We have Elle Decor’s most popular rooms of the week, via ElleDecor.com
The living room of São Paulo–based designer Sig Bergamin’s Manhattan apartment. The ottoman, linen-covered chairs, and velvet armchair, which has a back upholstered in a Braquenié cotton, are by Bergamin. The photograph of Gisele Bündchen is by Michel Comte; the antique bone-inlaid screen was found in India.
In the master bedroom of this Notting Hill home, gold glass cabinets, purchased at the Battersea antiques fair, flank a custom-made bed; the lamps and mirrored screen are 1970s French, the 1950s armchair is Italian, the vanity by Osvaldo Borsani dates from the same era, and the photograph above it is by Derek Henderson.
Mark Zeff designed the master bath’s walls and floors; they are sheathed in travertine, and the shower is tiled with Cipollino tumbled marble. Click here for a full tour of Hilary’s gorgeous Manhattan apartment.
In the compact guest bedroom of the London townhouse she shares with her family, hotelier and designer Kit Kemp used a black-and-white Brunschwig & Fils toile de Jouy for the walls, canopy, pillows, and bedding; the artwork is by Dick Bixby, and the faux-shagreen table is Kemp’s own design.
Check out this colorful installation with Toronto’s glowing downtown skylight as a backdrop. In their three-dimensional interactive installation named AMAZE, design and research laboratory UNSTABLE created a multisensory experience for their users.
