Identity Crisis

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

{Windsor Smith – one of my all time favorite designers}

If you’ve read MG for a while, you know I’m all about “comfortable glamour.”  Lately I’ve been really drawn the style that made me fall in love with Interior Design years ago – “California Casual.”  It’s the anti-furniture store look I embraced eagerly as a young designer/student.  Color, a mix of textures, and a general relaxed feel perfected by Peter Dunham, Schulyer Samperton, and Estee Stanley to name a few.

And then there’s this…just love.  Sparkle, monochromatic textures, and modern elements:

{My favorite version of Sally Wheat’s Living Room}

{I’m guessing Ryan Korban?}

Faux fur throws and touches of black? YES!

Mix of antiques with sparkly/shining things

Clean-lined perfection…realistically I could not live with all the white and zero clutter but I do love to look at it.



I know my favorite styles aren’t exactly polar opposites, but it’s fun to analyze.  Ultimately I’m somewhere in the middle and just buy things I love!

I love this style “comfortable glamor”. It’s great to buy things that you fall in love with and make them work together. I love the monochromatic themes in the pictures posted above; they all work well together with the classic and modern elements.

modern, yet stylist and simple. I like the idea of a mix of white and black furniture background in various room around a house. it keeps balance

I can say that there are some unique details that I have saw. Not a typical way of arranging furniture. It resulted very great.
