Dining By Design: Elaine Griffin

This is “India” designed by NY Interior Designer, Elaine Griffin at DIFFA’s Dining By Design. The custom handblown chandelier is amazing, from Suzan Etkin (visit their website, a must-see). Additional credits to ABC Carpet & Home, Pearl River Trading Co., and Dexter Phillip. Wow, that chandelier. Just can’t take my eyes off of it…

Laura Day Design

I just discovered Laura Day Design yesterday (thanks to reader Jane) and really love her style. What a great eye this lady has, and definitely a wonderful resource to look up if you live in the NY area and want to transform your space into a gorgeous place to reside. Here are a few images from her NY apartment. Don’t we all dream of a balcony like this?

Inspiration Saturday: David Hicks, Designer

Today on Inspiration Saturday, let’s enjoy a few jaw dropping images from the portfolio of Designer David Hicks. I love his use of color over the years, it really pushes us to experiment a little, doesn’t it? If you’d enjoy looking at more, visit his website – that will keep you busy for awhile. (I just love his fabric.) Have a lovely weekend, I’ll see you on Monday!
