Tonight I'm going to do something a little different, I'm going to tell you about a interior design portfolio which you can tap into yourself if you want a bit of an interior design fix.

It's on the Decorati's website, a page (well a few actually) showing their top interior designer's rooms, with a brief description and information on how to try and get that look (although the "get info" idea is a bit sparse!)

It's called "Get This Look"!

I'm going to post here
my Top 5 Favorites.
I try to be so careful to look for true design style, and not just gorgeous furniture piled together in a room, which can work just as easily for an amateur because I'm looking to highlight true "designer" work - ergo, inspiration!

1. Black and White Stripe Master Entry
designer: Nicole Yee, NY Interiors

Description: A vintage gown and dramatic black and white stripes that carry down the wall and over a custom bench define the entryway as a very unique dressing area.
My comment: This pic has inspired me to put a vintage gown in my bedroom on my mannequin! Now to find one...

2. Contemporary Living Space

manufacturer: Benjamin Moore

My comment: I think this Benjamin Moore is a "paint" company, so this is probably an add for paint, but hey, I still really liked it!
(I'm in love with all things lime right now - can't explain it!)

3. Vegas Glamor Great Room
designer: W Interiors - Gina Willman

Description: Gina started W INTERIORS out of a passion for layers—the layering of her talents in art, design, and architecture, and a love of interior spaces that are at once modern, energizing, and contemplative. Clear instincts and a large network of artists and craftsmen—these are the key elements that have earned Gina a reputation for elegance and success in designing luxury residential homes that excite their owners. She is dedicated to staying abreast of new products, and excels in incorporating modern elements into timeless design principles. Her stylish Hawaii and Mainland interiors reflect the unique tastes and needs of each client, as she aims above all to help them articulate a vision that is rooted in their sense of how they want to feel in their space.

My comment: Well she had a big portfolio on their site, I must say, her style is quite masculine to me, a little on the "hotel" side of decorating, but it is gorgeous, very livable, relaxing and inviting...

4. Carlyle Hotel, Manhattan NY
manufacturer: Studio Printworks

Description: The Pauline wallpaper was part of a restoration for the interiors of the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan by CB Homes. Cameron, the president of CB Home, lead the project and is a personal friend of Dennis Shah (the president of SPW). This is in a suite in the hotel.

Studio Printworks was founded with the philosophy that sophisticated, hand-printed wallpaper adds style and richness to any home, be it city maisonette or rustic country cottage. It is with this ideal in mind that we offer high-style designs from diverse moments, places, and hands. In the spirit of the great 20th Century design masters, and with the talents of fine, contemporary artists we create wallpaper, not as quiet backdrop, but as stimulant for the eye and the soul.

My comment: Well this kind of design is right up my alley, it's stylish, contemporary, glamorous and best of all, unique. As you can see tho, this is a wallpaper company, not a designer, but none the less, just as inviting for me to mention in my Top 5!

5. Shagreen-clad cabinet by Vicente Wolf
designer: Vicente Wolf

Description: Designed by Vicente Wolf, this multi-functional cabinet can be used as a bathroom vanity (seen here). All panels are covered in Shagreen to secure ultimate luxury.

For the past three decades Vicente Wolf has fostered the global development of his brand through a simplicity-driven principle that infuses his many creative endeavours: interior design, photography, art collection and global travel.

Always on the lookout for new ways in which to inspire the world of design, Wolf’s eye for detail has created a reputation for quality appreciated by his discerning client list, the creative industry as a whole, and his international partnerships with some of the world’s top luxury brands. Award winning designer, international speaker, lauded retailer and celebrated business partner, the designer now heads up two companies: VW Home by Vicente Wolf and Vicente Wolf Associates.

My comment: Wowza - this guy has good taste. I just took a tour around his website, some of his work is so gorgeous, he has a distinct style, almost soft masculine - hard to explain, but I loved it! He also has a blog if you want to see him speak his mind on his craft, interesting, but seriously people, who has time to read blogs these days... ! huh *snigger*


I hope this post has offered you something different, and I'll put up another stunning home in a couple of days!
