Cozy Up for Fall

Posted By Rebecca | Wednesday, October 29, 2014 | Leave a Comment

Fall has arrived and it's time to cozy up in a beautiful, warm bed.  I've been shopping for a lot of bedding for clients lately and I was really happy to find this custom designed line at ABC Carpet - Kerry Cassill.  Fortunately, they have a larger collection online that includes bedding, clothing, accessories, tabletop and more.  The patterns and colors are fun, bright and unique and all stem from Kerry's love for travel and fondness of Indian prints.  As most designers do, Kerry let's the world inspire her so she can create bedding and accessories for everyone to enjoy.  A few of her patterns are below but there's much more to see online.

A Visit to Buckingham Interiors + Design

On a recent visit to Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet up with my fellow Material Girl's blogger Julia at her showroom and design studio. While Julia and I have met up on several occasions (both in LA and at High Point Markets) I had yet to visit her in her base city. Along with our friend Lisa Mende, we spent a morning checking out the fab Buckingham ID showroom followed by brunch at SoHo House in Chicago - and had a great time all of us together!

Color Love: Julia loves orange and I love how this piece creates quite the statement in her showroom, against the backdrop of the white painted brick walls.

Accesorized shelving and shaggy colorful stools define Julia's Modernique style.

Showroom displays include table settings and fun industrial chic stools.

A crazy fun skeletal chair! (And Julia has a cute story about how when the store alarm was once set off, the police dispatched ended up wanting pictures in the chair, that of course, after all was checked out and in the clear!)

Lots of events took place in LA this past week and I am here to share! Along with showroom parties and openings, I had the opportunity to takeover the West Hollywood Design District's Instagram account for "A Day in the Life". It was fun to take part and feature some of my favorite places around town. For a full recap of photos, you can view here.

The WeHo Design District's Instagram account, which will also be featuring other takeovers in anticipation for the upcoming DIEM event.

The Instagram takeover began with my day of coffee and iPad...

...to showing the newly built Restoration Hardware showroom going up on Melrose Avenue, just in time for that evening's grand opening party.

Which catered to a very packed crowd: Celebs, design friends, and pretty much all of West Hollywood was there!

The next evening I attended a much more intimate party. This one at Woven Accents for the "Spark The Imagination" installation invited by my friend Ginna of 27Ground. (Pictured above with Shirley of Shivhon Rugs.)

I also got to check out the newest, latest rug on display in the window at Woven Accents by artist Gregory Siff.

And yet another rug on display at Woven Accents: this one designed by my good friend Christian of Maison21. From the Shapes Collection.

Another highlight this week was attending the Fall luncheon for La Cienega Design Quarter (for a preview of what's to come!).

Enjoyed hanging out with Amanda Malson at the LCDQLA luncheon.

Lastly, the week actually kicked off last weekend with the most amazing party at Snyder Diamond in celebration of their 65th Anniversary!

The Langham, Chicago

Posted By Jill Seidner | Saturday, October 18, 2014 | Leave a Comment

JillSeidner1

On a recent trip to Chicago, I had the opportunity to stay at the newly opened The Langham, an exquisite luxury hotel located at 330 Wabash (home of a Mies van der Rohe designed building). I have been a fan of the architect since my days in design school. The landmark building is located in downtown Chicago adjacent to the river, 52 stories tall, and boasts over 300 guest rooms and suites. The second floor lobby (pictured above) is a testament to simple refined elegance.

The interiors of Travelle, the hotel's restaurant, features a bar and lounge overlooking the river, and a dining room on the opposite side.

The interiors of Travelle, a great nightlife spot, where I spent an evening hanging out with friends for drinks and food.

The hotel room suites are contemporary, yet classic lines, of understated elegance.

The entry features full height closets and a vanity.

JillSeidner12

Sophisticated furnishings, neutral colors, and pattern such as the links in the carpet and bedding create a timeless look.

JillSeidner10

I was in awe of the bar cabinet which features a tilt out for the coffee (happy to find my Nespresso addiction here!), a concealed bar fridge below, and the cabinet and drawers on the sides are stocked with all the hotel amenities you could ever want!

JillSeidner9

The well-appointed bathroom features a wall mounted Geberit toilet, dual Kohler sinks, and Zucchetti bath fittings.

The walk-in shower is completely walled in minimalist stone with both rainhead and detachable shower sprays and a sleek minimal linear shower drain.

JillSeidner15

A seperate WC features a wall-mounted toilet from Geberit. The European, contemporary design of Geberit’s wall-mounted toilet complement the Langham’s existing aesthetic. Many European luxury hotel designers have turned to Geberit for the sleek design and space-saving benefits for decades, and designers in the U.S. are beginning to follow suit.

Thank you to Geberit for the opportunity to experience The Langham.

And had a fun time hanging out at Travelle restaurant at The Langham with LA friend and actor, Declan Joyce.

Back to the Big Apple!

Posted By Julia Buckingham Edelmann | Tuesday, October 07, 2014 | Leave a Comment

I had the extreme pleasure of speaking at the Decoration & Design Building in NYC earlier this year about my design aesthetic Modernique, and I am SO honored and thrilled to returning to the D & D next week!! This time, it's all about FASHION and INTERIOR DESIGN. Two of my fave things. As part of their Fall Market Days, I will be joined by amazing fashion designer Ralph Rucci and Barbara Bundy, VP Education at the Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising for From the Runway to Residence, for a panel discussion exploring the intersection of fashion and interior design.  And who better to moderate than Mieke ten Have, Home Editor at Vogue magazine.

Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 11.22.59 AMFashion and interior design always go hand in hand, inspiring and forming each other, and creating great synergy. Whether it is color, patterns, textures, materials…this list could go on and on…fashion and interior designers often share the same fabulous taste in style-and sometimes blurring the lines between the two!

I noticed several similarities in trends from Ralph's latest fashion show and one of my favorite pillow vendors, Pyar & Co….

Designer Proenza Schouler was right on target with Pyar's new fringed pillow as well!

photo 3

I do LOVE me some Louboutin as well….These fab heels go right along with the fabric I chose to reupholster these antique french gilded chairs in my Chicago Showroom

Of course I can't resist a pop of hot pink in any space! Do ya like the pink ottoman in a recent North Shore project of mine? Kind of crushing on those shoes too….

photo 2 copy 8

Fur is a huge trend in both fashion and design….I sported some in a recent project in the entryway for some whimsy + surprise.

photo copy 2

And the same similar vibrant colors can often be seen both in the rooms that I design and the runway!

photo copy 5

And last, but certainly not least…in one of my latest projects were these ah-mazing fringed chairs from Bradley! I cannot even tell you how excited I am for my Fringe Lanvin bag this season :)

I can't wait to talk more fashion and interior design with my esteemed cohorts at the D & D on Thursday, Oct 16 at noon.

Space is limited and reserving a seat a huge plus. For more information, visit the D & D here. Hope to see y'all there!

Then up next, High Point Market. It's going to be a whirlwind October fer sure.

XX, Julia
