The May-June 2012 issue of Veranda was waiting for me when I arrived home from High Point…a welcome surprise for my weary eyes! Two must-sees ~ the 12 page spread featuring a Darryl Carter designed Washington DC home and this Hollywood Hills home, designed by Kathleen Clements Design and Briggs Edward Solomon Design…gallons of Benjamin Moore Super White paint transformed this 1950s California ranch house into a clean-lined, light filled shell…with an almost gallery-like atmosphere, the carefully curated selection of antiques and art command attention and rightfully so…take for example the Gustavian bench upholstered in Schumacher silk taffeta with a bolster in C&C Milano velvet…against a stark white backdrop, its artful details take center stage…a piece of art to be adored and lived with…

“In the way that a perfect mat magnifies a painting’s impact in a frame, the house’s white background lets a judicious selection of spare furnishings and fine-boned antiques shine.” ~ an excerpt from the Veranda article written by Degen Pener

Every month I look forward to Elle Decor’s feature titled 12 things he (or she) can’t live without! This month, we discover some interesting tidbits about one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, Diane Keaton…notorious for flipping houses, Keaton includes The Melrose Project, located on Melrose in Los Angeles, on her short list of favorites…

“The Melrose Project is a unique collection of the country’s most distinctive and distinguished dealers and artists from the world of antiques, fine art, rugs, and contemporary furnishings.  With pieces from each contributing member thoughtfully installed in a single shared space, curators Tommy Clements and Kathleen Clements present new stories month after month outside of the literal boundaries of design.”

Please enjoy some inspiring vignettes from this ever changing world of art and design!
