David Fruscione is featured in Home & Design Magazine, speaking on the opportunity to design for the Ronald McDonald House of SWFL and his origami inspiration.
I was inspired by the Japanese legend of 1,000 origami cranes. The centuries-old concept represents wishes granted from the gods for happiness, good luck, and recovery of illness. A custom-designed crane mural covers the walls of the bedrooms’ hallway.
I selected lighting and accessories inspired by folded paper and handmade paper cranes, as well as created framed origami art – folded by yours truly – to add the finishing touch’ My hope is that by bringing design elements inspired by origami into the space, I will create positive energy and bless the families who visit with good wishes. I am so honored to be selected to participate in this project and hope that this space helps to provide visitors with a sense of optimism and strength.
I go crazy for a spectacular powder room, it is the perfect place to have fun and be adventurous. I wanted to create the feeling of an exotic getaway, a place that allowed you to not think about your daily struggles. I developed a custom-designed graphic wallpaper in bold colors, which I complemented with an over-scaled hex tile floor. Gold accents add a bit of shine, and the delicately beaded light fixture adds texture and sophistication. Sometimes having a moment alone is what we need most, and I hope that this space allows guests to escape!
