I’ve been saving this house just like I’ve been saving the Mad Men finale (don’t tell me what happens! I haven’t seen it yet!). But arrived in New York today so feeling a bit Manhattan and Mad Men today all in one go – just something about the business and the suits and skyscrapers here that always makes you feel like you’re doing “something”…
But for when you need to duck out of it all, this house seems to have it all which was in House Beautiful a few months back. Furthermore, you can totally see touches of Washington (see? it turns out that DC and NYC are not all that far apart). My personal favorite DC-ism here are the Thomas Pheasant dining chairs (pictured below) – I’ve heard they’re available for purchase on the market now rather than only to the trade but if those don’t fit the bill, they have the same ones at the Hay Adams hotel that you can take a little sit in over a meal. I love some of the colors in the house, especially the saturated teals – that’s all Mad Men for sure – teals…corals…there was something about the hues used then that you just don’t see anymore.
Hello, NYC, it’s good to see you again!
