Recently I have had the good fortune of getting to know Simone Lagies. She is a fabulous interior designer and stylist. I almost died when I found her beautiful former home in San Diego, California published in Better Homes and Gardens. She has so much talent and has been a great inspiration for me running my business in the last few months. She is now helping me polish my home and finally getting projects done around here. You can find her home decked out in spooky touches for Halloween here- http://www.bhg.com/halloween/indoor-decorating/halloween-home-in-black-and-white/
Now she has completed her home here in Kelowna and has done a breathtaking job. It’s not every day you get to tour a home like this and I’m excited to share it with you. You can see how her style has evolved over the last few years into a bit more of a reclaimed/ industrial feel with the softness of a french salon. Can you picture it? She sights Restoration Hardware as a major influence in her work. I really appreciate that she doesn’t take her designs too seriously and isn’t afraid to just start tacking on upholstery with a sense of abandon. That of course, is part of the look, a lived in look where you can put your feet up with a good book and glass of wine. I’ll now let her pictures speak for themselves.
This is the main wall you see when you come in the door, beautiful desk to work at in the living room.
Simone is a fabulous hostess and what better way to make her guests feel comfortable but a full service bar?
Her upholstery technique is so interesting, it really does look like she pulled this from an old French salon.
Simone’s kitchen display is full of fabulous thrift store finds all curated carefully.
Even the bathroom reminds you of beachy days gone by.
Simone uses carefully chosen white layers to be restful and serene in her bedroom.
Well I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. I will be posting a second half of the home tour with her outdoor living space and home office where she does all of these beautiful projects.
