Since 1994, Washington, DC and Miami Beach based FORMA Design, Inc., has produced memorable, creative and thoughtful Architecture and Interior Design projects that have garnered over 25 awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and have been widely published in local, national and International books and magazines. Our projects have also been featured on National TV ( HGTV's "Small Space, Big Style", "Bang for Your Buck" and Fine Living Network's " What you get for Your Money"). We were just nominated for the second time for Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s 2014 National Design Awards, a nationwide awards program honoring excellence, innovation, and lasting achievement in American design.

We are registered architects who specialize in Interiors- Interior Architecture and Interior Design. From architectural reconfiguration of a home to the selection of finishes and lighting, furniture, artwork, down to the accessories. Our work has been referred to as "warm modernism with european sensibilities", that result in homes that don't just look great but are also warm and livable. Each and every project is tailored to the individual client, their lifestyle, their budget and what is appropriate to the home itself, so the results are always unique, based on those parameters. Let us know how we can assist you on your project!

What about the stairs. What kind of wood is that and was it custom made?

Same wood was used on the stair, which was custom designed and built for the project.

No, actually this is a framed mirror with 8" wood frame that was custom made for the space. I can understand the optical illusion, though...

I have HUGE vanities and would like a mirror to span the length. I am having difficulty finding large mirrors in Dallas. One would need to be 84w x 46h and the other 62w x 44h. Any suggestions? Recommendations?

Go to a glass company. They will do that easily for you. Google for one in your area, or ask a contractor.

It was selected to match the tile. No color spec is available, I'm afraid.

Ideally you should have an exhaust fan above the bathtub area. If that is not the case, and you are concerned about moisture being trapped, ( which it will), leave some space on the top for the steam to escape. Of course it also depends on how long your shower is.

We were not involved in the selection of the exterior color, I'm afraid. It was the existing color when the clients purchased the home.

The wood floor is white oak, and the stain we used was ebony. The wood was not pre-finished; we added several coats of the stain on site, until we got to the desired color.

They are beautiful! A site finished Ebony over White Oak floor is perfect for this space. Your finishers did a great job.

Launch Home Systems
Let us know if you need help with this. We install systems like you are describing every day. One of two things must be installed: Either an IR RECEIVER mounted somewhere you can see on your TV, that will see the infrared codes you send from the remote, and then through a wire will "talk" to all the relevant equipment stored in the cabinet......or......you were supplied a RF REMOTE, which, like WiFi, will actually go through your cabinet, talk to a processor, and then that processor will have those wires that will talk with the appropriate equipment in the cabinet. Hope this helps!!
