New Year's Resolution....

I'm going to start back on my blog this week. It's been since....May. Shameful. A few shots of this home in the Dec/Jan 2011 issue of House Beautiful to start me off...

Den Redo

Same room from an earlier post, but I changed the room around and added a new piece of furniture and art. Earlier post: http://mystyleanddecor.blogspot.com/2009/09/another-room-in-progress.html

This is our front entry. I wanted the decor to be crisp, simple and light, and very telling of our style. (I adore the little buddha head....)

Fingers crossed....

I found this peacoat on sale at Restoration Hardware. I know! Restoration Hardware. I'm skeptical, but the price was really good. So, if I'm happy with it I can always have it altered (it's a unisex, so I suspect it's going to need altering to some degree). We'll see...

Ryan Brown's LA home

This house is just cool. Great for entertaining - it's comfortable, hip, cozy, 'loungy', and looks like it probably has great flow.

Kartell find....

Paul found this chair (a real Kartell? or flawless repro?) at Homegoods. An absolute steal.

Perfect Tuxedos

I really would love to own any of these tuxedos - they nailed the fit.... But when Tom Ford wears Tom Ford, what else would you expect?

Is it Spring YET????

I selected my favorite outdoor rooms from Elle Decor. Some of these are just absolute fantasy. I'm so ready for Spring so we can ready our own outdoor space for summer use.

Red Room

I think red rooms are very difficult to pull off. But this one, as shown in Elle Decor, is a showcase of how to do it right (the interior designer is Bibi Monnahan). I mean, Wow!, I would love to walk into this room everyday. It's modern, traditional, and hollywood glam all-in-one. I would have to stack those magazines in the lower right corner, though.

New art for Master Bedroom

We selected the art for the master bedroom... our friend Kelly Walker is the artist behind this multi-medium piece (http://baltimoreartstar.com/). It blends beautifully into the room and provides the perfect focal point. Thank you, Kelly!

These images really inspire me. The design is by Andrew Halliday and David Greer.

Orange Again....

I forgot where I found this photo, but this is a Stunning room. (Notice the orange...)

Master Bedroom

The wall color is RL "Prince" - upon the first few brush strokes I wondered if I had chosen correctly, but I love it. I think in an empty room the color is not one that you would necessarily find appealing.... however, once I started putting the room together it all fit wonderfully, which was my intended plan since I chose the color to coordinate with the other items (Yay for me!) The hunt is now on for the perfect piece of art above the bed - I'm thinking an abstract with shades of yellow to bring in some color against the neutral tones.

Angie Hranowsky


Although it is not exactly the look I would pursue, I'm amazed at how brilliantly she pulls her rooms together. Simply stunning.
