European glamour with its sparkly chandeliers, ornate gilded frames, carved wood furniture and stacks of old books is a style that always captivates me. Annie Brahler-Smith of Illinois-based design firm Euro Trash does this so very well. Rustic-luxe is such a beautiful thing.
Classic and refined with an edge. Subdued yet bold, with a mix of new and vintage. Some really hot spaces by Houston based designer Benjamin Johnston.
I could not be more enthralled with this home in Chelsea (London) home designed by Shalini Misra. Impeccable attention to detail, totally unique and so much drama. I absolutely love every single thing in this home….except that dining table would make me completely mad with all the fingerprints (and I don’t even have kids!)

Can a family home be seriously sexy? It can if it belongs to interior designer and owner of interiors boutique Pieces, Lee Kleinhelter. Oh my! Sleek contemporary lines with more than a nod to its historical suburb and all with the glamorous, sophisticated vintage vibe that Atlanta, Georgia based Kleinhelter does so well.

Essentially the opposite of my last post which was modern and minimalist, this home is about as grand, lavish and French as it gets! The French Rooms is available as a location space through lordshippark.com and is two rooms occupying the reception floor of an imposing Victorian villa. Furnished with the finest French antiques, opulent fabrics and exquisite treasures, it’s not exactly decor I would want to live with 24/7 but I sure would love a weekend visit – without the herd of cats!
