Hello fab home

When I saw Tommy Smythes (sidekick to Sarah Richardson from HGTV's Sarah's house and Sarah's cottage) apartment on Apartment Therapy I was blown away by his amazing ability to take ordinary objects and vintage finds and display them like art! His home is so masculine chic without being overbearing. I could would definitely be happy in this cozy space. How about you?

How come when I try and do cool arrangements it ends up looking like clutter? I need a class or something!

His levels of detail amaze me. I can't tell you how much this home speaks to me!!!!! Love!

It's so hard to do masculine right so this is really inspiring! As far as clutter, I think natural light and a great photographer make things like that look pretty in a picture you know?

I have an old Canadian House & Home magazine with one of Tommy's old house and it's gorgeous!! Black walls in the dining room, so beautiful! I love Tommy!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I totally wish he was my gay best friend. I would LOVE IT. And seriously, I love all of his work. He is so incredibly talented...why can't I see things the way he does??

I love Sarah's House!

He has a great apartment. I love the black/white living room and the lone red pop of color with the pillow. Perfect!

Oh that is great! I really love the yellow table, although it would clash with everything I own.
I hope you are having a great week!

Amazing apartment...the colors are perfect, the design is perfect, love it all! xoxoxo

I love his style, although different than Sarah's - and I love her style too!

Katie said...

His space is a little cluttered to me. It seems to look lived in rather than livable, if that makes sense. There are some great inspirational ideas here, though!

I love Tommy, he seems like such a fun guy! This apartment is great--chic but inviting and comfortable.

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

Isn't Tommy awesome! I always love the out-takes at the end of Sarah's show. Funny.

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

Totally looks like him! Thanks for sharing!

if you find a class or an article with pointers on displaying things without it looking like clutter, let me know. i have the same issue. i grow up in a house packed full of things and i think i inherited the gene. but i want a nice clean space like these pictures.

Anaiz said...

It looks so clean, I love all the little knick knacks he has everywhere! :D

I LOVE Tommy! Love, love, love him! Wouldn't it be fabulous to go on a shopping spree with him?! Ugh, so jealous of Sarah!

PS: Thanks for sharing :)

Gosh I love that little yellow table in the corner with the plaid stools...

The room looks great. I also find that my attempt to creatively arrange my accessories end up looking like clutter. I think I might need to throw the clutter and go for a more minimalist look.

Nuit said...

This is a new level of awesomeness. He can mix and match different styles masterfully. I cant get over the beautiful chairs, the shelves and the fabulous bar!!!! xoxoox

I saw this too! We must be drawn to the same house tours. That just means we both have good taste in interiors. haha :)
I love this home!
Have a wonderful weekend!
