Interiors: Gossip Girl

Of course there is the fashion. But there's also the Eye candy from the set of our guilty pleasure, tv show Gossip Girl.I must say I completely fell in love with the Eames chair re-upholstered in a Missoni Fabric, the one in the fictional Home Office of Lily*sigh*

“The van der Woodsen apartment is composed of clean, simple lines, shapes and rhythms. But in keeping with Upper East Side tradition, it is still very formal in its presentation and layout.”-Loren Weeks(production designer)

By Amy Gartrell
Weeks used artwork from artists tied to the Art Production Fund organization, which is a non-profit devoted to exposing new audiences to contemporary art, to decorate the house.

Lilly’s work space at the base of the stairs is an eclectic mix of refined pieces (like her Louis-style desk) and avant-garde items (faux-cowhide rug). The Eames-style lounge chair with the Missoni fabric was one of many inspired moves by set decorator, Christina Tonkin.

The main living room, the kitchen, the dining room—they all flow together, but they’re defined by columns and a change in the floor material.
.:Loving the center piece:.

When it came to decorating Serena’s bedroom, Loren Weeks wanted the space to reflect the teen’s personality. “Her room shows a confident, eclectic mix of funky new and classic vintage items,” says Weeks, who decorated with bold patterns and metallic accents. “I wanted it to express her character: effortlessly beautiful and self-assured.” He has no problem mixing metals either—the room features gold, silver and bronze accents.

The bedding is a mix of Barbara Barry and L’Erba, in the Private Sanctuary pattern.

  1. Sharon....I am so glad you saw my post. I was going to tell you that I was featuring your beautiful island...but decided to surprise!

    Now go show us more of this paradise Mark Twain calls the original Heaven. Is their an old historic city? What is your fave area?

    Your post was great, btw!

  2. And what a lovely surprise it is!:)
    I am planning to. As teaser:

    We're an ancient French colony(although, Mauritius was discovered by the dutch, who, in the process, killed all our Dodo-big native birds unique to us- and also introduced the sugar cane)which thrived on the sugar-cane industry and the British took over after a famous naval battle. Our capital, was moved from Grand-Port(south east coast)to Port-Louis(West Coast) because it is protected by a mountain range-we're a volcanic island with no active volcano's- this was mainly to be able to protect the bay, which served as an important Port in the route to India...we have the best&harmonious mix of culture and ethnicity, for the 'Creoles' are the descendants of slaves, the 'sino-mauritians'immigrants came to develop trade, the hindus, including muslims, originate from India and mainly came as indentured labourers after the abolition of slavery. The Whites are of course descendants of Colons... A lot has happened since 1968, the year we gained independence and became a republic in 1992.
    Still fab things going on and hopefully more to come, without losing our unique touch, this intangible thing which Mark Twain has probably feeled when he got inspired^^ and that so many tourists say they loved and shall cherish.

    There are so many incredible places, many I have yet to discover myself;) I promise to post about each:)
