It’s no secret I’m slightly obsessed with Mindy Kaling. She is hilarious and so relate-able. If you haven’t read one of her books yet, you’re really missing out. She recently purchased and renovated a home in Hancock Park and just like her personality, it’s very bold. Working with interior designer Katie Ridder, the end result is lovely. Take a look:

Lately I keep noticing stunning shots with Serge Mouille’s famous three arm chandelier. Whether it’s legit or a reproduction, you have to admit, this light makes a statement. While the Design Within Reach model will run you $6759, this reproduction is much more affordable (and just as fabulous).
Gosh… I think we need one.

If you’ve been in the design world for five minutes, you are probably a die hard fan of Kelly Wearstler. Anything she touches turns to gold and her new collection with Ann Sacks is no exception. The Kitchen Bath Industry Show is happening right now in Vegas and I am dying at shots from the AS booth. Look at this install shot of the Maven:
How stunning is that tile? I can barely take it. Here are a few others:
I’m almost speechless. Like I said yesterday, I’m going to spec this like Oprah: “You get Kelly Wearstler! and YOU get Kelly Wearstler!” Bravo my friend. It’s stunning.

This has been floating around social media this week and I have to say, I’m always intrigued when it comes to Oprah. Although it’s not my taste, I’m always down to peek in a mountain home. Check out Oprah’s vacation residence in Telluride, Colorado:

I stumbled upon the portfolio of Patrick Mele this weekend and oh my. I am swooning. His work is fantastic, and although his site is currently down for construction, check out these dreamy images:

Have you seen this stunning bath floating around Pinterest from Meredith Heron Design? Well today I’m breaking it down with another installment of “How to Get the Look.” You need a pretty scalloped mirror, shaded bath sconces, a carrera marble like top, some brushed brass fixtures and a great hexagon tile floor. Easy, right? For the counter tops, per usual I recommend Caesarstone’s Frost Carrina. It’s a quartz look alike to Carrera marble without the maintenance hassle. For the vanity, I would paint it Benjamin Moore’s Toucan Black. From there, add your brushed brass fixtures, this amazing scalloped mirror, sconces, and Daltile’s hexagon floor. What a perfect powder bath!

It’s no secret I’m a Nate Berkus fan. His latest spread in Architectural Digest is to die for. Per usual, it’s perfection and located on lower Fifth in Manhattan, one of the dreamiest parts of the city. Take a look at this Greenwich Village gem:
That master bath and kitchen nearly render me speechless. Wow.

Catching up on design reads last week led to the discovery of Megan Winters. A Chicago based designer who’s only been in business since 2009, Megan has accomplished a tremendous amount. She is no stranger to risks and bold uses of color: my favorite type of design.
Do yourself a favor and check out her portfolio. Her work is quite impressive.
Happy Monday to you!

Actor Mike Meyers is selling his Mercer street penthouse condo in New York. This 4200 sq foot apartment has 14 foot ceilings, a dreamy terrace and very tasteful finishes. If I were to live in NYC, I would love this location. He purchased it in 2007 for a cool 7.9 million. It’s now listed at $16.95 million.
Absolutely stunning. There is not a thing I would change about this condo. Who knew Austin Powers had such good taste?!

I’ve already professed my love for Ann Sacks.
It’s hands down my favorite vendor.
I always start there, and then find my surrounding pieces.
Well, the always impressive Martyn Lawrence Bullard has a new collection with them and to say it’s perfection is an understatement. The Mousharabia is inspired by caved wood latticework and I’m already plotting to put it in my parent’s beach house. The colors are amazing. Eastern Promise is a Moroccan line that I already have placed in my newest project in Houston. To top it off he added subtle patterns to an already favorite antique mirrored tile.
Make sure you check it out. If you’ve never shopped Ann Sacks, you’re missing out!
