Color in a home can be hard to work with but when it’s done well, it is so inviting and fabulous! Robert Passal’s Miami home is a wonderful example of how to make color work and look so good doing it! So many shades of beautiful blue, pops of color throughout and LOTS of great art work, Robert’s home is sophisticated, vibrant and fun. Love!

This Harlem Brownstone is so beautiful and refined but has a great sense of ease about it. The owners wanted something that felt natural to the area and trusted interior designer, Sheila Bridges, to make that happen. Using an excellent blend of antiques, textured and printed wallpapers, over-sized art and eclectic accents, Sheila worked with her clients to create a truly unique and spectacular home.

Sometimes a house is so simple and raw that the beauty of the home itself it what you notice more than what’s furnishing it (don’t get me wrong, there are some fantastic vintage pieces in here!). This private, country residence it Treviso, Italy is such a place. The clean exterior lines are accentuated by ivy that covers the house. The crystal clear glass reflects the beautiful surroundings in such a way that it winds up looking like mirrors. Venture inside and you find beautiful stone and wood floors and steel touches. Everything works so well together and creates a comfortable and sophisticated home. Well done, Zanon Architetti Associati!

Fashion designer, Jenni Kayne’s, Beverly Hills home is simple and spectacular! The rooms have high ceilings and are so open with the furnishings kept easy going, classic and beautiful. Some of the rooms made great use of reclaimed oak while others feature large concrete accents. The whole home is wonderfully put together and feels so comfortable.

I LOVE Joy Cho’s home!! There is so much life, fun, color and excellently put together design packed inside these walls. You are probably already familiar with Joy’s work, her blog, her Target collection and fantastic Pinterest page and her home is a tremendous reflection of her creativity and keen eye for detail. Love it all.

Inviting, relaxed, cozy, getaway, modern are some of the words that come to mind when I look at this wonderful Long Island home. Making great use of neutrals, a variety of woods, some fantastic textured accents, not to mention the spectacular outdoors, this house looks like a comfy beach haven.
