When I posted this kitchen by Sarah Vaile Design on Instagram over the weekend, I instantly fell in love with her work and found myself falling down a rabbit hole delving into her portfolio. It’s no wonder, since the Chicago based designer attended Parsons School of Design and studied under prestigious Celerie Kemble Interiors before opening her own firm in NYC, which is now headquartered in Chicago. Vaile’s work is eclectic, fresh and bright, never shying away from bright colors and the layering of bold patterns. She creates beautiful unexpected pairings from high gloss walls and Chinese chippendale furniture to mixing modern art with antiques.

Today I wanted to share two of my favorite projects of hers with you: Lakewood Townhouse and Indian Hill Road. I would have shared her entire portfolio if I could, because all of her work is just that fabulous. Treat yourself and explore more of her portfolio on her website. Happy Wednesday!

The entrance to the Lakewood Townhouse residence is absolutely swoon-worthy. The Sandberg wallpaper with those floors is gorgeous!

I love how this living room is chic but also vibrant and inviting. The woven blinds and modern art above the mantle along with the block print curtains and acrylic coffee table add a fresh twist and accentuate the traditional architecture in this living room.

The blue animal print on this chair is just fantastic with the antique writing desk in the background.
By now you know I love anything that combines antiques, a zebra rug and chinoiserie.

This mirror is fantastic and the small burst of color from the orchids make the brass accents pop.

An ultimate blue and white master retreat.

Another favorite project of mine in her portfolio is the Indian Hill Road project.

Those sconces above the fireplace are darling and I love how the subtle animal print elements and greek key detailing on the sofa keep the eye moving around the room.

More fun furniture feet! I will take a claw-and-ball foot table or chair any day of the week.

When a client trusts the designer, it gives them the ability to make bold, beautiful choices and the result is beautiful moments like the one above.

This is the kitchen I posted on Instagram over the weekend. I love the clean lines and how peaceful it is.

This Miles Redd wallpaper is one of my favorites.

How fabulous are the feet on these buffet lamps?

The grasscloth and modern art above the custom built in cabinets are delightful and unexpected.

A colorful, family friendly living room

Wallpapered powder rooms always make me stop and stare and this Lee Jofa wallpaper has been a longtime favorite of mine.
