As I am shopping around for my country home, I'm pulling inspiration for the decor and overall feeling of the house.  White!  White walls allow objects, antiques and art to stand out.  It creates contrast.  The play between sleek and worn, new and old.  It's magical....

I love collecting.  a pair is always better than one, and three is even better, but when you have a collection it creates a statement!  Collect what you like, display as you will.  The story will unfold...

Happy Fall and Cooler Evenings

My favorite time of year is upon us. The days are getting shorter, nights cooler and the smell of natures decay is in the air. Here are a few images I've collected to inspire. Happy Fall!

A Tribeca Loft

Just had to post this one today. Have a look at Vera Wang president Mario Grauso's, 3.000 square foot loft he shares with his other half, Brood designer Serkan located in Tribeca. They have a nice looking collection of curiosities combined with just the right balance of color, texture, refinement and cozy.

Article from Harpers Bazaar.

Add industrial-chic style to your bathroom or laundry room with utilitarian sinks

Vintage European sinks called slop sinks, were used for filling up deep buckets with water and taking them to the barn. Heavy washing and cleaning were made easier with these sinks because of the large basins. Highly practical for hand washing clothing and large items.

 

 

I found this oversized slop sink in Los Angeles in an architectural salvage store. I saw it sitting on the floor and I fell in love with it! I had to have it. Knowing I had a perfect place for it in the Butler’s pantry I am designing.

 

 

 

The slop sink will go through a restoration process and I can’t wait to see the finished product. I was going through some of my vintage linens to find what piece will be used for the apron skirt. I have it narrowed down to these!

 

 

 

 

My Design tip: When you are renovating a kitchen, laundry or bath think vintage pieces...they make a strong statement . One of a kind vintage sinks and tubs can be restored beautifully.

 

Have a beautiful Saturday... Hot here in SoCal!

Brown + White

I know it's a little early, but I am so ready for fall and winter. Brown and white are such cozy colors and create the perfect contrast. They make me think of the winter months. Fall is right around the corner!

Natural State

 Here is a look at Brian Ferry's photographs of artist Joseph Shuldiners space and some of his inspiring creations at his California home. Joseph has a fun collection of vintage objects and some cool mid century pottery mingled throughout. I can appreciate Shuldiners approach to his art.

Using willow, eucalyptus, leaves, paper and found objects, Shuldiner’s work addresses the inherent tension between the natural state of his materials and the degree to which they are modified in the creation of his pieces. The results are both inspired by and a commentary on such diverse influences as traditional Japanese Shinto aesthetics, animism and case study architecture of the 1960s.
