We Spy With Our Designer Eye

Each  Sunday we share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  A design that caught our eye and made us stop and enjoy, like this one shared by Stephan Martinache.  At first glance our mind immediately thinks “what a grand entry”!  With a closer look, we see good interior design makes us look past what we might conceive as imperfections.

Ooooh…Here’s What I Love About This Interior Design!

  • glorious tall ceilings are the home to centuries old plaster moldings
  • dripping with crystals, swagged chandelier is not centered at all!
  • what might have been an ugly metal commercial pair of doors, is featured with an amazing soft charcoal paint
  • the contrasting worn wood, chevron pattern floor, shows years of character of separation and blemishes
  • wall moldings must certainly have layers of white paint patina
  • ooooh the verde color art is just the right addition of color
  • who needs a perfectly intact area rug when a vintage one is so intriguing?
  • open legged, velvet sette is a nice change up from an expected console table
  • wonder if the flea market find equestrian guy is the toy of busy toddler
  • I bet the kissing pair in the photo don’t even know each other…this is France after all

  1. Gosh…talk about opening my eyes with that rug especially. Maybe the distressed trend is coming to home decor too??
    I would never have thought to keep something like that, but with a whole new perspective…why not??

    1. Classic never goes out of style or into “trend”. Still lots of years left on that rug! Today’s post is so indicative of our firms design philosophy…good design is personal, timeless and never perfect. Working with what we have and curating a design always feels right.

  2. Great post, Laurel – I love the vintage rug with all its imperfections speaking to years of use and love. It’s quite wabi-sabi!!! Lxx
