A Charming Little Place

I'm completely charmed by this quaint NYC apartment recently featured in the pages of Traditional Home. Lately, I can't get enough of striped loveseats, and have fallen in love with this Mitchell Gold "Odette Sofette" upholstered in classic ticking. The two dainty Swedish occasional tables in front are its perfect complement.
I love the way designer Suzanne Grua McGrath managed to take a small space and infuse it with so much style. The pops of yellow really do it for me, as well as the repeating element of black accents and lines. It gives bone and structure to the space.
I was delighted to read that both of these pieces, the chest of drawers and the chair, were vintage finds brought back to life with a little paint, upholstering, and hardware update.
And a sweet, little breakfast nook. Dainty, functional, and irresistibly cute!

Hello Crystal,

Agreed! This is such a welcoming room. I, too, love that beautiful sofa. It's just so unique, yet quite classic. I don't think I could ever tire of looking at it. Also, those little tables are so perfect! They are just too cute.

I hope you are having a great week so far -- I can't wait to see what you have in store next :)
