anders zorn 1

 Today’s post focuses on the humble yet sublime palette from In Wikström’s Studio painted by Anders Zorn in 1889. Layered earth tones of stone, clay and putty provide a subtle backdrop for his female subject’s luminous gold skin and vibrant red hair. To some, this palette may appear quite neutral, void of “color” if you will, but for me, this highly sophisticated canvas speaks to all that I love about color and texture. It has opened my eyes to an infinite number of artistic possibilities…

HW 13

In styling my home for the holidays, I’m finding great inspiration from natural colors and textures…although this gorgeous Hallberg-Wisely designed interior is void of traditional holiday decorations, it does incorporate “green” gestures that, for me, feel fresh, festive and ready for a party! Here’s hoping this artistic gem offers you some new (and natural) ideas as you style your home for the holidays…wishing you a very happy weekend!

It should come as no surprise to me that I would fall head over heels in love with Richard Shapiro’s Malibu retreat…I have adored his work for as long as I can remember so when this magical home appeared on the pages of Architectural Digest, it was just another wow moment for me to take in…Shapiro worked closely with architect Douglas Burdge to create a home that feels altogether ancient and modern at the same time…let’s take a closer look at the details

Living Room ~ pristine steel windows enhance the rough beauty of frescoed plaster walls…4 Shapiro designed chairs happily co-exist with a 17th century Italian gilt-wood mirror and antique Cypriot fireplace

Kitchen ~ Basalt (a volcanic stone) and black lacquer cabinets combine to create a dramatic statement in the kitchen…the linen covered sofa is custom fitted to the alcove…how romantic!

Quite possibly the most artful staircase I have ever seen! The steel balustrade winds up to the master bedroom and bath…what an effortless marriage of wood, stone and steel…truly a masterpiece!

A timber staircase was designed to resemble the weathered ramparts of a Moroccan fort…pure genius!

Library ~ A daybed covered in mismatched stripes creates a cozy nook for reading in the corner of the library…table is 15th century Italian…painting is by Shapiro
