Beautifully arranged bookshelves where every book and item has its place.
Sikes and Griffin have created a stylish, elegant and balanced home with attention to details. Everywhere you look there are beautifully decorated shelves, tables and trays - so many wonderful details to take in. It is exactly details like these that help turning a house into a home. They make your home more personal. Note also the chinoiserie items throughout and the striped rugs.
As I'm using images from two different sources, Lonny and House Beautiful, I couldn't include all of them and rather chose to leave some rooms out. Simply follow the links at the bottom to view more.

Two of Sikes's interior style influences were the homes of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta and designer Bunny Williams in the Dominican Republic. You only have to look at this space in Oscar de la Renta's home to see the influences clearly.
