Fashion designer Geoffrey Beene’s home in Honolulu, Hawaii, is an inspiration in design. The black and white abode features three levels and sits right on the Pacific Ocean. It is a vision of grace, energy, and “the skillful use of geometry.” Check out Beene’s fearless approach to a black and white obsession.

Coco Chanel’s Paris Flat

With Valentine’s Day approaching we are feeling romantic, and this Paris flat is a grand example….

The original 31 Rue Cambon is the flat above the Chanel Boutique. This luxurious flat retains the decor chosen by Chanel herself and is used for photo shoots and press interviews.  Simply beautiful…and romantic…

Feeling Green…

With spring just around the corner…we think…we are feeling green today and have found some cool ideas for your Bethlehem apartment.  With snow still on the ground in Pennsylvania, this may be a refreshing change of view. We hope so…Love this hip modern living room with lime green walls and accent pieces.  The pillows are gorgeous, and the chairs quite chic.  Found at Lime Light Interiors.ca.

Donna Karan’s  Floral Valley Bedding collection is just right or a green touch to your Bethlehem apartment bedroom.

We find this sage green kitchen refreshing and soothing.  Note the palm plant near the window which adds interest and highlights the empty space. Take some of the hints here to highlight your own kitchen in your Bethlehem apartment.

A clock is always essential in your living space and this smart green find we think is precious…for good reason.  We found this Green dots wall wooden wall clock at The Frog and the Princess….it may be kids stuff, but who will know if they find this in your Bethlehem apartment.

Okay, so I couldn’t resist this one. Having once lived in an apartment that was in an older house, we had antique glass door knobs like these on all the doors, though they were clear white glass.  Found these green depression glass handles at Remodelista.com.

The bathroom is perhaps the coolest place to add a touch of green. Green is a relaxing color, soothes emotions, and steadies heart rhythms.  Green is the color of the heart chakra center. Decorating your Bethlehem apartment bathroom with accessories that feature some green tones, like these from DKNY, will give a subtle hint of this relaxing color.

We love the soft green colors in this Tiffany-style lamp.  The one sitting on my desk right now has the same base. We found this beauty for your Bethlehem apartment at Glassical.com.Artwork is always the final touch to your new apartment.  This green-toned oil on canvas is called Green Agave by Rhonda Raulston.  This would be a nice final touch to any open wall space in your Bethlehem apartment.

Apartment Inspiration

Tamara Mellon, co-founder and President of the Jimmy Choo Company, famous for its top-of-the-line chic shoes, made a move to New York City last year and her apartment is sheer inspiration…Why not take some ideas and decorate your Allentown apartment with a similar color scheme. The browns and peaces with chartreuse chairs are delicious.

and a glamorous apartment it is, to go with a glamorous woman.  Tamara had her apartment designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard and describes it as: “my own signature look, something that is both modern and old and glamorous, a bit of 70s but a bit minimal.” Enhance your Allentown apartment with some ques from this glam room:

Love the 70s feel here…and all the white shagginess of it all….Give your Allentown apartment a comfy feel with soft throws and pillows too numerous to count tossed on a L-shaped couch.

You can add a spark to any room, as Tamara does here with a light-up neon sign expressing “love” and splash some color in your Allentown apartment with a big red chandelier.  We love chandeliers!

And really, what could a girl want more than a closet full of Jimmy Choos? I dare you to answer that one.  And what a closet?! I wish I could fit this one, shoes and all, in my Allentown apartment, of course I’d have to get like six jobs to afford all these shoes….it would be worth it, if I had time to wear them.

Apartment Style

Michael Kors is even ultra chic at home in this stylish apartment with a black and white look, here with masculine and feminine touches from the popular fashion designer seen on Project Runway.

What we love: The zebra carpet, clean spaced black and white kitchen with island stools, and the furry pillows and throws.

Modern Inspiration

Fashion designer Donna Karan’s Central Park West apartment is “zen modern” inspiration.

“My home celebrates my family and friends, art and culture, and it holds the memories that are a part of who I am,” says Donna Karan.

Ms. Karan’s fall fashion is predominantly black which we see as a reflection of her sleek black and white interior space.

What we love:  The use of photography are, framed, standing in wide curtain-less windows in dining room and bath, the ladder towel rack in last photo, large artworks that practically span entire walls, and large cushioned window seats.
