This delicious #CKJournal   #Palette  post is the perfect way to wrap up this week that flew by at warp speed. Happy weekend guys! 
http://www.clothandkind.com/blog/palette-37/
This week literally flew passed us! What about you? We're most definitely behind on our usual blog posts because we've been so laser focused on some cool new client projects and on getting our revamped website ready to launch... but we can hardly believe it's Friday (night, at that!) and we're just now getting our first post of the week up. Ah well, such is life. We try to take it all in stride and enjoy the ride, even though the route may not al...

We kinda worship the ground that Kate walks on. Her talent and creative vision are in a class all on their own. Such an honor to have worked with her for our #CKGoldfinger #LCDQLA #Legends2014 window this year. Someone should snatch that gorgeous pillow of hers up. No words for how cool it is in person! Thank you for the beautiful post, +Holly Hollingsworth Phillips! xx from +Tami Ramsay and me

On the blog... #BlogTourMilan  The #Gessi  Concept Lab. This place was beyond incredible! http://www.clothandkind.com/blog/blogtour-milan-gessi-concept-lab/ +Modenus 
This should have been our first clue that we were in for the ride of our lives at the Gessi Concept Lab in the heart of the Brera fashion district in Milan, Italy. As we first entered the building, we snapped pics on these adorable little vintage Vespas (the kind that everyone is dashing through the crowded streets of Milan on!) in front of the Gessi step and repeat before descending the dramatic set of stairs into one of the most unforgettable e...

We're the first to admit, we've always steered toward natural materials like marble, granite and if we're lucky and have a particularly adventurous client, more exotic stones like onyx, in projects whenever possible. Our curiosity was more than piqued, however, by a new ultra-compact surface that is revolutionizing the category with advanced technical properties for both interior and exterior design called Dekton. While in Milan for Salone del Mo...

CLOTH & KIND // Curated interior design with history and heart, with story and substance // Krista Nye Schwartz & Tami Ramsay.
Introduction

CLOTH & KIND is a residential & commercial interior design firm led by co-owners Krista Nye Schwartz & Tami Ramsay with office locations in Ann Arbor, MI and Athens, GA. The pair are renowned for their ability to create spaces with history and heart, with story and substance. Whether locally, nationally or virtually, each project is layered with a meticulous mix of one of a kind curated finds and finished with a heavy dose of unique and custom textiles, art and furnishings. Krista & Tami’s design aesthetic is always classic and patinaed with a modern vibe and a worldly influence. 

The pair also pens the CLOTH & KIND Journal, a widely read and praised blog that has emerged as a songbird showcasing the world’s leading and emerging talents and personalities within the interior design, textile and art communities. Their ongoing column PROUST ON DESIGN, offers a unique design-related spin on the traditional questionnaire by French novelist, essayist & critic Marcel Proust, and has featured some of the biggest names in the interior design industry.

Krista & Tami's design work and writing have been featured in House BeautifulElle Decor, LonnyThe Huffington PostThe AtlantanAtlanta Homes & LifestylesDetroit Home, as well as many respected blogs including RemodelistaApartment Therapy & StyleBeat, to name a few. In 2014, CLOTH & KIND was invited to design a window for the prestigious La Cienega Design District Legends event, which received tremendous accolades from press and peers in the design community alike. The duo is currently designing two rooms for the 2014 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays showhouse, which will be open to the public in November 19-December 7, 2014. They also proudly serve as contributing editors to Dering Hall.
