Goes my little heart.

Have you gotten your hands on the new House Beautiful? I think my favorite issues of shelter mags are those that feature small spaces. I do like to see the grand estates for fun, but the small spaces are more often what inspire me and get my creative juices flowing.

This HB issue is fantastic, and the bedroom above is indication of that. It's a small NYC apartment designed by David Kaihoi - the Chinoiserie wallpaper in this room is insanely good. Kaihoi found it at an auction - an 18th century paper that was in rough shape - and he pieced it together to create this fabulous wall treatment in the bedroom (how will he ever be able to leave?!) The rest of the apartment is awash in saturated jewel tones, dripping with style. What a creative aesthetic. Love.


  1. Oooh, I can't wait to get mine. It hasn't arrived yet! Judging from this preview, I know I'll be in love with this issue!

  2. Loved that entire department and I instantly thought of you when I saw that bedroom. Isn't it fabulous?!

  3. and by department I meant apartment...::sigh:: long morning already!!!!

  5. Wow love this bedroom. The pink chinoiserie wallpaper is stunning. Love the mix of wallpaper paired with the hudson river blanket on the bed.

  6. I actually thought about you and Beth (Chinoiserie Chic) when I saw that room!

  7. Greetings! I just discovered your blog (I am coming over from "House of Turquoise") and it is LOVELY! I just became a Follower and a Subscriber. I will have to come back and read all of your old posts. As for this post, YES, I get House Beautiful and saw that room. Gorgeous. And how did you like that really deep purple on the walls of their sitting room/living area??!! For such a small apartment, it certainly was chic. Well, it was nice meeting you. I will be back!
    Best regards,
