Loi Thai of Tone on Tone is Blogging!

Did you know that designer Loi Thai of Tone on Tone Antiques, based in Bethesda but recognized nationally as a premier source for 18th and 19th century Swedish antiques, has recently started blogging? I was so excited to come across his blog just a few days ago. Today he posted about his former home - gorgeous! The thing that strikes me most is the feeling of openness and warmth at the same time. You almost expect to feel a fresh summer breeze while walking from room to room. (Traditional Home 2008, photography by Erik Johnson)

Doesn't everyone who loves design know this image? For me, the picture of this swedish secretary is one of the most memorable interiors shots of this decade.
For more images of Loi Thai and Thomas Troeschel's previous home, go here.

Hope you have a great spring weekend!

Yes, I noticed Loi's comments on a few blogs and was so happy to see him. I hope one day to visit his store on our next DC trip. His taste is exquisite - his rooms are some of the most beautiful.
