Manne (mah-nah) Weser

Curator

Expert In: Industrial Rustic, Mid Century Modern, Scandinavian, Asian Fusion
Design Philosophy: My Mantra is "My Home Is My Vacation" and whenever I work with new clients I ask them: How can we make your kitchen look like your favorite restaurant, your bathrooms like your favorite Spa, or your living room like your favorite hotel destination? In my experience, you can make the biggest impact in your spaces by working with your surfaces and lighting. These set the tone for the space that every other fixture or material will work within. The floor is the first thing you will touch in your room so I like to take a bottom-up approach and work from flooring to ceiling. As for overall design, simpler is often better.
Key Interests: Martial Arts, Singing, Music Production, Exotic Dogs.

Design Philosophy: I am passionate about colors and textures and the way they influence the "feel " of any space. In my experience, the goal of renovating the space is to create the feeling of "more space " and tones and finishes are the best way to do that. I feel the biggest misconception about renovation is too much emphasis on the furnishings themselves. I've achieved the best results starting first with the walls. (texture&paint, wall decals or wallpaper, Wall Panels or Wall Tiles) and work inward. Getting the right balance in the room with those elements first will speak to what furnishings are needed and how they should be placed.
