Living Room by House of Honey

by Anh-Minh on October 24, 2014

houseofhoney1I have admired the homes done by Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey for years; she has this refined yet fun sensibility that I just love. Yesterday, during a visit to Decorist founder Gretchen Hansen’s house, I had the pleasure of meeting the Los Angeles-based interior designer. Tamara was enlisted to work on Gretchen’s living room, and the entire scheme was developed virtually (Decorist is a site that specializes in e-design).

A photo of the living room was posted to the Anthology Instragram account yesterday, and I wanted to share a couple more images of the space here. Tamara incorporated some of the homeowners’ existing pieces into the design, which includes some chairs that I’m seriously coveting now (the tri-legged leather sling, the carved wood hand-shaped chair).

While Gretchen wanted to stick to a fairly neutral palette, as you can see from the photos below of Tamara’s retail showroom in Pasadena, she also enjoys working with color.

Sandro Lopez

Architectural, clean, and modern—this is the work of designer Sandro Lopez, who believes in the importance of process during the creative journey. As he says: “To faithfully preserve the purity of a vision, the responsibility of the designer needs to encompass the entirety of the journey.”

Lopez recently exhibited a new collection at the London Design Festival. Isn’t the overhead view of his Parallax coffee table (below) amazing?

Jim Darling

There’s something so exciting and romantic about the act of traveling, especially when you’re lucky enough to snag the window seat. This could possibly explain why I am so in love with these paintings by artist Jim Darling. Darling treats airplane windows as the perfect portal with which to view the world. So, whether it’s the skyscrapers of New York City or the green patchwork of the midwest, these works inspire thoughts of travel and adventure.

Jewelry by Uhuru

by Joanna on October 20, 2014

Honestly, how cool is this jewelry from Uhuru? These pieces take inspiration from the design elements of Uhuru’s furniture collections, but translate them into a wearable form. The collection includes a variety of one-of-a-kind rings and necklaces made of natural wood, accented with precious metals. And each is produced in New York City using the same means of production as Uhuru’s furniture. I especially love the pieces that feature knots and holes in the wood, giving the jewelry an organic yet architectural and modern feel.
