Vintage Style Home Office

Both for home offices and offices with vintage style, this zinc desk is a perfect choice! The classic lines of this commodious desk gain panache from the graphite grey luster of zinc and the accent of exposed brass nailheads. A traditional surface for cafe bars throughout France, it has a patina that becomes deeper and richer with time. No two pieces are exactly alike, making each desk truly unique. Zinc desk at Restoration Hardware has antique cast iron hardware.

Authentic Fabrics Beautify Homes

I always believe that authentic fabrics create beauty in homes. Even one or two decorative acceccories or pieces with authentic fabrics can be enough to add some authentic touch to the atmosphere. This dark blue and white fabric's oversize desert cactus flowers form an allover pattern perfect for upholstery or curtains in crisp and saturated ocean blue on an all white background. Made from acrylic canvas, an extra lightfastness suits this fabric for both indoor and outdoor use. Fabric is cut to order and is a final sale. Ocean print fabric by Trina Turk brings home a flair for the dramatic with the Louis Nui island batik-inspired print. Content of ocean print fabric at Layla Grayce is 100% acrylic.

Colorful Rug for Colorful Room

Designed with a modern approach and spirited color in mind, this well-designed rug is hand tufted from 100% fine wool. It provides a soft and thick luxurious feel, is strong, resilient and static resistant making it an ideal choice for a high-traffic area. A hand-tufted rug is created without tying knots into the foundation but rather by pushing wool or acrylic yarn through a primary backing, creating a tuft. Then, using a latex glue to hold the tufts in place, a rugmaker will apply a secondary foundation which is then covered by a third and final cloth backing to protect your floor. The final step involves shearing the tops of the looped tufts to create the pile. Hand tufted wool rug field popy pink by Amy Butler at Layla Grayce is considered a handmade product and some difference in color, size or shape is consistent with the nature of a handmade product and does not reflect a defect in the product.

House Near Ocean

This private house project is located in Bridgehampton, USA. The sand dunes of the Hamptons are a natural wonder; the summer get-away for affluent New Yorkers.
This stretch of sand on the ocean is an hour north of the city by car. Over the course of last century, through the fifties and sixties, a fairly sophisticated architecture emerged among the secluded, ocean front homes. Today the dunes are protected and new construction is prohibited.
The Bridgehampton project is actually superimposed on the footprint of an existing ocean front building with new volumes being created within the existing envelope.
The transparent deck parallels the beach and was designed as a visual bridge between the swimming pool area expanding to the back of the house and the ocean horizon.
The building is a lightweight structure of steel and glass that leaves the corners free to amplify the continuity of the landscape.
Accessed through the living room, the large roof terrace occupies the entire building footprint and overlooks the ocean, the beach, the pool, and the house itself. A Marilyn Monroe print on the wall looks through the pool area.
The detailing of the house is unified by natural wood cladding left to weather and become gray in the salty air.
The house was perfectly designed for a large family as you can see in the pictures.
The interior volume contains bedrooms that face the long side of the pool, forming a wind protected and comfortable courtyard, with a sunset view.
In the corner, between the two-storied volume and the living room, the kitchen and dining area form the fulcrum of family life.
The dominant horizontality of the forms, the wood, and the transparency of the glass allow this building to totally integrate with this utterly extraordinary natural landscape.
Small but an effective detail... Black and white Elizabeth Taylor print on the wall adds style and beauty to the room. House near ocean in Bridgehampton is a project made by Antonio Citterio and Partners.
