Diseño de dormitorios muy cálidos

Les muestro algunos diseños de dormitorios en tonos cálidos:


The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

El desierto es el entorno de estas viviendas modernas, rodeadas de  silencio y bajo un cielo repleto de estrellas.
Y eso es justamente lo que determina estas viviendas tan abiertas, la exposicion del exterior, y la incorporacion de las visiones al interior.

El desierto, aun con su economia de verde y agua, resulta interesante, con sus piedras sus plantas autoctonas y esas estrellas en la noche, que nos permiten disfrutar de climas unicos, nos transporta a ideas de lugares remotos y atractivos por si mismos.

El desierto, tiene magia, atesora un cielo unico e incomparable, salidas y caidas de sol unicas y un clima de gran amplitud durante el dia.
La vista se extiende como lugares infinitos y la pura naturaleza seduce a los propietarios, asi surjen ideas de diseño cada vez mas originales y vanguardistas.




Nuevas propuestas de fachadas minimalistas en los desiertos, un entorno bien fuerte que determina una arquitectura bien abierta y vidriada.

Algunos livings tienen la suerte de ser absolutamente transparentes, todos vidriados y con su piso y techo forman un ambiente unico y especialisimo.

Con mobiliario muy moderno, y la integracion perfecta al medio, es lo unico que se necesita si se cuenta con un excelente entorno.

Es obvio decir,  que el buen entorno es el desencadenante de estos diseños, que se acompañan con accesorios, ademas del mobiliario, como pantallas, LCD de grandes dimensiones y toda la tecnologia moderna en luces y electronica.




You never know where inspiration for a story will strike.  I was reading Page 6 yesterday and they mentioned that Cornelia Guest (above) is putting her ancestral home, Templeton, on the market again.  In case you don't know, Cornelia's mother was the chic style icon C.Z. Guest.  Templeton in Old Westbury on Long Island was actually the guesthouse on the estate of White Eagle, designed by Carrere and Hastings, which was owned by Cornelia's great-grandfather Henry Phipps and inherited by Frederick Guest, her grandfather.  He felt the house was too big and grand for his family to smaller quarters on the property.  Of course, Templeton was added onto and now the 28 room home on 15 acres includes 11 bedrooms, a pool, tennis courts, barn, formal gardens, and a greenhouse. I've included photos of how it looked while C.Z. was still alive that were published after her death in 2003 and more recent photos. 

C.Z. Guest in her garden in Mainbocher opera coat. I was actually privileged to meet C.Z. at a big beauty event at Bergdorf Goodman shortly after I moved to New York in 2001.  She was there to promote her garden line of products of course I bought one of her candles.  It came in a beautiful flower pot and included seeds you could plant after the candle had burned down.  She was just as chic as you could imagine, even into her 80's!

A look at the the downstairs library which features club chairs and a wall banquette upholstered in French printed cotton. The walls and bookcases are also covered with the fabric.

The desk in the ground floor library.

A John Singer Sargent portrait of a baby Winston Guest with his grandmother, Anne Phipps, sits above a small sofa.  It is a study for the final portrait which hangs at Old Westbury Gardens.

A look at the same room from House & Garden, June 2004.

The hallway with its famous leopard carpet.

As the caption from House & Garden, states, the leopard carpet conceals muddy paw prints from all the dogs. 

The dining table holds stacks of Winston Guest's old equestrian books piled up by Cornelia. "I just have so many books. My father used to say, 'No more books!'"

A wider look at the dining room.

The blue and white room overlooks the garden.

A wider view of the blue and white room with it's tiger carpet and portrait of C.Z. by Salvadore Dali above the mantel.

The dramatic painting in the salon was purchased by Winston Guest in Paris.

The sunroom that looks like it had it's original lattice removed.

The entry foyer holds very large elephant tusks, a trophy from Winston Guest's big game hunting. The ocelot hide chairs were featured in Bruce Weber's book A House Is Not a Home.
