Architectural Digest just published this vibrant Brooklyn brownstone designed by Nick Olsen in their August issue. I’ve long been a fan of Nick’s fearless approach to decorating and this family’s colorful space is no exception. The lacquer blue library looks like the perfect place to cozy up with a book, don’t you think…? I can’t wait to read the full story in print.
Looking to step up your lighting game? These silk ikat lampshades by Melodi Horne have me longing for a more colorful abode. Based out of London’s Notting Hill, the company sources their ikat textiles from Uzbekistan and crafts their lampshades and pillows in the United Kingdom. I love how the shades are gathered on the outside and boast handsome Irish linen lining and piping. I think I may need a pair for my new Ernst table lamps from Zinc Door (so Jean Michel Frank by Diego Giacometti, right?).
I love this small peek of Melissa Ventosa Martin’s Brooklyn abode published on Jean Stories. The Self magazine fashion director clearly has an eye for both fashion and interior design. I can’t help but envy her tall lilac branches, vast vinyl collection, and assortment of art. I hope someone publishes the full home someday so we can see more!
