Hamish Bowles’ New York Apartment

Featured in the gorgeous new book New York Behind Closed Doors , Hamish Bowles’ New York apartment is what neo-trad dreams are made of. Theses photos, which were shared by Vogue, were photographed by Annie Schlechter. Look familiar…? The colorful home was previously photographed by Simon Upton for The World of Interiors November 2014 issue (I treasure my copy), and is memorable to say the least. My favorite room is Bowles’ lilac print bedroom. Can you even imagine waking up in that floral fantasy land?! Below, explore more of the inspiring space. READ POST

The Chic Halloween Table

With Halloween just around the bend, I’ve got pumpkins on the brain. The key to a Halloween that is more chic that kitsch…? Subtly. I suggest sticking with a timeless autumnal color palette (love burnt orange, chocolate brown, chalky white…), and adding seasonal pieces with restraint. A skull old-fashioned glass here or pumpkin tureen there is plenty—remember, less is more. Consider arranging some beautiful gourds down the center of your table or swapping out your usual silver flatware for a gold or copper set. Other Halloween trends I love this year? Plaid, linen, and velvet accents. Below, find over 40 pieces for your Halloween table. Enjoy! Above, a lovely ceramic pumpkin cocette.
