New York Dream Home

In last month's Veranda, a gorgeous townhouse located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan was featured...it completely blew me away. I'll admit that I can be a superficial shelter mag reader and often just cruise the photos on my first pass through. So, it wasn't until I was in one of my favorite Dallas boutiques, Madison, that I came to find out that homeowner is none other than Kelli Ford. Along with her sister, Kirsten Fitzgibbons, Kelli owns Madison. The sister duo also runs Kirsten Kelli, LLC - the design firm behind the stunning interiors shown below. I just love their style...super luxe and chic, but never fussy. Here are my favorite shots from the spread:

This staircase is amazing...according to Veranda it was created by architect Peter Pennoyer who led the home's major renovation.

Modern art and graphic patterns keep the room fresh. You can't see it from this view, but my coveted Hermes Avalon blanket is in here :)

What a fantastic bedroom. Besides the bed, the curtains are my favorite element...I'm officially obsessed with gold rods/rings now! This is a perfect example of how a neutral palette can be dynamic.

While I love a white kitchen, this one reminds me that the look of dark cabinetry can be so sophisticated. The mix of metals used in the room is fabulous too.

The stately exterior...

Finally, here's another example of Kirsten Kelli's work that I just had to include because it's breathtaking...particularly the floors!

  2. Love it...the art is way too modern for me but to each her own! My fav. is the first picture with the stairs and that couch in the same shot!

  3. This is just what my apartment looks like in NYC, Kyle :)
