It’s our final post in the Before & After: Poolside in Palm Springs series and I definitely feel like we’ve saved the best for last. Scroll below to see the dramatic transformations of the master bedroom and bath, media room, outside patio and pool area.

In this post, we’ll show you how Eric Kole, Vastu co-owner, transformed the kitchen, living room, guest bedrooms and bathroom from dark, crowded and outdated spaces into luxurious, spacious rooms befitting a swanky Palm Springs abode.

New paint on the walls and flooring, a thoughtful collection of furniture and whole lot less clutter really cleaned up those bedrooms, and there’s still more to come! Next time, I’ll be revealing the media room, the master bedroom and bath and the fantastic outdoor living areas.
Vastu co-owner Eric Kole recently bought and remodeled a property in Palm Springs, California and the before and after images are like night and day!
Before Eric took over the home it was crowded, extremely dark and didn’t have a clear personality or sense of style. Actually, it did have a personality: dark, kind of depressing and dumpy. The interior and exterior of the home did not fit with the swanky feel of Palm Springs. I mean, this house is next door to Frank Sinatra’s house! It should be spectacular.
Check out the first set of photos below to see how Eric achieved it!

It goes without saying, but the Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture show in Milan is an exciting experience for everyone who attends, especially those who are in the design and interiors industries. For Eric Kole and Jason Claire, it’s a chance to see what’s new from well-established manufacturers and to see who’s new in the world of design.
This year they came back with some new lines for the store (more to come on that later) as well as several trends to share with you all. Here’s a small recap…
The rugs at the show were deeply jewel-toned and monochromatic. What was most interesting about them, however, was the way in which they were distressed. Many looked almost threadbare in the treatment of their surfaces. Regardless of how “worn” the rug was, though, there was still a beautiful color or pattern visible.
If you’re one to keep your furniture fairly neutral, a vibrant rug is a great way to bring color to a room.
There’s just a couple of trends left from Milan. Check back with Design Clique to see what it is!
Today’s trend from Milan deals with color!
At the Salone del Mobile, Jason and Eric noticed a definite trend towards manufacturers using deep, rich, saturated jewel-tones. Think pure indigo or vibrant ruby reds. These colors were seen everywhere too. From rugs and wall coverings to upholstery fabrics, vendors in Milan were not afraid of color.
About a month ago, Vastu co-owners Eric Kole and Jason Claire had the pleasure of attending the 2012 Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture fair in Milan. They came back with great ideas, loads of inspiration and possibly even some new products for Vastu. The other thing they brought with them was a good understanding of some trends being established at an international level.
Over the next few days, I’ll go over some of those trends (along with gorgeous photos from the shows) so you can get some inspiration and maybe even introduce a few of those concepts in your own home designs.
Today’s trend from Milan is a two for one deal.
When it comes to interior design, the short answer is “no”. However, this doesn’t mean that smaller is a more suitable choice when choosing furniture for your space either. You need to find the happy medium and go with pieces that are in the right scale for your home and lifestyle. Read more
