…pretty perfect…

Stumbled upon Jill Stuart’s phenomenal Manhattan apt. by architect Annabelle Seldorf, and couldn’t help but notice how the designer’s Spring 2012 line-up evokes a similar style: clean, modern, delicate, with thoughtful use of color.

    That rooftop just made me sick with jealousy. And that bedroom, with those windows! There are no words.

    Oh, love it. A kitchen with blue that isn’t kitschy is a rare find. I loved this collection, and I do see the parallels. xo

    wow, the apartment is absolutely beautiful. I think I’d probably ruin it, however, if I actually lived there. I’m a little messy with all my crazy crafting!

    Her home has long been a favorite of mine. I don’t look my best in flowy shapes, but the sorbet colors are to die for!

    I love the work of Seldorf Architects and have been following them for years. This apartment is stunning – so calm and serene.
    Love the bathroom, nothing like a bath with view!

    No seriously, how gorgeous is that living room? Love the touches of pink here and there, and that leather bench? no no, that room is perfection for me ;)

    Love the color palette of the clothing collection. There’s still something about coral, pinks and turquoise that makes me smile.

    Honestly, stick me just on that rooftop and let me look at the inside, and I would be one happy, inspired camper. Or I’ll take the magenta + white room with the insane windows for natural light. Breathtaking.

    I have seen some of these images before but didn’t know they were part of the same place, neither they were from Jill Stuart Home! AND would have never thought about the similitude with his collection! but yes! totally!… who wouldn’t be inspired there!
