European glamour with its sparkly chandeliers, ornate gilded frames, carved wood furniture and stacks of old books is a style that always captivates me. Annie Brahler-Smith of Illinois-based design firm Euro Trash does this so very well. Rustic-luxe is such a beautiful thing.
Classic and refined with an edge. Subdued yet bold, with a mix of new and vintage. Some really hot spaces by Houston based designer Benjamin Johnston.
I could not be more enthralled with this home in Chelsea (London) home designed by Shalini Misra. Impeccable attention to detail, totally unique and so much drama. I absolutely love every single thing in this home….except that dining table would make me completely mad with all the fingerprints (and I don’t even have kids!)

The design approach of Louisiana based firm Ty Larkins Interiors is “liveable elegant modern”. Mixing antique/vintage pieces with modern is the way they roll and coincidentally, how I roll too. This home is on the traditional side but has some modern lines that makes it less stuffy and more cool. Inspired by city houses, this detached Greek Revival Townhouse was designed and built in an established leafy neighborhood by Ty Larkins Interiors. Every effort was taken to make it convincingly “period” suggesting it had been built a century earlier. The traditional and formal interior architecture is juxtaposed against a young and modern decor, creating a beautiful and unexpected tension.
Minimalist, modern living within a historic shell. Beautiful traditional tiles flow throughout the apartment defining and grounding each zone while contemporary furniture pieces sit on, almost apart, from the busy patterns. A holiday home for an English family by Barcelona-based Spanish-German architectural and interior design firm YLAB Arquitectos. Elegant and comfortable.
