Fashion and Interior Design quote by MieleThis quote by fashion designer Carlos Miele is very dear to me. His no-boundaries outlook on fashion is similar to how I design spaces. My philosophy of Modern-ique® , integrating antiques and artifacts with modern design, is just that. I truly believe that success can often come from the most unexpected pairings both in fashion and decor! My career-beginning with my Fashion Merchandising degree from the University of Arizona brought me to work for Neiman Marcus and now I have brought that “fashion passion” alive within my  interior design firm.

So imagine my excitement when I was invited to participate in the Oct. 8 Fashion + Design #Oliohop. OlioHops are blog hops organized by Olioboard. Olioboard is a new tool in “social commerce.” It allows you to  create interior design moodboards and even 2D and 3D room designs using real products clipped from your favorite websites.

I will show you two examples of how to bring together fashion and decor, built with the help of Olioboard. And I will be back on this topic throughout October as I head to High Point Market later this week. I am extremely excited about my role in this year’s High Point Market as a Style Spotter — the entire market will be focused on fashion and home decor!

Fashion trends, materials and colors affect home decor in a big way. A few weeks back I wrote a post about interior color predictions for fall/winter, many of these being based on fashion color trends. This time I wanted to do a deeper dive into the fashion trends that will have a big impact on the furniture and decor design we will see in everyone’s homes tres soon.

The Plaid Fad

Plaid isn’t just for your great-grandmother’s pillows or just for lodge decor anymore (although, these both evoke fond and warm memories that make us reach out toward it).  Bold and contemporary plaid pieces in a variety of colors are a fashion statement and must-have wardrobe items. Who else just LOVES the visual impact of the plaid plates on the wall (upper right within the images)? So chic! And just check out that swatch of sassy aqua and brown, such a well-balanced and unique palette, a defining characteristic of Kirkby fabrics (part of the The Romo Group). That’s just one of the fabulous fabrics I’m using in my DIFFA Dining by Design room where I am aligning with Romo next month here in Chicago. Plaid is going to be center-stage in my dining space!

All That Glitters is Gold

Metallics have been all the fashion rage these past few years but we’re now starting to see that same trend in home decor. I love adding hints of gold touches especially to lighting pieces, such as a gorgeous antique chandelier as well as accessory accents like plush Pyar & Co. pillows (featured on the bottom right). The owner of Pyar , Paula Queen, is one of my favorite design clients – big design things happening that I will share soon- and an entrepreneur mixing Indian textiles within a plethora of exquisite pillows. The pieces reflect the philosophy of Pyar, pieces that tell stories, “Pure love. Pure luxury.”

The photo in the middle is from one of my favorite design projects. The whimsical gold details on both the chandelier and table make the room feel warm and royal. Another of my favorite client dining rooms shown upper right and the powder room of another project, seen below, are just a few recent examples of how to use gold accents in the home.

In your opinion, what are some fashion trends that you expect will make it’s mark in home decor? Follow me as I head out to High Point Market this Saturday to see just what is the hottest in home design. As a Market Style Spotter you will be able to see just what I view as this season’s top picks for your own homes. Be sure to follow my Pinterest board for all the delicious details. And I certainly will be “spotting” for my interior design clients -they are counting on me!

Leave your comments below and share your thoughts with all of our Material Girls. I hope you’ve been inspired to create some of your very own dreamy moodboards on Olioboard.

Going Bold

And who says that two bold trends can’t mesh together into one fabulous room? ;) Again, please hop on over to these other fabulous design blogs for our Fashion + Decor #Oliohop! Get all the details on the Oliohop Facebook page. Thanks and Happy #OlioHop-ing!

I’ve run into several people lately that have asked about my role in this year’s High Point Market. I am so psyched and honored to have been given such a fun role in the show so I wanted to write a quick post discussing High Point, my role as a Style Spotter and also some of the benefits for going!

So… what is High Point?
The High Point Market is the world’s largest furnishings industry trade show that happens every six months. With over 100 million square feet of show-space, this event attracts over 75,000 attendees at each market with 100+ countries representing more than 2,000 exhibitors. All in all, it’s a huge show with just an amazing group of people. (And have I mentioned the parties?!)

What is a Style Spotter?
As mentioned earlier, I am over the moon that I have been asked by the HP Market to be a Style Spotter during the festivities.  I will be among eight other special somebodies (I’ve highlighted three here in my last post) and I have been given the honor of showcasing my favorite products and top trends at the Market. To see what I discover during the Market (October 13-18) make sure you are following my High Point Market board on Pinterest! The idea behind it is simple, yet brilliant. Pinterest is a website that allows users to organize and share visual content on virtual boards. Everything that I come across during my High Point journey will be captured and will be visible on my dedicated board. The best part is that as an Internet user from home, you have total access to everything I see and love- and you can be involved too!

How to Vote:
One of the fun parts about being a Style Spotter is there’s some friendly competition. If you like what you see on Pinterest, like it and repin! Each time you “like” a pin it’s considered 1 point and when you “repin” it’s 2 points. These points add up, so to show your support vote for your favorite designs/designers like and repin often! The winning Style Spotter is chosen by who has the most points!

One Last Note For STUDENTS:
I could not stress enough how important it is to get in the game while you’re young and still in school. We were all where you are today and personally, I love meeting and mentoring young aspiring designers! You keep me young and greatly remind me of myself at your age. If you have the time and resources, you should seriously consider attending High Point Market this year. And guess what? It’s FREE ADMISSION. In order to apply for a student pass, you must be enrolled in as college/university degree program with a course of study that is relative to home furnishings and students may only attend the last three days of Market. You must request a pass by having your program professor email a request to registration@highpointmarket.org and it must be on letterhead. The deadline is October 1, 2012. I hope to see some fresh faces this year at High Point- please find me if you attend! :)

Again, I am so excited to be a Style Spotter this year at the High Point Market. Don’t forget to follow my Pinterest board and share your favorite pins! See you there (virtually or literally!)

As some of you may already know, I was selected to be a Style Spotter at High Point Market this fall. I am extremely excited to be involved with such a fantastic and talented group of people. Plus, I just love the energy and enthusiasm (+ the AWESOME parties) that surrounds this cutting edge home furnishings market.

I had an idea…and I decided to reach out to some of the other trend setters and to ask them a few questions to get them know them a bit better. That being said, this post is dedicated to highlighting three of the special creative minds that are “Style Spotters” alongside moi. I hope you all enjoy meeting them as much as I did! Don’t forget to stop on by my Pinterest board during the High Point Market-October 13-18 to see what I’ve discovered as the hottest happenings of the design year! P.S. I absolutely ADORE Currey & Co and Bethanne as well :)

Meet Style Spotter, Jason Oliver Nixon:

Jason, partner of Madcap Cottage, creates designs that reflect a respect for tradition- but with a punch of color and playful patterns. Scrolling through his work and you can see just that! And his personality is to match. After all, he states that he’s all about the ‘F’ words, “frisky, fabulous, and fun to be around.” I am honored to introduce you all to Jason Oliver Nixon and I am very excited to be included with him as a Style Spotter at this year’s High Point Market on October 13-18! I have already shared a few giggles with him as  we connected at a KBIS event at Hearst Tower this summer.

1. How would you define your style?
Madcap and marvelous. I loathe beige. So damn boring. Give me color and whimsy, panache and aplomb. Let’s mix patterns and live life like we are in a Busby Berkeley Technicolor musical with Fred and Ginger sashaying by. Is that Carmen Miranda rumba-ing across my living room with a backup band dressed like  a bunch of bananas? Why, yes, it is. Pass the martinis, and crank up the Lily Allen. And ring up India, darling, and see what the weather’s like in Mumbai.

2. What or who is your design inspiration?
John Loecke and I turn to Auntie Mame, Eloise, Mom, and travel when it comes to our eureka! moments. We also recently did up a living room in a color palette that we lifted from a bucket of fried chicken from Popeye’s, so you never know when the muse will visit. And let’s just say that Terpsichore and Melpomene can eat more coleslaw than anyone I know. We spend a lot of time in India, so that always influences us, but then we love Milwaukee and Tampa, Florida, too. And we are totally revved-up by music, everything from The Go-Gos and Bryan Ferry to Foster the People and Bananarama.

3. What do you look forward to the most when it comes to your role as Style Spotter at High Point this year?
I am crazy about High Point and have been coming down for the past ten years. It’s like old friend’s week, and there’s gobs of wine in most of the showrooms. John and I drive down and eat far too much BBQ. We bring our dogs, too, and they like to sniff out the latest trends. I can’t wait to scope out something totally crazy and daring that will make me shriek like I was a lasso-ed pig at some messed-up rodeo. Give me a hall tree done up with pineapples, or maybe Cecil over at Currey & Company has come up with a furnishing that is so just-plucked-from-the-moors, n’est-ce pas? “Hello, Heathcliff, it’s Catherine. Come sit upon my Victorian confidante!” Speaking of Currey, if you need a good spot of hooch, pay a visit to the divine Bethanne Matari. She’s always game for a spot o’ the brown liquor any time of the day or night. Bottoms up, darlings!

See what did I say?! I’m definitely looking forward to High Point this year. Follow Mr. Nixon on Twitter for his updates and check out his website to check out more of his work!

Meet Style Spotter, Lori Dennis:

Lori Dennis is an internationally known Interior Designer, speaker, best- selling author, co-founder of Design Camp and star of HGTV’s new show “The Real Designing Women”. Be sure to check out Lori’s website to scroll through some of her latest projects- she does gorgeous work!

1. How would you define your style?  
Architecturally appropriate, clean, warm and classic… with a twist.

2. What or who is your design inspiration?
Being a Southern California girl and avid beach goer,  the ocean side influences much of my life and work.  Two of my favorite interior designers are Karin Blake and Victoria Hagan.  Karin is a master of West Coast Beach style and Victoria reigns the East Coast shores.  I’ve looked to their pared down, but warm interior styles for inspiration throughout my entire career.

3. What do you look forward to the most when it comes to your role as Style Spotter at High Point this year?  
Being able to take a few days off from work, family and life and immerse myself in world class design is pure bliss for me. And I can’t lie, I love the who’s who parties!

Check out more of Lori’s work here and be sure to follow her on Twitter to seek out her latest design updates!

Meet Style Spotter, Janel Laban:

Janel Laban is the Executive Editor of Apartment Therapy, the popular design and lifestyle blog all about life at home. If you haven’t checked out her blog, put that at the top of your to-do list because it is just crammed full of creative and fun posts! Again, I had the pleasure of talking to Janel via the internet and got to know her a little better. She’s another Style Spotter that I’m so excited to meet at High Point!

1. How would you define your style?
I  love classic shapes and patterns in unexpected combinations, colors or finishes and rooms that pull together pieces from a mix of eras. My home is a mashup of Chinoiserie accents, clean lined 20th century classics, a big, old well-loved Persian rug, lots of books, records and lamps, fresh flowers and plenty of pink and red, my favorite color combination. My favorite homes are always apartments in the city that look a little lived in and I think the best rooms have personal “displays” in them – I’m a fan of vignettes of gathered, interesting little bits of art, tchotchkes, antiques, photos and personal memorabilia.

2. What or who is your design inspiration?
I have so many design inspirations and happily, I discover more everyday, thanks to my job. Here’s a quick, off the top of my mind list of people, places and things that inspire me, design-wise: Terence Conran (especially the original House Book, although I love lots of things about his work), traditional Chinese interiors (one of the reasons I love kung fu movies), Patricia Urquiola,  foreign product packaging design, both old and new (I always go into supermarkets and drug stores when traveling), white floors, Tom Dixon, Paris, Scandinavian fabrics, Muji, the dark brown glossy walls (well, actually, the whole apartment) from the movie “All that Jazz”, Claeeson Kovisto Rune, Tokyo, Thomas O’Brien’s book “American Modern”, NYC and fashion photography.
3. What do you look forward to the most when it comes to your role as Style Spotter at High Point this year?  
It’s my first trip to High Point so I’m really just looking forward to the overall experience – it’s a design editor rite of passage! The Style Spotter program is the cherry on top.

Don’t forget to connect with these fabulous Style Spotters, and be on the lookout for more information about my role in High Point! What are you looking forward to the most at High Point this year? Please comment and share!

Wicker Park project that will be featured in tomorrow on LXTV Open House

I had such a blast when I hosted an LXTV tour of my own home on Chicago’s North Shore, and was so excited when I was invited back as a guest designer to give a tour of one of my projects in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.

This project was several years in the making, and I must say that it is one of my proudest achievements.  The home is loved and cherished by a lovely family and I was so lucky that they were willing to embark on this journey with me in pushing the design envelope a bit in a surprising fashion.  This house is an amazing 19th century Italianate manse that the family-along with the renowned Chicago architectural firm of Vinci Hamp and famed Chicago Landscape Design firm, Hoerr Schaudt and myself- completely gutted and restored from top to bottom.  No detail was overlooked in this massive undertaking.  It was definitely worth the years of waiting for the big reveal. The house is beyond amazing, especially since it sits on a rare 5 city lots in the heart of one of Chicago’s chicest and most historic neighborhoods.  It is like a suburban paradise in the middle of its urban surroundings!

Join me on the tour tomorrow (Sunday, March 4th) during LXTV Open House on NBC Channel 5 at 10:30 AM CST.  I would love to have my MGs tune in :)

Here’s a sneak peek of what you will be seeing tomorrow…

Greetings from the City of Lights!  I am here with my hubby John to attend the Maison & Objet Home Fashion Showcase, and we couldn’t be having a better time eating, drinking, sightseeing and shopping our way through this magnificent city!  Although the weather has been a bit dreary at times, that hasn’t stopped us from taking in all that Paris has to offer. Also a blast meeting one of my Chicago client’s at the flea market to find goodies for her new home.  I am so excited to bring the best of European chic back to the U-S of A for my clients and showroom!

Here is a look inside what we have been up to…

Hotel Plaza Athenee…our amazing hotel!  So Paris chic.  Lavish glam to the max! The Gallerie and Night Club were elegant and happening.  The Dior Spa and Fitness Center was one of my favorite haunts during my stay. Fitness was much sought out after foie gras intake daily.

Beautiful nighttime at our lovely hotel with the twinkling lights of the Tour Eiffel in the background. There is an ice skating rink in the courtyard of the hotel with children skating daily to the tunes of french music.

Restaurant Le Jules Verne at the Eifel Tower

Hands down the best meal and views of our stay in Paris.  I highly recommend for lunch, sipping champagne of course!

Clignancourt Flea Market…I was like a kid in a candy store even though I have visited many times….

My client and I trying to wrangle best prices while amusing the crowd :)

Vanves Flea Market…another endless world of treasures!

The main attraction of our trip, Maison & Objet Home Fashion Showcase.  Five days of the most amazing home furnishings and decor in the world!  What is it about Paris that makes everything so oo-la-la?

Check out these chairs…j’adore!

Some exhibitors and me in the Hall of Garden and Home Furnishing’s………..

A few little treats from Laduree to end the perfect day in our hotel …These are mostly gifts I swear!

Here’s to another great year for MG!  Where has this time gone?  It seems like just yesterday that I was blogging about the Business of Design Conference back in August or debuting my space at the Chicago Merchandise Mart Dream Home back in June.

I did this post at the end of 2010, and I can’t believe the time has already come to do it again!  Here’s to you, 2011!

What MG Chicago and my firm Buckingham Interiors + Design were up to these past 12 months…

Wishing all MG readers health and prosperity in the new year!

December

“Fun for the Whole Family”

This post was about a very family friendly project I recently completed in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood.  I wanted to showcase bold colors, textures and patterns in a space that is just as whimsical for adults as it is for children. Look for this home being featured in the January issue of CSInteriors on bookstands January 19th. Written by Tate Gunnerson and photographed by Anthony Tahlier, this should be a very good read.

November

“The Luxe Life”

This is a post about a project I recently completed in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood that was featured in Luxe Magazine.  I tried to play up the homeowner’s love and appreciation of fine art as well as the unparalleled views from this stunning modern high rise.

October

“Affordable Modern? Sign Me Up!”

CB2 did a promotion called “Unlock Affordable Modern” throughout the country, and while it has since ended, my affinity for CB2 certainly has not.  As a lover of all things modern and antique, it was around this time that I coined the term “modernique” to define by aesthetic. I was asked to speak at the  High Point Antiques Market to elaborate on my visions of design nirvana achieved by the mixture of using antiques and modern furnishing’s within each space that I design. Thank you Karen and Amanda!

September

“Totally Wu-ed”

The month of September was a busy one for me!  I was here, there and everywhere, including the Brizo event for Jason Wu in NYC during Fashion Week.  I was invited to the Blogger 19 event (as you can see, there are 19 of us) and had a fabulous time mingling amongst some of the blogosphere’s finest!  Not to mention being up close and personal with Jason Wu’s stunning couture creations was worth the trip in itself! I made some amazing new pals- we are connecting again in February of this year for the 2nd annual Design Blogger’s Conference in LA. So looking forward to seeing them and friends who will be speaking and presenting this year.

August

“Staying in Style in NYC”

One of my assistant’s stayed at the Surrey Hotel in NYC in August and came back to Chicago raving about it.  Of course, I had to check it out for myself! I must say I was very impressed!  Sleek, modern, sophisticated yet so comfortable and livable…I didn’t ever want to check out when I was staying here!

July

“A Gift for You, A Gift for Me!”

I became obsessed with Layla Grace when I had to purchase a birthday present for a friend in July.  While I bought her a monogrammed lucite tray, I inevitably found many things that I was obsessing over for myself! Needless to say that the BID Team has been on the wire many times since then sourcing for our client’s galore.  This orange side table being one of my faves…

June

“Dreaming Big at the Merchandise Mart Dream Home”

I was thrilled to be a part of this year’s Dream Home at the Chicago Merchandise Mart!  Above is an image of my space.  Many thanks to my wonderful team and vendors at the Mart-Bradley Hughes, Baker, Dessin Fournir, Boyd, Paris Ceramics, Holly Hunt, Cai, Jim Thompson, Joanne Trestrail, Richard Norton and Lee Jofa…couldn’t have pulled this together without you! I am looking forward to seeing what next years chosen Chicago designer’s do with these spaces.

May

“Come out to See the Lake Forest Showhouse!”

May was the month of the highly anticipated biannual Lake Forest Showhouse.  My firm designed the foyer, front staircase, and second floor front hall.  May was a fantastic, albeit very busy, month for me.  All worth it because I love what I do!

April

“Victorian Era”

I finished this Lincoln Park Victorian in April.  I loved this project because like many of my projects, this was a historic home that had unbelievable architectural details beneath the surface of some subtle digging and that we were able to bring back upon restoration.  It was amazing to see the history of the house come alive while being updated with modern furniture, art and finishes.

March

“Sunny Side Up”

Spring break month!  One of my assistant’s spent a week in beautiful Palm Beach, Florida and sent me this article about the Lauder Estate there.  Can anything top this view?!  Aerin…I will come hang out anytime ;)

February

“Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful!”

February is truly is the doldrums of winter, and during this time nothing looks better than a blue sky, crystal clear ocean and tropical drink.  Included in Travel and Leisure’s 500 Best Hotel issue were many beach resorts, and I couldn’t resist indulging and fantasizing that I was was lounging on this chaise above.

January

“No ‘Breaking Up’ With This!”

“The Breakup” is one of my favorite movies because a. I love Vince Vaughn b. it takes place in my hometown of Chicago and c. it features my good friend and wonderful artist Francine Turk!  I use Francine’s work all the time (and exhibited her work in my showroom as seen above) and wanted to share with MG just how talented and amazing she is! Hopefully Francine will be joining me this month at Maison et Objet in Paris. Can’t wait for that- not just Paris but to see and learn the latest and greatest in design for the upcoming year.  More to share with y’all!

Can Do!

Posted By Julia-Chicago | Nov 09, 2011 | No Comments | Category: Commercial Spaces, Events

CB2 really has been coming up with some very innovative ideas as of late!  I recently blogged about CB2′s “Unlock Affordable Modern” event, taking place in various cities throughout the country, and now they are being do-gooders with their “Can Do” event.

From November 10-November 28, CB2 is partnering with local food banks for an in-store food drive.  Customers who donate 7 non-perishable food items in-store will receive 15% off their total purchase; online customers who donate $10 to the Share Our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger, will receive 15% off their purchase.

“Can Do” is yet another great reason to shop at CB2!

After a whirlwind travel tour this past week- to High Point North Carolina for my speaking gig at High Point Market, and to Florida to check in on a client project- I am finally able to get back to working, and blogging, at my office in Chicago.

I was so happy to see a copy of the latest Luxe Magazine on my desk upon my return, not only because I am a big fan of the magazine in general but also because one of my recently completed projects is a featured spread.

I had such a great time decorating this Gold Coast home for the clients, who also happen to be good friends of mine-which can be a different and special gig.  The building is new and features unbelievable views of the city-Barney’s being a major highlight- and the wall space that wasn’t taken up by the floor-to-ceiling windows we filled with some really fantastic pieces of art.  I am bubbling over with the results and so excited to see it in both the local Chicago edition- and was notified by the Luxe team that it was also chosen for the national edition of Luxe Magazine this month.  To say that I am flattered to be among the projects’s of Phillip Gorrivan, Jay Jeffers, James Magni, Laura Umansky and the team of Andi Pepper and Stephen Jacobs would be a huge understatement. The talent surrounding me is crazy inspirational.

Check out the images from the feature below!

Biscuits, grits, and High Point Market!  That’s what I’m doing down South this weekend- in High Point, North Carolina.  My assistant Paulina and I headed to the famous home furnishings market for their “Market Week,” not only to check out goods from some of the best vendors in the country, but also because I have been asked to be a speaker at the High Point Market in the Antique & Design Center at Market Square this weekend.  I will be giving a talk on the “Modern-ique” style, which is, as you may have guessed,  is the fusion of modern + antique.

{Sneak peek of my High Point presentation!}

Having been an interior designer for many years, the owner of several shops and showrooms and an inhabitant of many historic and one modern home, “Modern-ique” has come to define my work.  This hybrid style is truly my passion, and I really try to infuse all of my client projects with that special   “Modern-ique” look and feel.

If you happen to be at High Point Market this weekend, I would love for you to come and join me!  The event will be taking place from 2-3 PM at Market Square, Antique and Design Center- Mezzanine Level Seminar Space. The space in which I will be speaking is quite appropriate for it has a rustic and modern vibe all for itself.

To get a sneak peek of my “latest” Modern-ique completion, see images below!  I recently completed this apartment in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood.

Images courtesy of Luxe Magazine.

Stay tuned for more on this project and its feature in Luxe Magazine-both in the Chicago edition and was recently unveiled in the National Luxe Issue- very soon!

If I had to sum up my personal aesthetic in one word, it would be modern + antique.  Ok, two words plus a punctuation symbol.  Having been in this industry for many years, living in many homes, and owning/operating several shops and showrooms, I have become accustomed to searching high and low for artifacts- both new and old- to fit a space.  More often than not, such pieces can be very pricey, but I am always on the lookout for things that won’t break the bank.  One of my go to’s for affordable modern is CB2, the fun, funky and well-priced kid sibling of Crate and Barrel.

I was very excited to learn of CB2′s “Unlock Affordable Modern” event taking place in various cities across the country this fall/winter- including Chicago, DC, San Francisco, LA, New York and Atlanta.  The concept behind this initiative is the handiwork of some very creative minds…CB2 representatives will be traveling to the cities listed above (as well as five others) to hand out 95,000 “orange keys”, each with a unique code.  Orange key…you’ve got my attention right there!  These keys can be redeemed at CB2 locations for a chance to win a CB2 card, worth $10 up to $1000!

Over the weekend, the CB2 team dropped off keys for this event at my showroom and we all scrambled over to the store- but no winners yet.  Better chances for the rest of you!

Chicagoans…if  missed the drop off at my showroom and across town this weekend and want a key respond “Attending” to the “Unlock Affordable Modern: Chicago”event and swing by the CB2 store (800 W. North Ave., Chicago) October 8-9 to pick up your key!

If you are unable to get your hands on a physical key or want to learn more, you can receive a “virtual key” via text by visiting the “Unlock Affordable Modern” website.  Oh the joys of modern technology!

And…ONLY for MG reader’s a “secret” phrase mentioned at the Chicago or Washington DC stores for the first 20 reader’s will garner you another key..announce that “Material Girls Love CB2″ and you will grab another chance at winning.

To learn more about the event, what cities the CB2 team will be visiting and where the representatives will be handing out keys visit their website here.

More from CB2….
