Design Therapy

In Need Of A Litle Design Therapy? If you’re anything like me – and I know that many of my wonderful clients reading this will relate – the last few weeks have provided the perfect opportunity to tackle shelved projects and focus on the little details of our surroundings. Whether it’s renovating an outdoor area of our home to accommodate sunset cocktails and al fresco dinners with the family or diving into the design details of that exciting new build or refit, the absence of life’s usual distractions has opened the doors to allow us to focus on those things that bring us joy. I call it “Design Therapy”!

Transform Your Space...

Whether you are staging, re-decorating or planning your yacht design, transforming your space doesn’t always have to be a massive undertaking. My latest blog post: Transform Your Space: Staging Cracker Bay With Five Often Overlooked Elements looks back on a staging project I was commissioned to do aboard the 150’ Hakvoort yacht, Cracker Bay, and how a few simple changes can make all the difference

Be sure to also check out Cracker Bay‘s Project Portfolio and the 125′ Westport Castlefinn Project Portfolio, both new on our site!

Lounge In Luxury...

Now that we’re all home for an extended period, let’s take a look at our personal sanctuaries, starting with the bed linens! Since nearly one third of our lives are spent sleeping, investing in the best linens is well worth it!

A well-dressed bed can be as simple as fine quality sheets topped with a fluffy duvet and duvet cover, or composed of various layers, such as a flat sheet, blanket, quilt and throw. Or, perhaps it’s all hidden under a custom bedspread! Personally, I love a fluffy duvet folded at the foot of the bed to keep everything looking clean and inviting.

Whether you’re looking for new bedding for your bedroom or stateroom, we have scoured the world to source the best in duvets, bedspreads and coverlets. Let us help you choose the bedding that suits your sleeping habits, decor and climate.

Retail Therapy...

Of course, our design therapy coincides with a bit of retail therapy as we now have ample time to spend searching for that perfect accessory or unique art piece. And now, drumroll please…. I am so pleased to announce the launch of our new online store! (Still a work in progress so please be patient with us!)

In addition to exclusive Destry Darr Designs private label collections including bespoke bed linens & accent pillows with luxe materials, unique embroidery & applique designs, we are proud to offer a diverse selection of special luxury products, styles & brands to cater to our client’s distinct tastes & preferences.

So, let’s work together on your next or current design project. From unique accessories to exquisite bed linens, our carefully curated inventory of outfitting items are the perfect dose of “Design Therapy”.
