“Smoke and Mirrors” is a modern interpretation of a sexy boudoir. The space is an antidote to the demands of modern connectivity and embraces the luxury of solitude. The room provides a platform to indulge in self-care, with a grand clawfoot soaking tub, a sensuous curving window seat, and a custom bar and make-up vanity. The soft arches of the entry hall create a dramatic sense of arrival with deep green walls and rich stone detailing. A striking hand-painted mural by de Gournay, inspired by the iconic Elsie de Wolfe, anchors the main salon. Contemporary art is juxtaposed against old-world charm throughout. Graphic, multi-colored marble tiles from Alison Rose for Artistic Tile add a modern spin to a traditional material palette in the separate bathroom space. The thoughtful details and layers of luxury create the ultimate escape.”
Show houses allow designers to push boundaries, experiment, and showcase their skills. I’m inspired by this sexy boudoir in the Kips Bay Show House 2019 by Studio DB. Where oh where can I include a bar in my bathroom? Genius.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish and what could be more stylish than a designer’s own offices? Atelier ND Office by who else but Atelier ND Interior.
Better make that red, white and blue AND green. Old meets new in this shingle-clad home in Bellport, Long Island by Michael Vincent Design. The perfect holiday bolthole mindful of the original architecture and age while providing all the modern touches. Bring on the long hot summers.
Pale shades of peach, yellow, green and blue and a statement sofa in Josef Frank fabric create such a fun, cozy atmosphere in Utah-based designer and stylist Meta Coleman‘s adorable home. Embracing colour and pattern and vintage and owning it.
This is why I admire interior designers so much. Their attention to detail is something I can barely wrap my brain around. To come up with so many colour combinations and patterns and architectural details in every single room….blows my mind. This home by Steven Gambrel again has me in complete awe of all of these details in every square inch.
