Fabulous Room 10.20.17

Green is one of my favorite colors. With the weather finally turning crisp and cool this week, I’ve especially had warm, saturated shades of green on my mind as they perfect for fall. This airy New York living room by design duo, Jennifer Hunter and Georgie Hambright of J + G Design is both timeless and fresh. In keeping with the style I love most, the upholstery is mostly neutral, in warm whites, with an anchor color, in this case, chic green, peppered throughout from the draperies to the throw pillows on the sofa, the large abstract painting, and green Scalamandré tigre velvet on the caned chair. Another special touch is the use of tortoiseshell from the mirror anchoring a vignette with two French chairs upholstered in a beautiful Miles Redd for Schumacher Chinoiserie fabric to the wallpaper lining the built-in bookshelves. This pretty apartment is at once classic and timeless, yet fresh and current.

Lust List: October 2017

After being in New York, Paris, and High Point, NC over the course of the past few weeks, I have finally gotten a taste of fall and am ready for some chic, new pieces to add to my fall wardrobe. This month, I am craving pretty blouses, cozy sweaters, structured bags, stylish boots and flats, and great jackets that work year-round. With so many items on my wish list this month, it’s probably a good thing that my birthday is only a couple of weeks away!

Feels Like Fall

I have just returned home from five days in High Point, North Carolina for furniture market. It was fun spending time with friends, both old and new, and I also found some wonderful new things for client projects we are currently working on. It was pretty warm the majority of the time I was there, so I was thrilled to return home to Houston yesterday evening and find that it feels like Fall here! The sun is shining and the temperature is crisp and cool, plus I am home with my sweet husband and dog child Tate and am looking forward to being back in my office. What more could one ask for? Since it feels like Fall– my favorite season– I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite rooms that exude a cozy, Fall mood.

Masculine Chic and a modern Mix

The November issue of ELLE DECOR features the chic apartment of composer, Jonathan Scheffer. Designed by the great Robert Couturier, the apartment is housed in the legendary Apthorp building, built in 1908 by the Astors. The home is tailored, masculine, and beautifully-layered with a fantastic assortment of striking art and textiles. I especially love the living room pictured above with the chic, armless sofa and stacks of books which draw the eye up to the spectacular, original plaster moldings. What do you like most about this apartment?
