House Beautiful Inspiration -- by Maine Design!
How delighted I was when my mother finally brought in her House Beautiful December/January issue and I opened it to see this incredible spread by our long-ago store manager Jason Maine! It was over 15 years ago that he worked at Tierra - and he went on to work at other furniture dealers in Los Angeles - but most importantly it all lead to him working for the venerable Michael Smith for years. Now he owns Maine Design with his wife Katie, and is featured in 12 pages of HB -- Bravo Jason!
The Brunschwig Bombay wallpaper custom printed on mylar is absolutely genius in this teen's bedroom -- the canopy and slightly off kilter Uzbek inspired window covering are a bit much - but I love the orange and the large scale suzani on the bed.
Mirrored, arched window panels, overscale stone mantle and exotic accessories in this courtyard make for a dramatic garden interlude in the middle of the home.
I love the moucharabie panels in the windows of the media room as well as the Maine Design Bolster sectional - fun stuff.
