The Vibe is in the Details 


As a child, I was fascinated by Interior Design shows like “While You Were Out” and “Trading Spaces,” which left me wondering when a designed space is truly finished. This question has stayed with me throughout my life. I developed a deep passion for interior design and a desire to understand its essence. Growing up in Victoria, TX, I noticed a gap between innovative and modern design, but I also had a strong preference for a timeless traditional style. Later, I pursued my interest in design by attending school in Chicago, where I began to comprehend the numerous ways one can design a space.

“Why should you listen to me?” you ask. Let me introduce you to Creative Colectivo, also known as CC&Co. It’s a design haven that became the passion project of NOMA Design Studio’s principal and owner, Claudia Chanin. Together with Kasandra Tamez, we have developed strong relationships with influential brands to provide you with the best designs from around the world. We have been given the opportunity to showcase our discoveries on these pages, and we can’t wait for you to experience our beautiful world. This series of articles will explore various interior design philosophies and showcase the most fabulous accessories, lighting, materials, furniture, art, and trends to inspire you.

Let’s address my initial question about why we always feel like our homes are never complete. Well, you’re either a designer yourself or you are a caffeinated shopaholic. We have the privilege of having a brick-and-mortar store, so we observe fabulous customers daily. In this era of fast furniture, we’re constantly bombarded with seasonal impulse purchases, but we always yearn for that one-of-a-kind piece that stands out. That’s where we can help. We specialize in finding items that have a special meaning to you and become the centerpiece that ties a room together. Once you start curating your joy, the ambiance will follow. The vibe of a room is in the details. If not, we’re always here to offer a little style session.

For this month’s collection, we have designed an effortlessly chic dining vignette, combining various colors, patterns, and textures to make it unforgettable. We encourage you to be adventurous and steer away from the usual white plates. Instead, try mixing and matching your tableware and incorporating statement pieces to impress your guests. Don’t forget to add lighting for a dramatic effect and some flowers for warmth. These two elements are always a safe bet. Until next time, cheers!
