London's Caroline Paterson

FROM the Archive:   Thrilled is how I felt when I came across the portfolio of London designer, Caroline Paterson. Named by House & Garden to their Top 100 decorators list, I find her work inspiring and the attention to detail amazing. The first picture makes me swoon - love the blue/green silk pillow and hand blown glass vase paired with the contemporary styling of the bureau and the traditional artwork.
Abstract art, its colors reinforced in the fabric choices, adds a bolt of energy to this traditional library.
What drew me into this photo is the lamp - amazing how one carefully selected piece can make a space. It very subtlety picks up on the fabric on the ottoman.
The bird sculpture and the abstract painting play off each other - although everything is stationary there's movement in this space.

A great reminder that a closet is all you need for a functional home office space.

For me, these narrow horizontal stripes are unexpected and add so much interest to this space.

you have an amazing eye, michelle. so many rooms today have so much "stuff" and everything competes for attention. these rooms are quietly amazing, fresh and tasteful.

thanks for the look, donna

It is so difficult to pull off a cohesive design with seemingly disparate elements. You are so observant to be able to pick out why these rooms work. I really love her choice of accessories in each space.

Though I was not professional enough to tell fur and leather, I could feel the material those mens leather jackets adopted was in high quality, I felt very comfortable and extremely cool when wore those apparel from www.cwmalls.com, best choice I ever made.
