One of my favorite homes # 2: J. Randall Powers

 This is the shot that was used in the cover of Elle Decor.  The cabinet and coffee table were designed by Powers.

Now that we’re moving into a new home, I’ve been revising my favorite homes and this one designed by J. Randall Powers is one of those.  One of my favorite things about this home is how none of the furniture actually relate to each other but the combination of all of them is pure genius, fresh and elegant.  How is it that Elle Decor described it? “Cool and Elegant”. The image above made the cover of Elle Decor magazine when the house was published and no wonder why… J. Randall Powers style is one that is transitional.  He perfectly combines furniture of different styles and eras and make them look cohesive and most importantly livable.  His interiors are free of excess and useless items instead they are full of comfort looking items.

Lovely composition of upholstered, bare wood and mirrored furniture.   The symmetry in the art and convex mirror brings stability to the informality of the furniture placement.

Klismos is my all time favorite chair and this interpretation of it is calling me.

Soothing tones and elegant furniture.

I love how he uses earthy tones yet the outcome is far from boring or dull.

Love this corner

Love the elegant touch of the book placed in the niche bookcase.  Randall kept the lower side of the room dark and white on the walls.

Lovely elegant white bathroom.  If you notice the chosen details are simple and very obtainable but beautiful is found in the beauty of simplicity.

  • They're indeed lovely. But I do prefer to have lesser stuffs in my house. Though beautiful decorations are really beautiful, still simplicity is always the best. I do adore your taste by the way.
