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: An Inspired Tribeca Apartment

When decorating her Tribeca digs, Industry Standard's Nicole Najafi found inspiration in the work of two of my favorite designers. Can you guess who?

If you guessed Ryan Korban and Miles Redd, you would be correct! In describing her space, Nicole comments, "I have fur everywhere, that’s my Ryan Korban side and the unexpected injections of color are all Miles Redd." It's a great example of referencing without duplicating.

Interiors: A High-Glam Parisian Perfumery

Guerlain Boutique by Peter Marino Architect

Step inside Maison Guerlain–an expansive, and historic, perfumery on the Champs-Elysées. Renovated by Peter Marino to celebrate its 100th anniversary, the boutique has all the glitz and glamour of a high-end (specifically, LVMH) brand. Marble, mirror, brass, and crystal adorn hallways and stairwells, beauty counters and display cases. I could easily get lost in the luxury!

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?
