Los Angeles Based Shaping Spaces Group Interiors Turns 5 This Year

February 8, 2013 – Los Angeles  interior design firm Shaping Spaces Group turns 5 this year. Owner Tanya Griffin says it has been a challenge keeping a luxury design business alive through the economic downturn. “It hasn’t always been a smooth ride, however I was determined to hang on by the very last thread and dust myself off once the storm had passed,” Tanya said. “Last year we doubled our numbers from the previous year and we continue to thrive and grow with many opportunities on deck. It certainly wouldn’t have been possible without the loving support of my family who have been there since day one when I decided to leave Corporate America as a designer and start her own company.” Shaping Spaces Group Interiors is a full service boutique design firm that offers consulting, full remodels, room redesigns, home staging and more for commercial spaces.

Take a Seat

Chairs give us comfort and they make it easier to do certain activities, such as eat and browse the internet.  But chairs can do a lot more than just give us seating; they are also a great way to bring in some style and flair.  Why not bring in your favorite designs and materials with an awesome arm chair or lounge?

Why don’t we usually care about the chairs we sit in?  Probably because there is nothing special about them and just seem to be tools that get you through the day.  However, unique and interesting chairs can really make your room pop and make a statement!

                The above chair is great because it brings in traditional features with contemporary touches.   Add something like this to a traditional space to feel more modern and updated without straying too far from the traditional vibe.  Or add it to a very modern space for a grounded feel.  Another way to make a traditional room feel more updated is to reupholster the chairs and sofas in modern looking fabrics or bright colors.

Cool looking chairs can also be used as a conversation piece.  It could be a chair brought back from traveling or just something you picked up at a local store.  These chairs would not necessarily be for seating but rather for look and feel.  They can also be actual functional pieces of furniture (other than to sit in) like this picture above.  There is no reason why armchairs can’t be a way to store knickknacks or books.   This specific chair can be wheeled around anywhere with ease!  Put it in the living room or office to make a statement.

Chairs can be anything you want them to be!  Above, this armchair is doubling as ambient lighting.  It could be a terrific way to have a night light for kids or to light up an area that is extremely dark at night.  This kind of chair could blend its way into modern and traditional areas as well.  The pattern is more traditional while the design is more contemporary.  There are many other styles and shapes of this kind of lighted chair as well.  Just look around!

Create a unique and fresh feel to your outdoor space with this rounded lounge chair.  It is contemporary in design yet it looks inviting to sit in, a wonderful combination when trying to get that modern look.  The rattan adds texture to the space and it also makes the space feel warmer. 

This chaise is a perfect way to add comfort as well as style, which sometimes don’t go together as one.  Some people may sacrifice one for the other but there is no reason why you can’t have both!

There is no reason why chairs can’t be cool and cozy!  You just have to find the right one for you.

Is your bedroom lacking pizzazz?  Are you feeling board?  A few changes can always fix that.  Here are some affordable bedroom makeover tips that will uplift and shake up your bedroom for little to nothing.

  1. Organize everything!  Sometimes putting everything in its place is just what a room needs to feel alive again.  Organizing can do wonders and after this step, you may not even feel like you need to do anything else!  When things are cluttered it makes your life feel cluttered too.  It can also make you feel restless and uneasy in your room that is supposed to be for relaxing.  Go through your things and throw away anything you can.  This will make it easier later when you organize the rest.  Then pick out what you want to keep out and what you want stored away.  The things you keep out should be pictures, sentimental items, and other things that you like.  The things you store can be anything you don’t want to see all the time or anything you don’t have room for.  Remember, organizing will cost you little to no money!


  1. The main focus of your bedroom is your bed, so switching your sheets, bed spread, or duvet covers to something new and bright would bring a whole new life to your room.  However, you don’t have to always use bright colors to make a statement.  Having stripes or a wild pattern in muted tones would be just as bold.  Another inexpensive way to spruce up your bedroom is to get a few throw pillows that are of bold patterns and prints.  Drapes are another wonderful and inexpensive way to bring color into your room.  This is an area, instead of your bed, where you can bring in a unique pattern.  Ceiling to floor window treatments will also help the room feel taller!
  2. Paint can do wonders when you want a big transformation in your bedroom.  Paint is the ultimate way to set the mood for your room.  If you want your bedroom to be relaxing, a cool blue like (Dunn Edwards #DE5743 Silver Spruce) or (Benjamin Moore #AF-415 Grasshopper) soft green would do the trick.  If you want your room to feel cozy and warm, a mid-tone chocolate or rust will be the right touch to make your bedroom inviting.  You don’t have to go all out with the paint, though.  Another way to have a pop in your room is to paint just an accent wall a different color than the others.  This way if you want a really outrageous color, you won’t overwhelm the room with it.  Ideally your wall of color should be a focal wall for example the wall your bed is on or a wall with a large picture window.  One gallon of paint is usually around $30!
  3. Other ways to create a feeling of a new room is to add embellishments to things that you already own.  Add some beaded fringe to lamp shades or change out your old drawer pulls with new ones that are glass or in a bright color.  These would only be a few dollars each.  Switching your lamp shades for new ones is another great way to add some spice into your space and incorporate.  Remember to be creative with your changes and do something that you love!
