Include pieces that accentuate your personality and style.
My style is inspired by cultures throughout the world. I include items that I’ve both purchased on my travels and in my favorite boutiques. But I also find integrate furniture and accessories from some of my favorites chain stores as Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, Resoration Hardware, Z Gallerie and West Elm.
In the entry hall below, I combined pieces using earthen elements and tones. Smooth, metalic-finished ceramics and a dark, polished mirrored bench are grouped with contrasting rough surfaces of light wood and wicker and velvet-textured textiles.
New pieces integrate with antique treasures. I especially love the ornate, metal gate which anchors the items and provides a unique, textural backdrop. Pieces are positioned to emphasize the gradual rise of the gracefully curving staircase.
I adore global design. In this corner niche, elements are grouped and layered for interest. African ebony candlesticks harmonize with the Asian-influenced hammered brass platter and gracefully curved ceramic urns. These pieces combine for visual movement and balance.
Design with a sense of pride. Maintain space free of clutter to provide clarity of mind and contribute to a look of distinction. Display charished items. Eliminate excess.
Allow your space to radiate your ideal self.
