I’ve been revisiting some of my favorite spaces for inspiration lately and I realized that so many of them are designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber. I die for this room. Okay, I die for all of these rooms. (I mean, they are some of my favorite of all time, after all!) No one mixes colors and …

Billy Baldwin’s l’Arbre de Matisse

So I had a huge “duh” moment when a reader (thanks, Sheila!) let me know that the mystery wallpaper in the Bosch/Ballard Model Home that I posted about last week is Billy Baldwin’s l’Arbre de Matisse by Quadrille. The pattern was inspired by that Matisse hanging above the sofa. Both Matisse and Billy Baldwin are only …

Ideas from Restaurant and Bar Design Awards

I was checking out the entries for the UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards and found so many good designs that could be translated for the home.
