Design Tips for Sanibel Living Today!

February 28, 2018
By: Linda Serre, Interior Designer at Robb & Stucky

For a coastal style, it's best to avoid heavy dark woods as they can make a space seem gloomy and heavy. If you do incorporate a dark wood item, be sure to use only minimal pieces.
 

Century Furniture's Super Power

February 21, 2018
By Mark Stuart, Creative Director

They say everyone has a super power. Do you know yours? As an experienced Creative Director, one of my most unique talents is the ability to visualize. I can "see" a room come to life while it's on the drawing board, and likewise for furniture. I can change finishes, hardware and other specifications on a piece - all in my mind's eye.

The revival of the dark hues and jewel tones, which were once very popular in the '90s, will be very prevalent in the up & coming year.
 

Staying Positive Under Pressure

October 19, 2017
Life is busy. Work, home, gym, bills, etc., there are a lot of things that can bring stress into our lives. However, if you keep the right mind set it is possible to 'stay positive under pressure'.

That's exactly what Dr. Amanda Evans, a professor at Florida Gulf Coast University with a background in Sociology, spoke about to a group of realtors and industry professionals. It was a part of our free "Positivity is the Key" seminar supporting Laces of Love and hosted at Robb & Stucky's Fort Myers Showroom.
 

Heavenly Bodies

August 11, 2017
Heaven knows, celestial matters have been top of mind for months, as Planet Earth rotates and spins through space to August 21st. For the first time in 99 years, the moon and the sun will cross paths creating a total eclipse of the sun over a coast-to-coast swath of U.S. geography, including Florida. It’s Mother Nature’s ultimate light show.





 

Living Big in Small Spaces

July 11, 2017
With so many of our clients living in high-rise condos with limited space, we thought it was necessary to share our tips on living big in small spaces. “It can’t be done!” you might be saying, but it can. With the help of our designer Jay Filler, you’ll be living in a spacious 900 square foot home in no time!







 

Made in America

June 29, 2017
Were you born to shop? I was! How fortunate am I to have found a career as a professional shopper. As Robb & Stucky’s creative director, shopping is a big (and I say the best) part of what we do. Our team literally shops the world to bring the most innovative designs and finest brands to Southwest Florida.




 

Trend Spotting: The Layered Look

June 8, 2017
Contrary to popular belief, trends don’t come and go. They evolve. We see it every daya t Robb & Stucky. Understanding how trends ebb and flow can help you pass on passing-fancy trends (think fidget spinners) and give a thumbs up to trends with staying power (think Audrey Hepburn and that iconic strand of pearls).



 

Age of Opulence

May 11, 2017
There’s a new design trend in the wind. It’s modern, but not minimalist. It’s rich, but won’t break the bank. It’s super glam, but never gauche. Here at Robb & Stucky, we call it the Age of Opulence.




 

The Go-Go Greens

March 17, 2017
Green is having a moment – and it’s more than fleeting 15 seconds of fame. The color’s patron saint is a 14th century missionary by the name of St. Patrick. And more recently, another authority – Pantone – ordained Greenery as the color of 2017.
