SUSAN:

“I loved the frayed burlap walls in both of the Master Suite Reprieves by Randy Heller’s Pure & Simple Interior Design. I had the same treatment on the walls in the den of my previous home and I loved it – so much texture and visual interest.

Also, as a non-bird lover, I’m surprised to say that I adored the chairs in the Scott Yerkey’s Family Room with bird fabric upholstery. So fun!

The chocolate brown high gloss ceiling in the entry of Shelley Johnstone Design’s foyer was very unexpected and so elegant.

Jeannie Balsam’s bedroom was adorable. The mix of same scale patterns in bright and girly colors was perfect for the space.

In the West Entrance/Upper Hall by LRS Interiors, the leather trim on the window treatments and oversized nailheads on the stair runner were small elements that really added to the rich feel of the space. It’s all in the details!”

BETH:

“The abstract plasterwork in Michael Del Piero’s Garden Room. Using the traditional plasterwork from the ceiling as inspiration, the design of the walls’ plaster detail was much more contemporary. It gave the space such a soft, natural feel to the space.

The kitchen by Christopher Peacock Home was stunning overall but I loved the brass details on the oversized range hood.

Of course, the crimson lacquer built-ins in the nursery by steve+filip deisgns, inc were a huge statement… that I loved! So much fun. And the idea of using it as diaper storage was so creative.”

LAUREN:

“Walking into the Midnight Sun LTD’s main level Coat/Powder Room off the foyer, I was in awe of the oversized light fixture. The unique scale was such an unexpected element in a small space.

The rectangular, skirted tables in Soledad Zitzewitz’s Dining Room were beautiful – and super trendy right now! I love that they’re light and feminine yet crisp and architectural.

Another favorite of mine is the Francine Turk artwork in Kim Scodro Interiors’ Master Bedroom. In such a soft space, the artwork was bold and attention grabbing. I loved it!”

JENNIFER:

“I was enamored by the crystal chandelier hung over a console table in the Master Bedroom. Rather than the expected center of the space, the location of the fixture was so special.

The black and white photography going all the way up to the ceiling in the Den by Walker Simmons Designs was such a great way to draw the eye up in this space. I loved that!

Also, in Randy Heller’s Master Bathroom I loved the framed artwork mounted on steel rods on the window frame. What a cool idea for art display…and substitute for window treatments!”
