If you think all ballerinas live in a loft in Soho with bars on the
walls and leather sofas then you may be mistaken.  This beautiful 4,700
sf apartment at the Dakota building in New York City proves that nothing
further than that concept.  This ballerina apartment abounds with color
on the walls, hand painted de Gournay wallpaper, sumptuous crystal
chandeliers and a four poster mirrored bed just to mention a few of its
proving points.  The overall atmosphere in this apartment is a refined
and feminine space with a mélange of 50’s and 70s pieces enveloped in
jewel colors.  The unique design of the space is the work of Interior
Designer Sasha Bikoff.

I’m loving Chanel late style bags.  The perfume bottle shaped evening bag is especially
chic, fun and playful.  I have always loved everything Chanel but
haven’t felt the same about its classic
flap bags.  Chanel is an iconic brand and everything that carries its
name has a strong identity, principally the flap bags.  You can spot
them a mile away.  I’m happy Karl Lagerfeld is bringing in new bag
design styles as the Boy Chanel and other fun playful
kinds.  I think it targets a younger crowd while refreshing the image
of the brand.  Enjoy!

Swan: Legends of the Jet Society book gives us a glance into the aristocratic world of the privileged and
jet setters.  Written by Nicholas Foulkes, the book is full of
beautiful images and anecdotes detailing the luxurious lifestyle of an
elite way of life. 
Traveling in private jets and luxurious yachts, throwing decadent
parties and wearing haute couture are some of the indulges we get to see
in this book.  Clearly a must-have book to any chic library.

Given that celebrities like glamorous and alluring spaces, it’s not
surprising that Cameron Diaz apartment in Manhattan’s West Village is
full of shiny and lustrous surfaces.  Cameron’s apartment has a hue
palette that ranges from soothing
pinks, emerald-green kitchen cabinets, mirror tiles in the bathroom and
dazzling brass counter top in the kitchen.  Enjoy
