We’re big fans of the bold, graphic designs of Tibi designer Amy Smilovic. There’s really no one who does downtown cool with an uptown twist better than Smilovic, all clean lines and quirky patterns. As it goes, fashion designers tend to have supremely chic homes, and Smilovic’s Greenwich pad, as seen in Rue, is no exception. Bright patterns, cool monochrome, classic pieces with a regency twist – this home has it all.
How cool is that wallpaper? It’s like a way more sophisticated version of the doodles we used to draw in our notebook during math class in high school. We’re loving the little peek of the citron chaise lounge at right, and that bright red pop at the end of the bed. Classic hotel style bedding is contrasted by a eclectic Persian rug, and the Chinoiserie cabinet at the left adds yet another dimension to the space. This is a bedroom that’s light and bright but not at all absent of color or pattern.
Meanwhile, the living room, while still featuring bright pops of color (this time yellow and turquoise are the accents), is a bit more subdued and classic, with Regency style pieces in black and white. That lucite coffee table is no small potatoes either. Loks like a vintage piece to us. The home clearly gets a ton of sunlight, which is all the more reason to have fun with color – the space won’t ever look too small or too dark.
Even the bathroom, with its stunning blue damask wallpaper and teardrop mirror, give color a whirl. And look at that itty bitty Hicks pendant – how chic! The blue in the wallpaper is picked up again in the agate bookends in the living room, as well as the blue in the office area and dining room. We love seeing a color scheme carried throughout a home, and Smilovic’s done a great job of carrying the bright royal blue throughout hers.
Let’s talk about this bathroom. Helloooo, wallpaper! White marble, a cooler than cool light fixture, silver and glass accents. What’s not to love?
And last but more certainly not least, how adorable is Smilovic out in her backyard with her tiny little dog?
