Editor's note: Today I am in a dress by Carven and shoes by Aquazurra.
Happy Thursday! We are having a change of schedule this week and going to Dallas today. Scott Kravet is in town for a presentation at the showroom in Dallas about the inspiration and history of the Modern Tailored collection. I had the pleasure of being on a trip to New York with Cary Kravet in January 2017. I was one of about 20 people from around the country who where treated to a wonderful “National Design Education Experience” in New York for being top producers with Kravet, Lee Jofa, and Brunschwig & Fils. I met incredible people and was wined and dined. It was such a treat that I will never forget. Kravet is celebrating it’s 100 year birthday this year and this next generation of the Kravet family is truly carrying on the wonderful tradition of fabulous fabrics and furnishings. I have met Scott Kravet on several instances and look forward to seeing him today. He is coming to Fort Worth tomorrow to see my new studio. What an honor! This is one hard working and dedicated family who really puts their heart and soul into their family business.
Today’s article comes from the May issue of Architectural Digest. This 1930s house in Palm Springs gets a face lift from Jacques Grange. The house was originally designed by architects John L. Volk and Gustav Maass in the 30s for a wealthy young couple from Chicago. Among the many wonderful architectural features in the house are tiles that were sourced from Seville and Barcelona. Amazing! The house is fondly known as La Loma which is Spanish for “the hill.” The original owners called it “Casa Tia Flora.” The current owner met Jacques Grange in the 1980s and has used him ever since. Enjoy this incredible house and have a super day.
The architectural details in this room are astounding!!! The fire place is magnificent and that ceiling!!!! WOW!!!! I love the use of the fig leaf patterned fabric from Peter Dunham bringing the pout doors in.
Now this is quite a mixture of style and textures going on !!!! The vintage rattan bar stools and armchairs are so fitting for Palm Beach. The bar is custom . The cocktail table by Guy De Rougemont has such a unique shape.
A glorious view of the pool and exterior.
More jaw dropping features in the dining room. That ceiling......what a work of art. The cinquefoil arched windows are too stunning to cover up. The venetian chandelier has such a presence.
The kitchen range is by Officine Gullo...which I have never seen before. What a piece of jewelry in the kitchen to go along with the Portuguese tile.
What a staircase!!!!! The architectural details were thankfully retained by the many owners over the years. The Hispano-Moorish flair of the house is so unique and glorious.
Gorgeous entry with the stained glass windows and stone surrounds.
I love this moment in the master bedroom. The desk is Brazilian and the green front desk is vintage American. The drapery fabric is a fabulous print from Pierre Frey that I used all over a room in a job in Palm Springs. I recognized it instantly!!
This master bath is also original to the house. These Persian ceramic tiles are what dreams are made of! Just spectacular!!!!!!!!!!
What looks to be bougainvillea bushes everywhere are breathtaking. This looks like a movie set!
Love, LOVE THIS!
Dinner last night was salmon and leftover black whole peas.
This song makes me happy!
