More Decorating from Tom Scheerer

Tom Scheerer: More Decorating is out and if you loved his first book, you'll love this one even more 馃槏!  Ever since I received my copy compliments of Vendome Press, I've been pouring through it every few days.  Divided in to three sections, Town, Summer and The Tropics, it features 16 of his latest projects. The book is beautifully designed and full of so many double page layouts that allow you to feel like you're peering right in to the room. Along with the perfection of the photography by Francesco Lagnese, the art-layout/direction is just sooo good.

Event - Rebloom on the Roof

If you're in the DC area, there's an amazing charity event taking place May 16th - a cocktail fundraiser for Room to Rebloom! They do amazing work creating healing environments for survivors of domestic violence. Each year, "Rebloom on the Roof" aims to successfully raise enough money to outfit an entire apartment for a survivor.  Check out their amazing projects here.  This year's event will take place at La Vie Restaurant's rooftop penthouse overlooking DC's new Wharf District waterfront and will feature light fare, signature cocktails, a silent auction, designer sample sale, Kendra Scott pop-up shop, dessert station and more.

At Home: Isabel L贸pez-Quesada at Home

I first blogged about Isabel L贸pez-Quesada back in 2012 so I was very excited when Vendome Press offered me a chance to review her first book,  At Home: Isabel L贸pez-Quesada at Home.  The book details her Madrid and French homes  and is complete with vivid photography by Miguel Flores-Vianna.  

Her signature design aesthetic is inspiring and, along with gorgeous interiors, the reader is treated to lush courtyards and gardens. I'm a fan of her strong emphasis on the texture and patina of the architecture and her spare but strong use of textiles and accessories to accent the spaces.

Here are a few iPhone snaps from the book. 


There's also a two page illustration spread of her Madrid home  - below is a snippet. 

Now I've got my fingers crossed that Isabel will release a second book featuring her
work with clients!

This Kitchen!

It's been so long I almost couldn't remember my blog password but I just had to share this kitchen by DC based Ally Banks Interiors. Maybe you've seen it?  I just came across it and my first thought was "this kitchen wins the internet!"
