It’s no secret that I love Joss & Main. If I’m not antiquing or thrifting, I’m shopping Joss & Main for home decor from rugs and decor accents to furniture… but mostly small accent ottomans, because it’s clear by how many I have in my house THAT I’M OBSESSED WITH OTTOMANS.
Joss & Main has a nice variety of high-end and low pieces and makes it easy to mix decor elements from almost any aesthetic and for any budget, which is why I love it so much. I’ve even curated a few sales events with/for them over the years.
They have this newish feature on their site though called Behind the Design, where they feature interior designers and/or experts in the field along with photos from their portfolios and curated collections to match. I love it for discovering new talent and gaining inspiration from their work.
While I’m pretty excited to see most of the featured designers, sometimes the photos just jump out at me. And since I’m on Joss & Main nearly every day if even just to window shop, today I noticed Michael Herold of Michael Herold Design‘s work and had to share a few of my favorite rooms from his portfolio.
With a bold and modern focus, Michael Herold of Michael Herold Design is no stranger to crafting intriguing spaces with dramatic flair. Here, the designer takes us behind the scenes of his projects—each one a medley of pattern and statement pieces. Take a tour, then shop finds inspired by his style.
“My goal when designing this small, windowless former laundry room was to create an oasis filled with intrigue, life, and modern glamour. The space plays with large scale patterns and dark tones, which adds great depth to the room, and makes it feel more expansive.”
“Mixing patterns instantly adds interest to a space. A good rule of thumb is to select various scaled patterns with similar tones. And don’t be afraid to mix styles. A modern abstract pattern, combined with a classic motif, keeps it fresh.”
“The inspiration for this foyer I designed in the Hamptons was to create a galley-like backdrop to showcase the collection of sculptural art pieces and furnishings. One of the simplest ways to update a space is with objects and accessories. They instantly add life to a room!”
