Hopefully most of you had a chance to check out the latest Rue this weekend and see my place that I’ve been talking about forever. The apartment is finished (well, as finished as a designer’s space ever is), and I’m so very happy to finally be enjoying it! Yes there will still be plenty of little updates here and there, but for now …. here she is!
Many of you have been asking for resources, and I’m happy to say that all of them are in the magazine – when you click on an item, if there is a source for it it will take you right there! But, to thank the many sponsors and stores that I had in helping to put this house together, I’m listing them all at the bottom of this post!
The little bar in my bookshelves might be one of my favorite details. As much as I love designing, my favorite part of any home is styling it all. It’s my greatest strength and passion. Those bookshelves took hours to put together!
A little DIY – the gold gilding around the door frames for the closets in the hallway. There are literally four doors in this small area – two are closets, one goes to the bedroom one to the bathroom and one is the front door. We painted the closets to help make things a little more intuitional.
And then there’s the bedroom. My beautiful little oasis…
When it’s actually clean, it’s my favorite room in the house. It’s soothing and serene… and my bed is very hard to get out of in the morning!
