Tuesday Terms: Persian Rugs...

What you need to know is this: When it comes to the finest in rugs, Persians (the real deal from Iran) are king. Here are a few that I love. These are all hand-knotted, vegetable dyed, antique Persians from Iran. Contact me for prices and sizing as I would love to see these rugs go to good homes. (and my husband will kill me if any of them go to my good home although I'm seriously considering it.)

And this is no Persian but she is just as dear. How cute it my little 6-month-old Selby!:

GEORGE Projects: Courtney Ave. Preview

Another exciting project has commenced... check out this original 1920's Hollywood Bungalow. The living room with original hardwood floors, fireplace and trim intact:

And the adjacent dining room (don't you love those bungalow style built-ins:

And now here's a little taste of the design direction! I shopped some of my favorite LA haunts like Pat McGann up on La Cienega for these vintage Indian paisley print pillows:

And some amazing vintage finds and fabrics at Hollywood at Home (also on La Cienega):

John Rob Shaw Euro with a vintage Ikat in front:

Peter Dunham's Samarkand in Blue and Red (soo beautiful!)

Another Peter Dunham Textile in a bunch of colorways:

So many exciting ways to go! You won't want to miss these updates. We're hoping to make a rug decision this week!

GEORGE Projects: 29th Street Side Tables

29th Street Residence Side Tables are on their way. Can you guess which of the 3 we'll be using? All 3 of these Arteriors tables are simply beautiful but only 1 is right for 29 Street!

Tuesday Terms: Portuguese Bed

I have been reminded of my great admiration for Portuguese furniture by a project that I am working on and thought you might agree. The style is similar to Spanish but less influenced my the Moors and more influenced by the East (China, India and East Indies). My favorite pieces are probably the 4 poster beds (like this one in a guest suite at the Santa Barbara Canary Hotel):

Or Portuguese Consoles like this one:

And I also love this Portuguese-inspired Sunburst Armoire being carried by Wisteria.com:

GEORGE Projects: Westwind Family Room

I posted the completed Westwind Family Room a few weeks back but I wanted to update it with the before photo and reveal a few secrets!! This is a photo of the room as we found it. Do you see that window just behind the TV... If you scroll down, you'll notice that it is no longer in the "after" picture... That's because we drywalled right over that dern window, even reinforcing the wall for the wall-mounted TV. It was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and needed a patch! Amazingly enough, the room actually got lighter even though we removed a window.

A bright and cheery Westwind Residence Family Room completed earlier this Spring. Just in time to welcome their first little one who was due the 1st of May. Congratulations to the happy parents and happy weekend to everyone else!

Also, a big thank you to my Sister-in-Law, the brains and creator behind Elva Fields Jewelry (if you aren't familiar with Elva Fields, you're missing out!!!) who recently featured GEORGE Interior Design on her website: Elva Fields

GEORGE Projects: Commonwealth Serenity

Wouldn't you love to transform your master bedroom into a peaceful retreat. That's exactly what we've been up to with this wonderful client/partner. Cottage cheese ceilings no more, a fresh coat of paint in DE Haze Blue, new damask bedding set by Robert Allen, super deep tufted custom headboard and matching bench, amazing custom window treatments (we went for the valances!) new lighting, plush West Elm Bello rug create an ultra-relaxing, dream bedroom. Here are some photos from before and the window install. We'll post again after the window treatments have "set" and we add our final GEORGE touches:)
