Accessible drama…featured collections…graphic.


I just spotted this great feature on interior designer Philip Gorrivan’s Upper East Side apartment in December’s Elle Decor, photographed by William Waldron.

I absolutely adore the dining area with built in banquet, gallery style collection, and variety of different but complimentary chairs.  In the article, Gorrivan sites the lobby of the Carlyle hotel as decorated by Dorothy Draper in 1930.

There is a fantastic graphic quality to this space, yet totally accessible as two young children live here.  Can’t you just picture them eating breakfast and doing homework in the nook (fashionably too)?

Living in San Francisco where space is also at a premium, this arrangement is extremely inspiring.
