I just got back from my trip to NYC and I loved it! Such a great vibrant, active, fast city: so many things to see, visit and do. I don’t think there’s an easy way to describe it.
While I’m trying to edit the almost 2000 pics I took, I leave you with this amazing Brooklyn Apartment by and for the Architect Brent Allen Buck, which I think represents the perfect NY Style: chich, vintage, sophisticated and simple at the same time:
The living room is a triumph of vintage design pieces: two Finn Juhl 45 armchairs, sitting below the pendant lamp Louis Weisdorf Multi-Lite by Gubi. The wall cabinets are “The Florence” by Knoll and the George Nelson cupboard by Herman Miller
The palette is white and wood for all the main elements used in the kitchen. I love the collection of pepper mills from Jens Quistgaard !!
The big staircase is a main feature of the apartment, I love the wood handrail that match the rest of the furniture, like the pretty Norman Cherner armchair.
The bedroom and bathroom are very bright and spacious, simple vintage pieces are also used in here: the Eames Plastic Chair by Vitra, the wood table tray and the original cast iron freestanding bath tub.
The exterior just brings me back to my last week in NYC , walking past the miles and miles of typical brown brick houses around the city … I miss it already.
Hope you enjoyed, more posts about my trip will be coming soon..
