The Urbane Traveller by Eileen Joyce for Bloomingdale's
Bloomingdale's Big Window Challenge 2010, Room #3
DESIGNED FOR A sophisticated travel magazine editor
INSPIRED BY This New York City apartment-inspired space is inhabited by a sophisticated travel magazine editor who collects objects from around the world. The room as an early 1960's sensibility, combining modern furnishings with a grass cloth wall covering and appliqué fabric as the window treatment. It's a mix of primitive, Asian, folk art and photography in an urban environment — all anchored by a custom-patterned area rug.
The Writer's Romantic Supper by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan for Apartment Therapy
Bloomingdale's Big Window Challenge 2010, Room #2
DESIGNED FOR Amor
INSPIRED BY The Writer's Library, inspired by my friend, Amor, is a dark, bookish den in which a romantic dinner has been surprisingly set for a female guest. The room is piled high with books and features items that may have come from far off travels. The side walls are painted faux bookcases for this display and inspired by the Studiolo at the MET. The room decor centers on the large, leather Ralph Lauren chair, the memorable Neisha Crosland wallpaper and accessories from Michele Varian with her funky, steampunk style.
DESIGNED FOR A media mogul and mother of two
INSPIRED BY The signature space shimmers with a mix of classic and modern, new and old, together with a balance of bold patterns and vibrant colors. A spatter-paint print, like stars in an endless sky, reflects the owner's love of travel to wide-open spaces, and her passion for sparkling evenings at home entertaining friends and family.
