Apartment Envy: Artfully Appointed


Home to artist Jenna Snyder-Phillips, this gorgeous NYC apartment is littered with bold art work, rich textures and laid back prints (think tropical, animal and tie-dye).   Filling a space with fabulous art and accents is certainly a skill (and not cheap)–it definitely doesn’t hurt to be an accomplished artist!  I’m personally obsessed with the abstract pairing above and below.  Absolutely showstopping.  You can check out more of her fabulous works here.

Lizette Bruckstein San Fran Apartment Den

Home to interior designer Lizette Bruckstein, this expertly curated San Francisco apartment masters the perfect balance of patina and polish.  At first glance, you would never guess the space isn’t, in fact, vintage.  Situated in a downtown highrise, Bruckstein added features like crown molding, chair rails and a vintage fireplace facade to reflect a layered, storied charm.  Rich dark paint amps up the glam factor while keeping true to the overall vintage vibe.

Pops of chartreuse, bold geometric prints and upholstery with clean lines compliment and downplay the Victorian influences.

These brass chairs (above) are everything–NEED to find the source…  And, can we talk about the 19th Century fireplace facade (below)?  A brilliant way to add vintage charm to new construction.

Loving the asymmetrical placement of Victorian mirrors and vintage frames mixed with contemporary art and photographs.  The intricate lines of the mirrors mimics the busy wallpaper but provides just the right amount of polish while the contemporary artwork serves as the juxtaposing focal point.  Also loving the clean lines of the four-post bed and simple solid linens.
