Design crush: Liz Caan

Boston based interior designer Liz Caan first caught my eye in Ivy & Piper's October 2011 issue with a darling, and classic little boys room, and I have been hooked ever since. 

Her interiors are infused with bold color and pattern, and she often mixes luxury with low cost, creating layered, and lived in spaces.
This is where my obession began.  Vertical stripes, and a tufted upholstered bed.  What's not to love?

I love this antique bookshelf used to display important toy collections
High contrast meets in this corner nook with a navy chevron pillow from twinkle living, and vertical wall stripes.
This girls room is playful and pretty with the beautiful turquoise toile wallpaper, and striped window treatments.
More high contrast with a chevron stair carpet, and vintage striped upholstered chair.
The kitchen floors were painted in a red and white checkerboard pattern, and balance out the black and white stripe on the walls.

The black and white mosaic floors in this classic bathroom are truly striking.

Love the sophisticated layers in this master bedroom.

Even the mudroom has high impact.  The beadboard helps break up the black and white stripes, keeping it from becoming too busy.

This room says sophisticated and glamorous to me.  Those plum colored nailhead sofa's against the turquoise walls and diamond carpet?  Come on.
The ultimate in cozy cabin chic. 

This space reminds me of an old barn stable turned classic cabin reading room.  I'm dying over that lucite trunk.

A classic beachy backdrop with bold pattern and color.
Love that little chartreuse dresser from bungalow 5, and the painted stripe floors.

One of these days I will have a powder room with walls covered in chiang mai.

Traditional furnishings get a graphic update in this bedroom.

Love the use of space in this oddly shaped room, the color, and contrast.

Shower curtain panels in Kravet's velvet gate tuxedo fabric?  Yes please.
A sophisticated breakfast nook with a pair of upholstered benches and copper lantern.  Classic fantastic.
 More bungalow 5 goodness, and throw pillows from Jonathan Adler and Alan Campbell.
That quatrefoil window steals the show.
How about that large scale art piece?  Now that's a conversation starter.
Bold color mingles with antiques and flea market finds in this dining room.  Love the simple cushion on top of these little yellow bungalow 5 stools.

Liz's shop front.  It welcomes you right in.
And, inside her shop.  Go bold!
A perfectly styled workspace
And the design genius herself, Liz Caan.  I definitely plan on crushing on her for years to come.
