May I See Your I.D.?

The current issue of I.D. Magazine is all about the new wave of ornamentation, entitled "Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful" (has an eye patch ever looked so good?). Ornamentation appears to be the new minimalism. We're seeing it in flocked wallpaper, modern takes on vintage chandeliers, bright colors and pattern-mad, Pucci-like fabrics. Individuality is back in a big way and shows no sign of fading.





Just look at hot new designers, like team Wary Meyers (all the work above) and Top Design's eccentric Kelly Wearstler (the work down below). Where Wary Meyers' rooms are bohemian, hippy-chic, Kelly's design combines classic pieces with a modern, sexy twist. Both definitely take chances with color, mix eras, styles & pattern with wild abandon and seem to have a sense of daring panache. I'd love to go that crazy!





It's a cool collector's issue of I.D., and unlike Pop Life (see a few posts down), I know you can find this March/April issue on sale now.

I so want to be a minimalist but this tugs at my heart strings more!

Beautiful home decor images, have they started putting more interior shots in the magazine now? I haven't bought it previously because it was mainly fashion photography, but you are definitely tempting me to buy one!

I love all these looks, but the first photos is just to die for! The simple modern table and chairs, with the ornate chandelier fronting the fab wallpaper. Perfect!

crustation - these pix are from Wary Meyer's site and Kelly Wearstler site. I.D. has some photos, mostly design related, but the articles this month on ornamentation are really great.

glad you liked these!

i admire the extensive designs of Wary Meyers! i saw the ruby and ivory dining room on terramia, and was thinking about going about that design route in my own home. now that i see this posted again, i take it as a sign to be so daring. hopefully it will be okay in my kitchen and not give me a stomach ache!

I loved the Wary Meyers article in Domino. She looked so Bohemian in a couple of photos and then there's that pic of her in her awesome closet looking like a mad architect- just fabulous. I love the husband's paintings as well! And their bookshelf just kills me! However Kelly Wearstler I could take or leave. I'm a bit indifferent to that type of Hollywood hotel design. It seems like it has no soul. But thanks for posting about I-D mag- it's a fantastic source of inspiration!
