Clean or cluttered it’s always there. My #1 favorite source of coffee is a beloved coffee system located conveniently 20 steps from my desk in the showroom. This whole bean machine never lets me down … espresso, coffee, cappuccino.

MEET … FINALIST NUMBER TWO
Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman was a finalist and fan favorite on Season 6 of “Project Runway” and has a BFA in Fashion Design from SAIC in Chicago. He is constantly inspired by the world around him and his interactions with others. He translates emotions received from artwork, music, architecture, literature and nature into his designs. He is committed to domestic production of all goods he works with as well as utilizing either recycled or sustainable fibers in the materials he uses in his designs. In his custom designs, he repurposes as many materials for details as possible.
People usually link the color “gray” with sadness, and this is true if used in excess without balance. Gray is a non-color and the emotional response is rather neutral, but when crisp white or a splash of bold color is added to the color palette, the dull gloomy, gray mood is transformed into a relaxing oasis.
Gray calms the eye and makes the other colors in a room standout – whites are crisper and bold colors are rich and dramatic.
Here are some fabulous examples from a few Twin Cities designers!
Stephanie Weber – Art Consultant/Gallery Owner
Stephanie Weber utilized her degree in Environment, Textiles and Design, as well as her previous 12-year career as an art consultant to co-found Artful Décor in 2000. The corporate office and framing facility, located in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, now includes Artful Décor Gallery. The gallery opened in 2009 at the Minneapolis Design Center at International Market Square.
Stephanie’s concentration is on art that evokes an experience through an emotional connection. Color, line and the other elements in artwork evoke different emotional response from calming to awakening and from contemplative to whimsical.
Emily Little, Senior Designer – Valcucine Minneapolis
Twin Cities native, Emily J. Little has been serving the clients of Valcucine Minneapolis for 7 years. Emily is full of moxie & imagination with projects stretching across the country.
Her projects have appeared in Midwest Home and Garden, METRO, Mpls/St. Paul magazine, Trends, Twin Cities Spaces, Residential Architect & the Minneapolis Star Tribune. She has also been a part of several award-winning collaborations.
