Japanese-Inspired Apartment in New York

japanese_inspired_interiorMy friend Gwynne McCue’s interior design projects are full of creativity. I thought I’d share her latest project, a tri-plex apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan designed for a single woman with a  love of Japan.

The dining room cleverly converts from Western- to Eastern-style dining. Love that idea. And the pillows throughout were made from vintage Asian textiles.

    I agree! I think there are a lot of clever elements in this home. I particularly love the East/West dining table.

  2. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;
