Great interior design can turn any workplace into a showcase. From large corporate offices to small mom-and-pop storefronts, whatever the tone that proprietors desire for their office space, professional interior designers can turn ideas into reality. The Nebraska/Iowa Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers recently announced the winners of their annual design contest, impactFULL.

The goal in this new salon was to achieve a balance between the architecture and design. Clever space planning and the use of unique materials created a visually dramatic area.  Overscaled light fixtures, sophisticated tile designs, and a suspended bead metal curtain define the salon and add impact to the overall design.

 

Gold

Linsey Lisowyj, ASID
Interior Design Firm

This design achieved a unique lounge in which one can enjoy a glass of wine while mapping out the next adventure. Vibrant, comfortable, and detail-oriented, this design matches the experience travelers will have within and abroad. The material and finish palette included warm neutrals that created the foundation for the playground of vibrant colors.

D3 Interiors

The design of this new art studio achieved a versatile, bright, open space to accommodate long painting tables with 30-plus seated painters, ample lighting, a large wine and drinks bar, a washer/dryer for the painting aprons, and functional storage for their stock of canvases, paint, and cases of libations. The end result is a functional, warm, bright, and inviting space.

The Designers

Teal and gold were incorporated throughout the hotel. A dramatic focal point takes advantage of clerestory windows. Quartzite stone walls were used for a clean more modern approach. A redesign of the existing lobby included new lighting, reception desk, seating areas, wall coverings, countertops, and a new fireplace to complete the transformation.
