Dallas interior designer Lisa Luby Ryan is the creative mastermind behind this incredible kitchen transformation…she specializes in blending Swedish, French, and Italian antiques & found objects with modern conveniences to satisfy today’s busy lifestyle…her sophisticated monochromatic palette effortlessly echos the ethereal beauty of Swedish antiques yet in a fresh and modern way…notice the changes she has made to achieve this lighter than air kitchen…

The ceiling beams have been bleached to soften their impact and blend better with the antique island and natural beauty of the new stone floor…the counter top and back splash are now a lovely gray and white veined marble playing off the gray tones in the floor and the new wall color…in the dining area she chose a round table echoing the beautiful aged patina of the kitchen island and four sculptural skirted wing chairs upholstered in a natural linen similar to the wall color…lastly, I love the feminine touch of the crystal chandelier…some sparkle for a chic and romantic touch…wow, now that’s a makeover!

p.s. – Do you love the white dishes on the island shelves and on the wall? A European nod to open shelving without changing the existing cabinetry…brilliant!

From a single orchid to a mantel overflowing with greenery, today’s post is filled with festive floral ideas for your home. My favorite is the mantel above from Southern Accents ~ miniature cedar trees inside a collection of silver goblets with fresh moss and green lady apples ~ elegant and simple! Enjoy!

Yesterday’s post featured the ultra chic Miles Redd and his iconic mirrored master bathroom. I couldn’t help but think about mirrors and the important role they play in architecture and interior design. From grand to petite, circular to linear, simple to ornate, they have the power to transform a space from dull to dazzling. I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite mirrored interiors! Enjoy!

“A pair of undulating lily-motif mirrors, crafted in bronze and copper by Claude Lalanne for the upstairs music room, led, between 1974 and 1985, to the proliferation of over a dozen more, floor to ceiling. “I can’t live in a room without mirrors,” Saint Laurent said. “If there aren’t any, the room is dead.” The effect in the music room of their multiplying reflections was vertiginous—a touch of Mad Ludwig of Bavaria, as seen through the lens of Luchino Visconti.” ~ Amy Fine Collins for Vanity Fair

This month’s Veranda features a lovely holiday home renovated and decorated by Dallas interior designer Lisa Luby Ryan. I was so impressed with the palette, furnishings and styling that I decided to post about her Dallas boutique, Vintage Living. French, Italian, and Swedish antiques mingle with found objects, accessories and custom furnishings. She describes her look as “monochromatic sophistication with a touch of chic”. I look forward to sharing her holiday interiors with you in the coming weeks. Until then, enjoy these photos from Vintage Living!
