DÉCOR | INTERIOR DESIGNER : EMMA JANE PILKINGTON

DÉCOR | INTERIOR DESIGNER : EMMA JANE PILKINGTON

AND AFTER FEATURING the work of interior designer, Emma Jane Pilkington, a glimpse into her stunning Manhattan apartment, which has been described as "champagne with a twist". The pale & perfect neutrals set off by ebony and rich wood tones are the very definition of calm, intermingled with luxurious velvets and Venetian mirrors, an extraordinary mix of modern, Regency and Louis XVI pieces, Bronze 19th-century sconces with original gilding and antique French chandeliers. . .

"Many eras are represented in a Manhattan home's office, which contains a Directoire daybed, a George II–style mirror, an Empire chandelier, an Art Deco table with a Jansen stool, and an Arne Jacobsen Egg chair in velvet."

STYLE INSPIRATION | AT THE OFFICE : SOMETIMES SEQUINS

YESTERDAY WAS extraordinarily busy, leading me to think that today was Thursday, instead of Friday, and since it is not and an entire day has somehow disappeared into the universe, there is nothing left to do but don sequins and make elaborate plans for the weekend . . . But first, a few things left to finish up at the office -- emails and errands and always organisation, and of course, a little more inspiration here, as well as a few lovely links to come . . .

TRAVEL | PLACES : THE HISTORIC GRITTI PALACE, VENICE

IN A 15TH-CENTURY PALAZZO on the Grand Canal, the Gritti Palace hotel whisks us into an extraordinary world of silver-leafed ceilings and Venetian-stucco walls, Cremo Tirreno marble and bleached-and-lacquered herringbone floors, and exquisite Murano lamps with Fortuny-fabric shades . . .

TRAVEL | PLACES : THE HISTORIC GRITTI PALACE, VENICE

There are suites such as the amazing pink 
Pisani suite, with its perfectly ornate foliate mouldings that form cartouches painted in contrasting colours inset with art and gilded decorative objects . . .

DÉCOR INSPIRATION : BOHO-CHIC IN MANHATTAN

DÉCOR INSPIRATION : BOHO-CHIC IN MANHATTAN

BOHEMIAN IS NOT something am normally drawn to, and yet, inexplicably drawn to this bright and beautiful Greenwich Village apartment. The home of Michael Mailer, a film producer and Sasha Lazard, an opera singer & heiress, it was published an astonishing 8 years ago, in 2006. The décor still looks lovely today, even if the couple are no longer together . . .

DÉCOR INSPIRATION : BOHO-CHIC IN MANHATTAN

Decorated by Emma Jane Pilkington, the townhouse showcases the designer's signature pairings of carefully selected clean-lined and classic furniture with luxurious textiles and shots of colour.

OFF TO MEETINGS first thing this morning, but first wanted to stop in say hello! & to leave you with today's beautiful interior inspiration, by mother-daughter design team, Kemble Interiors, New York. Founded in 1982 by Mimi Maddock McMakin, a native of Palm Beach, she would be joined by her daughter after a brief career in film production, to partner with her mother and run the New York office. And so, here, in tufted headboards and enchanting seashell fireplaces, a sample of their work . . .

"In life as in design, it is not perfection you should be after. There's beauty in the faded and worn, the well loved, and the sentimental...After all, life has seams. Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, memories, practical, notions, and even compromises." —Celerie Kemble

AS YOU KNOW, have been madly in love with the colour pink since the beginning of time, and the same for leopard print, and even both together at once, and on the heels of Victoria's spring pinks, one can imagine how perfectly wonderful it was to happen upon Blair at Atlantic-Pacific's pairing of these favourite things, in the form of a pink Asos skirt, and a jacket by Malene Birger—perfectly pretty for the office . . .

{fashion inspiration | romantic spring style : pink hues}

by victoria berezhnaread previous articles



LA VIE EN ROSE seems to be the slogan this spring, for everyone is smitten with all hues of pink, from bubblegum to petal. While before, pink was almost too cliché for springtime, it seems this year, it is being taken seriously by fashion, appearing on coats and sweaters, taking the form of everything from faux fur to cashmere, either worn as a statement colour, or as a classic, understated one . . .

AND THIS WEEKEND has been all lattes and late starts, meandering the shops, new lip balms and hand creams and magazines and lunch at a new charming! place and a table for two by the window to watch the world go by. . . Early next week, it's off to a stay at a cottage in the Lakes, on the way to studio visits on Tuesday for work. And this new year has already been filled with grand plans and promise and dreams achieved, and we've only just begun . . .
