We’ve all seen stylish, sexy flat lays on Insta, right? Maybe you double-tapped to give them some love or bookmarked a few for later? (Whenever later is.) Then, you probably scrolled on without a second thought. But what aren’t you seeing behind each flat lay?
Answer: Hard work, a cohesive color story, and a world of possibility. Here’s what I mean…
The Magic Behind the Flat Lay
As interior designers, we find our design magic during the process of creating a flat lay. Furthermore, this is the primary way we specify colors that are in harmony. While, yes, we have over a decade of experience and training in creating color palettes, sometimes items look different on a screen than in real life.
When we work with physical material samples and color swatches, we can see the undeniable undertones. If a sample we ordered reads too green or too orange, we can fix it before it ever ends up in a client’s home.
Best of all, once we have curated the materials, colors, and swatches for an entire design, we can see how the whole collection looks and feels — which translates to how your space will look and feel!
And here’s our biggest secret: Every Design Kit flay lay you see in our Shop has been assembled in real life in our studio. There is no guesswork or digital distortion — these are hand-perfected combinations that will sing in your future bathroom!
Ahhhh, SO GOOD, right?
What’s Included in a Design Kit’s Flat Lay?
When you look at the Design Kit flat lay, you’ll see all of the tiles in the kit, the grout, at least one piece of hardware, rug samples, accessories, and usually a bit of fresh greens — as plants give rooms LIFE! Flat lays, and your future bathroom, are no different.
Now that you know how much work, love & action-inspiring empowerment has gone into each of our collections, I bet you’ll see these flat lays in a whole new way. 😉
