Spooky


It's not the eclectic artwork in this Manhattan apartment, that has me so scared.


It's just this weird feeling I get every time I look at these photos..which is quite often.


It seems that Lauren Stern, designer of this fabulous apartment, must have super natural clairvoyant powers!


It's as if she can read my mind.  And, she knows exactly what my dream pied-a-tier would look like.


From the white kitchen and bath with gorgeous tiles and cool brass hardware to the amazing retro light fixtures.  It's all a perfect mix of traditional, vintage, modern and classic.


And then, she tops it all off with this fabulous purple bedroom! 
The little hairs on the back of my neck just stood straight up! Scary.

  10. That bathroom is a classic. Looks like it stepped out of the twenties or something fabulous like that. I believe the people that have true design skills do work like this. Place just a few simple pieces in a space that really makes the shine.

  16. Who cares if the artwork is scary, a fair trade off for the hallway wallpaper and brass vintage bath fixtures!
