The Fig House project, update #4

Big renovations, like raising children, are mostly fun at the very beginning and the very end. The ‘teenage’ years of both (or so I’ve heard) are best to just block out. At the beginning you are busy pulling together the art direction, trolling for inspiration, playing with color palettes, and prematurely buying crazy awesome pieces. It’s stupidly fun.

But then you get told that you have to move all the plumbing and that the electrical inspector is putting you behind two weeks and that the air conditioning is 10 times the amount of the original quote. And don’t even mention the word ‘permit’ on site. It’s all fine, doable, and par for the course, but the middle part of a major job is just full of logistics, coordination, codes, permits, and general annoying minutiae. Man, I hate minutiae.

Well, folks, we are through the teenage years of The Fig House project and I finally get to decorate. In case you haven’t been following along, check out post #1, #2, and #3.

So here’s what is happening, friends. We got us some dope art:

The Fig House art

These are just some of the artists whose work is showing at The Fig house, thanks to Daniele Krysa (aka, the Jealous Curator).

The mood board of finishes is getting solidified (although a few wallpapers from Farrow and Ball are missing on that bad boy):

The Fig House inspiration

Resources: Paint colors ‘Mere Green’ and ‘Teresas Green,’ both from Farrow and Ball. Lotus Wallpaper, Farrow and Ball. Hudson Valley Jasper Sconce (black) and Hudson Valley Cortland Sconce, both from LampsPlus. All the other pieces — mirrors, tables and molding are custom made, designed by me and my team.

Meanwhile I’m getting my flea market on:

The Fig house furniture

The vintage furniture hoarding is in FULL force. These beauties above are now at the upholsterers getting into some of the most delectable fabrics ever. About 15 more pieces are headed to get redone.

But that’s not even the best part. Stop what you are doing and marvel at the stained glass panels that we are having made by Judson Studios:

The Fig House stained glass

I’ve never been so excited about one single design element in a space I’ve worked on. There are 12 of them and they are incredible. That’s Tim up there, from Judson Studios, who was the designer that helped me come up with the design and color palette. Gosh darn genius, that guy.

In other news you’ll notice ON THE RIGHT SIDEBAR that I finally got my MailChimp account set up. So now friends, you can subscribe to to receieve the blog via email, subscribe to my newsletter where you’ll get some news that I’m too scared to post but don’t mind emailing out (curious … aren’t you?) and of course Feedly, Bloglovin, and RSS feed is all set up. If you have ANY problems with these please let me know so I can get them fixed.

So what ya’ll think about The Fig House? Get engaged again, folks, because this is the place to get married, folks.

  1. LOVE the turquoise settee!! What color did you decide to go with for the new fabric on this piece? Looks like the place is really coming together. Congrats! :)

    • Emily

      That’s actually the only piece that i’m not recovering. It was just done and its pretty awesome. Thanks!

  2. The red chairs look kind of harsh, or is it because of the strong light?

    • Emily

      Probably. We are reupholstering them, but yeah the instagram is blown out a bit.

  3. Nicole M.

    Can I get married all over again!? Maybe I can just renew my vows or have an awesome party there! The Fig House is going to be absolutely fantastic! There is so much thought out design going on in there that a bride/groom won’t even have to do anything to the space (perfect for anyone on a budget)! I can’t WAIT to see everything come together :)
    I am curious…are you doing a custom bar at all?? And what are the floors going to look like?

  4. That stained glass is too much! I really love how fresh and modern it feels. I can’t wait to see this space come together…seems like a huge undertaking, but I know you and your team will kill it!

  5. Sheila

    Gorgeous glass art! Can’t wait to see the “afters” on those amazing flea market finds.

  6. Wow! Can’t wait to see this in all of it’s glory. I’m dying over the modern take on stained glass–a wonderful concept that will have such an impact.

  7. LOVE IT ALL! I am so so excited to see the finished space. It is so fun reading along through your process. I too totally love those stained glass installations! We just bought our very first house… a 100 year old charmer rife with original stained glass but a few windows had some of their stained glass stolen… I’m actually taking a stained glass class in the fall and am planning on doing some more modern windows in various parts of our house. These are perfection and great inspiration!

  8. Amanda

    Looks amazing! You know, what I love most about the spaces you design is how happy they are. So you + wedding venue = perfect match. You and the Fig House should totally get married.

  9. sg5785

    Wow! The flea market finds are unbelieveable, especially the curved wing chairs! Well done Emily!

  10. Rae Ann

    All of this is insanely beautiful and beyond fun! As for your comment about hating minutiae, I would have ti say there is construction minutiae, a drag and then there is design minutiae which you are so very good at. As they say, it’s all in the details.

  11. Love love love the art! – well curated for sure. Been fun to follow the updates on this project. Cannot WAIT to see the final pics. Also, will be sure to sign up for the newsletters – yes very curious!!

  12. jHill

    That stained glass is AMAZINGLY beautiful. those colors!!

  13. Can’t wait to see the slew of posts ala Country Living when this project is finished! These little glimpses and teases are killing me! Knew Danielle was gonna find some amazing artwork!

  81. Cet article examine les motifs de deux groupes de travailleuses pour s’adresser ou pas à la Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail du Québec (CSST) pour des lésions perues comme étant liées au travail. Il est basé sur des entrevues qualitatives auprès de 16 enseignantes et de 16 préposées à l’aide domestique. Pour les deux groupes, les motifs de non recours incluent la croyance que la CSST existe essentiellement pour les accidents et les retraits préventifs des femmes enceintes, l’image de la CSST comme un organisme qui accorde difficilement des indemnisations ainsi que la difficulté perue de prouver le lien entre le travail et le problème de santé. Pour les préposées, le manque à gagner entre les prestations et le revenu d’emploi est aussi un facteur tandis que pour les enseignantes l’accès relativement facile à une assurance salaire joue contre le recours à la CSST. De plus, pour bien comprendre les choix des répondantes, il faut tenir compte de leur rapport à leur emploi et à leur santé et de la culture de leur milieu de travail.
