Caroline Colston


Another great stylist with an inspiring portfolio. Caroline Colston has a great way with grouping objects. Each collection is beautifully arranged. There is no sense of clutter but these are definitely not minimalist. Love her simple use of plants and flowers. Love the bathroom especially the bulbs peeping out from under the hand basin.

Green and sustainable in Silver Lake


Interior designer Lori Dennis sent us these pictures of one of her newest projects in Silver Lake. The young couple, he a lawyer by day and DJ by night and she an event planner hired Lori and her design team to rock their pad. "We built it from the ground up with green techniques. Materials include recycled glass tiles, 3 Form Panels, Modular Art Eco Friendly wall panels, bamboo floors, organic linens, dual flush toilets (weak flush button for yellow, stronger flush for no. 2), eco friendly paint by Benjamin Moore, Earth Plaster walls, AFM Safecoat stain on FSC certified wood custom furniture and recycled content cement counters. It's a super stylin' party pad. Hope you love it!" Do we!! I was going to say the way of future interior design is green and sustainable but it's not the way of the future - it's needed NOW! Great work Lori!

SkB Architects


Shannon Rankin, Kyle Gaffney and Brian Collins-Friedrichs began their architectural firm SkB Architects in 1999 in Seattle and in a short amount of time have grown into a highly successful company. Their style is mostly modern but each space feels very warm and inviting. I LOVE the wall in the photo above with the built-in display niche and bookshelf - amazing use of space.

Matthew Hranek

Matthew Hranek is a superb photographer who has shot some amazing spaces that I just adore. I am totally drawn to spaces filled with books and art, and so many of these photos are just that. Very inspiring.

Deborah McLean


I love the work of stylist Deborah McLean. Fresh, fun, light and young. Love the vintage papers on the wall. It's a well curated look that appears thrown together and celebrates the found, the vintage and the unexpected.
