So in our Hacienda Style post there were a few pics of celeb homes- one being Fashion Photographer Mario Testino’s LA home as seen in a Vogue editorial. Kind of  genius.

Living this post from yatzer. Alketas Pazis has this amazing temporary showroom, connected to his living space, to showcase his love for collecting all things old and interesting. A quote “A design has deeper meaning when it is influenced from the past and reinterpreted into the future”. Very chic.

Just stumbled upon this amazing interior design “bureau” located in Switzerland. This was started by Paul Yunacopoulos-Gross and wife Sophie. Together they create such amazing, simple, modern, warm spaces. Check out some great images below taken from their site.

Robin Standefer & Stephen Alesch

During a nice relaxing weekend upstate we had some time to catch up on some light magazine reading… The new issue of Architectural Digest was a pleasant surprise- the “AD 100″ issue featured 100 of the top industry interior designers and architects of 2011.

David Lynch

David Lynch

Aside from his obscure movies and even coffee endeavors, David Lynch has also been making furniture and is soon to open a club/bar in Paris. Named after the Mulholland Drive movie, Silencio Club has been kept under wraps. The space, decor, and furntiure has his name on it.  
Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway

It’s not always about severity and minimalism. We also love romantic, warm, and personality. Tastmaker Ernest Hemingway is our perfect example. Pictured here is a look at his Key West home in Florida where he spent more than 10 years writing.
Milo Baughman

Milo Baughman

Known mainly for his furniture he did for Thayer Coggin in the 70′s Milo Baughman was a true modernist and fantastic designer.  We love the chrome mix with leather and textured fabrics.
Tom Ford

Tom Ford

Most of us know Tom Ford for his epic career at Gucci, YSL, and his current collection he does under his name but many are unaware that not only was Tom ahead of the game in fashion but also in the interiors world as well.  This was his residence in London that he sold some...

Via The North Elevation: Warren Platner crafted his own brand of luxurious and opulent modernism throughout the 1970s, utilizing brass, gold leaf, fur, and his famous sculptural wire chairs for Knoll. See a great retrospective at Dwell.

James Perse

These simple, sophisticated pieces from designer James Perse hit the nail on the head. They really convey a laid back lifestyle perfect for your beach house or weekend home.
Donald Judd

Donald Judd

A must for any Judd fan. You can custom order through the Chinati Foundation or some say these “unicorns” can be found here. Either way, they are breathtaking.
John Pawson

John Pawson

This home in Sweden designed by architect John Pawson for Fabien Baron is mouth watering. Can’t think of anything that we would change. Truly an inspiration for the modern minimalist.
Scott Bromley

Scott Bromley

Scott Bromley the designer behind Studio 54 – now in his 70′s is still an inspiration to us all.  His role at 54 and in NY’s beach spot Fire Island are epic.   Still hard at work at Architects Bromley Caldari here is a look at one of his projects the Ocean View House.  This...
