A giant on the American interior design scene Noel Jeffrey has woven his magic for more than three decades. Though he may seem a traditionalist he embraces all styles. Unashamedly high end and beyond the reach of most what can his work teach us? The the key is in the detail, that layering is luxury in itself and that the fun is in the extras. A bobble trim on a dining chair cover, diaphanous drapes on a bed, shades on your scones in your all too girly dressing room. You may not click with his style but you have to give more than a nod to his skill.
Kanner Architects is an award-winning and internationally known family-run firm that began over 60 years ago. "Our goal is to explore, develop and produce designs of warm and timeless Modernist architecture. We draw inspiration from the climate, innovation and diversity of Southern California and our design process takes into account the seasons and the changes of light during the passage of the day." The views and massive expanse of windows are so breathtaking in the following photos.
I have been thinking about whether or not to post this for several days now. I don't usually like to post about me, except maybe my great thrift finds or house renovations, but I have been feeling guilty for the past week and thought I should post a little note to apologize for my lack of comments on everyone's blogs (and on this blog for that matter). My life has been quite chaotic lately - to be brief, my boyfriend of 6 years and I have decided to take a break, so for the first time in five and a half years, I will be living on my own. In the past week I also found a new house and have been trying to buy it and have been going through hell to do so. I still don't have the house and am not hopeful that I will get it. So in the next little while, whether I end up selling my current home or not, I'm going to be pretty busy with non-blog-related stuff. I have only had enough time to publish my posts that I prepare on weekends and Jo and I have some blogging commitments coming up that I have to get ready for. So I am pretty stressed for time these days, and my apologies for not being able to visit all my favourite blogs on a daily basis. I've included some photos above of some of my favourite rooms in this house...if I end up selling I will miss this place, but I think a change would be really good right about now.
