Blackwood Associates is a residential interior design firm based in Rumson, NJ on the Jersey Shore about 45 minutes south of NYC. Founder, Lisa Goodwyn, came back to Rumson to raise her family after living in Manhattan and working for the renowned New York design firm Cullman & Kravis. Lisa now designs and decorates beautiful stately homes in and around the Rumson area, known for its sprawling turn-of-the-century estates located along the shores of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers, and just minutes from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Lisa's design aesthetic is clean, modern, refreshing, vibrant, and filled with water, sand and sun palettes. Her projects result in a relaxed, charming atmosphere with architectural delights, amazing attention to detail and a delightful, easy flow for relaxed living and entertaining, without ever feeling stuffy.
We like the logo samples we provided but we'd like something a bit more proprietary and creative. Clever use of color way and pattern are important to us, as these design elements are key to our interiors. Play up on the B (its own stand along icon) would be interesting. Blackwood is one word (don't enlarge the W). The Jonathan Adler gift box was included to show pattern and color way that we like a lot, but overall it's a bit too retro.
