She’s a shining star of the U.S. interior design scene and we haven’t featured her work in years. Mea culpa. Time to atone. Sophisticated, multi-layered rooms, sometimes moody, at others glitzy, always inspiring. Modern mixed with traditional, fashion with art. Kara Mann… pure drama.
There is a connection. A physical tug at my heart strings. There is an acknowledgement, an empathy, an understanding. There is also envy. These rooms speak to me in calm, steady but persistent whispers. Enter. Be still. Dream. Interiors by Wick Design.
Is it really five years since we were introduced to the work of Summer Thornton on Desire to Inspire? As is my habit I’ll skip back and forward through our archives and click over to websites to see what the designers and photographers, stylists and architects have been up to since we last visited. Imagine the smile that spread across my face when I revisited Summer Thornton Design and discovered her take on the bachelor pad. Masculine and multilayered, elegant yet casual when needed. A touch of humour and bucket loads of style.
If life gives you lemons then make lemonade. If your cursed with knotty pine then embrace your inner 70s muse. Also helps to invest in a large piece of art 😉 By Bestor Architecture.
I thought I had a new photographer crush a couple of weeks ago when I featured the work of super talented Brit Alexander James, but because he has since emailed to give thanks and let me know he was in the process of updating his online portfolio, my crush has turned into a full-on room porn obsession! Here are a bunch of my new favourites…followed by some awesome kitchens later today.
