Cute 1920's Beverly Hills Apartment

Today we welcome the work of Los Angeles Interior Designer Caitlin Murray! We’re happy to announce she’s just recently launched her own interior design business. She sure is rocking it out in style. You can visit her on her website here and catch a glimpse of her beautiful face! Check out this project below…The apartment is quaint, yet engaging, small, yet fascinating. We can tell how much fun she had in creating this Beverly Hills apartment because we felt the fun literally popping out of the screen! So much…that we had to share with you.

This apartment was built in the late 1920’s and like many of that era’s buildings — especially in Beverly Hills where it’s located — the architecture was infused with Art Deco elements. Stair-step motifs and ornate details dominate the space along with some of the original hardwood oak flooring and gorgeous black and lavender tile. Art Deco was a fabulous age in design because of the decorative sense of style and whimsical aesthetic. It was a very feminine themed movement that first began in Paris, so I wanted to celebrate those inherent qualities instead of design against them. On top of that, when I stood in the apartment for the first time, it had an undeniable feeling of a place inhabited by a Hollywood starlet from days gone by that coincided with a vintage Parisian vibe. I just took it from there.

The color scheme in the bedroom started with a bold color I was dying to try on the walls – Benjamin Moore’s “Electric Blue.” Then I found this great peacock duvet cover from DwellStudio, which is mustard yellow with blue, orange and brown accents. I added fun orange elements because blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, so they complement each other and look amazing together. Finally, I threw in some gold and white that really popped against the paint and also toned down the bright hues.

The breakfast room is my favorite. I wanted to go all out girly, so I painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s “Pink Begonia” and hung a crystal chandelier that was created by a well-known designer in the 40’s/50’s who had movie star clientele. I added vintage accessories and plants along with a table and chairs that fit perfectly with the black and white scheme in the kitchen. It started as a beige box and all of the old and new elements came together rather perfectly.

Beautiful minds can take something completely ordinary and see it in an altogether different light. Caitlin does this with this so well with this apartment. Thank you Caitlin for sharing!

A Maine-Style Cape For Today's Lifestyle

Architect Pamela Hedden is quite a residential architect who has overcome HUGE obstacles. By that we mean, recovering from a stroke paralyzing half of her body and decommissioning her from her architectural career for quite some time. For a decade Pamela Hedden designed dream homes for high-end clients until her world fell apart. Pamela suffered a stroke caused by an undetected birth defect. Subsequently, She went through extensive rehab to learn how to walk, talk, read, and draw again. She even lost some of her vision and half of her body remains paralyzed to this day. She even trained her left hand to draw as a substitute for her right. Even so, she took on new projects. She said that determination to do what she loves helped her overcome her physical limitation.

What inspires us is that she chose not to have too many pity parties for herself. For most, this might have destroyed their architectural career as well as their will, but for Pamela the incident has only propelled her career forward. She now creates even more beautiful designs than ever before as her portfolio continues to bulge with high-end work. It is not in many that we see this kind of drive for design, or to carry on dreams. She loves having a blank piece of paper, putting a house on it and making a dream come true for clients.

See her creation of this beautiful unassuming cape below. It sits on a wooded lot with a gently sloping trail down to a lake in Central Maine. The end result is a lovely, comfortable dream home. In the words of Pamela, “There are some homes that draw you in and hold you hard like a spell. Homes that beg to be lived in, photographed, and admired, as though you had always belonged. This is precisely the feeling I design into homes. ” Kudos to you Pamela! Your passion is inspiring.

The main floor has a very open feel with a porch wrapping around the entire back. The clients believe that Maine people don’t really use the front door, so they utilized this ‘area’ for a bath and installed a nicer window to compliment the exterior.

The three floor garage has a workshop below, a two car garage on the main level and a future apartment on the 2nd floor

Upstairs is the master suite with an outdoor deck and there are two other bedrooms with a full back in the walk-out basement.

Spice of Life: Neo-Transitional Style

Everything about Delaware Interior Designer Shelley Rodner and her interior design studio is custom…from initial design ideas to installation.  In fact, she works to “Make the world more beautiful, one room at a time.” Her knowledge of art and history have helped her discover contemporary, neo-transitional and eclectic styles even further as she uses those styles to impact the living spaces of clients around her, to their liking. Hot off the press are some Neo-Transitional inspirations below! Not to get into a style drift, but as for the Neo-Transitional style itself, we think it’s a perfect solution for blending inward interiors with outward European architectural influences that are so common in New England. Shelley’s been gracious enough to share several of her design projects with us on Design Shuffle and this is one of them! Enjoy.

Bright and Modern Town Home in Dallas

When we chanced upon the work of Top Drawer Interiors the other day…Doug Salzman and his team kindly came aboard and uploaded not only one but six fabulously diverse albums! We were pretty much impressed with the work of this Dallas interior design studio when we saw their before shots and compared them with the afters…see their before pictures here. What’s so unique about Top Drawers is that they don’t just rock at interior design, but they also specialize in exquisite hand-blow art glass and import their own line of furniture, the Doug Salzman collection, from Peru! Fantastic.

See below where a boxy, vanilla, totally barren urban town home is brought to life with colorful accents, rich textures and modern design…all ingredients to create a successfully inviting and up-to-date haven for its owners. Enjoy!

Opulent, simple, and elegant is what they are going for…see if the below transitional designs live up to the lovely vocabulary of their creations.

The penthouse is located on the 26th and 27th floor of an exclusive condominium in Toronto. The exciting challenge laid within their clients’ wishes…to have traditional and modern in their design.

As you can see the result is a satisfyingly sophisticated balance of both conglomerated with the injection of glamour Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consultants Inc. likes to include in every project.

Modern From a Historic Printer's Row Loft's Point of View in Chicago

LNM Interiors is an upbeat Chicago-based residential interior design firm that specializes in new construction, whole home renovations, kitchen and bath renovations….they excel in the softer side of interiors and have built their reputation on creating “sophisticated, timeless and modern” interiors.  Their motto is “Live. Naturally. Modern”. Lisa Natale is the principal behind LNM Interiors and has always had a love for design and the fashion industry. This passion has greatly influenced her modern interior designs with her wide usage of bold graphic patterns. She loves helping clients explore their dreams.  Below you will see LNM Interiors’ “live naturally modern” motto shining through in this fabulous historic Printer’s Row loft below…

When the firm acquired the loft project in Chicago’s historic Printer’s Row neighborhood, the client, a Chicago-based realtor, had two main objectives for the space: to maintain the historic and industrial feel of the building that was once home to a printing warehouse in the early 1900’s, and then to update the space into
something more timeless and modern.


The overall concept for the loft was to keep the architectural elements crisp and bold as a means to emphasize a more modern living space.  LNM achieved this by selecting bright white quartz countertops, white subway tiles, and accents of white leather furnishings, while contrasting these elements with ebony floors, dark mahogany cabinetry and a dark grey moiré wallpaper in the master bath. As for maintaining the history of the building, the color palette was a key element.  LNM used light greys and charcoal blues with a chartreuse accent color for an added edge. All of this, a modern interpretation of the color palette used in the early 1900’s while taking it to a more current and fresh living space. In order to connect all of the spaces in this open floor plan loft, this color palette was mimicked throughout the entire one bedroom.

Chicago-based designer strongly believes that the home can and should be the ultimate reflection of an individual’s personality. For this reason, building a relationship with her clients is paramount to understanding how a space will ultimately unfold. LNM is dedicated to making clients feel comfortable in their homes and allowing their personalities to shine through in their interior spaces.
