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.

Designer Lilly Bunn does it again–this time for a modern-day Holly Golightly in Manhattan’s Upper Eastside. Purple grass cloth, an Arteriors starburst pendant, and zebra print rug create a glamorous statement in the entryway.
Lacquered walls in Benjamin Moore’s Bittersweet Chocolate play up the small space, creating a cozy and sophisticated sitting area.
Bunn offsets the moody walls with white accents like floor to ceiling drapes hung by brass rods, a sleek parsons coffee table, and Jonathan Adler Chippendale armchairs.
The lucite game table by Kartell visually lightens the space while also doubling as a dining area. Love it styled with the bamboo folding chairs–another fabulous space saver.
Black painted cabinets in the kitchen mimic a smart butler’s pantry, while a roman shade upholstered in a playful ikat keeps things casual.
A classic blue and white motif carries the youthful vibe to the bedroom where Matouk bed linens and an upholstered headboard are flanked by Bungalow 5 side tables. Gorgeous!
