A Colour-ful Condo Design in Evansville’s Art District

One of the best things about building relationships with our clients is the opportunity to work with them on multiple projects. For Enjolé designer Candis Stratton, it was a joy to recently be able to help one client with three different projects!

Candis’ favorite project with this client was getting to work on an entire condominium at The Colours in Haynie’s Corner, Downtown Evansville. She states, “The funniest part of this project was that when I went to present her plan for the apartment, Amy said ‘wait there’s been a change’, and then she handed me a set of plans for a new build.” From the paint colors to the floors to the light fixtures and furniture to artwork and bedding, Candis was able to help her client create a youthful and unique living space from the ground up.

During the consultation, one of the biggest priorities the client had was the need for performance fabrics and flooring due to her four-legged friend. Candis was able to suggest the perfect pieces, like this Bernhardt sectional with performance fabric, to accommodate both the client’s vision as well as her practical needs living with a pet.

Living in the heart of the art district of Evansville, this client wanted her condo to stand out from the other similar looking spaces. Beyond the cosmetics of the vision, one of the client’s main priorities was to ensure the design would help her achieve her long-term goals. For this reason, Candis proposed she stick with a light and airy theme for its versatility and motivating aesthetic. With this simple palette, Candis was able to add fun pops of color and rich textures – through throw pillows, unique lamp shapes, and textured cabinets – complete with globally inspired accessories from the client to create a space full of the client’s personality and style.

If you are interested in working with Candis or one of our other design consultants, please reach out to us through our contact form or call (812) 706-9906 to set up your consultation today. We’ll explain our entire design process and answer any questions about our services before getting started on your dream space!

What to Expect at your First Consultation

Investing in an interior design team can be intimidating at first. Especially when you’re unsure of the process or where to start. At Enjolé, we want to ensure that you have the comfort and understanding of how our process works before choosing to work with us. 

To prepare for your consultation, bring your vision and any inspiration pieces (whether they’re from a magazine or social media) you may have. Our designers will expand on these ideas and come up with a custom plan for you, but we love to see a few images that inspire you! If you’re unsure of what you want, our designers will ask specific questions in order to find the perfect pieces to suit your wants and needs. 

We start all of our consultations with an in-person or phone conversation. This is where we learn more about you and the vision you have for your space. Once we’ve had our initial conversation, we usually like to set up a time to do a 2-hour consultation at your home to get a feel for the space we will be working with, and to understand more of your personality and style. You don’t need to come with a style in mind, and you don’t need to know design lingo. We will guide you throughout the whole process and speak in terms that connect with you.

During this 2-hour consultation, we’ll get to know more about your likes and dislikes, how you’re wanting to utilize the space, as well as take a tour of the home or space you are wanting to redo. This is the time our designers will tap into their expertise to start envisioning the perfect space for you. We’ll make suggestions, take notes, photos, measurements, and any other details we may need before heading back to our design showroom to start designing your dream space.

It can take up to two weeks for us to complete a presentation, because we want to make sure you will love it. We’ll invite you back to our comfortable design studio – Enjolé Interiors – and present our personalized ideas and exclusive design to you. Our goal is to make this as smooth as possible, so you don’t have to worry about a thing! Our designers will do all the work; from consulting on a specific size for a piece of furniture, to sourcing the specific colors, fabrics, and pieces for your home or office.

All you have to do is sit back and watch our designers bring your interior dreams to life! 

Whether you’re looking to remodel your entire home, commercial office, or just upgrading an already loved space, our designers at Enjolé Interiors can help you create the space of your dreams. If you’re ready to book your consultation today, call our store at (812) 706-9906.

Clean Lines & Colorful Art, a Project with Designer Margy Foster

The design team at Enjolé is honored to be trusted and invited into so many of our clients’ beautiful homes and vacation properties. One of our most recent projects includes this beautiful, contemporary condominium in Oak Meadow.

CREATING A TOUCH OF DRAMA AND ELEGANCE

Utilizing her unique design perspective, our wonderful and talented designer Margy Foster, was able to bring this client’s dream space to life. In the loft area of this condo, she used the colors provided in the artwork to guide her stylistic decisions for the perfect lighting piece. Because of the understated warm hues in the artwork, Margy chose to add a warm lighting element to help accentuate the warm undertones.

The use of a linear gold chandelier with glass globes provides a pleasant and inviting space while the vibrant art piece brings a focus to the stunning loft area above, creating a very elegant and dramatic aesthetic.

In the space below, there are various pops of blues and blacks as well as dainty patterns throughout the room. These small details, along with the painting and chandelier, have created an eye-catching, seamless flow throughout the entire space. 

A KITCHEN REMODEL FOR A MODERN STYLE

In the kitchen, Margy saw an opportunity for a picturesque bar. She encouraged her clients to paint the existing cabinets a beautiful shade of blue to create synergy between both the living room and the bar area. To keep consistency with the color palette and patterns, the countertop was replaced with a new white granite with a dramatic charcoal veining to mimic the style of the living room.

In the kitchen area, Margy utilized the most timeless color combination of all – black and white. Placing black leather and chrome stools to compliment the unique countertops, she was able to create a clean yet unique look.

 The clients absolutely loved the countertop that they decided to add it to the backsplash amongst the sleek white cabinets to provide texture.

To complete the look of this kitchen, the clients wanted to incorporate the blue from their color palette, so Margy added an area rug with aenjole-interiors-margy-project-contemporary-condo-kitchen-table-with-chandelier blue pattern to pull the entire area together.

We are thrilled to have worked with these amazing clients to help them create the space of their dreams. Whether you’re looking to redesign or build from the ground up, our design team at Enjolé Interiors is always ready to help you create the space you’ve been envisioning.

From the Ground Up: Creating a House on a Lake

From the Ground Up: Creating a House on a Lake 

“A house on a lake, not a lake house.” That’s what homeowners Frank and Vicki Pamelia requested of the design and style of their Lake Oconee home. Although they had retired and moved from their home in Indiana, their new home on Lake Oconee in Georgia would be their new primary residence, one that would feel all the comforts and warmth they wanted as empty nesters but also would be home to their grown children for holidays and summertime visits. “Our builders were great, but we truly must thank our design team at Enjolè Interiors who touched every room to design this home.”house on a lake in georgia

Selecting Enjole Interiors to Travel to Georgia 

The best way to create a space clients will love is to begin with a design concept, and in most cases, that’s selecting the right design team for you. “Tammy and I are twins separated at birth. We think alike.” Vicki said. “The communication is almost non-verbal. What Tammy was able to do was to bring out things that I didn’t know were there.”

At Enjolè, we always start a project by discussing client likes and dislikes, and then we start to bring in different pieces of design, colors, patterns, furniture…etc. to see what direction the client is looking to go. “It was amazing to see how well Tammy and Frank clicked, as well. 

He had so much faith and confidence in Tammy. The project kind of exploded, in a great way, when Tammy was bringing things to us and Frank said, ‘Oh I love that!’” 

Within no time, we got an idea of the clients style by showing them examples and we started to take their lake home from dirt to drapes.

Deciding on a Color Palette  

“When we began discussing color, that’s when [Enjole designer] Margy Foster came in. She is such a ying to Tammy’s yang. Margy’s design experience was so helpful to our finished product, and I loved her vision,” Vicki said.  

“Then, as luck would have, a fabric we designed around became discontinued,” Vicki recalls. It’s times like this that call for a designer to get creative. In this case, Margy was determined to find the client’s beloved fabric, and it was a success. “We couldn’t believe it!” Vicki said. “Margy saved the day and found 40 yards of our fabric.” However, it’s important to remember that luck might not be on your side, so having a back-up fabrics to flow with designated color schemes.house on a lakeUsing the Old to Create the New 

One way you make a house home is by incorporating pieces of your past and memories you’ve made along the way. “Our builder actually had a designer for us to use,” Vicki recalls. “We had a photo album of 400 furniture and decor pieces, some that were our must-haves to stay with us as we started our new build, and the other designer said she could not work with this. We showed the same thing to Tammy and Margy, and they said they could. It was a no-brainer who we wanted as our design team.” 

Thus, the work began on creating a traditional/transitional and eclectic style home for Frank and Vicki. One of the projects Enjolè completed was a recreation of a chandelier. “We knew this was one of the pieces the couple wanted to keep, so we got creative,” Tammy said. “Instead of the plastic balls originally on the light, we opted for crystals and gave them 3 different options for price. They opted for the median range, which worked out perfectly, and we replaced nearly 100 plastic balls with crystals. It turned out beautiful.” 

The creativity didn’t stop there. Our design team was also able to create a feature wall at the landing of the staircase that featured a built-in bookcase. Frank enjoys bourbon, so we added 2 bourbon bars downstairs and repurposed 2 lamps in the queen’s suite. “Another project we loved creating was the war memorial cabinet,” Margy said. “Both of the homeowners’ fathers were in World War 2, so we put together a special cabinet to honor them. We could tell they were truly touched.”

“They were able to work with everything we love, and now, we are surrounded by it. We couldn’t ask for more,” Vicki and Frank agreed.

Think Outside the Box

When you start from the ground up, designers are often challenged to “think outside of the box” to make things work and recreate the vision homeowners have in mind, which can prove to be difficult, especially when there’s a list of must-haves to repurpose alongside the new.  

“Vicki and I knew our visions wouldn’t be easy to recreate, but every step of the way, our minds were blown,” Frank said. “They had a piece of furniture custom made to hide my TV. Tammy and the furniture maker designed it to match the corbells in the bar and the kitchen. The idea was brilliant!” 

“We would have never thought of the concepts that Tammy and Margy brought, but they are some of the most special features that we now enjoy in our home,” said Vicki.

Designing the kitchen also proved to be a challenge. “We know white kitchens are all the rage, but I like wood,” Vicki said. “Tammy talked me into a white kitchen with touches of wood, which were brought to life with the bourbon bar, coffee bar and wine bar. And the kitchen cabinets are an antique white, with a glaze over it. It’s something I have never seen before. They executed it perfectly.”

When building a home, there’s no one right way. Each homeowner has their own vision. Their own style. Don’t ever feel like you have to let items and memories go to create a new space. There is something special about making the old new again and forevering cherishing items that brought you so many precious memories.  

“Some of our most rewarding projects are those that involve a vacation home or a new home as empty nesters. We want our clients to know that we are here for you, and we are able and capable of traveling to your project,” says Tammy.

A Space for Family: Neutral, Coastal + Chic Retreat for an Illinois Client to Escape

Even amidst Enjolé’s big move to our new home in Newburgh, our design team has been busy with clients all over the midwest, including this light + airy + elegant family room and dining room space for a client in Illinois.

Creating a Vibe for the Space

“One of the things I love most about this job is the ability to decorate for friends.” Brittney Schipp, Director of Design at Enjolé Interiors said. “This client was actually someone I worked with several years ago, and I loved getting the opportunity to help her create this space.” For this design, we tackled a new addition / home remodel, and went with the light and bright feel for the space, bringing in some neutral white – and accenting with blues and other soft hues.

Once the color palette came together, we were able to create the coastal chic oasis this client envisioned.

Traditional Design Accents for a Kid-Friendly Space

This client was also passionate about a design that would stand the test of time — both the design elements and wear and tear from kids. “I decided to choose some kid-friendly performance fabrics that I knew would give her peace of mind with kids, andincorporated some texture into the space with pillows and a rug.” Brittney explained. 

Timeless Furniture Choices to Welcoming All

Some of our favorite furniture designers to use for spaces like this client wanted are Vanguard and Sherrill. They have been built and tested to withstand the test of time and are perfect for families.

 “The client and I loved this durable Vanguard dining room table and chairs.” Brittney said. “It’s a perfect choice to match her traditional, coastal vibe, and stand up against kids.”

Above the table, we chose a chandelier by Gabby to tie everything together and added a soft, blush pink floral arrangement as a centerpiece. 

For the living room, the client was also in search of something traditional and durable. So, we decided on this beautiful, modern marble and gold accented cocktail table from Vanguard and added some contrast to the space with 2 coastal blue striped chairs from Sherrill Furniture and some neutral, brown leather Motion Craft recliners — also an extension of Sherrill furniture. Pairing these pieces next to a bright white sofa created a timeless living room this family will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

Whether you’re in need of a refresh or a redesign… a mature space to entertain or one to withstand your growing family, let the design team at Enjolé Interiors help you bring your design dreams to life. Contact us today at (812) 706-9906 to learn more!

Creating a Colorful Living Room Space for a Newburgh Client to Love

From the moment we started hiring designers here at Enjolé Interiors, we knew the most important quality would be their passion for design. And, we think we’ve done a pretty great job of creating a team of designers that love to create dream spaces for our clients… our Margy is no exception!

A Modern Living Room with a Splash of Color

“When I started this project, the only thing the clients wanted to keep was the existing area rug.” Margy said “It can be challenging when a client is attached to a certain piece, but I was up to the test.” 

The first thing these clients mentioned was the color orange. They loved it, and wanted to try to work it into the space however possible. And, that’s just what we did. We added brightly orange patterned accent pillows next to a cozy, neutral colored couch by CR Laine and hung some colorful wall art — you can see how it just pulls all the color into the space.

Tactfully Accessorizing 

living roomAs we started to add furniture and decor to the space, we knew it had to be done carefully for all the colors to remain tasteful. “The Cheryl Ottoman was a little bit tricky because of the pattern, but it ended up working really well.” Margy said. This client also wanted a little bit of whimsy, with a pop of contemporary style, so we added in decor pieces like the circular lamp, modern circular sculptures, palm leaves and a mix of metals to marry the two designs together. We were also able to marry these 2 design elements together in the mantle, adding coordinating shelves on each side for balance and a circular wooden mirror in the middle. 

Our client had one specific request for the remaining pieces of furniture… “They didn’t want it to be matchy-matchy.” Margy recalls. “Specifically… the end tables. They wanted variety and for each to be small.” We listened, making each sitting space it’s own “station.” To finish, we added some sleek recliners in a classic herringbone fabric and a small bench for their grandchildren to enjoy the space as well.

Styling a Bar to Entertain

living room interior design projectThe final statement piece in this space was the bar. The Lexington Furniture double-door bar’s design makes it easy to open and close when needed and features a bright teal color interior, which we were able to play off the artwork in the living room and entryway. This was just another piece that was able to pull the space together incorporating the fun color they love, modern design and mixing metals.

Whether it is color you’re looking to add to your space or a special piece that inspires your design, our interior decorating team works within your vision and dream. 

We bring our own expertise and passion, but this is your project, not ours.

Susan Hyatt’s Home: A Space that “Wows”

susan hyatt home creating a space that wow

Designing custom spaces for our clients is one of our favorite things to do. We get the opportunity to not only bring our client’s design vision to life, but express ourselves through design. Recently, our team got the opportunity to work with Master Certified Life And Business Coach Susan Hyatt, and her husband Scott. Susan Hyatt is known as one of the world’s leading voices on mindset, motivation, and inspiring women to be unstoppable. Susan wanted people to walk in and say, “Oh My God!” And, she entrusted her recent home and office redesign to the interior design team at Enjolé.

Creating an Entryway that “Wows”

“Oh my, are you kidding right now?!” This response was the inspiration Susan put into our minds for the overall wow factor upon entering the home. So, we knew the entryway needed to speak volumes. We incorporated coordinating decor with the existing art piece and added a marble tile flooring to create a show-stopping entry. The neutral color palette brings it all together and pulls in the rest of the house.

A Dining Room Inspired by Art

This room was a blank space that continually evolved, using the Beyonce artwork as inspiration for the room. “I found the artist on Instagram, and Susan loved her art. The design came together once we incorporated the painting… it’s amazing how you plan a room around great art,” Tammy said.

“From there, we added in custom drapery, repurposed an old piece of furniture and accessorized the space with unique pieces from our in-store collection and a gorgeous floral arrangement by Candis, from our team here at Enjole.”

This space also includes Susan’s favorite design feature: built-in cabinets from Fehrenbacher Cabinets — an idea she’s had since they first moved in. Susan and Scott love keeping the lights on inside to showcase the beauty of the piece.

A Cozy Living Room Design 

“I love nothing more than curling up in my chair next to the fire, especially during the winter months,” Susan confessed. So, we knew we wanted to create a cozy, welcoming space. We brought in a Cheryl leather chair that’s electric and reclines for comfort. Next, we added in accessories that matched Susan’s driven personality and played with darker, stronger features like the brown pillows and large cocktail table to ground the space and pull it all together. The living room is finished off with drapery — double entendre with velvet, to create a dramatic effect, which can’t be ignored when you enter the room. 

Playing with Color in the Office

Susan Hyatt’s office –– where the true magic happens! We could not let her down here. The client wanted the room to reflect a CEO’s office, and encompass a female empowerment vibe, while being fun and fresh. So, we brought in a desk by Vanguard and added in a fun pink and gold chair to give us a pop of color and added in some gold and pink in the drapes for even more empowering, fun color. To add an extra layer to space, we brought in some artwork from Frances Cadora for the wall and a painting by Ross Webb to be placed on the desk.

A Powder Room with Custom Art

The final space our design team was able to create was a powder room. “We were able to paint the ceilings in this space, which is something we’re not able to do often.” Tammy admitted. “It made sense for the design because we were able to pull in color and connect it with a piece of art that the client’s husband had made for her — so special!” The space was complete with custom cabinetry, and we repurposed the original chandelier from the dining room.

If you don’t say, “Wow” walking into this space, try walking in for a second time. The design speaks for itself in Susan Hyatt’s home. It is amazing how our interior design team was able to create that wow factor, while making guests feel cozy, at home and welcome the minute they walk through the Hyatt’s home. “What an honor it was to work with Susan Hyatt one-on-one in her home.” Tammy said. “Her drive is contagious and gave us further motivation to create a space that inspires one of the most inspirational women we know.”

A New Year + Our New Store Front in Historic Newburgh Takes Shape

New Storefront in NewburghThough our first home on Main Street in downtown Evansville will always hold a special place in our hearts, we have so much excitement ahead as we make plans for our new store, or as we like to call it, our “Enchanted Home,” in Newburgh. As we embark on a substantial renovation of the 180 year old building, we couldn’t imagine not taking you along with us for the ride.

History at 10388 IN-662 in Newburgh

After acquiring the space from Bill Fortson and John Clements, we learned so much about the history of the former BJ’s Accents property and how their business came to life. New Store in Old BJ's BuildingBJs was once home to a frame shop, located on the top floor, and a floral shop, located on the lower level before it evolved into a furniture, home accents and interior design business.

And when the historic home was to be demolished, Bill and John had other plans. The two had become friends and worked together at a bank for years, allowing them the opportunity to learn about the property.

new store in old BJ's building

Creating a Vision for our new store, our “Enchanted Home”

“To say that we have an exact design in mind… No, we really don’t plan to stay confined to one look,” Tammy reveals. “But, we have so many ideas, hopes and dreams for what the space will become. We plan to appeal to many different aesthetics in our space. We do like a southern living vibe to match the architecture of the building, it has a very Georgian style charm!” We are excited about creating more room for retail space and filling every square inch with the best brands and merchandise. As we take down walls and make the space our own, we’ll also be creating an incredible design center for our team, as well as a place for our team to consult with other designers and clients.

“We have this vision of making Enjole more than just a store… We see it becoming a destination,” shares Tammy. Imagine french doors at the back of the building opening up to an outdoor living space that will be an extension of the store and a place to easily pick up purchased items. 

We want our new space to become a hub for designers in surrounding cities to collaborate with us, whether they’re from Louisville, Nashville or beyond.
