“We create a commissioned piece of art for our clients. Art in which they live or work.” That's how Wendy Blount describes her designs. Style arbiter and rising star on the Atlanta design scene she brings a fresh perspective to classic and contemporary interiors. Her European background shows in her elegant and relaxed portfolio.
I have 2 bathrooms (well, 1.5) in my house that could really not be any uglier. I hate spending any time in them, hate cleaning them, just plain hate them something fierce. When I found numerous gorgeous and luxurious bathrooms in the portfolio of Toronto-based firm McGill Design Group, I honestly wanted to cry. If I could renovate my bathrooms to look even an iota as incredible as the ones they have designed...*sigh* Oh ya, their other spaces are fabulous too. :)
.... this furniture! The distressed leather in that rich hue. The shape of the sofa and the nail head detail. The playful fat tufting of the ottoman and that cocktail table. OMG don't get me started. Where pray tell do these glam meets rock meets Hollywood meets hedonist's playpen pieces come from? Check out Bradley Hughes. They are Atlanta based and hot, hot hot. Here's another image Michelle Bradley emailed. Check out the full range here. Seriously lust worthy.
Come on admit it. You're like me. You like to stalk other people's homes whether on real estate websites or house tours on blogs. Part envy, part curiosity, part "education" but always 100% voyeurism, taking a sneak peek into someone's home is a guilty pleasure. Tate from Strange Closets has fabulous house tours. Every Thursday he takes us on a snoop through some of Chicago's most creative and livable homes. Real people with real style .... OK real people with buckets of style and panache. Check them out here. Oh did I mention the interviews with Chicago's design movers and shakers as well?
