Effortless Elegance on the Upper East Side

Jackie Astier is a fashion stylist and the Style Director for Avenue magazine who has also done some interior design. Her latest project is published in latest issue of Elle Decor. In regards to fashion, Astier says, “It’s all in the mix. Its not what you wear, but the way you wear it that makes one look oh-so-perfect in that imperfect way”. She brings the same idea to the table in designing her family’s Upper East Side apartment.

I love the jewel-toned velvets and plush textures against a backdrop of strong neutrals. This space feels warm and inviting, but still maintains an air of elegance.

My favorite part of this room is the sofa at the foot of the bed with the glamourous rectangular table. I am also in love with the glossy ceiling and mercurized glass pendant light!
