Decor Inspiration: Casual and Quirky Global Style

November 16, 2009

Have you seen this house tour on re-nest? It's the home of fashion designer, Erica Tanov and I'm loving her quirky-casual take on vintage, second-hand and global-inspired pieces. Everything in her place tells a story and I very much want to go there.

This pink bedroom is for her daughter....but I'd be quite happy to have a lazy Sunday morning in this bed.

A bookcase filled with little treasures.

Vintage-modern leather chair with Indian-esque pillow. Oh, and don't you just want to poke around in that trunk?

Makes me want to plant climbing roses on my fire escape just so I can copy this vignette.

Even the peeling part tells a story.

Moroccan tea party. Lovely.

Spanish monastery stair case. Yes, please.

Chinoiserie luminescent paper. Typically quite formal...but paired with the casual bed and vintage keepsakes, feels very casual.

See more of the tour at re-nest.


  1. Do you know anything about finding affordable stuff in Manhattan? I always want to decorate more, but the price is so prohibitive.

  2. I'm glad someone else loved that house tour. I think it was one of the best I've seen in awhile.

  3. Wow, what a wonderful design...

    I'm looking forward to you including pics of your house in your posts

    It will be interesting... :)

    Btw would you be so kind to exchange link with me ?

    Message me on 1 of my blogs or BlogCatalog as I found your lovely blog from there... :)

    Best regards,
