my new bold look

Maybe too bold but I am going to run with it for a while...

I have begun the revamping process of Mary Mowry Design. I am keeping it as minimalistic as possible - let her work shine!

Clean Concept

Breaking up your floor plan with a dividing wall/staircase that is a countertop/sink. Clean idea.

A guest room at Claridge's in London.

I Am Obsessed With Home Design...

Megan Mullally's Hollywood home is perfect. PERFECT! Her home is featured in this month's Elle Decor. If I had the money, I would replicate it today. Well, emulate it. I don't know if I am much of a pink person... The powder room walls are wonderful - I always envision my future home to have bold, bold wallpapers in the bathrooms. Love the look.

Brooklyn Home - I LOVE

This is the residence of two abnormally talented people - everything about it is perfect. Quirky but tame. I want to move in right now. Owners Lyndsay Caleo and Fitzhugh Karol are a goldsmith & interior designer and woodworker & interior designer respectively. Their home is enviable.

Really Cool Wall Mural.

my new obsession

I feel as though - or I should say I know - I have run across Madeline Weinrib's textiles and rugs before but I never knew her name or background or how extensive her collection was. She is the granddaughter of the founder of ABC Carpet & Home and she apparently was born with an inherent knack for design. Everything she does is so fresh and fun and unpretentious. I would like one of her rugs in my home. I need to make more money. :)
Funny - finding images online to post and saw a living room with one of her rugs that I have pasted in my living room section of my design scrap book. Knew I saw her work before! The room above is Nate Berkus's living room - maybe in Chicago? Love!

Modern Home - Cape Cod

This house was slated for destruction before the Cape Cod Modern House Trust came around. The home - "Kugel Gips" - was built in 1970 by prolific Cape Cod architect Charles Zehnder. Renovations were recently wrapped up and the home is now available to rent.
