Fabulous Room Friday 09.03.10

Can you believe it’s already September? I must admit, I am freaking out a little bit because I have been hard at work for the past few months on a new project that I hope to announce very, very soon (stay tuned!) and it seems like each month goes by more quickly than the last.

In the meantime, I haven’t been able to get David Kaihoi’s gorgeous, teeny-tiny apartment out of my mind since I first laid my eyes on it in the August issue of House Beautiful. I’m not usually a fan of purple, but it looks so regal and luxe in this space, doesn’t it? I think it comes from the addition of black in the room. The glamorous chandelier doesn’t hurt either.

{Kaihoi had a corner banquette custom-designed in order to maximize the space in his family’s living room. The walls are Purple Haze by Benjamin Moore}

{The same space doubles as the family’s dining room, which is accomplished through the addition of a table. The red Tripp Trapp high chair by Stokke looks fantastic in the setting. Though I must admit, I have no idea how a baby would sit in it. Is it safe?}

 

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Hello Paloma…I find your blog very intriguing and I find myself not getting enough of it. It may be the colors that are drawing me in and these fabulous rooms. I really love this shade of purple. Not sure if my husband would go for it but it’s utterly lovely. Will check back soon.

that seat for the child has a table that goes in the front like a regular high-chair and it also has a strap - my brother had that for my Niece - it's very safe and my Niece loved it ... all of his friends have/had it too .. :o)

I am obsessed with this space, although the idea of living in whatever ridiculously tiny square footage it was mentioned in the article kind of gives me a panic attack.

That is such a happy and glamorous space! I absolutely love it! Haha I'm glad someone explained the high chair! I've been wondering how it worked, too!
