Sublime Design art prints are here!
If you’re following our Instagram then there’s no way you haven’t noticed our mention of a surprise collection, and I’m glad to announce it’s finally come to life.
This collection was mainly created and inspired by a color pallet. Lately I’ve been really moved by terra-cotta tones and blush tones. I’ve always been really drawn (haha get it?) to figure sketches, it was honestly my first path into art so I knew exactly how I wanted to execute this collection.
This recent collection displays a mixture of line drawings, figure sketches, and some pop art, which all seems to work cohesively together.
1. The Terra-cotta Pallet
Sherwin Williams' 2019 color of the year is Cavern Clay, which is a Southwest inspired tone. For those who want a more elemental, nature-inspired hue with a contemporary twist in their home, this creamy rust will truly shine.
2. The Minimalist Pallet
The minimalist movement has encouraged many modern homemakers to live a more clutter free, thoughtful life. With this, shades associated with minimalism–creams, beiges, and whites–are being incorporated into many home palettes. Cream shades with bolder, more colorful undertones are desired for their inherent simplicity that can be manipulated with different types of lighting. Here, see Benjamin Moore's Balboa Mist, a timeless cream that shifts richer or deeper with shadow and brightness.
3. The Blush Color Scheme
Pale pinks are prevailing in 2019 due to their neutral properties and compatibility with other shades. Interior designer Barbara Schmidtexplains that "Monochromatic colorways–like this pink desert sand shade–will be popular in 2019. It can be mixed with an abundance of white or a lemon yellow for the ideal look."
Millennial pink is a color of the (very recent) past. Now, softer shades like rosy neutrals and muted blushes, which reflect a spirituality, are being favored. Unlike millennial pink, these hues are less trendy and more timeless.
4. White Shades
There’s nothing more classic than an all white palette. And while pure white is a go-to for many homemakers, 2019 will be the year of “almost-whites.” These shades offer subtle nuances that adapt to different lighting, furniture, and surrounding colors. For those who crave a minimalist palette that still feels dynamic, an almost-white shade is the fool-proof choice.
5. Hunter Greens
According to interior designer Becky Shea, hunter greens are a great choice for 2019. "Hunter green holds a sultry and worldly value to it, it's intrinsic in nature and all of life. It's timeless in every respect, and works beautifully with natural elements and neutral tones. What we also love about this color is how seamlessly it transitions between millwork, walls, furniture and accessories. Its gender neutrality also holds a special place in my heart, there's no definition of a home feeling more masculine or feminine; it's the perfect balance of each," she says.
Deep greens that are inspired by (but not directly reflective of) nature will bring the healing properties of the outdoors into the home, without feeling overly arboreal. Here, PPG's color of the year "Night Watch" fills a room with a welcoming richness.
6. Rich and Bold
Here are those who don’t know the meaning of “less is more.” Passionate and eclectic, they have a calling to be unique. They embrace the details and create scene-stealing worlds that burst with beauty. The proof is in this palette that features bold pops of vivid color, maximum impact and lots of energy.
1.Choose a Pallet
Whether you choose to use neutrals, monochrome, or a color pop you want to use colors and shades that complement each other. At Sublime Design we are licensed to and trained to help you find a solution to your pallet troubles. Go ahead and book a color consultation, give us a call.
2. Display Your Likes & Hobbies
If you have a neat collection of hats, OR antiques be sure to put those on display. Unique decor makes the space feel more personal and stands out that much more. In my home I have an Antique Camera from the 1940's I've inherited on display and it is such a conversation piece.
3.Less Is More
The minimalist approach is extremely popular, not sure if that's because of the aesthetic or because people aren't sure what to put on their shelves either but we're loving it! lol. Minimalism doesn't have to be as "planned" as you think as long as there's some coordination it looks purposeful and perfect.

4. Choose Complementary sizes
Too much of one uniform size on your shelves can look way too junky and won't draw the eye. In the above example the books are compiled in similar sizes on each shelf and varies by each shelf. The baskets on the lower shelf above are complementary as well, by not using two of the same size or just stacking them you create a rhythm in the design.
5.Add Plants and Flowers
Sublime Design is all about the plant life! Adding plants and greenery brings a richness in the design, you also add texture and variety in the decor. Another bonus of adding plants is that you use the vases to make a statement and coordinate through your decor. Make sure if you use more than one plant to use different plant types and color to complement each other.
6. Add Candles
Candles are an easy place filler and personally one of my favorites. When lit it'll add to the ambiance to make the space more moody. You can stack the candles on some books our pair candle sticks on the shelf either way you can't really go wrong with adding candles, and make sure to get soy wax or coconut wax candles, they are much better for the air so you can burn them GUILT FREE.
7. Color Coding
Color coding books are on then and personally I don't see them ever going out, whether its a lot of books organized by similar shades or a monochromatic theme this is an easy way to add to your shelfs. Your local thrift store has a ton of books you can buy for this look without breaking the bank.
That's all there is to it. Remember layer, complement, and coordinate. Thanks for reading!
There's more to candle buying than you think.
Candles loaded with paraffin tend to emit toxic fumes, which can be damaging to your health. It has been claimed that paraffin wax releases toxic fumes when burnt, which has contributed to its fall out of favour. In 2009, a study by South Carolina State University found that burning paraffin wax candles give off harmful fumes (toluene and benzene) which is linked to asthma and lung cancer.
To make sure you’re not bringing something harmful into your space, do the touch test.
Some candles that state they’re soy blends contain considerable amounts of paraffin. An easy way to tell is by touching and inspecting the wax. With some limited exceptions for some hard paraffin waxes, generally paraffin candles are soft and have an oily, translucent feel. Soy wax, on the other hand, is hard and opaque. So as a general rule, the more soy in a soy blend candle, the harder the wax will feel.
Here at Sublime Design we will be rolling out some organic and affordable candles this month as well as some organic, non toxic, vegan air fresheners ( I know that's a mouth full). There will be a variety of scents and we will have another post this month explaining the benefits of the different scents.
Thanks for tuning in and drop a comment and tell us some of your favorite scents!
Heres what you need to know...
Indoor plants can change the whole vibe and aura in your home. They also provide a freshness and livliness to your home design. Indoor plants can clean your air as well. With all these benefits to incorporating plants in your home there is still the small drawback of how to arrange what plants where, and how to place them decoratively. In this article we will primarily include how to place the plants and incorporate them in your design.
CHOOSE SUPPLEMENTING COLORS
Arrange colorful plants wisely. Make sure that their colors supplement color scheme of your interior design. Use contrasting colors when you want to make your home look bright and bold.
USE ACCENT PLANTS
If you have one large plant, make it centre of attention. Large ficus, yucca, palm can be used as stand-alone accent plants. Provide them with a nice pot and place them in a prominent place.
CREATE DIMENSION WITH DIFFERENT HEIGHTS
Instead of lining indoor plants, arrange them in a close group with taller plants in the background and smaller ones in the front. Use tables, stands, windowsills or other furniture to create varying heights.
USE FRONDS OR BRANCHES
Instead of using an entire plant, why not add a frond or branch here and there? It adds that bit of plant beauty and looks great with bohemian or modern designs.

Wellness and Design, How do they correlate?
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. At Sublime Design we believe in taking a holistic approach to designing for wellness, designing homes to improve health, mind and well-being.
1. Create a cleansing bath ritual for your home
You cleanse your body in lavish baths, so why not cleanse your space too? I think a ritual bath for the home is just as important [as a bath for you], and it’s something I do about four times a year for my house, I routinely sends my clients off with recipes for baths infused with essential oils, crystals, and other natural elements. For crystals, add in grounding black tourmaline, topaz for abundance and health, and clear quartz, either in a tea strainer or right into your bottle. Then, spray it around your home.
2. Zero in on a space with a wellness purpose
A huge part of creating a wellness-centric home is making sure you have a space you can go to and unwind and clear your head after a long, busy day. That means designating an area—even if it’s small!—for that exact purpose. Whether it’s your yoga mat or a meditation cushion, or a "reading nook", it’s so important to create a space that’s just for you to retreat from your daily life. Somewhere you can turn off everything else and focus inward and find that coziness and inner peace, wherever that may be.
3.Detoxify your home
Detoxify your home by opening the windows and using a doormat , turning your home into a wellness zone means limiting the things that can cause you harm. And that can start simply (and powerfully) with opening your windows. Indoor air tends to be more polluted than outdoor air, A lot of things we have in our homes contaminate the air in the dust, so it’s good to ventilate airflow in your home. Also know dust can contain dozens of toxic chemicals, so having a large doormat at the front entrance and a no-shoes policy can reduce toxic chemicals in your home significantly.
4. Limit your technology
Limit your technology (and adorn it with crystals!). you may have noticed in our designs that there is always a set and separate space for technology and entertainment. Creating boundaries with technology is most important for your well-being, but when you’re binge-watching your favorite Netflix shows (because obviously it’s gonna happen!), your crystals can come in handy.
“Crystals, plants, and other things can modify your electromagnetic fields (EMFs)—energy created from our wireless and wire technologies—to help you become more resilient,” Gushée says.
That’s exactly why some of Hanekamp’s gems always hang with her tech: “I have crystals on all of my technology at home. In one way its blocking the EMFs and cleansing whatever is coming through them that we’re not too sure about,” she says. “I use lepidolite; it’s a beautiful purple mica thats very accessible and sustainable.”
Rethink your lighting When you’re trying to set a sense of serenity in your home, lighting plays a big role. While Himalayan salt lamps are always good additions, a new type of lighting might just take over your Instagram feed soon: selenite lamps.
“Selenite is also a salt, but it’s a much more condensed version. It’s even more of that neutralizing negative energy,” Hanekamp says. “Also, in lamp-form, it’s very aesthetically pleasing and it’s important to focus on when you look at something that balances you, that has an effect on your well-being as well.”
