Interiors : Jessica Stam's Manhattan Apt.


I recently came across these images of model Jessica Stam's NYC apartment and marveled at the oasis of feminine glamour that designer Rafael de Cárdenas created for her. The vintage wallcoverings along with the 20th-century furniture and accessories lend a sophisticated and fresh feel to the Hollywood Regency style that is evoked. The jewel toned palette of purples and metallics is coolly elegant and pretty. I'm not sure if I could personally live with this much color but I can certainly admire it. What about you?

Okay, now I know what I want my dream home to look like...this is stunning, the mood and colour palette is so dreamy!

I've seen the living room photos before and it was wonderful to get a chance to view the rest of her apartment. Colour-wise it is a bit too much for me, but it's a beautiful place indeed. x

My husband would say "hell no" if i mentioned purple or lavender...ha. He has already had a problem with me wanting a chandelier in a house, not even a grand one just a small and lovely chandelier.

Her apartment is utterly feminine and beautiful. However i prefer my bedroom to have neutral colors. It is easy on the eyes i think.

Well! First, she is gorgeous :) Second, I agree - although I couldn't live with all the color and design forms.. there are pieces of her decor that are stunning. The drapes are so pretty as is some of the furniture. This is a beautiful space and very well designed :) Thanks for sharing.

The colours are so beautiful here. I'm more into those lamps, work of art rather! :)

It's very pretty Rowena. I'm like you, I don't know if I could live with all of that color. I usually like simple backgrounds and added color through couches, flowers, rugs etc.

I'm totally okay with all the color although purple isn't a color I'd want in that amount in my own home {I know plenty of people who do}. I love all the wallpapers and the lighting.

Rebecca said...

What an amazing house! I personally love all the color! So cool!

Love the girly colors mixed with metallics and ornate details. I could live in it. Well, my room growing up had these colors minus the metallics and elaborate details so I did live in it. I like the touch of metallics :)

Such a glamorous apartment! But I can't imagine how long she'd spend/actually live there since models are so international.
