Home tour- Lauren Santo Domingo's stylish and quirky loft!

Lauren Santo Domingo, a contributing editor at Vogue, is well-known for her clothes. A glimpse inside her Flatiron loft that she shares with her husband Andrés Santo Domingo proves to be as eclectic and chic as her wardrobe. Let's take a look. 













I really love Lauren's elegant, stylish and eclectic home. I like how her home is filled with unexpected pieces and quirky elements. It's visually interesting and quite different than most homes I have seen and I find it quite refreshing and inspirational. I especially love her living room's coffee table vignette that she fills with live plants. What about you? Are you drawn to homes that filled with a lot of quirky objects as well? Your thoughts?

Cool products alert- Stamp Rugs!

Recently, I stumbled across these gorgeous Machin's Royal Mail Stamp Rugs while reading Apartment Therapy a few days ago. These unique collection of Stamp Rugs is skillfully handmade from 100% New Zealand wool in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. The collection comprises of 6 stamp proportioned sizes with custom made sizes available on request and it comes with many fabulous colors as well. Check this out!






Used as a conventional rug or hung on the wall for an alternative look, the Queen's Head Stamp Rug is the ultimate majestic design statement. And I think they look absolutely chic too!











I think this is such a clever concept and the rugs are so fun and stylish to boot! These will look great in a modern home and will be quite the conversation piece, don't you think? Do you love these rugs as much as I do? Which color is your favorite? Do you prefer to have them on the walls or on the floors?

Cool designer alert- Jenny Wolf!

Introducing talented New York based interior designer, Jenny Wolf. Jenny's appreciation for design began at a very early age. She developed a love of home furnishings, antiques and all things beautiful while growing up in the culturally eclectic city of New Orleans and on the coast of South Carolina to a family of furniture retailers. Upon graduating college, she moved to NYC where she worked in the retail development at Ralph Lauren, managing visual merchandising and shop installations for Ralph Lauren women's shops in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and specialty stores around the country. Jenny left to attend Parsons where she earned a degree in Interior Design, concentrating on architecture, lighting, furniture, color and interior layouts. She assisted on a number of high profile residential projects before opening her own firm in early 2011.


























The designer: Jenny Wolf

Isn't Jenny's portfolio gorgeous? I am absolutely drawn to her designs and I like how she paired eclectic pieces with more feminine and rustic elements in all her interiors. The rooms that she designed not only looked beautiful but effortless and chic at the same time. I also love the way she styled her rooms and I think she definitely perfected the eclectic chic style. Your thoughts?
