Top Hollywood celebrities are giving deserving people in their lives stunning home renovations, with Crypton Home fabrics in a supporting role.
The Bro Code: Home Edition
Because itâ€™s the first home of oneâ€™s own, thereâ€™s just a certain pride of place in that starter apartment. You want to text everyone you know to stop over (and if youâ€™re honest, you kinda want them to use the coasters when they do.) Whether youâ€™re outfitting a new house, a first apartment or even a dorm room, chances are that space will see a few parties. And yes, even broâ€™s want to keep it neat without harshing the party vibe.
Enter Crypton Home fabrics. When Los Angeles based filmmaker Robert Ingraham got his own place, he wanted it to have some mid-century reference points, and to reflect his love of film and music. Designer Anne Sage, who is a some time colleague of Robertâ€™s, came up with a plan. â€œRobert is a filmmaker with a finely honed visual instinct. He wanted to hang some of his own fine art photography work on the walls,â€ she says, â€œSo we used his pieces as the jumping off point for our palette and overall vibe. His request was for a bachelor pad that didnâ€™t feel like a bachelor padâ€”and hues of sky, slate, rust, and ochre set the scene for soothing yet dynamic space.â€
Large upholstered elements are a great way to start a room design. Contemporary pieces that have clean lines that harken mid-century silhouettes work perfectly here, starting with a sofa from the Rowe Modern Mix Collection, covered in Crypton Home Fabric, and a Huntington House button tufted chair in Crypton Home Fabricâ€™s Nomad weave. See how Robert and his broâ€™s enjoy the space thoroughly:
Anne cleverly worked a lot of Robertâ€™s collections into the design, so that in a small space thereâ€™s an intentional place for everything. Books, boxes, vintage cameras and a super cool vintage projector found places of honor, along with artwork of Robertâ€™s own creation, or by friends and local artists, pulled together by custom framing in a mix of natural and black gallery-style frames.
Another clever small-space idea is to create surfaces that are multi-purpose, as Anne did here with a desk-dining table combo in a cool, minimalist hairpin leg style. When a desk or table faces a windowless wall, adding a piece of art that provides a great view is always a good solution.
If, like Robert, you want a sofa that laughs in the face of buttered popcorn, chairs that defy you to tip over that red wine and an ottoman that screams â€˜put your feet up on me, dude,â€™ Crypton fabric upholstery is easy to get through furniture e-tailers like Lulu and Georgia, Society Social and CB2. All you have to do is select a Crypton fabric when ordering your upholstered furniture. For Robert, we wish years of joy in this space and those to come, and we hope eventually these same Crypton fabrics will be repelling lots of Champagne in the wee hours of the morning after awards night, and that the end table will get a very shiny new accessory.
