COLLECTIBLE STYLE IN A ONE BEDROOM NYC APARTMENT - BEFORE & AFTER

Blue and white living room in Rebecca de Ravenel's New York apartment with a blue and white sofa, white armchair, blue and white striped rug and an ottoman style coffee table

Should start off by saying Happy Halloween. Was walking to get my morning tea and ran into someone dressed as a headless horseman...hmmm...Happy Halloween?

Anyhooo...Love this cute 1250 square foot, one bedroom, one bath, West Village apartment in New York City. It was transformed into a beautiful tropical feeling space filled with personal collected items by French socialite Rebecca de Ravenel. Rebecca's New York City apartment is featured on Vogue magazine's website.

Rebecca moved into the space and transformed it with vintage finds from antique and flea markets, treasures from her family, and pieces from her travels.  Beautiful textiles from Raul Textiles and Quadrille in vibrant blues and whites.

Before, she did her magic, the apartment was a nice but regular garden space in desperate need of a face lift.  Heres is the before and after!

P.S. COCOCOZY PRESS ALERT - Forgot to let you know that our COCOCOZY Loop Rug in Pink made the pages of Luxe Magazine in the Octoher 2013 issue! Was so excited to see our rug on the same page as some very prestigious brands! Also a little surreal as well!  Best of friend AM is a huge fan of all things pink.  She chose this color pink for the COCOCOZY collection...AM should be proud that her pink colorway pick made the pages of a glossy magazine!
