Without further ado, here is this weeks Best of American Design update.

Casa El Dorado by Denton House Design Studio

Casa El Dorado is located on a premier beach front in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The generous villa was designed to entertain large groups of guests at a time. The lively interior design, which mixes Mexican inspired colours and patterns with a mix of contemporary and traditional furniture, creates a vibrant space that is well suited for entertaining and kicking back.



Denton House Design Studio have been shortlisted for Residential £20 Million Plus (Property by Value) Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.

DESIGNER IN PROFILE: Michael Abrams, President of Michael Abrams Interiors

Where does your design inspiration come from?

Inspiration is generated first by the architecture and then by the clients themselves. Getting to know them personally is important as you are creating their living environment.

How would describe your personal design style?

I aim to create spaces that are streamlined, tailored and masculine. I consider my style to be classic and timeless and like to incorporate iconic pieces of furniture when I can. My interiors tend to be calming and simple so that the people and the art work take center stage.
