Fit for a Queen

One of my best friends is moving into a new one bedroom Brooklyn apartment and asked me to help her come up with a plan for family room. Ok she didn't ask me, I took it upon myself to come up with a mood board as how I pictured her new living space.

This girl is one of the most fashion forward girls I know, she has been that way since the day I met her. She has a taste for the finer things in life and was the first (and I think only still) friend to own a Chanel bag AND a Fendi spy bag...hot damn :)

She loves modern and does not want the cluttered look- actually she told me that she wants a man to be able to walk into her apartment and just know who she is and what shes about. The look I was going for is a glamorous-worldly-fashion forward-modern-ethnic-chic with a twistlook

I sent her this look and she loved it. Maybe a few tweaks here and there, but overall it was a winning look.

I've already told her if she doesn't take before and after pictures of this room I will disown her as a friend. Just kidding of course, but I said my blog readers would be very upset, wouldn't you all??

We definitely want to see the before and after. I'm in love with the sofa and the coffee table.

Leila the sofa is from Jayson Home & Garden and the table is the Montauk Coffee Table by James Duncan- hope that helps :)

We'd be upset indeed! I think your mood board hits the nail on the head. The coffee table is fabulous and I love the wall of black and white photos. Very cool!
