A bit of vintage

The very well articulated home of art dealer Brent Sikkema by Interior designer Corinne Gilbert from MC & Co.



Just perfect mix of modern and vintage. Love the soft curves of the Bloomy armchairs by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso paired with the Jean Prouvé coffee table. Photographs are by Vik Muniz and the floor lamps are 1967 designs by Angelo Mangiarotti.


A Jean Prouvé bench adds warmth to this all white kitchen.


Hans J. Wegner lounge chair. A gouache by Sol LeWitt hangs above a headboard upholstered in wool. The lamps are by Ross Lovegrove, and the tactile vintage bedspread is by Paco Rabanne.

Good morning sunshine!

It’s monday so let’s start our week off with a bit of perfect from genius Christian Liaigre.



Unbelievably gorgeous and sumptuous mix of materials with metal, parchment, and velvet.




Christian Liaigre is the king of creating warm contemporary interiors using a mix of textural intriguing materials like metal, natural woods, luscious velvets, lacquers and stone. Mmmmmm.

Sweeping views

For friday, let’s have some views. Toshiko Mori Architect designed this New York Hudson Valley retreat for Mary and Sean Kelly of Sean Kelly gallery.


I kind of want to be this You cast-iron sculpture by Antony Gormley’s. Look at those views!


Perfect place to just chill. Poul Kjærholm wicker chaise longue and low table.


A suspended sofa by Poul Kjærholm and the Antony sconce by Serge Mouille are both 1950s. That sconce is nothing but perfection.


Vintage Arne Jacobsen seating with a set of Grand Prix chairs and a Giraffe armchair surrounding a minimalist custom dining table actually set into a polished-concrete floor!



A lovely detail. Love how the bed is made and the gorgeous mix of textiles with the form of the Arne Jacobsen swan chair. Sycamore bed by Mori.


Let’s begin our week with the inspirational Yabu Pushelberg apartment in New York.


These William Katavolos T chairs are a major favorite.



A perfect little corner with a Nanna Ditzel lounge chair and artfully arranged frames.


Simple and light.


A peek into the bedroom.


I am going crazy for this polished brass pendant lamp by Paavo Tynell! It is spectacular against the wood wall.



Have a great day everyone!

POP of red!




Gorgeous black and white photos in wood frames. Beautiful calming room. I am drooling over this silk rug.



These nightstands are just brilliant. Loving the combination with the table lamps.

Art River

It is so hard to find affordable modern art. Art River is one of the rare places where you can actually do so. They carry a handful of amazing artists like Cy Twombly, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Franz Kline among many others. I am currently loving these…



Francesco Clemente, #9


Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pink


Cy Twombly, Three Notes From Salalah


Design Matters Gallery

Last week I headed into a new declaration of gallery, greeted by an enormous dangly red mobile-like art piece that was unmissable on busy West LA Pico Blvd. The second thing I noticed was art, everywhere and design objects, everywhere…and architecture, everywhere. You rarely see all in one. Yet, art consultant, Leonardo Ledesma of Art Seen and architect, Mark Bittoni of bittonidesignstudio, have forged art and design together in their exciting collaboration, designmatters boutique.


The front portion of Bittoni’s studio is dedicated to carefully curated objects accentuated by Ledesma’s Art. Imagine a Josh Jakus felt eggflat perched in front of an Ann Thronycroft work…yeah amazing.  You can literally trip over great design and great art here.


Josh Jakus eggflat.


Ann Thronycroft’s Dreamtime 2. A local Venice artist.


James Verbicky’s Diffuse. I love this one, a must see in person. The mixed media he uses looks like the projection of the curl of a wave.


Stefano Ciannella’s Same Place Same Time


Menu’s black contour plates


Dean Styers’ Barely Legal
