Loot & Palate offers an effortless, hands-on way to explore design and curate your living space to your taste.

In the world of interior design—and in the age of the Internet—the choices of décor can be overwhelming, particularly without professional advice on hand. Luckily, Loot & Palate has recently opened its doors in Woodbrook, Trinidad, to bring a public face to the interior design firm, Design & Supply Studio. The company now offers the full complement of design options—from retail shopping to professional interior design services for medium and large residential and commercial projects.

Loot & Palate / Design & Supply Studio was the birthchild of Director Kimberly Costelloe, who brought her background in marketing and experience in interior design to the business. The company’s first project was the transformation of a shell unit in Trinidad’s renowned One Woodbrook Place into a chic corporate rental.

With masculine tones and a grey palette, the look catered for a male expatriate tenant. The apartment’s high ceilings were highlighted using long, dramatic drapes and a floor-to-ceiling feature wall made from black, quartz-like stone. Cool, porcelain tiling and pops of teal colour accents brought a taste of the tropics to the contemporary apartment.

Unsurprisingly, the rental was snapped up by a multinational corporation within a week. Having cultivated a network of suppliers over years of steering interior design projects and attending design shows throughout the United States, Costelloe recognised that so little of the latest, show-stopping styles on the international circuit were trickling back to the Caribbean market. After hosting successful pop-up boutiques, she saw the need for a larger retail space and an expansion of the services offered by the business.

The classic Woodbrook property is now the company’s home, where the team has carefully curated a collection of affordable yet high-quality, statement pieces. The space is designed for customers to enjoy a uniquely tailored shopping experience, whether they are homeowners looking for individual pieces, customers searching for that perfect gift, or developers and interior designers outfitting large-scale projects.

“If customers like something in the store that’s not exactly right, we can guide them through the catalogues to find an alternative that’s the perfect colour, size, and look, so they get precisely what they want without compromise,” Costelloe explains. Need even more inspiration?

The shop boasts a café on its gallery, a design oasis with magazines, pencils, and paper for customers to browse, sketch, and really let their imagination come to life.

Offering an end-to-end service, Loot & Palate allows customers to relax while professionals handle the complex processes of shipping and customs clearance. They’ll even deliver goods to your door, with white-glove unpacking services also available. Looking for a professional to take the helm of your next big project?

Design & Supply Studio will design and project manage the entire process from start to finish, ensuring clients achieve the aesthetic and functionality that they need within their budget.When it comes to curated living, be ruthless in the pursuit of what you love, and settle only for what resonates within your soul.
