The elevator opens up directly into the apartment so created a welcoming vingette with a dresser that her mother grew up with in her home and vintage lamps she found in an antiques shop in New York that are possibly from the 1950's. The painting above is by Michael Ray Charles and the rug was picked up in India.
I love that she floated the sofa from Mitchell Gold in the middle of the room and wish more people would try this set up. The light Belgiun linen upholstery is the perfect neutral back drop for the custom green Belgian linen pillows with chocolate brown velvet borders. The vintage coffee table was found at John Derian while the box on it was brought back from a trip to Vietnam. The metal desk in the back is vintage.
I think Georgia's home is not only a great reflection of her style but great way to live these days. There is that wonderful mix of family antiques, vintage furniture, pieces picked up traveling, things that were painted or repurposed, and new items from big retailers that creates a uniquely personal home. But then again, I didn't expect anything less from the chic and gracious Georgia Tapert!
