cool design firm

it’s a hump day feast! a friend alerted me to the vibes of reath design. and wow. cookie cutter it is not. if you can get me on board with the heavy wood details of a craftsman bungalow you are officially on my short list of designers i’d pick to decorate my house without any direction from me. (ok that’s actually not possible but you feel me.)

take a look….


you might recognize a few of these images from a domino magazine feature on the designer frances merrill’s home in the hollywood hills. while looking though her portfolio i felt a strong commune vibe which as it turns out, is where she started!

i truly love how she works with (and embraces!) existing tile and cabinetry, mill work, flooring etc…it’s so GD refreshing. i mean why replace beautifully worn wood floors with new wood floors that you want to look worn? makes no damn sense.

go peruse. it’s all so good.
