It is not always that we can experience the best things in life much more when everything is in reach during the holiday season.

Located in the heart of Kiev, this modern apartment by YØ DEZEEN uses a strong contemporary interior design theme accented with classical ornamentation. This sense of contrast heightens the effect of both influences and helps to underscore the attractive greyscale contrast used throughout. Artwork, vivid accent colors, and intricate details bring this otherwise streamlined interior to life. It's a luxurious home designed with a young family in mind, easy to adapt to changing tastes and space requirements – the designers knew more than just what it needed, but also considered what it may need to become.

Our home environments are the only places of reprieve from the chaotic outer world, and I believe they should be treated accordingly when it comes to design.” – Kirstin S. Havnaer, Founder, Hearthstone Interior Design LLC
Kirstin Havnaer, a Pacific Northwest native who was raised in a family of homebuilders, architects, and artists, founded Hearthstone Interior Design LLC in 2002. Kirstin’s upbringing naturally engrained in her an undeniable sense of the power of aesthetics and functionality in the home. Despite this intrinsic understanding, Kirstin took what some may call an untraditional path to becoming an interior designer. As fate would have it, this path has led Kirstin, and Hearthstone Interior Design LLC, to become an even more exceptional and unique company.
Perpetually curious about human nature, Kirstin pursued an undergraduate degree in Psychology, and then worked her way through a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. After working in the corporate world (without much creative inspiration), Kirstin decided to get back to her roots and delve more into her artistic side. She once again immersed herself in education, by earning her AKBD certification (Associate Kitchen & Bath Designer) through the National Kitchen & Bath Association – the country’s lead organization in kitchen and bath design and design education. She also graduated from the Western School of Feng Shui, Heritage School of Interior Design, and completed studies with the IACC (International Association of Color Consulting) – who are the worlds’ expert organization on how color, neuropsychology, and physiology collectively affect human behavior. By then, the embers of a new vocation had been stoked, and Kirstin found her true calling...

DANBURY, Conn. - For the 10th consecutive year, Ethan Allen will serve as the primary source of furniture and décor for the HGTV Dream Home, set to be revealed on a network special on New Year’s Day.
The 20th annual HGTV Dream Home, a 3,100-square-foot Caribbean-inspired getaway with spectacular water views, is located in Merritt Island, Fla. This is the first time that HGTV has opted to remodel an existing home, instead of building a new one. The home will be awarded to the winner of the HGTV Dream Home 2016 Giveaway.
The remodeling transformation was the creative work of HGTV Dream Home designer Brian Patrick Flynn, who shopped the Ethan Allen Design Center in Manhattan to select the furniture, upholstery, window treatments, and accessories that would make his vision for a sophisticated Floridian escape a reality.
Flynn chose a cool palette of blue-grays and ivory with some punches of terracotta. He filled the breezy home with an array of Ethan Allen styles, all suitable for its coastal chic vibe.
“The most enjoyable thing for me was having the ability to shop at one place to furnish the entire home,” said Flynn. “With Ethan Allen, it was all done in New York City over just two days. That really made the entire process enjoyable and easy.”
“We’re honored to be furnishing the HGTV Dream Home for the 10th year in a row,” said Ethan Allen chairman, president and CEO Farooq Kathwari. “This is a wonderful partnership for us, and the home is a beautifully designed showcase for our furniture, accessories and art.”

The sun shines through barely-there wire furnishings—and that's the beauty of this simple form. Embracing without obscuring, minimalistic yet incredibly strong and durable, wire is a designer's dream. So why not push the boundaries?
The designers of the six innovative wire form furnishings here have done just that, with show-stopping products including a lighting family customizable to be both two- and three-dimensional, a chair with a throne-like base, a room divider based on the idea of a soothing forest refuge, a pendant recalling a suspended butterfly chrysalis, and more.
1. Wireflow pendant light by Vibia
Black-lacquered electrical wire forms the floating abstract geometry of the Wireflow family by Arik Levy. Customizable in both size and shape, the pendant light can be both a two- and a three-dimensional chandelier, illuminating from pressed glass LED terminals.
2. Tonella chair by Sancal
Hailed as a mini-armchair, Tonella by Note Design Studio is just 24 inches wide and 28 inches tall. Gilded pillars of bronze- or pearlized white-lacquered steel tubing—a nod to wine barrels common in southern Spain—sweep down to form the chair's thronelike base, while the back and arms of the Marie Antoinette-style seat are flexible molded polyurethane foam.
3. Woodland room divider by Seletti
Exploring the concept of a forest as a refuge, metal screen Woodland by Alessandra Baldereschi creates a private alcove. Recalling trees, the 100-inch-high by 70-inch-wide panels can be positioned to overlap, in various colors.
4. Tull lamp by Incipitlab
A striking birdcagelike form defines Tommaso Caldera's Tull lamp, launched in 2014 with cheery bold color options of its steel frame including orange/beige, turquoise/orange, anthracite/turquoise. This year, Tull grows up, with two more subdued metal finishes—copper/white and nickel/black. It's offered in pendant and floor/table versions.
5. Spokes by Foscarini
Ancient oriental lanterns, the spokes of a bicycle wheel, and the rays of the sun influenced the form of the Spokes pendant lamp by Garcia Cumini. The steel and aluminum frame comes in two sizes, in white or yellow varnish. A tiny recess conceals the LED bulb.
6. Suspension Papillon by Forestier
Three tiers of lacquered steel mesh drop down to weld the Suspension Papillon pendant light by Elise Fouin. Recalling a suspended butterfly chrysalis in the act of unfolding, it's available in black, blue-grey, white, and lime green/blue-grey/white.
