Here are more goodies care of Jordan Carlyle that are sure to please if post #1 got you all hot and bothered. This first set of photos are I believe from Jordan's old apartment. LOVE the artwork, despite it being a serious boob-fest, and the sophisticated vibe. Following that is an apartment on West 21st St. that is a little less glam but has Jordan's signature HOT style.
Jordan Carlyle of NYC interior design firm Carlyle Designs emailed us about his work and thought we'd like to share some of his projects with our readers. You'll see why I didn't hesitate to say yes in a moment. First, a little bit about Jordan: Characterized by earthly surfaces, singular details and keen colors richly layered across an architectural framework, Jordan's designs recast classic elements in modern settings. It's an approach that pays homage to timeless notions of sophistication as surely as it spritzes them with modern zest and sheds the stuffy overtones of elegance to reveal its sexy young skin. Jordan's understanding of the exceptional and his love for the refined continue to be the core of his design philosophy. I was shocked to discover Jordan is only 29, and not only am I already smitten with his work, it turns out he has collection of beautiful custom furnishings (Carlyle Collective) and produces contemporary artwork (for CB2 for over 4 years!) found here. I am thoroughly impressed. So impressed I need to do two posts. To begin, here are two projects - the first is an industrial loft gone elegant, and the second, a dreamy bathroom.
Today's reader request comes from Ina in Norway: I'd like to request a post about sexy, glamorous rooms. a'la your post called "Room porn" from the 13th of July. I feel that lately there has just been a lot of posts about entirely white rooms, and it's getting old. Lets bring some colors to the screen (preferably dark, calm ones). As much as I love white spaces, I agree with Ina - dark spaces are SO moody and can be SO hot. I'd be happy to give you all a bit of sexy and glamourous today (yes, this is a bit of a subjective post but I tried). Happy Friday!
