WHITE GLAM // Sleek & Sexy

…Elizabeth Sullivan’s bachelorette pad redux…

For those of you not acquainted with Elizabeth Sullivan and her blog Modern 24/7, believe me, I’m doing you a favor by exposing you to her talent and the recent remodel of her apartment!

Elizabeth runs a high-end furniture showroom in New Orleans by day, and by night, writes a blog that is a daily read for me. She knows her stuff, has exquisite taste, introduces me to the most sophisticated interiors, and always seems to stay a step ahead of the trends. While her previous pad (seen all over the blogosphere and here) is still very current with a slightly more vintage-y colorful palette, her new pad — with its white, clean, organic, sophisticated elements — recall for me the refined eclectic chic style of designers like Jean-Louis Deniot and Vicente Wolf.

My favorite piece? So difficult to choose but I’d have to go with the 1970’s Milo Baughman-esque arm chair she bought on eBay and had completely reupholstered in a sexy smokey pale blue velvet. No really, you need to see what it looked like before! (And while we are at it, please check out what her now lovely white tufted sofa used to be!)

Elizabeth’s style has been a major influence on me with my own home. It fascinates me to find that as her taste continues to evolve, so does mine. I can’t wait to see where it goes next!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. I am in love with her style…it is so elevated. White is so fresh and clean and always a good idea, when done right – and she definitely does it right! I will have to go and officially meet her blog! Thanks for the intro! XO brynn

  2. I really like the feminine glam type style, but sometimes I feel that it looks a little overdesigned with tons of ‘stuff’ and lots of reflective surfaces. I LOVE that her apartment is a little minimal but still has a great sense of personality and style.

  3. I truly wish I could move right into her newly decorated place. Every single detail is perfection and so very gorgeous !! Love love love.


  4. OMG, I knew I chose you out of everyone in the world to be my blogging bestie for a reason! You are the sweetest!! Thank you so much for the feature, the kind words, and for being my sounding board. It is so fun to have a “design twin” in the world and I am also excited about where we are headed. I have already sold several of these pieces and am dreaming/designing my next space!

  5. Love love loving everything! The lucite/wood coffee table, vintage chair, lucite desk, and all of the styling! Amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  6. White is my favorite “color” for the house. It looks clean and nice, you can add hints of color easily and change them when your style changes and it is always working well because it`s so versatile. In the pictures above you can see very well how anything can look styled when you use white.

  7. Wow, this is so gorgeous! So sophisticated and polished. I LOVE the white pillows on the couch, with the little reflective mirrors-a perfect little glam touch. And the bookcase with the open siding is something I’ve always lusted after. Seriously beautiful space.

  8. Incredible. What a gorgeous home. I always, always love seeing how people decorate. Such an inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Home envy!!! I love Elizabeth and Love her style. I’m so glad you showcased her gorgeous home!! Ahhhh all i want to do is redecorate, but first things first right!! Do you know where she got her desk? I’m dying for it! xoxo

  10. I could look at these pics over and over. I keep finding things to love!! My favorite part is the way she brought so much warmth into a space that could easily feel too cold. Ahhhh, beautiful!

  11. Oh my LORD!!! This home is 100% perfection!!!! That lucite desk is out of control!!! Well, everything is out of control really! LOVE THIS!! xoxo
