I really love looking at photos of amazing interiors and have been doing it for some 40 years now, so it’s rare that I see an image of something that feels completely new. This is one such image for me.
There’s so much here that I love the idea of: the stark black/white/grey of the built-ins against the warmth of the beautiful wood floor; the really random mixture of things–from the stack of magazines (with the portrait peeking out above them) in the far corner to the crates atop the upper cabinets to the books, bust and whatever else that is on the right; the French doors (!); and that ceiling. That. Ceiling.
Then, to top it all off, the office set up on the table with the French press standing by. Heaven.
Again, from the awesome interiors porn.
They’re the family everyone loves to hate, the folks who are alternately the most sought-after designers or one of the signs of the Apocalypse, they’re the Novogratzes. I winced when I first saw the ads on Bravo for their show, “9 by Design,” but then I watched it and fell in love. Anyone know if they’re getting a second season?
I’m continually drawn back to a palette containing slate and red (see Roman & Williams, below — not to mention the palette of this very site!). This one throws in white, which is not something that appeals to me — it dilutes the richness and drama too much. When we upgrade our kitchen I’d love to do it in the slate/red family.
