Design Crush :: Walker Zanger Sterling Row

Walker Zanger, world-renown for luxury stone and tile, launches its newest collection inspired by elegant menswear. Created from a beautiful mix of porcelain tile and black and white marble, the Sterling Row Collection offers the stunning look of exotic wood and marble inlay. The collection features masculine and timeless patterns evoked from the well dressed gentleman including some of my favorites, houndstooth, oxford, argyle and tuxedo.

The designs of Sterling Row are inspired by the elegant feel of fine fabrics, the richness of burnished leather and the luxurious bespoke menswear created by the finest tailors in London, Manhattan and Paris. – Walker Zanger

Friday Finds :: 5 Favorites

It took me a couple days to get back into the swing of things around here. But we are back to our routine with the kids back at school and me back to work. Fortunately, I love what I do, so it wasn’t that hard to get motivated again. Speaking of motivating, I’ve rounded up five favorite articles and images I came across this week – had to share them with you!

Vintage Chic Home Office Design

As a designer I’m always seeking out chic vintage furnishings and home decor. My go to destinations include flea markets, estate sales and craigslist. However, the process of scouring through items can be time consuming, hit or miss and downright frustrating (is it the real deal? is the seller trustworthy?).  And of course this is simply the buying side, not the selling side of vintage furnishings! But fortunately there is now Chairish, an online marketplace where design lovers can exchange gently used, pre-owned furniture and decor directly with one another. They make the whole buying, selling and shipping process a breeze. In addition, the experts at Chairish hand-select and curate the collections of items on the site, so you know you’re getting quality vintage and designer decor that is accurately represented. Love!

The folks at Chairish asked me to select a favorite rug from various styles that were provided and then create a styleboard designed around that pattern and color scheme using furnishings from their site. I selected a beautiful grass green Turkish rug as the starting point for a vintage chic home office design. The process of sourcing and searching for items on Chairish was fast and easy. I could even keep track of my favorites along the way! The result is fresh, airy and of course chic.
