Manhattan Mix

There is something about the colors in this Manhattan apartment designed by Burley Katon Halliday that seemed like a perfect post for Mother’s Day.  It is owned by Kiane von Mueffling who hails from Australia which is probably why she chose BKH who have offices in New York and Australia.  It was also featured in American Elle Decor and Australian Vogue Living. I love the pale shades mixed with the pops of color and also the artwork and photography in the apartment.  It feels relaxing, just as Mother’s Day should be.

    That blue de Gournay wallpaper is completely bananas – I could paper my entire world in that, and be completely happy!

    What a gorgeous, sleek, yet comfortable abode! I loved the unique items but also the clean lines – it makes for such an interesting mix!

    Sublime. Love that never-ending upholstered bench along the windows; a very interesting use of the space. And I always love back-to-back sofas. Yes, please!

    This is definitely one of my favorite apartments, ever. I’ve been obsessed since I saw it in Elle Decor. Perfect for a young family that wants livable elegance!

    I loved this in Elle Decor. Those green chairs really added some zing to the room. Feels so airy and uplifting.

    Such a lovely apartment! Thanks for sharing. I hope you don’t mind, but I used some of these pictures (accredited to you: http://www.style-edition.com/)

    I love both of her beach photos!
