I love those classic brownstone buildings in New York; tall imposing sombre structures from the outside and eclectic, elegant and urban on the inside.
They open up a myriad of possibilities when renovating whether you keep it clean and classic or go urban and modern. But for me, I love an eclectic mix... a kind of, bit of this and bit of that which shows a diverse palette and an eye for adventure.
The crystal pendants, the beautiful doorway, the walls laden with artwork and mirrors, the marble in the dining room... I love it all in this home.
Keeping up with stripes... an alternative to colour blocking, the classic pin stripe comes clean in this outfit of silk shirt, blue jeans, grey blazer and neutral clutch.
And although it might borrow from the ubiquitous 80's with the blazer and jean combo, this striped shirt look will never date. Whether tucked into jeans giving them a dressed up look or left hanging out on top of a pencil skirt with a thin belt to finish it off, it will take you from work, to drinks to dinner and back home again.
