The A List
The A List: Brockschmidt & Coleman
Brockschmidt & Coleman’s work often focuses on traditional detailing, proportion, materials, and craftsmanship in both architectural elements and in furnishings.
Working with artisans to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces is one of the most gratifying parts of the design process – for both us and our clients. Details like custom-embroidered linens, hand-blocked wallpapers, or specially designed furniture not only give a layered richness to rooms, but are instant heirlooms.
Unpretentious, effortless style, rooted in centuries of living with history and antiquities.
Traveling and soaking up details of architecture and decorative arts. Cornice profiles from Frances Elkins’s Monterrey Living Room, tadelackt plaster from Morocco, and decorative painting schemes from a Sicilian palace have all found their way into projects.
Describe your design approach and philosophy.
Color. It is the simplest, most effective, and least expensive design tool.
To be surrounded by people and things and that bring you joy – and to have time to enjoy it all!
