Olympia's Apt in NYC

We stayed at our best friend Olympia's place in New York and it is such a paradise! We always have the most killer time together, especially with Eloise her Jack Russell! Eloise is one of the cutest pooches we know and she loves being photographed and is obsessed with her one eyed dirty old panda toy named "baby" who she kisses all day! "Baby" has to be put in the freezer at night otherwise Eloise obsesses and doesn't sleep! Haha! Olympia and her parents magically renovated and decorated her Soho apt a few months ago and made her amazing home into a beachy, relaxing and inspiring haven...you forget you are living in NY! She collects Paris Vogues, vintage lace garments from the flea market, turquoise jewelry, Mexican hand painted skulls and loves pink peonies. Olympia is an extremely talented artist and fashion designer and all of the artwork on the walls is done by her. Her pencil drawings are so realistic and breathtaking! Her mom, Michelle Lloyd is an amazing interior designer who is based in Toronto and Miami and Olympia simply learned from the best!

The artwork in Olympia's apartment is so beautiful, and it's even more impressive that she has created it all herself. i'm very impressed.

That is one glam space! I love how she's maximized the size of her bedroom/apt. with the soft colour palette.

Beautiful everything! Makes me wanna sort my casa out now!

Eloise looks like such a cute pooch! I'm coveting that desk chair, it's so fancy! I can't wait to be able to afford re-decorating my home with new/vintage furniture and decor in the future...

Ever since moving into a new place my obsession from clothes has moved to furniture and home-wares, and I have to say her place is amazing. Rather jealous!

The Style Crusader said...

These images are gorgeous. I love how clean and fresh her place looks and the vintagey elements that make it unique. Really inspiring photos. Am moving soon and these have given me lots of good decorating ideas! xx

love it! even though her apartment is tiny (which is par for the course here in nyc), she's managed to make it look chic and spacious. and kudos to her for the walk-in closet!
