Just a quickie post. This is one of my recent faves from Lonny Mag. I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Until next time!
I had a super low key weekend… you know the kind where you watch every movie you own while making all that popcorn stock you bought really work for you? Seriously though, when I wasn’t loafing around, I was looking for some blue rooms to inspire myself and you with. Have a happy Monday!
A beautiful, rich, dark blue room. I’d love to know who designed it!
Interior from the new Architectural Digest with Margaret Russell editing! Wow. If this is any indicator of what’s to com from AD… I might have to subscribe!
View of a Steven Gambrel room. So so beautiful!
A Vicente Wolf room. I love that canopied daybed with all the blue cushions!
JK Hotel from Lonny Magazine. Blue, black, and cream is starting to seem like a never fail combo! I love the big wing chairs and glossy black accents.
This soft Robin’s Egg blue lacquered living room is a standout.
A Miles Redd living room also with lacquered walls. I love the mix here of blue, brown, black, cream, and red. This room looks really livable doesn’t it?
Kelly Wearstler hotel restaurant design. Does she ever fail to knock a room out of the ballpark?
There is a new issue of Lonny out now! I LOVE that mag. I mean, could it be any cooler if it tried? Anywho, in the front with all the cool, newly discovered products are a couple of lamps that floated my light fixture lovin’ boat. Featured above:
Tom Dixon’s Etch Light – exclusive to Design Within Reach here in the US, made through some really cool use of production technology… and seriously sexy too!
The table lamp is the Tulip Family Lamp at Hive Modern. This tall, cage-like looker would be great in an entry hall or swank, Wearstler-esque living room.
I heart Lonny for finding these great pieces. It is one of the many reasons I swoon over every issue. Check out their latest.
Bathrooms are private rooms used only by the owner’s of a given house. So how often do most people think about the decoration and ambience of these little private worlds?
I think about it frequently… I’m semi-obsessed with classic, clean looking bathrooms with elegant touches: simple gilt framed mirrors, a marble bust of a French aristocrat, or wallpaper reminiscent of a winter forest.
White in the bathroom, for me, is synonymous with cleanliness. I love a bath fitted out in classic white with touches of black, grey, and metal.
But black also has its appeal as well. With an all black ground, every other color, print, or pattern just pops! It seems a great way to make the function of the room recede and to bring the color and texture of your materials to the forefront.
Above are a few favorites that I’ve gathered recently. What are your favorite color schemes for a bath?
The more I see Miles Reed’s work, the more and more impressed I become with his amazing ability to pile as much drama and color as possible into a room without making it look like a garish mess. He makes Kelly Wearstler seem restrained, if you can believe it! I adore his work.
Here is a link to a “behind the scenes” look at his revamp of the Oscar de la Renta showroom (over at Lonny Magazine’s blog on Posterous). As always, Redd knocks another stellar design out, and makes it look so homey that anyone could do it. That is talent!
