A Jewel of a Space

This fabulous all-blue apartment on the Upper East Side of New York is home to jewelry designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac. Her love of colour and 1960's design, along with French influences, such as the ornamentation of Versailles, have blended together to create this utterly chic space. The apartment is three floors above the designer's jewelry shop. Talk about a short commute!

I love the beautiful blue used throughout the flat, as well as the pops of pink, purple, and green, that stunningly huge and shapely mirror in the lounge, designed by Piero Lissoni for Glass Italia, the velvet-covered Panton chairs, Tom Dixon bubble lights, and the "Circus" wallpaper by Cole and Son, used in the bathroom.

Every single item in the home is exquisitely curated. Not surprising, coming from the eye of such a talented jewelry designer. She certainly knows how to make the most of something small. The apartment measures just 70 square metres, but it seems like a delightful little world of its own, a wonderful respite from the city.
