Simple clean lines, minimalism with a human touch. It's difficult to live this lean and stylish but sometimes I crave it. Architect West Chin and his team including wife Roseann Repetti are like sculptors. Their rooms are dramatic yet functional, light filled and spacious. A place for everything and everything is its place. Yes disciplined but definitely dramatic.
Jonamor Décor was founded a couple years ago by Jonona Lambert, Principal Designer and Senor Amor, Project Manager. Before beginning the firm, these retro-crazed folks opened a vintage furniture shop called Retropia. I applaud their bold design schemes and their love of vintage. I think with their décor you either love it or hate it. I think the spaces are too quirky and fun not to love. :) (And no, the following photos were not scanned out of one of Jo's vintage design books.)
I love photographer Lisa Cohen's work. (Was it really back in 2007 when I first posted about her?) Navigating my way through her rep's site I found more of her portfolio and I'm sooooo glad I did. You see I have had several of Lisa's photos saved as tear sheets and now I've found them online. Love the postcards around the door and the the last two photos .... is that my next house? Beautiful beautiful shots.
I stumbled upon the website of New York based interior designer Amanda Nisbet the other day and was awed by the supply of gorgeous photos of her work. "Untethered by design rules, Amanda brings a fresh energetic approach to a traditional sense of luxury. Color, texture and form blend to create her trademark comfortable elegance. Her work seamlessly balances function and style, Classicism and Modernism, in surprising ways." Since it's been over a year since Jo posted some photos from her portfolio, I was eager to do a follow-up post.
Just when you thought everything Swedish was white along comes this house with more than enough colour to brighten any grey day. OMG! Where to begin! The tiles, the bathrooms, the colour saturated bedrooms, that reading/snoozing/TV watching landing, that LAUNDRY!!!!! Big virtual kisses to Annika for this piece of real estate stalking. A design crazy Scandinavian girl living in Australia, Annika says that this home was done up by a group of interior designers for a show called "Finally Home" on Channel 4. Explains the wide colour palette. I'm still in shock from that laundry.
