mark-d-sikesI’m a big Mark D Sikes fan, and after having just spent a couple of hours poring over his latest book, I’ve become even more obsessed with his work. Mark is an LA based designer with a seriously chic aesthetic; whether he’s doing full blown print, pattern and color like this NYC apartment or keeping a room neutral and calming, the results are equally beautiful.

He has done so many gorgeous homes that it is hard to play favorites, but I think that if I had to, I would choose his own home which was featured in House Beautiful a few years ago. The bones of the house are pretty great to begin with but Mark’s design of the home is so thoughtful, from the custom wrought iron banister they installed upstairs to the upholstered family room walls (in my favorite fabric, Samarkand) to the multitude of built in bookshelves. I also appreciate how everything is styled in his house; you can tell that he’s a ‘more is more’ kind of person when it comes to accessories and collected items, but everything has its place and looks like it was meant to be there. I want to move right in, or at least spend some time relaxing in that backyard with a good book.

Scroll on for more pictures, I bet you’ll love the house as much as I do…
