Leather beds, ahh, to think of Richard Gere in an Officer and a Gentleman! Or Ironman and Robert Downey Jr.! Who would throw them out of those leather beds for eating crackers!
Well my friends, leather beds are back and very much in vogue even for single women and most of all couples! Bedrooms are once again taking a bit of a turn towards masculine after having been a very feminine style for a long time.
I personally love designing using leather beds as they can add that perfect juxtaposition to a room that is on its way to being more feminine! I am working on an apartment in the city, for a single woman, who loves the idea of a feminine bedroom, but, wants that touch of masculinity. I think it is a great application as it is a powerful statement and a confident one!
Take a look at some of the images and I hope if you are thinking about re-decorating your bedroom that you consider working in a leather bed!
Have a great day!
Thanks to Editor At Large for an amazing interview! So much fun!! Enjoy!
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!!
When I was at the NYDC a couple of weeks ago for the TRADhome top Twenty party! and while enjoying over 700 peoples company! I had the opportunity to brose a bit while enjoying cocktails and low and behold found the most incredible pair of Alessandro Albrizzi stools!
I love Albrizzi and have had the pleasure of using many of his pieces! Not to mention one of my favorite desks! I thought I should let you all in on his work as everyone has seen his pieces and I thought it would be fun to tell a bit about him and his career!
Albrizzi had many shops all over the world. With panache and sophistication he translated the spirit of swinging London into a line of furniture and objects like a fabulous lucite ice bucket, that i had to have!! Albrizzi worked with hand-crafted with precision using acrylic, glass, stainless stell, aluminum and wood. His was an instant cult following as his furniture fits into truly any style of interiors. I have used his pieces in traditional homes and modern homes!
Enjoy his work and look for his pieces they are highly collectible!
To say that the past couple of weeks has been amazing would be a complete understatement!
I had a very fun interview with Tory Mallot from EDITOR AT LARGE see them on facebook, look up the tabletop interview!
Last week was so incredible. To be one of twenty top firms selected by Traditional Home Magazine and then to have had a 16 page feature in TRADhome-Lonny
The newest of the online shelter magazines, which if you haven’t looked at you will fall in love with. this magazine is so different from the others as it is much more Interior Design for the upscale hip clientele. We are featured on page 216 so please do take a look!
Traditional Home was so wonderful for hosting these top twenty for a day filled with art galleries in Chelsea to a fabulous lunch at Park on Tenth Ave. I had the pleasure of sitting with Anne Maine the editor at Traditional Home
The party that evening was amazing and attended by 700 people at the 1st dibs space at the NYDC
This week! Well was monumental as I finished the room at Kips Bay in time for the opening party Thursday evening which was black tie and glorious! the party was attended by the top editors from Margaret Russell from AD to Newell Turner from House Beautiful, you name it!
We were guests that evening of the Benjamin Moore company and had the honor of sitting at their table!
Friday had an amazing interview with The New York Times, Penelope Green, who loved my space, and then I once again started to breathe!
