Terrat Elms Interior Design

(617) 451-1555

Business Description
Terrat Elms was founded on the principal that successful design is not about just making something beautiful – it’s about helping clients build an experience they love, and never want to leave. It’s about mixing new and old, expensive and everyday, the crazy fun and seriously sentimental. It’s about opposing the typical and falling for the unconventional.

We know first hand that it’s not always easy. But it can always be fun. It’s the hard work we love, orchestrated by the people we love to work with – architects, engineers, mill workers, furniture makers, upholsterers, collectors, store owners and managers. The kind of people that welcome the day with the thought of something extraordinary. And the kind of people that understand that a budget can be inspiration’s best friend.

In our six years together we have approached clients and projects without preconception. Corporate, residential, urban, vacation, young, established, modern, classical. To us, it’s all about helping people to find their style and expressing it to the fullest. And we hope that this is just the beginning.

@ Salmon Falls Architecture and stilllearning1, generally a grout joint of less than 1/8" gets unsanded grout and over 1/8" gets sanded grout, so it depends on how you set your pennies in the thinset (I'm assuming you're talking about real pennies?)

I am currently putting down cork mosaic in all the bathrooms in our new house. Love them, but my installation is far from perfect. All these pictures look so *perfect*.

I agree, context is extremely important. To that end, IMHO, the shape of the pillow is all wrong because it obscures the back of the chair--its best feature. A more appropriate choice would have been a bolster pillow of sorts, at least according to my sensibilities.

I can see that red bolster pillow working very well. The design is different enough not to compete with the design of the chair and what a treat for the lumbar spine!
