I believe strongly in providing my clients with warm and welcoming luxury. The rooms my team and I design for homeowners are livable yet elevated. Collaboration is key and sharing my interior design inspirations helps clients craft their vision. Of course, it also lets me rave about my favorite design styles!

I am and always have been an advocate for a “classically current” style that, while evergreen, provides a timely presence to any room. Though I tailor each experience to every client for a unique collaboration, I secretly live for those small touches that balance whimsy and sophistication! But “classically current” isn’t a limiting phrase by any means.

Whether you’re looking for a mid-century sofa in a distinct fabric, that perfect statement mirror, or something else entirely – there’s a timely yet timeless piece out there for you.

 

Classics for Any Room

 

Classically Current is expressed in this black and white kitchen

 

This high rise kitchen is a prime example of what I love about the “classically current” style. Notice the detailing of the marble, white walls, and rich leather chairs. Balanced against these elements you have the dark cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and — of course — the gold touches.

Maybe it reminds you of your favorite haunt in New York City or a classic Parisian pied-a-terre? It may mean something different to everyone depending on personal experiences. No matter the style of kitchen you want (galley, cook’s, open, etc), this concept of using neutral color palettes and warm materials with punchy design elements in your current artistic zeitgeist never goes out of style.

Now let’s get to the meat and potatoes of any house: the living room!

 

Eclectic, But Simple

You can also apply this mentality to your living room!

As an example of classically current style, this Boho modern living room employs some similar features to the kitchen. Notice the crisp white? But there are clear differences.

The wood-work, metalwork, and natural woven lounge chairs add another layer of personality. The clean walls keep things light and bright and the blending of materials grants a modern feel without adding weight to the room. The finishes on the overhead accents are brushed copper which is a great alternative to antiqued or brushed gold. There are so many different kinds of materials and textures at work in this room, but none of them fight each other. That is the beauty of classically current styling and another reason why I love our design philosophy so SO much.

 

Minimalist Drama

Doesn’t everyone love a fabulous foyer?

After all, it’s the very first space your guests see when they enter your home. This is the spot to plant your feet and make a firm statement.

While your eyes are automatically drawn to the stellar floor pattern in this gorgeous Houston foyer, other moments in the room stand apart as well. If you’ve noticed the trend of mixed materials, fresh white walls, and metal accents, you’re grasping the concept of the “classically current” design philosophy!

One thing to note, minimalist does not equal boring. But it does mean that everything ins thoughtfully placed and has a specific function.

 

Color is your friend, really!

At this point, you might be thinking: is “classically current” style ALL about white and metal? Short answer: definitely not!

Our clients built this beautiful custom home in The Woodlands, Texas and we created this living room in the “classically current” mode. While the home is not inherently contemporary in style (the architecture is more traditional) our clients admire and love the contemporary interior design. Here, we make these two intersecting styles work! We showcase how we use color by placing it as a grounding neutral (the modern rug) and then inject key elements like the mid-century modern Barcelona bench in Pony and the natural stacked stone on the fireplace. The key to this strategy is in balance.

I can go on for days about our Classically Current philosophy so, for more ideas on designing with this in mind, I’ve got you covered on our socials. The Ohorona24.in.ua blog has an entire tag dedicated to “classically current” because…well, it is my jam!

Five Ways to Create a Home Away from Home for Summer Visitors

I love nothing more than entertaining guests at my home. No matter the time of year or season, it’s always so much fun to pamper friends and family, and provide a relaxing haven while they’re away from their own nests. Whether they’re enjoying the patio weather, dining alfresco or just doing some luxurious lounging, I always try to make sure our visitors have everything they need (and more!) during their stay. Of course, when designing homes for my clients, it’s always a priority to create the perfect space for their guests as well!

There is an art to designing a space for guests that is inviting, relaxing and comfortable. Everyone has a story about a hotel, resort, or Airbnb that made their trip much more memorable. What makes a true home away from home for you? Is it a luxe bathtub, a substantial closet, a reading nook in your room or simply an inviting bed with soft, cozy linens?

Read on for some of our tips to turn your home into a place where your family and friends want to return to again and again!

Favorite Designs with Shades of Green

Spring is officially here – lush flowers blossoming everywhere you look, people sporting festive shamrocks to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and everyone spending more time outdoors in the beautiful, warm weather. What better way to inject a little spring into your home than with some eye-catching pops of green?

This year’s is a stimulating and refreshing tone, and is also symbolic of new beginnings. Because of its versatile nature, it’s easy to introduce green into modern or conventional homes. There’s just something about a beautiful mint tone that can relax you, an unexpected shade of jade to lift your spirits, or an indulgent display of teal to put an eclectic spin on a traditional space.

Want to start small? Reach for an emerald vase or introduce a sage-colored throw pillow. Feeling a little more adventurous? Go on and tackle that olive-green accent wall you’ve been dreaming of!

No matter your mood, here are some tips for how to freshen up several different spaces in your home this spring using various lustrous shades of green.

Making the most of built-in nooks

Just because a space is small doesn’t mean it should be deprived of personality. In fact, injecting loads of personality into a small space can be really fun and add instant charm. Whether it’s a built-in space under the window or a cozy reading nook, there are plenty of ways to optimize the space by combining style and function including using pillows, cushions, lighting, stylish accents and storage to create one fab cohesive design.

I personally love capitalizing on these tiny spaces by transforming them into a private hideaway for the kiddos, a tranquil oasis fit for relaxation or a quiet area to dive into a good book.

Navigating the wide world of wallcoverings

If you’re one of those people who believe wallcoverings are old news or outdated, then allow me to change your mind. Much like a lovely piece of art, wallcoverings add interest and richness to any space! When considering the use of wallcoverings, it is important to choose a style proportionate to the intended space. For instance, small patterns can get lost in a room with high ceilings, vertical stripes tend to make a space look smaller, and horizontal stripes will make a room appear larger.

When it comes to designing with wallcoverings, the possibilities are endless and choosing the right pattern can really make or break a space, so let’s talk about some of my favorite ways to tackle this design tactic!
