Beautiful and well accomplished vignettes throughout the house are not only pleasant but I believe necessary as well.  They encompass a big chunk of the details and if you think a home is complete without them, think again.  It’s like in fashion where an outfit is never complete without accessories.  I noticed vignettes turn out better when they carry out a theme: whether related to a period time, mood, color scheme, or all of the above.  Enjoy!

To many people it may be unthinkable to know that more people than they think forget about dressing the walls.  They either get scared or intimidated by the thought of Gallery or salon walls or they just don’t know to fill the space.  I guess a simple rule of thumb is to get rid of the idea of perfection end result and any rule for that matter, and consider the conditions of the walls first of all.  If it’s in good condition maybe a good coat of paint or an elegant and simple paint technique before hanging one statement piece would be enough, as in Nicky Haslam Design in the top image, the walls are so beautifully done that a cluster of framed pictures would ruin the whole look.  Beautiful objects such as big mirror, one big painting or an exotic textiles are also simple options.  Of course a gallery wall is always a one step up if you decide to go for it.  Enjoy!

I posted Tino Zervudachi’s home back in February and recently found three more images of his Parisian home and wanted to share with you.  This home is one of my favorites and it stole my heart to keep it.  His elegant and masculine studio above is equally stealing doing it.

Boy what a house this is!  The Parisian home of Tino Zervudachi, partner
at Milinaric, Henry & Zervudachi

is a dream come true.  Full of interesting and classic furniture, modern
art and top notch photography is just what the doctor ordered to everyone who
wants to live with style and substance.  I’m a big fan of 1940’s furniture
and looking at those Jansen pieces Tino Zervudachi has in his home makes my jaw
drops big time!  Enjoy!

A stunning chandelier reigns above a comfort sofa, a modern painting and a
white sculpture on top of a column.

A 1940’s Jansen sofa is freshen up with bright colorful pillows.

Two different Louis XVI chairs juxtapose in front of a steel and bronze
semainier and modern paintings.  Just perfect!

Love how the touch of red on the campaign bed and the mobile makes this room
far from too serious.

This is an amazing bathroom.  Just the coffered ceiling and the red kilim
are enough to take my breath away.
