With a pared back palette of neutrals S. Russell Groves and his team create rooms that are evoke luxury and elegance. This is an extensive portfolio crammed with images that are beautiful in their simplicity and well considered detail. Too many gorgeous spaces to share here. You are in for a wonderful time on the website.

Reader’s home, in Home magazine

Posted on Fri, 6 Jun 2008 by KiM

Julie Carlson of Remodelista blog emailed that her totally remodeled California home was featured in Home magazine. When I took a look at the photos, it was like everything I had always wanted in my home was there in hers! Incredible storage ideas, the cutest desk next to the kitchen with yet more storage, and even an outdoor bathing area!! And all in white. *SIGH*

If you love her bedroom (yep, I DO – the built-in shelving is FAB!!), then check out her “steal this look” post. P.S. Her architect was Jerome Buttrick and photographed by David Duncan Livingston.

If I were a room

…. or rather a series of rooms. I’m in love with this quirky, slightly eccentric mix of hard core concrete brutalism with an OTT lipstick red girly girl look. I want to soak in that tub! Oh and wear those shoes! More beautiful images from Denise Bonenti.

Reader’s Home

Posted on Wed, 4 Jun 2008 by midcenturyjo

I love it when readers want to share their homes on Desire to Inspire. Pamie from Singapore sent in a link to her apartment which she has just finished renovating. Wow Pamie it’s a great space. Love the tiles on the floor (and I’m not just saying that because I hate carpet). Love the clean minimalist lines. Love the red splashback in the kitchen. Did everyone notice the oriental decal on the Eames rocker? How cool is that! I want your screen as well. Thanks for letting us into your home.

David Jimenez

In my humble opinion, there is absolutely nothing more fabulous than mid-century modern and Hollywood regency. Pair these two styles (think Jonathan Adler) and I’m in heaven. PURE HEAVEN. My heart races when I come across portfolios as incredible as that of David Jimenez. I cannot believe Jo and I have not posted his work before. This genius of design has now made it to my top 5 list. His Palm Springs house, below, is something that dreams (mine anyway) are made of.
