You never know what’s inside these Upper East Side buildings. It could be a young couple with two kids and a living room that doubles as a playroom, it could be an old lady hoarder who hasn’t left the apartment in 30 years, a single man with graffitied walls or it could be a really chic art collecting woman… like in this case.
I did a consultation at this UES apartment for a custom piece of art. After welcoming me graciously, the owner then scolded me for going to fearlessly going into a stranger’s home. (She should only KNOW! The life of a blogger is a riddled with dangers considering half the people we know, we met off the internet- which circa 1995 was the best way to get raped or killed and nows a pretty good way to meet like minded folk and even a spouse.)
The owner just moved in not too long ago, and I was so happily surprised by her charmingly decorated place! I mean, obviously, if she likes my art, she must have good taste (wink, wink) but still. You never know what you are going to get.
It’s not every day that you stumble upon a white fringed sofa, traditional and modern pieces living happily together, and a fabulous collection of art.
