Luxe interior designers are in a unique position to create the perfect blend of modern style and classic design for every home, but for those who want a more classic look, the best way to get the job done is with a collection of furnishings and accessories, says James Buehl, an interior design consultant and owner of the luxury home design company BueHLOVE.
BueLOVE has created a series of home accessories that offer a modern, elegant twist on traditional decor, from the fireplace mantel to the glass-and-wood cabinets.
From the fireplace to the wood cabinets, the accessories include a wine cabinet, an electric fireplace, and a fireplace mantle.
And they’re available in three different styles, a formal, casual, and chic.
BuesLOVE will also offer a collection called “The New Luxe,” featuring furniture and accessories that are meant to reflect the modern lifestyle.
“The new luxe is a mix of classic and contemporary designs,” says Buellos owner, James Bues, who designed the collection.
“Everything has to have a little bit of a modern touch.”
A modern modern style, and it’s going to have to be something that is practical.
The more practical, the better, he says.
And that’s the point of the collection, Bues says.
You have to find something that will look nice with your current furniture and that you can still wear it.
BUELLOVE accessories are available online and in-store at BueLLOve.com.
(The new Luxe includes a wine case, but the wine mantel is sold separately.)
The accessories are all available online at BuesLove.com, where they are also available in a selection of luxury accessories, including an espresso mug, an espresso-making station, and an electric stove.
“There’s no question that a lot of people have an idea of what a classic, classic look looks like, but if you’re not into classic design, you’re going to be disappointed,” says Robert Harker, an author of the “Design for Dummies” book.
Harkers own home design and decor business, which has clients such as the Kardashians and Kate Moss.
He says there’s something special about making something that’s contemporary, but still timeless, and vintage.
“It’s a really nice challenge to be able to be in the modern world and make something that looks like the era and is just like what the people of the 1920s and ’30s and 1940s did,” he says, referring to the 1950s and 1960s.
“I think that’s really important, because I think we all love that look.”
