We’ve offered inside looks at Beyond Interior Design’s modern, luxury designs, but it’s time to shine the spotlight on the talented team members that bring our works to life.
Dallas transplant and resident brunch queen, Abbey Latham, serves as a junior designer for Beyond. She was destined for a career in architecture and design from a young age. Her pre-kindergarten classmates wouldn’t let her play with the coveted building blocks during recess, but she was determined, boldly snagging the blocks and enjoying her creative playtime inside the classroom closet. As she got older, the games changed, but one thing always remained – creatively building homes and buildings with the resources available. Her mother noticed this gift and suggested she pursue architecture. The rest is history.
Nearly two years ago, Abbey joined the Beyond, bringing her bright light, determination and meticulous eye for design to the team. Partial to modern, bohemian, and industrial vibes, she’s inspired by mixing contrasting elements and to achieve a harmonious balance.
Abbey is currently managing a modern remodel in Plano, Texas, overseeing its inception to, now, its near completion (stay tuned for a BTS look on this project soon!). Through this project, Abbey is implementing some of the latest, effective design technology our industry has to offer – Lumion 3D Rendering Software. Using Virtual Reality (VR), our clients are provided with architectural visualization and can actually virtually step through their designed home to capture the true essence of their to-be space. Peep some of the 2D stills from Abbey’s project for a sense of the life-like quality (pictured above). It’s uncannily accurate and streamlines the design process even further!
When she isn’t diving into work, Abbey spends her weekends caring for her furry friend, Jovie, and enjoying good cuisine with good company. She is in the process of closing on her very own home in East Dallas and we cannot wait to see how she uses her talent to elevate the space!
Can I pick all of them?! Vietnam and Australia.
New, I love new ideas of vintage precedents. It shows growth in design and humanity.
Procrastinating things I’m not excited about doing.
Balmain’s Oliver Rousteing. He always pushes the envelope with new design trends and everything he creates is the new luxury. BIG’s Bjarke Ingels creates forms that are so simple and diagrammatic. He finds a way to make every move intentional and functional, even with obscure figures.
My support system, Fall weather, and Oreos.
True crime documentaries. I just finished HBO’s docu-series I’ll be Gone in the Dark.
I am a night owl, for sure!
The Tasty app, it’s full of unconventional recipes and cool tutorial videos to help you along the way.
I’m most excited about this acid washed metal buffet for my dining room. It’s like an art piece in itself.
Organic, almost rounded, shapes with the nubby fabrics. And incorporating wooden slatted walls for a custom decorative feel.
Sherwin Williams taupe pallets: Requisite Gray, Agreeable Gray, even Accessible Beige. Their Black Magic is a great black paint option too! Currently, I’m considering paint colors for my new front door, maybe Wallflower or Spangle.
For every bad thing that will happen to you in your life, something good will always come out of it. Whether it be a lesson or a resolution. Don’t allow the bad to mask all of the good.
Tuesday’s with Morrie.
Ebb & Flow in Deep Ellum.
The Smoked Tonka candles from West Elm.
New Girl. I have watched and rewatched that show about 7 times and I still laugh.
