Style Find: Tone on Tone

I will have to hold myself back from “talking” too much in this post because I want you to have a chance to let the amazingly calm and assured style of Loi Thai & his shop Tone on Tone (Bethesda MD) just wash over you as it did for me upon a recent visit…

Loi & his partner Thomas Troeschel are the real deal when it comes to stylish living, as they renovate their own houses (in Maine and Washington DC), entertain friends & family & dogs beautifully, run an exquisite shop with an international network of clients, a massively popular blog & Instagram feed…and yet seem to truly take their time to appreciate nature, history, art & good design. To me, this is the recipe for a life well lived!!

I loved talking to Loi in his store as he’s so curious about everything, a great conversationalist & clearly a master at his craft. Here are a few of my favorites from his current inventory:

Loi is not only an expert at stocking truly perfect Gustavian antiques but also has an amazing eye for arrangement. Here are a few images of his own (former) house – I gather they just moved & are onto a new project! – as well as some shots of work he has done in clients’ houses…

Last but definitely not least are a couple images of his beloved myrtle topiaries which are EVERYWHERE in his shop and his houses, and a lovely still life of some seed pods – it IS a photo I took, but doesn’t it look just like a painting??  In Loi Thai’s world it seems life really does imitate art.
