Inspired By: Fashion Week Color

March 18, 2013

Just waiting to see what my Loulou will pull off for Fashion Week this Thursday night got me thinking. I am less inspired by fashion magazines and more inspired by the authenticity of what people are wearing on the street.


On the Market

March 13, 2013

I'm over the moon to dive into another fun project with my dear friend Carolyn Evans, author of Forty Beads, this time renovating an amazing mid-century house complete with original parquet floors and floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the pool. We designed her previous home, a beautiful single row house in downtown Charleston, which was featured in Southern Living and is now on the market. You can see the listing and check out the entire house here. I have a feeling it won't last long.


Inspired By: Mexico City

March 11, 2013

As I'm thinking about where to travel next, Mexico City being high on my list, I am drawn to artists like Cuban born Jorge Pardo. As a painter, sculptor, designer and architect his work explores the crossroads between design and fine art. A while back I fell hard for a house that he designed for a client in Naguabo, Puerto Rico. It's rich in color and texture, combining the classic and the contemporary. He leaves most of the concrete structure open, wrapping it in red metal screens instead of glass, creating a blood red swimming pool and shifting the color of the floor tiles from yellow at the front of the house to blue at the back. This house pushes the boundaries as does all of his work.

Stunning! These X Chairs by Israel's Rami Tareef combine his desire to preserve traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design. By using the traditional form of weaving on an angled bent steel frame he's created an original collection of chairs with the most amazing geometric patterns.
