Inspiring Interiors: Thom Filicia Style

I haven't been able to get my hands on a copy of Thom Filicia's book, Thom Filicia Style:Inspired Ideas for Creating Rooms You'll Love, yet but I have seen his work in pictures on the internet and I really like what I see. 

I love his style, the layers of interest he creates in his rooms and the masculine touch to the decor.

  Here is a peek into his Designer Visions Showhouse that was featured in the November issue of House Beautiful.

When I first saw this room, I fell in love with the large horses on the wall.  I'm not sure what it is about them because I don't particularly like horses, but the sheer size of them is striking and beautiful.  Definitely a focal point worthy of your attention.  The unexpected pops of yellow on the chairs is fun and make the traditional klismos chairs feel modern.  I love the round rug with the round table, the pattern on the drapes, the lantern style light fixture above the table and the reiteration of the round shapes in the room with the sculpture in front of the window.


Bright and colorful place settings are simple, yet glamorous.  I don't think you'll be bored at a dinner party in this dining roon.


Grass cloth wall coverings, 2 fabrics on the sofas, the movement of the rug, the light fixture over the seating area and the two leather wing back chairs add so much interest to the living room.  I can't decide what I like the most.



How great is the rope railing along this staircase?  I love how unique this is.  The one stripe leads you up the stairs in a clean and simple way with lots of impact.


This landing at the top of the stairs is so warm with the grass cloth wall covering, large, eclectic art in similar gold frames and wall sconces.


I'm not really a fan of this bathroom.  It would be fine on it's own I suppose, but to me, it looks out of place with the rest of the home.  Too cold and modern for this home.


This console table is amazing!  Obviously that fact that it is white helps to keep it from looking gaudy-instead it looks clean and sculptural.  The basket and grass cloth walls add texture and the simple lamps and mirror add symmetry that is pleasing to the eye.


A shot opposite the bed in the bedroom.  The floor lamps are beautiful and create a nice symmetry around the dresser.  The pop of color is so nice in the dresser and striped ottoman.

This bedroom shot is my favorite.  I love the moody, dark gray walls broken up by thin white stripes, the copper starburst mirror, and the quatrefoil 4 poster bed.  Notice how your eyes follow the lines on the walls and on the bed.  Perfection.

  1. I love that horse print. It's amazing!!!! There is a restaurant a couple of towns away that is filled with those prints. The artist is the restaurant owners brother. I nearly died when I stepped in to the place.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line!
