A designer's home is a showroom, a laboratory and idea generator when it comes to finishes, trim, fixtures and ideas. Designer Michel Boyd calls his style "curated luxe living," and puts his focus on making sure each object in his home is both useful and beautiful. Keeping glasses, plates and other everyday items in the same style and color family is just one way to bring a designer vision to your home design scheme.
The same gold and black color scheme continues from Boyd's living room to his dining room and kitchen. Editing is key in Boyd's view. "The best designers are great editors," he notes, "It's not always easy to practice restraint."
