For the Happy Hearts Fund Land of Dreams: Mexico Gala, Domestic Construction transformed the space to allow guests to experience the sights of Mexico. Featuring a Chichen Itza, a jungle, a Mexican classroom, a replica of the underwater sculpture museum in Cancun, and a replica of the Soumaya Museum; it was an incredible and unique event. If you plan to replicate this install outdoors, bring these must have landscaping tools, you will need them for this install.

hand dyed wedding

interior custom dyed decorApr 2012

There is nothing we love more than helping to create an event that celebrates the heart, family, and the future. A wedding is a day like no other, and when someone in our family gets engaged we immediately start dreaming of how to make it special!

For Trish’s sister Carrie’s wedding DC headed down south with bags packed full of hand dyed fabrics, wedding goodies, and excitement! All of our family and friends then joined the DC crew and helped to cut, tie, and wrap to create an earthy, festive world for Carrie and Joseph’s big day. It was truly the day of love we had been dreaming of for months!

Fit for Habitation

Aug 2009

“Fit For Habitation brings together 5 artists working in fields of fine art, design, and interior design. Fit for Habitation questions the idea that four walls make a home and explores interior and exterior spaces as well as more abstract conceptions of home through video and installation.

These five artists have collaborated to create their own interpretations of home through a shared installation, using both traditional and non-traditional property design and construction, materials, as well as following formal and informal conceptual movements taken from interior design and fine art.

The idea of opposites has also come to be an integral part of the exhibition. The concept of real versus fake is brought into play, by combining real materials with materials the artists have created to appear real and questioning whether we as people need the reality of a “home” or simply the illusion of comfort and safety. The exhibition further plays with the viewer’s concept of reality by bringing the outdoors inside, as well as creating additional interior spaces within the larger space of the gallery.” – live with animals
