House of Gold

 The House of Gold is nestled in a medieval town in Croatia.

Courtesy of desire to inspire, the House of Gold is a beautiful home renovation.  You can see how amazing the transformation was by checking out the “before” photos on this blog.

The interior design of the house is very simple and fresh.  The funky rocking chair is cool!

 Throughout the house, there are unexpected splashes of yellow and red.

 The house has a very beautiful, white aesthetic.  It makes the punches of yellow and red that much more impactful.


 Talk about spontaneous.  A red step here,  A red post there.  A yellow vertical plank here.  Love it!

 A wonderful view of the Croatian countryside.  I can imagine reading my Kindle there.


After a hard days work, you want to be able to enjoy a nice, uncluttered bedroom.  You can enjoy a nice conversation with the two simple, mid-century modern chairs in the corner. 

 This is a good way not to forget a recipe.

 Something about chalk writing always gets me excited (maybe it just brings back childhood school memories)!  For home decor purposes, the chalk brings a very personal touch to any home decor.

High Fashion Home Fall Mini-Catalog

Front cover: Dome Chair

The High Fashion Home mini-catalog has been a work in progress since 2007.  Now with 2011 quickly approaching, we have just unveiled our first mini-catalog (clocking in at a monstrous 8 pages big).   Putting the catalog together was much more difficult than expected, yet a whole lot of fun.  We have to thank the amazing team over at Adcetera for helping make all of this possible.  And most importantly, we hope you enjoy perusing through 8 pages of home furnishing goodness!

Let’s Go To The Country

I just adore this modern country house (thank you Elle Decor for featuring it). The scenery surrounding it is breathtaking and the house is so wonderful. It belongs to architect Steven Harris and interior designer Lucien Rees Roberts. They decided to set their weekend retreat on 50 acres of land between the Catskills and the Berkshires; so incredible. Enjoy. : )

 This is a picture of their driveway. Amazing!!

 The croquet lawn. : )

 I like the different styles and shapes of furniture.

 I love the stairs. Just pop up in the middle of the room.

 Fantastic kitchen with a lovely view!

 Glass pocket doors open to reveal this dining area.

 The terrace is so beautiful. That’s an apple tree and creeping thyme was also planted.

 A view of the studio.

 Another amazing view of the great outdoors from the bedroom. Love!

Ending with my favorite. I LOVE a wonderful outdoor spot and this is so perfect!!

Fashion-Inspired Rooms by CasaSugar

This post is dedicated to SarahWithStyle, HFH Blog’s former chief writer.  She always loved writing about “Fashion Vs. Furniture”, due to her fashion degree background.  As soon as I saw “Fashion-Inspired Rooms” by CasaSugar, I immediately thought of her.  All of the outfits are courtesy of talented designer, Chris Benz.

The punches of green are very vibrant in this setting.

 I love everything from the striped carpet to the understated, elegant glass trestle table.  I even dig the geometric pattern on the arm chair.

 Towering ceilings, retro colors and textiles, mid-century modern chair…pretty groovy.

There seems to be a lot going on in this bathroom, yet the decor is in actuality, quite simple.

Fuchsia is a very strong color right now in home decor.  Our best selling Annie Chair is a testament to that trend.
