I love to have tons of magazines for summer reading and, of course, the design magazines are my favorites. For me, the magazines are about looking for things that really stand out and inspire me, and in the August 2014 issue of Architectural Digest, I found so much inspiration in an editorial titled “Sky’s the Limit.” The article features a NYC residence designed by Jean-Louis Deniot. Jean-Louis is so gifted. He has the classical architecture but throws in a curve ball with the way he mixes various elements. The design of this apartment is made by all of the incredible details. There are so many intricate pieces that make up the overall design; I’ll probably go back to this article six or seven times to digest every little detail. The superb Art Deco-inspired railing in the living room, for example, is a truly custom design that immediately caught my eye, as did the amazing art. Other pieces that stand out for me as being really well executed are the bar cabinet and the window treatment fabric in the living room. Work like this makes me want to be a better designer. What have you seen lately that’s inspired you?
