If you have an extra $2,200,000 lying around and are in the market for a new apartment, you may want to check out Gilles Mendel’s chic duplex.  The Pre-War two bedroom space is located on the Upper East Side near all the fabulous stores and luckily comes with walk in closets to store your purchases.  I’m not sure where the designer of J. Mendel is moving but I’m sure it’s to a bigger space to house himself and his growing children.  It was published in the October 2007 issue of Elle Decor and as you can see from the photos, it was styled a little better there than it was in the real estate brochure. If you decide to buy it, maybe you can get him to throw in a dress.

    I LOVE seeing the difference between spaces when they are photographed “as is” versus styled for a magazine!!!

    Beautiful, but I don’t have 2 mil at the moment, lol!
    Of course I love the zebra rug.

    So wish this could be mine! Hope you have had a great summer. I’ve missed all my blog friends so much. Glad to be back.

    Gorgeous! What do you think of the mirrors? I tend to think of mirrored walls as rather tacky, but I have similarly set-up living room (although it’s only two windows across, so it’s narrower). Does it depend on execution? I think it looks beautiful here.

    A Beauty and I just love the wall color in the bedroom, a definite pop! A steep selling price, but one can dream :-)I enjoy your blog!

    Fabulous! It’s so interesting to see the contrast between “styled for magazine” and real living. The place has great bones though so I would definetly buy if I had the extra 2 mill lying around.
