What is your company name?
Forbes + Masters

What's your favorite design tip?
Paint, paint, and more paint. It is the cheapest and most impactful product you can use in a bare room in need of a bold and drastic transformation.

What color did you choose and why?
Deep teal. Deep moody colors are in, and Sherwood Forest (deep teal) is one of our favorite colors this season.

What’s your vision for the space?
Our vision for this space is a highly textured and cultured sitting room filled with artifacts and art from one's travels.

Who are your ACC show artist picks and why are you featuring those particular objects?
All of the pieces we selected looked as though they were from another era or country. We love this black urn-like vase by Mark Gardner (left). It appears as if it came from Egypt, and the texture on it is impeccable. As interior designers, we have a soft spot in our hearts for architecture and furniture design. We believe that this piece by Albert Hall IV (right) represents both arts. The pieces by Jeff Pender (middle) are so futuristic, that it almost looks as though they're from another planet. They're unlike anything we've ever seen, and we were certain that they would set our vignette apart.
