Modern Long Island

Have you seen this incredible house designed by Kelly Behun? It’s a little too big as a weekend house for me but I am loving the openness and views. Kelly was a protégé of Philippe Starck and also did Ivanka Trump’s Manhattan apartment.

One of my fav sofas, the extra wall by Living Divani. The rope stool and blue chair are by Christian Astuguevieille. The rugs are custom African raffia ceremonial cloths.

This is my favorite room of the house. Loving the the rope textures mixed with the walnut woods and vintage metal and wicker light fixture. The rope chair is the Oggetti cup chair and the rugs are Moroccan. Those amazingly fabulous hand stools are from West Palm Beach.

The French limestone tub goes on forever extending through the window…very cool! I think I need this furry stool by Marc Bankowsky.

A gorgeous shingle clad home in the Hamptons by Christoff:Finio Architecture.

Here we have a mid-century Persian kilim and the TG-10 dining chairs designed by Bill Katavolos. I really like the mix of these two.

A great perch of an office with an Arne Jacobsen pendant light from Louis Poulsen Lighting and a golden Moroccan kilim.



A BDDW cabinet.


Feeling Cozy

This space is really inspiring me from the romantic dark billowy drapes, to the wood walls, the white oak floors, to the mouldings on the ceiling.

This closet is so fabulous. I think this looong bench makes it!



A few details

A few details to start off the week. I will always be a sap for a warm wood wall. Especially in a bedroom.

Christian Liaigre console and Ingo Maurer light fixture. Lovely mouldings around the arch.


Motu Tane

Motu Tane is a private island in French Polynesia. It is still so hot here in London, that I am going to imagine being on this tropical island enjoying the heat instead of in central London not enjoying the sticky icky heat. I’m not complaining or anything. The best part is that it is designed by Christian Liaigre. You can rent the private island for $40,000 a night. Enjoy!


motu tane

Functional use of dark woods to minimize the bright sun. The red chair gives a POP and some energy to the room. The natural abaca rugs add texture. Perfectly complimentary palate of materials.

This might be my favorite spot. I love the brightly colored pillows with the dancing fire in front. I am OBSESSED with Christian Liaigre furniture. This stool is crafted and conceived to fit right into the environment. I would like one for myself!

Hello Monday

I’m really in love with this space. It feels very clean and open with expert detailing. I would imagine this home is in Belgium, you?


tvdv 2

love how the door reaches all the way to the ceiling, not the mention how lovely the light drapes over the hallway.


tvdv 3

i also like how the ceiling is not punctuated with recessed cans everywhere…there is this one simple recessed fixture. the drapes reach the ceiling, adding height to the space.


tvdv 4

again, this door detail is so minimal.


tvdv 5

these drapes are so romantic in how they puddle to the floor, such a nice juxtaposition to the quiet feeling of the space.


tvdv 6

okay, this vanity is gorgeous…but where do you put the hairdryer??

hans wegner chairs.

wood children’s toys are my favorite!



While this isn’t modern, I am really attracted to these slatted doors. And this gorgeous muted sage color.

A Royal Loo

I always love seeing interesting ways lighting is being used. Especially when it is hiding but yet accentuating something. A room just glows…I love how the light is a continuous vertical element peeking out from underneath this intensely gorgeous marble. I could be happy with the space without the chandelier and gilt mirror but love how the marble just wraps itself up from the floor to the wall.



Recessed Handrail

I’ve had a special request, what do you do when you have super modern floating stair treads and need something unobtrusive to hold on to! I love this recessed handrail detail. It’s minimal and functional.




I am in love

Rees Roberts + Partners are absolute perfection. I love everything they do. I am obsessed.


The texture on the fireplace is out of this world. The color palate is soothing and simple, creamy white walls, bleached wood, soft blues, sandy linens. David Weeks chandelier.



B&B italia chairs. Taraxacum light fixture. Smooth fabric walls….so sooooooft.




I could die in this kitchen. The view…the materials, the cabinetry!


David Weeks light fixture. It’s all so simple but so elegant.


Another David Weeks light fixture and sconces. B&B italia bed…one of my favorites, but you need a ceiling like this! A never ending looooooong clean thin window seat.



This sculptural light fixture is called the 21.50. It is stunning!
