The thing that I love about Ron Marvin's work is that this look is so achievable. Ron worked for many years for American household names Gap, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Hold Everything, and Williams-Sonoma Home. He is now an interior designer practicing in New York. He has an excellent eye for the vignette and packs a lot of punch in a very small space. Watch the Small Space, Big Style video on his website to see his gorgeous 250 square feet New York apartment. Lots of ideas to steal here.
It's amazing what a different stylist, photographer, lighting, change the accessories or even the colour of the wall can do to a room. This is Ilsa Crawford's London pad. Style guru, designer and founding editor of Elle Decoration, Ilse shares this former printing works with her industrial designer husband. The first three photos are from a shot recently featured in Australian Vogue Living. The others are from an article in Elle Decoration. Change a rug here. Build a bookcase divider there. Formal versus tussled. I love that the images show what a little change can do for the feel of a space.
One of my favourite design styles is retro. My living room is retro-themed but I've been thinking lately that it could still use some work. So I went looking for some photos of retro rooms to get some inspiration and I stumbled across these and thought WOW - how FABULOUS!!! Way I see it, if you're going to do something, you might as well go all the way. Don't you agree?
I love Easter. All those chocolate bunnies, the ones with the long ears. Yum. I stumbled on this site and just had to share. Matthew Mead is a stylist extraordinaire. His beautiful site is full of Easter ideas, crafts, decorating and food. To top it off there are free downloads. Check out his other seasonal offerings in the bonus section. Enjoy!
