Grateful Head Salon

Oh my word! Talk about rock and roll glam! Just in from Canadian photographer Brenda Liu, the Grateful Head Salon.

I photographed this for my friend Lysa Fina who owns the salon (located in Toronto). I think there are number of elements that would translate well into a home. The space has a rock 'n roll vibe with lots of funky details, for example the raised velvet skull wallpaper and the all red show stopping bathroom. It's far from the typical all white salons we are so used to.

I've included "before" photos so you can see the transformation of the space. The salon was designed with the help of Lysa's friend and professional set designer, Nancy Niksic. I hope you enjoy!

What a transformation. Love the bathroom, the distressed walls, the skulls and Brenda captures the space perfectly. With a salon this cool the hair must be hot!

Luminous beauty

European style meets Hollywood Regency. The transformation of this Madrid space from what was once shabby offices (and before that the headquarters of a religious order) to a sophisticated and glamorous family homes is nothing short of stunning. From the restoration of fine architectural details to the pure exuberance of the decoration it is the work of interior designer Soledad Suárez de Lezo. Can you believe she was once a lawyer before following her heart and training as a designer? Soledad emailed us to share her success at being published in one of Spain's hottest interior design magazines Nuevo Estilo. These are some of the images from the 16 page spread they did called Luminous Beauty. Congratulations Soledad - both on the feature and the amazing transformation. Luminous beauty indeed!

Jordan Carlyle - more goodies

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 - a first glimpse

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.
