Hua Trees by Sian Zeng
Contemporary design often incorporates international motifs and influences, however the very best and most captivating somehow seems to manage to also use traditional artisan or craft traditions to create new and innovative objects and design items. One such standout example is Sian Zeng, a London based designer who imaginatively recreates space using traditional Chinese techniques and imagery within modern day interiors.

MyLove Affair with Swans
I never really thought about swans -as a decorative element, or a favorite animal until my daughter requested a stuffed swan for her birthday -and I was astounded by how hard it was to find a nicely made one -I had to order one from Germany. I realized in fact they were the perfect bird for the animal crazy primary schooler -and they can add a touch of sophistication and the vintage as well. I hope you will be absolutely inspired by this collection of beautiful artistic designs, antiques, and eclectic swan decor items.

Discover Decorating Ideas-Mixing Modern with Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs
Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places. Many of the rugs while they reflect regional traditions including Persian decorative elements and Islamic architecture are made for export and show an admixture of signs, motifs, patterns, and artistic additions.
In no way would one wish to classify these contemporary works of art as “reproductions” or knock offs but rather a continuation of the rich artistic cultures of these amazing designers, weavers and artists. It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.

If you live in a farmhouse style home or maybe an NYC apartment that has seen better days, add an abstract Moroccan style rug for a layered eclectic look and Bohemian flair. Love the contrast of black painted floors with the cream ground of this beautiful geometric woven carpet.
Here we see a lovely mix of a more traditional rug with an updated office chair, dark walls, industry style unfinished floor, and a farmhouse style desk. Wonderful!

A mix of high modern and traditional has an eclectic feel, and is made bright by the canvas like walls, So gorgeous, one can imagine spending hours here with friends and family, reading a book or catching up over tea…

Richness seems a theme here, the beautiful sheepskin throw, ornate patterns on the rug and pillows, offset by white walls, and the cozy feel of a lived space, books, plants and a reading lamp…

Project X took me out of my comfort zone is the best of ways… I was thrilled to help a friend and former client develop the glamorous decor and design theme of her very daring home. She wanted something that was Hollywood Regency style but updated and maybe a little over the top in a way that only goes in Vegas. After all, X is a Vegas performer and well, probably one of the most interesting people I have ever met.
This blog is simply a series of mood boards made for X, I am excited to share these collages of sorts because making them was a real adventure for me and they remain visually entrancing…
Dedicated to X and the many risk taking performers, performance artists and adventurers all over the world.
*Please note I do not post pictures of client’s or friend’s homes in the interest of protecting their privacy.
This collection was inspired by the indigos by Sister Parrish Designs and Ann Wood’s Handmade Birds, and a series of absolutely deliciously cozy and beautiful sofas…could spend hours reading, writing, talking, cuddling…
Rich blues, smoky slates with plum notes, grayish wedgewood tones, indigos, all seem modern and traditional, allowing a richness, and comfort. Please enjoy these ideas, rooms and combinations of blue by some of my favorite stylists and publications.
