Horizons @ 77th | Design Sparks

Our recently featured project, Horizons @ 77th was easily one of our most favorite projects to have the pleasure of designing. We were blessed with the ability to have more creative freedom than some of our other projects, making this one such a joy to create. In this post, we’ll mention some of the highlights of this space and a few reasons why it is at the top of our favorites list.


When possible in establishing a project's vision or design story, the setting can be a pivotal part.

The surrounding area can provide design inspiration for color palette, décor and material selections. The overall design should harmonize with its surroundings and transcend the purely local and region nearby.

Color Palette

Along with being inspired by and researching the region, beginning of a project, establishing the color palette is key as well.


For this project, we created a beachy vibe with a gradation of blue-greens inspired by the ocean, paired with neutrals. Colors selected were from the Classic Color collection from Benjamin Moore: 708 White Rain , 709 Heavenly Blue, 710 Kensington Green & 711 Boca Raton Blue. These colors are timeless and elegant.

Furniture Technique

Use of dip dye has been around awhile to add a touch of whimsy and provide a unique detail.

Dip Dye is a great way to keep the natural wood showing through too. Check out these inspiring ideas above using this method. Learn more with tips from Decor Influencer and Vox.

Regional Feature

The Myrtle Beach area is known for its abundance of seaside bike trails, all of which promise stunning views of the Atlantic and other natural terrain.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” ― Albert Einstein. We used this as inspiration and incorporated it into the artwork seen here. Along with this fun graphic art piece, we used the influence of bicycling by displaying the quote above on the entry coat rack and also artfully placed a vintage bicycle image on the main bedroom headboard.

Visual Interest

oOmbré /ˈɒmbreɪ/ (literally "shaded" in French) is the blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.

This striking effect was used for the drapery at the Horizons project. We worked with the drapery fabric vendor to create a version starting with white at the top and blending to blue-green at the bottom. Architecture Art Designs, Decoist and Essential Home have gathered clever ideas shown above to provide sparks of inspiration on how to implement this effect with tile, wallcovering and fabric.

Come back soon to see how we implemented these sparks and additional ones into the featured project Horizons @ 77th.
