INSPIRED BY… ART
Our stylist Christan is dropping by to tell us what… and who… is inspiring her right now.
Did I mention that this is a drawing?!
I’ve been surviving the winter blues by dreaming of the blue ocean in summer. I have a good friend who is, besides being a lovely person, extremely multi talented. She likes to do drawings of the ocean, sounds quaint right? But, Liana Repass’ drawings aren’t cute… they are the ocean, and like the ocean they are powerful, tumultuous, daunting, and stunning, but at the same time they are also majestic, fascinating, alluring, and calming.
The ocean is my refuge, my recharge, my sanctuary, so I’ve put together a room that feels like you are engulfed in the sea, the same way looking at one of Liana’s paintings makes you feel. Enjoy!

FASHION. We’re constantly inspired. Inspired by fashion, art, architecture, travel, literature, and well, everything we see. In this ongoing series, we’ll take you on the journey to create a stylish, inspirational space. This time, the subject is on fashion. There’s a real love affair when it comes to clothes and decor. What a better time to be inspired by fashion than during New York Fashion Week, right?
In our inaugural post, our attention is on our fabulously frocked copywriter, Jordan, who always manages to combine feminine whimsy and edge. Her outfits scream modern with a traditional twist. So, when she showed up in this outfit, we knew we had to turn it into a room. And, to anchor that room, we turned to the black leather Gordon Tufted Sofa, the traditional Chesterfield sofa that’s made a triumphant return on the scene.
But what’s a room without a rug? To bring in the floral pattern of the dress, it’s all about the tried and true Lavish Area Rug in Eggplant. This bold hand-tufted wool area rug is finished with pieces that reflect style—mirrored surfaces, high-gloss finishes and plenty of texture. Get the scoop on this room:
