Good Design in 2017

As we’re adjusting to writing an “8” in the date, I want to take a quick glance in the rear view and think about some of the spaces that were on repeat on my Pinterest feed.

Without question the first room that comes to mind is Brian Paquette’s design. If you’re not familiar with Brian’s work, now you are and you’re welcome. From the Apparatus chandelier to that Wisteria chair that I’ve loved for so long to those handsome barstools.

We already wanted to remodel a ranch right? and now Jennifer at the Ranch Uncommon has made us mad for it after her sunny California ranch made the cover of Country Living. I’m ready to blow out the walls and coat it in Decorator’s White any minute now.

 

Vibrant green library, color blocked books, modern twist on tradition. North Carolina shooting star designer Charlotte Lucas, is serving tradition with a twist. P.S. now we like our Beni Ourain carpets with a tad bit of color.

Michelle Adams’ move out of NYC and in to a home of her own in Michigan tops my personal list of best spaces easily. The entire house is full of moments that make you say, I want my place to look like that. Michelle’s home is youthful yet sophisticated with a little edge.

You’re in the jungle baby, well technically the jungalow. Justina Blakeney’s cobalt blue shower and really the whole bathroom gave us a break from a white subway tiled world.

Former fashion editor Jessica de Ruiter’s modern rustic home shows up in my internet realm consistently. De Ruiter and her husband Jed, who is a designer at Commune,form a dream team of sorts that created a modern and sensibly stylish home in SoCal. If you want to see a lot of honey toned wood and white walls harmonize, this is a must see.

William McLure’s whole spot I think is noteworthy and maybe his intro to the (my) world was in 2016 but I don’t think we’ve covered him here yet and so its undoubtedly worth a mention. McLure said in a little designer interview, that you should always splurge on art and antiques for your home, he practices what he preaches.

Any kitchen swirling around in the blogosphere with blue cabinets. And we aren’t talking navy any more, it’s all about the varying grey/blue or pacific blue tones these days. This has been happening for a couple of years now but the trend is really picking up speed in 2017.

 

 

 

So that’s a little snippet, do you have anything to add here?
