Totally Inspiring Rooms

The entry to Royce Pinkwater’s living room in New York. From House Beautiful September 2011 Splendid Sass.

The latest issue of House Beautiful had the most gorgeous apartment I’ve ever seen. I, quite literally, could see myself moving in and not changing one single thing in the place. From the moody entry to the airy minimalist bath, every room is perfect.

The living room. Lavender and feminine, yet unfussy details rule.

The view through the to the eat in kitchen.

The eat in kitchen’s dining area with mid century chairs and amazing herringbone floors.

The thing that strikes me most about the apartment, which is owned by Sotheby’s Royce Pinkwater, is how utterly liveable it all looks. Nothing is too precious or overdone, everywhere you look there is an inviting place to sit or look. I absolutely love it! This is definitely going into my idea file for use on my own digs!

You can see more of this gorgeous NYC apartment on Splendid Sass (HB doesn’t have it up yet).

On a personal note: the change in season has my allergies doing the tango on my sinuses but I’m doing better than yesterday. I’m getting back in the saddle and riding forward! Have a great Tuesday everyone. 🙂

Totally Inspiring Room

Whew! It is sweltering this Tuesday in the CLT. It feels like it’s in the 90’s… at least. Here’s a fresh, cool breeze of inspiration for you:

This beautiful room is from the latest issue of Lonny Magazine. As soon as I saw it I fell in love with the handpainted chinoiserie wallpaper by Gracie that fills the back wall of the room. Other swank elements include: a leather covered card table scored from auction house Christie’s, bamboo style chairs, tan on white zebra striped fabric, and a pretty pale blue ceramic candlestick lamp on a leggy console. I could SO live here!

Hope you’re having a great ( and significantly cooler) Tuesday. 🙂
