ShowHouse Santa Fe 2014- Ancient Asian Master Suite

For the 2nd Annual ShowHouse Santa Fe - two weekend event the Santa Fe Interior Designer community was on amazing display! The 13,000 square foot granite estate originally built in the 1920's was offered for this year's ShowHouse by Barker Realty. The interior design theme "Ancient Future" was perfect and the individual designers did it up accordingly.

My design approach emphasized the blending of Ancient Asian with Modern abstraction for the Master Suite that included a sitting room "Sanctuary". Starting with a Feng Shui approach, I selected Bone China paint with Gold leaf, black, creams and whites balanced with organic bamboo furnishing and plants. For continuity and contrast in design, the Master Bedroom encompassed rich antique bronze metallic walls, deep wood toned furnishing with black accents for a masculine and feminine balance with a sultry vibe. Pairs were emphasized in the accents for Feng Shui consideration.

The sublte blush taupe walls softened the space while the metallic copper Mongolian patterned silk-threaded drapes gave a luminescent rose-tinted glow during sunset.

Show House Santa Fe Interior Design Leans on Fashion!

Santa Fe charm meets 1900's Austrian Bohemian style for this year's Show House Santa Fe. The interior decor for the dining room was inspired by the design details and ornate patterns of artist Gustav Klimt and his life companion Emilie Flöge, a fashion designer from Vienna.

David Naylor of David Naylor Interiors and I teamed up as co-founders and design collaborators for this fashion inspired home tour that occured in early October in support of the non-profit organization Dollars4Schools.org. A good thing for the public schools and so wonderful for the interior design community to creatively gather under one roof.

"At Home with Fashion", was our theme for this first time Home Tour event and Santa Fe interior designers showed off their fashion flair in decor for all attendees and Fashion-Fusion Party guests!! Santa Fe is a wonderful community and the gathering of supporters and attendees brought a smile to my face. Thanks to all who reached out!!
