When I was going through my tear sheets the other day, I came across this apartment that was featured in Quest magazine a few years ago. The owner was a young woman in Manhattan who was starting a career as a clothing designer. To me, this apartment is so perfect for a young woman. It's youthful but sophisticated with a little bit of spunk thrown in to the mix.
The walls of the living room are a deep turquoise- a color that is a little unusual but completely dramatic. In order to keep the room from looking too dark, the floors are painted in a white and brown checkerboard pattern. For some shots of color, orange, yellow and brown are used to great effect. And the wallpaper in the entry! I think this particular print (can someone tell me what it is?) provides a little maturity to the apartment. All in all, a pretty great apartment for a lucky young woman. What do you think?
