No beige walls here...

Do you dare to love this home as much as I do?!?! Straight from my vault of favorites is this Manhattan townhouse, designed by Wayne Nathan and Carol Egan, that showcases a classic royal style, with a twist of modern!


"One of the reasons we chose Wayne and Carol was that unlike some of the other designers we interviewed, they didn't suggest we gut the place and beige it all up"...


and this is certainly the case...owners Lauren Schor, and her husband, have a home now that maintains its existing royal provenance, with a more casual, liveable sense of style!

This home showcases a great collection of contemporary art against a bold and bright backdrop, adding such life to these spaces.

Just love this antique four-poster in the Master Bedroom!


I only wish my room growing up, was half as fun as this one!
