It’s All About Your Home: Winter 2017

New photos on my site! Brows this beautiful East Village Townhouse and more.

3 Ways To Connect With Your Home:

1. Take inventory on your belongings and decide which are functional, beautiful, and which are just stuff. Recycle, donate, or regift the superfluous!

2. Create fresh vignettes in eye-catching spots around your home. Group a treasured object, art books, and some greenery on an entry console.

3. Connect with loved ones. Invite family and friends over to enjoy your newly revived space.

 

 

 

 

Inspiration
Palazzo Fendi Lounge: Rome, Italy

All Roads Lead To Rome.
I am inspired anew by my love, bell’Italia. During a Fall visit to this magical land, I visited Palazzo Fendi to reconnect with old colleagues and toured the recently remodeled 17th century space. This chic, avante-garde room looks toward the future while maintaining historical roots, with its geometric lines and boiserie a deep teal. It exemplifies a design philosophy that our homes keep us grounded while giving us the space to thrive.

Creating Sculpture with Light: Transatlantic Style
This cluster of geometric pendants creates a suspended sculpture of diffused light. Set aglow above glass table by French designer Paul Mathieu for Holly Hunt and vintage deep blue-violet chairs by Italian designer Gianfranco Frattini for Cassina, creating this Transatlantic design moment.

I was excited to find this light’s designer Tom Dixon listed in Boutique Design magazine’s “Heroes and Mavericks” article.

NEW YORK’S 50 SHADES OF GRAY
The snow and the wind gets New York City gritty real fast. Billowy white drifts are short-lived as sooty, dirt-specked, packed mounds of ice and muddy, slushy, wet puddles make themselves right at home. The view is bleak as we trundle through the cold in a city veiled in way more than 50 shades of grey ranging from hazy cloud cover to slick black ice. New York City’s Winter Canvas.

Upon this backdrop, both the Museum of Modern Art and the New Museum of Art exhibited shows that were anything but bleak. The joyful, bold and bright palette of Matisse’s Cut-Outs at MoMA and Chris Ofili’s sensual, warm, bright and textural works at New Museum, were both infused with unexpected, free and experimental interactions of color in art works masterful and rich. New York City’s Winter Colors.

No surprise then that my palette is experiencing a shift. I can’t get enough of warm, rich and bright jewel-toned colors around me. In various combinations and layers. An interior cycle is said to last 10-15 years while a fashion cycle for 2.5-5 years. 2015 is off to a very bright start indeed!
