Screens

by Breeze Giannasio in


I've been thinking a lot about screens this week.  

Selectively hiding and revealing the innards of a structure, interior or exterior, a screened facade or a series of slats has the power to shroud a building in an air of mystery.  The real mystery, however, is why people don't use them more often.

Here are some beauties. 



Reflections on Swedish Interiors

by Breeze Giannasio in


A well-designed Swedish room, whether an antique-filled country home or a contemporary industrial loft space, has a calm and feel-good quality that literally permeates the atmosphere.   Check out this fantastic book that beautifully showcases these Swedish fundamentals-those of functionality, quality of materials, light, preservation, art, eclecticism, color, sense of place and a deep reverence for nature.  Reflections on Swedish Interiors -- available on Amazon and full of beauty and inspiration!

On my last trip to New York, I swung by the Oly Showroom to finalize the order on two beautiful pieces for a client in DC.  It's always a treat.  Here are a few shots of their current showroom floor...

Making Beauty

You said it, Saul Bass.   Might make it an imperative and swap out want to for must.

Fashion Forward Gray

by Breeze Giannasio in , ,


Heading to NY tomorrow for work and play.  As you know it's fashion week and wouldn't you know that one of the fall runway trends is... gray!  My fav. Below you'll see fashion designer Monique Lhuillier's Beverly Hills living room, decorated in shades of subtle, silvery gray. I approve. Lots of pieces from Ironies and Oly as well - both favorite go tos.
