What Luxury Means Today

What Luxury Means Today TalkOur presentation at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s ‘Let’s Talk Design’ Series was on Friday, and we are so pleased to report that it was a hit! We gave our lecture on ‘What Luxury Means Today’ to a sold-out crowd.

Thank you so much to all of the attendees, the Art Gallery, and of course our sponsors, Y.A.M. Magazine and Gabriel Ross, for your support of this event!

Our topic touched on everyday indulgences, where to invest in your home, pampering yourself, sustainability, and embracing your true style – make everything you do your own and live it with pride!

Thank you again for all of your support!


Adding a lot of Luxuries into a Little Space

Times Colonist - Hotel ChicIn anticipation of our presentation at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s ‘Let’s Talk Design’ series, The Times Colonist has written an article on our recently completed interior design project at the Hudson, here in Victoria BC.

Many thanks to the writer, Grania Litwin, who interviewed us so carefully and really noticed all of the little details we incorportated into the project. She was able to keep the article focused on a strong belief of ours and topic for our presentation: it’s how you put things together, not how expensive they are.

We feel it’s a great representation of our project and teaser for our presentation at the art gallery next weekend – Our presentation is ‘What Luxury Means Today’ and will take place on Friday evening, April 20th at 7 PM – we hope to see all of you there!

Art In Bloom – “Design Fit For A King”

Art in Bloom 2011 Victoria BCThis year Meade Design Group have been very fortunate to be invited by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to reinterpret an art piece of their permanent collection in a botanical extravaganza as part of their annual exhibition Art in Bloom.

We were assigned a stunning oil painting in canvas by Theresa Victoria Wylde (circa 1909) entitled “This Is The World, And I Am King…” (127” height X 137.5 width). Our interpreted title for the exhibit is “Design Fit For A King”

We used a combination of anemones, tube roses, double tulips, mosses and greens accented by drumstick alliums and fuchsia trachelium. We wanted to build up a woodland feeling with berries, mosses and greens, but still have interesting forms and textures with more exotic accents. This is reinforced by the golden graphic that has been applied to the acrylic base which encases the trunk.
