Prop stylist and set designer Lili Abir Regen has a jaw-dropping portfolio that is just one incredible space after another, and we've posted several photos of her work before. For kicks, check out her editorial portfolio - talk about creative!
Alexandra and Eliot Angle are the creative force behind L.A. based Aqua Vitae Design. Not slavishly tied to any particular style they have a fresh take on the West Coast look. But interior design is not all these talented couple do. They are furniture designers, event designers, authors and television hosts. I'm totally in love with that chaise in the bathroom and would love to host many a dinner party at that table in that room with that view!
Kim wrote us hoping we could help her with a design dilemma: "I am a uni student living on campus. My uni room is quite large and easily fits a king sized bed, a bar fridge, a bedside table and two tables. I am looking for an ethnic and minimal look (if that even exists). The walls are the real ugly dorm room walls. I have tried covering two of them up with pictures but am left with one really large blank wall. Any more pictures will definitively defeat the minimal look I'm going for. Any suggestions?? The room currently has a burgundy Thai bedspread with silk cushions, Turkish carpet and a Moroccan inspired lantern. Any help is appreciated!!"
Kim - your room sounds gorgeous so far! I have a couple of suggestions for you - an ornate wood mirror, carved wooden panels, a fab piece of fabric simply tacked up, or a big (but flat) tropical plant. Below are some photos of ethnic bedrooms and a couple living rooms for inspiration. We'd love to see photos of the room once completed!

Are you addicted to 1stdibs like I am? I wait eagerly each week for my "fix". My favourite dealer? Buck House. Deborah Buck is an artist and designer. Her Madison Ave, New York gallery is artfully crammed with treasures that make my heart sing. Her ability to source beautiful objects is uncanny and the vignettes she creates in her shop are akin to creating paintings. Am I gushing? Can't help it because I'd live in her gallery if I could. Her "sense" of blue is amazing. Enough ... enjoy the pictures.
