Golden Girl

Gold?  Yes, ladies..gold.  This is the conversation I have been having all year with my clients.  Gold is back and done right..it never went out.  Gold is the ultimate luxury.  Set against white, chocolate or black...I love it all.  Gold is old world Chanel, Paris and L.A. modern all at the same time.  Modern glamour wrapped in laid back luxury is my style prediction for 2011.  What woman doesn't want more glamour in her life?

Black Friday

Given that I shop as a profession, you will not find me anywhere near a mall today.  I love to shop for clients and absolutely despise shopping for myself.  Therefore, this is my Black Friday to share with you.  Those of you that know my work, know that I love designing with black.  Black is sophisticated, rich, mysterious and chic.  Everyone wears it but few are daring enough to live in it.  No surprise, I actually have an all black sofa that is almost nine feet long.

Dangerously in Love

Love is the ultimate inspiration. As someone pointed out to me, love also makes a regular appearance on my blog. I was saving the first image of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash and the last image of Robert Redford and Barbara Steisand from The Way We Were for a blog on classic casual American style. This seems a better fit.

Looking Forward

The following photographs just seem to capture where I am in design and where I am going.  The first photograph by Steven Meisel for Vogue has served as an inspiration for me for my work in 2010, volumous black silk tafetta, black tulle, fringe and crystal, shades of amethyst and smokey gray, grand, European, old world glamour.  

The second photograph also by Steven Meisel for Vogue, I happened upon tonight.  This is definitely at the top of my inspiration board for 2011.  Laid back luxury and modern glamour.

Chinoiserie

One of my favorite design projects has naturally elvolved into an entire house of toile. Our client is madly in love with toile, especially chinoserie, and so are we. I've included some of my favorite chinoiserie style spaces below. Enjoy.
