James Michael Howard - Interiors

I recently stumbled across the work of this talented and versatile designer. His designs cover a wide variety of styles from traditional to contemporary. Today, I have chosen to show you my favourites which are the interiors with French, Belgian and Swedish influences. Enjoy!

I love the beamed ceiling and blue and cream colour scheme. 

That fireplace!

He often includes beautiful antiques into his designs.

Blue is a recurring colour in a number of his interiors.

What a stunning ceiling and chandelier.

I love the slipcover on the ottoman. 

 I love the scale of this room.

Beautiful cupboard, Swedish, I think, and that slipcovered ottoman design again.

An inviting corner of a bedroom. Such a pretty green on the chair.

Wishing you fabulous Friday!

Till next time

    All best,

  3. Sharon,
    What beautifully designed rooms. I like the soft palate and understated furnishings. Nothing too formal, just the right comfort level and style.

  4. Hi Sharon! Love his work. I feel silly because I didn't realize that Jim and James Michael were the same Howard;)! You can't go wrong with either of the Howards. I love the colour palate and the timelessness of the design.

  5. Hi Sharon,
    I love all of the room. They are so soft and comforting, my favorite colour palates.

  6. I just love his work and think he can do no wrong!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. He is one of my favorite designers. Every single one of these designs are beautiful.

  8. Great post and I love the sink in the last photo.
