Tori Golub's design firm is based in Manhatten and is known for its clean modern aesthetic. Modern but totally liveable and comfortable. "Her work is characterized by her trademark muted tones, resulting in serenely beautiful environments. Playful combinations of scale and a juxtaposition of styles make Tori Golub interiors unmistakable." I love every piece of furniture in these photos.
Dreaming of a house in France? Perhaps a coach house rich with history? Throw in an overstuffed, cosy, slightly shabby interior that just screams kids and dogs and long lunches and local wine and perhaps this house in Normandy may just be the stuff of your fantasies. Nothing is precious but everything is loved. I can just imagine summer escapes to such a house. Dream on.
OK it's time for our last installment from that guide to good taste in the 70s How to Decorate Without a Decorator, A Realistic Guide to Interior Design by Mary Gilliatt, Thames and Hudson, London, 1977. Mary seems to not have survived the test of time with a few of these. Hey! That's what these posts are all about - inspiration and the occasional "OMG what were they thinking of?!!" Enjoy!
