Please continue the journey with us as the discoveries continue.   —Anita

Esplanade Place Selects IMI Design!

Luxury begets luxury. IMI has recently began work remodeling the public areas of Esplanade Place a “unique, luxury 14-floor condominium” overlooking portions of downtown Phoenix, Piestewa Peak and the Biltmore Fashion Park. The project is working to bring new energy and elevating the luxury of the common areas of the condos by updating the color palette, modernizing the furnishings and adding unique and elegant artwork among other things.Just in time for summer IMI designed new pool deck finishes as well as updated the pool deck furnishings. They are also in the process of redoing the club room and lobby areas with Christian Liaigre club chairs that are to die for, an over-scaled macassar cocktail table custom designed by Anita Lang and an incredible custom starburst hand knotted rug. Even commercial spaces with large traffic patterns and the need for a wide appeal can be transformed into a luxurious, uplifting environment.

Designer’s Eye for Quality

Luxury starts with quality. How do you maintain quality as you build or renovate a home? One important solution is a great team. In addition to the team members, a few fundamental tools can be used to make the whole process run that much more smoothly. Read how Dale Gardon Design, Salcito Custom Homes and IMI Design recently implemented these steps in a joint Mediterranean style project that is truly remarkable. (click here to read more)

Second Phase Starts for Inspire Design

It’s that time of year again. Some are needing that last minute donation to help with 2013 taxes and others are beginning to plan their 2014 budgets and donations. The needed tax accounting documentation is readily available. We are asking that you keep this 501(c)(3) in mind for either. We are now starting Phase 2 of this year’s Inspire Foundation project benefiting the Foundation for Blind Children .Phase 2 will convert the existing conference room and storage areas to a much needed 5th classroom and parents’ lounge. It will also completely redo the multipurpose room to be a truly stunning location for community members, parents and friends to gather for any one of the multitude of events sponsored by the Foundation. Inspire Design also has plans to renovate the kitchen and restrooms throughout the building if funding permits.

This is the perfect timing to review the sponsorship opportunities in our updated “Donor Menu” and help with any portion of this project. Your generosity will be felt for these special children and the wonderful staff who teach them for years to come. Please visit our updated website and learn about the Phase 2 and our most pressing needs online at https://www.imidesignstudio.com/inspire-foundation/

You can also always call our office or email Luke with any questions. To all of our current sponsors and partners in this project – we are so grateful for your ongoing support! Please help us share the information on Phase 2 with all of your contacts!

I Spy…by: Anita
Washington, DC!The Inc Conference 500/5000 was an impactful experience for me and, from the expressions I heard, the other 2000 attendees. Held in Washington DC during the dysfuncti onal government shut down. The conference constantly celebrated America’s top fastest growing entrepreneurs who have created over a half million jobs. Their stories of hard work, ethics, determination, self-discipline and focus were inspirational. How proud I am to live in a country with so much opportunity! Join me as I take a look at a few of the most educational and influential–to me personally–of the sessions. Read: Inspiration in Two Extremes

Smart Fall Fest by

Smart Concierge

TM

We love our clients! Aside from looking to provide them the best possible design outcome, we wanted a way to go even farther in caring for them. IMI has recently launched its trademark Smart Concierge service. Through this program we provide a network of luxury partners from a plethora of industries allowing the opportunity to do something special completely outside of our typical clients’ projects: from exclusive openings to trade specific events to event hosting.

As a way to celebrate the clients, the project and the ASID “Best in Show 2013” award, through our Smart ConciergeTM, a Fall Fest was arranged at the client’s residence for their neighbors and friends.

It was such a wonderful event! The Herb Box catered it with floral arrangements from Cactus Flowers and a guest list that was full of friendly, fun neighbors and friends. We were so happy to be able to do this for such an amazing couple as these clients! Thank you for letting us be a part of your life.

Take a look at some of the nights images.
