Design Partner Feature: Elizabeth Malmo Interior Design

Spring has always been known as the season for cleansing and renewal. 

And recently, as winter was coming to a close and spring was starting to bloom, we at Icon had a cleansing of our own... 

We completely "refreshed" our Boca Raton showroom by clearing out the existing items and replacing them with 150 of the newest luxury lighting fixtures from the industry's top designers. 

If you live in – or are passing through – the South Florida area, you should stop by and take a look at our newly-designed space. You won't be disappointed!

You can find the Showroom address here.

And below you'll find our May Designer Feature, Memphis-based residential and commercial design firm Elizabeth Malmo Design.

Grounded in tradition but with a keen understanding of modern gestures, Elizabeth Malmo's style is characterized by a love of cozy glamour, her use of high and low design elements, and a thoughtful attention to detail and color.

All three of the projects we're featuring – a kitchen, a breakfast nook and a powder room –  are aesthetically light and bright, which is perfect for our spring issue!

You'll even spot some tulips, the ultimate springtime flower, on the breakfast nook's table :)

Kitchen

How gorgeous is this modern farmhouse, open-concept kitchen?

Because the space is so large, Elizabeth needed to incorporate multiple light fixtures throughout the kitchen.

She ended up placing two Lily Hanging Shades over the island and a Boston Functional Library Light above each sink... all of which have matching brass finishes that go well with the teal barstools.

Breakfast Nook

As Elizabeth was designing this cozy, quaint breakfast nook, she was on the hunt for one medium-sized pendant to put above the dining table.

And because she wanted a fixture that would add a nice pop of color to complement the soft tones of the dining chairs and walls, she chose the Goodman Hanging Light.

We love how the Goodman makes a subtle, stylish statement in this compact dining room... but doesn't take away from the other airy elements.

Powder Room

Because she wanted to place two decorative lights in this powder room, Elizabeth knew she needed matching fixtures that were simple, had clean lines and could add an elegant touch to the space.

Selecting the Bryant Sconce in a hand-rubbed, antique brass finish allowed her to accomplish just that.

Additionally, the Bryant is the perfect size for the sink space and it provides just the right amount of light for the vanity area... making the "getting ready" process easy and enjoyable!
