As promised, I am attaching some pics of my Sunny & Airy UWS brownstone apartment. I am going to miss this place.
View of my living Room.
I love the Bay windows. We have huge south facing windows that let in lots and lots of light.
Living Room: Sofa
I shop a lot from West Elm, CB2, & Pottery Barn. The sofa, glass coffee table and the geometrical neutral rug were purchased from West elm. The Dining bar table in the previous pic is from CB2.
I selected Neutral colors for the furniture and walls. I was not allowed to paint the walls.
I brought in the bright colors (blue and orange) by using decorative pillows. I made these pillow covers from my old saris. I chose the blue and orange accent colors from my painting (shown below).
We picked it up from a street fair in the Upper West Side, last summer. We both loved the bold colors.
