Let me just get it out of the way….Thank you decorating gods! Our beloved Domino Mag is BACK!!!! I picked up my copy almost two weeks ago and I have looked through it almost every night since. L.O.V.E.
Out of all the stellar content in the new magazine, I can’t seem to get my mind off of the gorgeous Manhattan apartment makeover of Rita Hazan. Black, white, deco, and urban chic all pulled together into one of the most swanky, sexy, and classic interiors I have seen. What designer could pull that off you ask? Why, Nate Berkus of course!! I mean seriously, he is one of the most beautiful men I have ever seen…and he’s crazy talented! The whole package. Yep, I’m talking about his package…
And Nate didn’t just do this design all himself, he teamed up with another fav designer of mine, Jeremiah Brent. You know, the cutie that styled Rachel Zoe‘s home on the Rachel Zoe Project. (side note…they are in LUV) Talk about a power couple! We need to figure out how two men can make a baby, I swear their offspring would solve world peace by shear adorableness!
I’ll stop rambling now…let’s take a look at the couple’s first collaboration.
So, last October, when she moved into a sun-splashed 2,500-square-foot loft on a quiet cobblestone street in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood, she had bought only a white bed and hadn’t yet figured out what to do with the space. A few weeks later, she ran into an old friend, the interior designer Nate Berkus, whom she had met 10 years ago while appearing as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She told him about the apartment, and he said, “I know who you are: black, white, neutral, art deco, urban chic.” -excerpt from Domino article
All the different textures and finishes are what make this monochromatic palette really work. So chic.
You know I love a decor shot with a cute dog…furry children make any room look better. ;)
I would have never thought to paint a wall black, but I am liking how dramatic it is. Definite dinner party material.
She’s definitely a girl after my own heart. Who needs to buy artwork for your walls when you can decorate with your shoes!!!
I think I could begin to embrace this lack of color. Maybe I’ll think about going all ‘silent movie’ on my next house…
