Wow. If ever there was a space that is hard to capture in just a few words, this is it. Modern, yes — just look at the furnishings. But there’s also that feeling of calm, open spaciousness that I associate with minimalism. Then there’s an almost luxurious sense of shabbiness from the fabrics. And the whole structure appears to be some old, abandoned industrial site. Yet, in some way that I can only assume is due to the rigorous application of magic, it all works together beautifully.

This is my kind of space and totally makes me smile because the elements speak directly to me. The mixture of modern pieces in an historical setting, the use of deep color on the walls, the rich wood textures of the floor and paneling, the large scale art (reminiscent of childhood for me, weirdly), the sideboard, the Tulip table, the upholstered chairs…. Ahhhhhhhh!

I’ve read complaints that masculine design relies too much on neutrals; as you know, I’m an advocate of color and a believer that — in the right hands — neutrals aren’t always neutral. So I was very happy to read Abigail Ahern’s recent posts about decorating with browns.

Why not paint the brick wall green and add in your eclectic mixture of old and new pieces, mixing together wood, chrome, etc? This seems really comfortable and refreshing to me.

We’ve all been seeing the photos of this exquisite villa all over the design blogs for weeks now — I jumped on the bandwagon myself early, with this post titled SALON — but something about this image caught my attention today. What an incredible mix of styles!

This space has such an interesting mix of BroHo (Bohemian from a man’s point of view) and modern; it gives off a very relaxed, semi-luxurious feeling.
