Have you been “Keeping up with the Kardashians” lately? Well, if you have, then you know the youngest sister of the Kardashian clan has put her Tarzana, CA mansion on the market!

It looks like after filing for divorce on December 13, 2013 Khloe is ready for a fresh start for 2014.
The 8000 sq. ft. home that the reality star shared with former NBA husband Lamar Odom for four years is for sale for a cool $5.499 million.
The gated Mediterranean-style home has 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a den, home theater, office and 3 custom closets according to redfin.com.
The glam and over the top décor throughout the home is exactly what you would expect from a Kardashian. Take a look inside!

 The two office chairs were vintage chairs that Khloe already owned and were simply reupholstered. Its great to see that celebrities re-purpose furniture too!

The dark browns from the kitchen continue into the family room on this spacious sectional. I love the custom pillows and saw this fabric on F. Schaumcher’s website.   If you noticed the same fabric  was used on the desk chair in the office.

Angie’s Style

Posted By Emily-Dallas | Nov 06, 2013 | No Comments | Category: Color, Design Inspiration, Designers

Ralph Lauren Sea Pink! That’s what started it all. While browsing through Decorpad I found a space with a paint color I loved (as a possibility for my master bedroom) and reached out to the room’s designer for the brand and the name of the color.

In just a short time I received an email from Charleston, SC based designer Angie Hranowsky with all of the paint’s info. I know how busy designers are so I was completely shocked how quickly she responded and how gracious she was to hand over the paint info to me!

Angie is known for her eclectic mix of styles and non-traditional bold color selections.  Her funky and fun design aesthetic has gotten her featured in several publications such as House Beautiful, Traditional Home &  Domino Magazine.

Check out her website http://angiehranowsky.com and you will agree Angie is a hip designer with great style. She has mastered the art of tastefully combining patterns, colors and furniture for a perfect finished look that will inspire you. I absolutely love her work!

Is there any field famed designer Nate Berkus has not tried to conquer? There is no need to answer that because we all know he is popping up everywhere. Oprah has given him his own talk show, he has a bestselling book, and still has time to manage a firm. Host, author, designer- he wears many hats and can now add to that list because his new fall line for Target just hit stores!

This post is paying homage to all his career roles.

He has a great approach to how he conquers residential design. His philosophy is that the rooms should tell the story of who the owners are and reflect their personalities.

Imagine working at his Chicago firm in this open environment!

This just seems like the coolest space to make dinner in each evening. I love that he made the industrial finishes appear so warm.

The play with color, lighting, and shape makes this bathroom very fresh and fun.

The modern art pieces selected really help exagerrate the angles and length of the living room. And who else can make a silver bean bag not seem tacky?

I love the mix of textures and rich tones. The different patterns all compliment each other to create something visually interesting.

I am probably a little biased since I am a sucker for yellow but I wish this was my master walk-in closet!

You were warned about the yellow! Berkus also has fabric lines with fabricut and calico.

I can’t get over this print and color combination!

This honeycomb wall art is part of his new line for Target. Hexagons may turn out to be the shape of the year!

If you are looking for something riskier, this gold and black pillow for Target would do the trick to add edge to your room!

Since Nate is constantly reinventing himself, pushing his talent and clearly not afraid to try new things I cannot wait to see what he does next!

Jan

We recently spoke with Dallas designer Jan Showers after blogging about her latest book, “Glamorous Retreats”.  Here are some of the highlights from our talk:

Why interior design?  

I have always loved houses and the way they are designed fascinates me. My mother had amazing taste- she brought me up to love interior design, antiques, and color.

What inspires you?

Travel, nature, art, books, fashion and people.

Was there a moment in your career you knew you had made it and established yourself as a top designer?  

I felt very validated the first time I had a project published in a major magazine. To say that I think of myself as a top designer and have it made is really not part of my thought process- I try to do the best work possible with as much rigor and dedication as I am capable of- If I do that and my client is happy, then I am pleased with my work and consider myself a successful designer.

Is there a field you have not covered that you still wish to explore?  

I am eager to do a fabric/wall-covering collection and that is definitely in the works! More news about that soon!

Your new book is all about vacation homes, what is your dream vacation spot?

I always cry when I leave St. Barth’s- It’s the top of the world to me- So I guess it’s my dream vacation. Of course, I love New York, Paris, London, Venice, Lake Como, and summer in Montecito, California. 

When you start a new project, what is the first thing you choose?

I would typically choose the antiques and art because they are so important to any room. The rug is a close second.

Complete this sentence: No vacation home is complete without

Comfort.

Do you have an item in your home, not of your own design, that you feel best represents you?

I adore my dining room and everything in it at our house outside of Dallas- The chandelier by Barovier (designed by Andre Arbus), the Lotus XVI style chairs in their original pale golden yellow, the Donald Kaufman #12 paint on the walls and the very “Sister Parish” buffet I found almost 20 years ago in Paris. None of these are my own design- they are all antiques and I think they represent what I love the most personally.

What do you see as the biggest or most common mistake homeowners make?

Choosing furniture that is the wrong scale- usually too large for the room.

What is currently your favorite color to work with?  

Platinum gray mixed with gold metallics and almost any warm gray because it creates the look of natural stone and everything goes with it.

What current trend do you think we will see fade within the next few years?

Drapery, pillows and upholstery all matching in vibrant colors.

What current trend are you in love with?  

The undecorated look- not sure it’s a trend, but it’s what I try to achieve- a home that reflects the personality and interests of the owner and one that does not look like a stage set or a hotel room. Hotels are referenced to me a lot by clients and I always tell them that a hotel can be amazing, but even when it is incredible, it can never look personal and truly lived in.

And finally, what is the best piece of design advice you have ever been given and would pass along to someone?  

Make sure you truly understand your client and then give them a vision of what their home will ultimately look like. When you both have the same vision based on their needs and desires, you will have a wonderful finished product.

My other piece of advice is about eye level lighting- overhead lighting is used to age actors and actresses- always be sure there is plenty of eye level lighting- lamps, floor lamps and sconces- in every room.

We thank Jan for her insight and time!

Jan’s book is now on sale and can be ordered from amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Glamorous-Retreats-Jan-Showers/dp/1419708538/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1380921060&sr=8-1&keywords=jan+showers+glamorous+retreats

If there are two things I completely obsess over, it is great design and celebrity gossip. I too often get carried away catching up on the lifestyles of the rich and famous. So naturally,  I was thrilled to discover (via Elle Decor) Cameron Diaz had enlisted Kelly Wearstler (our idol) to bring a taste of Hollywood to her Manhattan apartment. Consider it, West Village meets West Coast.

Cameron just took on the role of Artistic Director for the fashion-accessories label Pour La Victoire and so she already knew the space needed color. A lot of the signature pieces in the living room, including the stunning chandelier, are vintage.

Wearstler considered Diaz as more of a collaborator in this design rather than a client since she was very involved with the process.

The rooms reflect her personality- “innately sexy but not overly flashy” (-KW).  Lighting plays such an important role in this design story and the richness of the emerald green cabinets, along with the mirrored walls definitely give off that movie star vibe.

The bedroom really showcases the glamour and true to high-end couture, no detail is overlooked. Even the chest drawers are lined with raw black silk!

I love the glass tiling and metallic finishes used in the master bathroom!

If this guest bathroom does not scream luxe, nothing will! The apartment transitions from rich tones in gold and green to subtler palettes reminiscent of 1970′s fashion and I am sure Team Kelly and Cameron have now created new trends to be inspired by and follow!

I think it is fair to say that fall is FINALLY creeping up on us here in Texas. Even though summer is fading, we can still sit here and dream of lavish vacation spots thanks to Jan Showers’ latest book, Glamorous Retreats!  A follow-up to the bestselling Glamorous Rooms, her latest work features interiors from locales across North America. The pages take you everywhere from the beaches of Nantucket to the lodges in Colorado down to Arizona ranches. Glamorous Retreats is that signature coffee table book or staple needed for your study collection that everyone should just go ahead and pre-order!

One of my favorites, Michael Kors, (yes, THE legendary American fashion designer) wrote “Design like Jan’s fuses great taste and an expert eye with the reality of life as it is actually lived.”

Jan Showers has the ability to blend Hollywood high fashion with vintage Paris; it’s as if you are walking around Paris in the 1700′s without losing any of the contemporary aesthetic.

harbour island 34 (2)

In this Harbor Island getaway the transition from one period to the next seems effortless.  She has said that she always wants her rooms to look like they happened over a long period of a time, which is why these designs become so timeless. I love how she is able to introduce so many different textures and keep the space feeling cohesive.

I love that she mixes the elegant with the eclectic in a way where this rustic room still feels personal and inviting.

Subtle glamour is the key. As Jan puts it, “think Audrey Hepburn in capri pants.” That really is the perfect metaphor to describe these gorgeous settings!

On sale October 1, we are now adding Showers’ Glamorous Retreats to our guilty pleasures list!

Make It Work!

Posted By Nathan-Dallas | May 29, 2013 | 3 Comments | Category: Books, Celebs, Designers

Tim Gunn!

 

Last week I had the amazing honor and opportunity of interviewing the one and only Tim Gunn!  Watch the video here! Be sure to turn your volume up!

Tim has been one of my favorite TV celebrities ever since I watched the very first episode of Project Runway years ago.  I also look up to Mr. Gunn as a role model.  His career in design is truly inspirational.  He’s basically covered everything from architecture to fashion!  His perfect mannerisms, dress, and personality are nothing short of captivating.  And let’s not forget about his outrageously extensive vocabulary that he’s so well known for, as well as the famous ‘Make It Work’ quote that he coined!

In the interview, you’ll find that his love for architecture and design started with Legos as a child! Legos were a a favorite of mine growing up as well (and I’ll admit, I still like playing with them as an adult).  It always seemed that my brothers and I usually got a new set for birthdays or at Christmas.  Who knew such a simple toy could lead to design stardom! (in Tim’s case anyways!)

Lego

He’s also written a few books along the way.  I highly recommend picking up one or two if you’re a book junkie like me!

 

Gunn's Golden Rules

Gunn’s Golden Rules is my favorite!

A Guide To Quality, Taste and Style

A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style will show you how to always have impeccable style that is timeless.

Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible

Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible is a great go-to when you find your self in a fashion conundrum!

I hope you enjoyed my video interview with Tim Gunn!

A special thank you to Mr. Tim Gunn and Caroline Ambuhl of

I’m not a big TV watcher, so it’s rare that I’m ever camped out in front of the TV for hours mesmerized by a certain show.  There is only one night a year when this happens and it is…the Oscars! I just love watching my favorite celebs dress up in the most beautiful (or most heinous :) ) gowns and seeing which movies take home the big awards.  The fashion is so much fun to watch…but as an interiors nut, I also wait in anticipation to see the design of the Green Room every year.  This cozy lil room is where the stars wait to present their awards and is located just steps from the stage, and from host Seth MacFarlane’s dressing room.  This year’s Green Room was designed by acclaimed interior designer Madeline Stuart and had a very cozy lounge vibe to it.

Madeline wanted to give the room the feeling of Old Hollywood while also incorporating design elements of the 21 century. She said “My goal was to design a space where contemporary stars wouldn’t be surprised to bump into Cary Grant or Katharine Hepburn.”

Green Room2

Designed with mostly Baker furnishings, black lacquer finished wood flooring, and Emerald paint (Pantone’s 2013 color of the year), the room was modeled after Academy Award winner, Cedric Gibbs.

I particularly love the chevron chairs if I do say so myself!

greenroom3

The room may have been inspired by Old Hollywood, but there is nothing “Old Hollywood” about it when it comes to the decked out electronics in the room. Inside there are ten, yes ten 55″ Samsung Smart TVs. I’m sure the stars backstage didn’t miss any of the Oscar action!

Well done MS…can’t wait to see which designer is slated for next year’s Green Room!
