We can’t think of anyone better to showcase for the latest Artist Spotlight than the super talented team behind Sweet & Vicious. Written and styled by Libbie Summers with stunning photography by Chia Chong, Sweet & Vicious is all about whipping up wicked-sweet creations in your kitchen that feature daring culinary combinations to delight your taste buds. The hundreds of recipes, elixirs, and extracts throughout the book aren’t even the best part; just try and keep a straight face as Libbie shares the conception of each and every bite along her journey from fierce foodie to culinary producer.
For our Sweet & Vicious interior, we took inspiration from the bright and poppy photo behind Libbie’s Good and Plenty Cupcakes. The playful contrast between the bubblegum pink icing and daring black and white patterned blouse had us envisioning a young but fierce coming-of-age girl who’s not afraid to style her bedroom with a little punch. Following Libbie’s daring attitude, evident throughout the book (think Habanero Carrot Cake and Meatball Muffins), we curated interior elements that aren’t afraid to express a little personality.
1. Wireframe Coat Rack – Land of Nod / 2. Bone and Wood Inlay Frame – Zinc Home / 3. Cinque Brass Pendant – Iacoli & McAllister / 4. Kiara Rug – Anthropologie / 5. Amour Pillows – Anthropologie / 6. Douglas Bed – Noir / 7. Coconut Chine – Walnut Wallpaper

When it came time for the Mercers to finish out their home’s full renovation, Caroline knew she wanted a dedicated space for both her and her youngest daughter Louise to spend time together. The last round of design work gave the oldest daughter, Margaret, a hip bedroom of her own with an adjacent playroom for hanging out after school with friends. As round two came to fruition, it was time for the youngest to have a perfect place for crafts, homework, and an after school escape. The mother and daughter team envisioned a feminine, creative space where they could bond over glitter and popcorn, with the one requirement to infuse the color pink. The result is a Lady Library; a girly yet sophisticated study for both work and play.
Apart from a place to lounge and hang, we designed a streamlined desk surface that seamlessly extends from one of the flanking, open etageres. This allows for a craft-worthy table surface with enough room leftover to house a computer and hidden drawers below for when homework time strikes. Opposite, a fully custom cabinetry system with minimal leather pulls to house bulky storage bins along with narrow pull-out drawers; perfect for large sheets of colored paper.
Check out our creative process below as well as the sources you need to get the look:
1. Nailhead Sofa – Bunny Williams / 2. Varese Fabric – Designers Guild / 3. Chenonceau Wallpaper – Schumacher / 4. Harlow Nesting Tables – Madegoods / 5. Fineas Table Lamp – Robert Abbey / 6. Calvin Chair – Arteriors Homes / 7. Jacques Cocktail Table – Jonathan Adler

Whether you’re looking to renovate or simply give new life to your home, throw pillows are one of the easiest ways to spruce up your space on a budget. To keep your next arrangement of cushions from falling flat, try selecting pillows that have a textural element, such as embroidery. Creating a cluster of pillows with varied applications (seen above) allows for a more layered and sophisticated look, while infusing personality. This week we pulled a handful of our current embroidered favorites for you to explore:
1. Herringbone Diamond Pillow – Coral and Tusk / 2. Labyrinth Persimmon Pillow – Dwell Studio / 3. Feather Trim Long Pillow – Coral and Tusk / 4. Ari Medallion Pillow – Anthropologie / 5. Diamond Echo Pillow – Villa Home
