Hearst Magazine-Cinema Style

Last week I was invited to preview Hearst Magazine's show house, Designer Visions, Cinema Style at 1212 Fifth Avenue.  Since movie's and design are my favorite subjects I knew I was in for something good and was not disappointed.  Of course it was a perfect match that Heather Moore, of Jed Johnson designed an apartment for Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick since Jed Johnson was Warhol's long time love. Heather used the movie Factory Girl starring Sienna Miller as her jumping off point but made her apartment for a present day Edie- married and with a daughter for House Beautiful.  The apartment was filed with original art and pics of Edie at her heyday.

 A swing for 'little Edie".

Here's a bit of rare footage of Edie

I love that Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier Company used the offbeat film Igby Goes Down to create a chic, classically inspired apartment with quirky details for Town and Country that would be perfect for Igby's mother played by Susan Sarandon.  If you haven't seen Igby you are missing a really funny movie with a fab cast, which features in addition to Sarandon, Kieran Culkin, Amanda Peet, Clair Danes and Jeff Goldblum.
Check out the Vintage Eames Chair from ABC Home.
Don't you love the kitchen light!

Thomas O'Brien of Aero Studios used muted colors and elegant furnishings to create a mood inspired by the film Someone To Watch Over Me starring Mimi Rogers for Veranda Magazine.
I love how the Wall fabric by Katie Leede and Company gives the room movement and coziness at the same time.
I can't tell you how many people kept wandering into this great shower by S. Russell Groves.
