I'm a "Bah! Humbug!" sort of girl myself and Christmas isn't that big in my house (except for the family gatherings and the copious amounts of food and drink) but when I was checking out Aaron R Thomas's website to see what fab new things he has designed my heart skipped a beat. Lucite lovers of the world unite, an acrylic christmas tree. Swoon! This one has been styled for the Bamboo Colony in L.A. Check it out here and here. (Earlier post here.) Limited edition so if you can't resist go now.
Since starting this blog, one of my favourite design teams I've come across is Target Living. I posted about them here and here, but there are still so many photos of their phenomenal designs on their website that I had to do another post on this UK design duo of Tara Bernerd and Thomas Griem. Their style is modern, bold and rockin', and I dig it. Alot.
Another amazing property for sale in my home town. We spend so much of our time living outdoors here and this artist's house pushes the envelope between inside and out. The sleeping pavilion would be the most mystical place to sleep in our hot summer nights and when the weather is inclement then there's always the inside. A modern take on classic asian design.
Modern timeless classic. So says the website of New York architect and interior designer Stephen Miller Siegal. Muted colours and unusual textures are trade marks but there is a lot to learn from the details here. A platter of beautifully aligned green apples mirrors a ficus in an otherwise neutral room. Texture enriches dark brooding rooms. Art work is massed in carefully curated groups. These rooms invoke salons and libraries and formal dining rooms. Modern timeless and classic.
