sneak peek: caryn grossman


today’s first sneak peek is a glamorous departure from the real-world (but beautiful) homes we normally run. designer caryn grossman lives in an elegant, atlanta home that we thought would serve as a wonderful afternoon daydream full of rich fabrics and colored glass. having recently re-watched sofia coppola’s marie antoinette, it reminds me of a modern day twist of something straight out of the film (but instead of a grand chateau, caryn’s place is a 70+ year old former telephone factory). thanks to caryn for sharing her home with us today! you can click here to see more of her interiors work at revolution. -anne

Home is so inspiring, I’ve moved my studio back in, and am enjoying every moment of creativity.

I work, and most definitely play, with design, music, the alternative arts, and the relationships between.

My life seems to be a constant experiment of combinations of each.

I’m incredibly lucky to be surrounded by people with talent and grace, and I’ve been amazed to see my own work, and my world, grow.

I make my living as an interior designer, but I write, design just about anything, and collaborate artistically with anyone who asks.
My home and my studio have always been ever-evolving installations… places where my mind, and my hands, just wander free.



mmmm, swoon for the pink chandalier and the antique dress form with the bustley booty! so pretty!

wow!! this is definitely the best sneek peek yet

i love your space – it’s awesome


wow, what a wonderful space that combines luxury with restraint, and transforms everyday objects…I imagine it must be a really restful home…


Talk about elegant flair! To be honest, the concrete floors are what got me. What a beautiful foundation to work from.


Love it! What a glamorous detour from the typical sneak peeks! I am inspired :-)


I love the flower pillows… does anyone know where I can get them or how I can make them???


Wow I almost feel like the whole place is an art installation. I think I’d feel too intimidated to live there, but it’s very unique and cool.


the photo with the dress forms and the letter block reminds me of an anthropologie display. i love it


Too many amazing pieces and vignettes to name, but I think the overall color palate might be the most remarkable achievement. So lovely.


Sooo beautiful! I love the black table in the first picture? Any idea where it or a similar one can be bought?


such sweetness and light, and texture and surface, and color and space. Thank you so much for sharing this.


Wow! amazing creativity to be able to blend so many disciplines into what is truly the equivalent of a still life painting


i’ve been to her place before, and while it looks amazing, it is not live-able. its all for the photo shoots.


I’ve been there often, and its as beautiful as it looks. Sure things are spiffed up for shows and events, but that space changes every day and its always inviting. guess live-ability depends on what we each prefer in our space.


The painting in the bedroom, who is it by?

I love that bedroom, it’s like the vision for my bedroom was made to reality!

The flower pillows, I must know where to get them!


The romance in this space! Curled edges, faded shades, open spaces, and cluttered coziness. What a place to live. (Even if, like Erika says, it is created solely for the photos…that in itself is an art that I am appreciating.)

Thank you for posting this, I am redoing my bedroom and am looking for bedding. I absolutely LOVE that bedding. I would love to know where I can find it!
