Just the tonic

A little bit Hollywood Regency. A little bit midcentury glam. A little bit calm and classic with a fresh bite of colour. It's about easy elegance, personality and fun. Like a lively interiors tonic this Sunset Plaza home by LA-based interior designer Ames Ingham has put some pep in my weekend.

Carla Lane Interiors - Santa Monica home

Before I introduce this post, I just wanted to say a quick THANK YOU to everyone who sent donations towards my 3 feral cats' vet bills. Once this post published Georgie, Frankie and Bernie will be at the vets getting everything done - checkups, tested for diseases, vaccinations, and spaying (if Georgie isn't pregnant - but both my husband and I think she is :( ) and neutering. If the estimate I was given is accurate I should have enough to foot the bill, so I can worry about the kitties instead of the finances. I really appreciate everyone's help. Here's hoping today goes smoothly! I will put updates on Instagram. (P.S. I have a few pets on furniture entries - keep on sending them in if you want this series to continue! kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net)

Now onto the subject at hand - a fabulously designed house in Santa Monica by LA-based Carla Lane Interiors. This home is simply decorated but packs a punch. Timeless spaces that are comfortable and clearly made to be lived in and loved. Well, I freaking LOVE that mirror over the fireplace. It is the perfect subtle graphic statement for that fireplace.

Geremia Design - Benvenue Avenue

Here is another project by the talented interior design firm Geremia Design. This one is amaaaaazing with some serious mid-century classics (Eames lounge, Saarinen womb chair, Bertoia diamond chair, Kofod-Larsen chair etc.) and OMG my yellow/orange stained floors! I guess when you have some seriously nice furniture and lighting all over it distracts you from the not-so-cool bits. That adorable kid is distracting too. :) (Photos: Melissa Kaseman)

Geremia Design - Canning Street

I am stoked to feature this home by Lauren Geremia of Geremia Design now that I got my hands on these fabulous juicy photos (by Melissa Kaseman btw). It is mid-century sophisticated with an youthful edge. We wanted to give our client an updated and contemporary look for his one story Craftsmen home, including furniture with detailing that nods to the architecture of the space. Our client travels frequently, but when he is home likes to host dinner parties and cook for his friends. We created a comfortable living and dining space that can accommodate guests, and curated a evocative selection of contemporary art that suits his taste. LED lighting and a custom designed hand oxidized brass media unit are design highlights of the project. (Previous features of her work here, here and here)

Victoria Elizabeth Design

Victoria Soloman of Victoria Elizabeth Design creates glam, sophisticated and timeless spaces using a mix of colours, patterns and delightful antique finds. I am a fan, as I seem to see eye to eye with her about how gold accents rule, and mixing eras lends an element of surprise to a space. Love her!
