Layers and Layers in New York City

Thursday, July 26, 2012

I just had to share these images I found in The New York Social Diary.  This is the apartment of Charles Krewson, a self-taught Interior Decorator based in New York.  The spaces are a mix of collected art, antiques, and family pieces that are casually combined for a comfortable, homey feel.  There's nothing too precious or pretentious, just layers of meaningful stuff.  I think this apartment is all about mood - and I find it completely charming. See what you think.
It's not slick or hip (well ... maybe the coffee table)

Those are Ikea bookcases that Krewson had gold-leafed. The turtle fabric on vintage chair is Donghia.

Krewson has amassed quite an art collection, and it's displayed on every available surface.

More of the art collection is displayed in the hallway.  The rug is from West Elm.

Layers and art in the Master Bedroom.

The night stands are were rescued from a Fraternity House, and they're combined with antique brass sconces.

The carpet in the tv room pays homage to his father's Military service.

Wow. Thanks for this post, Kim. Not only did I love studying his style, but the link to the NY Social Dairy was great. What a read. Always love your blog :)

I will always love a home filled with art and books, even when there is a little more color than I like :)

I always admire a home full of art - even if it is overflowing with it! It reflects what appears to be a very curious, fascinating person!

Love how real it looks. The juxtaposition of the furnishings is inviting & not so overly staged. Great post!

Lots of great colors down to the coast guard carpet.
