Congratulations to friend and colleague, Karl Kipfmueller, on the feature of his beautiful home in the July/August 2014 issue of Elle Decor.

In addition to the incredible photos of Kipfmueller’s home, I highly recommend reading the accompanying article which captures Kipfmueller’s wit, historic references and details his highly personal solutions to his home decor. For example, I learned (but was actually not surprised) that the rich tones on his living room walls were achieved with several coats of tinted butchers wax!
