I love the angle that New England Home approached in their "Two of a Kind" article on design duo Jim Gauthier and Susan Stacy. The partnership between Gauthier-Stacy formed in 1996 and happens to be a high-end design firm based out of Boston. What I love about the article is that it shows that obviously they can work well together but still have very different preferences and style as observed in both of their own homes. There are things that I love both of these spaces. How about the bold black and white chairs with splashes of orange in Gauthier's home and that custom whimsical light fixture over the dining table in Stacy's home is killing me.

Anyway to read the article go here and to see more of their work go here.

P.S. - I first found the link to New England Homes over here. ...one of my favorite home decor & design blogs. In fact go here to see another fabulous spread that Julie posted from New England Home Magazine.

The black and white slipper chairs are to die for! I also really love the collection of art in this home- especially the piece above the console-- gorgeous use of color!

i die for that umbrella lighting thing over her banquette. do you think it is rigged to actually light or just for whimsys sake? also in that same shot love the fez on the bust.

At least one lamp in every home should be adorned with a Fez.

Thanks so much for stopping by La Lamp Shade!

I love how they've used artwork like wallpaper in the second photo. I have dreams of doing this in a future house someday.

All rooms are so interesting, love all of the fun pieces and decorations! You are right these designers can definitely make it work, in a very creative way. I am re-decorating my master bedroom, these ideas are great for inspiration, thanks for sharing. Now if I can only get a good deal on wholesale flooring, I will be all set ;) Hope you have a wonderful week!
