The Space that Launched 1,000 Blogs


Or just mine, at least. It's my 100th post and I have Ivanka Trump to thank! About a year ago, I fell for her fresh, colorful, and sophisticated, New York apartment in InStyle Magazine. On a google hunt for a garden stool in Atlanta (like the one pictured above), I stumbled into the amazing (and addictive) world of design blogs. How appropriate that my 100th post should fall right before Thanksgiving, as I want to say thank you to all of the bloggers for their artistic inspiration, humorous insight and the much needed creative outlet.


So much has been said about this super cute apartment already, that I refer anyone seeking more, to Style Court's original coverage of the Emma Jane Pilkington designed space. All The Best also did an interesting Profile on Ivanka Trump earlier this month. Instead, I will leave you with a clip of Ivanka sporting her best I-am-so-much-smarter-than-you attitude in this behind-the-scenes interview at the InStyle photo shoot.



Happy Thanksgiving!

I love the image you selected here, with that much loved red lacquered lampshade. And as always your smart/funny spin.

BTW, Mandarin on Miami Circle has similar garden stools. Congrats on your 100th post!

The red lacquered shade is tempting me to leave my classic black behind. I read you every day, so thanks to you,too, for being a part of the party.

Just when I really thought I'd run out of things to look up on the internet, I found the world of blogs, too. And it's so much fun--especially yours. Your style and humor is great.

Thanks for sharing, I still hadn't seen some of those images - I know, it's hard to believe..
I think I started blogging for similar reasons, most of the google searches I was doing for designers and design references turned up being from blogs, so I also joined the ranks. Congrats on your 100th blog post!

SGM said...

Can I just do a little jealous whisper that it's not fair that someone so young should have such a gorgeous apartment? :)
I am your devoted reader, Brilliant A!

Hers is a beautiful space and she is a beautiful girl. But that whole "garner favor" thing just turned me off. Modesty is a lovely attribute.

Teal Chic said...

Thank you for this gorgeous post. I initially saw her apartment on Oprah, and I've been obsessed ever since. I love the teal bookshelves, it's so refreshing!!! Thanks again, I appreciate it :)
