A designer portfolio: Rafael de Cardenas

While preparing a random post about Greece I cam across Rafael de Cardenas name and I got curious. Then I came across this gorgeous home he created for model Jessica Stam, you might have seen it as it was in Elle Decor some years back (the first version before the renovation she did recently. 




Some of his recent projects include de Cynthia Rowley store in Chicago and some bold and bright interiors. My favorite though remains the gorgeous bold apartment above.

  9. I am in love with the first room shown. Purple is my favorite color and this room is a perfect balance of the different shade of purple with some lighter accents thrown in.
