these spaces are all on the sophisticated end of the design spectrum, but i also sense a touch of whimsy that sets them apart from something too sophisticated and unwelcoming. there’s playful artwork, sculpture and lighting fixtures, fur and fringe, and an unexpected placement and scale of furniture — i guess what i’d call good design without any boring old rules. there’s also great attention to the details without a lot of fuss — like shapes and texture and a wonderful uniquely personal mix of modern meets vintage to achieve an effortless look that’s truly eclectic.
