Named one of Architectural Digest’s top 100 architects and designers in the world for nine years, Timothy Corrigan is a master at creating laid-back luxe interiors. Although born in the United States, Corrigan’s love of classical European style is evident in all of his projects. In addition, it’s paramount for the design icon to create spaces that are inviting, livable and comfortable. Love this!

Timothy Corrigan fabrics for Schumacher

Corrigan recently introduced a beautiful new collection of fabrics and furnishings with Schumacher. As you can see from the sampling of fabrics above, the collection like his interiors, seamlessly blends European elegance with a chic California freshness. Pulling many of the same rich layers, patterns and colorways, Corrigan is debuting a new line of rugs with Patterson, Flynn & Martin. All nine rug patterns are completely customizable – pick your own colors and even change the pattern’s scale. I’m in love and think you will be too. Have a look at my five favorites…

Design Reveal :: California Casual Chic Living Room

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using this link.

 

Open to the kitchen with a view of the backyard, my client envisioned a casual retreat that could stand up to all the kids’ play, yet still be chic. The result is an inviting, kid-friendly space that incorporates a fresh twist on traditional, mixes the old with new and features worldly accents. I’m thrilled to give you a tour of this California casual chic living room.

The color palette, of blues and gold was predetermined by the room’s wall color and roman shades. A pair of existing skirted sofas were reupholstered in woven golden fabric – although still a tailored look, they have a warm beachy feel. The seating area is anchored by a steel blue rug with a fresh pattern inspired by ancient Aztec tile.

A demilune table found at a local consignment store was placed behind the sofa and is flanked by a pair of elegant Rococo style chairs. The heirloom antique chairs were reupholstered in the beautiful Sinhala Linen (stone) by Martyn Lawrence Bullard for Schumacher. The traditional tree of life pattern really complements the chair’s ornate pierced splat back and curvy cabriole legs.

Between the sofas I placed a Moroccan inspired octagonal side table topped with a beautiful brass ring lamp, turquoise foo dog and a succulent that brings the outside in.  The sofas’ custom throw pillows in Sikar Embroidery (flax) also by Martyn Lawrence Bullard features an exotic ikat pattern that pulls together the color palette beautifully.

Avoiding sharp corners, an oval coffee table with a gilded base and marble top was selected. The table was back-ordered forever, but worth the wait!

Mary McDonald Fabrics for Schumacher

Mary McDonald Fabrics for Schumacher

Season two of  the Million Dollar Decorators show wrapped up this week and had me wanting more! However, I was thrilled to see that one of the shows stars, interior designer Mary McDonald, launched her fabric collection with Schumacher today. On the heels of Marytn Lawrence Bullard‘s collection (which I love), Mary’s line is sure to be a huge success. The high-style collection features exquisite velvets, printed linens and some fabulous embroidered tapes and appliques.

Blending her love of Chinoiserie, color and bold patterns Mary reinterprets traditional textile designs in a clean and graphic style. Enhanced through dramatic scale this collection brings a strong sense of glamour and sophistication to any space. – Schumacher

Client Reveal :: Black, White & Gray Living Room

living room before

This was the living room of a darling client with young children. It’s where they spend the majority of their time (dancing to Wii, reading books and watching TV). It’s also the first room you see when you enter the home, so they wanted a more sophisticated, pulled together look. The black leather, kid-friendly sofas were the only items in the room that the family wanted to keep (although, the sofa table and round end table ended up working with the design).  Custom sofa pillows in Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s Darya Ikat cotton/linen fabric in stone for Schumacher was the inspiration for the room’s black, white and gray color palette. Everything from there just flowed naturally. They love the result and so do I…

My client’s husband grew up on the beaches of Southern California, so I wanted to include elements of the sea in the space. A series of coral prints by Kerri Shipp of Driftwood Interiors was selected, framed and hung above one of the sofas. It’s a simple, yet sophisticated look. Just want the family wanted!
