MODERN ART DECO

Hey Everyone....I wanted to share with you a house that is OVER the TOP!!!  But it's still pretty amazing.  How would I describe this house??  Well................To me it sort of Art Deco meets Hollywood Glamour meets California mid 80's.........a mouthful for sure.  The reason I wanted to share it is that it is unlike anything I have seen before.  It is over the top, it is glamorous, it is outrageous but still controlled.  Yet there are moments of quiet.  So without further ado...Enjoy:























Now as you know I am a nautical, cottagey kinda girl.  That's my style.  But I just had to share this one with you all.  It is so out the realm of most of us out there.  For me....is it too much....well for me anyways.  However, there are some really pretty pieces and rooms in here that I can still be inspired by.  I love the kitchen...all that white.  That great farm sink and faucet.  Gorgeous cabinetry.  Stunning Murano White glass Chandeliers.  And of course the classic black and white tiled floor.  This kitchen would not be out of place in many homes.  It is loaded to the gills but it still reads as very pretty and very functional.  I will say that even though this home is very glamorous and isn't everybody's cup of tea......there is still a comfortableness about it.  All the fabrics are comfortable looking, as are all the pillows.  There is a lot of Velvets used throughout that lend a comfort to an otherwise very glamorous space.  That being said I don't think that I need quite so much furniture or an audience in my Master Bath!! And the palette is quite neutral- Black, white and Taupe.  This is a classic that never goes out of style.

This amazing home was designed by Jeff Andrews.  He is definitely all about glamour!  You should check out his other projects.  You can see that Jeff is a big fan of texture.....Grass Cloth, Velvet.....There is such a layeredness to his projects....is that a word??  Layeredness...........that is how I see it when I look at his work.  There is definite glamour....yet the style of furnishings and the type of fabrics used set a comfort level in a room that may feel off limits if other fabrics were used in it's place.  Velvet beckons one to sit and be comfortable.  And let me tell you it wears like Iron.  There is nothing delicate about that workhorse.
And since he uses tones found in Nature, nothing feels too frenetic.  The palettes he uses are very calm and soothing-even with all the glamour he tries to convey.  I think I have a new design crush!!  I feel that if I had the money to do so, I would want to try to incorporate some of his style of design. I adore the sophisticatedness  of it, yet, love the comfort as well.

Hope you enjoyed and got just a little inspiration from this amazing and over the top Residence.

Have a great day everyone.
