Trendsetting duo, Christine Ralphs and Michelle Lloyd Bermann, combined their expertise to create the design consultancy, Lloyd Ralphs Design. Both former Club Monaco design executives, these women are renowned for classic style and impeccable detail. Their signature high-contrast spaces are sleek and glamorous, and often punctuated with bold zebra-print.
Here’s how these two fashionable designers create timeless spaces.
Mixing a vintage metal sculpture with photographs brings architectural interest to a striking black and white art wall.
Positioning the white cabinets lower makes room for creative display on top.
Trendy Gold Accents adds warmth and sparkle in the kitchen.
Symmetry is key in the layout of this dining area. A pair of floor lamps sit on either side of a black and white photography display. Two white bird sculptures are perched atop the table, which is surrounded by casual, Eames style chairs. The delicate lines of the glass dining table make the room look even more spacious.
In a Petite Powder Room a side-mounted faucet makes the most of an oblong sink, and even offers storage underneath.
In a Sparkling White Bathroom drawers of many shapes and sizes accommodate storage needs. Mirrored walls and glass panels play with one’s perception of space. An overall white palette keeps the look immaculate.
In this White-on-White office, simple storage boxes maintain a sense of order and create a beautiful display. Open shelving looks calm, not chaotic, thanks to the all-white scheme and closed containers.
In this master suite, a soft taupe feature wall balances quietly luxurious elements like the sleek white upholstered headboard, mirrored side tables and lamps. Black and white bedding is mixed with zebra-print sheets for added graphic appeal.
A teenage girl gets the star treatment in this sophisticated space - the epitome of the graphic-meets-glamorous look: a room inspired by a print of Marilyn Monroe. The gold-toned bed is a warm contrast to the black and white furniture and linens. Retro-style lamps, on low side tables, suit the minimalist design.
Wicker, raffia and rattan accents offer texture and a casual, beachy note. Mixing playful, rough and unexpected objects with a sleek daybed and Saarinen-style table keeps the cottage from looking too precious. White paint, fabrics and Moroccan-style lanterns and cabinet lattice-work create an exotic feel.
