The Natural Distinct Structure Home Design

This house is really inspiring home design. Two stone structures surround a glass pavilion within a wooded landscape. The concept of this residence was to create three distinct structures: one for the most public programs (entry space, garage and guest bedrooms), one for the most private living programs and one where “public” and private can co-exist.



Each space has an outdoor terrace or some special connection to the site while the roof of the glass pavilion folds beyond one’s cone of vision to create the feeling of being outside. The building is made of all natural materials with a 100-year lifespan and features an underground spring-fed water furnace HVAC system.

A celebration of CHINTZ with Albert Hadley

On Wednesday I attended an invitation by Joel Woodard whose wife is Susan North, Sr. VP of Design for Schumacher, to "A Celebration of Chintz" at Schumacher in the D&D building to honor the legendary Albert Hadley. Susan has been working for the past year with Hadley to reproduce a beautiful English chintz he first used in Mrs. Nancy Pyne's house more than 40 years ago. As life would have it, after 40 years Mrs. Pyne still had in her possession faded remnants of the fabric which she lent Schumacher to reproduce. The fabric is offered in very chic shades of charcoal, pale grey and ivory, and a crisp indigo blue and white, and a soft sepia-hued colorway. The fabric is made of a lightly calendared fine cotton ground that gives it that light glow and makes you want to sleep in it because of its softness. This Chintz fabric called "Pyne Hollyhock Print" is absolutely gorgeous because the flowers are not of the typical small size but big and don't overwhelm. Unfortunately I am a little bit of a procrastinator and by the time I asked for a sample they were gone but you can see the fabric here. You can see pictures of the event here.

The most important moment of the night for me was when I had the pleasure of meeting Hadley. I can't honestly explain how someone of his status has managed to keep so grounded. He is incredibly humble and sweet. We briefly talked about Parsons, design in general and the Pyne Hollyhock print. We shared some laughs after I recited one of my favorite quotes by him "you can never do anything for a slob."


“But names really are not the point,” he says. “It’s what you can achieve for the simplest person. Glamour is part of it, but glamour is not the essence. Design is about discipline and reality, not about fantasy beyond reality.” Albert Hadley

I guess this quote by Albert Hadley can explain my answer to how he has remained humble and grounded. Two of the main qualities of class that are priceless.

The statement piece

Every room should have a piece that makes an impact and it doesn't necessarily need to be a piece of furniture, it could also be a sculpture. Like in these living areas below, the statement is brought into the room by big busts. They also add drama to the room.

Feminine and Masculine


The use of pink, gilded mirror combined with brown leather chairs and over sized rustic cocktail table make this room suitable for a man and a woman coexist in harmony.

Thanks to MFAMB for reminding me that this house belongs to Ann Duong.

A glamorous mess

A glamorous life implies many things, one main element is owning good quality, personal accessories such as, chic sunglasses, exclusive business cards cases, good pens and so on. Louis Vuitton has never been on top of my list but I love how these ads of Sofia Coppola's designs for Louis Vuitton portray how even messy and disorganized glamorous things look fabulous.

Men's Aloha Shirts

Travel Smith has just added two new men's Aloha shirts. Choose from either luau style above or blue pineapples. With Father's Day fast approaching, they would make great gifts.

Women Portraits


I remember when I saw Sofia Coppola's home (above) at House and Garden. I can't believe one of my favorite magazines is not around anymore. Anyhow, I still dream about this room. The sculptural table, the zebra rug, the vintage chair and of course the Elizabeth Peyton painting call my name, I mean isn't this room timeless? Don't you still love it? women portraits can certainly bring that vintage touch into a room.
