Marjorie Skouras Design




Much of my summer jewelry is heavy on the coral and turquoise beads- it's a great way to add some color to your wardrobe. And perhaps the same could be said for your lighting too. What about some turquoise and coral on your chandeliers and sconces? I think that the designs below by Los Angeles interior designer Marjorie Skouras are so striking, especially the turquoise bead chandelier. While Skouras' lighting line would be perfect for beach homes, I can actually see them working quite well in interiors in colder climates too. In addition to lighting, Skouras also designs accessories such as tiebacks, hardware, and candlesticks, not to mention furniture too. I've included a few of her pieces here as well as some photos from her design portfolio. Enjoy!

  8. That is really stunning. I could see the turquoise chandelier in an infants room with white/cream bedding. The shades of blue in the beads are really soft and beautiful.

  20. Anon- I think you have to contact her via her website. I know you can buy some of her accessories on the Vivre site, but I don't think the tiebacks are on there. Hope this helps!
