Maria's Gramercy Glam

House Call

Name: Maria
Location: Gramercy, NYC

I bought my two bedroom post war co-op around 18 months ago, and have been renovating it ever since. (I think it's beautiful!) My living room is a real mid century gem — I've bought a lot of furniture on eBay, and there is a beautiful blending of wood, taupes and creams.

Throughout the apartment, I have installed mirrored French doors (inspired by the NY London hotel) so you have this really glam feel. My bedroom is more old Hollywood boudoir — mirrored 30s furniture, sumptuous lavender silk bed with the same drapes, fringed with black beading. The bathroom is very different from most Manhattan apartments — very European spa with mother-of-pearl colored marble. And, my spare room is deep red with black trimmings. A good use of color throughout. I think it really reflects me — a glamorous, sophisticated woman in the city!

Thanks Maria!
