Claudia Juestel, principal of Adeeni Design Group, has a website filled with beautiful images of her interior design work. But before I talk about her work, I've got to mention that her firm's name, Adeeni, is a Yoruba word that means "royal people". This is fitting as Claudia believes in making her client's home their castle, and treats each one like royalty. Her style is quite rustic, which brings such a level of comfort to the spaces with many rich earthy tones on the walls and in the fabrics used. Stunning Asian pieces are abound in her spaces, which I am so fond of, and she loves to use antique and flea market finds - which is fantastic because as you all know, Jo and I are crazy for anything vintage.

To London interior designer Veere Grenney purity of design and quality of finish are paramount. There is an intriguing combination of styles, perhaps a Fifties lamp juxtaposed with an eighteenth-century chair, that characterises his portfolio. Luxe, art filled spaces epitomise his work but there is a quintessential English vibe present. He is equally at home with a relaxed cottage feel still with his beautiful restrained elegance though.
Is that an aquarium in the kitchen? Wow!!
Jessica Lagrange launched her interior and architectural design firm (Jessica Lagrange Interiors) in 1998 in Chicago. Her work, a mix of modern and traditional, is a wonder; incredible that someone can be so talented at such opposing styles. Both she masters with elegance and exquisiteness.
Alexandra Loew and Lauren Soloff are from the desk of lola. Love their description of their design firm, "The ladies of Lola have created a unique practice that takes seriously one thing that architectural profession has too frequently overlooked: decoration." Yah! Fun, quirky at times and drop dead gorgeous their interiors scream "come on in, have a drink". First prize too for the best name for a fabulous design firm!
AJS Design, an architecture, interior and furniture design firm, was founded in 1992 by Abigail Shachat and is based in New York. Part of her philosophy is "creating spaces that appear more destined than arranged". Her designs are destined to be modern, minimal and functional. Throw in a rooftop cabin in the city (see last 2 photos) and you're all set.
