My friends always remark that coming over to my house is a surprise every time: even from week to week, I’ve never not changed things around. It’s a compulsion I’ve had since childhood, when I’d secretly stay up way, way past my bedtime, singlehandedly rearranging my bedroom furniture as quietly as I could, so as not to wake my parents.
So, while my apartment looked like THIS the week it was shot for Nate Berkus’s new book, that arrangement was short-lived. In the intervening months, I’ve slowly been evolving it, working in more color and naturalistic textures. I’ve been trading Regency for midcentury, and metallic for organic. I’ve got a ways yet to go on the redesign (and am still eyeing several of the goodies posted HERE), but have honed in on a few crucial, still-missing elements: a sculptural floor lamp, tassel-trimmed bath towels, earthier glassware, and an untraditional chaise lounge ~ ideal for laying back and losing myself in a great inspiration book (I buy them like gumballs these days!):|ABOVE BOOKS| The Collected Home, by Darryl Carter / The Big Book of Chic, by Miles Redd / Be Your Own Decorator, by Susanna Salk / The Things That Matter, by Nate Berkus
