I am sharing a bit of Architectural Digest inspiration today as these 2 homes caught my attention hard and really got my design juices flowing. This first one was featured in AD France and is located in Place du Palais-Bourbon. Doesn’t get much swankier than that…until you see inside this apartment! It is a stunner, down to the brass trim in the living room. And will you look at the hardwood in the photo below!! Designed by Studio KO, photos by Ambroise Tézenas.
This was in just as fabulous but much more casual, bright and showcases some gorgeous vintage furniture and lighting. Featured in AD Germany, this next home is that of fashion photographer Andrea Maino and is located in a 100 year old converted shoe factory in northern Italy. Photos by Helenio Barbetta.
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!
Welcome to the magical and whimsical world of Jorge Cañete of design studio Interior Design Philosophy. The 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)
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.
