I was surprised to learn that it was not in fact a Southern revival or located in the English countryside as I had originally presumed, but in fact a NYC apartment located on Hudson Street designed by Jenny Wolf Interiors!

The light filled space has a sense of airiness about that I just adore, and while the generously proportioned windows certainly help out, the look is fully achieved through various other elements. Cream & light gray walls paired with the bright white molding adds dimension while still maintaining an overall look of levity. Reclaimed wood furniture & accessories found throughout the apartment add a sense of warmth & character without weighing the space down space, while well-positioned mirrors reflect light adding just as much warmth as if a window had actually taken their place – I especially love the placement of the mirror above the kitchen sink where a window would typically be found!

A Fresh West Coast Interpretation of East Coast Tradition

I was flipping through the new House Beautiful last night, and fell pretty hard for this gorgeous Los Angelos cottage designed by Schuyler Samperton. I adore the fresh West Coast interpretation on the traditional East Coast Shingle Style cottage; complete with vibrant pops of colors, wallpaper galore and a relaxed sense of elegance.

What also really appealed to me was how heirloom antiques were used throughout the home. Our trip to Bordeaux afforded us the opportunity to not only stay at the Ren’s gorgeous Chateau (opposed to a hotel), but also live their day-to-day lives to a degree, including being surrounded by their gorgeous antiques. What pleasantly surprised me was that the antique furniture was actually being used (my clothes hung in a gorgeous 18th c. armoire), opposed to being shoved into a parlor room never to be touched (or seen for that matter). I’ve always been a fan of using antique furniture in a room, as it adds a level of history that typically can’t be achieved in new furniture. In addition, antiques are typically much more affordable than their brand new counterparts of similar quality – and quite often, the craftsmanship far surpasses most of what is made today.

Are you a fan of having antiques in your home?

The brand seems to be constantly evolving on the brink of fashion trends, while still maintaining a classic/timeless aesthetic – rendering the high price tags investment worthy!  I started following the brand on instagram a few months back, and while the dazzling array of jewels is mesmerizing, I was completely smitten with Danielle Snyder and Jodie Snyder Morel’s insane style! I quickly started following the sister duo on instagram (here and here), and to say I’m smitten is a bit of an understatement – these girls rock! A little boho-chic, a little Americana Western, a little 90’s grunge – and completely girl crush worthy!

I’m completely obsessed with these beauties – shop more of my favorites below…

Design Crush • Darius Rucker’s Charleston Home

And while some their spreads are quite beautiful, they completely lack personality and substance. However, mixing different styles and periods of can be tricky, often coming across as disjointed and out of place. But when done right, it’s as if the interior design gods have placed their blessing over the space! 

Such is the case found in this gorgeous Charleston home belonging to Hootie and the Blowfish frontman, Darius Rucker, designed by famed Southern interior designer Angie Hranowskysay. I absolutely adore the expertly orchestrated mix of periods and styles of furniture, paired with the colorful palette of textured neutrals and warm purples (that seems to be becoming Hranowskysay’s signature). The white walls lend themselves as the perfect backdrop for the enviable collection of art the Rucker family has amassed, from the likes of Sally King Benedict, Kate Long Stevens and Molly B. Right – just to name a few!

Are you a fan of mixing different styles and periods of furniture in your home, or do you prefer to stick with one genre?

I tend to be a bit of a neat freak, always tidying up, making sure everything is in its “place”. But after spending the better half of last night sorting through Kara’s portfolio, it really made me appreciate how perfect subtle little imperfections can be!

Design Crush • Karlie Kloss’ West Village Town House

As is the case with most of Mr. Berkus’ designs, the space is a perfect mix of impeccable antiques and modern shapes. I really adore the combination of glamourous mediums – brass, fur and silk – paired with more casual notes, like the jute rug and linen sofa.

Happy Friday to you all! Any fun plans for the weekend?

Design Crush • Patrick and Jillian Dempsey’s Malibu Home

The light-filled space feels so serene, cozy and modern (although house itself was designed in 1968!). I adore the stacked wood in the recessed bookcases next to the fireplace, adding a level of depth and warmth in such a natural way!

Although the home is situated in Malibu, it doesn’t scream California to me (which I like!). The decor inside could fit in with so many different locals – an Aspen chalet or NYC apartment immediately come to mind!

On a totally random note – have any of you started watching the new season of House of Cards? The first episode totally blew me away -what?!!!! Don’t think Billy and I will be fulfilling many PM social obligations this week!

A gorgeous palette of blue and white, zebra and malachite was carried throughout the home, and while the audacious combo could have been entirely overwhelming, the interior designer’s trained eye executed it with perfection! A true testament to if you collect things you love, the outcome will always be beautiful!

Do you have any collections? Blue and white, books, art, shells, packaged soaps, brass objects… I seem to have more than I can count!
