Like I said above, I used my line of Semihandmade doors for Ikea cabinets in the the kitchen and my SSS x Park Studio hardware (we have added appliance pulls and additional sizes to the collection now which we got to use on the refrigerator above). Both are modern versions of classic designs that match the 100 layer cake/festoon aesthetic perfectly. And like I mentioned… Festoon is the very first place I was able to install my new line of cement tile that I designed for Concrete Collaborative. It’s a series of 5 designs that you can use all together, as shown above, or create patterns with the various designs. The countless different pattern possibilities alone have me SO excited to start using the tile every where I can. The color is a subtle lilac that borders on a warm gray but with just a touch of purple that reminds me of the color of the mountains around the desert in Palm Springs. The tiles are made to order so the color is completely customizable as well (more on the tile line soon!). Now onto the front of the house… When you first walk into Festoon you are greeted with a wide open space. It is a studio, it is an event space, it’s an office, it can be whatever the heck you can think of… it is available to rent. Most importantly, the space had to be flexible to house all those different kinds of functions. By building out cabinets and running a countertop along the whole back we created a versatile backdrop that could become a buffet, the back side of a bar, a wall for display or paired with the island look like a kitchen. A subtle custom blush venetian plaster was applied to the walls and three pairs of brass sconces extend over the countertop. I also designed the large island to be moveable (it’s on large caster wheels) so they can take it out of the main area to make room for larger events or reposition it around the space for different uses. A bar, a work table, a dessert buffet, a check-out counter, you name it. The front side of the island houses more cabinets so when facing out it can also serve as a large credenza/versatile furniture piece. I had Concrete Collaborative make a custom size tile and mixed a few different finishes along with different colors to create the pattern on the back side. There she is! Hope you enjoyed the tour and if you’re in the area definitely book an event at Festoon (and please invite me so I have the excuse to come back).
