Marlie’s Apartment Update: Art Explosion and Accessory Shopping

We have hit the final stretch now at Marlie’s apartment after a few long months of planning, sourcing and shopping up a storm. Long gone are the puke green walls and orange-tinged wood laminate flooring – now a beautiful rich brown bamboo floor has been laid and the walls are coated in a warm creamy tone. I’d be remiss to not point out that killer accent wall in her office nook too! (I faint over the fact that I finally got to use a Cole and Son Fornasetti wallpaper!) Most of the furniture is installed and now it’s time for the finishing touches that will make her house a home.

An eclectic mix of original art from local talent, such as Tony Taylor and Mike Brown, along with some fabulous posters and prints sourced on ebay, PI Fine Art and other sources have been custom framed and are ready to go.

Sourcing accessories has been lots of fun - this past weekend we picked up the crystal  pineapple (who we have named Antonio because it is being used as part of the set decor for an Antonio Banderas movie shooting this week in the city) and tangerine splatter urns from Decorum Decorative Finds. We also scooped up these sharp white plastic pears and apples from L’Atelier to use as part of a centerpiece for her dining table.

I’m excited to show you some more snapshots as the project finishes up!
