Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a top from Carven, skirt from Kenzo and shoes from sandals from J. Crew.
Happy Thursday!! The last day of May 2018– oh my goodness this year is flying by! We had what I would consider a cold winter and spring— seems like I wore a coat more than usual. We had some really chilly mornings in April. And BOOM— here comes the heat. This will be the first summer that Lacie Rue has come to work with me. Poor baby has a permanent fur coat— think I will have to roll the windows down and turn on the air before I put her in the car to take her home. She waits patiently outside my bedroom door every morning.... just waiting for the magic words “Want to go to the workplace??”
You would think I told her she won the lottery— she gets SO excited! I adore going to my studio every day and it is a real treat to be able to bring my dog. She has her own bed with a blanket made from a Coraggio mohair that matches the antique sofa in my window. After all— she is the 4 legged daughter of a designer — so no Costco dog bed for this girl!!!
The article I am covering today was a small article in Architectural Digest’s May issue. The article was small but we found more images on line. British fashion designer Mishaps Nonoo wanted a fresh start in her Greenwich Village apartment after her divorce. With the help of designers Andre Mellone and Axel Vervoordt she turned the space into her own. Enjoy this fresh and beautiful apartment and have a wonderful day. The first weekend in June is around the corner!!!!!
Beautiful antique marble mantel with a collection of interesting vases and candlesticks. While the mantle is so classic.. the accessories are very modern.
This very conservative and majestic oil reins over the curvaceous stairwell.
A ground level view of the staircase. This almost looks like something from Greece to me. I LOVE the herringbone wood floors.
Such sassy 1950s Italian armchairs upholstered in a mohair. The mirrored artwork over the mantel is by Oscar Tuazon.
Nonoo was not afraid to have a white rug and sofa in her living room. She just keeps the carpet cleaning service on speed dial.
The former dining room was turned into a library. The Andy Warhol portrait of Queen Elizabeth is her nod to her English roots. I love how they mirrored the wall behind the marble mantel in between the bookcases. Note the brass lights above each section of the bookcases— I am sure this is delightful at night.
This bay window at the end of the living room was turned into a intimate dining moment. The 1970s Belgian travertine table is paired beautifully with a 1920s Arno Zoetmulder sassy side chair.
The dining room was relocated closer to the kitchen Nonoo loves to host dinner parties and cocktail parties..... a perfect room for it. The cool light fixture is by Molo . A pair of Gio Ponti-style mirrors flank the fireplace. Above the fireplace is a portrait of Bridgette Bardot.
A sleek desk that looks to be from the 1930s or 1940s in the bedroom.
What sold Nonoo on the apartment to begin with was the HUGE closet in the master. Something not often seen in New York. The apartment was formerly designed by Nate Berkus.... who I am sure took in a bedroom to create this closet. I don’t even have a closet like this in Fort Worth. I am having closet envy.........
For dinner last night we had fried chicken from Roy Pope's Grocery and steamed zuchinni.
I love this song!!
