I love the word “irreverence”, and all that it implies. But the term IRREVERENT is especially good in the context of design and interiors.
I see this so often…people showing too much restraint and playing it safe with their interiors. Boooor-innnggg. Unexpected elements and “daring to go there” is so much more interesting.
This is the “m.o.” of amazing designers, Bob & Cortney Novogratz and it works so well. Their new site, The Novogratz is under construction, hurry up guys! Otherwise it would FOR SURE be a part of my Blog Love/Roll (did you notice a new lil. addition in the right sidebar? This is only a mere start of blogs I love. Send a comment if you’re privy to a blog that may cover similar material)

Talk about having some cajones while designing a baby’s nursery. I suppose they have learned a thing or two since this is now their 7th, that’s right, 7th bambino. I also hear that their NEW show is coming to HGTV soon, I can’t wait!!
Ann Carrington’s flag, LOVE. Cow Hide rug, LOVE. Rod iron day bed, LOVE. So not Pooh Bear, LOVE. Screw the glider, they are ugly anyways.
And now take a little meander over to this gorgeous room from the Greystone Estate.

Irreverant? A little bit, you know classic wood paneling, and pink zebra throw? Enormous over sized wall covering–couldn’t love anymore. Bravo.
Don’t keep so calm, but still carry on.
