Steven Sclaroff

This apartment was also posted earlier this month (on Peak of Chic), but I wanted to post it again because I think it’s beautiful and deserves the attention! This is another masterpiece by decorator/antiquarian Steven Sclaroff.
Let me just say, I think the man is a genius with colour, and has a knack for creating rooms that look comfortable and lived in. Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of minimalism (sometimes), but if it’s not done right the place just ends up looking like a hotel room to me. I think its really important for a home to have pieces that have a personal history and for a home to be imbued with the life and memories of the occupants.

The living room is an amazing mixture of fabrics, colours and art.

The dining room is a symphony of pattern and colour.

I love the colours in the main bedroom.

I love this sitting room. The colours are so relaxing and a bit moody, but I love the arrangement of art on the walls.

Steven Sclaroff & Kate Spade

I know this apartment has been blogged about a million times, but I still love it. Kate Spade is an awesome designer, I totally love her preppy style, and her general chic-ness. This is the apartment she shares with her husband Andy Spade (brother to David Spade, the actor) and baby in New York. They had Steven Sclaroff help them with the decor. I love the mix (dare I use the overused word ‘eclectic’?) of colours, styles and furnishings, coupled with their collection of contemporary art.

I wish Sclaroff’s website actually had project photos on it…

Entrance with collection of drawings etc. I love the wall colour…

The living room is a crazy mix of colours, styles and somehow it all works.

They even make taxidermy look stylish.

I love the wallpaper (it looks like silk or seagrass to me), and the bright colours.

Another view of the master bedroom – I love the red striped fabric next to that chest of drawers.

Ensuite bathroom.
Spare bedroom (my husband would never let me use that much toile in the house, let alone one room!!).

Love the kitchen banquette and the tiled floor.
