The library in the home of Jackie Astier via Elle Decor.
My taste is changing… Again! For a while there I was leaning towards the Hollywood glam revival (epitomized by decorator Mary MacDonald). I still like elements of that style: bold patterns, lacquered surfaces, and blingy metals. But, as I mentioned yesterday, part of me loves the relaxed and collected refinement of (personal fave) Thomas O’Brien.
I think today’s room captures a little bit of both. This is the library of stylist Jackie Astier. I love the mix of textures and shine, faux Bois wallpaper and the mirror (a screen?) on the corner table. It looks inviting and comfy… and sexy.
See the rest of the apartment here… and have a great Tuesday everyone! 🙂
I saw this room while I was surfing Pinterest. I followed the links to La Dolce Vita’s blog where it was shown as part of the This Or That feature. The home office belongs to Lauren Gold of Nate Berkus Associates and was featured in the July/August issue of Lonny last summer. The whole apartment is amazing but this office just… Wow! Right?
I’m off to work now. I’m trying my hand at fashion tomorrow. You’ll have to let me know if I’m hopeless with that. 🙂 Have a happy Tuesday, everyone!
Sometimes when you’re looking at interiors, you come across a space that speaks to your soul. Perhaps that’s a little melodramatic but I was so entranced by Darcy Miller Nussbaum’s home in the February 2012 issue of Architectural Digest that I’m sure woke the dead with all my oohing and aahing. There is loads more of this winning design by MR Architecture + Decor at Architectural Digest.
Another quick post from me today. This is the living room of Ochre and Canvas store owners Andrew Corrie and Harriet Maxwell MacDonald. I’m loving the grayed down, cool colors and the pale wood… and then little bits of Glam thrown in. Amazing.
I hope you’re having a great Monday! See you tomorrow. 🙂
Amy D Morris kitted out this fantastic room for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine Showhouse… and what a stunner! This room is so beautiful, glamourous, brilliant… and sexy. I keep coming back to the photos and just drooling over the dark, blingy richness of the room’s scheme. It is definitely too good to keep to myself!
Check out the rest of the AHLShowhouse, there is a TON of design inspiration. Enjoy!
