Designer: Jordan Carlyle

Hello Monday morning! I happen to adore Interior Design. Even though I'm no designer, I think I can hold my own. If money math weren't a requirement, I probably would've become an Interior designer. It's true, I suck at Math. These days, I'd rather just look at Interior Design online & in mags.

In fact, that's how I learned all about Jordan Carlyle's work for the first time. He emailed me introducing himself. Where had I been that I hadn't seen this amazing designer??  + he's handsome!

Enough about his looks, we know he doesn't really need them because his work speaks for itself. Ok, maybe looks help a bit, but just look at the pictures below. The first few photos are of his pad in NYC - from his choice of art, to the black bookshelf to that black & white sofa (which is part of his furniture collection fyi) - I love it all!

I'm not sure how much the sofa is his collection goes for, but if one day I'm able to splurge - something similar is what I'd want for my next sofa. Amazing.


I wonder if that's the Jonathan Adler wallpaper in his office below??





Jordan's Interior work can be seen in all the photos below - every space seems to be carefully crafted and though out. He's definitely a designer to watch out for - if you haven't heard of him yet. 










Jordan also has a collection of Fine Art, of which these two are some of my favorites!You may recognize the George Washington one if you've shopped at CB2.

Love this! I've also never heard of Jordan - but he's obviously a big fan of Thibaut! That Gold damask is Curtis Damask on Cork wallcovering. So hot!

And I'm pretty sure he used Como Silk in Silver, the textured vinyl one.

Megan {Honey We're Home} said...

I die! Could pin every image! And he looks a little like Adam Levine, no? :)

morninglola said...

I absolutely love every single one of these rooms! They all have something completely unexpected.

Thanks Jen.

Jessica, or Jet, whatever you prefer said...

Love his art. Good find!

Jen of MadeByGirl said...

MEGAN: Yup, he does look a little like him! :)

cinzee said...

Wow, another great interior designer alert and I totally agree he looks hot, and yes, looks wouldn’t harm a bit as part of the whole branding right?hehe

I really like the way his place looks, never knew black could look this stylish! Love the black sofa and shelves. He really does have an eye for design I gotta say, and it’s like each and every little thing has been thought through like you said.

Those turquoise colored pillows look lovely against the zig zag printed and white pillows in the room and I want that round mirror. I also like what he did with those photo frames, its amazing how a small thing like a photo frame can transform a room eh? And how I wish I had that patio/balcony!!! The black table and vase along with the cushioned chairs make it look really cosy and inviting. Definitely will be looking up Jordan’s stuff.

Now if only I had a place to call my home and the money, I prob go crazy on buy all these stuff too, haha

Great post Jen!!!

So heavenly divine! I love every single room and yes, if I had to redo my entire house again...this is the color scheme that I would choose! I love the sofa too on the living room.
