A little more of Eric Cohler

I just wanted to wow you guys a little more with Eric Cohler.
The first several photos in this post is the room Eric Cohler
designed for last year's 2007 Kips Showhouse. It's a huge
area with very tall ceilings. I really liked how he used very
dark walls with white crown molding to give a sense of
drama that is fitting to the scale of the place.

It's interesting how he used paper
to section off the dining area.

Beautiful use of flowers in the vases.

Love the table scape and especially the
fireplace with the Greek key motif!

If you aren't able to tell, Eric Cohler is definitely a
fan of the Greek motif and stried armchairs as well.
Can't say I blame him as I love these two motifs very

Love the coffered ceilings and the zebra bench!

He certainly mixes a lot of designs together well.
Even got that one odd dining chair against the 3
matching ones.

The same living space at another angle.
Another gorgeous striped armchair.

Eric Cohler also does the natural
or more organic look very well.

Here's a modern kitchen with natural pine
cabinets for a rustic twist. Not a combination
you always see.

Light paneled wood ceilings and walls give this room
an organic style that blends well with its neutral
furnishings so the view becomes the real center of

Need I say more of the Greek motif?
Anything that particular stood out to you?

I agree, he's very versatile in his design style. I particularly like to "organic" dining room, with the effect of the outside being part of the room, and the use of perspex stands for the urns enhances that. I love perspex, as you know!

Dear Karen!

First of all, thank you for your amazing support! You have a really sensitive and kind heart. Thank you for sharing your story. I am so sorry to hear that you have been through so much... and I am happy that you were strong and courageous to find your true self again. You were so precisely to the point about parents. It is the same with mine. Communist Russia didn't really have the concept of depression!

And also thank you for your blog :o) It is really cheering me up every time I visit :o) It is such a pleasure to look through your careful selection of designs! And I really like how you make it very personal by adding small notes of what you like. It makes your blog very cosy and nice to be at, - as if I am having a conversation with a good friend.

Oh, and those rooms by Eric Cohler - I really want to walk in there and feel the textures, see the sparkles, feel the space... :o)

Sincerely yours,
