One of my guilty pleasures is occasionally tuning into TMZ…although it is generally complete trash, last week they actually reported something pretty interesting.  It turns out Gwyneth Paltrow and her adorable husband Chris Martin purchased a spectacular estate in the Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles known as The House of Windsor.  I am completely blown away by all of the lovely details in this home concept home, which was designed by Windsor Smith and decorated by designers from Veranda Magazine.  Click here for a 360° tour of each and every inch of this property!

Room in Manhattan

I love this room in Manhattan. Vintage style clothing designer Michelle Smith’s apartment speaks vintage chic. The decor by Shaun Jackson features an alarmingly beautiful crystal chandelier, 1940s eglomise mirror, and pale zebra-print chairs by Jim Thompson.

Missoni for the home…incredible design that is fresh and young for a new apartment!


Missoni is launching their new Home collection for the 2012 New York Design week. The company is originally from Italy and is a family owned business. Missoni is infamous for their brightly colored woven clothing. As some of you may know, Missoni came out with their Missoni for Target in the fall of 2011 and it was so popular that the Target website reached its full capacity with viewers since so many consumers were purchasing the items.

The showroom is located at Domus Design Collection at Madison and 34th in New York and features a wide variety of different products from the Italy based company. These bright collections will be great with an all white room that needs a pop of color (i.e. an all white living room with a vibrant Missoni Home ottoman or light fixtures). The wallcoverings would also make an outstanding accent wall or can be made…

Loft Love – Barbara Littman’s Chelsea Loft

Bright and spacious, I’ve found loft love in interior designer, Barbara Littman’s loft in Chelsea, New York. What is inspiring too, is this 69 year old mother of three with six grandchildren, who hasn’t nestled herself into some comfy little cottage-like atmosphere, but is spreading her wings instead of folding them. She went for a master’s degree in architecture in her 50s. Now that’s encouragement. A woman still on the move, Littman teaches interior and furniture design at Kean University in New Jersey and also at the NJ Institute of Technology.

She purchased this loft in 2009 for just under $4 Million. After two years of renovation, $190,000 to revamp to her taste, and with the aid of New York architect Robert D. Henry, Littman now has the space of her dreams.

What she says of her newly renovated loft space: “When I look out the window, I just love being part of the city. It’s the energy here that’s always been something for me.”
