This whimsical light-filled loft houses Milly's design studio, sitting 20 floors above street level in the heart of Manhatten's garment district. Milly's creator Michelle Smith wanted the space to reflect the style of Milly's brand -clean, smart, sexy, and glamorous. Sophisticated yet whimsical. Tailored yet chic. Pristine white walls are filled with bursts of colur in the form of bright prints and hues that have helped to inspire the Milly collection.
The mix of vintage and modern can be seen in the sturdy French love seat and matching chairs that have been reupholstered in Milly's signature chain-link jacquard in shocking pink. The very stylish lucite chairs and sputnik chandelier, not to mention the vivid bolts of wonderful fabric creates an energetic atmosphere that I would love to re-create. All on a budget of course!
Its clear I have my work cut out for me but I'm glad to have stolen a glimpse into this glorious showroom inspired by the iconic Holly Golightly and Lana Turner. A practical office and a comfortable home for racks and racks of beautiful frocks all in one. A tall order certainly but one that will hopefully inspire me to create my own stylish haven!
