This month's Elle Decor has a beautiful townhouse decorated by William Diamond and Anthony Baratta. When modern art is on the walls, it can be hard to compete with color and pattern, so the design duo put all of the flashy stuff on the floor...in the custom rugs that reflect the owners' taste in art. Frank Stella tones of gray and blue, Matisse inspired runners, and nods to Mondrian abound.
For us, this kitchen has a really refreshing, new look (which is hard to do with kitchens). The gingham pattern is going to be our new go-to pattern when putting in kitchen floors. We are also intrigued by the upstairs bath, which has "reverse painted mirrored walls. Fabulous.
