our top 3 of 2008 (from the mags), no. 2

our second favorite projects from our pile of 2008 decorating magazines is this stunning new york apartment, by the talented bill sofield (studio sofield, featured in world of interiors, december, 2008, photography simon upton).

drop. dead. gorgeous.
mrs. blandings, in a more timely recap of 2008, already showed the living room, so y'all can scurry on over there to see it, but what really captured our attention were these amazing walls and marble, with crystal sconces in one, and completely fabulous de gournay hand painted carp wallpaper with creamy carrara & gilt, in the other; with shapely mirrors hung on antique venetian glass walls in both. this is the kind of decorating that makes us weak in the knees.the silk dynasty black ceramic on canvas wall covering in this entry vestibule is an amazing choice, and we were crazy for the mirrored ceiling in the hall (and don't get us started on the pair of stag's head consoles- anyone know if they are vintage or modern?).
decorating at it's most sublime. thank you, mr. sofield.

This one definitely deserves its spot. Beyond beyond.

I'll take that 2nd bath with creamy carrera and venetian mirrors. Bee-u-tiful!

I could not agree more. It's just sublime. This is the kind of apartment that makes me want to change professions - because I feel so unworthy in his shadow...
