Youthful, chic, modern mixed with traditional, the rooms created by Manhattan based interior designer Sara Gilbane are casually elegant, practical yet fun. Love the patterns. Love the crisp blues and whites. Love the comfort. Far too many beautiful images on her website to include here. Make sure you check it out.

I happened upon some of Tracey Garet's work in a recent O at Home magazine and was smitten. Then I took a peek at her portfolio and was completely smitten. "It's ornamental, organic, streamlined, baroque, artisanal, mysterious and purposefully accidental looking". Featuring pops of colour that make me want to dash off to the nearest Benjamin Moore store. LOVE!!!
Casual, elegant interiors firmly based in the traditional style are the trademark of Laurie Steichen. This Californian designer captures the essence of lazy luxurious afternoons, that bewitched time between an afternoon of outdoor pursuits and the first cocktail before dinner. Intricate details and rich earthy fines are everywhere. Cocoon yourself in the simple sumptuousness.
Kim has featured Stephen Shubel's work before but I just had to revisit. This is his own space, a 1906 fisherman's cottage. I love the gentleman traveller, bon vivant feel it has as well as the quirky touches. I love a room that doesn't take itself too seriously but at the same time has all those little treasures you cherish close to hand. This is the sort of place that I'd love to spend time in to discover all the wonderful objects scattered about, their provenance, their stories.
Can I say I've died and gone to heaven? I wish I could because heaven would be this stunning apartment designed by ZK. Who are ZK? They are the stylish, the elegant the oh so hip design duo Cara Zolot and Elizabeth Kohn. Their young and creative take on the tradition of symmetry and traditional design takes this apartment to the next level. I'm clammering for more but at the moment this is the only project on their website but more are promised. I'll be checking back regularly. I need another fix!
