Interior Design Magazine: September

Hey, everyone!

So, I’ve been slacking a lot with this lately… I know I’ve missed a month or so of my Interior Design Magazine series… I know… I need to step it up a notch! Well, here goes.

Interior Design Magazine
As usual I’ll start with my favorite projects featured in the magazine!
One
aesop
Aesop is a high end skin care line started by hair stylist Dennis Paphitis in 1987. Paphitis then hired Giovanni Lepori as a general manager. Each Aesop store is unique. Lepori likes to choose architects early in their career to design new stores. All the stores focus on using raw materials and center around a sink with running water so that customers can wash their hands and try out the products!

I’m a huge fan of the curved, wood ceiling and creative, geometric shelving designs!

Two
tribeca
This next one is the loft space of Eric and Julie Ronning by Ghislaine Vinas Interior Design. The whole place is animal themed starting with the swallow wallpaper featured in the entry hall.

I absolutely love the wood look of the trompe l’oeil wallpaper for the back splash in the kitchen!

Three
mcann
This last of my favorites is… well my overall favorite! This is the Midtown headquarters of the advertising firm McCann Erikson. The new headquarters were a design collaboration between Gensler, a top 100 design firm, and Tom Dixon, a company focused on lighting and furniture. (I’ve mentioned my love for Tom Dixon Lighting before in a previous design post!)

I really love the stools sound the bar area, and I LOVE all the Tom Dixon lighting installations, as well as the chevron rug!

Like seriously… the lighting… I can’t get over it. The copper lighting cluster above the lounge area blows my mind! It’s amazing how much lighting can make or break a space.

So now onto products I love!
products I love

1. Pelle Soap Stones:
“The Soap Stones are handcrafted glycerine soap intended for both use and display. Consisting of all natural, vegetable-based soap ingredients, the Soap Stones are made and hand cut in our Brooklyn studio.”
2. CX Design:
“CX Design is the creation of Italian-born designer Monica Missio and British-born entrepreneur Richard Cleves. Established in 1990, it offers the only complete lighting collection individually hand-crafted by master Italian glass blowers on Murano, an island just north of Venice – the centuries old, undisputed center of the world’s most treasured glass. ” I love how the pendants and chandeliers can come on chains!
3. Erica Rosenfeld Capsule Light:
Handblown glass table and floor lamps that resemble pill capsules. I like the variety of colors and sizes these come in!

Well, that’s about it for my Interior Design Magazine September post! Check out their website for more information on any of the projects I talked about!
