“N”eat Console Table

In my ongoing quest for personal and unusual design and decor elements I stumbled across this beauty on the qerat blog. It’s a little too contemporary for my house right now….but someday how cool would that be?  These quirky and individual pieces are what make a space extra special..I hope you find some!

Designer Living – Modern Loft

Written by on 27th January 2011 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

Seeing how designers live in their own spaces is so interesting….it really is a reflection of their pure uncensored creativity with greater risks and BIG pay offs in terms of style.  Here is what I hope will be the first of many glimpses into designer minds and interiors.

What a great way to start; I simply LOVE this modern loft!

Subject: Valerie Pasquiou, Interior Designer

On How she broke into the design business:

Valerie: If you can believe it, my big break came on my second job. Essentially, for the last year that I was doing set and production design, a friend of mine came up to me and said, “I have a 5,000-square-foot house, and would you consider doing it?” And I said, “Okay, I’ll help you.”

On Risk:

Valerie: I will say that I’m much less cautious than other designers from  America. I’m not really concerned with having everything match. I never have been. I’m not quite sure where the myth that things must or should match came from.
