The name Sukio comes from the Japanese word for "like" or "love" but now has become synonymous with what I find luxe, lovely, and too chic not to share! My aesthetic of choice: MODERN GLAMOUR – a style that marries multiple ideas, viewing traditional notions of glamour through a sophisticated lens. In a word, it’s sooo Sukio! - Desiré

Interiors: Raji Radhakrishnan's Eclectic Mix

Raji Radhakrishnan's Virginia Home

I must give a Sukio shout-out to local designer Raji Radhakrishnan. Her Northern Virginia home, recently featured on the cover of Luxe Magazine, is filled to the brim with assorted pieces of various eras and origins. Contemporary meets mid-century modern meets art deco... It all comes together in this beautifully eclectic space. Favorite features include Raji's awesome art collection, high-gloss office, and killer door moldings. Très original!

Flashback: An Apartment Makeover by Steven Gambrel

New York Apartment by Steven Gambrel

The fab faux fireplace in last week's Taylor Howes post reminded me of this makeover from Domino's archive. Designer extraordinaire Steven Gambrel completely transformed a tiny New York apartment with paint, smart furniture choices, and architectural elements, like the cast-stone, faux fireplace. The space is still a source of inspiration with lots of clever design solutions (e.g., grosgrain-trimmed bookshelves, painted-on molding, etc.) and a sophisticated, very-unrental-like color palette.

Tamara Magel's Minimalist Guest Room for Holiday House Hamptons

Designed by Tamara Magel, this guest bedroom is picking up steam on the Internet, finding its way to Pinterest boards, Tumblr blogs, and the occasional Instagram. It's easy to see why the space is so popular. Beautifully simplistic, Tamara uses a black-and-white palette peppered by textural touches and contemporary pieces. What's not to love?

Interiors: London Apartment by Taylor Howes

Taylor Howes, Trevor Square Apartment, London

Recently perused the latest issue of Rue Magazine and stumbled upon this gem of a space. Designed by Taylor Howes Designs, the 3,000 square foot London home is sleek and sophisticated, with polished brass at every turn (my favorite of which is the 1960's French dining table). Though layered with art and accessories, the neutral palette creates a calming oasis for a couple on the go.
