Jessica Gersten

Posted on Tue, 30 Oct 2018 by KiM

Modern eclectic is the signature look of interior designer Jessica Gersten. An eye for one-of-a-kind antiques mixed with contemporary designs allows for the creation of a unique juxtaposition in her work. Jessica’s rooms begin with neutral base colors, organic shapes, and ethnic patterns and textures. She then cultivates a distinctive style by applying layers of mid-century lighting, bold sculptures and modern iconic furniture designs. This is a first-time feature on the blog for this New York designer, and I will be keeping my eye on her work for future posts. Love the drama of these spaces!


La Cartuja – a whimsical mansion

Posted on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 by KiM

Welcome to the magical and whimsical world of Jorge Cañete of design studio Interior Design PhilosophyThe word Serendipity is crucial in the studio’s philosophy. This world means a « happy accident » or « pleasant surprise »; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. The ultra-personalized approach of the studio INTERIOR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY suggests creating projects that are inspired by the environment, by the location itself, as well as the client’s personality. In doing so, the resultant of the equation of these three sources of inspiration is unique and coherent every time, by materializing clients’ emotions. Each project starts as a white page where the story and values of the client will be written. Given this philosophy, I would LOVE to get to know the homeowners of this mansion. Also, the way that chandelier is “hung” almost has me in tears it is so beautiful. (I highly suggest you also view Jorge’s portfolio with the sound on)

Markham Roberts

Since it has been about a decade since we featured some of the glorious spaces of iconic New York designer Markham Roberts, I thought it was time for a re-visit. A mix of traditional, contemporary and rustic yet always elegant and timeless.


A historic Montecito estate

Alexandra and Michael Misczynski of Atelier AM take elegance and glamour to a whole other level. Every time I come across one of their projects my heart melts. This one may be my favourite. I can’t even get beyond the first photo of the dining room.

For more check out this Manhattan apartment, this Santa Fe villa and this L.A. home.

The softest shade of green

Posted on Thu, 27 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

There’s something about that green. Cool, calming, refreshing like a dip in the ocean or a drop in the temperature on a hot, hot day.  Add the gold accents, the hint of lucite and pattern repeat of lattice and I find myself scheming a way to include a small garden room in my own home.
