I apologize for the brief (but beautiful!) post today — swamped with deadlines, meetings and illness. But I wanted to be sure to share this space that keeps me going whenever I get to steal a glance at it. A living room by designer Catherine Kwong for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase House 2013, it’s a 1970′s sophisticate’s dream. The Cy Twombly-inspired floor and the Milo Baughman-like chairs are leaving me dizzy with delight!
“The design was inspired by Mick and Bianca Jagger in the 1970’s – the young and wild, traipsing-to-Saint Tropez years. I was doing research for a client and discovered all of these beautiful old photos of Mick and Bianca that depicted a wild romance. They were impossibly stylish and full of excitement, with a bit of scandal, of course. So I designed this room for them; a place for late-night parties with rock royalty and the jet-set. I wanted the room to be just like Mick and Bianca: luxe and decadent, but with a rock ‘n roll edge.” ~ Catherine Kwong
