I don't know if any of you are watching Top Design, but
I am totally smitten with the designer Preston Lee
from this show.
Preston is a 27 year old designer who resides
in Los Angeles but is originally from Texas.
Can you believe that he opened his own design
firm at the age of 21 after working for 2 years
under Kenneth Brown. Incredible.
His designs are incredibly sophisticated, chic and sexy.
I love this outdoor space. Totally Chic but comfortable
and low to the ground.
Here are the seats, it looks like a posh club!
He has a great aesthetic for modern sensibility and for
adding pops of color where they should be. His spaces
have a certain "Wow" factor to them.
The other side to the same living room.
This is the dining room from the same space.
I love the wood finish of the table.
This space definitely screams "bachelor".
It's got lots of character. Love the
checkered cowhide rug.
Now the long tassles on this chair -
that's a great twist.
He is also adept at designing spaces that
have a larger and grand scale to them.
He never forgets the fresh flowers.
"Phew! Is he hot or what?"
This week will be the finale of the contest Top Design.
Last week, he started by designing this room. I am
totally drooling over the bright orange bench. His
wall treatment of grass wallpaper in a harlequin pattern
is brilliant. Always brilliant with texture and sophistication,
I'm really routing for him to win. Incredible talent.
