The Instrumentation of Metal 'N' Light

Defined by the ubiquitous influence on music, the Grovenor House residence lends itself to the sophistication of RS3 Designs résumé.  From the tonal sensibilities of metallic slates, bronze, coppers, and brass's, to art inspired wall pieces, the glissando of light interacts with the elements creating a progression of interior fluidity. Shannon Scott adds, "The design preferences on this project were all product driven to comprise technical ingenuity that would give the interiors a fusion of style that meets a classy edge, keeping in tune with the client's individuality and lifestyle. Raymond and I collaborated with masters of their crafts and brought in bold, masculine statements. We wanted to create something special, giving understated hints of how the interiors would communicate different dimensions of observation throughout the space." Slide-6 grovernor-project "One of the most profound and unique components is in the ceiling design with German-based recessed lighting from Eden," shares Raymond. The directional light fixtures glow a spotlight on the guitars.IMAGE 3 LED strip lighting intermingles with the copper beams and slate floors as it becomes a rhythmical body of expression. image 7 Electromagnetic track lighting is angled over the library and cornerstones the materiality of rustic monotones, the metal chair, and copper end table.

The Versatility of Modernism

With a foreseen conceptual passion, what drives Raymond and Shannon's ingenuity is to conquer challenging projects with precise execution, turning capricious fantasies into realities. From the ultra-modern to transitional, the constant variable that transcends through all of their work is their implementation of architectural lighting and composition of textiles.
Apartment 429 A one-bedroom, 1400-square-foot loft-style residence was converted into a two-bedroom unit by closing off what was formally considered the dining area. The frosted glass partition manages to maintain a unique depth and perception, while the new custom-designed table made of glass, chrome, and white lacquered wood perfectly sits the family of four. Ceiling and lighting design allows for the white, black, and silver color scheme to take its leaner and sharp effects. The installation of wavy metallic wallpaper alongside the entire west wall leading from the foyer, through the staircase and, into the living room brought the design in unison.
The ARTECH residence in Aventura was no exception. With a blank canvas of bare white walls, concrete floors, and a metal staircase, RS3 brought in their trajectory by adding a monochromatic color scheme that packs a punch besides Miesian aesthetics. Raymond expounds, " This project was the perfect opportunity to illustrate our take on modern design. In '2010, the trend in Miami modernity was to keep everything white on white. The client wanted a Miami condo, we gave them a Miami condo with class." "In retrospect, the subtleties in the design of the property were inspired by two of our favorite practices Yabu Pushelberg and Meyer Davis. From Meyer Davis, we concentrated on how the client would experience shape and form, and from Yabu Pushelberg we integrated custom contemporary accents that brought the narrative to life. The more personalized a design, the more involved for our clients to participate in it." Shannon expresses, "Contemporary design is a form of relevance to current times. Whether transitionally, inclined or modern, it's about what is being influenced. The materiality of black stainless steels and natural woods, especially oak are becoming more immersive in today's projects. Mid-Century Modernism has become contemporary today with fine, custom-built furniture pieces that utilize the richness of teaks, oaks, rosewood and walnut finishes. This, alongside warm and vibrant color tones, brass finishes, and some unique mid-century light fixtures, all fall under this new "modern"/ "mid-century modern umbrella." "Predominantly, design is about creating a balance between the pragmatic and the intuitive", utters Raymond. An inevitable movement for RS3 Designs is to create an accessory/bedding line that will showcase the lifestyle, passion, and creativity of their brand.

Today's trend-setters translate interior movements into feeling environments

"GOOD Design DOESN'T DATE." - HARRY SEIDLER

The conversation of your living space is the existential connection between your surroundings that accentuates your individuality. The proficiency of design is more than random, customized elements to enhance a space. It's about creating stories through personal experiences that provoke a dialogue. The dynamic team of RS3 DESIGNS, Shannon Scott and Raymond Jimenez are gaining national notoriety for the way in which they use their instrumentation of architectural lighting design and versatility of tactile gesture to instill the music of people's lives. When query about their aesthetic rumination, "Our éclat is about creating timeless movements. We cultivate trends that communicate style and dimension." Raymond enunciates, "We sire the content of your desires." Their progression of elevation within the industry has given them class recognition and awarded them unprecedented wunderkind in a competitive field. The tale begins when Shannon and Raymond met at Miami International University of Art & Design in '2008-'2009. Upon graduation, Raymond procured a job at Avant Design, an international interior design firm that specializes in high-end residential spaces. Before long, Shannon joined Raymond as an intern, and they established a working rapport that would come to define their métier. The duo's polyphony and hunger for innovation, led them to the inception with their own venture; RS3 DESIGNS. From event planning to hanger designs for Bloomingdale's and Macy's, and creating bespoke floral arrangements on yachts; they got their big break when Shannon met Carol Teti-Keesler from Decorative Crafts at the Dcota. (Design Center of the Americas) Carol had a fondness for Shannon and Ray's harmonious vicissitude in conceptual directives, that she made an introduction to Murat Ceritoglu who wanted a renovation. This not only became their first residential project but the benchmark that catapulted their career. Shannon expounds, "It was as if we were in a dream. One day we were in an opening practice in Fort Lauderdale and the next we're flying first class to Istanbul to select the finest of silk wallpapers and Turkish carpets. We were exploring the world and craved the experience and challenge of it all." Envisaging their destiny, the MURANO PORTOFINO project was graced in over 20 publications and the firm expanded with projects throughout South Florida; Chicago, Rhode Island, New York, Aspen, and Michigan, to name a few. Since then, they moved their offices into the Miami Design District and have distinguished a prominent following.

When it comes to designing a room, sometimes the best piece of art to hang in your space is one that you create yourself. For example, the orchid photo above. This was an original piece we created to bring in one of our client’s favorite colors with a splash of red against an otherwise black and gray palette. Artwork can take many forms that add a special touch, such as a blown up black and white photograph with a splash of color like we created, a hand-painted canvas,  a full color photograph or even an arrangement of clear rings hung atop wavy textured wallpaper like this: 005903-copy Blending DIY pieces and ready-made art in a unified collection like we did below is another option. Several framed shells that could have stood alone create a more dramatic effect by hanging as one piece. 10527778_809315652426634_2119793139231769556_n Don’t be afraid to put your own spin on your design when mass produced pieces aren’t speaking to you.

Decorating with white and neutral tones is the perfect way to give a room an elegant touch. Here are a few recent projects where we used white furnishings throughout the design. orleans-chateau-and-villas-bedroom Above is the bedroom we completed at Orleans Chateau & Villas in South Florida.

The rectangular cocktail table is from Jalan Jalan and features a petrified wood top with a chrome base. Notice how the table is pieced together with various individual inlays. 10511370_809314149093451_3042325673876323046_n To add a touch of color, we matched geometrically patterned throw pillows with a vibrant shade of burnt orange. The ivory down feather sofa and linen loveseat are from Lee Industries — and they’re as comfortable as they look. 65938_809315645759968_5628895083080465838_n We brought the outside in with this beachy-chic wall art from Pottery Barn. Notice how the seashell-themed throw pillow accents the overall theme of the room. 10527778_809315652426634_2119793139231769556_n   Check the blog next week to view more photos from this project.
