Here is my first post of the FDluxe shoot.  All photos by Manny Rodriguez.   Designed by Sam of Style Swoon.  She did an amazing job!! I'm going to do several posts of the shoot, there are so many nice pictures!  I hope you all don't get bored with it–I hate it when I see a home featured in a magazine, and there are so few photos, that  it's hard to get a feel for the house–so here goes. The files are larger than I normally choose.  It might take a little time to download.  I hope you all enjoy!

    I am really impressed with the clean, sophisticated darkness that seems to pervade the whole design. So many elements are elements that I have imagined for my house some day. So far my favorite design elements are the uneven hide on the table, the huge clam shell, and most of all the amazing chandelier fixture in the last picture – I’d love more details on this piece, if possible. It’s absolutely perfect.

    Incredible. That tusk table is especially astounding. But also your “before” look was just as amazing too. Can’t wait to see the closet!!!!

    OMG it looks great!! It’s so eclectic!!! And your corgi, Townsend made laugh when I clicked on the image. I didn’t know corgis may also be double jointed and can lay flat like that. My shih tzu does the same thing!

    FF–Yes, I have poured concrete floors. I just ripped out the original carpet, and scraped all the yucky stuff off with acid, then put on several layers of clear epoxy (my sister and I actually did this ourselves, it was a beatdown!!)—they’re due for a recovering.
    Did Alexis have that desk? She is my hero!!

    You’ve done an incredible job. I’ve loved watching your home evolve over the last few years, and that over time, I feel like I could walk through your house and know where I’m going. The tusk table is gorgeous, and I love the giant shelled bowls on your table. Stunning.

    Wow, I don’t even know what to say. Um, brilliant? There’s at least one thing in each photo that I completely LOVE. I don’t even know where to start. One of these days (when my kids outgrow play dough & diapers) I will redecorate my house. πŸ™‚

    I just love all the different texture you used in each room to add depth. I also enjoy the hints of color, like the teal in the entry and the green in the other area of the house. Kudos! you have achieved amazing harmony in your house. I love it. So sophisticated.

    Hi Judy,
    This is my first comment although I have been following your blog since its beginning.
    I just had to tell you, that the pics are very inspirational! I love the fact that your home does not have that typical American feel to it, but instead has a fresh and avantgarde look. Very untraditional and European (that’s a compliment ;^)- it fits well in with the picture I have of your personality in my mind :^)

  • Lindsay

    Amazing, amazing! I love each element, but the chair in the next to last picture is my fave! Well done! I know you are so pleased.

    Can you tell me what is the finish on the floor? It looks like cement? I love it!!!!

    I loved the cushion-mat-dog (Townsend?) on the 1st pic! :-DDD
    Love the deco… but prefer the older-lighter version of the dining room.
    I would love to have a house like that but no money and 6 cats force me into minimalism…. :-p

    This is truly an awesome, unique space! Great treasures hidden in there… also, what type of finish is on the walls? Is it venetian plaster, or something else? Very cool and industural!
