Tour Designer Thom Filicia’s New Inviting Yet Sophisticated Home

 

Thom Filicia is best known for an Emmy Award–winning television personality on shows like the original 2003 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and 2018’s Get a Room with Carson & Thom, both on Bravo.  Eight years ago, Filicia decided to sell the SoHo apartment where he had resided for a decade and move to a neighborhood with a bit more breathing room.  A floor-through unit in a modern building designed by the South African architect Lindy Roy caught his eye, thanks to a layout with a strong separation between social and personal spaces.  After spending four months in construction redoing floors, bathrooms, lights, and counters, Filicia set about decorating the 1,800-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment. The rooms include a mix of his own pieces, both from his Thom Filicia Home Collection and his to-the-trade New York showroom Sedgwick & Brattle, along with vintage furnishings and the artwork he has collected over the years. “I’m a single guy, so I wanted it to be timely and timeless, sophisticated yet inviting,” he explains, adding that he loves to entertain.

5 Ways to Create an Indoor Garden

Happy Friday! I love spend the time in my backyard garden on Friday afternoon simply enjoying some warm late-afternoon sunshines and catching up the readings from design magazine. Specially, at this season, with our lemon tree producing a lot of fruits and roses in full bloom, it is just one of the most beautiful moments when summer just starts.  How about you? Do you also enjoy your backyard on this beautiful Friday afternoon.

Then, of course, we want to bring all of these beautiful flowers and greeneries indoor to create an indoor oasis.  If you are like me and obsessed with indoor-outdoor living, here are 5 ways to create an indoor garden:

  1. Yes, hang a flower wreath right in your front door.

IMG_9179

2. Pick up blooms and greeneries from your backyard and casually put them everywhere–in the dining room, on the counter, by the bed, yes, everywhere and a lot of them.

3. Intently create a separate garden space for a group of potted plants by the stairs or under the skylights.

4. Bring outdoor garden in by using floor-to-ceiling windows.

Lavender is Ladylike


Wouldn’t you agree with me that lavender is ladylike ?  It’s refreshing, chic and elegant.  It’s a symbol of spring garden.  When it reaches middle of February we are really looking forward to spring.  Lavender , blush, pale blue with the pops of bright yellow and  pink truly make this living room a heaven.  Mix-and-match of chinoiserie, stripes and bold exquisite geometric pattern on the sofa trims make the room formal, sophisticated and whimsical.

A Mix-and-Match Living Room

From beginning of the year, we truly have fun to mix and match the room designs for the projects.  There are several key factors to bring everything together with harmony in a depth:

  1. Repeat the color palette to get the flow going.
  2. Use same colors but in different shades.
  3. Use same colors but in different textures.
  4. Laying the room to bring interest and depth to the room.
  5. Always pick up colors from area rugs or artworks for the rest of furnishings.
  6. Muted neutrals provide the best backdrop.

Here is a living room we just designed.  The patterns, textures and colors in the artwork is the key to inspire the overall decor.

 

Happy Tuesday

Friday Vibes

It’s Friday before Halloween.  We, for sure, have a lot of fun to continue our Halloween deco in the studio.

After

We all feel cheerful in an open  room.  Here is what we did for this sitting room makeover:

  1. Convert the window to a French patio door and make the room airy and open.
  2. The color blocks  make the space upbeat and youthful.
  3. Pink upholster chairs with fashionable pillows add a touch of femininity.
  4. Abstract modern art brings room alive.
  5. Geometric pattern carpet makes room feel upscale.
