Color can transform a space, evolving a bland vanilla box into an atmosphere of warmth and energy. Elana Lathan and Breyan Sussman of Eb Flow Design Group, know just how to use the power of color to give spaces new energy and life. We discussed their design backgrounds, design firm and a recent project showcasing the power of color change.
Elana Lathan and Breyan Sussman started their design firm in April 2010. Prior to this they had worked together at a retail store/design showroom for several years until both decided to branch out on their own. Upon realizing that they worked well together, Eb Flow Design Group was launched. Elana specialized in healthcare and hospitality design, noting such projects featured in numerous publications, while Breyan is trained in Western Feng Shui practices. Together, they work on residential and commercial projects. Elana states, "In fact, we just finished up a behavioral health pediatric facility where we specified Dunn-Edwards Paints ® for that project as well. Our commercial experience is healthcare, hospitality and offices."
The Design Challenge: Spice It Up!
A new client contacted Elana and Breyan to re-design his living room. And with the only request being to add some spice to his space, while still sticking to the budget constraints. Elana adds, “He liked the color orange so that was the starting point for our palette. And, he wanted us to shop at The Room Store, something we have never done before as interior designers….we were actually pleasantly surprised when we were able to purchase all the items at a lower price than the original sofa we had proposed. What surprised us even more is how good it looked!"
Working with the client's keepsake pieces, artwork and accessories, the furnishings blended seamlessly and the room came together, tied in with the spicy wall colors of Dunn-Edwards Perfect Palette
® colors DE5202 Desert Spice and DE6137 Tan Plan. And the client reaction? Breyan declares, "...the client loves it and says the living room looks better than ever!" Color does indeed transform.
