Found an excellent website for Chicago Home magazine. Below is a selection of my favourite photos, with some eclectic modern art and lighting to die for.
The Bourgie lamp, designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell, is one of my favourite lamps. I love the juxtaposition of the baroque shape with the modern edge of the polycarbonate plastic. So for those who share my love of this lamp, enjoy some Bourgie porn.
In my searches for photos of beautiful rooms, I came across a website called Ifi from Norway. It doesn’t really matter that I understood maybe 3 words on the site, all that matters is that they had some blog-worthy photos of interiors.
William Diamond and Anthony Baratta began their partnership 25 years ago. Their firm is hugely successful. They have over 25 magazine covers to their name, including House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House & Garden, Southern Accents, The World of Interiors, Traditional Home, and Veranda. “Best known for their great diversity of styles in a grand scale, Diamond Baratta’s design projects include residential projects in French, English, and American styles — and a newly inventive Modern style. All include the Diamond Baratta dynamic of enlarged scale and genius color interpretation”. I love their style – it reminds me of a slightly subdued/less whimsical Jonathan Adler.
I eagerly await each new month at Domino. No not the magazine but the website. I can’t find the magazine here in Australia so the monthly online update is my eagerly awaited fix. And this month’s held a pleasant surprise, more photos of Nick Olsen’s home. I know it has been featured in the magazine (and we’ve posted the first 2 pictures before) but I, along with most of our overseas readers, haven’t seen it. Nick has a great sense of style. It’s witty, classic yet eclectic with lashings of Hollywood Regency thrown in and embraces colour in all its glory. I loved it when I saw the first few pictures now the room is more complete for me.
