Happy weekend you guys! It’s raining here and despite that I’m filled with energy and optimism. I have a bunch of things on the go and I guess I’m rather excited about it all. I also am so glad I took some time to be outside on Monday when it was still sunny out because it looks like that’s not happening again for a while. There’s a seize the moment lesson in there right? Anyways, whatever you have planned, I hope it’s great and hopefully rain free! xx
Carmen Busquet’s Parisian apartment was recently featured in Harper’s Bazaar and I have to say it’s pretty freaking amazing. I mean, what’s not to love about glossy black floors, architectural details and tons of amazing artwork? It’s a hard formula to mess up! The whole thing is perfectly befitting for fashion industry pioneer. The styling of this shoot is also killer. I love how the fashion relates to the art. I mean, that’s a ridiculous concept for real life but for a fashion/design spread it’s perfect. I only wish there were more photos to share – especially of that techno kitchen!
Some things are hard to mess up. Case in point: gorgeous NYC townhouses with incredibly architectural details and a storied past. In fact, this is where the Rolling Stones recorded “Sympathy For the Devil” and “Paint It Black”. So this is already way ahead of the pack. But owner Alexis Gomez was not one to leave the rest up to chance. Casey Debois from Homepolish was hired to fully transform the space into the present.
The furniture is a wonderful mix of classic and mid-century with some lovely graphic artwork to liven it all up. It’s cool and relaxed yet still quite feminine. Though there’s lots of inspiration here but the artwork has me wondering how I can create something similar on my own. I also love the sofa although I’m not sure it belongs in my world. Perhaps I will get a tufted sofa next – if only I can cure my cats of the dreaded scratching habit first (ie. not likely).
