Living With Great Style

Thompson Sisters: Victoria

When I’m looking for a little inspiration I’m usually attracted to things I don’t normally go for. Weird right? When I was thumbing (clicking, I like to think that it’s printed magazine) through Lonny’s third issue, I was drawn to the Thompson sister’s apartments. They are world’s apart in terms of design, yet Antonia and Victoria live in the same building.

Victoria’s inspiration comes from the 50s and 60s. Her apartment is filled with bright patterns, Lucite, and lots of texture. If feels as though you should be in Palm Beach, not New York.

What I’m drawn to the most is the color palette. The turquoise and chartreuse are refreshing.
One thing that Lonny Magazine does a fabulous job at is featuring bars. Since they started I’ve been wanting one in my apartment. Once I move into a bigger apartment I hope to have a bar just like the one above. My favorite part is the apple, it’s perfectly placed.
I’ve been inspired by the way people display their jewelry. I think putting the jewels you wear the most on a tray is the perfect way to have them on a dresser. That way you can quickly put the last touches of your outfit on in the morning.
Ok, I’m a HUGE tray lover. Probably because when you put items on trays it makes a room feel more organized. More importantly, I’ve been trying to find a heart-shaped bowl (like the one above). Does anyone know where it’s from?
What an amazing desk. Other than the fact that everything is perfectly placed, the desk itself is great. I think anyone would love a desk that has a place to store magazines. I know I do.

Some of Victoria’s favorite places: Apartment 48, Global Table, and Haus Interior in New York. Cashmere Buffalo and C. Bell in West Palm Beach.

Later today, I’ll be posting on Antonia’s apartment.

    Some of the details here… The armchair from ebay, the golden apple, the poster with random letters above the desk… Love.

    I loved this spread too! And I also noticed the plethora of BARS that grace the pages of Lonny each issue. Love it.
