As some of you may or may not know, I’m currently in the midst of trying to buy some real estate in Manhattan. After 24 years of living in some kind of shared housing, I’m ready to take my shoe boxes and makeup bags and find a place to call my own home. The past three years, I’ve lived in an apartment that I’ve decorated only with beauty loot, waiting until I have my own space to bust out the creative design cap. And that moment, my friends, may be sooner rather than later.
So it is with fortuitous timing that one of my favorite design firms, Yabu Pushelberg, publishes its first book, a portfolio of their gorgeous interior designs, that I will be sure to take much of my inspiration from. Anyone who has walked into Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, stayed at the St Regis Hotel in San Francisco or dined at Fin in Las Vegas has experienced the duo’s amazing creations brought to life. While I am a shameless viewer of all sorts of ah “design porn,” I was particularly drawn to the images of the private residences featured in the book. Yabu Pushelberg isn’t available to purchase for a few more weeks but I got my hands on an advance copy and snapped a few pictures below the cut of my favorite spreads to give TDO readers a sneak peek. (As you can see, I’m a particularly big fan of their “clustering” technique- be it mirrors, artwork, or pillows).
The entire book is available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
