Last night I came across this gorgeous living room on Veranda.com, and (as per usual) fell madly in love. As I got to reading the interview accompanying the beautiful images, I quickly realized it belonged to the one and only Jennifer Lopez. How interesting!

Jennifer’s home is designed by Michelle Workman, and now I have yet another designer crush. Isn’t this living room amazing? Michelle based the entire home on a color palette of grays subtly infused with color.

I would definitely say this is a glamorous home. So what makes it so glamorous? I believe it starts with the subtle color scheme, brought to life through luxurious velvet and silk fabrics and contrasted with curvy black details and shiny metals. Not to mention the classic furniture with modern twists, and the huge Art Deco influence.

A simple but beautiful vignette in the background. Fresh cut pink flowers are to be found throughout the entire house.

This little brass top hat-and-cane table actually turned out to be a champagne cooler. How fun is that?

Now onto Jennifer’s drop dead gorgeous dining room. Again we see the strong influence of Art Deco in the glass console table and the beautiful powder pink wallpaper.

Tufted velvet dining chairs with nailhead trim? Yes please!

Art Deco inspired Tulip Damask wallpaper by Cole & Son. The gold detail really makes this wallpaper come to life, don’t you think?

Blue is the choice color for the kitchen as well. I’d love to get a closer look at the tiles, they look so shiny and pretty. I’m guessing they are shell tiles?

This dining area is just too gorgeous for words. Love everything about it. So much lovely detail, and so perfectly combined.

Another beautiful seating area. The glam factor is upped with shiny chrome details paired with glass surfaces and sleek white furniture.

Now this is what I would call a gorgeous bedroom. Light, pretty and feminine. I’d love to use this BM Home Sweet Home paint color somewhere.

See how perfectly the wall color is picked from the stonework on the fireplace? Not that is how it’s done right!

This is the last picture, I swear!  Hope you enjoyed another celebrity home tour, although it was the design itself which attracted me to these images, not the owner ;)

The Purple Wallpaper Saga

May 30, 2010 in Art deco, Home office, Hottest Designers, Purple, Wallpaper / Tiles / Murals

Sooo, I was peeking into photographer Michal Venera’s incredible online portfolio and came across this:

*

modern home office purple lilac blue and green with purple curtains and blue lily wallpaper

That wallpaper haunts me (in a really good way) and should probably be on my top 10 design inspiration list. I’ve featured this room before, it is designed by Caitlin Moran.

Also, actress Molly Sims has this wallpaper in her home office which was designed by Kishani Perera, which also used it in this home office (it might be Molly’s, I’m not sure).

So many links, so little time =)

Now that all the loose ends are tied neatly together, I’m just missing one thing: Where can I get that wallpaper??? Anyone know? And what is it with this wallpaper that makes it end up in home offices? I have a feeling this is a wallpaper that you either love love love or hate hate hate. Which side are you on?

UPDATE: Kelly of Design Ties whipped up the wallpaper source in a second, it is available at Cole and Son! Thank you again Kelly!!
