Sundays are for lounging and dreaming. Perhaps dreaming of a faraway land where 17th century Grade I Georgian mansions prevail, in this case in the Suffolk countryside surrounded by an orangery, gardens, woodland, pool and pond, and are filled with treasures. I could dream all day long about how much potential this wonderous home has….. Location home available through Shoot Factory.
What was once the very dated mid century Nashville home of country singer Tammy Wynette, is now a chic, hollywood glam meets contemporary cool and casual space with one of the sweetest pools I have ever seen. How much of a challenge would furnishing a home with so many curved walls be?! ‘TammyWood’ designed by Rachel Halvorson.
Wallpaper creates instant drama or texture in any space. Sure, it’s a commitment but if you’re brave enough it can work wonders. In the case of Mendelson Group Inc. it makes a frequent appearance and often times is used in a more subtle via grasscloth which adds such a warm texture and can be alot more subtle than using a print. In my home I have wallpaper in my foyer/staircase/upstairs hallway and almost 5 years later I could not love it more. Hopefully this post will be inspiration for you to try out some wallpaper in your home.
High intensity colours and patterns can be found throughout this San Juan, Puerto Rico condo designed by Stewart Rodriguez. From the moment you step out of the elevator you know you are in for a treat. The fashion editorial photograph of the glass encased model sets the tone of what’s behind the main door. Bold colors and art are the inspiration for this interior designer’s home. Fearless to kelly green walls that wrap the living room and dining room allow for the eclectic furniture pieces to come alive. The combination of a pink chair with the yellow sofa show how strong colors palettes can work perfectly in a space. The dining room is a stunning blend of modern with old romanticism. The “Study for ‘La Grande Jatte’, by Georges Seurat, 1884-5” in the National Gallery and the amazing fashion editorial piece of Alice in Wonderland by a Barcelona fashion photographer create a dining room to remember. The master bedroom chinoiserie wallpaper with the bold patterns on the upholstered bed make a bold move look peaceful and chic. This home is a great testament of living surrounded by the things you love…
WOW there is alot going on in this home and I REALLY love it. Zoë Feldman Design took a very unique approach with the choices of colours and patterns throughout the home and the result is alot of fun and fabulously eclectic. Also, if you ever doubted the power of high gloss paint….
Color, pattern, & texture fill this eclectic Spring Valley home. Our client’s, fans of all things British, fashion, and believers in the “more is more” adage, quickly challenged us to find our inner maximalists. However, the real task was to create cohesion in such a layered and whimsical space. Our goal was to show enough restraint, without sacrificing any interest, to curate a natural relationship between the spaces. We utilized patterns and colors that one may not typically view as neutral to create a sense of layered complexity. In the entry, the leopard print stair runner serves as an organic neutral that enhances the effect of the floral patterned wallcovering. Throughout the home, small scale pattern serves as a complimentary juxtaposition to larger scale prints in a way that a solid would never be able to achieve. The kitchen serves as relief, a sort of palette cleanser, by using tonality over prints. The entire space is a study in balance leaving one to question everything they ever thought was true about neutral.
