A touch of dark glamour to get us all in the mood for Halloween.
The New York home of fashion designer Anna Sui.
It may be monochrome but it’s still ultra girly. And dramatic and glamorous. I love the combination of the antiqued glass wall, the black wallpaper and the ultra glossy floor. And who doesn’t like an inlay chest and rococo mirrors? I might however, have to draw the line at a taxidermy peacock!
This is Anna’s second apartment in this Manhattan block where she has lived since 2000. She decided it would make a great spot for spreading out to work on book projects and by the look of the next photograph to cope with the overflow from her wardrobe.
Pretty much everything in the space is black or white with touches of gold since Anna subscribes to one of Dorothy Draper’s decorating tricks “if in doubt paint it black”. I couldn’t agree more. It’s a great way to get furniture from different periods and different sources and even different woods to go together.
Anna’s apartment appeared in Elle Decor in 2009.
