Obviously my blog has nothing to do with politics (unless it’s related to Scandal or House of Cards, of course) but when I saw the cute NYC apartment of Barbara Bush via Vogue.com I wanted to share. To me her place feels like a great example of a personal home. The items in her space all seem to have a story behind them- from a blanket found with her mom on an antiquing trip to a painting done of her cat by her former president father (which is kinda cute, right?) to African masks from her work on that continent. This is a wonderful example of a space reflecting your life story, and the best bonus? She shares this townhouse with two other friends, each with their very own take on personal decor- check out all three apartments in the article!
I am loving this giant cactus! It’s like a piece of sculpture and also reminds her of her home state of Texas.
I die over that mantle, original to the apartment. Also, let’s talk about how the grey violet wall color is kind of perfect for a modern yet feminine backdrop- for this look try Farrow & Ball’s Callaluna or Brassica! The cross was bought on a trip to Peru and the photographs are of her favorite artists bought in New Orleans.
