The Apartment Where Time Stood Still

I have blogged about her before, but I think that Jamie Beck is one of the most talented photographers out there, bar none.  And this set of pictures from her “At Home With” series had me riveted.  It’s the apartment of a woman in her 90’s on Central Park South where it appears that it’s still the 50’s and Don Draper could walk through the door at any minute and offer you a cocktail.  There are so many interesting details that remind me of current trends, it shows you that almost everything in design is influenced by times past. Can’t you just imagine the life of this woman from these images of her home? The hot pink chairs, the glamorous vanity, the stocked bar and breathtaking views…. I can practically smell the Chanel No. 5 and hear the clinking of martini glasses….
