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!)

Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.

image

The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.

One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.

The show opens to the public Thursday, October 10th and runs through the weekend.

For a recap of my coverage from last year, check out my post here.

This past week I attended the opening party for the Los Angeles Modernism Show, taking place through the weekend at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The show features over fifty exhibitors displaying 20th century furniture, decorative and fine art from across the US and Europe. Most all the exhibitors (with a few exceptions) are based here in Southern California. The event also benefits P.S. Arts, a charity working to improve the lives of children by providing arts education (a charity I’ve mentioned and featured greatly on the blog). The show featured some amazing  finds – and here is what caught my eye (among the celebs in attendance)!

It was lovely to meet and see actress Courtney Cox! (Her fellow Friends star Lisa Kudrow was also in attendance.)

JillSeidner

My “design partner in crime” and fellow blogger Christian of Maison21 attended the event with me too.

Loved this glam gold console featured in one of the exhibitor booth’s at the Los Angeles Modernism Show.

424564_10151636037838478_688792598_n

Lots of artwork among the vendors, including abstracts, pop art, and geometric pieces like this one.

Maison21 looking quite serious among some modern colorful pop art.

JillSeidner11

I would say the Joannes Lucas booth was the most eclectic of all the vendors, with the theme “Zoo” going on.

JillSeidner12

But I have to say, I quite liked this guy.

JillSeidner13

And wouldn’t doubt this would be a conversation piece at any party.

JillSeidner4

One of our favorites, is the Christopher Anthony Ltd space (which we had also seen at last Fall’s Art & Antiques Show). Again, another hit – featuring some great finds – including the console and accessories above (and below).

JillSeidner1

We had our eye on this vintage fireplace screen.

JillSeidner2

I thought this gilded geometric wall sculpture was pretty cool.

JillSeidner3

More from Christopher Anthony Ltd – modern metal and glass side tables.

431874_10151634889808478_1441541483_n

Off the Wall Antiques featured some great items, too – such as this large scale chandelier.

44371_10151634890243478_1928352360_n

These textured wall tiles were a fave of Maison21′s.

401225_10151636039183478_1021678076_n

I quite liked these retro textured pair of doors.

JillSeidner6

Lot’s of abstract art was on display, both gallery style among the aisles and in the vendor booths. I think seeing all the various pieces of art was one of my favorite things (well, among so much else!).

If you missed the show this year, be sure to mark your calendar for next year!

Recently featured in Architectural Digest (& making the rounds on Pinterest!) comes the latest project from famed interior designer Kelly Wearstler. Along with architect M. Brian Tichenor comes a 1930′s renovation of a Bel Air, California home. Of course, working with Kelly means only one thing: a bold new look!

In the living room, the vintage wall lights are a salvage from a Roman cinema along with leather sofas from J. Robert Scott.

item9.rendition.slideshowWideVertical.kelly-wearstler-11-office

Rasberry leather chairs designed by Kelly are featured in the wife’s office.

item10.rendition.slideshowWideVertical.kelly-wearstler-07-daughters-room

I’m loving this bedroom! The daughter’s four poster bed is by Paul Evans with a custom made wallcovering from Porter Teleo. Vintage ceiling light and pair of dressers are from local LA showroom JF Chen (a Kelly favorite). The carpet is a customized carpet by The Rug Company.

item11.rendition.slideshowWideVertical.kelly-wearstler-08-daughters-bath

Another room I am loving! The daughter’s bathroom features inlaid-marble walls with vintage 60′s sconces. Sink fittings are from Lefroy Brooks.

item12.rendition.slideshowWideHorizontal.kelly-wearstler-09-pool-pavillion

The pool pavilion features a black and white herringbone pattern floor in stained walnut (brilliant!).

item13.rendition.slideshowWideVertical.kelly-wearstler-10-pavillion-bath

In the pavilion bath, striped walls play off a checkerboard floor and an oval 1920′s brass mirror is paired with an angular brass vanity. (Lots and lots of brass featured in this project!)

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the 17th Annual Los Angeles Antiques, Art + Design Show Opening Night Party held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The event features over sixty prestigious national and international exhibitors and benefits the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts and Design Council. In attendance were both Hollywood celebs and designer celebs mingling together under one roof for a fabulous evening. (Click here for a link to the Getty Images.)

My date for the evening, Maison21 and I.

Reform Gallery, based here in Los Angeles, exhibited some fantastic artwork.

Always a fan of colorful abstract art, as seen at Reform Gallery.

More art and accessories at Reform Gallery’s space.

Vintage accessories seen at Joannes Lucas.

Loving this table lamp featured at Joannes Lucas.

Art and console in the space representing the LA based showroom, Habite.

One thing Maison21 and I agree on: we both loved almost everything in the Christopher Anthony Ltd space, a vintage store located in Palm Springs, CA.

A vintage bar cart at Christopher Anthony Ltd, pretty much puts every other bar cart to shame.

More fabulous finds from Christopher Anthony Ltd.

And yet, still more.

It was fun to see (& meet!) artist Lana Gomez in person. Emily recently featured Lana on the Material Girls blog (here)- we are a huge fan of her work!

Artist Lana Gomez pictured here in front of one of her large scale abstract paintings.

Dragonette, another Los Angeles based showroom located on La Cienega Blvd, featured a range of furnishings and accessories in their space.

A vignette at Dragonette.

A close up of a vignette showcased in Dragonette’s space.

JF Chen, a recipient of the 2012 Design Leadership Award Honoree, featured some dramatic pieces in his space.

“Newspaper” chair and ottoman, seen at JF Chen.

Lighting love, from Downtown, a La Cienega Blvd showroom.

Bejeweled encrusted boxes at Downtown (I spied Kelly Wearstler checking these out!).
