Williams Sonoma at Home

I was leafing through the March 2008 issue of House Beautiful when I saw a photo of chairs on a stair landing that reminded me of the new Williams-Sonoma Home store in New York. When I looked closer, one of the names of the designers, David DeMattei, sounded familiar. Then I realized that he is the group president for Williams-Sonoma and I actually met him at the opening party last fall. The home has a Williams-Sonoma feeling but is not a literal translation of the store. I'm swamped with work so for more information, you can check out the details at House Beautiful online. Bon Weekend!

I saw it online & thought..no wonder I'm sooo addicted to their line. His taste is impeccable. I actually enjoy the sprinkling of sunny yellows. Yellow & I are not friends but here we're buddies.
Still nutz about the the blue & whites though....

Love all of these photos and the indications that depth of design is returning to current interiors. I know that we are going to lag a little in Los Angeles, but the warmth of these interiors will catch on soon. Thanks.
Have a great week-end!

I was absolutely in love with the house when I saw it in HB, but I have to disagree that it's not a literal translation - it's as close as you can get. Looking at the resources and general feel, 99% of all the major pieces came from WS (and, of course, it looks great).

twin2trip said...

I remember that House Beautiful issue well. That makes sense because I thought it looked like WS Home as well.

Love it!

HC- We are huge fans!
If you love this house you should also check out Dave and Patrick's gorgeous place in Napa which was in House Beautiful's May 2009 issue.
Keep up the great work!

Hi Heather-


Wonderful post on David and Patrick--who are indeed very talented and very devoted to design, and are very worldly and well-traveled partners.

Williams Sonoma Home is a superb catalog (head office is in San Francisco))--and it is worth noting that more than 20 per cent of clients are designers. Designers understand the quality--and that you can fast-order custom upholstery. Great to know.

Wow - seriously gorgeous home. And that kitchen?! Love all of the blue and white pieces - I am currently obsessed (as evidenced by my growing collection, shop and blog!).

Sonya said...

Wow- classic but contemporary and dynamic..don't want to seem too mystical or w/e, but life energy seems to flow comfortably above and around the curves, flourishes and arabesques...

Helen Cox said...

I want to create rooms like these! I particularly love the stacked crockery. It's so country chic!

Kitty said...

delightful! i'll have you know this post solved a few problems for me! I was having issues with a deep mantle and 2 blank walls on either side of the fireplace. since my color schemes are so similar to the posted photos, i was able to really get a feel for what simple book shelving might do for the problem area! yours are helpful posts for a writer with limited visualization skills!!! thanks!

Kate said...
