"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Tommy Smythe

Tommy Smythe was featured in Style at Home this month and I wanted to share a few pictures of his space.  My favourite room has got to be the closet!  The closet is off the rack from Ikea and he customized it by adding trim detail, paint and beautiful door knobs.  Doesn't it look beautiful?


  1. LOVED his space and DIED over the pax wardrobes, I have wanted these for a while now :) And did you hear that Tommy will be writing a regular column for Style at Home now?? I'm excited to see what he will cover :)
