We were catching up on Vogue.com early this morning and came across the fabulous New York City apartment of Rebecca de Ravenel. Ravenel is
the founder of Goombay Bazaar, a traveling pop-up shop that sells one-of-a-kind
wares from all over the world. Her one bedroom West Village apartment is full
of vintage and antique finds from the Bahamas as well as some of our favorite
antique malls in Stamford, CT. We love how she stuck with a palette of blue and
white throughout the entire apartment.
A vintage sofa found in Stamford upholstered in a Raoul paisley.
The mantle, not original to the apartment, was brought in by Ravenel.
All of the rattan and bamboo furniture pieces in the space really make you feel like you could be at some island retreat. Not a typical way to furnish a NYC apartment, but it works!
Another Raoul fabric used on the tuxedo sofa in a different part of the large living room. Ravenel was able to make lots of different patterns work together by sticking with just blue and white.
Probably the only fabric in the space that isn’t blue or white, this multi color Suzani print table skirt on her desk lightens the mood and brightens up the palette.
A sweet wicker side table…
Rattan side tables circle a modern Saarinen table.
The bedroom walls are papered in a paisley by Quadrille.
The powder room covered in another Quadrille wallpaper.
With a little wallpaper and some great art, her tiny NYC kitchen is all charm. We just fell in love with this apartment, did you?
