James Dolenc and Thomas Riker founded their Chicago-based interior design firm jamesthomas in 2003. They believe a project's success is achieved through a unique color palette, an innovative use of materials and an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings. The result is modern sophistication.
There is an elegant monochromatic and simple yet lush feel to these rooms by Owen Design Associates but just when you think that this soothing neutral palette is their thing ODA surprise with rich colour. Love Alexandra Owen's clean lines as much as her take on comfortable and tufted. Would kill for those silk drapes and bamboo blinds in the last room featured.
Jim Cooper has a rockin' website to match his rockin' portfolio. His interior shots are inspiring if not pared back and elegant in their honesty but you must must check out his still life portfolio and salivate over his food pics. Haven't been this excited for some time. Remember to view the still life shots!
I love the portfolio of architect Barbara Weiss' London-based firm. Modern spaces without being too modern...all white spaces without being too stark. Perfect in their simplicity and timelessness, with some really great lighting thrown in for a bit of that wow factor.
