These two rooms have great elements that make small spaces look chic, beautiful and bigger as well. In the top room, by making an opening in the wall and using it as a fireplace makes the room flow. By adding pieces with shining surfaces, such as the chandelier, a steel table lamp and a mirrored side table, the light reflects across the room. In the bottom picture the island with enough working space brings functionality to the kitchen. Again, the high gloss lacquered cabinets and the stainless steel backsplash are light and movement reflectors as well.

Lerebours Antiques just opened a gorgeous flagship store on 60th St on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It carries top of the line unique pieces from traditional classic to modern and eclectic ones. Two weeks ago I was working together with Cathy Lerebours, owner, styling it for a photo shoot section to be featured in a very important Home Decor Magazine. Cathy has great taste and eye so she had a very clear idea of what she wanted to project in these pictures. It was all about the pieces so we decided not to clutter with a lot of props. Instead we focused on letting the antiques stand out. These are some of the pictures of the sets we put together.
I fell madly in love with a series of four fashion illustrations by Kostantine Kakanias (one pictured above). As you can see with fantastic pieces like these there is not much that needs to be done to make them look beautiful, they style themselves just with their own beauty.
Good Morning, I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. As I promised last week I have some photos of my current project in the upper west side. My client is a very traditional lady with exquisite taste. The first picture is part of the dining room where I selected a Phillip Jeffries Acapulco Sand grasscloth wallpaper to make it cozy and intimate. The linen curtain fabric I picked, second picture, has the exact color of the wallpaper, with beautiful flowers in different shades of pinks,lilacs, yellows and greens.
current project. If things go according to plan (no unexpected surprises) I'll have some photos for you on Monday. Have a fun-fun -fun summer weekend!
