"Timeless Style" by Suzanne Kasler

Starting with the cover of  Suzanne's Latest book " "Timeless Style"
you see that there is an extraordinary style that transcends decor.
In this scrumptious book,( because that IS how I feel page after page).  I want to have more.

Suzanne has featured eight homes, from her very own Recency style Georgian in Buckhead, to 
an amazing four cottage compound  in Africa. Her friends who asked her to complete the  project, also own the cabin on Mt. Kenya where  Prince Phillip proposed to Kate Middleton.

As you have seen so far, Suzanne's has a wonderful time with color palettes, some are big surprises.
She will spend hours at Mercerie Parisienne which is a shop devoted to beautiful ribbons.
They will cut yard after yard for her of all kinds; upon returning to Atlanta, (just as I would) spreads them out on her bed, playing  and coming up with all kinds of color combinations. Kasler  says she has worked out some of her most interesting palettes that way.

This ceiling is done in a subtle metallic shimmer of Ralph Lauren paint.You will see her icy blues, platinum's, pale to richly saturated lilac's. Many of her clients are collectors, as is Suzanne, so the rooms will reflect and honor the great works of art sculpture and glazed ceramics

In the vignette above, there is a pattern in the grouping of antique globes,
that actually mimics that of  art on the wall. It takes a keen eye to accomplish this. Natural elements and the rustic also play a part in her design works.

Notice the light soothing shades against the dark wide plank floors. The subtle lavender linen covers on the stools.
All enhances the large Painting by Steven Seinberg
Enlarging the image brings out all of the subtleties of color on the French painted credenza.

In this Family Room orange in the Hermes blanket and pillows with all natural linen just works. I love the break of color in the curtain panels.
It is a way to  color block and anchor a room when there is great ceiling height and many windows.

Prepare to be surprised!

Order Suzanne's "Timeless Style"  here.

Suzanne's award are numerous including being named to The Architectural Digest's AD100 list in 2012. She has also been featured in many major design magazines

Suzanne's designs are beautiful. Love the powder room with the purple & silver metallic wallpaper - the perfect room to go bold! Also love the vignette with the artwork and globes - it's really pleasing to the eye and done perfectly :-)
