A Ballerina Jeweled-Tone Apartment at The Dakota Building

If you think all ballerinas live in a loft in Soho with bars on the walls and leather sofas then you may be mistaken.  This beautiful 4,700 sf apartment at the Dakota building in New York City proves that nothing further than that concept.  This ballerina apartment abounds with color on the walls, hand painted de Gournay wallpaper, sumptuous crystal chandeliers and a four poster mirrored bed just to mention a few of its proving points.  The overall atmosphere in this apartment is a refined and feminine space with a mélange of 50's and 70s pieces enveloped in jewel colors.  The unique design of the space is the work of Interior Designer Sasha Bikoff.

Friday Eye Candy: Chanel Perfume Bottle Shaped Evening Bag

I'm loving Chanel late style bags.  The perfume bottle shaped evening bag is especially chic, fun and playful.  I have always loved everything Chanel but haven't felt the same about its classic flap bags.  Chanel is an iconic brand and everything that carries its name has a strong identity, principally the flap bags.  You can spot them a mile away.  I'm happy Karl Lagerfeld is bringing in new bag design styles as the Boy Chanel and other fun playful kinds.  I think it targets a younger crowd while refreshing the image of the brand.  Enjoy!


Swans: Legends of the Jet Society by Nicholas Foulkes

Swan: Legends of the Jet Society book gives us a glance into the aristocratic world of the privileged and jet setters.  Written by Nicholas Foulkes, the book is full of beautiful images and anecdotes detailing the luxurious lifestyle of an elite way of life.  Traveling in private jets and luxurious yachts, throwing decadent parties and wearing haute couture are some of the indulges we get to see in this book.  Clearly a must-have book to any chic library.

Kara Rosenlund: A Vignette Master

A Vignette in Interior Design is a small grouping of beautifully and carefully arrangements of items.  A vignette could be a sitting area or a table top setting assembled in a pleasant and personal way to create a desired result - aesthetically speaking.  Some people are masters at creating vignettes that are as inspiring as they are purposeful.  One of those people is Kara Rosenlund from Australia.  She creates beautiful arrangements that always carry a theme, a story or some reference.  Here are a few of the images that have caught my eye in her Instagram feed.  Enjoy!
