San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 – Dining Room

Last week I finally had the opportunity to tour this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase. One room that stood out as a personal favorite was the formal dining room by Cecilia Sagrera-Hill and George Brazil of SagreraBrazil. The room’s elegant design was inspired by the existing beautiful wood detailing and gorgeous hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper installed by interior design icon, Michael Taylor (1927-1986). Mixing up period styles, the design duo added modern elements including the rug, upholstered chairs and geometric shaped dining table covered in a form fitted golden cover. The most eye-catching element however was the modern art hung above the fireplace – a magical infinity mirror with suspended butterflies in colors pulled from the wallpaper. I tried capturing an image of the artwork, but failed (so sorry!). These images don’t do the room justice, but I pulled some of the best ones I took and found:

Their exquisite block printed fabrics and wallpaper are some of the prettiest around. Recently they released their new collection for spring 2014 – lantern, reed, parquet and sakura. They are fresh, pattern rich and you are going to love.

Traditional & Colorful Interior Design by Miles Redd

New York based Interior Designer, Miles Redd (aka “king of color”) continues to live up to the colorful reputation. Elle Decor recently featured a Hudson Valley house designed by architect Gil Schafer and decorated by Redd. The homeowners wanted a home that was rich in tradition and had a functional floor-plan. The result is a gorgeous, color rich 7,500 square foot countryside home.

“It was important to consider Gil’s marvelous architecture,” says Redd. “The proportions, the moldings, and the amazing staircase set the tone.” He found a Sultanabad rug in rich hues of peacock-blue with greens and reds. “That was the springboard for us,” he explains, and its palette ultimately provided the subtle cohesion of color that holds true throughout the rooms. – Elle Decor

Rustic, Elegant Row House in Brooklyn

Recently Vogue featured the Brooklyn home of  landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor, Miranda Brooks and her architect husband, Bastien Halard. Lead by Harlard, the rundown row house was completely renovated from head to toe in just six months. The interior design is American pastoral with rustic, yet elegant touches. And although new, the rooms are inviting and have a lived in feel I love. Speaking of love, it was the custom de Gournay wallcovering in the master bedroom and hand-painted/printed wallpapers in the girls’ rooms that had me looking twice at this home. (swoon)
