Spotlight on Jeffrey Bilhuber
As much as I enjoy admiring pared back more modern spaces with bare walls and little in the way of décor accessories, I can’t seem to reign in my desire for a cosy inspiring spaces with loads of things to look at. I do like a well-stocked room and I am drawn to, without apology, rooms with an abundance of well curated objects, be that walls full of paintings or a beautifully styled coffee table so it's no surprise that I'm drawn to his design style.
I have a little bit of a design crush on Jeffrey Bilhuber ever since I bought his book The Way Home -Reflections on American Beauty . His rooms look so lived in, with layers of history as if no effort were expended at all, juxtaposing the past whilst embracing the present, ever mindful of the personality and desires of the homeowner. A careful mix of antiques and new pieces, eclecticism, fabulous fabrics and beautiful artwork, the homes he decorates have a beautiful almost tangible nostalgic feeling. His ability to ‘read’ a home, to know instinctively what it needs in terms of decoration, is everything I love about his interiors.
Enough said…turn away now if you’re into minimalistic interiors…
