i love when i get the chance to makeover furniture!
i love it even more when i have the opportunity to do whatever i want and be creative.
when it came time to picking out chairs for my client's office he said, "do what you want!"
(a designer's dream)
i found two old classic chairs in a basement of a brooklyn thrift shop. i used my handy dandy vendors to give these vintage chairs a morgan makeover!
the best part about this makeover...my client loves the finished product!
hola design lovers!
i am happy to share with you a project i was fortunate enough to work on as a junior designer with ghislaine viñas interior design. this project was a few years in the making before i even started at her firm and wasn't finished until after i left her office. it was a complete gut renovation of a gorgeous, four-story, downtown, manhattan penthouse.
the architecture in this space is incredible. every time i was there i felt like i was in an awesome, modern igloo! the clients had great pieces to work with and i envy their art collection...and they were always down for ghislaine's creative creations.
take a look at what i mean!
(images shot by eric laignel, architect: david hotson interior design: ghislaine viñas featured in interior design magazine.)
my first start to this project was working on the master bedroom.
we designed multiple custom wallpapers but in the end went with this
urban inspired paper from flavor paper
then it was finding the ultimate headboard and searching night and day for
the perfect yellow chandelier! turned out pretty awesome if you ask me!
check out the fabulous angled walls!!
a pop of bright color, wouldn't expect anything less from ghislaine!
more angles and glass
did i mention a four-story slide slithers through the entire penthouse?
brilliant?? yes! this image shows the client's library space.
in love with the jaime hayon end chairs. l.o.v.e
i did many searches for the perfect white dining chair...
isn't that art awesome?
multiple renderings were done to get the perfect color scheme for the living area
this guest room went through a lot of designs but i loved the way it turned out
with the incredible digital wall covering from flavor paper!
i forgot to mention this project made the cover!!!
and also the winner of this year's interior design magazine best of year award!
i feel so lucky i had the opportunity to work on this project with such an inspiring designer who is never
afraid to take risks!

we all know i love designing with color...i am after all a color LOVER!!
my yosi samra project has been different for me, i am designing with all black and white! (except for one fabulous blue office :)
i've taken design direction from their black and white logo and i have also tuned into my client yosi who loves rock n' roll and skateboarding.
black and white, rock n' roll and skateboarding...awesome design direction if you ask me!
below are some sneak peeks at i've what i have brewing over at their west soho headquarters.
i seriously have awesome clients who i feel SO blessed to be working with. their brand is amazing and i am thrilled to be apart of their new diggs. the project is coming together and so far i am under budget which is always a good thing! i can't wait to show you all the finished project but for now here are some goodies to hold you over.
this post is a "i'm sorry i've been a bad blogger" kinda post.
i lost my blogging mojo at the beginning of september! i had just quit my job and took off for a week in dubai. after the dubai trip it was a non stop crazy week with hey,hey!gorgeous. at new york fashion week (shame on me for not even putting up all those great pictures from nyfw). immediately following fashion week i took off for chile for ten days!! literally two days after getting home i started my yosi samra project which has kept me extremely busy and i am loving every minute of it.
i know being busy isn't an excuse i have just been so distracted i've been neglecting my blog.
i plan on jumping back in asap!
hope you still love design my heart out even though it's been hibernating a bit lately.
know that i still love you!
i was in the mood to add a new wallpaper to my laptop...
had to share some of the images that inspire my creativity, i also had to put my favorite designer front and center! i love your work mr. www.guilhermetorres.com
