Meadowbank Updates

What’s New!

What a whirlwind the start of 2017 has been! The holidays came in hot and had us busy beyond belief, which was a great way to wrap up 2016. And with the turn of a new year, we relish in the chance to refresh, reset and kick-off some exciting new projects!

So what have we been up to? Here’s a glimpse into some behind the scenes work with the Meadowbank Team.

Be sure to check back for additional projects, updates and upcoming travel.

You can also follow along via our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages!

Lately…

To our lovely readers,

We apologize for the radio silence! Spring is here and boy, are we BUSY! So let’s play catch up on what you may have missed, and fill you in on what we have been up to!

Toward the end of 2015 we were thrilled to be featured in the October edition of Mainline Today! (Pg. 40 if you can get your hands on a hard copy). This article is a great read on one of our favorite projects. It also provides some fantastic visual inspiration if you are a lover of all things blue and white (pssst did you know you can pin images directly from the online article?!).

Speaking of Pinterest, we have given our account a total facelift and have lots of great new boards and pins for you to follow. You can also find all of our own work featured on the “Meadowbank Designs – Our Work” board. Follow along with us by clicking here and get ready to feel (P)inspired! Our Instagram account is another great way to stay connected as it’s full of sneak peaks and custom projects!

If the online world isn’t your thing, but you’re still searching of some serious design inspo, be sure to pick up the Decorating with Carpets coffee table book by Ashley Stark Kenner and Chad Stark. We are featured on pg. 152 (humble brag) but trust us, this entire book is jam packed with creative ideas, gorgeous vignettes, and serious design talent. It would make a perfect gift for your design school graduate or interior loving friend!

If you’re a loyal reader of Philadelphia Style magazine like we are, you may have caught our very own Laura Buchner dishing on the top interior design trends of the season! We were super excited to have been selected to share our thoughts on this because there are so many great design trends happening right now – it’s hard to pick just one! We had to give it up to metallics though!

“This season we are loving metallic details. They’re showing up in wallpaper, trims, fabrics, and even carpet. Just a touch of shimmer is all you need to be up-to-date on this trend!” —Laura Buchner, principal partner of Meadowbank Designs

With a great 2015 under our belts, 2016 had some big shoes to fill! Luckily it has yet to disappoint. We kicked off the year being recognized at the IDA awards for our work on the Buttonwood project (Fun Fact: This project was so intricate, it took about 10 years to complete! You can trust no detail was left untouched). The hard work sure paid off landing us 1st place in the Residential Single Family Residence category! We want to extend a big thank you to the IDA for the recognition – what a fun night!

Have you all heard about Incollect? This is a great design resource to bookmark on your browser. You can search all of our projects here and can also shop for gorgeous, carefully curated pieces (think fine art, furniture, antiques etc). We had an awesome feature in their e-newsletter this past week. Read more about it here!

Things have been really rolling here, and we have expanded our team! You will be seeing (or hearing from) our newest member around the office, Elle Knighton, who is our new Marketing and Operations Manager. She is a native of our town who recently returned from living in Washington, DC after a stint at Living Social where she brought all kinds of “cool” to that brand. Maybe she can make us cool too?? We are thrilled to have her and the energy she brings to our company, not to mention she is just about the sweetest person around. Bonus!

All in all the past few months have been hard work coupled with tremendous fun. We are so thankful for all of our clients, vendors and supporters who keep us busy and doing what we love!  We hope you will continue to check back as we have lots of exciting projects and features coming up.
