Ok does anyone else remember Thom Filicia from a the TV show Queer Eye for a Straight Guy? He was the interior designer who helped them turn their drab houses into something resembling livable! Well I thought I would just share with you his small humble house by the lake...
I love his accent of black used through out like the doors, staircase rails and metal- it looks fantastic against the light wood and the whites.
Great mix of modern and country kitchen, and I love the rug! (though he must be a cleaner cook then I am!)
LOVE LOVE LOVE! that table and metal lamp! So gorgeous!
How gorgeous is the cobbled stone fire place- definitely can see myself reading in front of that for hours on end!
This is my favourite shot- look at that view! I love the mexican fire, all I need are some fur throws, a glass of red and friends!
I also love his other design work. Here are some of my favourite shots from his portfolio. How great is this oasis?
I love these chairs and table.
Such a soothing room, fantastic side chairs and also LOVE the glass and mesh wall- though you do have to be clean when you have guests over as they can see everything! But it is a great way of giving semi privacy and increasing deepth perception...
I love this chest of draws amazing! Oh and want a set of those peacocks!
What a great way to create a feature in a small space..
I am all about his chair choice... I love these as well and love the stripped back stone wall firplace.
This last house is my favourite I love the use of deep rich pink in this entry...
I think my best friend needs this sculpture... :)
And again it is the chairs, how great is the pink chair and the great two side tables....
And a very chic nursery...
How amazingly talented is he? He really has brightened my day and inspired me on this cold and glommy friday... oh and can I please have that Lake House?!
Thanks to Wide Open Spaces blog who posted about his lake house and made me investigate his work more!xox
