ERIC HUGHES for ELLE DECOR via Mademoiselle Rose
This room was featured in the September 2005 issue of Elle decor. I find it so fascinating how many of the elements in this room, designed at least 6 years ago, are at the height of fashion today. Gold accents? Check! Chevron pattern? Check! Mirrored furniture? Check! Lucite details? Check! The neat book stacks for coffee table decor? Check!
ERIC HUGHES for ELLE DECOR / SPACE CURTAIN
And to those of you who are wondering, the amazing gold artwork is the Space Curtain, designed in the 1070′s by Paco Rabanne. Hope you enjoyed, have a great day! Xox Linda

THE PHENE VIA CROP
I came across this amazing purple room on Pinterest, and immediately fell in love with the wonderful atmosphere and the endless glamour. After a little investigative journalism, I found it to be The Phene restaurant in London.
THE PHENE VIA AN AMERICAN GIRL IN CHELSEA
A beautiful specimen of the sun mirror, layered on top of a floor-to-ceiling mirrored fireplace definitely constitute the focal point of the room. Apart from the gold ceiling, the room is decorated in a monochromatic color scheme of purple. Velvet fabric adds a heaviness and shine that I always find very glamorous. Here’s a tiny slideshow with a few more pictures; enjoy:

I just adore this photo of fashion stylist and TV personality Rachel Zoe lounging in her her gorgeous sparkly dress. If I were to translate this photo into a room, It would be this one:

Grasscloth wallpaper, pops of sunny yellow, interesting patterns and a little bling on the glassware. I adore this room, it’s so… happy?! Do you like it?

When it comes to design, I tend to lean towards the classics. And that’s where Restoration Hardware comes into the picture. “They” have this way of twisting the classics into something new.. and still manages to keep the classic part of it. If you know what I mean? Case in point: the tufted sofa.
But what really caught my eye were these spectacular birdcage chandeliers! Caged pendants and lanterns are nothing new, but actual crystal chandeliers? Amazing! They come in 5 different sizes. I’d have to sell my car to be able to afford the XS one ;-)
Have you noticed RH’s approach to design? It’s all about scale. Super size, symmetry, and the power of many. All done in a neutral color palette with interesting textures and finishes. And I love it!
Last thing to catch my eye was the gorgeous artwork. They are original drawings.
It’s Friday.. let’s just pretend :-) Have a great Weekend!
