Three designers inspire with Crosspoint

Last winter we asked a few designers how they would use patterns from our Tailormade Collection in their work. Ever inspired by the process of collaborating with designers, we decided to do it again, this time with the new Crosspoint Collection. Hillary Thomas, Beth Webb, and Gary McBournie — three designers who’s work we love — agreed to work their magic using styles of their choice. The results range from neutral and calm to colorful and energetic.

Hillary Thomas
San Francisco, CA –

Hillary Thomas created an airy bedroom with feminine touches and luxurious textures. With a velvet chair, silk pillows, and a dusky pink color scheme, the room is as warm and welcoming as it is stylish.

Hillary Thomas Designs embodies a “Vintage Chic” style — layered, worldly, sophisticated, with a juxtaposition of the old with the new.

Beth Webb Interiors believes that proper scale and timelessness are essential attributes of every design, in addition to being respectful of a client’s personality and desires.

Hillary Thomas inspires with dusky pink chic

Hillary Thomas Design BoardHillary Thomas creates a stylish bedroom with luxurious texture and feminine flair, using a Rift rug in Foxglove from the Crosspoint Collection.

Merida: Explain why you chose this particular Crosspoint pattern and color combination.

Hillary Thomas: I’m a sucker for anything pink and striped so this particular rug immediately jumped out at me. I love the slight chevron pattern to it – so fun!

M: Who do you see living in this space?

HT: A chic & successful woman, early 30′s…perhaps a stylist living in Los Angeles. A gal who isn’t afraid to let her hair down and takes her cocktail shaken not stirred!

M: How does your design board reflect your design philosophy?

HT: I love playing with different textures and mixing styles for a fresh & modern approach. I love the combo of the wool rug with a velvet chair, a silk pillow, brass light fixtures and fur throw. Heavenly!

M: What are some other types of projects you could see Crosspoint being used for?

HT: It is such a versatile line!  You could use these designs anywhere from a beach front property to a cabin in Aspen. The colors and designs are so unique and give the perfect pop to any space.

Hillary is the inspiration and original founder of Hillary Thomas. Ten years ago, she “officially” took the plunge (but she’s been decorating her entire life!) and launched a traditional interior design business in Santa Monica, CA. The business has evolved from a successful interior design firm into a vibrant product and lifestyle company.

Hillary believes that good design isn’t something off-the-shelf or necessarily one particular style. Rather, it’s an eclectic mix of the high and the low, where inexpensive flea market finds and fine antiques can effortlessly coexist.

Originally from Locust Valley, Long Island, Hillary brings her passion for design and her open spirit to all her projects. Her goal is to bring out the inner-creative in even her most left-brained clients and friends. Rooted in her belief that life is multicultural, multilayered, and inspiring, Hillary loves nothing more than harmonizing different lifestyles, tastes, and beloved objects into a thoughtfully designed and highly individualized living space.

Beth Webb inspires with stylish rustic neutrals

Beth Webb Designs creates a calming, neutral space with a rustic feel, using a Diamant rug in Desert Taupe with a woven Rift border.

Merida: Explain why you chose this particular Crosspoint pattern and color combination.

Beth: It’s classic, effortlessly comfortable and totally timelessly traditional.  I loved the soft neutral colorways with this pared down rustic design.

M: Who do you see living in this space?

B: With Fall in the air, “Comfort is key.”  Maybe it’s a getaway at the little new residences in Aspen for a young couple from New York.  A heavily textured linen curtain wall anchors the space with rustic reclaimed wood surfaces.  Christian Liagre upholstery, always decadently comfortable and at the same time sculptural, ensures luxurious living at its very best. Along with a bespoke coffee table by Gregorius Pineo, the fabrics by C&C Milano and trim by Samuel and Sons, all juxtapose with a decadent chinchilla throw from Loro Piana.  Bring on the snow….

M: How your design board reflect your design philosophy?

B: Soft, serene, edited and comfortable with some decadently luxurious, sensual touches.

M: What are some other types of projects you could see Crosspoint being used for?

B: Crosspoint is a chameleon, I can see it going into a formal as well as a causal room setting.

Beth Webb has a penchant for great art, beautiful proportions, and comfortable, yet luxurious touches. Beth believes that proper scale and a sense of timelessness are the foundation of any successful interior–whether it’s traditional, eclectic, or contemporary. Her guiding philosophy on interior design lies in her core belief that any space created for a client should be respectful of their lifestyle and their passions. Hence, listening is of the utmost importance in order to craft a home that embodies a client’s true character and personality. Based in Atlanta, GA, Beth Webb’s projects include homes throughout the southeast, as well as residences in Los Angeles, Florida, Connecticut, Michigan, and Costa Rica.

Gary McBournie inspires with strong hues and patterns

Gary McBournie Design board

Gary McBournie designs a colorful living space utilizing a Diamant rug in Laguna, from the Crosspoint Collection.

Merida:  Explain why you chose this particular Crosspoint pattern and color combination.

Gary: I love geometric patterns and blue is one of my favorite colors.  With the diamond pattern, I wanted to mix in a more complex print but with strong colors in the same tone as the blue in the carpet.

M: Who do you see living in this space?

G: I see this as the living room for a professional couple living in the city who possess a certain joie de vivre.

M: How does your design board fit reflect your design philosophy?

G: I am primarily a “transitional” designer with a strong affinity for color and pattern.  Need I say more?

M: What are some other types of projects you could see Crosspoint being used for?

G: This Crosspoint pattern could be used almost anywhere.  I can see myself using it in urban, suburban, country and beach settings.  The diamond pattern is a classic!
