A Buckinghamshire Country Retreat by Staffan Tollgard Design Group

This weeks getaway takes us to Buckinghamshire in south east England. This county of England is known for its open countryside, its stunning views of nature, and various historic houses still used as private homes. With the hustle and bustle of daily life we were taken aback by the tranquility of this country style home designed by UK based Staffan Tollgard Design Group. It seems we aren’t the only ones wishing to get away, musicians such as Andrew Fletcher from Depeche Mode, Noel Gallagher of Oasis, and Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, have all owned homes in this beautiful county.

While a very traditional British facade on the outside, the inside is filled with wanderlust.

Strong Asian influences can be seen in both art and statues throughout the home.

The combination of blue and white jars and accessories, worldly wooden furniture, and traditional curtains and upholstery, create quite the living room area.

Mid Century Chinese Chinoiserie can be found throughout the home, and make a big impression in the master bedroom.

Talk about a desk with a view! Splashes of red, and the intricate details carved into this desk are spectacular.

This stately domed hallway offers a view of the idyllic  British countryside.

A Hidden Villa in the Heart of Malibu

Malibu, California is filled with sandy beaches, celebrity homes, and a whole lot of surfing! Only an hour away from the bustling city of Los Angeles, this affluent Beach city is known to have their fair share of grandiose homes, but we have neverseen a secluded Mediterranean paradise like this one. The creative mastermind behind this home is Robert Shapiro who is known famously as an arts philanthropist, art collector, and antiquarian. Join us as we tour Design Shuffle’s Getaway of the week.

 Hand plastered walls, a muted color palette, and stone floors add a subtle Mediterranean feel to this elegant living room.

One of the most amazing views we have seen in a while, this 20 foot wall is made almost entirely out of windows.

Moroccan Architectural details along with the long center mosaic transport you halfway around the globe.

This Turkish throw adds a subtle pop of color, and is without a doubt the center of attention in this master bedroom.

Comfy seating and a view to the immaculate garden, this is quite the office!

Long arches and lush gardens remind us of a Mediterranean castle.

This sofa had to be custom built to fit the space, and well worth it. We would never leave this cute little nook!

A private entrance to a private beach, what more could you ask for.

Nina Garcia's Stylish Manhattan Abode

You might have heard about Nina Garcia, fashion director of Marie Claire, judge on a tiny little show called Project Runway, and an international style icon. We knew that her impeccable sense of fashion would translate beautifully into a home, and we were not disappointing. Architectural Digest was able to capture Nina Garcias’ and Carlos Aparacio’s finished project and we can’t wait to share it with all of you as well. Filled with soft relaxing shades infused with personality, this home is truly a show-stopper.

Pale blue hues add a sense of tranquility to this mid century modern living room, while the modern artwork infuses just the right amount of chaos.

Luxurious raw silk sweeping curtains adorn the large windows. The beige furniture works great against the blue walls.

This amazing Swedish rug  is as unique as Nina herself, and was sent all the way from Milan. Nina states in her interview to AD that she enjoys adding color with rugs since she normally embraces neutral palettes.

Grey cashmere curtains, sculptures, a tufted headboard, create quite the impressive master bedroom.

Filled with the most amazing brands and styles, Nina’s closet is her style sanctuary.

White marbled floors and counter tops, and bold yellow flowers, add dimension to this otherwise white washed room.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! For daily inspiration like us on Facebook!

Bold and Bright Art in Interior Design

Selecting art for every room in your house,or interior design projects,has become an art form in and of itself. One of the biggest trends we have been exposed to  is adding bold artwork that pushes the boundaries, and we love it! Gone is the traditional framing and canvas only art; the art in the following rooms is quite exciting and refreshing. Join us as we tour the following six rooms as well as some tips and tricks on how to add bold artwork to your home or designs.

With so much to look at in this room the symmetrical, wildly colorful, and abstract artwork is still the center of attention.

Bold artwork can also mean a striking continuous print in black and white, color isn’t always necessary to make a statement.

A giant mirror splattered strategically in paint is an example of a fun, new, and non traditional medium.

Framed prints are a cheap and easy way of updating your space, find them at your local flea markets, or even at your local Museum’s shop.

A wide array of frames and art creates an eclectic room that still continues to feel put together. Remember to select your arrangement before placing the nails.

Small artwork can be used as a stylish table top accessory as well. Choose colors that represent your color scheme, or mood. If you want to DIY but your aren’t artistically inclined, stick to simple shapes and lines.

Interior Design Travel Spotlight: Venetian Decor

Venice, situated in Northeast Italy, is composed of a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges.  New York Times described Venice as “undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man”, and the Times described it as being one of the most romantic cities in Europe.

The regal Aman Canal Grande Resort is very representative of the Venetian culture and feel of this historical city. The actual resort is situated in a 16th century palazzo (how awesome is that) commissioned by the Coccina family of Bergamo. Join us for a small tour filled with romantic architecture, relaxing gondola rides, and stately accommodations.

Lunch with a view – contemporary seating is juxtaposed by the elaborately detailed walls and balcony.  Something to keep in mind: traditional Venetian style furniture have curved lines as opposed to clean lines

Another common feature of Venetian interior design is  Celestial themes, like this magnificently carved ceiling depicting angels and clouds.

Venetian decor is not complete without the use of gold, silver, or metallics. Most of the time this includes gilded chandeliers and gold leaf crown molding.
