Christopher Gaona

Christopher Gaona is an interior designer who believes in relaxed and refined spaces. He not afraid to use bold colours or artwork to add interest to his designs. I particularly love the furniture he has chosen in the following photos....hello scrumptious leather club chairs!

Hulya Kolabas


Hulya Kolabas is a super-talented photographer who's work has been published in Marie Claire Maison, Cosmopolitan and House Beautiful magazines to name a few. Such beautifully styled spaces....and I had to add the "chair race" photo because it got a chuckle out of me. (The Panton S chair is going to win).

Atelier September


I'm drawn to the Gustavian look. Love the Scandinavian take on distressed antiques, monotones, simple ceramics and hemp and linen fabrics. I'm particularly loving the grey on grey. Just a peep inside this beautiful Danish antique store, Atelier September.

Reddymade Design

Reddymade Design is a small architecture firm out of New York. They may be small in size but they are big in design and philosophy...and their philosophy is so eloquent I had to include it:

"Design is first a dialogue that begins with respect and understanding of the site, its nature and constrictions as well as the intrinsic desires and needs of the client. Then comes the creative genesis, the identification of the project's goal or potential, where it can go, how to develop its subtle and complex elements interrelating them into walls, floors, enclosures openings, lighting and more. After an essential idea that employs the use of space and light is conceived, a series of layers are juxtaposed to the raw form giving it materiality, color, texture and detail. Underlining the process is the indispensable element of time, the use of the space over a series of years or decades, its ability to last and be flexible to different needs, as well as its capacity to survive transformation.
The question that should be asked throughout the design process is: "Is this what this really should be?" The goal of design is to create an object that is so intelligent that it is beautiful."
