#18 - Sarah's Modern Glam Palace

Name: Sarah C.
Location: New York City (Chelsea)
Size & Type: 546 sf Junior 1-bedroom

Favorite resource: Dakota Trimmings and AK Fabrics, both on 39th st between 7th & 8th - to make my own pillow covers, bed spreads, & curtains
Canal Plastics - i made my coffee table legs from custom cut lucite cylinders
White Furniture for modern classic furniture knockoffs

Pitch: Rosie Canyon is a saucy mix of modern minimalism, glam, and DIY touches. Though it's small and architecturally unremarkable, I made the place open, airy, and glamorous. The furniture is low to the ground to give the sense of height and openness and to add drama to the paintings.

Pitch Cont'd: The space is used creatively: my desk is hidden in a glossy wall unit, and handmade red velvet curtains give privacy to the bedroom and dressing area. Hot pink walls, white furniture, gloss, and abstract artwork make my apartment a high femme modern abode.
