Farewell, 2016!

We’ve had a whirlwind of a year — 2016 will be one for the books. From traveling across the world to working with incredible clients to kicking off projects with major publications and brands, 2016 might just be Pulp Design Studios’ best year yet. We even had a record year for interior design client referrals, just one of the things we loved the most about 2016! We rounded up our favorite moments, month by month, in celebration of 2017…

January

We headed to KBIS with BlogTour, where we announced our (then secret) national ad campaign partnership with DXV.

We’re looking forward to…

With 2017 right around the corner, we are so excited to let you know for the first time that we’ll be launching a new home goods collection this upcoming fall! Combining our passion for art with our enthusiasm for fresh design trends, the collection will feature Pulp-centric punches of graphics and style.

Working with new interior design clients to define their style and infuse their personalities into our design is one of the most dynamic and enjoyable parts of our work — we love getting to know our clients and helping them to fall in love with their space. We are so thrilled to jump into new projects and make connections with new people in 2017.

We’re also looking forward to seeing some of our completed projects published in national magazines and other publications — keep a look out for Pulp-designed homes on newsstands near you this year!

Signing off until 2017,
Beth + Carolina
