Hampton's Cottages and Gardens magazine said this of New York interior designer Marcy Masterson: "Though her interiors may be based on Russian Neoclassical, slick Modern, or Nantucket American, all are carefully researched, intellectually focused and user-friendly." She has such a classic contemporary style that is somewhat glamourous and has such a presence. Love her use of bold colour and patterns.
I'm out. I'm loud. I'm proud. I real estate stalk! Truth be told one of my favourite forms of exercise is to walk (stalk) the neighbourhood checking out homes. If the curtains aren't drawn and the door open even better :) Today's stalk is a church conversion in Sydney. This is one apartment but although beautiful it leaves me a little puzzled as to why they thought they had to maximise floor space while losing the majesty of full height windows. (Developer vs. designer?) The light well cut outs seem a little "twee". Still if someone bought it for me I wouldn't complain.
I am going to try and post this again and hopefully not break the blog any more than it already is. The photos below are well worth a second attempt.
Suzy Hoodless is a British interior designer (and former interiors editor at Wallpaper magazine) who has created modern, bold, eclectic spaces for clients worldwide - a hunting lodge in Scotland, a beach house in Barbados, the London townhouse of a supermodel....and all of it is superbly and tastefully executed with flare.
Problems here at Desire to Inspire. We can't view the blog and neither, it seems, can most readers. We know some of you are getting through (via our stats) but we're assuming you get us via a feed. Not that it will help too much with sorting out the problems but if you can read this could you please email us and let us know what you see and how you got to us (please CC both of us). We are working on the problem but getting through to a real person on Blogger is an "interesting" exercise. We'll keep you updated!
The New York design firm 2Michaels was created by sisters Jayne and Joan Michaels. Their style ranges from mid-century, to contemporary to more mid-century. It's no wonder as their design sense developed in Italy, where they were exposed to the likes of Franco Albini, Gio Ponti and Carlo Mollino. (Nothing to do with MCM, but check out that closet/bookcase in the bedroom photo!)
