Rita Konig decorates

I really love Rita Konig but I'm going to be honest, I haven't sen much of her work beside her own homes (which I love). So when I saw this apartment decorated by her I couldn't pass and not share. Nobody lives here, it's a show house at the newly developed Manhattan House. Show houses always look pretty good but cold and lifeless, Rita made it work here, with warm colors and lively details. Who doesn't love her bars and bedrooms? 


What are your weekend plans? We are going to Whole Foods tomorrow to do grocery shopping for Sunday, excited to be hosting a dinner "party". I didn't know the London WF was the second biggest one (in the world?)

  1. I am loving the built in bookshelves in the living room... I wish we had built ins! A lot of dusting though. That wallpaper in the bath is pretty cool too. Love Whole Foods. xo
