It's been since early last year that we've posted about the work of Alex Papachristidis, and he never ceases to amaze me. He is on my list of top 10 favourite designers. His designs have so much depth it's almost overwhelming - but in a good way. His style is not for the minimalist, which is why I love his portfolio so much. So much to look at, so many layers, so many patterns and colours. I am baffled at how well it all works together. I could never pull something like that off. That takes some pretty serious talent. And he's up to his eyeballs in it.

Ami McKay is a Canadian designer from Vancouver with impeccable taste. She is the designer on Makeover Wish, an HGTV series that rewards local British Columbia heroes with a $25,000 home makeover (not sure if it's still on the air). Fun and fresh style creates spaces that are energetic and inviting. And she's not afraid to use wallpaper!
I LOVE Kelly Wearstler's style, and when we got an email about a new project of hers I was excited to post about it.
"Poised to aesthetically amaze the most astute of second-home buyers with inspiring designs by internationally acclaimed tastemaker Kelly Wearstler, Viceroy Anguilla will unveil its model four-bedroom villa on Barnes Bay, March 15. This season offers the final opportunity to own part of Viceroy’s flagship overseas development – a limited collection of beachfront and blufftop villas, townhomes and resort residences embracing the pristine natural beauty and tranquility of this West Indie Island. "Overall, I was inspired by the tranquil beach setting," comments Wearstler of her work at Viceroy Anguilla. "In designing the property, we used textiles and techniques from all over the world, including hand-carved wood pieces from Asia, hammered metalwork from India and beaded artwork from Africa which offer a visual contrast with the modern architecture.""
WOW!!! Vacation anyone???
Alex Jordan and Dan Smieszny are co-presidents of the architecture and design firm Gregga Jordan Smieszny whose work has been published in countless Architectural Digests and House Beautiful among others. I admire the diversity of their work - it spans mid-century, art deco, neoclassical, modern and more. No matter what style, it all reads as elegant and sophisticated.
