Jules' Apartment

















Here are some pictures of an apartment I have been working on lately with Jules, it's gorgeous owner! She has been so fun to work with and she is so easy as she loves everything I show her! I just adore her Art Deco apartment and I love the very thrown together, imperfect sort of a mix we have created which is what she wanted from the outset - she didn't want it to look like I had been there!! Thanks for being such a lovely, lovely client Jules, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you on this project and I can't wait till the wallpaper in the hallway goes up! I'll be sure to post pictures of that once it's done!!

Beautiful apartment. I love the lamps in the bedroom are they from your shop? Also the black cabinet is beautiful.

Anna Spiro said...

Hi Nicole, the lamps were a pair of vintage ones that Jules had but we made new shades for them for her! The cabinet was a brown timber colour before and we painted it in a black gloss which looks fantastic with her floors!

Anna - this place is STUNNING! my apartment isn't quite art deco (unfortunately VERY FAR from art deco..) but my goodness if I could try and create a quarter of the style in this place I would be one very happy girl. Thank you so much for sharing it! x

Anna Spiro said...

Thanks Kimberlee - yes it so simply beautiful! xxAnna

Hi Anna, I love looking at your blog. It is like a sipping a warm cup of tea - soul soothing. I've only recently discovered you and I am feeling quite inspired. I thought the lamps were beautiful, too. If you were searching for something similar on ebay, what sort of search words would you be best to use. Did you cover them with fabric? Thanks, Lisa.

Leets said...

Love the use of colour. Particularly like the ottoman. Well done - it's a gorgeous apartment.

Anna Spiro said...

Thanks lmb - I would try searching under vintage lamp, alabaster lamp, marble lamp etc.

Anna Spiro said...

Thanks Leets!

That Girl Designs said...

Fabulous! This is so wonderfully put together.

FancyPants-design said...

So far so good!! It's not done yet..? Looks beautiful!! I looove that black and white arm chair!!

Liesel said...

That bedside table with all of the books and magazines is so nice. I can't think of a more comforting spot than a bed with a bedside table covered in books to dive into. Does Jules need a roomie?

Kirsten said...

The Ottoman is gorgeous and I love the black and white pillows!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

This is just lovely!! I'm loving the pops of color against the whites throughout the home. And it's all so easy to add to and change around/swap in new pieces in the future without having to make any "big" changes (to major furniture pieces). And the chartreuse garden stool against the black wing chair -- fan-tas-tic. Makes me want to upholster my wing chair. :-) Thank you for sharing.

Can I ask, who makes the fabric put on the lamp shades? I would love it for my lamp I am needing a new shade for!

Thanks,
Irene

Beautiful job!

Villa Anna said...

Anna!! Bravo!! It's stunning!!

That black and white window seat had me gasping. Your signature style is ever so colourful and classy and elegant.

Did you or Jules make the shadow boxes or were they a purchase?

Anna :)

Sharnel @ The Cupcake Company said...

The apartment is perfect - but in a not so perfect way LOL. Just the way Jules wanted it. I love the fabric on the ottoman. And the repainted black bookcase & chair.
Also love the subway tile in the kitchen!
Loving your work!

Roxanne said...

Love the apartment inside and out--especially the bedroom with the lamps and the set of black and white pillows--also that shot of green next to the black chair is beautiful.

Louise said...

OMG, OMG, Show me more PLEASE. This unit is amazing, beautiful and full of fresh enthusiasm and life. The owner must be very creative and energetic to live in these colourful and vibrant surrounds. Anna, what a fabulous job you have done in putting this altogether so contently - if there is more to show, we would love to see. Louise

Am in mad passionate love with that black bookshelf cabinet - inspires me to paint some of my all white furniture a glossy black ...

k-a-t-e said...

Anna you have an amazing talent. Such drool worthy interiors. Perfect placement and colours... you make my place look instantly dated!

IRENE said...

Anna, this is just great. I think one of the best pieces of work you've shown us. If I were an editor, I'd be mad not to include this in my mag! Well done!
