I love taking advantage of the wonderful things that Boston has to offer. Last night I went to the Opera House, to see Boston Ballet’s performance of World Passions. It is described as “an evening of variety and innovation from four international choreographers with unique visions and perspectives”. It was an amazing perfomance, by some incredible dancers….bravo to the Boston Ballet talent! http://bostonballet.org/explorebb/videos/world-passions.html
I will be designing a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath unit, located on the 20th floor. The views are spectacular,with floor to ceiling walls of glass on 2 sides of the unit. I will be using some amazing furniture pieces from the Holly Hunt collection, http://www.hollyhunt.com available here in Boston through the premier showroom at the Boston Design Center, http://bostondesign.com , Webster & Company. Webster & Company, run by the extraordinary Peter Webster, represents unbelievably gorgeous lines of furniture, fabrics, wallcoverings, lighting. floor coverings and accessories, all housed in a showroom I would love to move right into! http://www.webstercompany.com
The W Boston is going to be one hot spot, also featuring a new restaurant by world famous chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, http://jean-georges.com , called Market. Stay tuned for more on this exciting project from Eric Roseff Designs.
I had the extreme pleasure of being asked by Bloomingdale’s in Chestnut Hill, to participate in an event that they were doing yesterday, to introduce the new line of black crystal by Lalique, called Le Noir. The presentation was being given by Craig Zehms, National Spokesperson for Lalique. Craig is an amazing guy, with a wealth of knowledge. I was asked to talk about the use of black in interior design. It was a great opportunity to discuss interior design, which I love to do, and to become better acquainted with the amazing products of Lalique. They have some extraordinary pieces, which I was truly blown away by. Rene Lalique was a master, having been called the best glass designer of the 20th century. I am posting some of my favorite pieces from the Le Noir collection…the little black dresses of the glass world!
These tiles from Blake Studios, in Vermont, are beyond gorgeous. The undulating reliefs, the patterns, and the colors are spectacular. These are really unique. I would use them as a focal wall/mural in a shower, or as a fireplace surround. They are not inexpensive (but oh so worth it!), so you could always use a few, as decorative accents with a more simple field tile. They are from the Ann Sacks showroom.
I am planning to use the blog to discuss all things design related…and perhaps some not! We all find inspiration in so many different places, objects, and people. I look forward to sharing my design inspirations, and favorite resources with you. I recently filmed a segment for NECN’s Dreamhome, on what is new in bathroom design. It was filmed at the Boston Design Center, at some wonderful showrooms…Billie Brenner Ltd., Ann Sacks, Paris Ceramics, Porcelanosa, and Waterworks. The show begins to air today, on NECN. You can also see it online, at necn.com and on the Boston Design Center’s website, bostondesign.com Look for the BDC Stylewatch segment. Be sure to check out these websites, as well: billiebrennerltd.com, annsacks.com, parisceramicsusa.com, porcelanosa-usa.com, waterworks.com I will also post some of the exciting new products that I selected to feature for this segment. I will also be back to talk about and upcoming talk that I am giving at Bloomingdale’s, along with Craig Zehms, national spokesperson for Lalique. He will be introducing Lalique’s new line, Le Noir, and I will be discussing the use of the color black in interior design. So, welcome to my new blog, and stick with me while I get the hang of it! Have a great day, and I hope you find inspiration in something today!
