At a time when a lot of design magazines leave me feeling less than enchanted, the last issue of Veranda was a home run. Especially the feature on the new Alessandra Branca designed spaces at Windsor, Florida. HEAVEN. Such great design in such a beautiful location. I can so see myself here in 25 years in my J.Jill leisure separates sipping wine at 3 p.m.– glorious.
Loving this combo of red, pink and blue. Such an interesting combination done so elegantly. Loving that photograph over the sofa too!
Admittedly, I have not had time lately to peruse Pinterest that much for inspiration. We’ve been so busy that taking time to just observe has been a luxury. Last night I did however, and ended up down a rabbit hole of inspiration and landed squarely on Tim Barber’s portfolio and could not believe how many inspirational spaces I found on his site. His clear respect for the beauty and detail of old homes mixed with interiors by some of the best names in California interior design makes for a totally overwhelmingly gorgeous grouping of work! Feast your eyes on these awe-inspiring homes:
This entire home top to bottom is insanely good. Interiors by Artistic Designs For Living. Photos by Laura Hull.
It’s a week of fun reveals here at EOS/EGD! Today I finally get to share with you our new professional website (www.eringatesdesign.com) and branding for our design services and business! While blogging, product designing and book writing are a lot more public facing– the design business is my bread and butter and what I spend most time on day in and day out. So it was high time we had a website that reflected that (and I plan to redo the blog to coordinate, but I gotta save some pennies for that!)
I chose Hanna Seabrook from Gadabout Creative to design everything as I have always LOVED her work (and Instagram feed) and knew that our aesthetics meshed really well and that despite the distance, she would just “know” what I wanted without me having to explain everything in detail. And she did!
So please check out the new site…a little more about it here:
A clean new logo and monogram emblem that I want to put on errrrrrrrything.
While I do have a book that catalogs most of these projects, they are split up by room type. Here you can see them all in their entirety.
Susie Homemaker I am not (it may be pretty, but not always tidy), but there are some little gadgets we have at home that really are amazing at making life easier and that I see as really valuable investments in our hectic, busy lives. I thought I’d share them here in case perhaps you needed recommendations or have your own life-saving device to enlighten us all about!
I hesitated to buy this Dyson cordless hand vacuum for a long time and tried cheaper versions that sucked (or actually, didn’t suck!) This thing is AMAZING. It acts as a dust-buster and powerful vacuum all in one- amazing for easy cleanups or a quick clean before company comes. INCREDIBLE if you have kids and dogs. I have clients who keep one on every floor of their house. For my smaller house, one is fine. :)
My jaw fell open yesterday when spotting this spread in August’s Vogue on Marina Rust’s Charlottesville, Virginia home. Talk about a classic, stunning country house. I want to see MORE, but alas there were only a few images.
