30 Sep 2016

CetraRuddy, Manhattan based architecture and interior design firm, has cooked up a hot new high-rise in NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen. Let me introduce you to 535w43, a site comprised of two 14-story buildings that provide luxury apartment living in the heart of the concrete jungle. This haven features a rooftop garden, skyline views and central courtyard gardens with glass-enclosed walkways that bridge the two buildings.

The Trigonometry behind a Beach House in Trigg

01 Sep 2016

Don’t (web) surf away- this is not a geometry lesson. Instead, it IS a lesson on how a beach house can benefit from an array of triangles…and how Yellow Goat Design will nail the right angle for your project (pun intended)!  Situated in the ocean town of Trigg outside of Perth in Western Australia, a family commissioned Hillam Architects to design what the architect calls “A stairway to beachside heaven”. The private residence, located on a prominent corner, is inviting for both friends and fanciers.

From 0-60: Auto is Amping Up Their Interiors and Lincoln is the Innovator

01 Sep 2016

Lincoln Motor Company just opened its first 5,200-square-foot experience center and let me tell you…it’s a force to be reckoned with. Located at uber-luxurious Fashion Island in Newport Beach, California, the Lincoln Experience Center shares retail space with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Neiman Marcus and SoulCycle (for any of you that know me personally…this is my idea of a good time). Lincoln took note and seized the opportunity to supply their customer base with an introduction to “The Lincoln Way”, designing a space with sleek architectural accents and a stylish interior.

Project Spotlight: Florida Women’s Hospital

02 Jun 2016

Let’s face it: hospital lighting doesn’t have the best reputation.  Describing an interior as “sterile” isn’t exactly a compliment to any space (even for hospitals!).  Those typical bright white fluorescent lights aren’t exactly what we would call “welcoming.”   Problem is… if medical attention is required, there is no avoiding it.   Why do hotels and retail spaces get to have all of the fun?!  Not any more (mic drop from the healthcare industry!).  Healthcare is bouncing back and Yellow Goat Design is at the forefront of elevating the interior experience for patients and providers alike.

In Defense of Bold Design

26 May 2016

If you don’t try new things, you certainly aren’t going to benefit from them.  Sticking to the tried and true can make you feel tired and blue at the end of the day!  In terms of design, your project will feel flat and generic if you cling to the cookie cutter concept.  Good design, in addition to looking great (obviously), creates a conversation, lends a feeling of distinction and destination and sometimes even causes a good laugh.  We think you should go big or go home in your next interior design project.
