A low slung armless sofa anchored by a pair of perfect cubes and sculptural table lamps, natural fiber rugs, splashes of vibrant color and exotic prints, large canvases of modern art, a pair of antique chairs mixed with a mid-century inspired cocktail table…for Veranda’s 2012 Hearst Designer Visions show house, designer… 124 more words

antony todd ~ lucite lantern

Yesterday I posted about the incredibly talented Antony Todd and his inspiring store in Manhattan…I purposefully saved a special treat for today’s post, one of my favorite pieces from the store and the first thing that wowed me when I walked through the front door, the Antony Todd designed lucite lantern…it is truly a masterclass in how to marry the past with the future…the shape echos historic Beacon Hill but his choice of paper thin lucite takes this traditional form into the 21st century…I also love how he balances the extra large scale with lighter than air materials…commanding yet weightless…masculine yet delicate…you always hear people say, it’s the simplest designs that are the most difficult to pull off…simple leaves you with the essence of the design, no smoke and mirrors or ornamentation to throw off your judgement, just pure design…for me, this piece has it all…form, function, balance, innovation, tradition and even a sense of humor…enjoy! 16 more words

living with photography ~ 15 inspired interiors

above, Kara Mann

Today’s post features fifteen of my favorite interiors…they are memorable for many reasons but today, they have one common thread…their artful use of photography…in each space, the designer thoughtfully incorporates photography into the environment…some with a bold gesture, (as with the Kara Mann designed dining room above) others with a small gem, that bring you closer for a more intimate look…whether a virtuosic solo or a large symphonic grouping, these interiors lovingly highlight the beauty of photography… 43 more words



Yesterday’s post featured the ultra chic Miles Redd and his iconic mirrored master bathroom. I couldn’t help but think about mirrors and the important role they play in architecture and interior design. 231 more words
