I didn’t have a before shot of this little nook. I can tell you though that Liz has added a Vetri Mushroom lamp and silver spotlight floor lamp. She has kept all of her Gothic sconces and the Chandelier is in the same spot. There is pattern on the chair and cushions that wasn’t there before.
Liz has broken her ‘only vintage/ second hand’ decorating philosophy and added the Philippe Starck ‘Louis ghost chair’ which doesn’t weigh the already tiny space down. With storage space being a huge issue in this tiny loft, Liz has put to use her walls for her huge collection of books. How great would it look if the bindings were painted white?
This was one of my favourite areas in the ‘before’ shot. I love the red cross cushion, but I don’t think I would cover that gorgeous Louis chair…I just couldn’t! Still pools of curtain on the floor. The slight re-arrangements make for a whole new fabulous loft space that still screams ‘Francophile’, but in the heart of NY…love it!
