Jenny Wolf Interiors

By

I have found quite a bit of inspiration in the designs of Jenny Wolf Interiors but I wasn’t properly identifying the source until recently. There are so many spaces and vignettes that people pin sometimes without the source identified and that’s why I wasn’t aware of my appreciation for JWI but now I know where to properly direct my kudos and so do you. I love Wolf’s work for moments and spaces like these,

Cloth and Kind

By

A design firm to keep an eye on is Cloth and Kind. I highly recommend you take a spin through their entire portfolio, I think you’ll find it pretty darn inspirational. There are some killer moments in their work and sometimes, as a generally over-stimulated person cruising the internet like me, I find that killer moments in ID portfolios don’t come everyday. It’s collected, inviting, livable and really smart. These are some of my favorite images, In case you want to know who that lady is with the eyeshadow–that’s a Leigh Viner print.

Inspiration by Tom Dixon

By

I joined the nasty stop and go traffic in the rainy streets of Hollywood this past Thursday night to attend a book tour party in a sweet little pop-up gallery for Tom Dixon. Here is the nutshell. At the time that the commercial Italian furniture market took notice of Tom Dixon’s work, he was paid 3% on the wholesale price of every design that sold. He said that this was a pretty fair standard for Cappellini to pay its designers in the eighties. For some reference to how insane this seems to me, I just signed Jaxon Home up for a program that rewards publisher’s like The Estate of Things 4x that percentage for sales on the retail price! So, for all of you bloggers out there wishing you were designers, you might be better off joining an affiliate network or calling me up to chat about selling some sofas for Jaxon…

Rachel Bilson’s Home in Lonny

By

Sarah and I were having a little texty chat about blending the masculine and the feminine today, when she pointed me to this Lonny feature of Rachel Bilson’s home. I love it when Sarah recommends that I look up a specific design. It’s like getting a music recommendation from KCRW’s Anne Litt, or having the Pope pray for your healing. It just doesn’t get much more spot on. So, she laid this link on me, and the choir sang, lights all that. It’s that BLUE VELVET couch that I haven’t been able to shut up in my head. She even suggested that I place my parsons table up in the window like that along w/ some lamps, which is a really good idea if we had the space. My room is too narrow for dreams like that. Oh, and Heffe… look. No window treatments. I wonder if she and her…

Get the Look: Bilhuber’s Patio

By

Jeffrey Bilhuber designed this way cool blue/white/beige patio. If you aren’t familiar with Mr. Bilhuber’s work I recommend you run through his portfolio, prepare to be incredibly inspired and if you’re not…there’s probably not any help for you. In just a couple of weeks, I’ll hopefully be closing on a house with a screened porch that I plan to enjoy to the fullest. I want it to be comfy and Bilhuber’s design looks just like the setup I’d like because I always put an English roll arm sofa on my covered patio–always. So let’s get it!

Ashley Putman in Hey Billie

By

Come on don’t tell me you’ve forgotten Ashley Putman. She’s the freelance graphic designer from TX that’s had homes featured in Domino, then Lonny and now the fam has a country house in Hey Billie magazine. Seems they fell in love with a dilapidated farmhouse near Round Top, TX. I like all of the spaces Ashley has created for herself and her family, the mix is so good. And I’ve gushed over her before here and put the previous two featured spaces together. I’m wondering when Ashley will crossover and join the interior design world? Quick review of Ashley- First in Domino, Then in Lonny, And now she’s gone country in Hey Billie magazine-           and my desire to find a white farmhouse grows…

You’re the Bestest

You’re the Bestest

By

I was telling two of my co-workers (some of the few that will listen to me indulge and ramble on about design) about one of my favorite houses of 2010. Yeah I know its 2011 but these realizations take time, naturally. In my case my favorite house has a relevant correlation to where I am living at the time. My current house would be very comfortable with it’s interiors decked out with a traditional, casual, modern mix which is some of what my favorite house embodies. And as I told my co-workers I seem to love everything that comes out of Connecticut and the Hamptons lately so you’ll understand why I chose this house as one of my favorites. Without further a due, Its Cosima Von Bulow Pavoncelli’s Sagaponak, Long Island vacation home that was featured in the November 2010 issue of Town & Country. It came to exist on my radar after Erika…

Holly Carter on One Kings Lane

Holly Carter on One Kings Lane

By

I often take the opportunity to visit the sites of designers who have featured items on One Kings Lane. It’s an introduction to some designers who I might not have normally discovered.    Holly Carter joins that group of designers this week who have curated shops on OKL. Although Holly is from Bucks County, Pennsylvania she is now based in Southern Pines, North Carolina–my hometown. I noticed her new shop pop up in our little downtown area on Broad Street.   In addition to being a seasoned interior designer and remodeler, Holly is also a champion equestrian. The equestrian influence shows in her design and in her OKL shop.  Her love of horses I’m guessing is what may have brought her to Southern Pines, there is a huge equestrian community here.   Although the portfolio on Holly’s site is not quite complete yet, I noticed that one of her recent projects listed is The Sly Fox, which is…

Yo! It’s Betsy and I haven’t bloggered here in a long time…. but let me tell ya a little secret. I finally saw something that made me WANT to… Looky! You can click on the image to see more decor by Diamond Baratta, but honestly I wouldn’t – else you might lose faith in why I’ve ever tried to blog about interior design in my life. (Just kidding, its a totally great article, and I really like the concepts in it, I just don’t really care for the overall product. I think its a little bit much How bout you?) I do dig this particular picture though, from the exaggerated iron door hinges, to the shape of the wooden bench (similar),  and of course the obvious waterfall of black and white stair runner butted up against faux bois. Fun with Monochrome!!

Browsing: Designer Molly Leutkemeyer

By

Molly Leutkemeyer’s portfolio is a real treasure trove, you should probably take a look…you know just to be safe. Molly titled her blog mollyloot which I think is funny. There she provides some good eye candy and most importantly some good tips on design. Here are some of my favorites, kickin’ it off with a bang and yet another example of a compelling visual argument to paint the backs of those bookshelves, I can’t tell if I should take this seriously or not, wonder if Molly resisted and the homeowner really wanted to hang the portrait there? Also upon first inspection I thought it was young Emilio Estevez but then…no not so much.

Ellen Hamilton – you complete me

Ellen Hamilton – you complete me

By

This should set you up nicely for Monday, good solid eye candy. Ellen Hamilton, my eyes want to devour the rooms you have designed. gotta be custom, striped dining chairs I love when a sofa just takes over and when pattern commands in a small space modern fixture juxtaposed against the traditional railing this reminds me of Sara Ruffin Costello’s living room that everyone died over, only reinvented, Costello redux? Welcome to our home, the rest is gonna be awesome, make a statement where is that rug from? killer dressing room, would it put your outfit to shame? focus on the mirrored doors and the symmetry dining is an event every night gallery walls…yum
