I hope that all of you are having a wonderful week! Since my Little MacBook Pro went to the hospital, I have been using my iPad. I have learned a lot more about this little creature, but had only used it for applications and viewing beautiful images, and it just cannot compete with the MacBook. I am as slow as a snail typing here, and I am trying to get around to commenting on your posts. Hopefully my macbaby will be back soon. Until then, forgive the mess, lol!

When designer Stan Topol was asked to design  a home for his clients, he called in designer Reynolds Brown and architects Rob Herscoe and Michael Hajjar.  Topol's goal was to create a home that appeared to have been in this spot for a long period of time.  

Topol desires a refined interior, one that is comfortable and casual. Using one or two grand pieces of furniture in each room, Topol believes that less is more and builds around the star pieces. 

In this home Topol painted the interior with light colors that compliment the extensive collection of painting by famous artists, and also covered the dining room wall in leather.  

This truly is a beautiful, comfortable villa.  ENJOY!

Teresa, The art work takes center stage. It looks like he designed the room around the art.I hardly noticed the decor, my eye went straight to the art.Beautiful paintings!

Hello Splendid: My Mac is acting funny and may be joining yours soon. Beautiful staircase. Thanks for coming by. You are a loyal reader and it means so much to me. I wish you had come to the Design Bloggers conference. We could have huddled together at the new girl table.
