Julie Bowen’s House

Did anyone else open up the first few pages of In Style, see this, and think “Huh. Gwenyth looks kinda weird in this picture. And her style sure has changed since H&G featured her house in the Hamptons..”? I did. Just wondering:

It must be the blonde updo and the big smile. By the way, that’s Julie Bowen. Her sister, Molly Luetkemeyer, founder of M. Design Interiors decorated Julie’s Studio City house. It’s a fun mix. While we see a few icons from our design drinking games past (I spy a hand mold and a turquoise foo dog), I think her work has a fresh take. She is able to mix in a bunch of eras, styles, colors and textures without creating a sloppy mish-mosh; it becomes a style of its own, one that has to do a careful balancing act to work. It’s not quite Regency, it’s not quite crazy enough to go under that ubiquitous “eclectic” moniker – I’m dubbing it “Vicente Wolf on a very tightly controlled acid trip”. I also like it because I have that elephant on the coffee table in the living room. I got it at Neiman Marcus Last Call for like thirty bucks:

I’ve been cleaning my office like crazy this week (it seems like I say that every week) but it’s true. I cannot put this killer 1966 issue of House Beautiful’s Home Decorating away until I get my favorite pictures scanned. Here are a few fun ones to liven up your day!

This might be the first time we’ve had an actual person in a flickr fave. No wait, I think there was a child on a hammock once, but that’s it! I love everything about this shot that Stacy Anne Longenecker added to our Fresh New Spaces Group. It’s a darling shot of the two of them, and I am loving the art arrangement and shelves behind them!

So while I was perusing her Apartment Set, I came across this clever idea:

This week I was looking through the Fresh New Spaces Group on flickr and the rooms that really jumped out at me were the ones where I could really see the owners’ personalities and personal style. Here are a few of my favorites:

I just love this living room shot from lipstickonmyteeth. I also love that the caption reads “The picture I chose if I have to sum up my style with one image”:

Be sure to check out the lipstickonmyteeth blog here!

This kitchen area certainly reflects the personal style of kimhas6cats (of the fabulous blog desiretoinspire):

Bright colors and a mix of styles balance out in La Vie Toni’s scrumptious living room:

Be sure to check out her blog here. Be warned – some of the shots will make you really hungry. Right now I am craving a sandwich I just saw over there.
