When I saw Rebecca de Ravenel’s New York city home this weekend I had two thoughts: 1. I’ve found a style soul mate and 2. this is going to be posted everywhere, but I need to talk about it. Why did I feel so compelled to share? Well, this is one of those rare gems I loved so completely at first sight it made me think: “Yes, that’s it. That’s my style exactly.”
The blue and white color palette, island influences (from time spent living/working in the Bahamas), and a well edited collection of curiosities picked up along her travels and family mementos just spoke to me. Not to mention the Raoul textiles, China Seas wallpaper, and D. Porthault linens… sigh.
These are going straight to the inspiration files (aka Pinterest)! In case you’re as obsessed as I am, I rounded up a few pieces inspired by Rebecca’s NYC oasis. I think I’ve hit my animal art limit in our apartment, but if there was room for one more piece, this would be it.
