Artist (and Designer) Crush: William McLure

There are some people who are just SO talented you can’t believe one individual can house so much good taste and skill. William McLure is one of those people. I just cannot get enough not only of his incredible abstract paintings but also his interiors! Especially his own apartments. And he appears to be very young (with a little bit of a Zac Efron thing going on to boot…) so I can’t wait to see what else he does in his career.  And I’m absolutely looking to use his work in some of my projects- it’s fantastic.

This was his last place and it is INCREDIBLE- the layering, the mix of simplicity and detail and layering is really masterful

The painted floors, the blue and white mixed with graphic abstract art…

That sofa cushion in Lee Jofa’s (a fabric I LOVE to use) is brilliant!

Love this peek into the bedroom flanked by the blue built in.

LOVE the draped bed paired with his painting and the antique dresser.

This space is a fantastic example of using one material throughout- the bed drapes and window drapes- and adding texture through layered woven shades.

If you check out his Instagram you’ll see he’s moved into an INSANELY cool industrial loft.

I also loved seeing his sofa used in yet another space from years ago with red walls! Shows how you can change up the color of a room and keep your furniture the same with BIG impact.

This was a showhouse space he designed (featuring his artwork too, of course)
