When I was younger I, like most young girls, had so many dreams for the future. One in particular was my dream of becoming a translator for the United Nations, fueled by my love of the french language. I fancied myself living a very sophisticated life in a high-rise apartment in NYC, far from the small town of Pacific Grove where I lived. Fast forward more years than I care to count and my life in no way resembles that dream other than my continued love of the french language. (check out french word a day blog where you will receive a new word each day if you, too, enjoy this beautiful language).
Fortunately for me I am able to relive the sophisticated apartment aspect of my fantasies through Olivia Pope’s antics on the popular new show Scandal. I love her elegant apartment and I only wish I preferred red wine over my favored chardonnay so I could drink it in a large balloon wine glass with the longest stem I have ever seen. All this while sitting around my beautifully styled living room in white satin pajamas. The soft, neutral colors, mix of wood and metal and a combination of contemporary lines and modern artwork paired with traditional moldings and rug really appeals to me and is similar to how I decorate my own home.
Architectural Digest has made it possible for us to take a close look at the “apartment” and other sets and offers some insight from the set designers as to why they made their design decisions. You can read that article here and below is just a teaser at the eye candy you will find in the latest issue.
