COUPAR'S FEBRUARY EDIT

Design San Francisco 2017 is here and we feel that there’s no better time to honor our city’s vibrant community of creatives. We are so pleased with the phenomenal turnout at #girlboss, a celebration of three female innovators and their latest product collections, moderated by our own Krista Coupar. Partnering with Quintus and Luxe Interiors + Design, we were proud to shine the spotlight on these women and their invaluable contributions to the world of design. Between #girlboss, Private Collections, and the ICAA’s events calendar, it’s clear that our community is stronger than ever.

24 EAST FEATURES KRISTA COUPAR

We're lucky enough to see our CEO and Founder, Krista Coupar, in action every day, but there’s nothing better than when she’s able to share her innovative vision with a wider audience.  Her groundbreaking business model and disruptive approach to design led her to catch the eye of the East Bay tastemaker Celine MacTaggart at 24 East. Read her full feature here.

OUR DESIGNERS AT THE NAPA SHOWHOUSE

We’re so incredibly impressed with the work our of our clients at the Napa Valley Showhouse. Hosted by Traditional Home, designers showed off their skills, creativity, and finesse as they transformed the home of Lisa Peju of the Peju Province Winery.
Casey Howard Designs, Inc.: 1st Floor Master
In the first floor master, we were awed by Casey Howard’s ability to apply sartorial touches while honoring the rustic spirit of the home. Organic accents, including coral décor and horn ornamentation, tied the two elements together, and vineyard-inspired color choices allow for variance in the space without losing its quiet sophistication.




Kimberley Harrison Interiors: The Powder Room
Stepping into Kimberley Harrison’s ethereal powder room is nothing short of breathtaking. Her bright white color palette opens the space for a clean, tranquil atmosphere while a bold floral wallcovering from Trove and wood vanity touch upon the rustic location of this beautiful home.





Robin Heard Design: Guest Bath
The charm of Robin Heard’s guest bath resonates from her meticulous attention to detail. Unique porcelain tiling sparks visual interest, and seamlessly connects contemporary elements—chrome light fixtures and sleek glass shower doors—with natural pieces such as the wood vanity and woven towel holders.

DECORUM IN THE NOB HILL GAZETTE 

Decorum has officially launched! This online decorative arts emporium, founded by industry leaders Kay Evans and Krista Coupar, offers curated collections of pedigree furnishings, art, and accessories—exclusively to members of the trade. It's hard to believe that the first collection is live and the online emporium's founders couldn't be more honored to have been featured in the latest issue of the Nob Hill Gazette. 
For its debut collection, Pacific Heights Meets Holmby Hills, Decorum is showcasing antique, vintage, and contemporary furnishings and fixtures from Mr. and Mrs. Howard Lester's Northern and Southern California estates. Treasures of the late Williams-Sonoma Chairman and his wife, these pieces are the product of the couple's design collaboration with Mark Boone of Mark Boone Inc. and Paul Vincent Wiseman of The Wiseman Group. Click here to shop the collection, which includes the gorgeous pair of William Switzer Upholstered Lucien Rollin Armchairs above.
