Ann Lowengart is quite a versatile designer. As you will see in the majority of this post it's all about sophisticated and chic neutral spaces that are timeless and very inviting. She has also had her way with bright, bold, daring colour combinations which you will see a bit here and in my next post. Whichever style you prefer, they are all jaw-dropping gorgeous. (Find more of her work here)
There's something so fresh about a blue and white interior and I love this modern take on a classic look in this Newport Beach renovation by Jeff Trotter Design. From bobbin chairs to Burmese rain drum side tables, from beadboard to blue and white ikat cushions it's the perfect coastal look for those who like their beachside classic not cliché.
Benjamin Vandiver says his aesthetic cannot be categorized as one specific expression, that it's just all about exceptional taste. Ordinarily I would find that proclamation a tad obnoxious but after perusing his portfolio, it's 100% accurate. There's nothing obnoxious about these spaces; they are all refined, carefully curated and casually exquisite.

And from me: 2 of the favourite lounging spots in the house. Felix on the DIY console table under the living room window and Lucky on my Victorian embroidered chair. (Felix is doing well on meds to battle his recently diagnosed lymphoma, but now he's verging on becoming diabetic so on top of taking meds we have wean him off one of the meds and give him high-protein food to help lower his glucose levels. Ah buddy. *sigh*)
