I found the following ranch home on the website of New York Spaces magazine and OH LA LA I think I've died and gone to heaven. It's full of mid-century furnishings, it's colourful, it's quirky and I freaking LOVE IT. My favourite part is the front door - I have a similar door (but the inset carved squares run in a row down the center) and I'm itching to get some bold colours to paint it.
With a comprehensive understanding of what's happening in the design world and stylish interpretations of their client's needs Patricia Healing and Dan Barsanti of Healing Barsanti create fresh, vibrant interiors that reference the past but are very much now. I'm in love with their use of green. So clean and fresh and unexpected. Perfect for a summer room.
With a pared back palette of neutrals S. Russell Groves and his team create rooms that are evoke luxury and elegance. This is an extensive portfolio crammed with images that are beautiful in their simplicity and well considered detail. Too many gorgeous spaces to share here. You are in for a wonderful time on the website.
Liisa from NY wrote the other day looking for ideas: "My next project is to fix a bedroom for my 11 year old twin girls. They start middle school next fall and I want to decorate our downstairs big (13 x 18 feet) bedroom for them. They have been sharing a room all their life and like to do so but now that they are getting into their teen years I would like to create some private space for each of them as well. The girls also like to do all kinds of projects so some sort of workstation is in plans. Any cool ideas?"
I love this request because I have an identical twin sister and while we had our own rooms growing up, we always insisted on having sleepovers every night in each other's room. But then we each had our own room to decorate! (And I moved my furniture around every weekend, almost as frequently as I do now!) Hopefully the following photos will help give you some ideas of how to arrange the room and what style might work for the girls. I think if you put the beds at one end of the room, with curtains on hospital tracks between them so they can have privacy when they want, and then do one long desk on the other end with storage cubbies above to stash art/school supplies, that ought to keep them happy. :)
