Entries in interior designer (1464)
Studio William Hefner has a holistic vision. Architecture, interiors and landscape are considered as they relate to one another. The house is designed from the outside in and out again. Liveable, stylish and classic with attention to the luxury touches. I love the restrained palette and light, open feel to the rooms in this Rustic Canyon Residence. The attention to detail is so beautiful.
Cara Scarola and Andy Beers are the dream team behind interior design firm Ore Studios. Their rapport began on the first day of design school. While she maintains that she knew they would become fast friends based on their coordinating shoes, he can claim no such great intuition. (Her version makes a better story.) After three years of graduate work, dozens of late nights, and countless cups of coffee, that hunch was confirmed. By then, they had developed a shared vernacular and sensibility that informed the way they each approached interior design. Cara leads their office in Santa Fe and Andy in Seattle. These two bring dull spaces to life with comfortable decor that lightens, brightens and softens. Lovely! (...and a bit more coming up later)
It does not take long when perusing the portfolio of architecture and design firm Luigi Fragola that they are based in Europe (Florence, Italy in fact). Those brilliant folks on that side of the world really know how to make a space stunning with attention to architectural details. The shelving, cabinetry, floor tiles and colours used in these spaces is really knocking my socks off.
Sometimes when I'm overwhelmed by work, exhausted and almost ready to burst into tired tears I go to my virtual happy place. Today (and for a very long time in fact) my happy place is this bathroom by Made by Cohen. You would have seen it before on the blog . You may have even saved it to your inspiration files. Now excuse me as I shut the door. I have a virtual bath to soak in.
