Michael Graydon

I came across the beautiful photography from Michael Graydon of interiors from his clients. Each photo showcases perfectly styled rooms, lots of great accessories and the essential to great photography...perfect lighting! Feast your eyes!

Perfectly styled living space with fun accessories starting with the spotted dalmatian print chairs, an Hermes blanket, Union Jack pillow, Magic 8 ball, rubix cube and a bowl full of matches. If I lived in NYC I would want this room.

Rustic entryway with reclaimed wood floors, potting style bench, and burlap tree. Hello Fall!

Beautiful bold entryway with the geometric tile detail with similar pattern on the door and mirror. The Cole & Sons birch wallpaper softens the room at the top.

Chic city bedroom

Black marble bath with antique fixtures

Natural elements for simple chest styling

Gentleman styling with catchall plates

Beautiful backyard. Notice the topiary shape of the trees and the perfectly creeping ivory on the banister.

Mini rock and succulent garden

Now this is my type of gardening!

J.K. Place Hotel in Capri

Greetings from Capri! Just kidding, I wish! Today I wanted to share the beautiful J.K. Capri Hotel in Capri, Italy designed by Italian architect, Michele Bonan which features elegant seaside decor. Each of the 22 rooms are decorated individually and features mostly blue and white rooms with some other sunny yellow and white rooms and violet accents thrown in the mix. This hotel is perched atop a rugged cliff with amazing views of the Mediterranean. I love how the rooms are simplistic enough as to not compete with the amazing views outside!

Blue and white heaven!

Love the lilac pillow thrown in the mix

Beautiful penthouse bath and what a view! I love the wall and floor tiling!

Violet goodness at brunch!

Fun zebra print ottoman mixes things up

Such a lovely view and balcony. 

Sunny yellow to match the lemon trees in Capri.

Benjamin Dhong: San Francisco Row House

What do you get when you have a 40 year conservative British investment banker client who says he wants  über über modern decor, yet drives an Aston Martin and wears bespoke suits? Well, in the client's case, be glad he hired the perfect designer! 

The ever amazing Benjamin Dhong once again creates a masterpiece for this San Francisco row house perfectly blending elements to create a cosmopolitan, collected, European feel with strong doses of modern to keep it fresh for his client! I love Dhong's great use of color, wall coverings, textures, and metallic touches. We are taken on a historical journey of worldly inspirations from Greek architectural accents, Italian lighting, Moroccan tables, French Faux Bois, Chinese Chinoiserie, and Indian landscape wallpaper. Hope you enjoy!

Dhong designed this foyer channeling the grandeur of English country houses. The convex mirror features entwined dolphins which during the 18th century became a symbol for England's hegemony over the seas.

50's Italian candelabra paired with more modern style striped rug that was pieced together from carpet remnants provides vibrancy and fun energy since the client passes through this room daily.

This room does not get a lot of light, so Dhong chose a gilded wallpaper, Margot by Sandberg, to reflect light. Notice the ceiling color and trim.

Gray walls covered in Kneedler Fauchère’s Fine Hemp, a color and fabric choice perfect for the gentleman who loves suits, not to mention the coffee table book paying an homage to one of the greatest iconic fashion designers.

Tiled boat painting and walnut commode with gilt feet  in the upstairs hall.

Nobellis Faux Bois wallpaper, the sink's branch pedestal and fresh flowers bring in natural elements to this powder room.

Perfectly balanced living room

Two banquettes line the wall in this cheery family room making it easy to go from dining to lounging.

Wooden urn adds a classical counterpoint against the modern Jeff Koons Balloon Dog plate

Dhong's travels to Marrakech inspired this room with wall of antiqued mirrors, velvet banquette, and inlaid pearl Moroccan tables. 

A neutral palette was the base for this bedroom with color being added with accessories. The straight angles of the bold poster bed is offset with the curves of the porthole mirror and the glass murano circles on the lamps.

Another view of the master bedroom and to contrast the tan and beige palette, Dhong added this floating white sculptured Eames La Chaise.

Space Age office with antique chair paired with Aviator Wing desk which is inspired after a WWII fighter plane. The Philip Jeffries rivets wallpaper inspired from vintage metal fighter planes.

Orange duvet and blanket adds pop of color against the neutral palette.

Beautiful table styling complete with vintage lighter, delicate bowl and great pop of color from flower bloom.

Chinoiserie daybed coined the "opium den" with the Indian wallpaper complete with a more modern Jonathan Adler Hans barbell brass table.

House Listing

I saw a beautiful house real estate listing here in Atlanta and wanted to share some of the images which features some great architectural elements and ceiling detail. The walls are all white and it makes me wonder were they all white before or did they paint a neutral palette since they are selling the house. It doesn't look stale as there are pops of color throughout with their floral fabric, rugs and artwork and darker window and door trim. For more photos and info check out the listing from Linda Williams at Beacham & Company.
