Upon seeing this space, I was immediately on the verge of a serious scream because purple is one of those things (color is a thing, right?) that I want to keep to myself. It’s like that amazing local band that only those bold enough to tread in the dankest parts of the city get to witness. Those bold souls know the nuances of every song, the inflections in the lead singers voice, and which song goes with any given mood. And they know all of that long before the rest of the world does, which is what tends to happen to those things we especially want to keep close to us. We feel betrayed, annoyed when they appear on late night tv or hit a million YouTube views because the public is only appreciating them when money and popularity are involved. But I digress… While purple has been around longer than my thirty-odd years, it’s still mine. You hear me, purple? You belong to me. But, yes, you do this apartment justice, particularly the rug.
Calling all glam girls… Looking for a little design and décor inspiration in this new year? You know, a mirror there, a decadent chandelier here, shoes doubling as fashion statements and unique décor, plus pure glam, some of which is amazingly on a budget. Check out Sai Sankoh’s apartment, featured on Apartment Therapy. It’s too good not to share. For lots of tips and info into where this editor of the style blog, Because I Am Fabulous, discovered her pieces, be sure to make a visit to Apartment Therapy.
I’m so nosey. I really am. Actually I think most people are and may just call it curious, but I’m going to put it out there. I am nosey. I like to see the way other people live in an effort to get fresh ideas and sparks of inspiration when the urge to renew my own space hits.
And quite literally I am changing my apartment around on a weekly basis. No space layout is safe. And I always take notes from Kelly Wearstler. I haven’t been able to check out her new book Rhapsody yet, but I can’t wait to dig in. In the meantime we have these shots from The Coveteur to tie us over.
Honestly, no one knows her way around brass décor and artful mix or color and patterns like Wearster. It’s not for everyone, but it’s certainly for me and I’m pretty sure my fellow eclectics would agree.
I’ve put it on my agenda to visit her Los Angeles boutique next time I’m in SoCal to get her full mix of fashion design and interior design. Her accessories and clothes are a seamless extension of her interior styling.
Check out The Coveteur to get the full tour and to scope out her personal collection of heels.
