Designer Spotlight: Molly Luetkemeyer

I've been getting some huge laughs this season from ABC's break-out comedy Modern Family.  Like laugh out loud so my husband comes to check on me from another room laughs.  Julie Bowen's character Claire Dunphy serves as the voice of a reason amid some seriously random/dysfunctional/absurd/ hilarious family members and scenarios.  I love her on the show, but I really love her Studio City home, designed by her wildly talented sister Molly Luetkemeyer.

Bowen's home was featured in last month's InStyle Magazine

These bookshelves are perfection.  I love the color she painted the back, and the grouping of the books paired with interesting art and those sweet turquoise foo dogs.

Bowen has baby twins at home.  As a mother of 5 year old twins, I'd like to respectfully suggest she stocks up on some of this to protect that incredible display:

I adore the mirrors Luetkemeyer used in her sister's dining room (though the chair fabric is a little too abstract for me), and in another commercial project below.  If anyone knows where to get mirrors like this, you are compelled to leave a comment with details!

Check out how Luetkemeyer incorporates lucite coffee and console tables in the portfolio images below. 

I have this same zebra rug in my sitting room.  This image is seriously making me consider lucite instead of the leather tables I have there now.  Pros:  you can see even more of the zebra rug.  Cons:  you can see even more of the zebra rug, so my husband would likely file papers.

And further examples of Luetemeyer's penchant for styling incredible bookshelves:
