Elle Decor's 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in December 2016

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 13, 2016 1:06:00 PM

Elle Decor's December 2016 issue seems to be predicting a return to richly colored traditional interiors with gorgeous Aubusson rugs as in the 17th-century Manor House in England designed by Laura Ingrams for a young Baron and his family. This trend is carried through to a magical alpine getaway in St. Moritz, Switzerland by Studio Peregalli. Contemporary design is becoming more luxurious as in the Lee Mindel designed Palm Beach oceanfront. I hope you enjoy my pick of Elle Decor's five best in December.

Veranda's 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in November 2016

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 3, 2016 9:41:09 PM

My picks for the five best rooms with designer rugs in Veranda's November 2016 issue include Ann and Gordon Getty's Chinoiserie themed dining room and their Russian Ballet inspired music room in their Pacific Palisades, San Francisco mansion. I was exhilarated by Richard Hallberg's fresh take on a mountain retreat in Aspen and Anthony Baratta's Utah very different view of a ski lodge which he infused with bold quilt and plaid patterns. Finally we remember Atlanta Garden legend Ryan Gainey and his take on Napoleonic style. I hope you enjoy the magnificent variety.
