Whenever we’re asked about our favorite interior designers, Ilse Crawford is always at the top of the list. Her inspiring interiors are the perfect combination of modern and traditional. Each room that Crawford designs has a soulful character that’s brought into the mix through color and bits of pattern. Her rooms keep us intrigued, and that’s what a great designer should do. Her interiors integrate modern pieces in the most unexpected ways. In a modern country space, built-ins are painted in a deep eggplant shade, exposed beams add a rustic touch, and a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf is styled to perfection. In a living room, a teal sofa fits right into a wood-paneled living room filled with vintage pieces. With each space there are so many details to fall in love with. For more of Ilse’s work, we recommend picking up one of her books. Our favorite is Home Is Where The Heart Is.
