Gorgeous Sunroom

May 28, 2012 in Luxurious, Porch/Sunroom, Romantic / Country / Cottage, Soft and Light, White

MELANIE TURNER INTERIORS

I just love how Melanie Turner works high end elements like curvy tables, tailored chairs and gold finishes into a more casual frame. It’s like a luxurious take on shabby chic? Love it!

Most of you have probably seen the beautiful home of Lisa Martensen already, but as I always say; revisiting a beautiful space never hurts ;)

Lisa is one half of the extremely talented design duo Martensen Jones. According to an interview she did with D Magazine, Lisa is quite the collector. That probably helps to explain her very interesting home. It’s full of beautiful objects she has collected from around the world, high end mixed with thrifts store gems. It’s layered and interesting, and edited to perfection.

Lisa confesses to be a huge fan of anything plaster. Just look at that marvelous stone table. I also adore the color palette in this dining room, kind of an understated boldness.

Even though most of the walls in her family room are covered in windows, Lisa still manages to display artwork by placing them in little easles.

Lisa sure knows how to decorate her bookcase, here displaying her books along with her collectibles. If you missed it, you can get a few tips on how to decorate your bookcase here ;)

Lisa’s bedroom is so beautiful and glamorous. Yet another proof that gray and beige can be mixed (see first proof here).

I love detail shots like these, don’t you? So much inspiration in the details.

Lisa’s bathroom is exceptionally beautiful, with cream white walls and marble counter tops and hexagonal tiles (which I professed my love for in this earlier post).

The sconces screams luxury. They are designed by Eric Cohler, we covered them earlier here ;)

I can’t help thinking of Pottery Barn’s Bevel Mirror when I see Lisa’s beautiful vanity. Do you think it’s the same one?

As a wonderful surprise in her light and airy home, Lisa went wild with her powder room. I just love a bold powder room!!

The wallpaper she used is called Pauline and is available at Studio Printworks in many color options.

Last but not least, daughter India’s bedroom. Her walls are hand painted muralist Jerrod Foote. That is one lucky girl!

Love how Lisa incorporated these ceramic birds into the mural.

I’ve noticed the Jacqui Console and Desk popping up in everywhere lately. I particularly loved it in Meg Braff’s home office also.

Hope you enjoyed this little house tour, and be sure to check out D Magazine to read the great interview they did with Lisa, for more details!

Eye Candy by Tobi Fairley

October 14, 2010 in Bedroom, Beige, Bright, Chic, Hottest Designers, Orange, Porch/Sunroom, Turquoise

Back to business! I promised you something snazy didn’t I? Well, here’s some colorful eye candy designed by the one and only Tobi Fairley and featured in Traditional Home:

*

Tobi designed this bedroom for an energy-efficient charity showhouse using recycled furnishings, organic fabrics, and low-VOC paints. Have you noticed how Tobi frequently use large scale frames in her designs? Usually with colorful seashell prints and hung in an orderly fashion. It’s like her m-o and I love it!

*

The color palette of turquoise and orange is divine! Nothing beats two “happy colors” in one room!

*

This is the sunroom. I love how Tobi stuck to the same basic color palette of the bedroom, adding some deeper shades.

*

And what do we have directly opposite of the seating area? A soft drink buffet of cause! Wouldn’t you just love to snuggle up in that daybed with a good book and a refreshing beverage? I know I would!

*

As usual, head over to Traditional Home’s blog to see the rest of these rooms and the complete source list! And while you’re at it, check out Tobi’s wonderful blog for more exclusive pictures, including before and afters!
