Room

We featured frameless furniture in last month’s Pulp Edit and were instantly obsessed when we found this kid’s room in Domino Magazine. The whimsical details sprinkled throughout the space set the perfect tone for an imaginative children’s room. This photo by Skye Parrot is sure to inspire.


Pulp Edit Spotlight Artist

Spotted in Elle Decor, this piece by Helen Frankenthaler is an intriguing abstractionist representation of a natural landscape. We approach design with an eye for adventure, artisan pieces and all things with a flair for the unexpected which has us loving abstract art.


Pulp Edit, side table by Grain

These side tables, crafted in the Pacific Northwest by Chelsea and James Minola and featured in Interior Design June 2017, are simply amazing. Not only do they offer ample surface space for organization, but the modern design is truly something you cannot find elsewhere. Definitely a piece to spark conversation…


Pulp Edit Home Gallery Architectural Digest

A house built to display an art collection — we couldn’t love it more. We love working with clients who have collection impressive artwork over the years. Creating a gallery feel in your home makes the entire space exude sophistication. Featured in August’s issue of Architectural Digest and photographed by François Dischinger, this striking image is awe-inspiring.


 Pulp Edit Schumacher Wallcovering
From the color to the pattern, our design team has been all over this wallcovering by Celerie Kemble. It’s no secret that we love designing walls that make a statement, so it was love at first sight when we laid eyes on this wallcovering.


Pulp Edit Katherine Bradford
While this piece is entitled “Fear of Waves” it has us wanting to jump into the ocean and swim in the sun more than ever. Bradford’s use of color and expression of human form is captivating and makes for a collection of pieces we would love to use in our clients’ homes.  Bradford was recently featured in a piece by Julie Belcove in the July/August issue of Elle Decor.


Pulp Edit Modern Ceramics by Paola Paronetto
Paola Paronetto’s ceramic creations are like nothing we have seen before. Her use of texture, form and material make for artisan ceramics that would both draw attention to and complete a contemporary space. We are always sourcing unique art, like these modern bottles, to use in our designs. Paronetto’s pieces were featured in the June 2017 issue of Interior Design.
