House Tour | A Jewel-Box Apartment

Today we are taking a peek into Jennifer Vaughn Miller's picture-perfect NYC Upper East Side apartment (as featured in Lonny magazine). It's luxe & lush, with an aura of days gone by. And I'm crushing on all of her fabulous velvet furnishings!

Just look at that picture window! Talk about framing the incredible NYC view perfectly ...

The vignettes and traditional detailing in this apartment are next to none. Every piece of furniture seems carefully chosen, and I love Jennifer's use of jewel tones in a few surprise moments. How lovely! To see more from Jennifer, click through to her portfolio.

House Tour | Chango & Co.

Today's house tour is a stunning New York brownstone designed by the talented design firm, Chango & Co. If you have not been following along with Susana and her design team, you absolutely must! This townhouse is the stuff dreams are made of ... let's take a look:

Pretty spectacular stuff, non? And the thing I love about Chango & Co.'s website is that they include 'Behind the Scenes', short videos, and Before & Afters. Here are few to wet your appetite:

Before & afters are always so satisfying. And that's just the tip of the iceberg - you can see much more over on the Chango & Co. portfolio here.

Designer Q&A | Ashley Goforth

Today I am thrilled to share two new projects from one of my favorite interior designers, Houston-based Ashley Goforth. Ashley's award-winning work has graced the pages of countless design publications, recently placing her as a LUXE gold list recipient, and she's become a favorite around the blogosphere as well.

Her design aesthetic really resonates with my own; she perfectly balances textures and shape, masterfully mixes traditional and contemporary design, and utilizes the most soothing color palettes. I recently had the opportunity to interview Ashley and I am excited to share it with you in today's installment of Designer Q&A:

Nancy Marcus: How would you describe your personal style?

Ashley Goforth: Classic, elegant and liveable.

NM: What do you love most about your career?

AG: I love the process of developing relationships with people while creating a home that truly reflects their individuality.

NM: Who has been your greatest professional influence?

AG: My last boss, Renea Abbott of Shabby Slips, for her generosity in time and spirit taught me much more than just creating a beautiful room; it strengthened my character.

NM: Is there a consistent ‘starting point’ you have for each of these rooms, or do you approach every room differently each time?

AG: I definitely have a formula in which I develop my interiors, but I always start a room with an important element: a rug, piece of art or a prized fabric.

NM: I love the soft hues and neutral palettes in your current projects – would you say this is a key element in your designs?

AG: I gravitate personally towards neutral layered interiors that incorporate soft tones but I am also fairly pragmatic: so I like the ability to transition looks with ease, and neutral upholstery makes this a reality.

NM: What is your next design venture?

AG: I would love to have an e-commerce site where I can sell some of my custom creations to the mass public.  It would be a compilation of all my favorite things!

NM: How exciting! I think I speak for all of us when I say that will be something we would be looking forward to. Thank you Ashley for sharing these two stunning brand-new projects with us!
