Anthro, eat your heart out
Time for another drool-worthy studio! Featured on Apartment Therapy: NY (can you tell that AT is the first site I visit on my Google Reader?), Ida lives in a parlor-turned-studio in the Harlem/Sugar Hill area of New York.
The giant windows and the mirror above the fireplace fill the room with natural light, and the gray walls tone it down and keep the brightness from assaulting your eyes. I like the airy color palette going on in here: the gray walls, the white mantel and moulding and bedding, anchored with a few earthy neutrals at floor-level. It looks like a freakin' Anthropologie catalogue! I also have to agree with one of the commenters on the AT post: putting the bed and settee on a diagonal is a great idea. It makes the place feel less formal and more dynamic.
Ida not only lucked out in finding this awesome place, but she's got a flair for detail herself. The newsprint flower on her mantel is adorable!
