After a stellar ten-year run,  Susan Bednar Long and Christina Sullivan Roughan,  the New York City-based power duo behind the much touted Tocar Interior Design firm, have embarked on separate paths.

As a team, the designers were known for deftly blending modern and traditional elements in every project. Their style focus is tailored, crisp and sophisticated and they never missed the mark. Here is just a sample of some of the deliciously livable spaces that the girls created together. We wish them all the best in their new ventures and look forward to seeing what comes next.

As I mentioned in my last post, New England Home has launched a Connecticut edition and I couldn’t be more excited. In the premiere issue, I did an artist profile on Cornelia Kubler Kavanagh, a sculptor who translates the beauty and brutality of nature into sensuous form. Read about her amazing work (as seen below) and see the gorgeous interior designs in the magazine which is on sale at many of the major book and grocery stores in Fairfield County. For those of you who can’t get hold of the actual magazine, click here for Cornelia’s story.

I’m excited to report that New England Home magazine has launched a Connecticut edition and I’m so pleased to have been asked to contribute a piece for the premiere issue.

The magazine, which offers a sophisticated look at area designers, architects, products and artists,  is now expanding its focus to the exceptional design world to be found in Fairfield County.

In this era of rough seas for the publishing biz it does my heart good to see such a lovely and esteemed magazine float confidently through the flotsam.

Kudos!

Last month Architectural Digest had a story about a NYC duplex renovated by fave design firm Shelton Mindel & Associates.  Lee Mindel and Peter Shelton worked with their senior interior designer Grace Sierra on this beautifully restrained project. They only had three months to turn this time-worn limestone duplex across from Central Park into a chic and modern family home.  Despite the limitations and challenges, the result is stunning! Ooh La La!

Welcome to 2010 everyone!

I’m pleased to kick off a new season by posting some images from virtuoso designer Amie Weitzman.  The former Design Director for Joseph Abboud Inc. and designer for the Ralph Lauren Home Collection, Weitzman’s alchemy of earthy textures and crisp editing give all of her spaces a livable agelessness.  To punctuate that mix, she brings the same creative vision that she was known for as a fabric designer to her custom furnishings and textiles.  I am excited to be doing a story on her amazing Connecticut lake house for the March issue of Litchfield Magazine (see story here) and hope to publish a piece on another beautiful home she did in Westchester before long.

Last night the 2009 Interior Design Best of Year awards were held at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in NYC. One of my favorite firms among the merit award winners was Interior Design Hall of Famers, Shelton, Mindel & Associates. Their materials-driven approach combines luscious wood tones, metals and stone surfaces with crisp, clean and modern design to create that elusive comfy-yet-utterly cool balance that classic modernism is built on.  I particularly like these residential spaces:

The shelter magazine industry continues its grisly decline…

Today, industry insider Stacy Kunstel, reports in her excellent tweets at StacyStyle that Metropolitan Home is going belly up by the end of the year.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel a bit queasy.
