Designer Spotlight – Tyler Dawson Design

Designer Spotlight – Tyler Dawson Design

As often happens, I was working on a post for this morning and got gorgeously distracted by a stunning designer portfolio.
So…I changed gears a little and am pretty excited to share with you the amazing work of 

Um…yah…dying over this.
A few points to note/reasons why I’m loosing my mind over this portfolio:
1. the gratuitous use of gold
Anyone who loves brass as much as I do, is aces in my books…aces.
PS…I cried last night when Sarah Richardson found a stunning brass desk for $150 and proceeded to get rid of the gold- literally…tears in my eyes.
2. the amazeballs wallpaper
I need NEEEEEEEEEDDDDD that brown floral.
3. the pattern play
Florals in love with ikats…hell yes.
4. the vintage chandys that grace every room
I don’t think I love much of anything more than a brass Venini.
5. the brass animals everywhere
Adore a gold elephant.
6. the mix of vintage and modern
Ms. Dawson’s blending skills are high…she’s totes a decor mixologist.
And….most importantly….
7. the fact that someone besides me embraces the idea of painting living room walls pink
She completely and totally had me at hello with that first room- the walls are the perfect shade of rose.
And PS, I want to repaint my living room to a warmer and brighter pink…thinking I want the one she used.
Oh and see those brass curtain rods…that’s what mine look like only here’s the greatest news….mine run the entire length of my living room wall…swear to god…I love my curtain rods as much as I love any single other thing in my house…and that includes the marble in the kitchen so yes…LOVE the wall poles…that sounds dirty.
So, there you have it.
Portfolio heaven in my books.

    Gorgeous!! And that’s a word I rarely use. Great colors, patterns, old and modern…I want to move in. Funny enough I’m in the midst of painting my office pink and already have that mirror! I decided I needed a purely feminine work place.

    Thanks for sharing, but they are not my style..I prefer modern, monochromatic but with happy touches, minimalist but at the same time, exquisite style!

    The second I saw the living room I thought it looked like you. Please do share your source for these awesome gold curtain rods, not that I could afford them. But I’ve been looking for some pretty curtains rods and have come up empty. I would love some lucite ones too but they are very $$!

    agree with everything you said.

    My favorites would be the elephants and Pierre Frey paper.

    Guh so jealous of your drapery rods. I wanted to do that exact thing in the nursery but was having a hard time finding it!

    Just in love with photo #3. The colors, graphic rug, and the fireplace make for a great space!

    The gold and brass is what struck me as well- I love, love, LOVE it!…and in those first couple of images- my heart was beating a little quicker!

    Can I first just say, why do people insist on leaving snarky comments under “anonymous”??? Can’t they keep their unhappiness to themselves??? This is absolutely fabulous and I feel bad for people who have to go with monochromatic because they have no imagination…hehehe…I just left that last comment so I could be snarky under my *OWN* name (c:

    Yes. Fabulous! Love the orangy-red velvet chairs and sofa. I am SO with you on SR ruining that amazing brass-based desk last night. Super annoying.

    Agree,agree,agree! Thank you for sharing, many of these photos have in my files and on my Pinterest before but I had no idea who the designer was. It is great to be able to look through her portfolio now and see all of her work!

    Pretty – I agree completely with you {Sarah’s decision to replacee the brass with walnut} I thought the desk looked better in the original state.
