CREATING A VISUAL DIALOGUE

The moment I walked into the gorgeous studio/showroom of design duo Megan Sommerville and Matt Ensner in upstate New York I knew I was in for a treat. Not only did I get to meet one of the most talented couples I've ever met, but also was dazzled by the beautiful craftsmanship in their furniture and lighting collection. Founders of Materia Designs, the couple moved to the Hudson Valley a few years back to start their business where they bought an old bungalow in need of loads of TLC. With their creative spirits in overdrive, Megan and Matt didn't think twice to roll up their sleeves and emerged themselves into a challenging renovation. Luckily for us, they have opened the doors of 'The Cape' (as they like call it their nest) to showcase the stunning transformation and the results of their hard work. I recently chatted with Megan about their project of love and some of the ins and outs of the design process. Here is what she said:

DESIGNING WITH COLOR

This magnificent flat in the heart of Madrid uses color details beautifully to create a design story. Interior designer Pablo Paniagua remodeled the seventies apartment to open up the existing floor plan in order to make the space brighter and airier. There's no doubt it was the right decision to be able to create the perfect canvas to combine objects and furniture of different eras and styles. Pablo also used color only through artwork and accessories to inject visual impact and energy to each the rooms and to ccompliment the minimalist architecture of his gorgeous apartment.

RELAXED SOPHISTICATON

There's nothing that makes me happier than a beautifully designed home collection, especially when created by world-famed designer Paola Navone. Well, perhaps delicious food, shopping and traveling. Ok, but back to what's making so excited today. The multi-talented Italian designer recently launched her tableware and furnishings collections exclusively designed for Crate & Barrel. All three collections, Como, Mallorca and Riviera, are "dedicated to many different houses... joyful and delicate, imaginative and poetic, classic and timeless." The collection has an air of simplicity and a relaxed sophistication that make the pieces an easy fit with any style. It's fresh and elegant at the same time. What can I say? I'm totally crushing on it. This is one not to be missed!

AN EYE FOR MODERNISM

It doesn't take long to realize there's a design aficionado living in this mid century modern haven. Well, actually two. Designed by architect Edward Fickett, this is the California home of renowned photographer Jonn Coolidge and his partner and ceramist Warner Walcott. Every single piece of furniture, accessories and lighting fixtures is exquisitely curated — some even brought through eBay. The couple's love for style and design doesn't only come through in their work, but also in their beautiful home.

A VERY PERSONAL STYLE

Set in the gorgeous region of Alentejo, Portugal, this glorious country adobe is the peaceful retreat of designer Nuno Benito. His enviable collection of flea market finds, vintage Scandinavian furniture and family heirloom compliment each other beautifully in this house—giving it soul and personality. From quiet to bold, the area rugs play an important role in this home's decor as he feels they're the finishing touch that give warmth and humanity to every space. As for the accessories, he prefers to use older pieces that have some history and individuality.

MIXING AT ITS BEST

Tucked away deep into Segovia's dense forest, this lovely country house is the ultimate example of sustainable construction. The living room, with breathtaking countryside views, is a mid-century modern heaven with clever touches of rustic decor. Many of their beautiful treasures come from flea markets, like the cool desk from the 50s under the stairs. But others, believe or not, come from IKEA, like the red floor lamp, red dining chairs and glossy black kitchen cabinets. Talk about knowing how to be resourceful and mixing styles creatively.

BAUHAUS INSPIRED

Wonderful art, bright colors and mid-century classics harmoniously come together in this Bauhaus-inspired home in Copenhagen. The creative couple living in this vibrant house not always agreed on some of the decor decisions, but once a consensus was reached, a pretty amazing nest came about. As good artists, color was not an obstacle as they used it rather successfully to express their unique vision. I think the sunny yellow bathroom is one of my favorite rooms of this nest.

SCENT AND SENSIBILITY

One of the many things I loved about my trip to Stockholm last Summer was discovering one of my favorite fragrances to date—Pulp by the Swedish brand Byredo. My fascination started when I walked into the lobby of the Nobis Hotel which was infused by scented candles from this wonderful brand. Ever since I returned from my trip, I've noticed how popular Byredo has become in the fashion world, all thanks to the vision, passion and design sensibility of former professional basketball player Ben Gorham. Today, to my delight, I share with you his very Scandinavian home in Stockholm. His eclectic flat is a combination of new acquisitions mixed with old classics from the 1950s—particularly his collection of chandeliers. If you want to dig in more into Ben's wonderful style, you can do so in this great The New York Times Magazine article. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
