Admittedly, I’ve been slacking on the blog a bit due to overwhelming amounts of work that has consumed my life as of recent. But while I haven’t been blogging on the regular, I have been working on several exciting projects offline. I’m excited to share a story I wrote for the Fall edition of the Home Observer about the fashionable, Upper East Side apartment of InStyle publisher Connie Anne Phillips. The studio apartment was designed by Elizabeth Bauer who created a colorful, glamorous, Parisian-inspired retreat for Phillips to live in temporarily while her dream apartment is being gut renovated. (Bauer is designing that space too!) Photographer Emily Gilbert captured Phillips’ studio beautifully and I’d love for you to check out the full article – titled “Paris, Uptown” – which also includes Elizabeth Bauer’s secrets for living large in a small space. Click the cover of the Home Observer below to check out the entire issue including my article on page 49!
