Most Manhattan dwellers aren’t exactly known to live in large spaces, but a girl can dream. For those of you who do have spare rooms to decorate, your stately dream house isn’t complete without interior-designer objects of your desire and affection. From iconic furniture pieces in the lounging room to a beautiful, dramatic bathroom fixture, the following products will extravagantly enhance your interior space:
Eames Lounge Chair — Sitting Room
Engulf yourself in timeless, modern style while sitting in the classic Eames lounge chair and ottoman. The iconic Herman Miller leather furniture pieces are crafted with molded plywood and are luxuriously comfortable for reading “Atlas Shrugged” or taking a disco nap after a long day of work.
Hästens Vividus — Bedroom
Retreat to the Hästens Vividus hand-crafted masterpiece — a world-class bed designed for dreams of faraway places and optimal rest. Among floor-to-ceiling drapery and custom window treatments, Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring, and stately crystal lighting, the Hästens Vividus complements the epicurean space with its grandeur and comfort excellence.
The Brass Bateau — Bathroom
Adorn your master bathroom with the indulgent Catchpole & Rye brass bathtub that makes anyone feel like grand royalty. The 100 percent brass bathtub stands as more of a statuesque art piece with its breathtaking, hand-beaten finish and flawlessly polished look. Propped up against the tub, pamper yourself with a natural sea sponge, organic sugar scrub and REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil.
CAVICCHI Billiard Tables — Game Room
Entertain fabulous guests by drinking Scotch on the rocks and catching up on current events during a game of pool. For the pool aficionado, customize your billiard by hand-selecting details such as dimensions, pocket shapes and wooden features. Following a gourmet dinner, invite guests to play a round of pool. Not only can you impress your guests with your top-notch gaming skills but with your polished aesthetic taste as well.
Italian Etagère — Kitchen
Accent your kitchen space by installing a vintage Italian étagère for eye-catching vertical dimension. To mimic affluent designer Darryl Carter’s townhouse in D.C., install oyster-colored cabinetry and granite countertops as well as a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, describes ElleDecor.com. The antique étagère serves as your eatery focal point and can also aesthetically store dishware.
Holloways of Ludlow Lamp — Office
Illuminate the office study or your home library with the sensuous glow of a Bernard-Albin GRAS-designed industrial lamp. HGTV host, designer and stylist, Emily Henderson, adores the lighting feature for its cast-iron pedestal and oak table base. Turn the lamp onto your desk as you study maps for your next overseas adventure or while managing your finances.
Serene Collection — Poolside
Escape poolside on a Serene collection furniture piece by Henry Hall Designs — a high-end company that specializes in innovative and timeless outdoor products for relaxation and socializing. By accessorizing your pool and landscape with a Henry Hall day bed or lounge chairs with a coffee table, you’ll transform your backyard into a first-class oasis for tranquility and afternoon napping in the sunshine.
Superodinate Antler Pendant — Dining Room
Create a rustic and eclectic ambience in your dining room by making a statement with an antler chandelier installation. The Jason Miller-designed light fixture is described as nature made better and a collision between high-end contemporary design and hunting-lodge decor. Even more exciting, the ceramic antlers cast shadows onto the walls. Dim the lights and cozy up underneath antler lighting with a Moscow Mule in a copper mug and Interior Design Magazine.
Living in a tiny apartment on the west side of Midtown Manhattan, I’m always looking for beautiful ways to save space. To make this fancy nail polish and makeup station, I saved the vase my boyfriend sent me a dozen roses in on Valentine’s Day, filled it with my favorite nail polish colors, and topped it off with makeup brushes, eyeliner, and a handy nail file. It’s not only a beautiful decoration, but it’s a functional way to store my makeup and nail polish that doesn’t involve having all my beauty products thrown across my windowsill.
Earlier this week, I attended the preview of Carol Brodie’s Namesake Collection of opulent home and fashion accessories sold exclusively on HSN. Since I aspire to live everyday as if it were an opulent affair, I love this classy collection designed to ward off haters. When Carol Brodie thanked everyone for joining her at the Soho House for her collection’s preview, she explained the significance behind the evil eye present in most of her jewelry in home designs. It’s meant to ward off the haters who want to bring you down when you’re on your way up. Though you need your haters because if you don’t have them you’re not making enough of a dent in the universe, like Carol, I prefer the company of my love circle to my hate circle and I’m proud to call myself a member of this collection’s love circle. I also must say that the evil eye cupcakes were a delicious touch and that her candles smell amazing.
Can’t get enough of warding off haters with Carol Brodie’s signature evil eye
Sparkly Socialite Pillows!
I often find myself dreaming about Oasis’ “Champagne Supernova in the Sky” though this is probably a reference to some unsavory behavior involving hallucinogens, it makes me think of penthouse apartments and private helicopter rides, the products of living large. Socialites often live in a world of their own and I am no exception. Though I physically reside in the real world, my mind is permanently located high above the flat line in the champagne supernova in the sky. Finding socialite fame is only a matter of having these two worlds collide. When I spotted Monica Rich Kosann’s Planet Collection necklaces on Ramshackle Glam, I fell in love with their design and intergalactic elegance.
As an impeccable storyteller herself, Monica Rich Kosann makes all of her pieces with the purpose of allowing a woman to tell her story while expressing her fashion sense. They are often described as “heirlooms for our generation” designed to be passed along to the next making her work truly timeless. Retailing for well over $2,500, the Planet Collection is not only out of this world, for now, it is also well out of my price range. But, that never stopped me from aspiring.
