I was first introduced to Jason Rogenes work while I was volunteering for the Friends of Duane Park Loft Tour . The loft was designed by the very talented and one of my all time favorite interior designer Ghislaine Vinas.
Jason is a Brooklyn based designer who saw the potential of using a material that was originally designed to protect packaged electronics to transform it into beautiful sculptures. Styrofoam is strong yet lightweight raw material that can be manipulated to form different shapes.
Even his drawings have this futuristic playfulness. They will be great at any kids room.
Don’t mind if I just crawl back into bed until the rain stops.
Enjoy your weekend!
Now that spring has kind of sprung (weather is very unpredictable these days) and the temperatures are warmer, it has me daydreaming of far away places with amazing views.
Casa Olivi, a 300 year old farmhouse, was recently restored and renovated by Markus Wespi and Jérôme de Meuron architectural firm.
Simple, minimalist interiors.
360° panoramic views of the Italian countryside.
Can you believe this beauty was partially destroyed in a fire several years ago?

It’s been a really busy week around here. Hope you take some time and enjoy your weekend.
I hear the weather will cooperate, too.
Last week Emily and I visited the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, and I was really impressed with the creativity and talent of the tables exhibition at the Dining by Design event. DIFFA is one of the greatest supporters and educator of people who live with HIV/AIDS.
Nothing is more elegant than black and white, adding stripes to the mix, it takes it to a whole different level. Designed by Architectural Digest.
David Stark and Benjamin moore created this color explosion of different patterns, color, shapes, and textures but with the same matte finish uniting everything together.
Making a statement with the huge drum shade ceiling fixture and monochromatic color scheme. Designed by Vern Yip.
This tablescape was one of my favorites. It was designed by Echo.
Designed by Frette for the New York Times. Who doesn’t like dining outside under a tent lid with strings of light, so romantic.
Designed by Parson School and 2Michaels Design
Ralph Lauren Home created this modern, sophisticated tablescape with a waterfall wall as the backdrop. It felt so serene.
