Yes, I know.
Nothing for a while then like buses two come at once.
But I didn't want the May issue go to waste so it's there
if you feel like it.
Those of you who are on Pinterest know that I love leopard.
But I don't know if I love it enough to spend $902,000 on this chair.
I reckon I could buy a patch of land and raise a couple of
live leopards for that amount.
Hasn't Art Deco and mid century furniture just shot up in value more than the homes it furnishes?
Another case in point is below.
Mind you with names like Gio Ponti and Fornasetti this dining suite was bound to go for more than estimate.
I do wonder how much more it would have gone for it the color was more neutral.
I only added some tips about outdoor living for those of you who are lucky to live in applicable climes.
I loved Beaches and that hit song of her involving wings.
Apparently so did the rest of the world because check out her house in New York?
The interiors look like any other well furnished and luxury apartment in Manhattan.
Nice color palette, a few antique and vintage pieces...
The bed and decor seems out of sync with the rest of the house but sometimes you don't want a bed too decorated and stimulating.
It does seem like it is a genuine place of rest.
I love Asian bathtubs.
In fact, I like them so much that I had one similar in the house
I lived in before getting married.
However, if you have any ideas about getting one then please keep in mind that it is meant for soaking only.
Those tubs are designed for people who have already washed and just want to rest.
Not practical for western bathing rituals.
Looks like a library that gets proper use.
Then there is this view of the reservoir in Central Park!
Yes the view is nice enough but living in such a crowded city the open air and unobstructed vista is such a relief.
Odd to see bare floor not cramped with furniture near the staircase.
Real estate square footage being unused is so rare.
Now the flat shows that it is truly special.
Looking at this dining area I would never have thought it was in Manhattan as it is so airy.
The only giveaway you are in the city is the tops of buildings peeking out below.
I always said that I ticked the New York box and while I love to visit I don't think I would live there again but if Bette Midler needs a house-sitter then I would change my mind.
There were a lot of editorials but I chose this casually elegant American style decor by the designer Steven Gambrel.
I love how Americans design their living and sitting rooms in a way that makes you want to sit and chat with a cuppa.
I also had to include what was touted as never before seen photographs from some of the homes of the late philanthropist Bunny Mellon.
I have fallen in love with this latticed vestibule and all those baskets!
I just fell in love with this peaceful nook with that stunning art collection above.
I could imagine sipping tea and unwinding.
Isn't that what a space should do at the end of the day?
What a library!
My local library is about the same size.
Hope you enjoyed browsing the pictures and I plan on pinning some images that didn't make it to the post on my Architectural Digest Pinterest board.
