As an interior designer, and as a fan of all things beautiful and creative, I often find that joining forces with other creative souls can lead to a more successful result than I had even first imagined. With this idea always in the back of my mind, Shanna Shryne Design has recently shared a number of collaborative projects with our friends over at Curious, a variety store right here in Hermosa Beach that also offers handcrafted furniture.
Designed by Shanna Shryne Design and brought to life by the artistry of Bryce, owner of Curious, here are some of the most outstanding fruits of the collaboration between Shanna Shryne Design and Curious!
This Mediterranean Oasis Headboard was constructed using faux animal skin that was wrapped around the hand-carved structure; antique bronze nailheads were used to trim the perimeter. The bright, aqua color of the faux animal skin brings life to an otherwise neutral space.
(Say hello to Bryce!)
After receiving the specifically tailored design plans from Shanna Shryne Design, Bryce from Curious built this media cabinet that was finished in a clean distressed white. I designed this cabinet for a client who owns a small beach house, and it fit beautifully into their simple space!
When I started designing this trunk I made sure to keep in mind the utilitarian benefits it could offer to our client. Positioned at the foot of the bed, a trunk of this nature works as a place one can sit to take shoes off, and it doubles as extra storage space…and who doesn’t need extra storage space?!
And our favorite – featured on Facebook last week, this is an example of a beautiful AND eco-friendly headboard! The trim was re-purposed from an antique coffee table from an estate sale; we then added an over scaled floral pattern in the center. And I’m proud to say that the trim was personally painted by yours truly!
We at Shanna Shryne Design revel in the creative opportunities that each new client and project allows us to conceptualize. Every project we take on is always unique and dear to us - whether we are working with architectural structure, landscaping, or designing custom furniture! Thanks to Bryce for helping to bring these Shanna Shryne Design pieces to life!
