The Talbott Hotel

I spotted this architecture and design project by Kara Mann in her portfolio and thought it was fabulous. It is the Talbott Hotel in Chicago that got the makeover of a lifetime thanks to Kara's edgy glam style. I found some photos on their Facebook page. It wasn't pretty then but it sure is now!!!

Opulent spaces by Lori Morris

Unparalleled luxury. Opulent elegance. Traditional without boundaries. An avant-garde edge. Extraordinarily dramatic. Toronto-based designer Lori Morris is a force to be reckoned with. I cannot express enough how much I admire her boldness and originality. And her love of obscenely ornate moldings that make me want to cry tears of pure joy.

A designer's family home

Can a family home be seriously sexy? It can if it belongs to interior designer and owner of interiors boutique Pieces, Lee Kleinhelter. Oh my! Sleek contemporary lines with more than a nod to its historical suburb and all with the glamorous, sophisticated vintage vibe that Atlanta, Georgia based Kleinhelter does so well.

Feminine and glamorous in Stockholm

Every once in a while a Swedish home blows me away with some not-so-Swedish decor. This being one of them. I found this property on Lagerlings, and it is all about feminine glamour. Some velvet, a mirrored console, rugs with leopard and zebra prints, glossy black doors, pale pink walls, brass accents, marble....it is one really beautiful thing after another. I am not sure how much my husband would be into this home but I would LOVE to live here.

Colourful glamour in Madrid

It has been a very long and sweltering hot week and I am very grateful Friday is upon us! For me this weekend will be about bathroom renovation shopping (husband doesn't know this yet but I just typed it for all to read so I guess it has to happen now!), some personal house touring and photo taking for this year's Glebe House Tour (so excited!) and finishing up a house tour of my own for another blog (oh yeah!). I will leave you with this glorious apartment that is fancy and fabulous by Spanish interior design firm IN DESIGN (photos: Manolo Yllera)
