We were catching up on Vogue.com early this morning and came across the fabulous New York City apartment of Rebecca de Ravenel. Rebecca is the founder of Goombay Bazaar, a traveling pop-up shop that sells one-of-a-kind wares from all over the world. Her one bedroom West Village apartment is full of vintage and antique finds from the Bahamas as well as some of our favorite antique malls in Stamford, CT. We love how she stuck with a palette of blue and white throughout the entire apartment. Below, a vintage sofa found in Stamford upholstered in a Raoul paisley. The mantle (below), not original to the apartment, was brought in by Rebecca.
All of the rattan and bamboo furniture pieces in the space really make you feel like you could be at some island retreat. Not a typical way to furnish a NYC apartment, but it works!Another Raoul fabric used on the tuxedo sofa in a different part of the large living room. Rebecca was able to make lots of different patterns work together by sticking with just blue and white. Probably the only fabric in the space that isn’t blue or white, this multi color Suzani print table skirt on her desk lightens the mood and brightens up the palette. A sweet wicker side table…Rattan side tables circle a modern Saarinen table. The bedroom walls are papered in a paisley by Quadrille. Does anyone know what fabric was used for the canopy?
