Okay, first off, this is not so much a portfolio review as a post about one specific project of Mr Call Designs — the NYC-based interior design firm of Jon Call, whose relaxed/refined masculine style is nothing short of extra-terrific. Doing a little sleuthing on his Facebook page led me to learn that he’s recently been in Austin; small world…

This project is in the West Village and shows off some amazing skills; from space planning to the selection of furnishings and that terrific color palette, this has to be one of my favorite tours in quite some time.

First, Mr Call himself:

Now, the West Village apartment:

This fireplace with a waterfall mantle treatment is a favorite of mine from Mr Call Designs. | japanesetrash.com

This fireplace with a waterfall mantle treatment is a favorite design; it brings to mind a similar fireplace designed by Thomas O’Brien. Classic and timeless American design.

This shot of the living space shows off the terrific color palette and begins to give a hint at the amazing space planning. Hint: there’s a bedroom on the other side of the slatted screen/wall on the left.

Masterful space planning allows the living room to be converted for dining as needed. Mr Call Designs | japanesetrash.com

The living room can easily accommodate dining when required, thanks to smart furniture choices and great space planning.

A perfect retreat is hidden behind the slatted screen/wall; love these textiles. Mr Call Designs | japanesetrash.com

These textiles, the paint color, and the bedside lamp turn this intimate bedroom space into something really special.

Unless you’ve been under a rock this morning, you’ll already have learned that George Clooney got married in Italy over the weekend. Sites are filled with images from the wedding, and I figured now is as good a time as any to do a quick George Clooney house tour post–this one featuring his home in Baja Mexico, designed by Legorreta + Legorreta.

Like the man himself, the entire house is relaxed and stylish. And handsome, of course. This living room seems something of an afterthought to me — but who needs it when there’s a gorgeous pool just steps away?

This is where I'd spend most of my indoor (waking) time, were I George Clooney's guest--his bar. | japanesetrash.com

Terrific woods in this sleek, contemporary kitchen. The low-maintenance floor is a smart decision, too.
